We are Paul and Quynh. We have been married for 8 years. We decided to pursue adoption after being unable to have our own children and realizing there are so many children in the world that need a warm and loving family. We both love kids and have so much love and happiness to offer your child. Our marriage is a beautiful blend of Asian and American cultures. A child in our family will grow up learning from two unique heritages.
We hope this profile will give you a glimpse of the wonderful life that we can offer your child. We are excited about this opportunity and would consider it an honor if you would like to get to know us better.
Our Inspirations for Our Marriage: Our parents – Paul’s parents have been married for 67 yrs; Quynh’s parents have been married for 50 yrs.
What We Like To Do: We love to travel – US+ Singapore, Grand Cayman, Spain, Canada, and Mexico. We enjoy learning about different cultures, foods, and history. We also enjoy shows and concerts of various music genres, movies, and getting together with friends and family. We can’t wait to share these life experiences with a child.
Our Philosophy about Marriage: We married later in life because marriage is a lifelong commitment and we wanted to be sure that it would be with the right person. We have very different personalities but we listen to each other and work together as a team (we are yin and yang together). We have been so blessed to find each other and can’t wait to share our blessed life with a child.
About Paul (by Quynh)
I am so blessed to have Paul in my life. He provides balance to my life; he is carefree and funny. When he smiles, I can’t help but smile too. Of all his good traits, the qualities that I love most about Paul is his devotion to God, his loyalty to his family and friends, his generosity, and compassion for all mankind and animals. He has the purest heart and would save the world if he could.
About Paul as a father (by Quynh)
Paul loves to spend time with his nieces, nephews, and our friends’ children. He is silly, adventurous, and creative, so kids always have such fun spending time with him. He is a very patient teacher and knows so much about science and nature. Paul cannot wait to share his knowledge of the world and his life with a child. I know he will be a wonderful dad.
About Quynh (by Paul)
Quynh is a loving, giving, and smart woman. Loving: She will give her whole self to those she loves and to those she meets. Giving: She gives to everyone else before herself. Smart: She studies and researches until she is satisfied that she can make the correct decision. My family immediately fell in love with her. She is as close to my sisters as I am.
About Quynh as a mother (by Paul)
When I see Quynh around other children, I see someone that the children are not afraid of, who the kids quickly trust and like to interact with. I have been surprised many times when Quynh will tell a child not to do something and they will actually listen to her. Her background and family will open doors to a child that I had never seen until I met her.
Our Pets: Bear and Diggem are 2 yrs old. They are brothers from the same litter. They look nothing alike and have very different personalities. But they are so lovable and well-behaved that even the UPS/FedEx delivery men give them doggie treats, even when they do not need to come onto our property.
Our Home: Our 4-bedroom home is on 5 acres. Children can play in the game room above the garage, in the spacious backyard, or ride their bike in the neighborhood. Quynh works from home so she can keep watch when the child is inside and Paul has an outdoor workshop where he can do his woodwork and watch when he/she is outside.
Our Town: We live in a mid-sized city in Central Texas. Life is peaceful in the country but we are near enough to the big city to enjoy all the city activities. Several universities, one top national university, and 2 medical schools are located within a short drive.
