S: Kelly and Raul


FC: Kelly and Raul | Getting to Know | Welcome

1: A letter to you: Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about us as you make this important and emotional decision. We cannot imagine the roller coaster of feelings you are experiencing. Through it all, you are selflessly planning the future of your child. We admire your strength and respect for life as you make this important choice. Our road to adoption was one we planned on even before we discovered we were unable to conceive. We do not view adoption as a last resort to parenthood, we see it as a blessing and a miracle! You are part of this miracle, so we welcome any level of openness you seek in this adoption, and whichever you choose, your child will know, through out his or her life, how much they are loved and cherished by you. Your baby will know from the start that you brought him or her into this world and made a courageous sacrifice for their benefit. We hope to make a special connection with you as you view our photo book, but most of all, we pray you will find peace and comfort from the Lord through this tender and selfless decision. Kelly and Raul

2: 10 Years Together | It all started at church... | ...and we fell in love. | 10 years later we love each other more than ever.

3: { | { | LOVE | November 16, 2001 One of the happiest days of our lives.

4: About Kelly by Raul | I am so lucky to have such a wonderful wife! She is my best friend and has been supportive of me since day one. Few people are as fiercely loyal as Kelly is to her family and I know without a doubt that she will be our child's strongest advocate. I am awed by Kelly's dedication to her education and pursuit of becoming a nurse, although being a stay-at-home mom is her greatest desire. She is a natural caregiver which will make her a great mother. My sweet wife is a lover of the arts. She is a poet and a great singer and always sings to our nieces and nephews. As you can see she has a brilliant smile and it is not difficult to make her laugh - she can find humor in almost any situation. This ability has helped us in hard times to always find the good. I have a very empathetic and compassionate wife. She cannot see another suffer or go without, and not be deeply moved. She has a passion for helping children and loved when we ran our church nursery. Kelly is a natural with children, two of her close friends chose her to be godmother. Most of all Kelly yearns for the chance to be a mom and our child will be fortunate to have so great a mother.

5: First and foremost Raul is the love of my life! What I love about him... His Intelligence: Raul always impresses me with his knowledge. As a surgeon, his head is full of information but he continues to learn and study other topics. He is able to read anything and then perform it. He can fix computers, household appliances, and cars. He also teaches Sunday School in Spanish. Personally, I think he is a genius, but don't tell him I told you so. His Motivation: Raul finishes everything he starts. He taught himself how to play the guitar and still continues to practice. He will be a fantastic example of staying on track and accomplishing goals. As a Dad: Raul is so great with children. He loves to play with his nieces and nephews and they love to wrestle him. In the church nursery he was wonderful with the kids. He is very patient and calm yet also fun-loving and playful. As a dad he will be encouraging. He will make learning a priority and ensure our child gets the best education. He will enjoy outings such as camping trips and going out to dinner for a one on one with daddy. He will be an amazing example of a Christian man living the gospel of Jesus Christ. His faith is very important to him and helps him to be a better man, husband, and will guide him as a father. | About Raul by Kelly

7: Why I can't wait to be a mom! By Kelly Being a mom has always been my life long aspiration. Not only being a mom, but being a really great mom! I am so excited to nurture and care for our baby, give him or her little baby massages, sing him or her to sleep, bathe, dress and care for every little need. I am so excited to read to our child, help them get ready for the first day of school, help them with their homework, guide them through their troubles. There is nothing more I want to do in life than to raise a family. I am so ready for all the challenges and blessings! I am beyond excited to watch our child grow up, get to know them as they develop their personalities and be there every step of the way. Our child will always know they are loved and are part of a forever family. I will cherish every moment, every tear, and every smile. | Why I long to be a father. By Raul I look forward to sharing the blessings that I have received with my children. I have a phenomenal wife who will be an awe- some mother, and a profession I love that will allow me to provide for all of my child's needs and more. I am excited to see my child develop their talents and abilities while I encourage them to realize their full potential. My child can expect me to give them lots of hugs and kisses, and to be supportive of them through their hardships and their triumphs in life. They will know dad loves them and will always be there for them.
