Justin & Aurora

Hello! We are an affectionate and active family of five, looking to become six through adoption. Our hope is to provide your child with a loving and secure home, where they can have fun and learn about the world. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and considering us to be parents to your child. We wish you strength and peace.

Cultural Heritage

Happy Family

We are a pretty mixed family culturally. Aurora was born and grew up in a small town in Italy. Justin was born to English parents in South America and spent most of his childhood there. Now we live in the United States and our children are very definitely growing into little Americans.

Our family makes a lot of effort to stay in touch with its roots, by visiting relatives in Europe, talking to our children in the languages we grew up speaking, and researching and experiencing the culture and history of all the places which have an influence on our family; Europe, the United States and Latin America. We try to be open not only about the different perspectives that our backgrounds bring, but also the many common aspects we encounter.

We would continue this approach with your child, much like we are doing with our adopted son, Leone. The ethnic heritage of your child will become part of our family's culture. We would welcome any information about your cultural traditions so that we can incorporate these into family life and pass them on to your child.

What it Means to be Parents

We have three children. Our son, Socrate, is four, curious and full of energy. Our daughter, Luna, is a very social three-year-old. Our sone, Leone, is a happy and extroverted one-year-old boy. They are so excited about the idea of a little brother or sister. We are trying to raise our children in a loving environment. We want them to have fun, learn about the world around them, and be good people. We seek to teach them through our own actions to love and respect themselves and others. We pray that they will be able to realize their potential and be confident, but also respectful of others and aware that for every right there is a duty.

Why We Chose Adoption

We Can't Wait to Adopt Again!

We have always wanted a large and diverse family, and expanding our family through adoption is one of the earliest things we discussed in our marriage. Last year we adopted Leone, who has brought so much joy and laughter to our house. It has been amazing to see the bonds develop between the three kids – they have become a cheeky gang of three often conspiring against us! We have been blessed with strong relationships within our immediate and wider families, with good health and with financial stability. We are grateful for the opportunity to welcome a new child into our family.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We have a four bedroom house in a leafy neighborhood of the city. The downstairs is an open floor plan, with plenty of space for children to run around and play. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing meals and the open plan allows us to keep an eye on whatever the kids are up to – often something mischievous it seems.

Our street is a lot of fun, with plenty of children below the age of 10 for our children to play with. We take turns with our neighbors in organizing play dates on many of the weekends. Every summer we close off the street and help the families around us organize a street party with potluck dinner, paddling pools and fun games for the children.

There is a nature trail just across the road from our house. There are also lots of playgrounds and a children's pool close by. We are a few minutes' walk from small town-center with shops, restaurants, a library and a fire station. On the weekends, we like to walk to a local coffee shop for breakfast and then take the children to the park. We also like walking along the river that runs through the city and watching the boats. We can't wait to share all of these wonderful things with another child!

Our Extended Families

Visit from Nona

We both enjoy getting together with our wider families, and the children love being spoiled by grandparents. Christmas and summertime are wonderful opportunities to travel to England and Italy to see relatives, who also drop by our home in the United States several times a year.

Justin has three sisters and nine nieces and nephews who all live in the United Kingdom. This year we are planning a large family holiday in Europe – we will need several houses to fit the twenty-one adults and children! Our kids are looking forward to catching up with their cousins and playing.

Cousins

Aurora has one brother who visits us often. Her family lives in a beautiful city in Italy famous for its amazing food. Aurora's mum enjoys cooking for the children and cannot wait to have one more at the table. Aurora's dad seizes every opportunity he can to explore nature with his grandchildren.

From Us to You

Hello. Our names are Aurora and Justin. We do not know your circumstances, but we do know that is a brave and selfless choice to consider adoption. We hope that we can provide some answers to the many questions you may have that will help you with the decision ahead. If you pick us to be parents for your child, we promise to raise them in a fun environment, give them examples of good values and teach them about their cultural background.

We have been married for 14 years and adopting a child is one of the first issues we spoke about in our relationship. We have two biological children, Socrate and Luna, and an adopted child, Leone. They are thrilled about having a new brother or sister. Justin comes from a large family and has wonderful childhood memories of the fun that comes from growing up with lots of siblings. We have always wanted to provide the same experience for our children, adopted and biological. Our wider families are also excited about the idea of getting to know and loving a new child.

We are very open in our family about adoption. Much like we are doing with Leone, we will let your child know they are loved and special and that we were lucky to be chosen as their parents. We will talk with your child early and often about their adoption story, as this will become a part of our unique family life and culture. We believe that your child should know of your love for them in making an adoption plan and our gratitude for the opportunity to be part of their life. We will speak with your child about their cultural and ethnic background. We promise that we will also share with you through photos, letters and emails how your child is growing and let you know about key milestones in their childhood.

We are trying to raise our children in a loving family and this family life will be enriched by the adoption of your child. We will seek to teach our children through our own actions and example to love and respect themselves and others. We will love this child and do everything we can to help realize their potential and lead a good life. Of course, we will be there for them always, in the good times, the bad times and everything in between.

We have been blessed with strong relationships within our immediate and wider families and with good health – and we feel we have so much to share with your child. We are lucky to both have good and reliable jobs that provide us with financial stability. Our neighborhood and community are fun and diverse, providing a supportive environment for raising a family. There are many good schools, parks, and fun activities for children to be involved in.

We have a lot of respect for the decision you are making and believe that adoption is a precious gift of love. As you think about who will raise your child, we want you to know that it would give us immense joy to make him or her part of our lives. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and we wish you strength and peace for the road ahead.

Warmest regards,

Justin & Aurora
