Ana and Larry

Hello and Welcome!

We are Ana & Larry from Southern California. We sincerely want to thank you for taking the moment to get to know us. We are honored and so incredibly grateful that you might consider us as adoptive parents for your child. We want you to always know that we respect and really admire your consideration for an adoption plan for your child.

We cannot imagine what you are going through, or your emotions and thoughts, but please know that we would like to be there for you and support you in any way we can. Our paths crossed for a reason, and through your deep and courageous love, we have the opportunity to build the family we have always dreamt of. Our hearts, our home, our family are all so excited and hopeful for this child. Our door will always be open to you, as you will also be an essential part of our child’s adoption story.

Our Story: Our love for each other evolved from friendship. We shared very similar tastes in music, movies, arts and culture. Throughout all our adventures, there was always a chemistry and special bond between the two of us. We really feel that we married our best friend and soulmate. An interesting tidbit is that our childhood homes are 5 blocks away from each other, and we met 20 years later living in different cities!

Even before getting married, we discussed the idea of adopting and how we wanted it to be a part of our lives one day.

One of our biggest passions is traveling. We have made travel an integral part of our lives and visit a different country twice per year. We both came from humble homes where we were not able to travel, so this is very important to us to show our future child the world. We love to learn about different cultures and try to live like the locals and immerse ourselves in the culture. We can’t wait to be able to travel with our future child.

In Our Free Time: We love to cook food, learn new recipes and listen to music. Our home will be filled with yummy meals that are either passed down from our family or learned from our trips abroad. There will also be a lot of dancing around – since we love to play music while cooking.

Hello and Welcome!

About Larry

About Larry Written by Ana: There are so many wonderful qualities about Larry. He is the most genuine, loving, sincere person I know. I know this stems from his sweet and loving family. From the moment I met Larry, I knew deep in my heart I wanted to marry him! He is the youngest of 9 children and was raised by two wonderful and loving parents. He has great relationships with all of his nieces and nephews. I know by his interactions with them, that he will be a great dad! Larry is also incredibly smart. I can just imagine our child asking him any random question in their little head, and he would most likely know the answer to it. You want Larry on your team in any trivia game.

Larry works in entertainment and is an avid record collector. He is also a music encyclopedia, there will be a lot of dancing around in our home. One thing that is very inspiring about Larry is that he is deeply moved by injustices in the world and works hard by using his platform to raise awareness for causes.

He is also very passionate about traveling. He loves to go to the local food market and learn traditional meals. Then we bring that back home with us and have fun cooking nights with things we learned abroad. I really can’t wait to see him as a dad. My heart is full just thinking about it!

Larry’s Career: Larry is fortunate to be able to have a successful career in music and art, something he has always been so passionate about. He is able to do what he loves as a living. His career allows him to work the majority of the time from home. Larry uses his education in marketing, design, and UX to create music events throughout Los Angeles. He promotes concerts and events and has a 20 year running night club which he runs, either bringing in DJs or DJing himself.

About Larry

Home Sweet Home

We love our town and we did a great amount of research when deciding where to live. We love diversity, a sense of community and independent shops, and we found that here! We live in a community that sits 15 miles from downtown Los Angeles, nestled in the foothills. We have a multicultural community, with parks, hiking trails, libraries, museums, cafes, restaurants, and a great selection of public and private schools.

Our air quality has been measured the best in Southern California, and as our weather is gorgeous year round, we look forward to spending countless hours outdoors with our future child, visiting botanical gardens, playing at the park and just relaxing in our large yard spending time with family.

We live in a spacious home, which is bright, warm and welcoming. We enjoy hosting social gatherings with family and friends, many of whom come from all around the world. Our future child already has extended family across the globe who can’t wait to meet your special child.

Meet Little Willie: We brought Little Willie into our lives soon after buying our first home together. We adopted him from a rescue organization. Our sweet puppy is 4 years old and we can’t imagine life without him. He absolutely loves kids! Our nephews love coming over to play with him.

Introducing Our Loved Ones

Both of our families are very close and we love to get together and make special memories during the holidays and birthdays. The grandmas are already so excited and making little things for our future child. Between the two of us, we have 10 siblings and more nephews and nieces than we can count, so the memories and immense love will be overflowing. We also want to let you know that our family tree includes adoption in the past, present and future.

Our nephew was adopted and like us, is currently in the process of adopting a child. He has a vast understanding about how a child might feel and what they might go through, and his knowledge and invaluable insight has been shared with us and will continue. It is an exciting time as both his family and ours are in the adoption process, and we can’t wait to have our future children get to know one another and learn from each other.

Traditions That We Love:

  • Every year we make sure to visit Barcelona to celebrate their National Day called Diada.
  • We host an annual Christmas party every year that is a lot of fun with family, friends and neighbors.
  • Every year we get together with our dear friends from England.

We Will Teach…

  • Unconditional Love: Our child will know that they are loved and supported unconditionally. This will also build their self-esteem to love themselves and be the best person they can be. We will encourage their individuality and guide them in finding their way in life in the most supporting and loving way.
  • Safety & Security: We will provide an environment where our child will always feel safe and secure. The home we build together, will always be theirs.
  • Kindness: Kindness is a priceless virtue. It is the most fundamental expression of what it means to be a good person.
  • Believe in Themselves: As parents, we will strive with all our hearts to encourage our child and help them fulfill all their hopes, dreams and desires. We will come from a place of pure positivity, support, encouragement and understanding. Nothing will be too big or too small for our child.

We have so much love for our future child, even before we have met. We can’t wait to share our love and lives together.

In Closing: Thank you so much for reading our profile and getting to know us. We hope this profile gave you a glimpse into the life that we hope to create for your child. We come from a place of pure love and if we are lucky enough to be chosen by you, please know that your child will always be loved unconditionally, be supported and encouraged fully in their interests and passions, and be nurtured by two people who will spend the rest of their lives loving your child. We fully respect your loving decision and want you to feel at peace and fully supported. Your child will always know about their adoption story and with this the culture, traditions and values from which they came. Once again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering us as parents for your child.
