Dear Expectant Mother,

A mother’s love is the very definition of unconditional and unselfish love.

Challenges are what make life interesting, and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.

It would be an amazing blessing for us to be the adoptive parents of your child. We will dedicate our time and energy to raising your baby to be full of passion and courage. We will put forth every effort, and we will love him or her unconditionally.
If you choose us, we will never be able to say thank you enough. Thank you so much for reviewing our profile and considering us to be adoptive parents for your child.
We are a very dedicated couple. We met over nine years ago and have been married for almost four of them. Steven is a nurse, and Armando works in design. Armando has a playful and outgoing personality, while Steven is a positive and nurturing person who opens his arms and heart to everyone.
In our free time, we love to travel. We enjoy exploring the nature California has to offer, from the ocean to the beautiful mountain scenery. We also take an annual trip to Disneyland, which we've done since we first started dating! Any extra time we have is spent with our family and friends, playing board games and hosting BBQs. We have developed a special bond as a married couple, and we continue to grow stronger. We truly feel we complement each other, and we turn to one another for strength when times are challenging.
We live in a single-story house in a small city. The quiet neighborhood where we live is active with families and young children. Our neighbors are very outgoing, and we have developed many friendships since moving here. We enjoy spending time with everyone, talking or playing games.
Armando has decorated our home and created a feeling of warmth and welcome. We have a very lively household and several pets! We have two very well-behaved, quiet, and loving cats, Sushi and Saki, and one young Black Lab named Maverick. Our friends, family, and pets have turned our loving home into a hub of activities, fun, and love.
Our Extended Family
Armando and his two siblings were raised in a full house by his parents, aunt, uncle, and compassionate grandmothers. He spent lots of time with his brother and sister growing up, and they continue to show love and support for him and each other. Steven is one of three boys in his family. His brothers were his best friends as a child and they all continue to be very close. Steven and his brothers always had to be active and outside!
Between our two families, we have many different traditions. Armando’s family takes annual trips together and hosts holiday dinners with his extended and immediate family. Steven’s family has yearly family reunions and also shares holiday dinners at his parents’ or grandparents’ house. We both feel blessed to have the parents we do. Our parents were great inventors and leaders, and they motivated and inspired us to do great things. They worked hard to shape us into who we are today. We cannot wait to follow their examples with an adopted child of our own.
What Led Us To Adoption
When we started dating, we both knew children held a special place in our hearts. As we took the blessing to marry one another, we also continued to carry with us the love we have for children. We knew we would have to explore our options, being a non-traditional couple who want to grow our family. After several deep and compassionate conversations between us, we felt led to adoption. The thought of being parents fills our hearts with joy, and we cannot wait to wake up and see the eyes of a little one. Our family's love, combined with strength from each other and prayer, lets us know for certain we are ready to start this next chapter.
