Rob and Eri

Hello!

We are Rob and Eri, a fun-loving, creative couple from Los Angeles. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We admire your courage and strength as you make your important decisions.

Our life together

We have been married for over three years and like to hike, attend summer concerts, and spend time with friends and family. We also love to travel, especially internationally. The best thing about our relationship is that it doesn’t matter where we are or what we’re doing, as long as we are together. Now that we have established our careers, we are ready to start our family by providing a warm, safe, and loving home for a child. We always knew we wanted children and adoption was our immediate preference. Rob has three cousins that have been welcomed through adoption and are unconditionally loved by everyone.

Rob’s thoughts on Eri

Eri is a licensed clinical social worker who also teaches at a university. She is 5 feet 4 inches tall, with black hair and brown eyes. She's intelligent, fun, and extraordinarily thoughtful. She also has a great sense of humor. I am also blessed by her talents in the kitchen – she is a wonderful cook who takes pride in preparing a wide variety of delicious, healthy meals.

Eri is the very definition of a “challenging, but fair” teacher: she takes great pride in educating her students and ensuring that they have the tools they need to be successful. You should see the sheer delight in her eyes when she talks about how a student grasped a challenging concept and put it into practice. She is not one to give up on the ones who struggle; instead she devotes countless extra hours to working with them and giving them every opportunity to succeed. The proof of her success comes at the end of every semester where she receives numerous letters from her students personally thanking her for the time and effort she put in to making sure that they succeeded.

Eri truly enjoys exercising. She loves pushing herself to new “personal bests” and trying out new ways of staying fit. She also really enjoys spending time with her family and friends – rarely have I seen a mother and daughter as close as they.

Eri’s thoughts on Rob

Rob is 5 foot 10 inches tall with brown hair and blue eyes, and is an aerospace attorney. He is a sincerely kind, generous, and loyal husband, son, brother, and friend. It’s not surprising to me that people are naturally drawn to him: He is truly patient, likeable, has a gift for making people comfortable and is quite the comedian, constantly making others laugh! Rob is a happy person that has a positive outlook on life. He likes to try and learn something new whether it’s a new activity, a new subject, a new dish, or a new route.

He is particularly close with his dad. The first thing I thought when I met his father was that Rob is his father’s son: both are caring, honorable, and dignified men. Together, they enjoy playing golf and going to the USC football games. Like his dad, uncle, and grandfather, Rob has a talent for home improvement projects. Rob also likes to listen to music, read, watch movies, and loves his San Francisco Giants! He recently has begun to take interest in photography.

Rob is a hard worker, has formed strong relationships at work and is well respected by his employers and co-workers. He is very good at breaking down difficult questions towards a solution, getting people to calm down, listen, and discuss reasonably, teaching challenging material, and last but not least, motivating people to succeed. He takes providing for his family very seriously and is ready to provide for our new little one as well. He is also a team player in our marriage and helps out around the house.

Our thoughts on parenting

Our comfortable home is located in a family-oriented neighborhood, a short walk from excellent schools, a huge park, farmers markets and lots of kid-friendly activities. Family is very important to both of us and we spend a lot of time with them. We will provide a life where a child feels secure in the love and support of their family. We will raise our child to be kind, honest, respect themselves and others, and to achieve all that is possible. Our child will be encouraged to pursue their dreams.

In closing

We have so much love to share with a child and are excited to have the opportunity to start our family through adoption. If we are given this privilege to adopt your baby, always know we will unconditionally love and cherish your child and will forever know the sacrifices you have made out of love. Thank you once again for taking the time to read our story. We wish you all the best in everything you do, especially in the coming months when you will be faced with some tough decisions.

With best wishes,

Rob & Eri
