A Letter from Johnhan & Jeanne

Dear Birthmother,

Hi! We are a fun-loving, easy-going family hoping to add one more little one to our brood. We have a zest for life and love to play, imagine, create, and be adventurous. We hope through our stories you’ll get to know us better, just as we hope one day we may get a chance to get to know you better.

Our Story

We met online nearly 9 years ago after chatting every day for several weeks. When we finally met, our first date was over 7 hours long. After that, we were inseparable and married 3 years later. In the nearly 9 years that we’ve been together, we have gone on many adventures- from swimming in a bioluminescent lake in Jamaica to exploring Machu Picchu. Our biggest adventure though has been raising our toddler Jordan and our dog Squeegee. Being parents have taught us that life’s greatest joys are in the simplest things- jumping in rain puddles, dancing in our pajamas, and spending quality time together. 

 We are so excited to share our love of play and adventure with another little one.

Meet Johnhan

Johnhan is honest, loyal, and always sees the best in people and situations. He shows love by doing and is truly the most present father that I know. During the day, Johnhan is a senior engineer at a biomedical device company, making life-saving technologies. When he gets home though, his silly side comes out and he can play with Jordan for hours. He is the fun dad that the neighborhood kids and our nieces and nephews love to hang out with.

Johnhan was on the swim and water polo team in high school. He loves snowboarding, football, and basketball. He looks forward to sharing this love of sports and encouraging our children to lead active and healthy lives.

Meet Jeanne

Jeanne is so caring and nurturing to me, our son, and our dog. She also is our family’s fun director and is always thinking up new places to explore and fun things to do. She is also a really great cook and loves to entertain our friends and family. For work, she is a student services manager at a top University, helping her students make the most of their time in school. Her work is flexible and allows her to work from home one day a week. Jeanne looks forward to spending special one-on-one time with each of our children. 

Jeanne is very creative and loves to decorate our home with art, including her own original paintings. Jeanne also loves gardening and growing fruits and vegetables. She has encouraged our son to enjoy art and gardening and is excited to show another little one the joy of creating and growing.

Our Son Jordan

Our son Jordan is such a happy, silly little boy. His current interests center around trains and construction vehicles. He loves to be outside – playing in his sandbox or riding his balance bike. Jordan loves reading before naps and bedtime, laughing and swimming.

We love taking Jordan on bike rides, to the zoo and toddler-friendly amusement parks.  We also take regular family vacations- Jordan has already visited Hawaii twice, Yosemite National Park, San Diego, Seattle, and many weekend trips to the beach. We look forward to including another little one into the family fun and making memories together!

Our Home in California

We live in a 3 bedroom home that is filled with light coming from over 4 skylights. We have a spacious fenced-in front patio with a sandbox, filled with trucks and shovels. In the backyard, we have a covered patio, a water play area, and a lush grassy lawn where there is plenty of room for everyone to play and have fun together. We live in a wonderful neighborhood with warm and friendly neighbors. Several evenings a week, the neighborhood kids congregate in one of our front yards and ride bikes together, play hide and seek, and more. We have two large parks in our neighborhood, one of them just down the street. We live in a great school district with a diverse student and family population.

Our Promise

We promise to give unconditional love and compassion. We promise to help our children to find what drives them and encourage them to pursue those passions. We promise to instill in our children a curiosity to learn. We promise to allow our children to be themselves and to love themselves. 

We promise that your child will know how special and loved they are and how important you are for making the dream of expanding our family a reality. We are excited to meet you and are open to sharing photos, videos, letters, and possible visits.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests

Johnhan is very handy and loves to use his power tools. He's great at wood working and building. Johnhan built our kitchen pantry, a sandbox for Jordan, and also renovated one of our bathrooms! He also loves football and basketball. His favorite teams are the Golden State Warriors and the Green Bay Packers.

Jeanne is very artistic and enjoys painting and decorating our home with art! Jeanne also loves gardening and spends much of her free time in our front and back yard with our son Jordan, showing him how to take care of our strawberry and tomato plants. Jordan loves to dig and also loves to eat fresh fruit and vegetables, so it's a perfect fit!

Our Traditions

As Asian-Americans, we celebrate both American and Chinese holidays. We love Thanksgiving and Christmas as well as Chinese New Year and the Moon Festival. Our traditions often blend together- with a traditional Thanksgiving turkey, we may also have sticky rice with Chinese sausage. For Christmas, we love decorating the tree and setting out a little Christmas village, but Jordan will often get lucky red envelopes in addition to presents. We are both bilingual in English and Chinese although English is our primary language. We, along with both sets of grandparents, are teaching our son Chinese as well.

Our dog, Squeegee

Our dog Squeegee is a rambunctious ball of fur! She is energetic, loving, and loyal to her pack. She has watched over Jordan since day one. Squeegee's favorite things to do including chasing squirrels in our backyard, tearing up her toys, and sneaking food from Jordan.

Our Extended Family

We are so blessed that our families live so close to us. Both sets of grandparents live within 30 minutes from us, as do many of our siblings and cousins.

Johnhan comes from a large family with two older sisters and one younger brother. His family is devoutly Catholic and his parents take Jordan to Mass every week. Jordan loves spending this quality time with them. Johnhan’s sister has 2 little boys and when the three boys get together, it is a zoo! Johnhan's oldest sister is also expecting a baby girl - the first girl in our family! The whole family is also so excited to see what our adoption journey brings and can't wait for another little baby to join our adventures.

Jeanne is an only child who is incredibly close with her parents. Jeanne’s mom used to be a teacher and her dad is a retired engineer. They love bringing Jordan to the library, encouraging his love of reading and learning. Jeanne’s tight-knit, small family is so excited to double the fun with one more grandchild.
