Julio & Monique

Dear Birth Mom,

As you look at our profile, we hope you get a glimpse into our life and see the love, laughter and adventures we have as a family and that we would provide to your child! Since we started having conversations about family, adoption has always been on our minds as a way we planned to grow our family. The role you take in that is truly cherished and appreciated! We couldn’t be more excited and we hope if you pick us, you can feel just as proud! The incredible gift you give us will be a blessing.

About Julio & Monique

Our Family consists of Julio and Monique and our son Max. We love animals! We have an Australian cattle dog named “Piper” and 4 Rescue cats Ashoka Tano, Ziggy, Lola and Saide. We live in in beautiful Santa Clarita just north of Los Angeles in our dream home! A great community with an incredible school district. We always take full advantage of all the parks, lake and nearby beaches. Monique works for the school district overseeing several charter schools. Julio is a Stay Home Dad and Jack of all trades working occasionally for a private investigator and a local comic book store.


I met Monique when I was 20.  She taught tennis and I worked the front desk at a tennis club.  I think I barely worked there a month before we began dating.  We had an instant connection and before we knew it we were standing over a koi pond in a Japanese Garden exchanging vows.
First and foremost, Monique is kind and loving.  She is an amazing mother and an incredible partner.  When I watch her reading books to Max she is so patient and funny teaching our son to read.
My favorite thing about Monique is she can go from being a school district administrator to 100% geek mode in seconds.  She is always up for watching a Star Wars movie, helping us find a hard to get collectible action figure to dressing up in Max’s crazy costumes he puts together!
Every day is a blessing for Max and me to have such a wonderful woman in our life.  I would not be who I am today without her.  She is my heart and soul, wife and best friend.

From the moment I met Julio, he has always made me laugh!  He is the king of social event planning!  Always bringing friends and family together!  Julio is one of the most caring and thoughtful people I know!  He has always been my greatest supporter in following my dreams. He does the same for our son Max who wants to be a Pro golfer and save the world from zombies.  From taking him to his golf lessons setting up putting greens at the house to fortifying the house from Zombie attacks- he has his back!. I know he will do the same for your child.
Looking for an amazing dad? Julio is the one!  He is a stay at home dad and has created a strong bond with Max and looks forward to doing it again!  He is very involved, doing middle of the night feedings, diaper changes, plans fun excursions, and will spontaneously take us out for ice cream!
He is one of the most creative people I know and has a talent for storytelling.  Julio has always loved movies, comic books and music.  He shares all this with Max.  I love riding in the car with them and hearing Max sing Julio’s favorite songs!

Max is very excited to be a big brother! He talks about it all the time!
Julio has two favorite characters named Max!  From the book Where the Wild Things Are and from the movie The Road Warrior, thus our Max has taken up the nickname “Mad Max” after these characters which is fitting due to his tenacious and adventurous personality!
At age 2-1/2 Max decided he wanted to play golf and since then he plays on a regular basis and has won several skill tournaments!
Some things to know about Max: • Outgoing, confident and loving. • Fun, intelligent and happy. • We are very proud of how caring he is to others. • Curious and clever.   • He thrives and is involved in many activities: Max takes lessons in golf, swimming, jujitsu, Spanish, tennis, and attends a children’s church group.   • Max loves to play dress-up, play soccer, basketball, baseball, go to the zoo, train parks, pumpkin patches, hands on kid museums and comic book conventions
Some of Max’s favorite things: Building Legos Anything Star Wars  Play time with his friends and cousins
