Hi, Warm-greetings from Alex and Alfredo.
We are excited to be part of your birth plan. We know once you meet us, you will find us capable and overjoyed to raise your child. We respect and admire the courageous decision you have made in searching for a loving home like ours. We hope we can demonstrate the values we offer, the love in our home, and life we can share. We know this decision will bring happiness and security to you, your baby and us.
We met New Year’s Eve seven years ago, through mutual friends. It was fate, because from the moment we met we knew there was something special. As we began getting to know more about one another, our love grew; we knew we had found the one. We enjoyed a long engagement, in which we built memories and friendships. I, Alex am a successful doctor in Los Angeles and I, Alfredo am a savvy business investor and CFO. Together we created a well respected chain of medical businesses, bought our first home and traveled around the world. After we opened our second medical building, we knew it was time to begin the most exciting part of our lives, growing our family.
We have always wanted to be parents and now is the best time for us. We knew that when the time was right, we would choose adoption. We are in great health, have acquired a great support network, and have businesses that run themselves. We believe in the importance of raising a well-rounded child with respect for diversity, arts and education. We both embrace family, education, language, and exploring cultural diversity. We love to travel, take pleasure in hosting at home and treasure family outings. Combined, we have a large family including five beautiful nieces and three awesome nephews whom we love very much. We have the tools, time and support necessary to raise a baby.
A little about Alfredo, by Alex
Alfredo is a loving, caring and humble man. He is my best friend and greatest supporter. He cheers me up when I am down and keeps me moving forward when I am ready to give up. Alfredo’s best qualities are that he is affectionate, generous and attentive. He is a rare man; his enthusiasm and charm leave a lasting memory. It is no wonder that many people revere him as a close friend. Many people can say that Alfredo has made their lives for the better. Alfredo takes great pride in his ability to balance work with personal life. He never makes me feel ignored or neglected. I love the way he surprises me with inspiring messages or loving gifts. He likes to remind me of his love and of how special I am to him. In his free time, he loves to go to Disneyland, a place that since his childhood has been very special; he loves to feel like a kid again. His food is so delicious that it is hard not to imagine the love that went into preparing it. His dream is to have children whom he can cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner for.
A LITTLE ABOUT ALEX by Alfredo
Alex is gentle, generous and selfless. He always puts my needs before his own. From the moment we met, he has always made sure I was happy. When we have visitors over he is the last to eat and the first one to clean. He loves for those around him to feel happy and welcomed. When I see him around people, I know he was born to be a family man. I see this very clearly when he is with the children, he lights-up with their laughter. In his free-time he loves to tend to the garden and take DaMa (our dog) hiking in the foothills. When the weather is less-than-sunny, which is rare here in California, he enjoys DIY projects and crafting. I find it amusing that he needs more room for his paints and brushes than he does for his clothes. I can truly say that Alex has lots of joy and laughter in his heart, this is one of the reasons patients love him. His greatest qualities are his compassion, honesty, and generosity.
OUR HOME & OUR COMMUNITY
We live in an amazing neighborhood surrounded by large parks and good schools. The community in our neighborhood is a fun, diverse and family-oriented group. When searching for our home we knew we wanted to be in a neighborhood where our future child would be raised. There are a variety of local restaurants, bakeries, and playgrounds walking distance from our home. During the weekends our community does everything possible to support small businesses and create farmer markets where we meet with local vendors, local restaurant owners and wellness doctors within the neighborhood. We spent the last few years making our home and yard as inviting as possible. We love to entertain and spend time outdoors.
FAMILY & FRIENDS
1. Alex Talks about his Family:
Growing up I thought it was rough having three sisters but it turns out it is a blessing. They are loving and supportive of me and are always there when I need them. My mom and dad have been married 45 years and spend every moment together, I aspire to have a story like theirs. They have taught me how important it is to be there for one another through thick or thin. I live 30 miles from my parents, whom take every opportunity to see us. I joke with Alfredo that I am jealous of his father-son relationship with MY dad, but secretly it makes me very happy. I am blessed with a loving and unconditional accepting family.
2. Alfredo Talks about his Family:
We have an amazing network of friends. We are blessed to be able to live near where we grew up because this has allowed us to keep our long-time friends and watch them grow, develop and create families of their own. Throughout the years we have established a foundation that has developed a strong bond with our friends whom we now see as family.
3. Alex and Alfredo talk about their friends:
I have a strong relationship with my immediate family. My mother and father are high school sweethearts and have been together for 40 years. Growing up in our household was myself, my older sister and my younger brother. My parents have always been very humble and compassionate people. My father’s work ethics influenced me to never give up on my dreams and my mother’s nurturing manner taught me to love and respect everyone. Together my parents had the perfect formula for raising their children. I spend a big portion of my time with my sister, who is now a mother of 3 amazing girls. I love Being able to watch them grow and be part of their lives.
She is our happy-go-lucky terrier puppy. She absolutely loves people and belly scratches. Her favorite hobbies are chasing squirrels and smelling flowers in our garden. She has a favorite spot on our property that she sun-bathes in every morning and evening. Her name means “lady” in Spanish, and it fits her well. One of our favorite quirks of hers is how she tip-toes on the grass and plays hot-lava with the stones in the garden. We love her quirky personality.
We promise to give him/her every possible opportunity, and praise their accomplishments.
We promise to always be supportive and encourage their education.
We promise to always make time to listen and be present and make them laugh.
We will always encourage who they want to be and help explore the different sides of whom they are.
Everyone in this family will feel loved.
