State we live in: California

dear expectant mother

Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and for considering us as prospective parents for your baby. We understand this may be a very difficult time for you and greatly respect the decision you are making on behalf of your child. We want to share a little bit about our family and how we plan to build a great life for our baby.

When we met over 11 years ago, we knew we had found our other half. Our relationship is built on unconditional love, open communication, trust, spirituality, and a lot of fun. Over the years, we have built a life we adore. We know the final missing puzzle piece in our lives is the baby we will raise.

If you choose us, we promise we will raise your baby to feel completely loved, truly accepted, and fully supported. We will ensure your child has a great education and that they get to explore all of their interests. They will also learn to have good values: to help those less fortunate, to respect people, and to protect nature. And they will have a childhood full of joy and fun, from doing puzzles and watching Disney movies to going hiking and swimming in the ocean on weekends, hanging out with their cousins, and learning about the world while visiting family in Mexico and Europe.

Thank you again. We look forward to connecting with you and partnering with you on this journey.

If you choose us, we promise we will raise your baby to feel completely loved, truly accepted, and fully supported, they will have a childhood full of joy and fun.

About Us

On a typical Saturday, you will find us gardening in the backyard, taking our dog Mali for a long walk, spending the afternoon at the park or beach with our extended family, or playing board games. Those activities highlight what’s most important to us: family, nature, and being connected to our community. When we first started dating in 2009, it was that common set of values and interests that drew us together. In the years since, Ana has completed her Ph.D. in economics and now runs her own small business, and Justina got a Masters in Business Administration and works as a manager in a large healthcare organization. We have also built a loving home that incorporates our diverse mix of cultures as Ana is originally from Mexico and Justina grew up in Wisconsin with parents who emigrated from Hungary.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a three-bedroom, two-bath home in a residential neighborhood. Our house is truly a home and is full of photos and books with a backyard full of plants. We often spend weekends in the yard gardening or hanging out with family. We love our neighborhood, which has lots of trees and is very diverse with lots of different kinds of families. We have one small dog, Mali, and we go on many adventures with her. She is very chill and gets along really well with our one- and four-year old nieces.

Our Extended Family

A big part of the connection we have as a couple is based on being raised in close-knit families with lots of love. Creating that same type of relationship in our own home has always been very important to us.

We are close to both sides of our extended family. We are very fortunate that Ana’s brother and his family live very close, so we get to spend lots of time with our two nieces. Many weekends are spent having barbecues or backyard hangouts. We also travel frequently to see both sets of our parents and Justina’s brother and his wife. Every week we also do Zoom calls with our families and even do virtual game nights once a month.

What Led Us To Adoption

For many years we have talked about having a child. From the start, we knew adoption would be the right way for us to build our family. This is because it has been our experience that it’s the loyalty, love, and care you put in that really creates a family bond. We have seen this with Justina’s stepfather, whom we both are very close to. We are now at a place where we are financially secure and both of our careers are very stable, so we hope to grow our family and provide a loving and nurturing home for a child to flourish in.
