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 are the family that can ease any concerns you have so you can rest assured in your decision to allow us to 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 both received from our 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 and give. 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 adopt your baby. You would 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 late 2005 and patiently waited until the following year before we met in person and started dating. It was love at first sight, and we’ve been together ever since. Our journey has connected us spiritually and emotionally through the years. 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. We are now at a place in our careers where we are no longer required to travel and have spent the past year and a half planning to grow our family. After we turned to our faith, we shared this idea with our parents and they were over the moon with the idea of having a grandchild to love!
Chris likes to cook, watch movies, and keeps busy with always finding 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 put a lot of thought and consideration into buying a spacious, single-family home in a very safe area in Virginia, close to excellent schools. We are blessed to live in a warm and inviting neighborhood with friendly neighbors, families, and children. It’s a nurturing environment to raise a baby. The diversity of our neighbors has been an added blessing we must not forget to mention. Raising a child in an environment where they are exposed to various backgrounds and cultures is important to us as future parents. 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 ever since.
Our Extended Family
Chris is half Hispanic and half African American. Chris’ parents live approximately 30 minutes away from us in Virginia. His extended family lives throughout the country in Texas, New York, California, and Alabama, as well as Colombia, South America. Chris has an older brother who lives in California, and a half-brother who lives in Colombia. Chris’ grandmothers both live in Alabama. He came to the Washington, D.C. area after college a little more than 12 years ago, attracted to the diversity and lucrative career opportunities.
Marcos is American with Polish and Mexican roots. He is a Texas native and came to the Washington, D.C. area a little more than 12 years ago to pursue his career in the Federal Government. Marcos’ mom, who is now retired, currently lives Texas. He has an older sister who is a teacher and lives in Texas with his brother-in-law and two nephews. Marcos’ 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 our child.
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.
We met in our 20s and experienced life in many forms. We have gradually advanced in our careers, we committed ourselves in marriage, and we bought a family home. Now we are ready to expand our family as parents to a child we will love unconditionally.
