Dear Birthmother, we are SO GRATEFUL that you are taking time to learn about us.

We can’t say it enough, thank you so much for taking the time to look at our profile to learn about who we are. We admire you for considering adoption and respect your decision. Though we have not met, we know that you are a brave, strong, loving woman. We are a fun loving Florida couple who are ready to start a family. We would be so honored and grateful for the opportunity to become parents through the miracle of adoption. We have been married for almost 3 years and are so ready to start a family of our own. We have 2 dogs named Abbie and Rylie and they cannot wait to be big sisters! We cannot wait to have kids to celebrate holidays, take them to the fair and theme parks, and enjoy family time.


The Beginning:

We have a strong relationship based on love, respect and honesty. Our journey together began 8 years ago when we met through mutual friends. After a few dates we realized that we were meant to be and were married 5 years later! We have been married for almost three years and love it. Not only are we best friends, but we are also business partners. We own and operate a family restaurant (we think it is the best food in town!). When we’re not busy doing day to day tasks at the restaurant we love to watch TV, relax and travel.

About Fernando, By Stephanie:

Fernando’s Great Attitude and zest for life is what attracted me to him. He truly lights up any room that he walks into. I love that he is a true family man. There is nothing that he enjoys more than spending the day with family. Having a strong relationship with everyone in his family is something that is important to Fernando. I know that he will instill the importance of family onto our future child. He is a child at heart, which is why he has such a great bond with our nieces. I know by the way that he treats them that he is going to be an amazing Dad.

About Stephanie, By Fernando:

I am so proud to call Stephanie my wife, I don’t know how I got so lucky! She is the most caring, honest and family oriented person that I know. Stephanie has a very adventurous spirit, which is what I love the most about her. She is always open to new experiences and is determined to succeed in everything that she tries. She is compassionate and kind. I know that she will be a great
Mom and I cannot wait to see her with our future child.

Family is so important in our lives!

Conveniently, most of our family lives within 30 minutes of our home, including Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins! We enjoy spending holidays and weekends with our family. We like to eat on Thanksgiving and our nieces love to open presents on Christmas. Our friends and family often visit us at our restaurant, as we are there every day! It’s great when familiar faces pop in to catch up. Everyone in our family have been so supportive of our decision to adopt and cannot wait to welcome our newest family member!

Do What You Love…

We own a family restaurant close to our house that offers the best food in our town! It is important to both of us to be involved in our future child’s life. Owning our own business gives us the flexibility that we need for our family. We feel blessed that Stephanie will be a stay at home mom! She looks forward to taking our child to Story Hour at the local library and many playdates with our friends.

The place we call home!

We live in a beautiful tree-lined neighborhood in a 4 bedroom, 3 bath home! It is a very nice and welcoming family-friendly community. We are nearby to excellent private schools and plan on sending our child there. Our house is the entertainer’s house and we have Christmas there every year. We love spending the Holidays at home with our family.

Our Promise to You:

We promise to love your child unconditionally and always help them to achieve their goals, no matter what they are!  We promise to love and accept them and to teach them to do the same.  We promise to raise them to be a responsible member of society.  Most of all, we promise that they will be happy!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about us!
