Miguel & Susan

We feel blessed to be able to consider adoption as a way of expanding our family. We look forward to becoming parents and helping your child navigate through life with continued love and support. We wish you courage and strength as you go through this difficult process. We would love your child to become a part of our happy, loving, and ethnically diverse family.

Our Life Priorities

Having Fun With Our Nephews

We both value God, family, honesty, communication, treating people with respect, helping people who are less fortunate than we are, and spending quality time with each other. We always make it a priority to laugh on a daily basis. We don't care about the superficial things in life (like having the best car or best clothes). We really try to focus on each other by spending time together and building memories. We believe it is people and the interactions with others that lead to a truly fulfilling life. We know that others are not as fortunate as we are and donate money to charitable causes and try to help others in our community who are in need of services. We can't wait for the opportunity to share our values and love with a child. We will make sure to always spend quality time with your child so that the child knows how important they are in our life.

Our Leisure Time

Enjoying a Soccer Game

We do a variety of things in our leisure time. We do spend a lot of time with each of our families and frequently see each of our families on at least a weekly basis. When we are not with our extended families, we enjoy taking our dog for walks, going to the movies, going to the zoo, bowling, playing board games and card games, and visiting our favorite ice-cream store. We love to travel and learn about people and customs of the cities we visit. We also enjoy exercise and make an effort to engage in some form of exercise a few times a week. We have some exercise equipment in the house which makes it easy for us to try and stay healthy.

We both enjoy attending soccer, football, and basketball games. The University of Arizona Wildcats is our favorite team. We usually attend the games with Miguel's parents since they are also big fans of the Wildcats. We can't wait to have your child share all of these activities with us.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Miguel About Susan: Susan's love of life and her passion for helping others have been her most admirable traits. What I most respect about her is her intelligence, strength, and willingness to give of herself. I love her laughter, smile, and thoughtfulness. Susan will make a great mother and I'm so excited to be her partner in raising a child. Susan's belief in strong family ties and traditions will create a great environment for a child to grow up in.

Susan About Miguel: Miguel is a wonderful, loving, and caring husband. He has a great sense of humor and can always make me laugh. He has such a big heart and a strong work ethic. He is very generous and is always wiling to help friends and family. He is fiercely loyal to friends and family. I have seen him excel in so many different roles as a husband, son, brother, friend, uncle, cousin, engineer. I have no doubt he will also excel at being a great father.

Our House and Neighborhood

Home Sweet Home

Our home is such a happy and relaxing place. We have three bedrooms and an Arizona room (which is where our dog Cisco spends his time when we are not at home). Our favorite room in the house is our living room which is where we spend most of our time together as a family (talk, play with Cisco, laugh, play board/card games, and watch our favorite television shows).

Our community is a very culturally diverse and family oriented place. Our home is about five minutes walking distance from a great elementary school, church, and a park/tennis courts. We have a very safe neighborhood and frequently see families out riding their bikes and walking their dogs. Every weekend the park is filled with families having birthday parties or just having lots of fun.

There is an annual neighborhood potluck where friends and families get together to share food from their own cultural backgrounds. Our city also holds an annual convention that brings together adults and children from the community (from a variety of cultural backgrounds) to share their traditions of food, music, and dance. We can't wait for your child to become part of our community and build connections with other children.

Our Extended Families

Miguel's Family

Family is a very important part of our lives. Every Friday Miguel's family gets together for dinner so that everyone can catch up and eat yummy home-cooked Mexican food. Susan's family also gets together frequently to cook/eat. Susan's mom is a retired chef and loves to cook and teach family members how to make Middle Eastern food. Because we are a bicultural family we are frequently swapping recipes and incorporating different foods into our celebrations.

Susan's Family

All of our family members (including our rescue dog Cisco who likes to give kisses and receive belly rubs) are thrilled that we have decided to adopt. Most of our family (grandparents, siblings, 7 nieces and nephews, and 50 cousins) live close to us and can't wait to be involved in your child's life. We have nieces and nephews that are already asking when your child will be a part of our lives and be able to attend family functions. The child's grandparents are already calling in to request time to watch this child. There is never a dull moment when our family is together. We are frequently attending holidays, celebrations, birthday parties, sporting events that family members are involved in, school/band recitals, graduations, and award ceremonies. We are fortunate to have such a large family that is very close and involved in our lives. We can't wait for your child to become a part of our loving extended family.

From Us to You

We have been married for five years. We were both lucky enough to have found our best friend in each other. This is our first marriage for both us and we did not have any of our own biological children. We have always wanted to become parents and frequently discussed how we would raise our children since we started dating. When we discovered we were unable to have biological children we realized that was only an obstacle that was placed in our path and that God had a different journey in mind for us. We both waited a long time to find our ideal partner, so it just made sense to us that we would also have to wait a little longer to find our child. We are so excited to be pursing adoption as a way of expanding our family. We can't wait to shower your child with unconditional love and support.

We know that this is an extremely difficult choice for you to make and want to put your mind at ease that your child will be raised in a happy, honest, respectful, and loving environment. Because we know that life can sometimes get difficult, we always make an effort to make each other laugh on a daily basis. We both value diversity and are committed to raising your child with a respect for all people. We hope that Susan's career as a Psychologist (working with both children and adults) for the last 14 years will bring you some comfort in knowing that your child's emotional needs will always be of the utmost importance to us.

We are very determined people and value hard work. Our families taught us that you can achieve anything as long as you are willing to put in the effort. Both of us had to work very hard to get to a place in our professions that allows us the flexibility to be able to provide for a child both physically and emotionally. We both came from families that did not have a lot of money growing up. We feel blessed that we were always supported/encouraged by them to pursue our educational endeavors and engage in activities outside of school that were of particular interest. We can't wait to discover what activities/subjects in school your child will be interested in and encourage further exploration. Raising this child will be our priority in life.

We are both very close to our families and believe it is family that makes a life truly happy and fulfilling. Both of our immediate families and friends are very supportive and excited about our decision to adopt. We can't wait to introduce your child to our family and friends. We are exited that this child will be surrounded by a lot people who are ready to give your child a lot of love.

If you desire we would love to send you letters, emails, and pictures of milestones in your child's life. Additionally, if you desire we are open to meeting you once after your child has been placed with us so that you can alleviate any concerns you may have about placement. Please know that your child will know that you are a very courageous woman who had to make a very difficult choice. We will be open and honest regarding your child's adoption and will make sure you are always referred to in a caring and respectful manner.

We wish you love and peace as you go through this incredibly difficult process.
