Elizabeth and Keven
WE LIVE IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, WITH OUR LOVING DOG, MOCHA.
Our path to growing our family is through adoption, and we couldn’t be more excited! We will be unconditionally loving, and supportive parents and are seeking an open adoption.
We first met back while attending the same high school but barely knew each other. Fast forward to an alumni event in 2018, where we reconnected, and from our first date only two days later we knew it was meant to be. We live an active life and love traveling, often on local car trips and spending time with our family and friends. Elizabeth is a freelance marketing consultant, which allows her plenty of flexibility which we know will come in handy once we complete our family.
Elizabeth enjoys exercising and is an avid wine collector. She loves learning about the wine, the region, and the winemaker’s story. Keven works in sales in the Electric Vehicle industry and enjoys photography and woodworking, a hobby he has loved since high school.
Meet Elizabeth written by Keven
One of many things about Elizabeth is that she is a huge supporter of whatever I decide to do. She helped me get a new job with Tesla, which has advanced my career and helped me get to where I am today. Beyond helping with my career, Elizabeth is smart, caring, sweet, and bright. I also love that she is honest and calls me out when it is needed. We discuss everything in detail and make joint decisions that are best for both of us.
Meet Keven written by Elizabeth
Keven is sweet and outgoing, always makes me laugh, and encourages me to try new things. He plans everything from a quick weekend away to our new tradition of cookie decorating during the holidays. I know that Keven will be an amazing dad as I have seen firsthand how he plays and cares for our niece and nephew. He is the first to get down on the floor and even change diapers. I joke that Mocha is why I agreed to marry Keven because Mocha adored him from day one.
Our Neighborhood & Home
We live near the beach and also some amazing playgrounds (we see kids playing soccer there on the
weekends). We love taking car trips and going to visit our niece and nephew and cousins on the east coast. We live only minutes away from Elizabeth’s parents who are great babysitters and already help with our niece and nephew and also Mocha. The neighborhood we live in is walkable to everything from restaurants, coffee shops and the local public school.
Our Family & Friends
We have a very close group of friends and family who couldn’t be more excited about our decision to adopt, especially Keven’s best friend who is adopted himself. When we shared with him that we were planning to adopt we got to hear his story and he has supported us in every step of the way. We know that he will be there for our child too. Our family spreads across both the east and west coast but as the years go by we also have friends who are as close as family
Our Hopes & Dreams As Parents
We want to instill a strong sense of extended family, community, and friendship while allowing him or her to develop into their own person. We hope to have an open relationship with the birth family, and we strongly believe that understanding one’s heritage is important. We hope you know how much we will love our child, and we also welcome you to be a part of our lives.
