A Letter from Gabriel & Paula

Dear Birthmother,

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We are so excited to grow our family through the blessing of adoption. We look forward to sharing our love of the great outdoors, family and travel with our next child.

We will provide a loving and supportive home to your child and look forward to getting to know you!

Our Story

We met and “just clicked”. It is one of those meetings that just happen naturally.

We both love the outdoors, whether it’s bike riding, kayaking or going for long walks. We also love to travel to new places and see different parts of the country. Our happy place is home though, we love nothing more than coming home and watching a good movie, cooking and sharing our day with one another.

We look forward to growing our family through the blessing of adoption and providing your child with a loving, supportive and adventurous family. We are excited to travel as a family and enjoy the outdoors as often as possible.

About Gabriel

Gabriel is a loving, young at heart individual. He enjoys his career as a contractor and he is great at what he does. He knows how to cook some amazing arepas and does a great job on the grill. He is my husband, best friend and a wonderful father to our children. Gabriel enjoys riding his mountain bike, swimming, playing basketball and going for long runs.  He always finds home improvement projects to get into and loves working with his hands. Gabriel’s father is a pastor, so he was brought up in the church and plans to teach our next child the bible and raise them in a Christ-centered home with the support of our extended church family.

 

About Paula

Paula has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met. She gives love, grace, and forgiveness like nobody I have ever seen. She is a nurturer by nature and it truly shows in her work. As a nurse, she tends to people around her all day every day. Paula loves to be outdoors, kayaking, riding bikes or going for walks. She also loves to travel and do fun community events on the weekends. Paula has had adoption on her heart for many years and she feels God has placed a calling on her life to have a child through adoption. She is excited and anticipating the opportunity to love and nurture another child. She is excited to share her love of the great outdoors and I know she will teach your child to be patient, forgiving and to love others.

Our Children and Extended Family

We have a lot of our family close by that we enjoy spending time with on the weekends. Our home is a place where our family gathers for all sorts of events- from holidays to birthdays and gathering. We especially love having our nieces and nephews over!

We also have our two children; Arianna who is 19 years old and Isaac who is 14 years old. Arianna is a soccer lover and has been playing soccer for the city and her school for 14 years, even into her first year of college.  Isaac is a part of the local Navy Cadet program and has been since he was 9 years old. He also enjoys playing lacrosse and basketball. Both of our children are excited to welcome home a new sibling!

Our Home in Florida

We live in a 4-bedroom home with a large swimming pool in a family-oriented neighborhood in the suburban area. We have many parks and schools within walking distance of our home. The community has lush landscaping, trees everywhere and the sunsets are truly beautiful. We have the nursery already picked out and are excited to finish it! Decorating it has become a family project.

Our Promise

We truly feel God has placed it on both of our hearts to grow our family through adoption. We promise to provide a loving home. We also promise to love your child and provide them with every opportunity to succeed. We will encourage them to be the best in all that they do. We will raise your child in a Christian home with emotional and financial support. We promise to honor you and make sure your baby knows how much you love them.

We promise to stay in communication and provide updates through pictures, letters, and visits. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests

We love traveling 2-3 times per year. Last year we went to the Bahamas, Punta Cana, Tennessee, and Alabama. When we are not traveling, we are usually outdoors either biking, kayaking or walking in the parks close to home. We go to our Community Church on Sundays and enjoy Sunday brunch with our family.

Our Faith

We are both Christians. With Gabe's father being a pastor, he grew up in the church and was a youth pastor himself. We spend Sundays going to church or listening to a sermon together at home before beginning our day. We also pray together and believe strongly in Christ.

Our Musical Interest

We love Christian music.
