Annette & Marcelo

Hello, we are Annette and Marcelo.  We have been married for 24 years.  After several years of trying to start a family through treatments and medications, we feel God has led us to his plan of adoption.  We are aware of what might have brought you to this page, and we pray that you will find the right choice for you.  We would love for you to get to know us through our short video.

In our careers in mental health counseling and fitness training, we both have had many opportunities to work with children, and absolutely love that our professions allow us to do so. As a mental health counselor, Annette helps children to improve their self-esteem and social skills as they deal with anxiety, depression, and issues that are unique to adoption. She is a magnet to children wherever she goes! Marcelo is a fitness and sports teacher who specializes in tennis, soccer, and strength training. Marcelo works with children to develop their strength and self-esteem through athletics, often times putting them on the path to earning collegiate scholarships and recognition for their hard work, ability, and success.
As a couple, we have very solid core values that we believe will help us provide love, stability, and security to a child. We are so ready to become parents, as we both work from home and have flexible work schedules that allow us the opportunity to provide individual time, understanding and support.

We truly believe that adoption is the blessing we have been waiting for to fulfil our dream of becoming parents. Our faith in God is our steering wheel, and with God all things are possible… Matthew 19:23

God Bless you
Annette and Marcelo
