Jaime, Kristina, & Olivia

We're a family founded on love, faith, laughter, family memories and lots of hugs and kisses.

First and foremost, we want you to know that you are surrounded by additional love and support from the three of us, our family, and friends.

You’re a strong and courageous individual to have made the decision to create an adoption plan for your baby girl. You’re providing us with an amazing gift and blessing, and we will always be forever grateful to you.

Together, we all share a common bond of a loss of a child and we can empathize with you in a small way. Therefore, it is our hope that we can provide you with the encouragement and reassurance throughout your journey. We know that pictures are pretty powerful, and we can guarantee that you will never be without. Our cameras are always an arm length away from us, especially when it comes to Jaime --At times, it seems like Jaime’s professional camera plays the role of a security blanket because it never leaves his side! 

We also want you to know that we welcome an open adoption, and we really want to have the opportunity to get to you know you. Our hope is that our relationship will grow naturally over time; starting with some contact initially. We want only the best for you, and we hope you have the opportunity to set and accomplish your goals. You have your whole life ahead of you to learn, to explore, and to find your passion in life. When you find your passion, you will know it because you want to do nothing else but that. We hope to have the opportunity to watch you from the sidelines and cheer you on.

Without a doubt, we are ready to be parents again. We are especially ready to be parents to your baby girl and Olivia is ready to be a big sister. We frequently talk and imagine what it would be like to have and raise another little girl (or “Sissy” as Olivia refers to her as), and our hearts swell with so much love and anticipation. We know that we’re going to be many fun and challenging times, but we will work together as a team to raise her to be a beautiful young lady with high morals, values, confidence, and a love for life, her family, and God.

We are confident that you will make the right decision for your baby, and we will wait patiently and remain in high spirits because we are firm believers that things happen for a reason.

All the best,
-Jaime, Kristina, and Olivia

Who We Are

We are Jaime, Kristina, and Olivia and we’re so excited to tell you a little bit about our family.
We met in May 2001 at a mutual friend's graduation. We hit it off right away and we had a lot to talk about, especially comparing stories and adventures from our hometown. Believe it or not, we are from the same town, but we met 600 miles away from home.

When we got married thirteen years ago, and our love and commitment to one another remains stronger than ever, especially after the personal loss of our baby boy in Summer 2012. Kristina became pregnant with our son, Santiago. We were elated. The pregnancy was normal and perfect. It was during the 20-week sonogram that we learned that our son was extremely sick with a rare condition, and he would later pass away within the month. We were on an amazing journey with our little angel, but through it all we have remained at each other's side, hand in hand and committed to becoming parents again.

Since Santiago’s condition was very rare, Kristina’s doctors had recommended we postpone our family planning until the completion of all the genetic tests. By the 10- month mark, we were absolutely done waiting. We yearned to be parents again, so we picked up the phone and called an adoption agency. The adoption agency was in a different city, but the distance didn’t matter because the agency came highly recommended from a family friend. We started the adoption process at the beginning of Summer 2013 and our prayers were answered when we matched with an amazing birth mom. She delivered and placed a healthy baby girl in Kristina’s arms in the Fall 2013. We were beyond blessed that Olivia’s adoption moved swiftly and smoothly, and Kristina is forever grateful to have an opportunity to get to know and bond with a very special young lady. It’s a relationship Kristina will always hold dear to her heart, and she looks forward to day to share it with Olivia.

Our sweet, Olivia will be turning 6 years old in few weeks. She’s currently thriving as a Kindergartner at a neighborhood Spanish-Immersion elementary school. She has a witty sense of humor, an imagination that is hands down awesome, and a self-confidence that’s truly admirable and genuine. She loves to play with other children; so is quite common for Kristina to be scheduling play dates, walking her around the neighborhood or knocking on neighbors’ doors to see anyone wants to play, or they just take the route of heading to the park. At 2.5 years old, we noticed Olivia’s natural talent for and true passion for gymnastics. She’s progressed from the initial Daddy & Me class to now a competition level team. It’s a true joy to watch her in her element.

Olivia is beyond excited to be a Big Sister and has already given her little sister her nickname, Sissy. She talks about Sissy as if she’s already here. She says things like, “When Sissy comes, I’m going to have to…. or “When Sissy gets bigger, she and I will get to…” Her heart is gigantic, and she can’t wait to shower her Sissy with affection. And as parents, we can’t wait for them to create a sister bond with constant companionship to explore life together, to share secrets, and do all the things sisters do together.

Adoption Diary

Olivia’s Special Intention (Wish)

In Disney’s Movie Coco, Miguel’s family puts together an ofrenda (an alter) to honor the family members who have passed away. The table is filled with pictures of their loved, their favorite items, and personal notes/wishes from the living family members.
While at Disney’s California Adventure, there was an ofrenda set up in Coco’s Plaza de la Familia (Coco’s Family Square) and it is there that visitors can write down their favorite family memories or wishes on a card.
Our sweet Olivia wrote her wish on a card….Bring <a> Sister. Olivia
Sissy is always on her mind and she continues to say her prayers that our family will be blessed with a Sissy soon.
