We are a young, God centered couple, and we are thrilled to be starting our family through adoption. Some of the things we enjoy are game nights, fellowship, camping, and gardening. We have a large extended family and they are all eagerly waiting to welcome your child into our home. We look forward to building long lasting memories with your child, as well as getting to know you.
We are high school sweethearts, but it was definitely not love at first sight. It took us a while to build up our friendship and relationship, but once we did we were inseparable! We went on to attend and graduate from the same college in 2015, and in December of the same year we were married. We had always talked about adoption, and feel like God gave us the push we needed in that direction when Isabel was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2018. We decided to forgo fertility treatments and grow our family through adoption instead, and we could not be more excited! We are a loving couple who enjoys traveling and exploring new places. We love to try all different kinds of food when we travel, one of our favorite traditions is to try a local pizza place wherever we go! We also enjoy spending time with our family and friends. When we get together on weekends we like to play board games while we enjoy each other's company. As natural educators we look forward to making education a priority in your child's life. We hope to inspire their curiosity of the outdoors, as well a love for adventure.
About Alex (By Isabel)
Alex is a compassionate, loving husband who is always willing to lend a hand to whoever needs it. He enjoys hosting gatherings in our home and loves being the host that goes above and beyond. In his free time, Alex likes to fish, camp, and garden, all of which I know he is excited to share and teach to a child. He has also recently taken up photography so I know there will be detailed documentation of our children's milestones and accomplishments.
I have watched his love for Jesus grow into a beautiful relationship and I admire the way he serves Christ throughout his life. I know that Alex will be an incredible father and that he will always take the responsibility of that role seriously. He has plenty of knowledge, wisdom, and love to share with any child that is welcomed into our home.
About Isabel (By Alex)
Isabel is the most loving and patient person I know. She is a Montessori teacher and a Director for our churches' Northern CA youth camp. She loves to teach and build the next generation and I know she would provide so much love and education to your child, teaching them how to become independent and constantly reading to them. Isabel also loves baking and crocheting and I know she would make great memories with our child and crochet them blankets to cherish for a lifetime. I can see Isabel teaching our child secret family recipes and sharing how food always brings people together. She also loves the beach and seahorses, and her love for Jesus is like no other.
Our Home in California
We live in a single-level home that we bought in 2016. We have a three bedroom house, and have big plans for turning one of those bedrooms into a nursery for your child. Our home is located in a family-friendly neighborhood close to parks and schools. One of our favorite parts of our home is the backyard, where we have built a small garden area, as well as put in fruit trees. Our backyard is fenced and has plenty of room to run around and play. We conveniently live at the halfway point between the California coast and the Sierra Nevada's, so adventure is never too far away!
We share our home with our 2 dogs. We have an eleven-year-old small Poodle mix, who thinks he's the king of the house. We also have an adorable one and half-year-old Australian Shepard who has so much love and energy to share. They love going on walks around our neighborhood, taking trips to Lowes to practice their obedience skills, and going on trips to the beach and camping. We know they will be great companions for any little one!
We have a large extended family on both sides, who are all so excited to help us welcome the first grandchild and great-grandchild on both sides into our home. We come from traditional Hispanic households where we are both second-generation Mexican Americans. Our family is supportive of our plans for adoption and they are eager to include our child in activities like family camping, cooking family meals, and barbeques at the park. When we get together there is always laughter and joy to be had, we know our family will be a great support for any child that comes into our home and we cannot wait to share that with them.
We promise to love, cherish, and embrace your child with everything we have. We will raise them to know Jesus and the love He has for everyone. We will equip them with what they need to become kind, compassionate, respectful individuals. We will work diligently to provide for them the opportunity to pursue their goals, and support them through whatever challenges they may face. We will provide a safe, comfortable place for them to call home, where you will be honored and talked about with the utmost respect.

More About Our Family
Every Saturday our family gets together for lunch and board games. This is a time where we not only get to enjoy each others company but we catch up on how everyone's week was. Since we come from Hispanic households these lunches always include a ton of delicious food, some of our favorites include sopes, chile rellenos, and pozole. On Sundays we usually take to relax and prep for the coming week.
We are both Christians who love Jesus. We try to live out our faith on a daily basis. The best way we know how to do that is to serve others and the church. For us this looks like volunteering as Sabbath school teachers, youth leaders, and camp counselors.
