Joe & Carlos

Dear Expectant Mother,

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for taking the time to read through our profile. While we will never be able to understand what you are currently experiencing, we hope that, together, this can be a positive journey. We commend your strength and bravery in making this selfless decision, and we hope and pray you will find some comfort in knowing that we will welcome a child into our home with open arms, and we will always have unconditional love for them.

After over 12 years together, we have grown as individuals and as a couple and know we are in the best possible place to begin down this path of becoming parents. We are devoted to giving all that we have to raising a child in a warm, loving, and supportive home, where they will be cherished and provided with the opportunity to be their best self. We will provide an environment for them to achieve all they can while knowing that it’s okay to make mistakes, that no one is perfect, and that the journey is just as important as the destination.

We thank you again for your thoughtful consideration of our family. We would be overjoyed to be selected for this blessing, to share our love as parents with your child. It would be a privilege to welcome you and your child into our family.


About Us

contact

We met at a very young age and have been together for nearly twelve years. We truly grew into the men we are together. From the very beginning, we knew that we wanted to share the rest of our lives together and share our love with a family of our own. After being together for six years, we finally wed in New York City in 2011. Our personalities complement each other perfectly, with Joseph being the cautious optimist and Carlos filling our lives with excitement. Joseph is a cyber security engineer for a defense contractor, and Carlos is a freelance esthetician. When not working, we love spending time together, going on hikes or long walks at the beach.


Our Home

contact

We live in a wonderfully decorated home in sunny Southern California, in a family-friendly neighborhood we share with our two small dogs. Our house is filled with love and laughter, with many friends nearby and frequent visits from family, including our seven nieces and nephews. We are near many parks that we love strolling through and are only a short drive from many beaches and family-oriented attractions that we can’t wait to share and experience with your child.


Our Extended Family

contact

We were both raised in households where the principles of family, faith, and unity were strongly valued. Joseph’s family is small, as he only has a single brother; however, holidays were always shared with his extended family in town. Church and God were always a big part of the family, with Joseph reading the scripture at 7am mass, which he attended with his parents and grandparents weekly.

Carlos grew up with two older siblings and lots of extended family nearby. He has fond memories of spending time in the woods and camping with the family. Sundays were always special, where everyone would get together, eat food, and reflect on their week together.

The holidays are always a special time for both of our families. We have made a tradition of spending Easter with our God-daughters, painting eggs, having Easter egg hunts, and enjoying the day with a barbecue prepared by Carlos at the beach. On Christmas, Joseph loves assisting with cooking the family meal, including the always-present Red Velvet Christmas cake. We get so much joy out of spending time with family, watching everyone open gifts, and enjoying the season.


What Led Us To Adoption

contact

We have always known that we wanted to be parents. We have been blessed to have an amazing family and see our nieces and nephews grow and develop as individuals with unique personalities, and we want to build a similar experience for a child of our own. We have built a wonderful life together and have so much joy in our hearts. We believe our lives can be made even brighter through sharing our love with a new member of the family, and that a child will help make our family whole, as it is meant to be.
