work and mutual friends. We became very close over several years before falling in love and getting married in 2007. Our relationship thrives with an appreciation for each other’s interests, spending lots of time together and enjoying all of the wonderful things life has to offer. We share many common hobbies such as art, design, cooking, travel and laughing together as much as possible. We try to lead healthy, active lives by spending

Becky is a natural teacher and she nurtures without effort. I love watching her spend time with our nieces and nephews—she’s helped them grow with a confidence and curiosity that will last for a lifetime. She is thrilled to extend her love and affection to a son or daughter!

Rudy hard at work


As an architect, Rudy works on some of the most well-known buildings in New York City, and on some killer sand castles! His Halloween costumes typically showcase his wacky sense of humor as well as his craft skills. I know he is going to make a great Dad.

Together our families are very diverse—we have English, Irish, Dutch, Swedish, Filipino and Cuban backgrounds. We’re from small towns, big cities and places in between. We have five wonderful nieces and nephews and they can’t wait to have a new cousin to play with. Playing with our niece Desiree and nephew Joey

OUR FRIENDS

an important part of our lives. Weekends are a great time to meet and catch up. We spend time cooking meals, playing games and enjoying the outdoors. Many of our friends have small children of their own and we’re excited to add new faces to our loving community.
