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

Is this the same sky my ancestors saw thousands and thousands of years ago? Did they have the same reverence for its beauty as I do?

Ra

We love adventures!

Kiteboarding at Ishigaki Island in Japan. Such a beautiful island!

We are the best choice because…

“Love is strength” and “Love transcends” are our mottos, and the child will experience them through our core values: “Family” “Deep connection” “Adventures”

Ayano

Casa de RAyano

We are the best choice because…

The kid will know the love of parents, including yours, and witness the love of soul mates.

Ra

If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

Eliminate racism, poverty, sexism, and discrimination.

Ra

Ayano drew this on the past Valentine's day card

My philosophy on parenting is...

Unconditionally love who the child is. Get to know the child and support their authentic-self. Each one of us is unique, and I believe that’s why we came into the world.

Ayano

The most special thing I own is...

The hard drive that has all of the photos and videos of precious moments with Ayano, family, and friends.

Ra

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

How miraculous and amazing that we exist in the vast majestic Universe; this moment.

Ayano

Love bicycling!

View Larger

I would never...

Not take off shoes at home!

Ayano

My favorite place in the World is...

Anywhere Ayano is (except the bathroom)

Ra

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

Happy to see that the child is growing up healthy, joyous, and flourishing, and feel good that she made the right choice.

Ayano

What is the best word to describe your family?

Responsible, settled, caring, and full of laughter.

Ra

I would never...

Touch a black man’s radio! (quote from Rush Hour)

Ra

What is the best word to describe your family?

Caring, funny, and unique individuals.

Ayano

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

While I'm mostly spiritual, I am also a little RAligious.

Ra

My philosophy on parenting is...

Honor who the kid is and help them understand the best path to live responsibly while they pursue their passions.

Ra

The most special thing I own is...

The purple rubber band (a kind that comes with broccoli) that Ra gave me as a temporary engagement ring when he spontaneously proposed to me at the Dragon Temple in Japan.

Ayano

If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

Filled with magic, like the Harry Potter world. (But only good magic!)

Ayano

What scares you?

The thought that Spring won't return or that the Sun would never rise again.

Ra

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

Spiritual. I’ve always felt a close connection to nature, the deep-within, and the Universe - the mystery, the wonders, and the infinite depth of this world that we live in.

Ayano

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

⛵Sailboat so I can be Capt Rrrrr (I've already started trying out Dad Jokes)

Ra

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

It’s pretty laid-back atmosphere here. There are beaches, a big area of a nature preserve, and many parks where the child can explore nature, be free, and sandy!

Ayano

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

Takoyaki (octopus balls) - I know, it sounds gross, but actually delicious!! (No, it’s balls of grilled octopus, not octopus’ balls)

Ayano

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

Barbecue Eel with rice!

Ra

In five years, our relationship with you will...

Be organically grown to be genuine and honest where we all feel safe and open to be who we are.

Ayano

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

Water - ocean, lake, bay, river - anything. I just need to live near the water.

Ayano

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

Currently, we do not have any kids. We plan on spoiling the hell out of this one (but not too much).

Ra

If you had to pick a famous person to play you in a movie, who would it be?

Chiwetel Ejiofor (Victor Sweet from Four Brothers)

Ra

I hope you are...

Encouraged to know that the life you created will be nurtured by a couple who believes in family teamwork and staying true to their core values.

Ra

My favorite place in the World is...

Ra’s lap. He has this healing energy that relaxes you. I love putting my head on his lap, feeling his warmth, and just chill there. I feel safe, loved, and happy.

Ayano

Favorite season and why?

I love Spring. My name, 彩野, writes as “colorful field” in Japanese, and I love the season when everything starts to blossom, filling the world with so many variations of colors.

Ayano

What scares you?

Being suppressed and not be able to be myself.

Ayano

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

Air - to fill my lungs, to propel my kite, to cool me off as I cut grass, to flow by as I cruise on a motorcycle.

Ra

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

Chilled, adventurous, open-minded, and animated.

Ayano

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

Crazy and laid-back (Yeah, somehow it's possible to be both)

Ra

Favorite season and why?

I'd have to say Spring. Tolerable temps, beautiful scenes, good winds for kiteboarding, and it's after all the snow and before all the hurricanes.
