Why We Chose Adoption

So Happy Together!

We always wanted to have more than one child. We both have a brother an a sister so we wanted our children to grow up in a similar family environment.

Adoption was something that we discussed early in our relationship and we agreed that it was a path we would like to go through even if we where able to have biological children. A few years after getting married we decided to start a family. We where able to conceive fairly easy, but due to pregnancy complications we lost our first boy. A year later we were blessed with a beautiful daughter, Sarai.

Sarai is the joy of our family, she makes everybody happy with just a smile. She is affectionate, caring and makes friends very easily, she never miss an opportunity to play with other kids. Sarai loves to watch cartoons but also enjoy running around in the yard with our cats and paying with anything water related. We have no doubt that Sarai will be an excellent big sister, she is already very excited to receive a child in our home.

A few years later we tried one more time but lost our little angel at the end of the pregnancy. Even though our losses have been very hard, our desire to grow our family is still there. We know now that adoption is the way we are meant to complete our family. We are a very happy family and it will be a blessing to add a new child to our family through adoption!

Our Leisure Time

Beach Day With Family

We like to spend as much time together as possible. Living on a tropical island gives us the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors all year round! We often go on day trips to the beach, spend the day in the park or just go out to different restaurants. We also enjoy days where we stay home and relax by just watching a movie or playing with our daughter in the yard.

We really enjoy traveling together and exploring new places and cultures. We spend some of our week nights planning our future vacations, doing research for new family friendly destinations.

Karol loves to spend time on her craft room creating cards and party decorations, it is a great opportunity to teach our daughter Sarai to develop her creative side.

Ivan likes to read and on weekends he spends a lot time outside taking care of the lawn. He likes to grow fruits and vegetables in our garden — a hobby he can't wait to share with our children!

Our Cultural Heritage

We are lucky to live in a culturally rich environment that is very accepting and welcoming. Being born in Puerto Rico, a Caribbean island, has provided us the great opportunity to interact with quite a diverse cultural population, in general all families in our Island have a very unique blend. We are extremely proud of our heritage and see a little bit of ourselves in every other race. We understand how important family traditions are and we look forward to learning as much as possible of your child's heritage and traditions so that we can incorporate them into our lives.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We live in Puerto Rico, our home is surrounded by mountains and rivers and the beach is just about 30 minutes away. We have plenty of outdoor activities to do in our leisure time.

Our Little Farm

Our house is located on a hillside in a twelve acre lot with plenty of space to play away from the main street. We were lucky to find a four-bedroom house in the country side just like we wanted, surrounded by nature where we can grow our own fruits and vegetables. We have a big patio where we can entertain our family and friends. We share our house with three cats and we recently started to raise chickens in our backyard.

Most of our neighbors are related which make it a very friendly area. There is a community chapel nearby, the botanical garden, parks, restaurants and stores are just a few minutes away.

We enjoy living in this community, it has been a great place to raise our daughter. We are looking forward to bring a new child into our home.

Our Extended Families

At Church With Ivan's Brother

Family is a very important part of our lives, we decided to stay in our hometown so we can be close to most of our family members. We meet with our respective parents almost every day after they pick our daughter from school. Ivan's family gets together every Sunday after attending mass and spend the afternoon at his grandparents family house where they prepare dinner and chat about their week, we also visit Karol's family since it is located just a few minutes from Ivan's.

Karol's Family

We often get together with our extended family to celebrate birthdays and holidays. During summer time we organize family day trips to the beach and during Christmas we get together on weekend nights to celebrate the holidays as it is a tradition in our island.

Both sides of our family understand our plan to adopt, they are as excited as us to add a new member to the family. We consider ourselves blessed to have a supportive and loving family.

From Us to You

Hello. We are Karol and Ivan and first we want to thank you for considering us as the adoptive family for your baby. We understand this is a difficult situation and we know any decision you make will be purely out of love and courage. We pray every day that you can find comfort and peace on any path you decide to take. We promise to always show respect to you. Your child will always know how valued he/she is and how much love you had to make this decision to provide him/her with a loving family and the best upbringing possible if adoption becomes your final plan. We would love to stay in touch after the adoption is completed and would always be willing to provide you with updates on your child's progress and milestones through pictures and emails or letters, and hope you are open to that as well.

As you make this important and brave decision we want you to know that we are a loving and committed couple. We have been married for over twelve years, we met almost twenty years ago in a church youth group and dated for six years before getting married. Both of our parents have been married for more than 35 years and we look up to them when it comes to marriage and raising a family.

We waited some time to start a family and we were able to get pregnant fairly easy, however pregnancy complications led to an early delivery, our little angel passed away a couple days later. We never lost faith and God blessed us with a smart, joyful little girl, who is our world. After a couple of years we tried one more time to have a baby but again pregnancy complications didn't made it possible. We were heartbroken but even in our pain we understood that adoption was our calling. It is a responsibility and honor that we do not take for granted and welcome with all our hearts. Our journey has had many obstacles, but it has made us stronger and brought us closer together.

We both were raised with very similar strong core values of love, respect and honesty for each other and those around us. We would provide a very stable and caring upbringing for your child. Your child will always know how much he/she is loved and how they where brought into our lives. We are very close with our families and enjoy spending as much time with them as possible, they are excited to welcome another child in their lives as well. Our families will provide a stable environment full of love for your child.

Thank you again for reviewing our profile. It is a true honor to even be considered. We hope to have the opportunity to meet you and tell you more about our family in person and anxiously await the opportunity to welcome you and your little one to our family. We will be praying for you and your child throughout this journey.

Sincerely,

Ivan & Karol
