Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for reading our profile. We can only imagine the thoughts you have considering finding a loving family to adopt your baby. Our hope is that after reading through our profile, you will see we will love and care for your baby. Family is at the core of our relationship, and we are blessed to experience this through the support and love we have received from our own parents.
We have loved each other and been in each other's lives for the past twelve years, and as much love as we have for each other, we know we have plenty more to share. That love is what has driven our decision to adopt a baby to keep safe, raise, and love for the rest of our lives.
We don’t take this decision lightly, and we know you don’t either. We look forward to connecting with you and completing this journey together so you will entrust us to raise your baby. You can make us the happiest guys on earth by blessing us with the gift of becoming fathers. We hope that as you continue reading, you will see we have shared love, laughter, and memories throughout our lives together, and we would be honored to create new memories with your child.
We met online back in 2005, and since then we have been blessed to travel the world together, as well as separately, with both of our jobs working in public service for the federal government. Chris likes to cook, watch movies, and keeps busy fun and innovative landscaping projects. Marcos, on the other hand, enjoys the responsibility of keeping our home clean and warm and is always ready to plan events, host gatherings, and keep us connected with our many friends and family. We are over the moon with the idea of expanding our family and filling our home with abundant love for our future son or daughter!
We put a lot of thought and consideration into buying a spacious, single-family home in a very safe area in Virginia. We are blessed to live in a warm and inviting neighborhood with friendly neighbors, families, and children and numerous trails and parks all walking distance from our home. Raising a child in an environment where they are exposed to various backgrounds and cultures is important to us as future parents, and we can do that thanks to our diverse neighborhood. We also must not forget our four-legged son, Toby, who we adopted in 2006 from a rescue shelter. We have enjoyed every minute he’s been in our lives!
Our Extended Family
Chris’s parents live approximately 30 minutes away from us, in Virginia, and his extended family lives throughout the country in Texas, New York, California, and Alabama, as well as Colombia, South America. He has an older brother who lives in California, and a half-brother who lives in Colombia. Chris’s grandmothers both live in Alabama.
Marcos is a Texas native. His mom, who is now retired, still lives in Texas, as does his older sister, who is a teacher, and her husband and their two sons. Marcos’s father, who recently passed away, was a native of Mexico City. Before he passed, he told Marcos, “I know one day you and Chris will be blessed with a beautiful child.” This is something we will always cherish.
What Led Us To Adoption
Family is at the core of our relationship. We recognize how blessed we are to have been raised by such supportive and loving parents. In that light, we both want to instill the values of love and faith into a child of our own. Giving a child the opportunity to experience a life they will hopefully pass onto their children one day is what makes this journey and possibility of adopting a child so meaningful to us. Adopting a child will not only complete our home, it will make our hearts whole, and we are ready to take on the role of fatherhood.
