Hello! We are Steve & Maria, and we would love to invite you into our lives. We are a couple who has traveled the world, thrown birthday parties for our pups, and who can be found whipping up pancakes and Huevos Rancheros on weekend mornings, or sometimes in Costa Rica visiting family in our vacation home. Adoption has always been part of our life plan. Maria’s brother was adopted and our whole family is excitedly waiting with unconditional love and a lifetime of BIG family memories ahead. There is nothing we would love more than to welcome a child into our life, to travel as a family, plan special theme parties for his or her birthday, and to giggle in the kitchen while we lovingly prepare whatever his or her favorite food is! We hope you will turn the page to learn more about us–and if it is your wish when you are done- we would love to hear more about your hopes for the future.
