Dear Expectant Mother,
We thank you for your courage, strength, and openness to considering adoption. As a couple, adoption is the path we have decided to take to start our family, and we hope after reading our profile, you will consider us as the couple that you can trust will take good care of your baby.
Family has helped our relationship grow stronger throughout the years, and we value our relationships with our parents, nieces, nephews, brothers, and sisters. It’s this support system we want to continue nurturing as we bring a little one into our home.
Adoption is near and dear to us as Jorge’s mom was adopted at birth. We want you to know this child will know the story of how he or she helped us become a family of our own. This child will also surely know of your selfless actions and love. We will teach him or her English and Spanish, math and history, all while teaching him or her how to be kind and how to laugh.
We cannot wait to speak with you and look forward to sharing more with you about ourselves.
We met in 2014 during a volleyball game, and have been together ever since. On our first date, we spent hours talking about family and interests and found so much in common. We share a goofy sense of humor that keeps us laughing, and our foundation of similar values has allowed us to grow closer each passing year. After marrying in 2017, we are ready and excited to welcome a baby into our family. While David is enjoying a career in corporate training with a mortgage company, Jorge continues to explore his passion in marketing and teaching spin classes. We are active in volleyball, fitness, and world travel. When not at work, you can find us at the lake or hosting a game night with our friends. We cannot wait to begin new adventures, such as our child’s dance recital practice in the living room or showing them how to catch a baseball in the backyard.
Our home was built in the 1950s in a neighborhood with huge trees that cover the streets. We fell in love with the house the moment we stepped through the front door. We believe the home should reflect our personalities, so we built an outdoor deck, where we grill with friends on the weekends, and planted flower beds that are always in bloom. Our guilty pleasure is to take one of the many biking trails from the neighborhood to the lake or local parks on a Saturday afternoon. We are excited to install a swing on one of our oak tree’s many branches in the front yard for our child to swing in and are looking forward to autumn days spent jumping into the leaf piles.
Our Extended Family
Our families come from different backgrounds, which has helped us appreciate diversity even more. David was raised in a small town, and his favorite memory is of his mom, the first female Little League coach, leading the team to first place. David’s parents are now retired, and they enjoy spoiling the grandchildren from David’s four siblings.
Jorge was born in a small town in Mexico, and his parents moved to California to raise their family when he was five. Jorge has grown up with a blend of the American and Mexican cultures, and his family traditions are a mix of cultures that make the holidays even more special.
Our child will bring additional excitement in our traditional bunny ears at our Easter egg hunt with our nieces and nephews. We also go to the Texas hill country for Thanksgiving to go fishing and hiking and to participate in our annual kickball tournament, where we will teach your child how to kick a home run. We make tamales every Christmas with Jorge’s family while playing holiday music. We love that our family is diverse. We are ready to grow and create new traditions in our family, and everyone is so excited to welcome a new child!
What Led Us To Adoption
The connection we have with family is what led us to adoption. We are both uncles, and that special bond we have with our nieces and nephews is what assured us that one day we would become parents ourselves. Our relationships with our extended families has helped us to understand each other better and to keep and maintain a deep connection. We are so excited and cannot wait to grow our family by adopting a child.
