We understand this is a major decision you are making and are truly honored to be considered as potential parents for your child. There is only so much information we can provide explaining why you may want to choose us, but know that we are able and willing to show your child all the love and care we were fortunate enough to receive from our families. There are countless family members and friends eagerly waiting for us to welcome a child into our home. We hope to connect with a birth mother that sees how passionate we are about taking this major step toward parenthood.
In 2009 both of us relocated to Chicago. We happened to be out one evening and Carlos mistakenly thought Jordan was a friend he was waiting for and began shouting this friend’s name from across the street. Upon realizing Jordan was a complete stranger, we had a chuckle but kept our conversation going- a friendship soon followed. After hanging out a few times we realized there was a mutual attraction and our friendship quickly blossomed into a romantic relationship.
Fast forward five years and countless amazing experiences in Chicago...we had a mutual love of the West coast and moved to California in 2014. We were married on a beautiful sunny day at Coronado Beach in San Diego on January 29, 2016. We love taking advantage of the California weather by spending time at the beach, hiking, biking, and taking road trips with our two pups (Wrigley and Oso). We live driving distance to many great cities so it is not unusual for us to plan weekend trips to do more exploring- Palm Springs, Grand Canyon in Arizona, or snowboarding in Big Bear Mountain.
Carlos has two brothers living nearby in San Diego who eagerly await becoming uncles for the first time. The rest of our immediate family lives in the Midwest but visit frequently; we also visit them at least at least four times a year. We have been blessed with an extended family of close friends, many with children of their own- they are ready to plan play dates with our child. The holidays tend to be a time for all of us to get together and we graciously host Thanksgiving and Christmas at our house. We love seeing all those smiling faces eating dinner around our table.
