of your child.
and I met in graduate architecture school.
We were very good friends in class for several years before it turned
romantic. I have always thought that
Roberto would make a wonderful father and he thinks I would make a wonderful
mother. After unsuccessfully trying to conceive for several years, we did not
want to give up on a dream for children and a complete family, so we decided to
take adopting a child as the route for us to still achieve this dream.

interests have turned to watercolor painting, exercising, and community work
related to our profession. We have deep
respect for someone as unselfish as you to put the needs of their unborn child
AHEAD of their own; we would appreciate the sacrifice you have made every
single day. We want you to be at ease
knowing that your child will know that they are cherished, loved, appreciated
with gratitude. Your child will know their value and what a gift they are to
the world and those that love them.
get along so well because we share a mutual love and respect for each other.
Roberto and I are friends, as well as partners for life. We live in a townhome that we designed, a mix

himself) as well as Star Wars. He is a kid at heart. He is a very good tennis player, and he likes
to work out. Debbie likes to cook, do
water aerobics, watercolor paint, do yoga, meditate, and volunteer. She plans
to be a stay at home mom. Together, Debbie and Roberto like to read, play
Rummikub and Dominos, watch movies and travel.
views on child-rearing will rely heavily on positive reinforcement,
redirection, and setting a good example in the first place. We are not yellers,
at each other or anyone else. Our number one priority will be the well-being,
and happiness of your child. We will love and care for them all our lives.
both appreciate the gravity of your decision and we hope these times are not
too difficult for you. We wish you the best in everything you do. When it comes to choosing birth parents, we
imagine you want to feel secure in knowing your child will end up with a couple
that is loving, compassionate, patient, thoughtful and giving. Hopefully our
letter conveys to you all the positive attributes we can offer.
Love and Light,
Debbie and Roberto
