We are SO HAPPY that you are taking time to learn about us and viewing our profile to see who we are. We admire you for considering adoption and respect your decision.  We are a fun-loving Florida couple who are ready to expand our family. We would be so honored and grateful for the opportunity to become parents again through the miracle of adoption. We have been married for almost 5 years. We have a son named Nico who is almost a year and cannot wait to be a big brother! We cannot wait to grow our family, so we can celebrate holidays, go to the pumpkin patch, take them to the fair and theme parks, and enjoy family time.

Our Story

We have a strong relationship based on love, respect and honesty. Our journey together began 10 years ago when we met at work. After a few dates we realized that we were meant to be and were married 5 years later! We have been married for almost 5 years and are very happy. 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 be outdoors, relax and travel.

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 a fantastic mother to Nico.  She is patient, kind, and loving.  She has always dreamed of staying home with our children and I’m so happy that she can!

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.  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 children. He is a child at heart, which is why he has such a great bond with our son and our nieces. He is such an amazing Dad to Nico.  He just loves spending time with Daddy!

About Nico

Our son Nico is amazing!  He is inquisitive, curious and adorable. He was adopted at birth and has been a perfect addition to our family.  He loves to swim in the pool and loves the beach.  He loves everyone that he meets and everyone in our family loves him so much.  We can already tell what a sweet big brother he will be in the way that he treats his smaller cousins and our dogs.  We are blessed that Stephanie can stay home with him so he can get the best start in life.

Our Home

We live in a beautiful tree-lined neighborhood in a 4 bedroom, 3 bath home! We have been in our house for 7 years. It is a very nice and welcoming family-friendly community. We are nearby to excellent private schools and plan on sending our children there. Our house is the entertainer’s house for parties and BBQ’s and we have Christmas here every year. We love spending the Holidays at home with our family.

Our Family

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.  Everyone in our family has been so supportive of our decision to adopt Nico and cannot wait to welcome our newest family member!

Our Promise

We promise to love your child unconditionally and to always help them achieve their goals, whatever they may be.  We promise to love and accept them and to teach them to do the same to others.  We promise to raise them as a responsible member of society.  Most of all, we promise that they will be happy!

Thank you

We hope you enjoyed this glimpse into our lives.  We wish you luck and peace with your decision.
