Andrew & Eve

Hello! Bonjour! Hola! We are Andrew and Eve! An uncommon military couple, that lives life in different languages, considers home where we are together, and believe that everything happens for a reason. We dream of building a family together and we thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. Keep reading, we think you'll like us!

Why We Chose Adoption

Andrew & AJ at Disney

We chose adoption because building a family is one of our strongest desires. Since we have been together, early in the relationship, we have discussed building a family together. Although we do not have any children together, Andrew has two children; AJ and Esteban. AJ is 12-years-old and lives in Texas with his mother. He loves basketball and playing golf. Esteban is 8-years-old and lives in North Carolina with his mother. Esteban is an avid swimmer.

We have tried to conceive for a while and we tried fertility treatments without being successful. Despite the heartache of being unable to conceive, the desire to be parents and have a family together remains very strong. Adoption will allow us to fulfill this dream and finally have a family of our own. We are very excited to pursue this process and meet our future child!

Our Lifestyle

Out to Dinner

We both have a very busy work schedule, but we love making time to have fun together. We like to eat well and stay fit. We enjoy working out together and even competing a little cycling. We go out to have a nice meal or watch a movie.

Our dogs keep us busy as well, we enjoy walks on trails or on the beach with them and playing in the yard with them.

Eve likes to play the drums now for 3 years and has been working on some CCR tracks, which are a lot of fun. She also sews, and has started to work on some baby pieces which she is enjoying very much. She is very creative and enjoys making jewelry or revamping an old piece of furniture into something great!

Andrew is a fit fanatic, he spends a lot of time running, cycling and working out. From cross fit to team sport, he is good at pretty much anything when it comes to sports. It's crucial for his job as a Marine to be in the best shape possible and it's an integral part of our life. He is a Dallas Cowboys fan, and doesn't miss a game. He loves watching a good action movie.

Our Life Priorities

We are coming to end of a chapter with Andrew's retirement from the Marine Corps coming in a few years. For us, this means settling down somewhere we chose to and not imposed by orders, somewhere that we like and had the time to pick, decorate and make it our own (not just for a year or two). A place we know we will be happy there with everything that we need to build our family. This could be in Texas to be closer to Andrew's family or California where we still own a house that we love.

That also means a change of pace, more time to spend together and a stronger focus on family instead of career. That means more time to laugh, love and be happy. More time to do things together, take care of one another, and grow together as a family.

We are excited for this new chapter, for a child to come in our lives and for us to focus our time and energy on our family.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We currently live in a neighborhood surrounded by children. There is a community pool, tennis and basketball courts, and inside and outside play areas for kids. The house we are renting has five bedrooms and lots of space to play, including a nice backyard with lots of trees. The baby will have her/his private room.

The families in our neighborhood come from everywhere and are mostly military. They understand the lifestyle and are very supportive of one another. They are quick to offer help and kids get together through the Facebook community group that organizes activities.

Once Andrew retires from the military, the choice of our permanent residence will be based on the community. We will be looking for a place that has a great sense of community, with families that have kids, great schools nearby and lots of things to do as a family.

Our Extended Families

Family

We have been moving quite a lot in the last four years. We create memories with our family and cherish the time we get to spend with them when they visit us.

Andrew's oldest son, AJ, came to visit us last summer and we surprised him with a trip to Disney. We had a blast together!

Eve's family came down to visit us for her dad's 75th birthday. Eve's brother, nieces and nephews were there for a week of activities: hiking, fishing, and way too much eating!

Winery Visit With Eve's Mom

Despite the distance, we are a tight family that speaks on the phone every week. We are hoping to get closer to them when Andrew retires from the Marine Corps in 2-3 years.

Our parents and brothers are very supportive of our adoption plans. They have seen us trying to build a family through fertility and were extremely supportive. Adoption seems the best options in their eyes as long as we are happy and can have a family of our own, that's what matters to them.

From Us to You

We met in Dubai almost five years ago now. It was no coincidence. While Andrew was deployed there for a limited time, Eve had been spending a decade working there. We were both looking to meet someone but nothing serious, just someone with similar interests we could spend time with. We both got caught by surprise, it felt like we knew each other for a long time, so natural and comfortable. Love that is. We spent every moment possible together knowing that Andrew would leave back to the U.S. Life took charge of keeping us together, Eve had a offer to transfer to the U.S. and next thing you know, we were reunited, Andrew proposed and we got married. You can say it felt like it was meant to be. Life was giving us such a great gift to be able to continue our love story.

We don't know if you believe that life has a plan of its own.

We do believe it even more today. After going through infertility treatments, Eve's heart was broken. She was never be able to conceive, and would never know what it is to carry a child, bonding and delivering life. It was hard to accept. But, life has a plan for us. And that we are meant to cross paths. You are reading this now, considering us to become parents of your child. That's no coincidence.

Our desire is greater and stronger than ever to build a family. The process is not easy, probably even harder for you. It's hard to put words and explain how strong those feelings are that keeps us going, when imagining this little baby in our arms, the memories we will build together, the willingness to give ourselves unconditionally for that little person, and how grateful we are that you are considering us.

We want to give this child the best life possible, options to chose from, a stable environment where he or she can strive and grow, and a big and tight family. We will give this child unconditional love and support. We have no doubt we can provide all of this and more.

We want our child to grow knowing that there is a special person(s) that gave us the gift of life, that made our family possible. An angel(s). We want our child to know you, for the amazing selfless and generous being(s) that you are. We will be forever grateful.

We want this relationship to be based on honesty and respect. We want to share moments with you, celebrate achievements, send you drawings, pictures and letters or emails. We are happy with the occasional phone calls. More importantly, we want to build a relationship were we both feel comfortable and have a great understanding of each other's needs and boundaries. If this is not what you want, we will respect this. If you change your mind, we will be there to talk this through.

Eve has started to write to our child to tell this story in a book called I Wish for You. This is a great story, with lots of emotions and amazing people that is making this family possible.

We are so excited for this story, and feel it was meant to be. We believe that!
