Hi!

Thank you! Thank you for having the courage, strength, and compassion to consider adoption. The difficulty of the decision you are faced with is one that we are unable to comprehend, but we are so grateful that you would even consider it; because for people like us that aren’t able to have our own biological children, you are our miracle.

Our story started as a great friendship that turned into an eternal love. We have been married since 2003 and because David is from Spain, that is where we decided to live after we got married. As much as we love Spain, after 10 years there and with much consideration we decided that it was time to move to the U.S. The deciding factor for us was that we knew we would have more possibilities to grow our family through adoption here in the States. In 2015 we were blessed to add to our family, through adoption, our sweet daughter Luçi; she has brought so much joy to our lives. Luçi is now four years old. Through a book we made for her and read to her often, she knows how she came to be part of our family and is now asking “who’s tummy is holding her brother or sister?”

Shortly after we began the adoption process the first time, due to David’s work, we moved to the Bahamas. That is where Luçi spent her first 4 years. We loved living on our little island, but after hurricane Dorian last year we had to move to Florida. We are glad we made the move because the neighborhood we live in is amazing! There are kids everywhere, pools, tennis and basketball courts, and a great community of young families.

As a couple, we love time together, playing tennis, card games, and going out on date nights. Both of us play piano and we are now starting to teach Luçi how to play. We hope we are instilling in her a love for music. The three of us also love a good dance party for no reason! David also plays soccer, chess, and loves all outdoor activities. Cindi has started to really enjoy gardening and is involved with service projects at our church, but mostly loves being a stay-at-home mom. Above all we cherish the time we have teaching, playing, and swimming with Luçi.

Our little trio has been able to enjoy life to the fullest. We enjoy our day to day routine of games, playdoh, ABC’s, and pool time, but we have also been able to travel all over the world. Before she turned 4 Luçi had visited more than 8 countries and been on over 100 plane rides. Learning about other cultures and people is something that is very important to us. We teach our children that even though people and places are different, those differences are what make the world such a special place. David speaks three languages, Cindi speaks two, and from birth, Luçi has been learning both English and Spanish.

Both of us grew up in LDS (Mormon) households where we were taught the importance of family. Here in the U.S., we have a large extended family with many nieces and nephews who adore their cousin Luçi and are so excited to have another little cousin to dote on. In Spain, we have two nieces that we love and miss, but make time to FaceTime with often. We have both been blessed to see first-hand, through the examples of our parents, what it means to put family first and the importance of unconditional love. We are doing our best to “follow in their footsteps” and provide our children with a home filled with love and laughter.

As you make your brave decision, we hope that you will be comforted, knowing how loved and well taken care of your child will be. Luçi wants to say “thank you” for carrying her brother or sister in your tummy. We wish all the best for you at this time and throughout your life. Again, thank you for helping our dreams come true.

Ever grateful,
David, Cindi, and Luçi

Q&A

What do you hope to teach your child(ren)?

Teaching our children is what gives us the most joy and pride in our lives. To see them learn and develop is magic, and it is very important to us that we teach our children about other cultures and people. They will know that even though people and places are different, those differences are what make the world such a special place.

What will you tell your child about his or her Birth Mom?

We made a book that explains how our first child (also adopted) came to be part of our family. The book includes pictures of our families, but also many pictures her Birth Mother sent us of her other children and herself. Luci loves to read “her book”. We will do the same with your child. You will only be spoken of with the utmost respect and love in our home; you are our miracle.

Are you active in your church? Tell us about your activities.

We are active members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We participate in Sunday meetings which include Primary for Luci. We also attend family activities and service activities the Church organizes.

Describe your last vacation.

Our last vacation was amazing. The three of us and one of David’s sisters went on a three-week adventure visiting the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador and then Machu Picchu and other ancient ruins in Peru. We swam with sea lions, saw rare birds, learned more than we ever thought we could about the native people of Peru, and visited beautiful cathedrals. We LOVE to travel!!

Will you be a stay-at-home parent? If so, what are your day-to-day plans?

David’s job is a blessing to our family, it allows Cindi to stay home and take care of Luci and she can’t wait to add another child to each day's adventures. There is a lot of game playing and learning. We can only imagine that there will be a lot of big sister doting on baby time.

When you close your eyes and see yourself holding your precious baby in your arms, what are your thoughts regarding his or her birth mother?

This question brings us to tears. When we are holding your precious baby in our arms and loving on him or her, the only thoughts regarding his or her Birth Mother will be thoughts of love, respect, and most of all gratitude. Other than our parents who gave us our own lives, the Birth Mothers of our children are the people that have given us the greatest gifts we could have in this life.
