Hello! We are Orlando and Andrea. Thank you for the loving and courageous decision you are making for your child, we respect you for what you are doing as we know it requires a lot of love and strength. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to share a little bit about us, and we would love to meet you and get to know you.
Andrea was born and raised in Boise, Idaho and Orlando is from Nicaragua. We met 9 years ago when Andrea went to Nicaragua as a missionary and we have been married for 6 years. After Andrea had lived in Nicaragua and grew to love Orlando’s country and culture as home, we decided to move to Boise to settle close to Andrea’s family. We have been in Boise for 3 years and Andrea has found her role as an office manager for a non-profit healthcare organization, while Orlando enjoys the physical challenges of being a machine operator.
We love to keep life simple and enjoy every minute. Andrea enjoys sewing, gardening, reading, and being creative whether it is in the kitchen or with crafts. Orlando loves soccer (go Real Madrid!), playing guitar, and playing video games.Camping, kayaking, going for family bike rides or walks are some of our favorite things to do together. We have a 7 year old German Shepherd who is very playful and reminds us what unconditional love looks like.
We are excited to grow our family through adoption, with so much love to give. Family is so important to us, and we have learned how to stay connect even when one of us is far from ‘home’. We love kids and are often noted as the favorite aunt & uncle to our nieces and nephews. We are hoping for an open or semi-open adoption, but respect your desire for level of openness and want what is best for you and your child.
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a little about us. We are praying for you as you make this important decision for you and your child.
