To A Very Special Lady Who Could Change Our Lives,

We appreciate you taking the time to learn more about us!
We cannot wait to add a beautiful child to our family to make us a party of five! We hope this gives you the opportunity to feel all the love your child will receive from us, our family and friends, and to get a glimpse into our lives filled with annual traditions, car dancing, 80’s music, chalk art, and so much more.

If you choose us, your baby will be blessed with an amazing big sister, a Yorkie full of kisses, and amazing parents. That’s what our friends tell us anyway! 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 give you peace with your decision.

With much admiration & respect,
Julio + Michelle

Who We Are

We met on a dating site in 2011. 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, 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

Oh…shoes!

At this age, a four year old seems to grow a half size every three months, so we had to go buy new shoes. Luna prefers to try them on and pick them out herself. While in the store she asked me where the baby shoes were and wanted to go check them out. I captured this moment of her comparing a baby shoe to her shoe! She told me that when our baby arrives, she wants to pick out his/her shoes.

Luna’s 4th birthday - San Francisco

For every birthday leading up to the 4th, Luna has wanted a party at home with all of her friends, bounce house fun, arts & crafts, etc. This year her request was to go visit her Godfather in San Francisco. We planned a party ahead of time inviting friends in the Bay Area to the house party there. Off we went to San Francisco for the seven hour road trip. Four days with our close friends & family, hitting some of the tourist spots, driving on the Golden Gate Bridge, visited the Marine Mammel Center to see the seals & sea lions that are rescued and nursed back to health, enjoyed dim sum with family, and had an amazing 4th birthday party for Luna!  We are so lucky to have such amazing friends that are able to come to LA to visit us a lot from San Francisco, so it was nice to take Luna there for the first time and to see the city through her eyes!
