Hello! We are Juliet and Nico. We want to thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We both come from loving and supportive families. We would be blessed to be able to share that same joy, laughter, support and love with your child as their adoptive parents. Our hopes are that you will see how much unconditional love we have for each other, our family and friends after learning more about us through our profile. We can only begin to imagine what a difficult time this has been for you and how hard the choices are that you have been facing. We admire your courage and selflessness for considering to put your baby’s needs above your own. Please know that in your absence we will always speak of you with respect and admiration. We want you to feel comfortable with us and we want you to know that we will be open to any type of communication that feels right for you. We want to support you and your baby the best way we can. We look forward to getting to know you better and hope that we can help bring you some peace of mind in the decision that you ultimately make.
We are a happy, fun, healthy and loving married couple who has been together for 10 years (married for 7yrs). Juliet found her Romeo in Nico. He is tall, good looking, self-confident and intelligent. While you would think that would grab any lady's attention, it was actually his wonderful sense of humor that stole her heart. He has such a witty sense of humor and it keeps Juliet laughing and on her toes. Juliet knows Nico as sensitive, loyal and openly affectionate. He is passionate about sports and participates regularly in mountain biking, running, swimming and golf. Nico is a wonderful role model to many of his friend's young children who know him affectionately as "Uncle Coco". Juliet knows Nico will be a wonderful father one day!
Nico fell in love with Juliet at first sight. He noticed her smile across the room at a birthday party and did not waste time introducing himself. He fell in love with her sensitive, kind, caring and compassionate nature. He could tell by the way she spoke of her family that she was very family oriented. She also has a huge heart and is often giving up her free time to help others in need. Juliet is spontaneous and adventurous. He also loves that they share a passion for the outdoors and sports. Juliet has played on softball teams, enjoys running, swimming, biking and yoga. They often participate in sporting activities outdoors on the weekend together. Juliet can be tough when she needs to, but loving, caring, tender and nurturing in the right moment. Nico knows Juliet will make a wonderful mother one day!
We live in a lovely modern home in the San Diego region of California. We have a large master bedroom with en-suite, open kitchen and entertainment area, home office and spare bedroom waiting for a baby. Juliet is a passionate cook and they both love to host dinner parties or BBQs around the pool. Juliet also loves to decorate their home to make their space warm and inviting. Nico often teases her that she is switching the couch pillows on him at least once a week. We live in a safe, suburb and community in which you can find many young children playing outside. We are within walking distance to the local schools, playgrounds, parks, shops and hospital. On the weekend, you will find us at the beach, were we often take long walks, stop to feel the sand between our toes and listen to the sound of the waves rolling in.
Our Extended Family
Family plays a big role and important part of both our lives. Nico has strong family values which come from having grown up in a very supportive and loving family. He has a close and meaningful relationship with both his parents and sister and speaks to them regularly. Nico is a protective big brother who is always there for his younger sister. She often comes to him for sound advice.
Juliet's family includes her mother, father, step-mom, sister, and three half-sisters. She is in regular contact with her whole family, but has a very special bond with her mother (a retired nurse) and younger sister, Anna. Anna has two young boys (Joshua 2yrs, and Byron 4yrs) and Nico and Juliet were chosen as Byron's godparents. Juliet also has a large extended family living in New Zealand, Australia and California. They try to visit with them at least once a year.
Our Family Traditions
To us, there is no better way to spend our holidays than with our family. Christmas is a joyous time and our most celebrated holiday tradition. It is easy for our family to get into the Christmas spirit when the snow falls, the Christmas carols are playing on Christmas eve and the Christmas tree is lit up with colored lights. We take turns each year visiting our respective families. Despite being adults, we still leave Santa a drink by the chimney and carrots for his hungry Reindeer. Sure enough, on Christmas morning, when we get up, the glass is empty and the carrots are gone (it is important to us, that we never lose our inner child). Not long after, we open any presents “Santa” may have left us under the tree. During the day, we might have a family secret Santa present exchange, or play charades. Otherwise, we just love to sit around and talk endlessly, nibbling away on yummy snacks, all while we wait on the delicious roast dinner to finish cooking in the oven. Down under, it is not uncommon for our family to go to the beach together for a swim or surf after opening presents on Christmas morning. Instead of having a hot roast dinner, we might have a leisurely barbecue in the late afternoon. It is times like these that really make us stop and reflect for a moment, to realize how lucky we all are and to be sharing these special memories together.
What Led Us To Adoption
When we first met we envisioned a family of our own. After many years of trying for a family of our own and several failed IVF attempts, we started to feel that adoption might be our destined journey. Our hope is that one day, we will be blessed enough to become parents. We hope to teach our child to be generous with their affection and to love and respect themselves and others. To be honest, always tell the truth, to challenge themselves and set achievable goals. To dream big and always believe in themselves even when others do not. To give back to their community and help others less fortunate. To lead a healthy lifestyle and most importantly to have some fun. At the risk of sounding cliché, we have both learned that life is too short not too!
