FIRST AND FOREMOST, thank you for considering us to love your baby. 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.
We will raise your baby in a happy home, with lots of love & affection, and Disney adventures!
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? Our journey to have a family hasn’t been an easy one. Michelle had some childhood medical issues that make it impossible to have children naturally, so with the help of several rounds of IVF treatments, we were finally able to have Luna. Her arrival came after a horrible loss of another daughter that didn’t make it to term, and two miscarriages. Luna was born very prematurely at 29 weeks, so we are very blessed that she is healthy and you would never know today that she was born as early as she was. Going down the IVF road again isn’t an option, due to Michelle’s high risk of very pre-mature labor. We want more than anything to watch our kids grow up together and have an unbreakable bond with one another! Adopting a child one day has always been our plan and we started the process a few years ago. Our home study was completed in Jan. 2019, so we are so excited for what the future holds!
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
