Geoffrey & Paloma

Thank you so much for considering us as an option in your important decision to find adoptive parents. We know there are many paths to have children and both of us have always thought adoption is a beautiful way. Our relationship shows us how blessed we are for our love for each other and our biggest dream is to be parents and give our child all of our love.

Our Leisure Time

We Love Concerts!

In our leisure time we enjoy doing many different kinds of things. We always love to spend time outdoors walking in our neighborhood or visiting a new place. We go to the beach in summer and spend time with family and friends to relax and disconnect from daily activities.

Geoffrey was a runner before he met Paloma and recently she started running too and now we enjoy that together. We ran our first 5K together earlier this year in freezing cold temperatures and loved every minute of it! We also practice yoga and exercise regularly.

We also love going to try new restaurants, visit museums, art and photography expositions (Paloma is a photographer as well), and going to see concerts.

We are regular travelers and enjoy to experience a new city near home or new country around the world. Our recent trips have included New York City, Buenos Aires, Paris, and Tuscany. We hope to visit Patagonia in the near future.

Sometimes we like to just relax at home. We watch movies, Netflix, and try new recipes to cook together. We love to have our special place at home where we just listen to good music, laugh, and have fun. We can't wait to share all of the things we love to do with our child!

Our Family Traditions

Christmas in Peru

We spend our Christmas in Peru with the biggest family celebration on Christmas Eve, as is tradition, with almost 40 people in the house of Paloma's parents full of decorations for a big dinner, playing games, singing songs, and a visit by Santa Claus for all the kids. In the summer, we travel often to the beach house with family and cousins nearby in the neighborhood with plenty more music, stories, laughing and games. We also have lots of family Sunday brunches as often as possible.

To celebrate birthdays we have some amazing chefs in the family (adults and kids) who love to make special cakes for each other. We love to travel and visit as many places as possible in our life. We take at least one big trip somewhere new every year and little weekend adventures as often as possible.

One of our favorite traditions is to leave little surprise notes for each other to say, "I love you," in hidden places around the house or on our family blackboard in the kitchen to welcome someone visiting us!

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Enjoying Life Together

Paloma About Geoffrey: There is not one day that I don't feel blessed to have Geoffrey in my life. Meeting him was the most special gift that life has given me. There are so many things I love about him. He's so sweet, loving, caring, supportive and has been there for me in all the difficult and special moments since we are together. One of the things that I love most is his family devotion and to know without a doubt that he will do anything for his family. Every time I see how sweet and dedicated he is with children I cannot stop to feel what an amazing parent he will be for our child, providing all the love, attention and support they will need.

Geoffrey About Paloma: Paloma is truly my dream come true and from the very first moment I met her I knew we were meant to be together. She has an unconditional love for me in every moment of life and the strongest love, caring, and support in her family which go together in the most beautiful way. She would do anything possible for the happiness of her nephews and I am blessed for the love she has with my son. When I imagine her with our child I am filled with images of smiles, knowing she will protect them without question, and love them more than anyone in the world. Paloma is the most caring person I have ever met and I am the luckiest man to be her husband.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Beautiful Street

We live in northern Virginia just minutes outside of Washington, D.C. in a beautiful historic village. Our neighborhood is full of families with lots of kids and pets, extremely friendly atmosphere and completely walkable to everything. Our community organizes events all year long including farmers markets, art expositions on the main street, holiday parades, and even dog shows! We have been welcomed so generously by all of our neighbors since moving here in January.

The neighborhood is so quiet and surrounded by beautiful trees, parks, and running trails. Everything is so close to our house we don't even need to use our car every day. We usually go to walk Bruno, our labrador, in one of many nearby dog parks, do some exercise or simply just relax and enjoy being outdoors close to the river with the other families.

While in a historic village, our house is only 10 years old with all the modern conveniences. It has 4 bedrooms, a large kitchen that we love to spend time at having fun experimenting how to prepare new dishes and also in the family room where we have the fireplace and we enjoy spending time together watching movies, TV or playing games with friends and family.

Our Extended Families

With Geoffrey's Son, Gavin

While we came from different cultural backgrounds, it was very easy for all of us to connect as one family. Our families share the values of respect, supporting each other, and love. Our families have embraced all that we have done together and we couldn't do it without them.

Geoffrey has an 11-year-old son, Gavin, who lives in Tennessee and is the sweetest kid that we love to spend time with. Geoffrey's mom and sister always spend time with him going to movies and doing special projects like painting pottery. Geoffrey’s mom and extended family live in NY and he has a sister in Atlanta. All love spending time with us for visits throughout the year and celebrating special moments.

Proud Aunt Paloma

Paloma comes from a large and especially close family in Peru. Her parents, two sisters, two nephews, and countless aunts, uncles, and cousins are truly one big extended family that spend summers together at the beach, every Christmas together, and all family occasions. They love to plan different activities together like Sunday brunch, weekend trips, and simply being together.

Both of our parents are very present in the life and caring of their grandchildren. It’s beautiful to see them planning activities together, participating in their special events, teaching the importance of family and being so sweet with them.

We feel blessed to have such a special family that support each other in everything and are looking forward to share all their love to our child!

From Us to You

We are extremely honored that you are reading our profile and want to thank you for the opportunity to tell you about us. Having a child is the biggest dream for our family and we will love, cherish and treasure forever this precious gift.

Even if we try, we know it's not possible for us to understand what you are going through. We can promise that if you choose us to adopt your child we will give all of our love every day, we will protect and nurture, and give your child the best life possible. We will teach them to respect your decision, love you for giving them life and for bringing us all together. We believe, just as how we met in Peru, that we are meeting you as part of the path for our lives.

As a couple, every day we feel blessed and are thankful for life bringing us together. In our three years together we both feel that our lives are filled with love, laughter, happiness, support, and adventure. We work to take care of our relationship every day, showing our love and compassion to each other, recognizing our mistakes, being able to forgive, and learning to improve ourselves and our relationship.

We have been wanting a child together since we met and every conversation about our family and future has always included a child as part of that. We know that no one can ever be fully prepared for life with a child but we believe that all of our life has prepared us for having a family. Every decision we make together thinks of our family to best provide a happy and loving home, a safe place to grow-up, and positive influences. We promise that every future decision that we take in our lives will have the best intentions and well-being of our child at the center of our hearts and we are always going to support our child in every way they could ever need.

Both of our jobs provide a lot of flexibility in the hours and days that we work allowing us to set our own schedules. This is an amazing benefit that gives us the opportunity to be fully present to care for our child.

We have a beautiful family that enjoys celebrating, having fun, and being there for each other in every possible way. We love to always have plans together throughout the year from every day visits with our nephews, Sunday brunches with all the family, holidays, birthdays, summer at the beach house and vacations. Our families are beyond excited to welcome our child with their love and support, to spoil them, and to be there in every moment of their life with unconditional devotion.

We welcome the opportunity for you to get to know us further. Please know that we are open to communication even if adoption is something that you're just considering. We would be honored if chosen to adopt your child and we want you to know that we are open to sharing photos, e-mails, and phone calls. We promise to ensure that the gratitude we feel for you is present in our lives every day. We will make sure that if you choose us to adopt your child they will always know how much you love them.

Words cannot express how special it will be for us to receive this precious gift from you. With open hearts we wait to talk with you,

Geoffrey & Paloma
