From Us to You

Dear Expectant Mother,

We are honored and thankful to share our love story and our family with you via this profile as you search to find the right adoptive parents for your precious baby.  We want you to know that we wish the very best for you and your baby and we are committed to being the best parents possible. Also, we are receptive to maintaining an open friendship with you if this is something you desire.

Our love story began 11 years ago when we were invited to a wine tasting event for business professionals. An instant chemistry was felt by both of us, and we ended up having a romantic dinner the very same night.  At the end of the evening, we exchanged phone numbers and the rest is history.  In less than a year, we met each other’s families, committed to be together, built a home, started a company, and named our future children.  We did not know or realize the road to parenthood would be a challenging one for us. Through the years, we have learned to lean on each other, as well as on our supportive families, and our faith.  We understand, more than anything, it is important to live in the moment, cherishing the people and things we have been blessed with.

We are excited to share our home with your baby. Your baby will have wonderful grandparents, uncles, aunts, and nephews to play with; and will live in a safe and gated community. Our 2 yorkies, Alex the Great and Helen of Troy, are excited at the prospect of growing our family and they both love to play with children. Peter and I grew up in Europe and we have the best memories of summer vacations by the Mediterranean Sea.  We can’t wait to take our family to the same places we spent summers, as children. As they grow up, we dream of taking your child to sporting events and amusement parks. We will of course spend time during the evenings doing homework and reading bedtime stories.

We want you to know that if you choose us to be the adopted parents of your baby, we would welcome him/her into our family and give them a world of opportunities to learn and to grow.  We promise to pray for you, to only say the best things about you when our baby grows up and asks questions. We will do everything we can possibly do to give your baby the best life!

Sincerely,
Angelica & Peter (for Alex the Great and Helen of Troy too 😊 )

Why We Are Choosing to Adopt

We still remember the early days of our relationship when we were in a state of complete happiness and disbelief that we finally had found each other!  We named our future children shortly after because we knew that we were meant for each other and pledged our lives together.  We never dreamed that becoming parents would be so challenging.  We went through several rounds of IVF and many other treatments.  After all these years, adoption is more than just a dream of becoming parents.  We are at a point in our lives that we have so much to offer to a child and we want to make a difference and change a child’s life for the better and give him/her the best life possible.

How We Met

We were born and raised worlds apart and it took us a while to finally find each other and we are so thrilled we did. We were both invited to attend a wine tasting event for young, single professionals.  We started talking and we felt an instant chemistry and a sense that we have known each other forever.  We ended up having dinner the same night.  The dinner continued with dessert and coffee.  We exchanged phone numbers at the end of the evening, and we have been together ever since. We recently celebrated our 11th year anniversary!

Our Home & Neighborhood

We are blessed to live in a two-story home in a safe and gated neighborhood.  We both work from home and have the flexibility to maintain a work life balance. When we become parents, we plan on having a nanny to help but, since we both work from home, one of us will always be near your baby. Your baby’s nursery will be right next to our bedroom and they will even have their very own playroom.

Our home has 6 bedrooms, a pool and a fenced backyard overlooking the lake with amazing views of sunrises and rainbows! We have already picked out a spot in our backyard for a swing set for your child to play on as they grow.  Our backyard overlooks the lake, so we have front row seats every 4th of July and New Year’s Eve to watch the fireworks.  We are surrounded by young families with children.  We get to enjoy the sounds of children safely playing outside and see them ride their bikes.  Every morning we walk our dogs before going to work and, we have gotten to know well all the families who also have dogs in the neighborhood.  Our city is very kid friendly.  There are many recreational parks, family festivals, as well as excellent public and private schools.  We often stop and ponder all of God’s blessings in our lives and are grateful for where we are. We can’t wait to share all of this with your child.

Our Dogs

Our two yorkies (Alex the Great and Helen of Troy) mean the world to us!  They have the most amazing personalities and they keep us entertained.  Alex the Great is charming and inquisitive.  He likes to be in the midst of all the action and thinks that everyone who visits us (including the mailman or the handyman) is here to play with him.  Helen of Troy is the athlete in the family! She is passionate about swimming in the pool and she gets so excited once she smells the bathing suit and the pool towels.  Angelica cooks for them (primarily rice with chicken and eggs) and their favorite snack is cold watermelon, especially on a hot, Floridian, summery day.

