Words can’t fully express how grateful we are that you are considering adoption. We can’t possibly imagine what you’re feeling and experiencing, but we are honored that you are taking the time to consider us as you make your decision.
If you choose us, we can promise that your child will be raised with love and support from a large and diverse family. Our hearts, home, and community are ready to provide a life full of love, devotion, education, and wonder to your child.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We truly are amazed and humbled by your bravery and selflessness. Both of us are committed to raising a child with the knowledge that they are and always will be loved unconditionally. We are incredibly excited to embark on this journey with you, and look forward to hearing from you soon!
Our time together has always been full of love and adventure! We enjoy traveling the world to visit friends & family, exploring far-off cities, seeing natural wonders outdoors, and trying new foods. Ben works as an engineer for a major tech company, and he has a natural talent for solving problems and fixing things. He is a foodie and an incredible chef, and also sings with local choirs from time to time and sings at home constantly. Marco teaches children with learning disabilities and second language learners at a local elementary school. He loves all forms of visual art, including sketching, painting, comic books, movies, and theatre.
We live in a quiet residential neighborhood with plenty of grass, trees, and parks nearby to play in and plenty of other families with children of all ages to play with. We bought our home with children in mind, so we have plenty of space to play, learn, relax, and recharge. We are minutes away from the children’s museum, the zoo, and even an amusement park!
Our Extended Family
We have a warm, supportive community of family and friends ready to love and support our child. Most of our friends are local and have children of their own, who are awaiting a new playmate. Ben has family across the country, including two adopted sisters nearby, and much of his extended family in Minnesota. Marco grew up in California as part of a large Mexican family, surrounded by aunts, uncles, and cousins. He has family across the United States and Mexico, but his parents and a majority of his extended family live nearby. We are in constant contact with our family and friends, whether it’s video-chatting with our nieces and nephews, texting with our sisters and cousins, online gaming with our friends, or phone calls with our parents. We try to visit and celebrate with family as often as possible, especially for birthdays and holidays, and we love hosting gatherings in our home for any occasion.
What Led Us To Adoption
We both knew we wanted to raise a family together from the beginning of our relationship. We have so much love and so many blessings in our life that we want to share with a new generation. As we’ve watched our friends and family all start to raise families of their own, and have spent more and more time with our nieces and nephews, that desire has only grown stronger. Having been raised in families that were formed from and celebrated adoption, we knew it was the route we wanted to take.
