Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for reading our profile. We can only imagine the thoughts and emotions you have when considering finding a loving family to adopt your baby. Our hope is that after reading through our profile, you will see all the love and support we have to share with 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 fourteen 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.
It was 2005 and Marcos had just moved to Washington, DC, to pursue his career in the federal government. Chris had just graduated and was looking to expand his circle of friends. We met online that year, and since then, we have been blessed to travel the world together. Marcos was drawn to Chris for his ambition, life goals, love for family, love of cooking, and spontaneity. Chris was drawn to Marcos’s love for family, his faith, and his genuine compassion for those around him. Chris likes to keeps busy with fun and innovative landscaping projects. Marcos 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 have a spacious home in a very safe area in Virginia. We are blessed to live in an inviting neighborhood with friendly families, children, and numerous trails and parks within walking distance. 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 cannot wait to introduce your child to all the children in the neighborhood and to participate in the many family-friendly activities sponsored by our community. Living in the Washington, DC, metro area provides us with endless possibilities to expose your child to the many museums, cultural events, and learning activities. We also must not forget our four-legged son, Oliver, whom we adopted in 2019.
Our Extended Family
Chris’s parents live approximately 30 minutes away from us. He has an older brother who lives in California, and a half-brother who lives in Colombia. Chris’s grandmothers both live in Alabama. We are so excited for our child to have playdates with Grandma and Grandpa, to take road trips to visit family, and to spend time at our annual winter vacation in the Shenandoah Mountains.
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. “Momo” as Marcos’s mom will be called, has her bags packed and is ready to come stay with us to spoil her future grandchild.
Our moms and dad are over the moon with the possibility of having a grandchild. The idea of spending quality time with our families to celebrate birthdays and holidays gives us such joy knowing our child will always be surrounded by love, family, friends, and pets!
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 but it will make our hearts whole, and we are ready to take on the role of fatherhood.
