Taylor & Adriana
Hello, first we just want to say thank you for taking the time to look at our profile and considering us. We understand this may be a difficult process, but we want you to know that we are here for you 110%. Starting a family is something we have been working at for many years now and we are asking for your help in making this dream come true!
What Makes Us Unique
We are very well known in the outdoor industry when it comes to social media and advertisements. Aside from our regular jobs, we own and operate TAG Outdoors. We do photography and videography work for major outdoor brands such as; Bass Pro Shop, SHE Outdoor, RTIC Coolers, Sportsman Channel, Ducks Unlimited, Jackery Power, etc. We have also been featured in many outdoor magazines. We enjoy being outdoors as much as possible and by having cameras in our hands a majority of the time allows us to capture some pretty amazing moments while out and about.
We aren't real big about sharing our personal lives on social media, because we post more "work related" content. That being said, we are very social-able people. What you see is what you get with us. We don't lie and we don't sugar coat it. We stand behind the brands we use and they stand behind us. We've made some amazing contacts through the outdoor industry, which in turn has blessed us with some pretty amazing experiences. We were able to follow some friends along on their South Africa trip last year. They wanted it documented and made into a video series, so that's what we did! TAG Outdoors has been great, but we are also planning on taking a step back once we have a child in our lives!
When we aren't working, you will most likely find us doing something outside. We never have a dull moment!
In our hometown we have a beautiful lake called Lake Amistad with some of the most beautiful, crystal clear water. In the summer, you can find us at the lake fishing or floating on tubes down the San Felipe Creek. We love traveling and capturing every moment with our cameras.
During the fall and winter, we are pretty busy with hunting season. We photo and video other people's hunting experiences as part of TAG Outdoors and do some hunting ourselves when we can. We also capture and document parties such as weddings, quinceañera, sweet sixteen's, etc. We document almost everything we do to make our memories last a lifetime. We completely understand that not everyone agrees with hunting but this is something we enjoy doing and is a big part of who we are and how we live. For us, it's less about "hunting" and more about just being outdoors and enjoying life.
Our Family Traditions
Taylor grew up on their family farm in Arkansas. Twice a year all of Taylor's family meets at the farm—once in January to help run the Ducks Unlimited Banquet for Arkansas (which his family puts together), then again in May for a huge crawfish boil. We ride four wheelers and boats all around the farm just enjoying the day then we make a big bonfire at night for marshmallows and s'mores. We also have a nice little cabin on the property that sleeps 12 people, so it's always a great time being out on the farm.
Adriana grew up in a Mexican culture where family takes number one priority. Sunday evenings are always fun and we mean it when we say, Sunday Funday! We are either grilling out and playing games at her dad's house or we are on the boat playing on the lake. Adriana and her family also celebrate every holiday, Mexican and American. Celebrating together with family is the most important and sacred thing to do.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a small-ish (30,000 people) border town of Southwest Texas. Our home sits on one acre of land and is just a couple miles outside the city limits. We absolutely love the peace and quiet of not living in the city and being able to run to the store super quick if we need anything is really convenient.
Our home is has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an office and a huge backyard. Our neighbors also have an acre of land beside us and we spend a lot of weekends outside, grilling and enjoying the nice weather. Our neighbors are the same age as us and have three children.
We spend a lot of time on Lake Amistad and ride tubes down the many creeks that run through our town. Our area of Texas is an outdoor oasis and has been featured in many magazine and online articles. There are many outdoor activities that the community puts together every month. All the parks and creeks are open 24/7 for everyone to enjoy. We are big on being active and being outdoors, which is why we absolutely love our little corner of Texas.
Our Extended Families
Our family is very close and we spend most weekends together, whether it be Saturday's on the lake or Sunday's in the backyard grilling.
Adriana's family lives in the same town as us and we are always in contact with them. We love to be with our family and celebrate all American and Mexican holidays.
Taylor's family lives out of state but visits at least once a year and we go visit them as well.
We both have only one sibling and one niece.
One thing we love to do is take photos. We really enjoy capturing family fun and all our randomness with pictures to help make those memories last a lifetime.
We have an uncle and two first cousins that were adopted into our family. They have all grown up and led very successful lives. They now have families of their own and we see them every year. Our families are supportive of our decision to adopt and are excited to meet the next member of our family.
From Us to You
Thank you for taking the time to look through our profile and get to know us! We understand this is a very difficult and emotional time for you. It may be confusing while you try to figure out the best option for you and your baby. We want you to know that we support you no matter where you are in this process and we are here for you. We admire you and your courage for considering adoption!
We have been trying to conceive for four years now, but with no luck. We have seen several different doctors and they have all assured us that we are both healthy and able to conceive. Over the years, we have tried pregnancy enhancing medicines to help our chances, tracked our ovulation cycle to make the best of our timing, and watched all nutrients we put into our bodies, but still negative results. We also tried implantation last year and really got our hopes up, but again no luck. We believe that everything happens for a reason and we know in our hearts that when the time is right God will bless us. Meanwhile, we would like to start our little family and fill a child's life full of joy and happiness. We promise you that your child will be loved with all our heart and soul, as there is nothing we want more than to be parents.
Adriana About Taylor: Taylor is a very positive and outgoing person. You will never have a dull moment around him because he's also silly. I can guarantee he will make you laugh. He absolutely loves being outdoors and capturing beautiful moments though pictures and videos. When the day comes I know he will be an excellent, loving father! Your child will be filled with love, joy and laughter.
Taylor About Adriana: Adriana is the most caring and loving person I have ever met. She puts everyone else's needs before her own. I have never felt so genuinely loved and cared for by anyone in my life. Adriana is her true self 100% of the time and what you see is what you get. She is always upbeat and happy. I love that she is drama free and avoids all negativity. She loves telling corny jokes and her laughter is so contagious, like I'm smiling right now as I type this because I'm imaging her beautiful face laughing. She is the total package and I cannot wait to watch her raise a child with that beautiful heart of hers!
If you decide on an adoption plan, we want to assure you that we will respect you and whatever level of openness and contact that you want for you and your child. We are an open book and we always discuss everything together. Adoption is something that we have talked about for almost a full year now and we couldn't be more excited to start this process! Adriana will even become a stay-at-home mom once we bring a child into our home. Creating a little family is something we've been trying to do for so long now and it's starting to finally feel real, like a dream come true!
Know that we are here for you and your precious baby throughout your pregnancy and we will be praying that God fill you with peace and comfort with whatever decisions and situations that may come your way. We also want you to know that we will forever be indebted to you if you choose to accept us in raising and loving your baby. We promise to show this little baby the whole world. We want to make sure this baby lives his or her best life and you have our word on that! There will be nothing we won't do to protect, defend, care for, and love this child like it was our only mission on this beautiful earth.
