Dear Expectant Mother,
With our greatest respect, we admire your courage and
strength to manage so many emotions while making the choice to find the best
home for your child. We truly believe that a choice like this can only be made
from love! We have not met you yet, but we already know that you have a loving
and selfless heart! We assure you that we will love your child unconditionally!
We will protect, cherish and nurture your child, and we will always provide
guidance and support throughout their life.
We are Rodrigo and Kremena, and we live in the sunshine
state Florida. We like to think of ourselves as upbeat, loving, responsible,
intelligent and amusing people, and unless our friends and family have been
lying to us, we are not far off the mark.
I, Kremena, was adopted as a newborn, just a few weeks old. I
am very lucky and blessed to have had such great parents and extended family
who raised me with unlimited love and devotion. Luckily most of my extended
family lived in the same neighborhood, and every day was a holiday for my
cousins and me, enjoying grandma’s food and playing outside. Holidays, like
Christmas and New Year, always included a feast of food, and were cheerful and
loving times. Santa used to visit us with not only one, but two huge sacks of gifts
for all the kids. I grew up spoiled and loved by my entire family, and I am
very attached to them. My parents have always directed me to explore and
develop my abilities with additional activities and summer camps which helped
me to discover my love for computers, science and sports.
I, Rodrigo, grew up in a cheerful, giving and big family in
Brazil. Growing up, I always had my grandparents and uncles living next to me. Family
gatherings were always a lot of fun on weekends and holidays. After school, I
used to go to my grandparents’ house and meet my cousins and neighbors to go
play soccer together. Yes, I love soccer and all outdoor sports. My family has
always been committed to helping children in the community. I have an adopted
cousin who I grew up with, and two neighbors’ children who my mom took care of
for more than ten years. My parents still hold hands and admire each other.
They taught me what love, respect, and honesty means, and I will pass these
values to my children.
We have been married for 9 years, and we desire very much to
grow our family. Expanding our family through adoption has always been part of
our plans. The support and love of our family and friends make this journey
even more exciting for us! Our parents cannot wait to become first time
grandparents! We believe it is a huge honor and privilege to become adoptive
parents. We accept our responsibilities to you and your child with great
respect, commitment and tons of excitement!
With gratitude in our hearts, we would be eternally thankful
and humbled to be given the chance to become parents to your child. We dream so
much of being parents and having our family complete. It would truly be a dream
come true and the gift of our lives!
With blessings and goodwill,
Rodrigo and Kremena
