A Letter from Brian & Massiel

We enjoy the outdoors, prayer, playing games, and traveling to learn more about different cultures, traditions, and ways of life.   We are so delighted that you found our profile and look forward to getting to know you and your hopes for your child’s future.

About Us

We have been happily married for ten wonderful years. When we first met, we felt an instant connection that was sparked by our love and faith in God. Every date included praying the rosary together and, if it was a Sunday, attending Mass as well. Christ has been a central part of our lives and the core of our marriage. We are dedicated to serving the Church in different ways, from working in Catholic education to volunteering at our parish. 

We value spending time with family and friends, whether it is to gather at home for a meal or to go out for an adventure.  We cherish the opportunities to travel to different parts of the world to explore new cultures, foods, and beautiful scenery. There is nothing like the experience of learning about the lifestyles of other people and the beauty and history of the world around us and we are excited to share that passion with your child. 

About Massiel

Massielis a kind, smart, thoughtful, devoted, faithful, and beautiful woman of God. She is supportive and encouraging and is always looking to help others who are in need. She likes to help at the church and dedicates time to prayer and reading the Bible. She enjoys life and likes to have fun through traveling to new locations and hosting dinner parties for family and friends.

She has taught over ten years in preschool and has shown a passion for teaching young children. She believes young people should learn through fun activities, such as painting, cooking, dancing, and singing. She also believes in encouraging creativity and using one’s imagination through role-playing and playing games. She looks forward to reading stories with your child and helping him/her develop a love for reading. She will be truly an amazing mother who will unconditionally love and care for our son or daughter. 

About Brian

Since the moment I got to know Brian, I fell in love with him for the faith he has in God and Blessed Mary, love for family, and a good sense of humor. He is very smart and clever and likes to figure out things on his own. He is a principal at a local Catholic high school and enjoys working in the field of Catholic education. He enjoys spending time with my nieces playing hide-and-seek, tag, and other fun games.  He loves grilling on his BBQ and rooting for his favorite teams. Brian enjoys good meals and cooking for me and our family and friends. He looks forward to teaching our child how to pray, play sports, and enjoy the simple things in life. He is a wonderful and supportive husband and will be a dedicated, supportive, and loving father to your child.

Our Family

Family is very important to us! Massiel has two sisters that live in the same county, one of whom is married and has two adorable nieces (ages 8 & 6). There are also a number of relatives that live very close.  Brian’s family is also in California (but they are a little further away) and usually spend time with them a few times during the year. Our family has been extremely happy and supportive of our desire to adopt. Your child will be welcomed with open arms into our extended family and they are all so excited to include them in our family gatherings! 

Our Home in Ohio

We live in a cozy three-bedroom home with a backyard patio and garden. We love to spend time outside and enjoy our outdoor patio for dining and relaxing. We also have a prayer room that is dedicated to God where we spend time daily. We have converted our guest room into a nursery complete with comfortable furnishings, toys, and stuffed animals for our son or daughter. We look forward to decorating it with their interests as they grow.

Our quaint town is family-friendly, has many parks and activities for children, and is a safe place for your child to make friends and go to school. 

Our Promise

We are wholeheartedly committed to raising your child in a loving and nurturing environment. Our emphasis will be on growing in faith, education, moral values, connecting with extended family, and creating lasting memories filled with fun family adventures. We will raise him/her to be a loving individual who knows right from wrong. We are open to sending you updates regularly through letters and photos. We are also open to scheduling visits for you as well!

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests

We love to travel to different parts of the world, immersing ourselves in the culture, traditions, and food. We learn so much about ourselves and others by experiencing the different ways people live, work, and enjoy life. Our favorite memories are derived from our travels.
We enjoy spending time with our family, especially taking care of our two nieces. Through playing games, reading books, coloring, cooking lessons, and helping with homework, we do our best to help them develop good habits while having fun.
We like to spend time going out to try restaurants, walking in our scenic neighborhood, hiking in the local mountains, enjoying a movie in a theater, attending concerts and musicals together, and taking scenic drives.

Our Faith

We are faithful Catholics who actively participate and attend Mass in our local parish. Brian is the principal of a Catholic High School, has taught Theology, and is a lector (reader) at Sunday Masses. Massiel teaches CCD and has volunteered on different committees at the parish.
Faith is at the heart of our marriage and it is God who strengthens and sustains us in our loving relationship.
Prayer is a very important part of our lives. We have a room dedicated to prayer with a small altar where we pray every day. We are devoted to praying the rosary together daily, a prayer devotion that strengthens us in our faith and sustains us in our marriage.

About Our Home

We live in a three-bedroom home with one room that is specifically set aside for your child. The home is kept clean and includes an outdoor area with grass, a garden, and a patio. We will always have a supply of games, puzzles, crayons, building materials, and educational toys for your child.

Our Town

There are a number of family-friendly parks, playgrounds, and pools available for recreation as well as a beautiful natural setting that includes the beach, a lake, and mountains all within 20 minutes of our home. Our town also hosts family-friendly activities and festivals that take place on a regular basis. There are many kid-friendly activities within a 45-minute driving distance of our home as well, such as a zoo, an aquarium, a water park, a carousel, and an interactive children’s science museum.
