Alex & Bianca
We are so grateful that you are viewing our profile and for considering us to be your child's adoptive parents. We have an abundance of love to share with a child, and regardless of what they do or who they become, they will always have our love and support. We would love to get to know you and for you to have as much contact as you'd like with your child.
Our Life Priorities
We were raised with kindness, patience, and generosity, and we look forward to showering a child in that kind of love and more. Relationships are so important to us, and we can't wait to get to know this child and watch them be welcomed into our family and friend group. We believe that life is all about building relationships - whether with friends, family, or even strangers - that connection is what it's all about. We love spending quality time together with each other and with friends and family, and we try to appreciate the little moments and value the time that we have together. We believe that staying kind, treasuring the small moments in life, and being grateful for what we have makes life worthwhile.
We are continually working on improving ourselves and having a healthier outlook to life, and lately we have been trying to live more simply and not get caught up in the stress and worries of life. We generally try to be thankful for what we do have rather than focusing on what we don't.
We love to travel and explore when we have time off from work. We are excited to show our child the wonders of nature and explore the outdoors together, whether that's in our own backyard or taking road trips around the USA.
On a regular weekend, we love spending time outdoors and doing projects to improve our house, then winding down in the evening by watching a movie and cuddling on the couch with our cats, Petrie and Cora. Petrie and Cora are a brother and sister from a litter of kittens we fostered from the animal shelter two years ago. They are playful, friendly, cuddly, and they make us laugh every day. They are a part of our family and we can't imagine life without them anymore! Alex's family had dogs when she was a child, so we would love to have a dog someday as well when a child is a little bit older. We love all types of animals and if this child is interested in having a random animal as a pet, chances are that we would be excited to make that happen!
Individually, Bianca is especially excited to share the joy of kicking a soccer ball around and Alex can't wait to share her love of reading with a little one.
Our Cultural Heritage
Bianca is Mexican-American. She was born in Texas, but her dad was born in Mexico and her mom grew up on the border. Bianca fondly remembers going to visit her extended family as a child - making tamales, going to church, and playing with cousins. Bianca grew up speaking Spanish and English, and we plan to be a bilingual family. Alex understands most of what they are saying, but she is still working on her vocabulary and accent!
Alex's family has been in Texas for many generations, but ancestry tests say they came from Ireland and England. No matter the cultural heritage of your child, we will incorporate aspects of their own heritage in their life and into ours as well.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a 3-bedroom home in Austin, Texas that we bought in May of 2020. Since then, we have slowly been transforming it into our dream home, and we plan to live here for many years to come. Our house has a huge front yard and a backyard with a lot of very tall trees - we imagine putting up a swing and building a treehouse for a child to have adventures in.
We love our neighborhood - it is full of green space and parks, and there are many playgrounds nearby. There is a community pool within walking distance of our house. It has a shallow area for a young child to play in, and a big slide for when they get older - great for our hot Texas summers! When we bought our house we also checked school districts and chose a highly-rated district. The elementary school is close enough to walk or ride a bike to.
In our neighborhood, we have never met an unfriendly neighbor. We frequently see people walking their dogs, pushing their babies in strollers, and children riding their bikes. Numerous families with young children live in the neighborhood, and new young couples are moving in, so there will be plenty of neighborhood friends for a child here. We even chose a house on a cul-de-sac so that it would be safe for a child to play in the front yard since there is no traffic on our street!
Our Extended Families
Family is extremely important to us, and we are so excited to welcome your child into ours! We love getting together to share a meal, play games, or ride bikes.
Bianca is especially close to her paternal grandmother, who lives 20 minutes from us. She is a spiritual, independent woman who showers those she loves with affection in the form of prayers, food, and hugs. Bianca's dad lives about an hour away but stays every weekend with his mother. He is a quiet, caring, patient father. Bianca's younger brother (a senior in high school) likes visiting our house to play with our cats and show us his newest video games. He will love playing with his niece or nephew!
Alex's mom lives about 3 hours away, but she is excited beyond measure to become a grandma and she plans to visit frequently. She wants to take her grandchild swimming at the pool, play with them on the playground, and drive them around the neighborhood in her golf cart. Alex's dad is remarried and splits his time between Texas and a home in the mountains of Colorado. He is a wonderful grandfather to his two granddaughters by marriage, and he can't wait to show his new grandchild the best hikes and take them skiing for the first time. Alex has a brother close in age who lives in Seattle, where he works and plays guitar when he isn't skiing or rock climbing. We visit him as often as we can.
From Us to You
Thank you so much for taking the time to read through our profile. We cannot imagine what you're going through, but we think that you're incredibly brave for being here. We appreciate that you would even consider us to be the parents of your child.
We met in nursing school, where we were first classmates, then study buddies, then friends, and the rest is history. We have been inseparable since we graduated nursing school, which was almost 6 years ago. We got married in the middle of the pandemic and we will celebrate our 3-year wedding anniversary this year. We have always known that we wanted to have a family together and we are thrilled to begin this new chapter of our life and start the biggest adventure we'll ever have - being parents!
We have always been surrounded by children and have enjoyed their presence in our lives. Alex started babysitting in high school and was a nanny for three years before she went back to school for nursing. She now works as a nurse in the neonatal intensive care unit (newborn ICU), and she loves getting to care for the babies in the hospital. Bianca grew up with a little brother who was born when she was in middle school, then in high school she worked as a soccer referee and coach for young kids at the YMCA. Bianca now works at a heart hospital as an operating room nurse, although she would like to find a job working from home in the future. Once we have a family, Alex plans to work part time (once per week) to be able to stay home with our child.
Alex has wanted to be a mom from the time that she first held a baby doll, and has wanted to adopt since she first learned what it meant. Bianca has always loved showing kids how fun life can be and enjoys teaching them and learning from them at the same time. We have always known that we wanted to have children someday, and when we started talking about how that would happen, adoption was always a part of the conversation. We researched our options extensively and know that adoption is the only way that we want to have a family.
We hope that you will feel comfortable to be involved as much in this child's life as you want to be. We would love for him or her to know you as their birthmom, their first mom, and the one who made it possible for us to be mothers too. We have always known that adoption was how we wanted to build a family, so to us, that has always meant welcoming a child's birthmother into our family as well. We will always be here if you need support, encouragement, or someone to talk to. We will send you letters and pictures as your child grows up, and we would also love to keep in touch however else you prefer - whether that is through texting, emails, phone calls, video calls, regular visits, or all of those! No matter what kind of contact you choose, know that we will always honor your choice and your child will always hear us talk about you only with respect.
Wherever you are in your journey, we hope that you find a path that gives you peace.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to become a family.
Alex & Bianca
