We are Harold and Theresa. We met ten years ago when we were both new at the same job. We quickly became friends and started dating a few months later. It didn’t take us long to realize that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. We got married in 2014, and the past nine years have been full of growth, joy, and adventure.
We love to travel when we can, and we love hiking in the St. Louis area and trying out new recipes and restaurants. We also both love reading and learning new things. We are Catholic, and our faith is very important to us. We go to church every Sunday, and Harold serves by proclaiming the scriptures for the congregation and volunteering with an adult faith formation program.
Theresa studied English, Spanish and education and is a high school teacher, and Harold studied philosophy and theology, and has worked in pastoral ministry and education. He currently works in higher education administration.
We live in a diverse, walkable neighborhood in St. Louis, near Theresa’s family and many of our friends. Harold was born in Mexico and grew up in Texas. We both speak English and Spanish, and we hope to raise our children to be comfortable in both languages and to have an appreciation for cultural diversity.
We are excited to grow our family through adoption.
Our message to you:
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about us. We know that you are making a very important decision, and you are in our thoughts and prayers. We are so excited to love a child unconditionally and to help them grow into the unique person that God created them be. We will always view you with love and gratitude, and we will celebrate our child’s adoption story and your amazing role in it.
