Dear Expectant Mother,
We thank you for your courage, strength, and resilience. We thank you for your courage in considering the path of adoption. We thank you for reading our profile and taking the time to consider us as parents for your child.
As a couple, one of the things that draw us to each other is family. We have lots of nieces and nephews. At a very early age, we both realized we wanted to be Dads (Padres). Jorge’s mother was adopted as a newborn. Adoption has always been something that could help him fulfill his dream of becoming a father.
David went to an adoption seminar before meeting Jorge, and that gave David assurance and certainty that fatherhood was possible for him.
We want to assure you that we will unconditionally love, support, and guide your child. Your baby will be in good hands with us. We want to learn more about you, and we hope you read more to find out about us.
We have worked hard to achieve our goals and establish our careers. David leads a team of trainers as a training director in the mortgage industry. He has worked hard earning his master’s degree, and he is now a leader in his organization, developing, coaching, and elevating his team.
Jorge has been working in marketing for over ten years. Like David, he is hardworking. He put himself through college and got his MBA. He is driven to pursue a career in marketing strategy.
As a couple, we enjoy trying new things. Jorge grew to appreciate travel, and he has traveled to over 20 countries. David is compassionate and caring. We support and push each other towards our goals. Whether it be training for a run, a volleyball tournament, or a new SPIN playlist, we have learned that as a unit we are stronger.
We have a three-bedroom house in Texas surrounded by huge oak trees. Although at the time we bought the house we weren’t married, we knew that the right house for us would be one where we could raise a family and have kids running around in our backyard. Our neighborhood is quiet. It’s the kind of neighborhood where you can go for a walk after work and see other families riding bikes, walking their dogs, or headed to the neighborhood playground. We have great relationships with our friendly neighbors. We always let each other know when we’re going out of town, and we help with yard work or putting up Christmas lights. We love going to the nearby lake and feeling the breeze and sun on our skin when we walk or jog.
Our Extended Family
We are a very diverse household. David grew up in Texas. His mom is a wonderful role model. One of David’s fondest memories growing up was his mom going against the norm and being the first female little league coach in their small town. From his upbringing, David has learned to work hard and put his family first. He enjoys every holiday surrounded by his mom, step-dad, siblings, nieces and nephews, and now Jorge.
Jorge was born in a small town in Mexico. He lived with his parents and extended family until he was five. His parents then moved to the United States in search of better opportunities for the family. This experience gave Jorge the opportunity to grow up with both the American culture and Mexican culture, speaking both English and Spanish. For Jorge, his family traditions involve celebrating both Mexican and American holidays.
The best times with family for Jorge and David come from sitting around the dinner table, enjoying a meal, looking at each other, laughing, and talking about each other’s day and their future goals. We have been lucky to be surrounded by our families throughout our lives, and we are ready to grow and create new traditions in our family.
What Led Us To Adoption
When we met, one of the first conversations we had was about family. We expressed how important family was to each other, and how special it would be to eventually start a family of our own. That connection helped us understand each other better, and, as our relationship progressed, we started working towards growing our family of two. Both of our families are supportive of us going through the adoption process. When we told Jorge’s parents about adoption, Jorge’s mom looked back with teary eyes and thanked us for giving someone like her an opportunity of a family full of love. David’s mom was equally happy, saying that a child raised in our home would have hope and a strong future.
