orlando-catheran.jpgOrlando and Catheran are a bi-lingual, active-duty military couple. They're excited to become first-time parents together, and have created this cute video to introduce themselves!

They look forward to sharing their interests with a child. Whether it's Catheran reading stories at bedtime or Orlando teaching skills around his workshop, your child will be introduced to many activities and encouraged to develop his or her own strengths and talents.

This military couple is excited to adopt a boy or girl of any race and will welcome an open adoption, if you’d like. Orlando and Catheran
 promise to nurture and love your child unconditionally. If an open adoption is what you are hoping for, they'd love to talk about how that might look including letters, photos, skype calls and visits. They write, "We will cherish our family’s adoption story and raise your child to know you are special to us all."

Orlando shares about his wife, "Catheran is such an amazing, selfless person. She is great with my daughter and completely loves her. Catheran has a background in teaching elementary school, loves to bake and enjoys cooking homemade meals.

Her compassionate heart comes out in many ways, including the time she spends helping people recover from assault. I truly respect and admire her for what she does for others in need. It’s hard for me to describe Catheran in words. She is awesome and will be such a loving, thoughtful mother!"

Catheran has this to say about her husband: "Orlando is devoted: he takes care of me, his family, friends and his co-workers. He is a leader and loves to be active. (He even taught me to lift weights!) He’s handy with cars and tools and enjoys projects around the house.

My nieces and nephews adore Orlando and love playing with him. Orlando is a wonderful dad and stays as involved as he can in his daughter’s life. We look forward to raising a child together full time!"
