Dear Birth Family,


Hi! We are Michelle & Julio, we have been married for five years and can’t wait to grow our family. We live in the Los Angeles area with our daughter, Luna, who is four and a half and our thirteen year old dog, Swanky.

Our family is filled with: love, diversity, joy, laughter, adventure, quality-time, and desiring to adopt since before we got married. 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 will raise them to be honest, compassionate, caring, hardworking, and appreciative, but, most importantly, to be happy.

Without a doubt, this is a hard decision, but we commend you for choosing this path. We hope that we can be part of your journey and provide support, as well as give you peace with your decision. We are blessed with the greatest village. Hoping for a baby and birth family to add to it!

With much admiration & respect,
Julio + Michelle

Who We Are

We met eight years ago on a dating site. Truth be told, Julio ignored Michelle’s request to communicate for over a week. Finally, Julio wrote back apologizing for his very delayed reply and blamed it on an injury due to running the LA marathon. Likely story she thought! We met for dinner and shut the restaurant down. The rest is the fun part of the story! On our third date, we went to a Dodger game and neither of us really enjoys baseball. Second inning, a foul ball is coming towards us. What does Julio do? He leans as far over to his right away from Michelle with his hands protecting his glasses to get out of the way. Thankfully, we didn’t get hit and vowed to never go to a game again.

Two years later we got married in San Francisco surrounded by 40 of our closest friends and relatives. We’ve since moved twice out of state for Michelle’s previous career in product development, first to Chicago, then Texas (where Luna was born), and back to Los Angeles. After having our daughter in 2014, Michelle switched careers to be able to spend more time with the family and have a flexible schedule. Best decision she ever made!

Our daughter was conceived via IVF after a few attempts. From the first week we met, it was always a mutual desire to adopt a child one day. Over the past couple of years we have been preparing for our adoption journey and we are so excited to expand our family to make us the Party of 5!

One of our most recent date nights, we attended an 80’s concert featuring Salt N Pepa, Lisa Lisa, and the Village People. It was one of the best concerts we’ve been too!

Our weekends are all about spending time together, cooking breakfast at home and eating Michelle’s gourmet French toast with fruit, watching Peppa Pig on Sunday morning as a family, drawing chalk art in front of our house, exploring new places in and around the LA area, hanging our hammock at the park and staring up at the sky, or at the beach digging gigantic holes in the sand for no apparent reason! It’s just what our daughter loves to do.

Adoption Diary

Hike to the top

Today was a beautiful day, so we decided to go have a picnic and a hike with friends. The kiddos made it all the way to the top and as soon as they got home it was nap time.

Why are you stopping?

Swanky loves to lay right next to us and especially loves a good massage. She is staring to have back problems due to her age, so she gets extra special care. Julio stopped for a minute and this was the look she threw his way!

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

We truly appreciate your kindness and strength and look forward to hearing from you.
