We are thrilled you are taking the time to read our profile and consider us as adoptive parents. We realize that this is a brave and difficult decision and cannot imagine how challenging this is for you to make.
We are elated for the chance of becoming parents. Please know that we have the upmost respect for you and all that you are doing for your child. Your decision to place your child for adoption shows how loving and selfless you are.
We will honor you by offering your child endless love.
We met through work friends in 2008, dated 2 years later and fell in love and married in south Florida in 2012. We share a loving and caring relationship built on trust, respect, and mutual admiration. Erika was born in Ecuador and moved to the US with her family when she was 10 years old, so she is very fortunate to speak fluent English and Spanish. Chris was born and raised in New Jersey. We enjoy traveling, cooking, entertaining our families and friends, attending sporting events and concerts, and taking our dog to the beach.
We live in a three bedroom home in a small city in south Florida, 3 miles away from the beach. Our child-friendly neighborhood is filled with friendly neighbors, beautiful trees and birds, golf courses, and children's playgrounds. We have a small, playful dog that enjoys our social gatherings and lounging by our pool. Every April we participate in our city's Spring Festival, and every December we attend our city's Holiday Party and Golf Cart Parade.
Our Extended Family
We're happy to have a close relationship with our families. We are very fortunate to have most of our immediate family living close to us. Chris' parents, sister and family live in Florida. Chris' brother and family live in North Carolina. Erika's mom, stepdad, sister and family, and stepbrother live in Florida. Erika's stepbrother and family live in North Carolina. We have a large extended family that live in New Jersey, Massachusetts, New York, Georgia, Virginia, Italy, and Ecuador. We travel to Ecuador about once per year to visit Erika's uncle and grandfather. At our house, we host many of our family get togethers and holidays, including a big Thanksgiving gathering. We like to get together at our parents' homes for weekend dinners and birthday celebrations.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have been trying to have a family since we got married in 2012. We have learned we cannot conceive children. We are looking forward to adoption because it will allow us to have the family we've wanted for so long.
