Thank you for considering us as loving parents for your child. We want you to know that our dream is to grow our family and we are excited to welcome your child into our home, with all the love and happiness we have in our hearts. The choice you are making is likely one of the hardest of your life and what you are considering is the most generous of acts that anyone can possibly do for an adoptive couple like us. Without a doubt, this will not be easy and we commend you on your bravery. We hope that we can be a part of your journey and give you peace with your decision.
We were born and raised in Puerto Rico. We met online when Geoffrey moved to Florida and started a friendship; then we arranged to meet at Disney World and right away we both knew we were meant to be. On my second visit to Florida, he proposed (at Disney!) and the rest is history. We have been married for 10 years and it has been an amazing journey. We enjoy traveling, cruising, going to the beach, host game nights and nearly every weekend, you can find us at Disney, their water parks and resorts. Ellaine comes from a close-knit family. She loves shopping, crafting and baking. Geoffrey is the youngest of 6 siblings. He cycles every week in the neighborhood and at Florida trails. He also spends time in the garage enhancing his car or working in projects. Geoffrey works as a System Administrator for a pharmaceutical. He likes how challenging his work is and the financial stability that provides. Ellaine works as a Quality Auditor for a Health Care Insurance and loves the flexibility her job offers being able to work from home.
Our Home and Pets…
We live in a safe family-oriented neighborhood in Central Florida, with many parks, beaches and amusements within driving distance. Our home has 4 big bedrooms and a huge yard. Our school district has great schools. On Halloween, we get together at our neighbor’s home to welcome the kids and give candy. During Christmas, the community goes all out with home decorating. In addition, our home is filled with family fun gatherings to celebrate birthdays, barbecue parties, game nights, and any other family events throughout the year. We love our cozy home and the only thing missing is a child to share it with! We don’t have pets, but all of our siblings have dogs.
We are extremely blessed to have a large family that’s fun and loves spending time together. More importantly, all of our family members and close friends are supportive of our adoption journey and are thrilled to be a part of our child’s life. We are fortunate to have Ellaine’s parents living close-by. They are retired teachers and live less than five minutes away. Three of Geoffrey’s siblings live in Upstate New York and we love to visit them during the holidays…a perfect excuse to see SNOW! Two of his siblings live here in Florida. Ellaine has 1 sister who lives in Puerto Rico but she comes down to visit many times per year. Our friends are family, we love getting to spend time with each other. All of our friends have children so it’s like we have even more nieces and nephews (two of them were adopted just a month ago).
Our Journey to Adoption…
From the beginning, we’ve always known we wanted children and been excited to start a family. Being unable to conceive a child on our own has not diminished our hopes and dreams of someday being parents. Our experience with infertility has strengthened our marriage and deepened our faith.
