Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. We are Ish and Trish. We are a madly in love couple waiting to fall madly in love with a child. We have a warm and loving home in Simi Valley, California. Our beautiful backyard is perfect for BBQs and playtime and is only lacking the playful giggles of a child. We are hoping to find a brave and selfless expectant mother to help us fulfill our hearts greatest desire of becoming parents.
We’ve been happily married for five years. We met at work back in 2004 and dated for about 7 years before we started living together in 2011. We married in 2013. We love to travel and make it a point to take an annual vacation.
We enjoy going out to restaurants to eat, but Trish loves to cook as well. We like spending time with friends and family. We love to entertain, whether we’re hosting backyard BBQs or Christmas Eve dinner. We enjoy watching NBA basketball games and NFL football games. We are big Dallas Cowboys fans!
Ish is a very calm and patient person. He’s an amazing leader and teacher of subjects and experiences he has knowledge in. He is currently teaching one of our teenage nieces how to drive. Trish is a great cook who also enjoys food art and menu planning. We both love superhero comic books and movies. We love to share new experiences with our nieces, nephews and God children – including; museums, parks, water parks, carnivals, movies, aquariums and sporting events – just to name a few!
We have a beautiful, newly remodeled 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in Southern California. Our home is near multiple parks and playgrounds. The schools in our area are award winning schools. We live in a diverse neighborhood full of many cultures and age groups. We have plenty of yard space to run and play. We have a designated room as our future nursery that we just can’t wait to paint and decorate.
Our Extended Family
We spend lots of time with family for birthday celebrations and holidays. We like to decorate for Halloween and Christmas. For Halloween we host a costume party for friends and family. During Christmas time, Trish and her sister spend an entire day baking a variety of Christmas cookies that we share with coworkers and friends. We also get together as a family for each members birthday to celebrate with a special birthday dinner.
During the spring and summer months, we get together regularly to BBQ, have pot lucks and play outside games. Bean bag toss and water balloon games are a favorite go to. We also enjoy packing a picnic and spending family time at the beach.
Our Family Traditions
Each family member, no matter how young or old, gets a phone call on their birthday from all members of the family singing the Happy Birthday song. One of our fun holiday traditions is “Christmas Eve Gift”! Each family member calls another family member first thing Christmas Eve and says “Christmas Eve Gift” until the whole family has been gotten. Then on Christmas Eve when we all get together for dinner, we exchange a small gift to the person who got us. It’s so fun to hear someone say “you got me!” or “I’ve already been got, you have to call someone else”. And it’s always a treat to see how creative the small gifts are.
What Led Us To Adoption
After years of painful and expensive fertility treatments, we chose adoption as our path to our ultimate goal of becoming parents. We realized we have so much love to give to a baby or babies and raising a child or children in our happy happy home is our dream! Achieving our dream through adoption may not only bring us joy, but we’re hoping the brave birthmother who choses us, feels some comfort knowing her baby will be raised in a loving safe home.
