We make it a priority to have date nights. We just saw John Legend at the Hollywood Bowl and it was an amazing evening!
FIRST AND FOREMOST, thank you for considering and adoption plan for your baby and for clicking on us. Your interest in us gives hope that one day we will fulfill our dream to give our daughter a brother, or a sister, for a lifetime of siblings' love and laughter, and we cannot even start to express our gratitude to you for this opportunity. As adoptive parents, we promise to raise your baby in an environment surrounded by compassion, joy, and a sense of respect for all humankind.
Our family is complete with: love, hugs, diversity, weekend naps, laughing until we cry, movie nights, quality-time, trips to the beach, and dancing...lots of dancing!
Love is what brought your baby to us and love is what we will nurture your child with.
OUR STORY started eight years ago with a blue-eyed Midwestern lady with quick wit, meeting a handsome Peruvian designer on a dating site and that was all she wrote for both of us! The interest is a powerful thing that brought us together and we are hoping that it will works it magic again to help us connect with a birth family. We are about to celebrate six years of marriage and can’t wait to grow our family. We live in the Los Angeles area with our daughter, Luna, who is 4 years old and our 13 year old Yorkie, Swanky.
WHY ADOPTION? Michelle’s sister was adopted as an infant and her adoption was closed. It’s been a life long dream of Michelle’s to be in a position to adopt a child. In addition, our daughter was conceived via IVF, with only a 30% chance of getting pregnant, and was born in Texas ten weeks early. Fortunately, Luna was born healthy and didn’t have any major issues apart from a low birth weight. Luna was our little miracle baby! She had to remain in the NICU for 46 days until she reached five pounds and was able to drink bottles on her own successfully. Michelle is very high risk for pre-term labor and we did not want to chance trying IVF again knowing that he same thing could happen again. Adopting a child one day has been a dream for us and we’ve been working diligently for the last few years to make it come true! We relocated back to Los Angeles, so that we could begin our home study process and start our adoption journey. Our home study was approved in January 2019 and we are so excited for what life has in store for us!
OUR FAMILY is complete with: love, hugs, diversity, weekend naps, laughing until we cry, movie nights, quality-time, trips to the beach, and dancing...lots of dancing! We are ready to welcome your child into our home and give him/her the love and care they deserve from the bottom of our hearts. We would be honored to love them, teach him/her the importance of getting a good education, to be courteous to their elders and open doors, and to enjoy life and take every experience and grow from it. Our family and friends are very supportive of our journey to adopt and will be there to support your child every step of the way with the same love and devotion they have towards us.
OUR CAREERS in real estate allow us to be self-employed and the luxury to work from home, with a flexible schedule to make our family a priority. Not only are we partners in life, we are in work as well, to which everyone always asks us how we do it? Our answer is simple, we had to learn each other strengths and weaknesses in a work environment and then divide and conquer each task or objective based on that list. It took us a good six months to really get a system going between us at work, but now we’ve got it down. We are able to attend all school events, go on field trips with the kids at school (Michelle just took Luna’s class to the fire station and all the kids got to turn on the fire hose!), drop off & pickup from school, and make dinner together every night. Our plan once a new addition arrives into our family would be for Michelle to take at least nine months off from work to spend with the baby and then later he/she will go to a lovely daycare, which is the same one Luna went to just one block from our house.
FINDING OUR MATCH or our birth family we’ve found takes patience. Without a doubt, exploring adoption for your child is the most difficult decision anyone can make. We hope that we can be part of your journey and provide support, as well as give you peace with your decision. Our desire is to have an open adoption with you is to ensure that our child knows where he/she comes from, family history, where the love of a certain flavor of ice cream comes from and for you to be a part of our lives. If you only wish to have periodic updates along with photos to see how amazing the child is as they grow up, we will honor that as well. Michelle’s sister was adopted and knowing everything that she went through makes it that much more important to us that there be some form of open adoption, for everyone’s benefit, especially the child. We are ready to welcome you into our lives and provide you with all the support possible. A child can never have too many people who love him/her, so let's go on this journey together!
We wish you all the best and would love to answer any questions or provide any additional information that you would like or may need. Feel free to call or text us at 619-880-7275 or email us at email@example.com anytime.
With much admiration & respect,
Michelle, Julio & Big Sister Luna
