I moved to Milwaukee right after graduation o experience the ''BIG'' city. Between School and work I find ways to stay active in the community and keep up with my circle of life-omg friends. When Not at work, I like to keep things light and silly. Painting parties and catching up on cartoons are two of my guilty pleasures.

I grew up in Puerto Rico where I found a passion for exploration. I loved building bamboo forts and finding new waterfalls. When I moved to Wisconsin, I threw myself into the art scene. I love working with my hands. I am currently working towards my teaching certification and helping out with the Big Brother Big Sisters program. In my spare time am keeping up with gymnastics, reality Tv and my comic books.

Dear Birthmother

Thank you for taking the time to read our story and considering us to be the parents to your baby. We are humbled by your bravery in considering adoption. It is difficult to fit our lives into a small survey, but we hope that it will give you an idea of who we are and why we would make great fathers. We have a wonderful life together and cannot wait to add a child to that. We have always known we would raise a family together and we thank you for giving us the chance to make your baby part of that. We look forward to learning more about you as well as sharing more information about ourselves. We are here to support you and would be happy to answer any questions you may have for us. Justin & Jose

Reason to Adopt

Besides the obvious logistics of having a biological child, we believe that we have built a home and community based in love and common human understanding. There are children out there in need of the exact things we have in abundance. We look forward to expanding our family through adoption and a continued connection with the birth family.

Our Story

We met at an community event 13 years ago. At the time we would be settling down together. While dating, we discovered a mutual in art, sci-fi, theater, among other things. We introduced each other to families, both biological and chosen. All sides were welcoming and accepting of our connection. This connection only strengthened when we moved to Puerto Rico for 2 years. We have both known that having children was part of our path, and knew that was our main goal in moving back to Wisconsin. We chose to define our bond legal through a courthouse marriage to be followed by a family wedding back on the island. We have found that traveling to Northern Wisconsin, Puerto Rico and the local community has kept our connection strong. We know that every day is a gift and we strive to push each other to be our best selves.

Our Home

We live in a 3 bedroom home in Milwaukee county. We have a fenced in yard which works great for get togethers with friends and neighbors. We are two blocks from the closest park, which we walk through daily with our dog Reina. She loves the attention from all of the kids. Every weekend there is a community farmers market and weekly movie night. We are members of the neighborhood association and plan to be equally active in our families' school. It is important to us to be participating members in the community. It is wonderful being part of such a close knit neighborhood.

Our Community - Adventures

We have many close friends that live here in the city. This gives us opportunity to have weekly get togethers or quick weekend getaways. We consider our close fiends family and typically celebrate major holidays together in our home. They are also a huge support for causes important to us such as Lung Force and the Pajama Grandma Legacy that collects jammies for less fortunate kids. Friends and family play a huge role in our vacation planning. Puerto Rico is a great getaway for our friends with children. We absolutely LOVE adventure and time with those closest to us. Jose makes a point that we try something new every trip to the island. When we can't get to the island, we bring Mamita to us! Justin does the same in Wisconsin. We try to get to as many local festivals/fairs as possible, ice castles and sledding to the very cold waterfalls of Northern, WI. We are excited to introduce a child to our loving community!
