Ron & Sonja
We have known each other for 16 years, and started off as friends which has laid the solid foundation we have not only in our marriage but also in parenting our children. Our family operates on unconditional love and devotion to one another- and everyone is excited to welcome this amazing blessing with open arms! We look forward to providing this child with a lifetime full of fun, adventure, and amazing family memories.
Why We Chose Adoption
We chose adoption for many reasons, but the one that stands out immediately is the pure desire to love, honor and devote our lives to raise a beautiful human being that will complete our family. We have a blended family between us. We tried to have a baby together, however had three very devastating losses.
A year after our last loss, we were asked to and given the blessed opportunity to open our home to a foster child for three years. We never hesitated, never looked back and fell head over heals in love, as did our entire extended family. It was one of the most unforgettable experiences of our life. We loved him with every piece of our heart, every ounce of our souls while he was in our home.
Having that precious gift for three years provided us with the unquestionable knowledge that we are here to be parents. We are here to guide, to love and to honor no matter the question of biology. It was a powerful message of where our future is meant to be and we cannot wait to complete our family through adoption!
Our Life Priorities
Our first and most important priority is our family. We both work and have been very successful in what we do however we both make sure that nothing comes before our children and family. We both come from parents that had to work many hours a day and most times seven days a week, and our parents missed out on many of our sporting & school events. Our parents regretted the fact that they missed many things that were important to us as children growing up, we also know how we felt as a child not having our parents there for those events. We both have made it a point to make every effort possible to attend anything big or small for our children. We want our children to know we will stand behind them and support them in everything they will do throughout their life. We don't ever want to regret missing something for our children and we want our children and family to know they can always count on us when they need us most.
We are very aware and confident that our love, dedication and devotion to our children emulates in the smiles and giggles our kids have. We know that the lifestyle we provide will be one that your child will blossom in being the most loved and best human being they can be. True love and continued support exudes a lifetime of success, your child will have this life with us.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
We are blessed with a very solid, devoted, honest and loving marriage. We were best friends first, partners in life forever. We were both each other's confidants for years and knew the value of watching the other go through a difficult time and how they dealt with people along the way.
Sonja About Ron: I absolutely adore the way Ron has opened his heart to my son. Ron became his stepfather, his role model, his "guide to girls" and fellow hunter without hesitation. I watch and listen how Ron's sincere concern for my son's grades, his sports and his happiness is a primary focus. My heart melts as I watch Ron take care of our family, our life, our home and continually spoil us with his unconditional love and devotion.
Ron About Sonja: Sonja is such an amazing wife and mother. I watch how she is with our children and how she puts their needs before her own. Sonja has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met. The way she loves us unconditionally and the way she cares for our family is a quality that can never be duplicated. I tell her all the time that I am truly the luckiest person to ever walk this earth, and it's because of her. She is the most beautiful woman I have ever met inside and out.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a beautiful family oriented community in South Florida. Our house sits in a quiet cul-de-sac with no through traffic, which allows the streets to be filled with neighborhood children playing football, skating or riding bikes. The community is filled with people that have young children who have chosen to reside in a neighborhood that focuses on family life style, education and enjoying the outdoors in a safe, clean and beautiful environment.
Our home is built around the cornerstone of our family beliefs. Our home is full of love, life and laughter, and has a warm cozy feel that makes you feel instantly welcome. We have a four bedroom home, with a large front yard and a back yard with a pool and a large deck that accommodates many of our family gatherings. We have a large family room that is adjacent to our kitchen which allows the family to all be together, regardless if someone is busy in the kitchen or if someone is watching television.
We are surrounded by numerous parks that allow for all ages to do many different sorts of activities. We also have four beautiful dogs that enrich our lives with unconditional love that enjoy taking walks in our ever green neighborhood and parks nearby. Your child would be surrounded by a neighborhood that is built around the needs of children and families, along with the bonus of being so close to Grandma!
Our Extended Families
We are a very close knit family and enjoy spending quality time with one another. We have two sets of grandparents that live within 15 minutes of our home, making babysitting, sporting events, special occasions, game night and family get "togethers" a weekly experience! We know the addition of this child will continue to bring out the love, devotion and compassion we all share. Our weekends include numerous games of LCR at night and attending sports events for our oldest son with ALL family members. We enjoy the fact that our family is one unit, even though they have been brought together through our marriage. Our family is of the belief that you are brought together by choice, not blood. The whole family embraces the true South Florida lifestyle which includes frequent trips on our boats to fish, swim & BBQ. Our children have been raised to appreciate the things that mean the most in life, which to us is your family and spending time together. We believe that our family values and our close family bond will be an amazing fit for your child.
We know when your child joins our family, the laughter, the love and the playtime will be unending. We look forward to adding the pure enjoyment of our newest addition and bless them with every ounce of love, traditions and devotion we have.
From Us to You
You have already made a tremendous decision to bring this child into the world and we respect the fact that you have made the choice to consider adoption. We cannot begin to imagine the difficulty of choosing the right path for you and your child. We would be truly blessed to be gifted the opportunity to take this child into our home, and more importantly into our hearts and the hearts of everyone in our family.
We met 16 years ago, became fast friends, grew into best friends and eventually became romantic six years later. We got married six years ago and have felt very blessed to have found true love with our soul mate. We are each other's balance. Sonja is spunky and talkative, Ron is more reserved and analytical. We still race home after a long day to be together and talk to each other while driving home from work. We believe that how we treat one another every day teaches our children how in turn to treat others. We are affectionate, loving and never pass up the opportunity to tell one another "I love you."
Sonja is the Head of Human Resources for a large privately held organization located throughout the entire state of Florida. She enjoys working with people, and helping them reach their goals and aspirations. Sonja has been in the field of Human Resources for over 20 years. Her love of working with people, being there for the difficult times as well as the celebratory occasions has kept her passion incredibly strong for the field. Her feeling is that being a mom is what makes her great at her job, as you learn how to understand people, know that sometimes people need someone to lean on and have someone that will always be there to encourage you.
Ron is Vice President of Engine Management for one of the largest aviation companies in the world. His love for aviation started as a senior in high school, and has grown ever since. Ron started his passion working originally on helicopters for the Coast Guard, then grew into a quality role for a large aviation parts company where he excelled and progressed in his knowledge and skills and continued working with them for over 18 years. He's now with an engine company that covers needs of the entire globe. His understanding of people and culture has made his success far surpass others as he has learned its the people that need to be heard and serviced, not the parts.
Although we both work hard, our family and friends are always our number one priority. On our weekends we enjoy boating, taking our children to sporting events, watching our children excel in whatever they are passionate about, spending time with our loved ones, or just relaxing at home. Family is home, home is where our hearts exist.
They say it takes a village to raise a child. Our village consists of three sets of loving grandparents, as well as many hilarious and caring aunts, uncles and cousins. All who live anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes away. Each and every one of them is extremely excited to have another child to spoil and love as their own. We have had numerous babysitting offers, even though the child has yet to arrive.
We hope to have the opportunity to meet your child soon. We would also love for the opportunity to get to know you and your family if you so choose. We wholeheartedly understand the need for future contact if you want that. We are completely open to any type of relationship you would like and understand the importance of communication to you in the future.
