dear expectant mother

We are so grateful you are considering us as prospective parents. We know this is not an easy decision for you, but we want you to know we are prepared to provide the most loving home a child could ever hope for. We appreciate you for making this courageous decision that allows couples like us to fulfill our lifelong dream of parenthood. We cannot wait to go through this journey alongside you and want you to know you have our unconditional support.

We are very excited about the opportunity to grow our family with the love and support of our friends and extended family. We recently built a new house with the anticipation of making it a home for our growing family. Every decision we make is with the best interest of a child at the forefront of our minds. Our hard work has allowed us to financially provide every opportunity for a child, from extra-curricular activities to a rock-solid education. Our work ethic is something we are very proud of and something we believe is an important value to instill in our children.

We just want to thank you again for allowing us this opportunity; it is an honor to be considered in this decision. We look forward to meeting you very soon and starting this exciting journey together.

With love & kindness,
Steven and Franco

About Us

We met through mutual friends in 2013 and have been together since. We dated for five years before getting married surrounded by a very large group of our supportive friends and family. Steven is a native Texan and has lived here his whole life. Franco was born in Uruguay and moved to Texas with his family in 2000. We would love for our children to be bilingual and plan to teach them both English and Spanish from a young age. We own our own business, which allows flexibility in our schedules and time to enjoy the things and people we love. We enjoy taking our boat to the lake, camping in our RV, and being outdoors. We love to scuba dive as often as possible. We also love to travel and can’t wait to show our growing family the world. We enjoy cooking dinner together every night and trying new dishes.

Our Home & Pets

We recently built a new custom home in Texas on two acres in a neighborhood with lots of great neighbors and even some of our family. We chose this neighborhood because of the great schools and the large lots. We have over 4,500 square feet with three bedrooms and four bathrooms. Our large backyard has a pool and plenty of space for our five dogs to be chased around by their new playmate. We have a theater room that is perfect for family movie nights and a large outdoor patio where we enjoy entertaining our friends and family. The neighborhood has a large park and an 86-acre lake.

Our Extended Family

We both come from families of four children, so we have lots of nieces and nephews with whom we are very involved. We love to support them by attending their activities and celebrating their accomplishments. Both sets of our parents are happily married and enjoy spoiling their grandchildren with their time and attention. Franco’s parents live down the street from us and are so happy to be close as we grow our family.

We often go on camping trips in our RV with our combined families to different places in Texas. We celebrate every holiday, birthday, anniversary, or “just because” occasion together with lots of homemade food and laughter. One of our favorite holidays is Halloween. We have a pre-trick-or-treating party for the neighborhood kids and our families, which everyone looks forward to every year.

What Led Us To Adoption

After being married for two years and enjoying our time as a couple, we decided it was time to grow our family. Both of us come from large, loving families and have always wanted children of our own. We know we are ready to finally make that a reality. For years we have fostered dogs through a boxer rescue. It was very meaningful to us, but one thing we learned is how hard it is to say goodbye. Because of this, we know adoption is the right fit for us rather than foster care. We cannot wait to bring a child into our loving home and give them the opportunity for a full life filled with fun, adventure, and, most importantly, unconditional love.
