Dear Birthmother,

We are Efrain, Gloria, and our 12-year-old son, Edward. We have built a wonderful life together and have been blessed in many ways. The greatest blessing is our son, Edward. He makes us laugh, cry, and act like kids again. We love spending time together as a family. We know the meaning of unconditional love; we were blessed to have twin boys 12 years ago. When our twins were two, we experienced a great tragedy when we lost one of our baby boys. Since then, we have struggled with infertility. We immediately decided that adoption was the right things for us. That was nearly 3 years ago. At the very beginning, the thought of adopting was an exciting idea. Little did we know how difficult it really is….for us, and for you. We have learned a great deal as we have been preparing for this little life to enter the world and join our family. More than ever we have a great respect for you, and other birthparents that sacrifice so much so that their children can have what they cannot provide. We have been going through the adoption process for quite some time, and all of us are extremely excited and eager to have our new beautiful baby girl in our arms!


About Us

We are a happy, fun, healthy and loving married couple who have been together for 12 years. Efrain fell in love with Gloria at first sight. He noticed her smile across the room at a party and did not waste time introducing himself. Gloria didn't fall in love at first sight, but she did meet her one true love. We share a passion for traveling and sports and have made many memories together. We perfectly compliment each other, which makes life exciting. We are each other's strength.


Efrain has been working for the government as an officer for the past 14 years. He loves to play basketball with his brothers and family and is always up for a challenge in sports. He grew up with both his parents who loved him very much and three younger brothers who look up to him for guidance. Gloria has been working in the healthcare service industry for the past 15 years. She is the youngest of three. She has a soft spot for animals and is always looking for ways to help provide a better life for those that are abused, lost or in need of a new home. We also have four dogs that are fun, playful and love to be around children.


We have a smart and kindhearted son, Edward, who is 12 years old. His twin brother, Ethan, passed away when he was two years old. We can't wait to give Edward a baby sister and welcome a special baby girl into our hearts.


Our Home

Our house is welcoming and comfortable with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and a big size backyard with a gated swimming pool. We are in walking distance of two parks and two elementary schools. Our neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. We have wonderful neighbors whom look out for one another. We are also near a library, the Zoo, museums and the shopping mall.


Our Extended Family

We are very close knit with our extended family. We enjoy family gatherings and we getting together as often as we can. We try to never miss important events. When we do get together, it's always a great time. We have learned to cherish our time together. No matter what, we can count on my family to be there for us at the drop of a hat.


Efrain’s parents were married for 26 years, unfortunately his mother passed away a little over 10 years ago and his father never remarried. They had Efrain, his twin bothers and his youngest brother. One of the twins recently married and has one child. Efrain’s youngest brother has been married for 6 years and has three children. Gloria’s parents were married for about 9 years, unfortunately her father passed away very young when Gloria was only 3 years old. Gloria’s mother never remarried and passed away 8 years ago. They had 3 children and Gloria was the youngest. Gloria’s father was previously married and had one daughter but adopted 2 girls with his first wife. Gloria’s oldest brother is married and has 5 children. Her other brother is married and has 4 children.


Our Family Traditions

Our favorite family traditions are celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas. Gloria loves to cook for the family and have them over for Thanksgiving dinner. The most important part of this day for us is to be able to have most of our family together and give them thanks for being there for us during the toughest times. We love Christmas because we celebrate Jesus and his birth. Every year Gloria bakes a cake and has the kids sing, “Happy Birthday Jesus”. We love to see the joy in the kids’ faces when it’s time to open up their gifts. We leave out milk and cookies for Santa and reindeer food for the reindeers. Once our son is off to sleep we make a trail of presents throughout the house, empty Santa’s milk glass and leave cookie crumbs on Santa’s plate. Our son would find all of the food eaten up and a letter from Santa saying, “Thank you for the reindeer food and cookies”.


What Led Us To Adoption

We have talked casually about adoption for many years. But, we never seriously considered it until it was very clear that we would never be able to have another child on our own. We wanted our son to have a sibling, and began the process of having another child. Unfortunately, Gloria had some health issues that made it impossible for us to have any more children. Upon learning the news, we immediately decided that adoption was the right things for us. That was nearly 3 years ago. At the very beginning, the thought of adopting was an exciting idea. Little did we know how difficult it really is….for us, and for you. We have learned a great deal as we have been preparing for this little life to enter the world and join our family. More than ever we have a great respect for you, and other birthparents that sacrifice so much so that their children can have what they cannot provide. We have been going through the adoption process for quite some time, and all of us are extremely excited and eager to have our new beautiful baby girl in our arms!
