Dear Expectant Mother,
We already feel eternally grateful to you for considering us as your child’s adoptive parents. The decision to help another family in the way you are considering can’t be easy, but it’s a true testament to the giving person you must be. We can’t begin to imagine the flood of emotions you must be feeling at this time, but we promise to do all that we can to support you through this process. After all, you may be the reason our dream will come true of adding another child to our family.
We know you have many options when reading through the possible adoptive families, and we appreciate you taking the time to read through our profile and learn a bit about us. Making our family complete and having a new baby join us is a dream of ours. We want you to know that if you give us the honor of adopting your child, he or she will grow up in a tight-knit family, and will always feel loved, nurtured, supported, and encouraged.
We hope to learn so much more about you and answer any questions you have for us. We can’t wait to start our adoption journey!
We met in the summer of 2010 and knew instantly we did not want to leave each other’s side. Learning about each other’s fears, loves, losses, and successes, we each knew we found the person to spend the rest of our lives with. We were married in the spring of 2014, surrounded by our closest friends and family.
Our adopted son Ander was born in August 2016, and he has been a true blessing. He is curious and energetic, always wanting to play and explore. He’s also very loving and funny – every day with him is truly an adventure. Seeing how he interacts with other children shows us what an amazing big brother he would be.
Paul has been in sales for over ten years and owns a successful Real Estate company with his best friend Emily. Jamie is a Senior Account Manager at a large tech firm.
We bought our home in August 2016. Our five-bedroom, three-bath home is nestled in a neighborhood filled with diverse and growing families. Our home is surrounded by exemplary schools, protected green space, trails, parks, and so much more—everything Washington has to offer. We purchased our home with the intent of growing our family, so there is plenty of room for everyone. It has a large backyard to play in and has a dedicated playroom to have fun and be silly!
Our Extended Family
Our families both love to celebrate every holiday full-throttle. So for us, holidays are HUGE. Decorating, family dinners, holiday outfits - you name it, we love it. We want our children to grow up with that same magical and curious feeling we had when the Tooth Fairy left a quarter under our pillow, the Easter bunny left us a chocolate egg, or Santa ate a few cookies we left out for him.
Another tradition we both share is the importance of traveling and experiencing the world. We take two trips annually to get away and remember to enjoy life—what used to be just the two of us is now happily three! Jamie was able to live in Europe for a year in high school and grew tremendously from that trip. We want our children to be able to experience the world and all it has to offer.
What Led Us To Adoption
Paul comes from a large Hispanic family with many cousins, nieces, and nephews. He has always wanted a child. Since we’re not able to have a child through traditional means, adoption was the perfect choice for us. We see it as an opportunity to grow our family, not only with a child but also starting a relationship with our child's birthmother through whatever type of adoption is best for her. We had a very positive experience adopting our son Ander and still keep in touch with his birthmother. If you choose us, we would be open to the amount and type of communication you’re most comfortable with. We, along with our family and friends, are excited at the opportunity of welcoming another child into our family.
