dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We will never understand how you are feeling right now; you must be going through so many emotions. We know how difficult the decision you are making for your baby is. We admire your courage, and we will be forever thankful for the possibility of parenting your baby. We want you to know we have dreamed of having a baby, but we didn't know if we could ever make our dream a reality. Now we are able to see a light of hope that our dream can come true, and it all begins with you.

We can already see the baby running all over the house. We see ourselves picking up a lot of toys as well as going on our first trip to Disneyland and having our first Halloween and Christmas together.

If you choose us for this gift, your child will have happiness and protection. We will do everything in our power to make their life exceptional. We will be there for falls and successes to support and give guidance, and we will be there to give unconditional love. Our goal is to enjoy life to the fullest and to live our dreams. We would be honored to parent your baby, and we cannot wait for him or her to meet the grandparents, uncles, and cousins; they can’t wait either.

With love,
Mario & Fernando

If you choose us for this gift, your child will have happiness and protection. We will do everything in our power to make their life exceptional.

About Us

We are from Central America. We fell in love because we create balance together within our lives. We complement each other, and together we have achieved many of our goals. What we love the most is traveling, having fun with the family, and trying new foods. We come from families that taught us to be hard workers, to always have respect for others, and to uphold our values. Our most important value is Family. We believe that with unity, care, and love, we have everything we need to succeed and be happy. Mario’s passion is to help others, and that is why he pursued a career in the health field. Now he is managing a clinic where they help people get relief from pain. Fernando loves working with the public. His hunger to thrive and succeed are his biggest skills. Now he coaches others to be successful.

Our Home & Pets

We have been living in our house for 2 years, and we are loving it! Both coming from city environments, our new home is in a quieter and less crowded area. Our surroundings are great. We have everything we need close by. We also live close to an elementary school. Our two-year-old puppy, Leia, is a spoiled, beautiful princess that loves everyone. We couldn’t imagine life without her. We are still trying to help her get to know more doggy friends.

Our Extended Family

Family is everything to us, and our extended families are just amazing.

On Mario’s side, we have his parents, brother, sister-in-law, and niece; they live closest to us. We spend a lot of time together and always make every second count. We love meeting at each other’s homes, trying new foods, discovering new places, and celebrating birthdays and most holidays together. We have started a tradition where we meet on the first weekend of the year in our home to celebrate life, wellness, and prosperity.

Fernando’s side of the family is a bit bigger; he grew up with his uncle and aunt (whom he calls Mom and Dad), cousins, brother, and sister. There is also a brother-in-law, two nieces, and three nephews. We love spending time with them, especially for birthdays, holidays and important events like soccer games, graduations, etc. Because his family lives far away, we do our best to go and spend as much time as we can with them. The same happens with the remainder of his family on the East Coast: his father, stepmother, and two sisters. We do our best to go there whenever we can throughout the year and always have a great time together.

What Led Us To Adoption

Having a baby has always been a dream of ours. This year, we started looking into what options were available for us. We realized adoption is the greatest blessing for us to become parents. With the support of our families and the strong foundation we have built, we are ready. We are excited for the opportunity to become parents because we want to give our all to a baby. We want to brighten up their lives, and we want to spend our time with them and see them grow, be there for them through the good and bad times, teach them right from wrong, and make them happy. We want our family to keep growing, and we want to live life to the fullest.
