Meet Angela & Oscar!

We met almost five years ago at a mutual friend’s Christmas party and been married for a little over four years. We are originally from Colombia; Oscar has been in the US for seventeen years and Angela for a little over five years. We live in New Hyde Park, Long Island, because we wanted to start a family and this neighborhood met a lot of the requirements that we were looking for such as having a great school district, being safe, and offering a lot of amenities for kids and families. Both of our parents live in Colombia, but Angela’s mother is planning to come live in the US within the next few years. We have always wanted to have children and start a family together and we are very excited to be growing our family through adoption.

Oscar and Angela's Fun Fact
We love making pancakes or French toasts for breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays, barbecuing most weekends during the summer and decorating the house for Christmas.

Our Lives

Oscar loves playing with kids; whenever there are kids around he becomes just another kid. We love visiting friends and family, dining out, spending time outdoors, watching movies together, inviting friends and family over for barbecues, and traveling. We visit Florida frequently to see Angela’s family and always enjoy the beach. We also visit Angela’s family in Lake George frequently where we enjoy the outdoors and fresh air. Angela loves to cook and to try new recipes. We like to enjoy nature, so we like to go the zoo, botanical gardens and animal farms as well as pumpkin and apple picking.

Our Family

Our immediate family lives in Colombia but Angela has extended family living close by. Angela’s cousin, her husband and two kids live only a block away from our house with Angela’s aunt and uncle and they are very close to us. Also, Oscar’s best friend lives with his wife and two kids in Garden City just 5 minutes away from where we live, and they are also very close to us. Angela’s mother comes to visit us twice a year and stays for at least a month. She is planning to permanently move the US within the next couple of years.

Final Thoughts

“We have been blessed in so many ways, and we hope we will soon be blessed with a child to love and cherish as our own. We promise to always strive to provide a loving, stable home with lots of family and friends to surround and love him or her. We hope you will consider us and give us the special honor of raising this child.”
