adoption profile - Julio & Michelle

Julio & Michelle

Waiting for a little one to help us build sand castles at the beach and enjoy life with our family in Los Angeles!

Our family is filled with: love, diversity, joy, adventure, quality-time, and desiring to adopt since before we got married. Your baby will be blessed with a big sister, who can’t wait for a brother/sister. A child can never have too many people that love them, so we welcome an open adoption!
