What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

I wonder what I'm looking at and then ask Emily M (she has her PhD in Astrophysics) to tell me if I'm right. I've finally figured out how to identify planets vs stars vs satellites. It's so cool!

Do you have kids? How would they feel about a sibling?

We don't currently have any other kids, but our dream is to have two kids.

What is the best word to describe your family?

Goofy - we are constantly laughing and making jokes.

Emily P.

We are the best choice because…

We aren't perfect, but we have so much love to give. We are open minded and caring and we can't wait to support our child in creating whatever life they want.

Dogs or cats?

Definitely dogs. When Emily P and I met we joined our two dog families and I love waking up to our two dogs jumping on our bed.

Emily M.

Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

in our lives and most importantly in our child's life. We want our birth mom to be a part of our family if that's what they want as well.

Emily P.

Favorite season and why?

Fall is hands down my favorite season. I am originally from New England and love going back during the fall to see the leaves changing. I also love Halloween, decorating the house, and scary movies!

Emily P.

Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

still in our lives. We would love for our birth mom to remain in our families life and we hope that relationship is full of love.

Emily M.

I hope you are...

surrounded by people who love and care about you. I want you to feel supported and loved and to know how grateful we are to you.

Emily P.

Do you have kids? How would they feel about a sibling?

We don't have kids right now, but we'd love to have two children.

Emily P.

My best friend would describe me as......

quirky, empathetic, adventurous and easy to talk to. I'm the person that people come to when they are having a hard time, but I've also been told that I'm very light hearted as well.

Emily P.

If you could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

ice cream. I eat it almost every night and can't get enough of it. Mint chocolate chip to be exact!

Emily P.

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

of the amazing community here and yet it's still so close to the uniqueness of San Francisco. I love our tree-lined streets and when we moved in over 200 people welcomed us on our community board.

Emily P.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

Galaxies! I am an astrophysicist and fun fact discovered 33 galaxies while finishing my PhD! I can't wait to tell our child all about the stars and galaxies.

Emily M.

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

we live on a beautiful tree-lined street with a nearby park, and a loving community. Our neighborhood is only about 20 minutes from San Francisco, but has the beauty of that small town feel.

Emily M.

If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

RV for sure. There are so many incredible National Parks that we want to see (and let's be real, I would get sea sick on a boat).

Emily M.

The most special thing I own is...

a letter from my Grandma. When she was alive we would email or write back and forth. I always set a reminder to email her on Wednesdays and I've kept that reminder on my calendar even after she died.

Emily P.

What scares you?

Losing people in my life who I love. I value relationships and my community so much so it scares me for those people to no longer be there.
