Hello! We are Kevin and Maria. We are honored that you are taking the time to learn more about us.

We are so excited to build our family through adoption! We received an unexplained infertility diagnosis seven years ago, and after taking time to process this news, we realized adoption is how we want to build our family. We both come from big families and have been married for 8 years and together since we were 15 years-old. Having a family was always something we wanted and when we learned that we couldn’t, we knew adoption was the right path for us.

As parents, we plan to take an active role in our child’s life. Both of us have a natural curiosity about the world, and we hope to instill that curiosity in our child. Kevin is scientist at-heart and works in the field of cancer software. Maria is a college professor and teaches writing. Both of us have an inherent desire to make the world a better place, and we hope to extend this sense of hope to our child.

We also are adventure-seekers, and we look forward to exposing our child to new experiences and cultivating their interests. We will create a safe environment that fosters our child’s creativity, kindness, and compassion for others. More than anything, we will love our child, be open about their adoption story, and devote our lives to supporting their needs, desires, and aspirations.

We hope to open our lives up to you and develop a strong relationship. We realize your decision is hard, and we hope that our profile helps answer some of your questions. We are in awe of your decision to consider a family that meets your hopes for this future little one. We wish you only the best as you continue this adoption journey.
