Thank you for taking the time to get to know who we are. We don't believe in coincidence. We believe everything happens for a reason. We can think of no greater honor than to be able to raise an adopted child in a loving home. We understand how difficult this decision must be. If we are chosen, we would like you to take comfort in knowing that we would provide your child a home filled with opportunity, joy, hope, and love.
There are many activities we are excited to share with your child. We love road trips, both in the United States and Mexico. One trip we especially look forward to is Disneyland. This will be the first trip to Disneyland for both Ignacio and an adopted child. We can picture the excitement on a child’s face as he or she sees Mickey Mouse for the first time or watches the light show at night.
Music is a part of our lives. Kimberly plays the piano and, if you choose us, would teach your child how to play. As a family, we would attend plays and musicals. When the sun goes down in the evening and your child gets tired, we look forward to reading a book together and tucking them in with hugs and kisses.
We hope that through our profile you have been able to get to know us and that this will ease your difficult decision.
We have both always believed in the importance of education, and with that, both of us have bachelor's degrees (Kimberly has two as well as a minor in Spanish). We are both bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish, and we feel that it is important to teach a child both languages.
Currently, Ignacio works as a marketer, and Kimberly works as a registered nurse. We hope to be able to instill our love for learning in an adopted child. After many years on our own, we found love, in what we felt was a very unexpected place, the internet. From our first date, we were inseparable and knew we had found the one we wanted to share our life with. The decision to marry was easy. After a short engagement, we tied the knot. The only thing that would make our lives happier and more fulfilled would be to share our love with a child.
We live in a residential area with a little twist. We have a home situated on nearly two acres of land, which some younger family members call a park! Next door we have a horse ranch. We have lots of space to run and play and an area we are preparing to raise chickens. In the summer, we garden and in the winter we tube and snowshoe. Fall at our home lends itself to sitting around the campfire making s'mores and telling stories. We are so excited to share the Fourth of July parade and Christmas Village with your child. These are just two of the community activities we enjoy every year as a family.
Our Extended Family
We both have amazing extended families. Kimberly's is in the United States and Ignacio's is in Mexico. Kimberly comes from a family of seven siblings with 24 nieces and nephews, while Ignacio has three siblings with seven nieces and nephews. There is never a dull moment at our house!
Christmas Eve at Grandma's house is a family favorite. It is filled with lots of good food, games, and, of course, presents. At times, it seems the presents nearly block the tree from view! Birthday parties for the old and young are well attended by all family members who live nearby. You have not heard the happy birthday song until you have heard Kimberly's family sing their rendition with many “ho's” and “hey's.” Easter in Mexico is spent at the beach playing in the water, building sand castles, and enjoying each others’ company. We cannot wait to share these, as well as many other, traditions with your child.
When we announced our decision to adopt, our families could not have been happier and more supportive. Our families know what a blessing adoption will be in our lives and theirs.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption is part of our everyday lives. Kimberly's side of the family has been involved in both sides of the adoption process. An older sister was adopted at birth and seven cousins were adopted from the within the United States as well as El Salvador. Kimberly also has a niece, who at the age of 17 was the birthmother to a beautiful little girl. This little girl today is nine years old and living a very happy life with her adoptive parents. We have tried several avenues to have a family. Being exposed to many positive adoptions gives us hope that we too can find joy and fulfillment through this process.
