dear expectant mother

We are overjoyed you are considering us as fathers for your baby and cannot wait to meet you and find out more about your wishes and needs during this process. The opportunity to adopt and have a family of our own is the honor of a lifetime. We know it is important to you to know your baby will be given every opportunity with their future family. It is paramount to us that you know we promise to love, cherish, protect, and do everything in our power to ensure your child has a life filled with happiness and opportunity. While we realize your decision is not easy, we are filled with unending gratitude for the opportunity you are considering giving us.

With the close-knit extended family we have in the area, our lives have been filled with love and the joys of watching nieces and nephews grow, learn, and laugh. But when we think about our own home in the future, it is also filled with the laughter of a child we are blessed with parenting. Holidays will take on a new meaning as we share our family traditions and create new ones together. We both look forward to everything from mundane family dinners to traveling together, trick-or-treating, birthdays, nature hikes, and so many other new experiences. Most importantly, we look forward to giving your child a loving home and nurturing them to achieve their greatest potential.

Once again, we are eager to get to know you and learn what your hopes are through this journey. Thank you for considering us, and know we are committed to being the best role models for your child. We will forever be grateful for your gift of parenthood.

Thank you!

About Us

We approach life as a journey of discovery and feel there is always room to learn from every situation. We share a love of travel, culture, the arts, gardening, and education and a passion for life. We met eleven years ago on New Year’s Eve and, over the years, grew together as we learned the many ways we balance one another while developing a strong relationship with loving communication as a key aspect. Alfred earned a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Pharmacy. Today Alfred is an executive for a medical device company. Jose earned a Master of Nonprofit Agricultural Development and a Master of International Relations. He is the owner of a successful boutique houseplant shop. We cannot wait to raise a child in the midst of our close-knit family while inspiring in them the same love for adventure we share.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a bright, happy home in a cul-de-sac with friendly neighbors and plenty of kids. Our neighborhood is walking distance to an elementary school and a large park with a playground. Our home has a large game room that’s perfect for family time. We also have a fairly large terraced garden, complete with a goldfish pond, that we enjoy tending during the warmer months. During the holidays, we love decorating our home and really go all out. Our home is made even happier because of our two wonderful pups, who absolutely love children. We also have two cats who are calm and loving. We cannot wait to share our warm and happy home with a child!

Our Extended Family

Our family is very close knit and means everything to us. All of Jose’s immediate family—his mother and two siblings—live nearby. Jose is also in contact with his extended family in Mexico and visits them often. Alfred’s parents and his sister live nearby, and he has four siblings living in Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, and California.

We have many family holiday traditions we cherish and cannot wait to share them with our child. The Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are all very important to our family, and we love celebrating them. Christmas is especially important as that’s the holiday when both sides of our family come together at our house to celebrate. Birthdays are also a fun time, and we always make sure everyone feels special on their day.

We are lucky to have parents, siblings, and numerous nieces and nephews in the area. Our extended family will be a vital support system for us, and they are all extremely excited that we’ve decided to adopt and cannot wait to meet the new addition.

What Led Us To Adoption

Children have always been a major part of our lives as we have twelve nieces and nephews whom we love very much. Because of this close family bond, we knew we both wanted to be fathers ourselves. So after many years of being closely involved in the lives of our siblings’ children, we’ve determined it’s time to build a family of our very own. We’ve luckily developed many parental skills by having a hands-on role in helping to take care of those nieces and nephews that live locally. Many of our friends also have adopted children and are developing happy, healthy families. We have so much love to give, and we can’t wait to share our home with a special child.
