Hello! We’re James and Japa. We’re humbled by your courage in considering an adoption plan, and are so thankful you’re taking the time to learn about us.
Ever since getting married in 2009, we have wanted to grow our family. When we learned that we would not be able to do that on our own, we knew that adoption would be part of our story. In 2016, we were so fortunate to welcome Angelica, our precious daughter by adoption, into our family. Her arrival only confirmed what we already knew: that we want our family to grow just a little more, and for Angelica to have a brother or sister.
We’re a simple, laid back couple that shares a passion for food, travel, reading, and games. And we come from two small, loving families who are a sustaining presence in our lives.
We’re honored to have your consideration, and wish you strength in your journey.
