Dear Expectant Mother,
We just want to say thank you. Thank you for considering us. Thank you for your selflessness. Thank you for loving your child so much that you are looking at all of your options.
We want to tell you a little story so you can understand the depth of our gratitude. Last Christmas, we went down to Cuba because Luis’s grandfather was very sick. It was Jeremy’s first time in Cuba and Luis’s first time back in the country he was born and raised in.
Our family there does not have a lot; they don’t have a car, they don’t have a fancy house, and they don’t have much money, yet they were so rich. They have neighbors who look out for them, family members who take care of each other, and food and dancing that celebrate the richness of their love. This trip was a reminder of all of the most important things in life.
Walking into a Cuban home, you kiss and hug every person in the room, and that is what we will give your baby—so much love. It is what our families gave to us as children, it's what has made us who we are today, and it is the source of all the goodness we will pour into caring for your baby. Thank you again for considering us. We hope to meet you, learn about you, and find a way to make all of our dreams come true.
Jeremy is an energetic, hard-working Arizona man who runs his family's business. Luis is a sassy, smart, and independent man, born and raised in Cuba, who had the opportunity to move to Florida 12 years ago with some of his family. We met four years ago while Jeremy was on a business trip in Florida. After a year of flying back and forth for visits, Luis moved to Arizona, and Jeremy became the happiest man alive. Jeremy has worked at his family’s business for 20 years and has become the sales manager, working alongside his parents, brother, and sister. Luis worked as a server for years, learning perfect English, and is now almost done studying to be a nurse. We love cooking big dinners together for our families and friends and hiking with our pup throughout Arizona.
We live in a historic neighborhood in the heart of a city. We have a fenced back yard for playing, and we are close to the children’s museum, science center, art museum, and zoo. We love to walk our dog, Sophia, who helps us to meet other dogs, kids, and families in our neighborhood! Our home reflects the places that we have traveled to and other cultures we embrace. We try to escape the summer heat by heading into the mountains up north and enjoying all four seasons in our family’s vacation house. The area has beautiful pine trees and snow in the winter and has perfect hiking and biking weather that makes awesome weekend getaways and long summer trips.
Our Extended Family
Luis has a huge family spread from New York to Florida and down to Cuba. When we were in Cuba for Christmas this year, his aunts couldn’t wait to come to America to help us and be a part of our child's life. Luis’s mom can’t wait for her new grandchild so she can teach him or her Spanish and spoil him or her with love! Jeremy has a lot of family still in the Midwest that he visits yearly, so a farm and small town living will be in your baby's future!
Jeremy’s immediate family is mostly in Arizona, where Luis and Jeremy are uncles to five nieces and nephews who are thrilled about the idea of a new cousin. We get together often, playing cards, swimming at Grandma’s house, and eating Mexican food or burgers for birthdays and holidays, which feels like just about every weekend. We also have a big chosen family, with close friends who are starting families of their own. We are lucky to have so many people who love and support us and who are looking forward to play dates in the park!
What Led Us To Adoption
We decided to adopt to start a family because we know our lives have been incredibly blessed. Both of us want to share all the love, acceptance, and happiness that we have experienced as a couple. The idea that we can use our blessings to help a thoughtful, loving mother by raising her child to be a strong, smart, and loving person is the best way we know to pay those blessings back. Our hope is that our child can continue the positive cycle that was started by his or her mother.
