David & Jorge

– Texas –

Introduction

We are a happily married couple who have been together nearly 5 years. We met in a coed volleyball game, and hit it off immediately. Our joint desire to be fathers and strong relationship with our families brought the dream of building our own family together a reality when we got married in 2017. Jorge has traveled the world, enjoys teaching spin class and creating memories with our nieces and nephews, including our regular sugar parties. David loves to read mysteries, explore yoga, and have dance parties with his godson. We enjoy regular game nights with our friends. We live in a quiet neighborhood with sprawling oak trees and bike trails to the local lake.

Dear Expectant Mother:

We thank you for your courage, strength, and openness to consider adoption. As a couple, adoption is the path we have decided to take to start a family and hope after reading our profile you will consider us as the couple that can take good care of your baby. Family has helped our relationship grow stronger throughout the years, we value our relationships with our parents, nieces, nephews, brothers and sisters. It’s this support system that we want to continue nurturing as we bring a little one into our home. Adoption is near and dear to us, Jorge’s Mom was adopted at birth, and want you to know that this child will know the story of how they helped us become a family of our own.

We both individually felt the desire to adopt at different parts of our lives. David dreamed of being a husband and father his entire life, and he shared his passion for providing a home for a child since his teens. David’s college friend adopted 14 years ago, and this experience reinforced David’s interest. Jorge also dreamed of parenthood through adoption when his niece Gillian was born when he was 16. This desire was strengthened by the fact his mom is adopted. Jorge was raised with the understanding that love makes a family. As a couple, we discussed our individual goals to adopt early in the relationship, evolving the dream into a shared vision. We have both established our careers to a successful point where parenthood could become a focus. After purchasing our home and getting married, we decided it was time to work towards this life changing step in our adventure. Our families are supportive of our adoption journey, they are happy, and our parents can’t wait to see a grandchild that grows up in our household. Adoption is giving someone like Jorge’s Mom an opportunity to grow up in a family full of love, and we are ready to be Dads (Padres).

OUR STORY

OUR HOME

Our home was built in the 1950’s in a neighborhood with huge oak trees that cover the streets, which is rare in Texas. We fell in love with the house the moment we stepped through the front door. With original oak floors and open space, we knew this would be the house we could raise a family. We believe the home should reflect our personalities, so we built an outdoor deck where we grill with our friends and family on the weekends and flowerbeds that are always in bloom. We also built a front porch with rocking chairs, where we can enjoy seeing the neighbors with the kids enjoying the outdoors. Our guilty pleasure is to take one of the many biking trails from the neighborhood to the lake or local parks on a Saturday afternoon.

OUR PETS

We adopted two orange and white kittens in September 2018 from the local SPCA. We were potentially looking to adopt one kitten, but we refused to separate the sisters since they were together since birth. Buffy and Twilight are sweet, playful and very affectionate cuddly. They love to play with toys, and are the most social kittens you will ever meet.

OUR FAMILY

Our families come from different backgrounds, which has helped us appreciate diversity even more. David was raised in a small town where everyone knew each other. His favorite memory was his mom, the first female Little League coach, leading the team to first place that season. She taught David to live life by his own standards, not based on others. David’s parents are now retired, and they enjoy spoiling the grandchildren from David’s four siblings. Jorge was born in a small town in Mexico until his parents moved to California to raise their family when he was five. Jorge has grown up with a blend of the American and Mexican cultures, and his family traditions are a mix of cultures that make the holidays even more special. We love that our family is diverse, and we are ready to grow and create new traditions in our family.

I’ve known David for nearly 10 years during that time he has been the same strong friend I have ever know, only growing stronger as an individual. David is loyal and compassionate friend. I saw this immediately in our friendship. He is dedicated to making time for his friends and family even if it is just a phone call on the way to the grocery store, he makes sure he stays connected to those he cares about.  When I first met Jorge, I saw these same qualities. Jorge always speaks passionately about his friends and his family. He keeps a strong bond with his circle of friends and is there for them in a heartbeat if they need him. I see both David and Jorge often with my 6-year-old son. David from my son’s birth was his “uncle David” and when he began dating Jorge, not by saying anything Jorge instantly became “uncle Jorge”. I see them both the same way with my son Chance as they are with the people whom they love and care for and this reflects in the way my son receives their loves as he never wants to play with anyone else when uncle David or uncle Jorge are around.

If you know me, you would know that my son is connected at my hip. Each time we go over to David and Jorge’s house is typically spent with them playing volleyball in the backyard with my son for some time. Then either we make a pizza all together from scratch and watch a Disney movie. They are on my top call list for back up babysitters when the grandparents are not around. Other than my son, David and Jorge both have nieces and nephews they are very involved and active in their lives.

They are both written in my will to be the primary guardians of my son if anything should happen to myself and father. Hopefully that speaks mountains. I trust them entirely with my son, individually as well as together.

Both David and Jorge have the most important skill at raising a child, which is love, I as a mom know that there are a ton of different skills that you must have to raise a child. All where we have our faults and miss at times, but at the end of the day as long as there is love and our children are happy and healthy we are doing a great job at being a parent. David and Jorge both possess this and I have no doubt will be love their child(ren) exceptionally.

If it was my decision, they would be my first pick for adoption. I have no doubt that any child placed in their home will grow up knowing exactly what it means to have a true loving household. That child will be truly blessed.

When I met David over 7 years ago at a volleyball clinic, he was the friendliest person l’d ever known. He had the kindest disposition and sweetest demeanor that drew me to him and wanted to be around him. We became friends fast. I have been fortunate to experience the incredible man that David is. He looks for the best in everyone. He never wants anyone to feel left out. He roots for the underdog and will go out of his way to try and make someone’s day a little brighter.

When David met Jorge, I could see fireworks. After they started dating, even after a very short amount of time, I knew this was going to be a very special relationship.

I’ve known Jorge since the beginning of his and David’s relationship. The first impression came on the volleyball court. Jorge is a strong and fierce competitor. He is the type of person you want on your team, whether it’s volleyball or LIFE; he’s going to give you 110%. He doesn’t believe in quitting. He is loyal and true to his word. He is also incredibly funny, especially when he speaks in a British accent! Jorge is a big teddy bear (when you know him) that you love to be around.

My husband and I have been together for 4 years. David and Jorge welcomed him into their lives instantaneously- It not only shows they are a good judge of character, but it also shows me their love (for me) because they want the best for my life. When we all spend time together, we often share in, preparing some aspect of the meal, whether it’s putting all of our bought items on display for munching or preparing a home-cooked meal. We gather together as a family in the kitchen and talk about everything that’s happened since we last saw one another, or some topical news story. We eat, we enjoy a drink, and we play games for hours on end. It’s truly the life you dream of living; the most special and cherished times with family that love you and accept you as you are.

David and Jorge love LIFE. They complement one another perfectly. They work cohesively and yet still maintain strong, personal, individual convictions. They are dedicated to becoming parents. This has been the plan for some time. Together they are focused. Together they are strong. I love David and Jorge.

David and Jorge are ultimate professionals. They have worked long and hard to get to this point in their careers and lives where they are prepared to provide loving and caring home to children. When it comes to interests and activities, they each maintain a great balance to ensure both are centered and focused on home and family.

If it were my choice to make, I would confidently, peacefully and joyfully make the decision to place a child in their home. Knowing these two incredible human beings and knowing the over-flowing love they have in their hearts for children, it would be the easiest choice I’d ever have to make. These will be the luckiest and most loved children in the world!
