Dear Expectant Mother,
We thank you for your courage, strength, and openness to consider adoption. As a couple, adoption is the path we have decided to take to start a family, and we hope after reading our profile you will consider us as the couple that can take good care of your baby.
Family has helped our relationship grow stronger throughout the years; 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. We will teach him or her English and Spanish, math and history, all while teaching them to be kind and how to laugh.
We want to learn more about you, and we hope you read more to find out about us.
We met in 2014 during a volleyball game, and we have been together ever since. Four years later, we are active in volleyball, fitness, world travel, and celebrating the holidays with our families. After marrying in 2017, we are ready and excited to welcome a baby into our family. We were both raised believing in working hard to achieve our dreams, which is how we achieved our Master’s degrees. 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 believe it is important to enjoy life wherever we are, which is why our careers have been so fulfilling. When not at work, you can find us at the lake or hosting a game night with our friends.
Our home was built in the 1950’s, in a neighborhood with huge oak trees that cover the streets, which is rare in Texas. We fell in love with the house the moment we stepped through the front door. With original oak floors and open space, we knew this would be the house in which we could raise a family. We believe the home should reflect our personalities, so we built an outdoor deck, where we grill with our friends on the weekends and flowerbeds 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.
Our Extended Family
Our families come from different backgrounds, which has helped us appreciate diversity even more. David was raised in a small town where everyone knew each other. His favorite memory is his mom, the first female Little League coach, leading the team to first place that season. She taught David to live life by his own standards, not based on others. 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, until 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.
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 to our home!
What Led Us To Adoption
The connection we have with family is what led us to adoption. We are both uncles, and that special connection we have with our nieces and nephews is what assured us that one day we would want to become parents ourselves. Our connection with family helped us understand each other better, and last year we became a family by getting married. Right now we are a family of two, and want to grow our family by adopting a child.
