Let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Frances. I work as a nurse at a hospital in the New York City area and I make a good living. I enjoy my work and taking care of the patients. I live in a beautiful area in Queens where there are parks, lots of trees, restaurants, and many young families with small children. It is ethnically diverse with people from many different cultures and beliefs. I would love to have my own baby and take walks in the park and around the block. I have a happy life, and I come from a loving family. I promise to be the best possible parent, and for the child to grow up in a loving, stable home filled with hope, warmth and security.

Luis and Carolina
We are Luis and Carolina. We have been together since 1994 and married since 1999. We grew up in Venezuela, and through a scholarship program we ended up attending the same college in the US. We met on our first day of school and soon became best friends. We started dating three years later and have been inseparable ever since. One of our favorite activities is to travel. We believe exposure to new places and cultures stimulates your curiosity, sense of adventure and creativity. Most importantly, gaining an understanding of other cultures promotesself-exploration and helps you grow as a person. In addition, we enjoy spending time in nature, taking long walks, watching movies, visiting art museums and spending time with friends and family. We also share a deep love for animals and enjoy visiting zoos, aquariums and caring for our pets. Besides these activities, Luis also enjoys listening to music, learning about wines and art history. Carolina is an avid reader, loves to cook and enjoys indoor gardening. I (Carolina) would describe Luis as generous, loving, smart and hard working. I (Luis) would describe Carolina as intelligent, funny, loving, tenacious and curious. English Español
Mario and Maria
The reason why we are adopting again is because we enjoy our children very much and want a big family. Our experience as adoptive parents of Sebastian has been wonderful, and has shown us that to raise a child, even one that is not biologically yours, creates ties of unconditional love and pride. To have an opportunity to repeat that experience and welcome another baby into our family is one of the things we want most in life. English Español
I imagine this is a difficult time for you and I hope that learning more about me helps to provide solace. I’ve decided to adopt because it is the best route to parenthood for me as a single person. I have been delighted to witness my sister and friends give birth and adopt over the past few years. Although adopting can be full of anxiety for some, the process has been a time of self-discovery and joy for me.

Vincent and Daisy
When we realized we would not be able to have children of our own, we learned about open adoption. We embraced this concept because we feel that it is important for the child to have a strong sense of identity, by knowing his or her roots. We want our child to grow up to be strong and confident, secure in the knowledge that he or she will always be loved. English Español
