Hello! Thank you for taking the time to learn about us.
We are a fun, active, family-oriented couple from New Mexico and have been married for 10 years. We have always known adoption would be part of our family yet, not long after starting our adoption journey, we were surprised to learn that we are pregnant and expecting our first child in September! We are overjoyed to have the opportunity to be on this path of adoption to expand our family and share our love with your child. We promise to raise your child in a faith-centered, supportive, and loving family where they will be loved unconditionally and given opportunities to succeed and flourish. We look forward to going on family trips, exploring nature, and engaging in family traditions. We are excitedly ready and are waiting with our hearts open to make that connection with you.
A Little Bit About Us!
We met in college, dated for almost a year, and then married six months later. We love spending quality time with each other outdoors, fishing, taking walks with the dogs, trying new restaurants, traveling, and watching movies. Spending time together allows us to have quality conversations and strengthening our bond and closeness. Even with our own child on their way in September, we have always known adoption would be part of our family and are excited to welcome your child into our lives! We are ready to have our house be filled with toys, laughter, and new traditions. We look forward to attending the Balloon Fiesta, building forts out of blankets, cooking/baking our traditional dishes like tamales and tortillas, and enjoying cozy afternoons as a family.
Matt is a faithful Christian man, who has a great work ethic, is loyal, reliable, and trustworthy. His humor is contagious, he loves to surprise others with gifts, is a good provider and a great friend. He always wants to be outdoors and is always up for a spontaneous adventure. Matt loves to work on gadgets, fish, and hunt. Matt is a bank manager and has been in his profession for 15 years. Not only is he a good leader, but he is a compassionate and loving uncle (often called tio primo). Matt is looking forward to teaching our children how to respect and enjoy nature, play sports, fish, and build a close bond with them. I am looking forward to seeing him flourish and become the amazing father I know he will be.
Ambyre is a person who genuinely cares about and loves others. She is very strong in her opinions and faith and stands up for what she believes in. Ambyre is a hard-working graphic designer and is highly sought after in her field. She enjoys photography, baking/cooking new dishes, dancing, watching documentaries, and spending quality time with her friends and family. She is looking forward to sharing our faith in the Lord, culture, traditions, and family values with our children. She wants to teach them how to make traditional baked goods such as biscochitos and pastelitos like her mom and grandmother taught her. I know she will make a wonderful mother.
Our Home in New Mexico
We purchased Ambyre’s grandparent’s fully renovated home from her family and have since made it our own. We added on to the house and changed up the front and back yard. Our home is often filled with family for dinners and gatherings. Our home is cozy and welcoming, with three bedrooms and plenty of space for our family to grow. We have a vacant room close to ours that we have set aside for the nursery. We live in an established, quiet, older neighborhood filled with diverse families. We are surrounded by parks, walking trails, restaurants, and good schools. In addition, we have two dogs (10 years old) that we love dearly.
Both of our families live in New Mexico, Ambyre’s parents live close to us and are retired and Matt’s parents are about four hours away. Ambyre is an only child, but her parents have raised her 15-year-old twin cousins since they were two; they are as close to her as brothers. Matt has two sisters and two brothers and together we have three nephews and a niece. We always make trips to visit Matt’s parents and often they come down to visit us. Our niece & nephews live in TX and NM, we enjoy the opportunities we have when they visit. Every Sunday we have dinner at Ambyre’s parent’s house and we often spend time with them. Everyone from our families are extremely excited for us to become parents and are on this journey along with us.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests
We enjoy fishing and spending time outdoors. Matt hunts, while Ambyre will hike and photograph nature. We love to walk the dogs, take them on rides in the car to get shakes. We love to ride our vintage bicycles in the neighborhood, bowl, play card games, travel, watch Netflix and relax, and just spend time together. We are goofy and sometimes make up our own songs when we are cooking and sing to the dogs. We love to dance in the kitchen and enjoy eating dinner outside on the porch when the weather is nice. Ambyre likes to cook new things and bake yummy goodies. She also loves to dance, especially to Salsa music, crafting, baking and cooking new recipes she finds on Pinterest, painting, and sewing. She enjoys doing her own acrylic nails, customizing wigs, organizing her closet, and doing DIY projects. Matt loves to fix little gadgets and enjoys working on his fishing poles, updating the four-wheeler and his truck. Matt also enjoys nature and is always wanting to fish, hunt, hike, and drive around NM to places we have not been before.
We are both Born Again Christians. We attend a pretty large Non-Denomination church. We keep the Lord at the center of our marriage. We always are aware that He directs our path and has our future in his hands. We pray together every day, and we read the Word. We attend church weekly and plan on teaching our children about the Lord and sharing our faith. We will enroll our children in our Church's children's program and help them to follow His way. We want to be an example to our children of the Lord's love and compassion.
Our Musical Interest
We have similar and yet very different musical interests. Ambyre likes Salsa, Reggaeton, Blues, House Mix, Hip Hop, R&B, Reggae, Classic & Alternative Rock, Oldies, Soul, and Pop Country. Matthew likes Country, Hip Hop, Oldies, Reggaeton, Classic Rock, and some Alternative. Music is always playing in our home.
About Our Home & Dogs
Our home is cozy and welcoming, with three bedrooms and plenty of space for our family to grow. We live in an established, quiet, older neighborhood filled with diverse families. We live within walking distance to parks, schools, restaurants, and the Bosque. Our backyard has synthetic grass and plenty of space to play. We have neighborhood peacocks that roam the neighborhood, and always bring joy to the kiddos.
We got our dogs when we first married, 10 years ago. They love people and children and always want to be in the mix. They are loving, calm, and friendly. They enjoy barking at the peacocks in the morning, relaxing, eating their favorite snacks, going on rides in the vehicle, and LOVE going on walks to the park which is one block away.
We promise that your child will be loved, cherished, and be well taken care of. We believe keeping God at the center of our lives establishes a strong foundation and we will always let your child know that he/she is a blessing to our family and loved and watched over by God. Faith and education are key and we will always be supportive of your child. We look forward to spending quality time with them, taking them fishing, visiting out-of-town family, traveling, riding bicycles, doing arts and crafts, baking, and playing sports/games. We promise to stay united in our marriage, love one another, and be great examples to your child. We promise to be open with your child about their story and always speak highly of you and the love you have for your child.
