About Us

We met in 2014 and have been inseparable since then. After taking a few trips worldwide, we decided to get married in a small, intimate ceremony aboard a cruise ship with our close family and friends who support and love us each day. We share the same amount of love and respect for one another; we complement each other perfectly as our personalities differ yet balance each other. During our time together, we have made our house a home and moved from Nevada to Florida, where we can enjoy more of our favorite activities, such as going to theme parks, enjoying a day at the beach, and going on cruises. Ernesto recently finished his bachelor’s degree and changed careers from being a chef to working in the finance industry. Charles works for a large healthcare company focusing on governance and auditing, and we are both fortunate to work from home.

Our Home & Pets

We recently moved to Florida to be closer to the beaches and theme parks; our home is nestled inside a guard-gated golf course community. We are situated near the clubhouse, and all of its amenities, including a children's splash path and playground. Our home is a two-story house with four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and a large yard providing plenty of room to grow. Our subcommunity is filled with neighbors that know each other and have lived here for years, and we take turns hosting barbecues and block parties. Our street is filled with children who all know each other and play with one another. We currently share our home with our two dogs, our five-year-old Maltese and our five-month Goldendoodle.

Our Extended Family

Ernesto grew up as an only child but has an extensive extended family, having over fifty cousins. Charles has a younger sister as well as many cousins. One of Ernesto’s family traditions is to get together every two years with all the extended family. There is always plenty of food and fun activities for the children. Though most of our family members are in Texas, New Mexico, and Minnesota, our move to Florida has allowed us to be closer to some of Charles’s cousins, one of whom is an elementary school teacher and has three children of her own. Both of our moms as well as Ernesto’s aunt also moved to Florida and are a large part of our support system.

What Led Us To Adoption

From the start of our relationship, we knew we wanted to have a family to share our love and make lifelong memories with. While discussing and researching different options to achieve our dream, we decided adoption was the best fit for us, and we would love to welcome your child into our family. Charles’s cousin was adopted at birth and had a loving relationship with her biological mother and her adopted family, and we would love to provide the same experience. We look forward to becoming parents and filling a child's life with memories of love, kindness, and excitement, all while sharing our love of travel and adventure with them.