Our Lifestyle

Our time at home is our time to rejuvenate and spend quality time with each other and friends.  Peter has a Saturday morning routine that includes playing tennis at the local tennis club with friends.  Helen of Troy (our yorkie) eagerly waits for him to return because she knows Peter will take her to the pool for a swim as soon as he comes home.  Angelica’s Saturday morning routine includes exercise, getting acupuncture or nails & hair done.  Peter loves to watch sports in the afternoon and Angelica loves to watch home remodeling and cooking shows.  We love to cook together and enjoy a meal by the lake, which we do often.  We have our favorite Sunday morning brunch restaurant by the beach where we go often to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and happy milestones for us and our families.

We also enjoy spontaneous mini vacations.  Some of our favorite vacations include a weekend in Paris eating delicious food, a weekend in New York City catching a late-night show, a trip to Sonoma visiting wineries or a weekend in Cancun, Mexico!

Our Families

Since our families live overseas (Greece and Denmark) and out of state (Massachusetts), we consider it to be a luxury each time they come to visit us, or we visit them.  Family time is the most precious time for us!  We enjoy talking, playing games, hanging out by the pool, and cooking together. Angelica loves photography and she organizes photoshoot sessions with our families all dressed up around our yard and neighborhood.  For Christmas, our families look forward to receiving a photo book of all pictures which has become a tradition after all these years.

Traditions

One of the many things that attracted us to each other, is the love for our families and how close we are to them.  Peter traveled extensively for many years for work but, he promised his family that he would always be home for Christmas.  So, every Christmas we fly to Europe to visit his parents, brother and nephews who can’t wait to see us.  Peter’s family celebrates Christmas on Christmas Eve which is their country’s tradition (Denmark).  Peter’s mom cooks duck with caramelized potatoes (their version of sweet potatoes) and we sing carols around the Christmas tree prior to opening gifts. And whenever we are lucky, we get to celebrate a White Christmas!  We fly back to Florida just in time to celebrate New Year’s with Angelica’s family who flies over from Massachusetts and Greece. Angelica’s nephew just turned 4 and he is the center of attention. Family is everything to us and we feel grateful to celebrate the end of the year and the start of a new year with our families.  We are blessed to have a large home to have everyone come over and spend time hanging out by the pool, shopping, cooking together, watching golf and tennis on TV, and playing games.  UNO is a family favorite. We can’t wait to share our family traditions with your baby.

Our Relationship with You

Since the very beginning days of us considering adoption, we always said that we wanted to be transparent with our child about his or her birth parent(s). We would only tell your child of the love and courage you have for him or her. We would welcome an open relationship with you if this is something that you wish to have. We would want to share pictures of your child’s milestones so you know that your child is safe and in a loving and nurturing environment.

What We Will Teach

We both have a great appreciation for our parents and the values they instilled in us. Integrity, work ethic, compassion, character, kindness, generosity, education, and faith are some of the values we will instill in our child. We have already done research and identified a couple of great private schools close to our home when the time comes. We will also sign up for a savings account for your child’s college education the moment we become parents.

If we adopt a baby boy, your son will have such a great role model in Peter.  Peter is an exceptional man full of confidence, and a deep sense of responsibility.  He goes over and above to take care of us.  Angelica can see Peter take our son to tennis lessons and tennis events. Peter is a great storyteller and loves to talk about other cultures and countries.  Your baby boy will have boy cousins to play video games, paintball, soccer and go to athletic events!

If we adopt a baby girl, we will aim to raise her to be a smart, confident daughter who is sweet, compassionate, and kind. Your daughter will have great women around her as role models.  Peter’s mother was the first one in her family to go to college, finished top of law school, and worked for the government in her country.  Angelica’s grandmother and mother were educators.  Angelica’s grandmother went to university at a time when only a few women would go to higher education in her country. Angelica’s parents were ministers and her mother continues to do humanitarian work among refugees and gypsies in southern Europe.  Angelica looks forward to being a mom and doing fun, girl activities like painting nails and having tea parties.  She also looks forward to doing swimming lessons, theme birthday parties, school field trips, and dressing up in the backyard of our home.

We are beyond excited to meet your baby and welcome him/her into our family.  We promise to give your baby the best life possible!
