A Letter from Guillermo & Jessica

Gracias por tomar el tiempo para leer esta carta y considerarnos como familia para tu hijo o hija.  La adopción siempre ha sido parte principal de nuestro plan de familia y llevamos años esperando con anticipación para que llegue este momento.  Somos una family bilingue que es activa.  Nos encanta jugar afuera, viajar, bromear, y  jugar deportes juntos.  

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at our website and consider us for your child. Adoption has always been a part of our plan as a family, and we are waiting with excitement for that time to come. We are an active, bilingual family of four who loves to play outdoors, travel, joke around, and play sports together. We are thrilled to grow our family and welcome another child. 

Our Story Starts Here

Guillermo, of Mexico, and Jessica, from Colorado, met in Pamplona, Spain at the Running of the Bulls. We were both visiting friends there. We stayed in touch until Jessica convinced Guillermo that her local college was the best English school around. It wasn’t long after, Guillermo moved to Colorado and that’s how it all began.

We’ve been married for over 20 years now and have two amazing boys. Humor and laughter are a huge part of our life, as is our faith.  We enjoy playing outdoors, especially skiing and hiking with our German Shepard, Kuna. We are huge soccer fans, especially of Mexican teams! We look forward to sharing all of this, as well as our love of singing, listening to music, and spending time with our families, with another child. Above all, we are excited to share our love of different cultures and languages with our next child.

Meet Guillermo

According to Jessica: Family is the most important thing in life for Guillermo, and being a father is, by far, his most important accomplishment. He enjoys playing and watching soccer, especially his favorite team Las Chivas de Guadalajara, and is always so excited to share stats with our boys. Playing and joking around with our kids is one of his favorite past times. He also enjoys riding his motorcycle, scuba diving, traveling, and exploring new places.  His family in Mexico is incredibly important to him, as well, which is why he talks daily with them, and he so looks forward to sharing his love of his country and language with another child!

Meet Jessica

According to Guillermo: Jessica loves children! If she could, she would spend all of her time with them, which is why she chose to become a teacher. She is also very passionate about bilingual education, equity, and about helping families to be proud of their native culture and language. She is an avid runner and loves being outdoors. She is the family planner of vacations and outings, whether near the house, in the mountains, or someplace new (such as caves in Mexico). Above all, it is obvious that she loves being a mother and sharing her time, loves, and interests with our children. She always looks forward to having the summers off with the boys, taking them to soccer practices, traveling with them to Mexico, or visiting her family’s lake house in New York. She is thrilled to do all of this with our next child as well!

Meet Our Kids

Giancarlo is an active 16-year-old who loves music, dogs, and spending time with his friends. He is very proud of his Mexican heritage and loves “real” Mexican food. Soccer is his passion, and his biggest desire is to become a professional soccer player and play for a team in Mexico. He has a great sense of humor and is always joking around; he also has a huge heart and is always thinking about others. He is thrilled to become a big brother!

Alessandro is a well-rounded 18-year-old. He loves animals, especially our dog, Kuna. He enjoys and is good at basketball, running, and soccer. He is proud to be bilingual and biliterate, enjoys learning, and is thinking about being an engineer. He has a great sense of humor, a huge imagination, and loves to goof around with family. He is a great older brother and looks forward to spending time with his new sibling.

Our Family

When we say family is very important to us, we mean our parents, brothers, sisters and their families as well. We are very blessed to both have very supportive families that we talk to and see frequently and that we love very much. We are excited to pass our love for family on to our children.

Our Home in Colorado

Our home is in a great neighborhood in a small city near the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains. It has a spacious yard and a park at the end of the street. We love to run around with our four-year-old “puppy,” Kuna, sit outside for barbecues, and relax next to our new fire pit. The elementary, middle and high schools are all within walking or biking distance, and there are several small stores and restaurants that we use as an excuse to get out and walk.  The best things about our home, though, include the many trails right outside our door, the school just out back where we play basketball or soccer, and the coffee shop nearby that we love to frequent.

Our Promise

We promise that your child will be loved dearly. We will do our very best as parents and will teach your child to be an empathetic, compassionate individual. We will be an example of God’s love, and provide them with the safety, security, and encouragement needed to become the best version of themselves. We will encourage them to follow their dreams, follow their heart and to know their story. We promise they will grow up knowing their story and knowing you. We look forward to maintaining open communication with you, should you desire.

We’d love to talk or answer any of your questions. Please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

More About Our Family
A typical weekend with us...

Weekends are for spending time with family...
--Often this means jumping into the car, driving to a soccer game or two and standing on the sidelines cheering; sometimes we face unpredictable weather, but we always enjoying every moment of participating in our children's lives.
--Watching a new favorite series or movie together.
--Visiting with Jessica's extended family.
--Eating breakfast together and chatting.

Our Faith

We are a family that is centered in our faith in God, and we try to live out that faith through our actions. We believe it is the way that we treat others and lead our own lives that will show others what God's love truly is. Our greatest success as parents is seeing our children grow in their faith and show a love for others and a desire to help their friends, through asking mom to make an extra sandwich for a friend who struggles with a healthy lunch and asking for advice about how to help a friend who is struggling to make good decisions.

Why we are adopting

--We are positive that there is a mother and child out there that God has chosen for us.
--It has not been an easy journey, but it is something God has pressed upon our hearts to do.
--Family is not bound by blood. We have SO much love to give another child, as well as all of the experiences, and more, that we were able to offer our biological children.
--Having raised children to adulthood (or almost) has only strengthened our desire to parent again.

En pocas palabras...

Sabemos que la mayoría del contenido aquí está en inglés pero uno de nuestros grandes deseos es poder compartir la cultura y lenguaje del español con nuestro/a hijo/a adoptado/a, especialmente si su mamá biológica (o padres) también habla español. ¡Esperamos con todo el corazón que nos escoja a nosotros!
