Meet Us

Nubia is fluent in English and Spanish and has found a great passion with teaching children in a public school that focuses on Spanish immersion


Jon cannot wait to be a dad! He has been working on his corny dad jokes his whole life.
Meet Nubia
Nubia is originally from South Florida but moved to Texas during her childhood. Nubia is proud to claim both as her homes. It was always important to go back to Florida as often as possible to spend time with extended family and keep Latin American customs and culture. Growing up hearing the amazing stories from her family members about their countries and how they came to live in the US inspired her to want to help people with language. Nubia is fluent in English and Spanish and has found a great passion with teaching children in a public school that focuses on Spanish immersion. She is looking forward to passing on the beauty of language and culture to our child.

Meet Jon
Jon was born on the West coast but grew up in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains where he loved playing in the snow as a kid. He has lived in Texas for most of his life, so he is now a bona-fide Texan.
Jon considers himself a home body and looks forward to relaxing at home with Nubia and Cora on the weekends (when not visiting family). Jon has worked at the same university for over 20 years and he plans to retire from there in roughly 12 years.

Meet Cora

She is so loved, not just by us, but by our families too.


Cora is part Beagle and part Dachshund.
Cora is part Beagle and part Dachshund. She was rescued by a local organization after being found on the street and having been hit by a car as a puppy. Because of her accident, she has a crooked smile that we are absolutely in love with. She doesn’t always make the best first impression because she has a big bark for her bitty body, but she soon warms up and is the best cuddle buddy! She’s a very sweet and loving pup. Her favorite things are to go on walks around the neighborhood with Jon, treats, laying out in the sun and curling up beside Nubia. She is so loved, not just by us, but by our families too. They love to love on her!
Our Promise

We will encourage honesty and kindness.


Thank you for taking the time to get to know us.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We hope this book reflects the love we have for each other and shows you the loving home we have built together to start our family. Please know that your child would grow up in a safe and comfortable environment. They will always be reminded of your courage and the love you have for them. We will encourage honesty and kindness. We will teach them to dream big, try new things, and express themselves openly. We will always support them and stand behind them whenever they need us. Most importantly, we will show them every day that they are loved, because we believe that love is essential to building a strong family.

Our Why

Nubia has always known that she wants to grow her family through adoption. Having worked most of her life with small children from so many backgrounds, and seeing loving families built through adoption, it’s never been a question for her. Jon has always wanted a family, so when we met and Nubia expressed her desire to adopt, Jon was onboard immediately.

Our Traditions

We love celebrating holidays and special occasions with family. Since our families don’t live in the same city as us, we alternate major holidays between Jon’s family and Nubia’s family. Sometimes during the holiday season we will travel to spend it with extended family. A few special yearly traditions we enjoy are making a gingerbread house with one of our nieces at Christmastime, Jon’s family going fishing for Father’s Day, and we like to take trips to Walt Disney World as often as we can! Every couple of years, Jon’s entire family will get together and make movies. We put on a full, months-long production and even have a “red carpet” premiere it at a local movie theater for our friends and family. One of the sweetest traditions was Jon taking our friend’s daughter to the annual Daddy Daughter Dance for many years after her father passed away.
