We met over 14 years ago while studying forestry at North Carolina State University. We often had to take trips to the forest together for our classes, and it is there that we fell in love. We have been married for almost ten wonderful years! We enjoy spending time together and can’t wait to experience the wonders of nature with our child! Luis loves his data analysis job because he gets to play with cool mapping software to make neat maps. Ginger decided to go back to school and is really enjoying studying tourism – she has even gotten to travel to cool places like Australia and Germany! Our lives are open and flexible so we can create a loving home for our child.

About Ginger, by Luis

Ginger is the most outgoing and friendly person I've ever met, which is the main reason I love her so much. She has a lot of energy and loves spending time enjoying our yard or exploring the outdoors. I would love to see Ginger and our child walking hand in hand having fun searching for turtles in a creek at grandpa’s house! After turtle-hunting, I know I will be able to find them watching a football game on TV cheering on her favorite team, the Auburn Tigers! Ginger is a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer and has a special place in her heart for Guatemala, where she served. She loves life and will make every day a fun adventure for our child!

About Luis, by Ginger

Luis is honestly the nicest, most respectful person I have ever met. He is devoted, caring and honest, and is very supportive and encouraging. He has been practicing martial arts for a long time and I definitely think that helps him be so centered and mindful. Luis loves dogs as much as I do and that’s one of the reasons I fell in love with him. He also loves soccer and can’t wait to pass on the goal-keeping secrets of his family’s three generations of goalies! I can vividly imagine him teaching our child martial arts and soccer, yelling “Gooooollll” at our child’s first score! Luis will be a great dad because I know, without a doubt, that he will be so devoted to our child.

Our Family

We are very close to our families and love to spend time with them. We already share a special connection with adoption, as Luis’ family near Washington, DC includes one adopted child. Cousins Joaquín, Fernanda, and Luciana are looking forward to fun visits with their new cousin to go ice-skating at the National Mall or even to an exciting children’s museum to explore together! Luis’ parents both live in Lima, Peru and we will be able to visit the abuelitos, or grandparents in Spanish, often. Ginger’s sister lives in Atlanta and studies Egyptian history and art. Aunt Jenny will love teaching our child all about pharaohs, pyramids and even mummies! Ginger’s dad lives in Alabama and will be so excited to see his grandchild playing on the farm. Ginger’s mother lives across the street from us in Raleigh and can’t wait to read a story to her new grandchild!
