Byron & Armi

Thank you so much for considering us. We know this is such a difficult decision for you and we appreciate you taking the time to get to know us. We have always wanted to be parents and cannot think of a more beautiful way than through adoption. We hope we can show you how much love, support, and happiness we can share with your child.

Cultural Heritage

Our Big Happy Family at New Years

Armi is Filipino and Byron is half Filipino and half Indian. We were both born and raised in America to parents who immigrated to the United States. Through our childhoods, we both had exposure to our culture and traditions which is a big part of who we are now. Throughout Armi’s childhood and teenage years, she was involved with cultural dancing performances where she would perform in traditional costumes with lively authentic music. We both always enjoyed the mix of American food with our cultural food growing up.

Given our exposure, we both understand and realize the importance of hanging on to traditions, cultural exposure, and the importance of diversity as a child develops. Given we both have a Filipino background, we have always felt a strong connection with Hispanic cultures given several similarities. We both put God and family first. We love having lots of family around and sharing meals. We look forward to sharing with a child our traditions, bringing them to the international festival, and exposing them to cultures and foods all over the world.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

So Happy Together

Byron About Armi

I fell in love with Armi because she is so sweet, kind, and warm. She laughs easily and always has a positive outlook. She has such a joy challenging herself, learning new things, and growing individually and spiritually. She is selfless and always puts others in front of herself, especially when it comes to family. I met her while I was in med school and she has been by my side ever since. She is certainly my best friend. When I think of Armi, I think of selflessness and love. She has been such an incredible wife and undoubtedly would be an incredible mom.

Armi About Byron

Byron is smart, energetic and has such a good sense of humor. He always makes me laugh and is one of the most down to earth people I know. I admire his hard work and dedication in his career and how he treats every individual with the utmost kindness and respect. He is so thoughtful and does little things for me that I appreciate so much. Byron by nature has a childlike side to him and is often engaged in playing and laughing with our nieces. Byron is such a positive person and can find the good in every situation. His love and dedication to me as a husband and his love for children shows me that he would be an amazing father as he has always wanted to be.

Our Extended Families

Family Dinner

We are surrounded by family and friends who are very supportive and care for us deeply. Our family has four loving grandparents and lots of caring aunts, uncles and cousins. Our family is very close knit and we are blessed to have Armi's immediate family and extended family within a 10 minute drive of each other. Since Armi's parents love to cook, we often enjoy stopping by their house for meals or simply just to stop by and talk about our days. Both of our parents are very kind, caring and love playing with children. Our parents to this day still call often to check in and make sure we are doing well.

Christmas Eve at Church

During the holidays we have a ton of fun at our family Christmas party and enjoy family traditions including overindulging in traditional Filipino dishes, Christmas caroling, karaoke and family games. We have a gift exchange for the adults while the young children are showered with presents. Growing up, we were taught that it is better to give than to receive, so during the Christmas season, we fill a huge box with gifts that is sent to an orphanage in the Philippines. We look forward to sharing these traditions with a child, and perhaps even creating our own new traditions.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

Currently, we live in a cozy two story townhome located in a wonderful suburb in the Midwest, excellent for raising children. Our townhome can be described as simple, but cozy. It has the necessities, three bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room, family room, and basement. We enjoy spending time in the family/dining room because we enjoy eating, chatting, and laughing. We are fortunate to live in the same neighborhood as Armi's brother and have an active part in the lives of our two young, energetic nieces. Our neighborhood has a pool for which we all enjoy swimming and barbecuing in the summer.

Local Playground

Our community can be described as diverse and family friendly. We seem to be greeted with a smile almost everywhere we go. This is a community where people are quick to help and look out for each other. In our town, there are several activities to allow a child to participate in and foster their development. There are an abundance of parks, indoor and outdoor pools, and activities to keep us busy throughout all four seasons. There are also several events throughout the year with food trucks, farmers markets, and even family movie nights at our outdoor community amphitheater. We can't wait to share in the fun of our community with a child.

From Us to You

We are so grateful for your selflessness and courage to choose adoption for your child. We respect and appreciate that you have chosen this path. We know that it is not an easy decision but we will do our best to be understanding and supportive of you along the way, in whatever way is most comfortable for you. We have always dreamed of becoming parents and we believe that adoption is such an amazing gift. We know that without your act of love this would not happen, so we will always be grateful for that.

We met when Byron was in medical school. We got to know each other and found out that we had a lot of similarities, so we eventually started dating. We enjoyed taking adventures, sharing new experiences, trying new restaurants, and listening to live music. At one point during dating, Byron had clinical rotations and we had to make it work through long distance. By God’s grace and many prayers, Byron was eventually able to get into medical residency in Armi’s hometown.

We've been married for seven years now and it has been quite a journey. The challenges we have faced in trying to start a family have made us stronger as a couple. We always try to remain positive no matter what and hope to share our positivity with your child. We want to be the best parents we can be for your child and let them know they are truly loved.

We believe that this path happened for a reason and we are so excited to grow our family. We are hoping for a good relationship moving forward and we are prepared to take responsibility of raising your child with open hearts. We want you to know that we are on this journey together and we promise to bring up your child in a loving and happy home.

As parents, we are excited to see a child develop their own personality and to grow and experience the beauty of life. We look forward to him/her having a happy childhood, and growing up to be the best person they can be. We will do our best every single day to provide a safe, supportive environment, for the happiness & wellbeing of the child. We understand that parenthood requires a great sacrifice, but we cannot wait to dive into this new adventure. We look forward to watching their development including smiles, laughter, first words, and first steps. We look forward to reading books before bedtime, bringing them to the playground, eating meals together, and helping them with homework and school projects. We also look forward to them meeting our large family. Overall, we can't wait to embark on the journey of parenthood!

We will do everything we can to raise your child with good values, faith, and love for family & friends. We will support them and love them. We want you to know that we will respect any level of communication that you are comfortable with, whether it is pictures, emails, phone calls, or visits when the time is right. We wish you all the best and pray that God gives you the courage & strength in whatever decision you make. We thank you for reading our profile and would be so honored, happy, and excited if you choose us as your child's adoptive parents.

Warm regards,

Byron & Armi
