A Letter from Ruiky & Stephanie
Thank you for taking the time to let us tell you a bit about ourselves. We are a financially stable, bilingual, Christian couple looking to share our love and life with your child. We are beyond excited to adopt our first child or children of any race or gender! We are open to letters, pictures, and visits as you would like.
We met twelve years ago, working together at a local restaurant. After two years of dating, we were married in a church ceremony with all our family and friends. While conceiving hasn’t been successful for us, we feel led by the Lord to pursue adoption rather than fertility treatments.
Our free time consists of visiting family, working around the house, and playing with our dog, Sissy. We enjoy snow skiing, traveling, attending sporting events, movies, and swimming! We look forward to planning our annual vacation with your child and creating new memories as a family. We attend church each week and love to worship the Lord together and are excited to bring your child with us to learn about Jesus. We schedule a date night each weekend and love to try new restaurants and different events around town.
Ruiky is a wonderful husband and such a blessing in my life. He has an amazing smile and an infectious laugh. He loves to sing while he works and especially loves to do karaoke at family fiestas while everyone enjoys dancing along. Ruiky’s a big soccer fan, watching or playing, he rarely passes up an opportunity for a game!
He has a strong passion for working hard and having fun. He completed his schooling and also became a US citizen by years of hard work and dedication. Ruiky is looking forward to teaching our child how to play soccer, ride a bike, and to speak Spanish. He will be an amazing, loving father and role model for our children.
Stephanie is an amazing wife and a wonderful Christian woman. Stephanie is a loving person who enjoys spending time with family and friends and being a part of our church community. She loves spending time interacting and playing games with our nieces and nephews.
She’s intelligent, a very hard worker, and she motivates me daily, seeing how hard she works. Stephanie is great with numbers and budgets, she also enjoys organizing and decorating the house. She is excited to become a mother and to dedicate her time to loving and watching our child grow. She looks forward to teaching our child how to swim, play games, and read.
We have supportive, caring families who will be very involved in the life of your child. Ruiky has four sisters and two brothers with a total of fifteen nieces and nephews who all live within 10 minutes of our home. He is very close with his family, it’s so sweet to see how he cares for his mom and nieces and nephews. Stephanie’s mom and dad live about 5 minutes away, and we love to visit and play cards with them. Stephanie’s sister is married and was blessed with three children through adoption as well. Your child will have plenty of cousins close to grow up with!
Everyone has been so supportive of our decision to adopt and are looking forward to loving on our future child. We are all so excited to open hearts to the baby that will join our family and all the loving family traditions we will have!
We own a 3 bedroom, 2 story home with a completed nursery ready for your little one. We live within walking distance to a great elementary school. Our neighborhood is safe, full of fun and activity with lots of kids playing. We have a nice sized backyard and a fenced in, in-ground pool where we look forward to celebrating birthdays and teaching our children how to swim.
We promise to love your child unconditionally and will raise him or her in a safe and fun environment. We are committed to helping your child grow in Christian faith and to teach them about Jesus’ love for us. We want to share our diverse family life with your child and to teach them about their cultural background and traditions as well.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
We both love to travel and experiencing new places. One of our favorites so far has been Jamaica, the beach and ocean are so relaxing. Traveling to Mexico is also a regular trip for us; we love to visit Ruiky's family there and see all the sights and beautiful views from the mountainside. We also enjoy spending quality time at home and having family over for a BBQ and swim party. From birthday fiestas to dinner and a movie we or even catching a soccer game on TV, we love spending time together.
We believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and that the Bible is the inspired word of God. We believe that the Lord speaks to us through prayer and His word, so we study and engage in both. We were both raised in the Church and believe it provides a firm foundation in which to grow our faith.
|Our Musical Interest|
We love to listen to all kinds of music. Country, Pop, Christian, and Ruiky loves his Mariachi music. We love to sing along to whatever music we are listening too, music plays during almost all of our daily activities.
