Hello! We are Cindy and Oliver and we are deeply grateful for your consideration. We admire your courage and strength as you consider and navigate this difficult decision. Our hearts are filled with so much love and if we are chosen to partner with you on this journey know that your child will be unconditionally loved and supported and raised in a safe and stable home. We hope you enjoy learning about us and we hope to get to know you.
Hello! We are Oliver and Cindy!
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us! We hope as you read our profile that our love for each other, strong sense of family, and our core values will show through our words and photos. We have been together for 14 years strong. Adopting was always part of our future plan, but we didn’t know it would be the only way for us to build our family. We understand and embrace the fact that not all families look alike but that’s what makes this journey so beautiful! We are thankful for the path we’ve taken to get us here and we are open to welcoming a child of any race and gender into our loving family.
Cindy is a such a bright light. She brings so much joy when she walks into a room with her easy going personality and her amazing sense of humor. She is kind and has the biggest heart. With her nurturing personality she is always taking care of everybody first and puts others ahead of herself. She was born and raised in San Francisco and graduated from UC Berkeley. She loves to travel, so she is always planning trips and getaways. When Cindy is not planning our travels or managing our household, she works as an Executive Assistant. She loves her work because she thrives and enjoys the challenges of an always changing and often unpredictable agenda. And if that wasn’t enough when she’s not working her full time job she is also a wedding planner. Her clients love her and her passion shows through her work, her love, and dedication. She balances all the work with lots of fun in our lives and she definitely brings life to everything. There are many traits about Cindy but if there is one thing I love about her is how she takes care of me and everything for us. Her loving nature is pure and genuine and her smile is simply infectious.
Oliver is fun loving, easy going, and the life of the party. His playful personality makes for an instant connection with kids and babies. He grew up surrounded by a large family. They are his core and support system and the reason why Oliver is so energetic and fun. He grew up going on many family road trips and has a great love and appreciation for the outdoors. He enjoys camping, spontaneous trips, and mountain biking. When he’s not outdoors hiking or biking, he is a graphic designer at GAP Inc. headquarters and a professional wedding photographer. He loves both of his jobs because he gets to do what he loves the most, which is photography. At home Oliver is the chef and loves to cook up traditional Filipino dishes. Oliver has a warm heart and a calm demeanor, but is also quite entertaining with his big kid-at-heart silliness and humor. He will break into all sorts of dance moves just to make me laugh. Babies and kids are instantly drawn to his fun yet gentle nature which makes them feel at ease and safe when they are with him. He has so much love and patience and is simply pure joy to be around.
We live in a gated townhome community in Downtown Hayward. We have a 3 level townhome with 3 bedrooms. It is cute and cozy and we love that we made this house our home. We are within walking distance from a large supermarket, small local shops and restaurants, the post office, a newly built city library, a new park, and a Farmer’s market on Saturdays. Our community of neighbors are couples, small families, old and young, lots of kids, and very diverse. It is an active and friendly community and everyone is constantly out walking their dogs, taking a walk, and kids riding their bikes. We have a neighborhood watch program and we all keep vigilant of our homes and each other to keep the community safe.
Oliver’s family consists of his Mom and Dad, two older brothers, and a younger sister. Cindy’s family consists of her Mom and Dad and older brother. We are also supported and loved by our large group of friends who are our chosen family. All of our friends and family have always surrounded us with so much love and have been our greatest supporters for our journey. We have an adorable 12 year old dog named Bear. He is a Puggle (half Pug and half Beagle). He is gentle, loves to cuddle, and plays well with kids. His favorite pastime is eating and sleeping. He is the light and joy of our lives.
More than anything we want you to know your child will be loved unconditionally. We promise to provide an upbringing in which family is a central focus with values such as generosity, kindness, and respect for each other are taught every day. We will encourage and support your child’s hopes and dreams and have a lot of fun along the way.
We welcome your continued engagement in your child’s life. We are happy to send email updates, text messages, and letters. We are open to share major milestones and are more than happy to to set up a private meetings and shared social media page or website where we can post photos and videos online.
Your child will know where he or she came from so that he or she can have an understanding and appreciation for the tremendous sacrifice that you made out of love. We understand you have a difficult decision ahead of you and we are committed to honoring your selfless act through our actions and words and are devoted to always speaking highly of you and your brave decision in the stories we tell the child.
