Hello and hola, we are Melissa and Esteban! Thank you so much for taking the time to look at our profile, it is such an honor that you would consider us. We have great respect for you and the difficult journey you are on. We have been praying that you find deep peace in all of the many decisions you are making. 

We met in Chicago in 2009. We were moving into neighboring apartments and kept passing each other in the hall with our boxes. A true Argentine gentleman, Esteban kindly helped Melissa carry her things, and we discovered we had both moved from far away to start graduate school. We quickly became each other’s first friend in a new city and got to know each other over board games and home-cooked meals. Our friendship blossomed into love, and we were married in a beautiful Spanish mission in 2013, surrounded by our family and friends. We moved to Miami after we finished our degrees and are now ready to share our love with a child!

Adoption is our first choice for starting our family, we even discussed it before we were married. Our hearts are deeply invested in raising a child who is confident in the love that fills all sides their adoption story, and we will always honor his or her birth family in our words and actions. Truly, we hold that sacrifice with the highest esteem, knowing that only love could drive such a difficult decision. We look forward to seeing how strangers will come together to create a beautiful family through this sacred gift.

FAQ’s about placing a baby for Adoption

I'm considering giving my baby up for adoption. How much does that cost?

It won't cost you anything. If you choose to place your baby for adoption, all of your medical and legal fees will be covered and you may be eligible for financial assistance with other pregnancy-related expenses.

I'm experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and don't know who the birth father is. Can I still place my baby for adoption?

Yes. Even if you don’t know the identity of the birth father, you can still choose to make an adoption plan. However, every adoption situation is different. The adoption social worker you’re assigned to will get to know you and your story first, and then guide you through the process accordingly.

When is the right time to talk with an adoption professional?

You can make an adoption plan at any point in your pregnancy, even after the baby has been born. But, it's important to start the process as early in your pregnancy as possible. Connecting with those resources will allow you to gain access to important medical services, including prenatal care, to help ensure a healthy pregnancy.

When I create an adoption plan, will I get to choose who is in the room with me during delivery?

One aspect of your adoption plan is the "Hospital Plan" an outline of how you'd like your hospital stay and delivery to go. You can craft this on your own or with the help of your adoption social worker. But everything is up to you. You’ll be able to choose who comes to the hospital with you, who is in the room with you during delivery, and how much time you’d like to spend with the baby before signing the final papers.

How much contact will I have with the adoptive family after I place my baby with them?

As part of your adoption plan, you'll determine whether or not you’d like to have an open or closed adoption or something in between. Open adoptions may include phone calls, messaging (via social media, email, or text), and/or periodic visits each year. Closed adoptions may include no contact at all or annual updates provided to the birth parent(s) by the adoptive family. Each post-adoption relationship is different and can vary based on what an expectant mother chooses in her adoption plan.
