Couple works two years to finalize adoption of twin boys before Christmas

A Las Vegas family is officially a family after working for two years.

Alberto and Fabian Montano worked for months and months to finalize the adoption of their twin sons Christopher and Jonathan.

"They have been our babies since day one but it's not the same when you can finally see their birth certificate with our names on it, their names on it, everything is official and nobody can take them away from you anymore," said Montano.

The two-and-a-half-year old twins already know English and Spanish thanks to their new dads.

"It's fun to see them grow up and have their own personalities," said Montano. "Just this week they were having a little conversation between them and Christopher told Jonathan, you wanna watch TV? And Jonathan said yeah I wanna watch TV! He grabbed the remote and he said have a seat!"

The family is excited to spend their first Christmas together officially as a family.

The Montanos say this wouldn't be possible with their incredible support system and employer Bank of America for being so flexible with time off for court hearings and other things related to the adoption.

"We felt blessed before but since they got to our lives it has been just an amazing experience and we are ready to create more memories," said Montano. "It's not only to help them, it's also to make our lives complete."

Bank of America recently was named among the top companies for working parents and best workplace by Fortune Magazine,  a top ten company by Working Mother Magazine for the 29th consecutive year, and one of the 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
