dear expectant mother

We appreciate you taking the time to read our story and getting to know us as prospective parents for your baby. We know adoption is an incredibly brave and loving decision, and we commend and respect you for it. We have faith that our journeys have brought us together since we know you want the best for your child, and we believe we have so much to offer.

We want you to know we will always love, support, and protect your child. We will be the parents you envision, and your child will always be our priority. We have the emotional and financial means to take great care of your child.

We have loved each other from the beginning and have stuck together through difficult times. We’ve laughed and cried. We’ve loved and lost, and through it all, we are stronger. Another baby is a dream come true for us. We hope you enjoy our story and can envision your child as part of our loving family. It would be a blessing to be chosen as your child’s adoptive parents! Thank you so much for reading our story and getting to know us better!

All our love,
Vanessa & Armando

About Us

We appreciate you taking the time to read our story. We met in 2006, and it was love at first sight! We’ve now been married for 12 years. Through our family business, we provide therapy to special needs children. Vanessa is a pediatric therapist, and Armando is a business specialist. Working together providing services to special needs children is our passion, and we feel very blessed to have this opportunity. We enjoy pool and beach days with our son, Brayden, and the rest of our family and love our lazy Sundays with our fur-babies. We enjoy going to Disney World and the zoo and plan to travel more in the near future. Our son is eight years old. Brayden is a loving little boy. He is bright and loves learning. He is caring and loves his family. Adding a baby to our loving family would be a dream come true!

Our Home & Pets

We own a lovely, four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home in a quiet, family-oriented, gated community. We have an enclosed swimming pool for safety. Our community has many amenities for family fun, including three pools, playgrounds, a gym, volleyball, tennis, racquetball, walking trails, lakes for kayaking, and a soccer field. We have four small dogs and two parakeets! They are part of the family, and we love them dearly. Our animals are small, amazing with children, well behaved, and housebroken. Oreo and Peanut are rescue dogs. Cosmo is a mini-Schnauzer, and our puppy Astro is a cockapoo. Our birds, Bluey and Bingo, sing sweet songs, play together, and have been a wonderful addition to the family.

Our Extended Family

Armando is the oldest of two children. He has a younger sister, and they had a wonderful childhood. He has many childhood memories centered on sports with his dad as well as his sister’s dance recitals. They traveled a lot with their family and sports teams. He has been friends with the same core group of friends since they were five years old, who all come from strong family backgrounds. Armando is now the godfather to his sister's son.

Vanessa is the oldest of five children. She has one sister and three brothers, one of whom unfortunately passed five years ago. She is still very close with all her siblings. Her parents are nurturing, loving, and supportive. She remains close to her extended family. Vanessa has many fond memories of family get-togethers, beach trips, and vacations. Being the oldest, her siblings and cousins always gravitated toward her. Vanessa has always loved spending time with children! Vanessa is now the godmother to two of her nephews.

What Led Us To Adoption

The desire to adopt began early. We had planned to have both biological and adopted children. Our son, Brayden, was born in 2014. When Brayden was 18 months old, we started talking about having a second child. Unfortunately, soon after, we had a medical issue that left Vanessa unable to become pregnant. We focused on Brayden and building our business, but the desire to have more children never left us. Having another child would be a dream come true for us. Adoption is a wonderful gift we will treasure forever! We will love your child as we do Brayden, providing unconditional love, support, and encouragement. We have a close extended family, most of whom live locally, and they all are very excited to welcome a new baby.
