Background on Brandon [ adoptive parents [ couple looking to adopt [ parent profiles
Brandon was adopted as a baby at 3 days old. His birth-mother was in her 30's and already had other children but was in a situation that prompted her to place him into the arms of his adoptive parents. They raised him in Las Vegas, and reared him to be an outstanding student who was self driven and motivated to do just about anything from playing baseball and wrestling to selling candy, participating in the boy scout program and graduating in the top rankings of his class. He was lucky enough to get a little brother who was adopted, when he was 8 years old. His little brother and him are great friends now and the 8 years between them means nothing!
He received his Eagle Scout when he was 14, and later at 18, served a mission for our church in the Philippines for 2 years. He learned the language and loved the culture and all the Philippines had to offer. He now speak Tagalog b/c of his service there.
He had lots of fun growing up and attending baseball games and concerts and being the loud, fun outspoken guy that he is. He married me about 8 months after we met at UNLV, in the San Diego Temple in La Jolla, CA on July 5th 2002. He has always excelled in business and has earned a wonderful living for our family and had great experiences doing so, these past 8 years.
I am so lucky that he lets me be a stay at home mom b/c of his determination and drive to do his very best in his career. He has been in lending and investments the last 5 years and he will continue in that same field but will be expanding into the real estate side in these next few months.
Brandon is a big time movie fan who loves to quote crazy moves like Talladega Nights (That just Happened!) and other wild movies. He's a fabulous bowler and usually beats everyone else when he plays. He loves reading good books and fantasy books like Lord of the Rings and he loves motivational books and such that pertain to his fields of interests. He likes to bike and workout and toss the football around with the neighbor kids as well.
He has never met his birth-mom yet, but has met his birth sister and will probably meet her someday when he's ready.
I feel as his wife that He was so blessed to be adopted and be given a life of love and comfort and His mother and father raised him to be a fabulous human being, father, husband and friend.
I couldn't ask for anything more!!!
