We would be lying if we told you we knew what you are going through right now. We can’t even begin to imagine it. What we do know is that you are so brave, and so strong, and that we are so proud of you! We admire your strength and selflessness, and even if you don’t pick us, we are so happy some other couple like us will get the chance to have their prayers answered because of you.
We want to thank you for taking time to read our profile, and get a little peek into our lives. We know it’s very hard to make such a huge decision based only on what you’ll read here, but we would love to get to know you more, and tell you more about ourselves. We have been waiting for a long time to become parents, and we can’t wait to give your little one all this love we have been keeping inside of us. We will cherish your child, and we will do our best to help him or her be the best person they can be. We will give your baby all that is in our power so nothing he or she dreams of is ever out of reach. We firmly believe in being kind, honest, compassionate, and loving, so believe us when we tell you your baby will never want for any of those things.
We have a big wonderful crazy family ready to welcome your baby with open arms and open hearts, and know that we are all ready to welcome you as well, in whatever terms you decide. This child you are carrying is all our dreams come true, and we cannot put into words how thankful we will forever be to you for this.
We met while working for the same company 4 years ago. We were good friends before we started dating, so our relationship has a solid foundation of love, friendship, and respect. We got married in June 2016, and we’ve been loving every minute of it. We decided we wanted to add to our little family right away, as we both have always wanted kids. Ana enjoys all things crafty and artsy and diy; Mitch loves soccer and movies. Together, we love doing simple things like going to the movies, taking our dog Maggie on walks, dining out, going away for a weekend at the beach, or spending a quiet evening home with Chinese takeout and Netflix.
We are very happy to have just moved into a brand new 3-level, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms townhouse. Ana is now busy making it a home, and can often be found with paint in her hair, and a hammer in her hand. Mitch is not so handy and prefers to watch it from the sidelines with our Boston terrier, Maggie. She’s a wonderfully weird and sweet dog, who just turned 7! Our townhouse is in a beautiful new development with families from all over the world. Our unit backs out to a little pond, and we love going for walks around it with Maggie. We live in a small town, with lots of fun activities for families, like trails, parks, and festivals and parades, and we are lucky enough to live within driving distance of Washington DC, with all its wonderful museums and monuments.
Our Extended Family
Both of us come from very loving and close-knit families. The only problem is that they are all over the world! Mitch is originally from Algeria, a big country in North Africa; Ana is from Brazil.
So our family is still located in both those countries and Ana’s sister lives in Ireland. Although we don’t get to see them as often as we’d like, one of us is always travelling to see the other. We are really looking forward to all our travels to Brazil, Algeria, and Ireland. That is, when we don’t have our family over for a visit! Coming from such different backgrounds, our family is a funny thing to see. Between us, we speak 4 different languages (Arabic, Portuguese, French, English), and we try to incorporate a bit of all our traditions and backgrounds into everything we do. It’s quite a mixture! We are all very close, and we love Skype-ing during important dates such as birthdays and holidays. Although we don’t have them physically here with us, we love them with all our hearts and we are very lucky to have such a wonderful family who loves us so much and are so happy at the idea of adding another member to this crazy mix!
What Led Us To Adoption
Ana’s known for a long time that getting pregnant on her own was going to be very very hard, so adoption was always on the table. Mitch was always open to it as well, so we didn’t even think about it when the time came for us to add to our little family. We started going down the fertility treatment route, but something in our hearts kept calling us back to adoption, so here we are!
