A Letter from Oreste & Catherina
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our hopes to adopt a child! We are thrilled to grow our family and promise to provide a Catholic home, loving big brother, and a supportive family for your child to thrive in. We look forward to having another child in our home to love, nurture, and raise. Having an open adoption would be something we would enjoy sharing, and we would love to speak with you!
When we met, we realized that we had so much in common and instantly connected. We now have been married for 9 years and have a beautiful son named Sebastian. After trying to expand our family biologically without success, we feel like God is calling us to adopt.
We have a small photo booth business where we get to serve at local weddings and events. It is so much fun to set it up and give people something to remember! Some of our favorite family activities are cooking meals as a family and eating at the table each night, practicing yoga, taking short road trips to surrounding areas, spending time at our church, and just being together. We would love to include another child in all of our fun and adventures!
Oreste is a loving, kind, and supportive husband and father. He is the foundation of our family and brings everyone together with his caring personality. He is always making Sebastian and I laugh!
Oreste spends a lot of his time working with our church’s Youth Ministry, planning events, leading the events, and spending time with the kids. He also loves watching sports, taking us to games, reading, and eating my delicious baked goods (like cake and cookies!). Watching him parent Sebastian has been one of the highlights of my life. He is so patient and thoughtful with him, and I am excited to watch him be a father to your child.
Catherina is the most nurturing mother to our son, Sebastian. She loves being a mother and lights up every time she is around children. She will drop everything for the ones she loves, helping out when needed. She has a fun-loving personality and enjoys nothing more than making us smile.
Catherina enjoys working in our photo booth business and setting up all the fun props, being a preschool teacher and spending time will the kids, baking my favorite chocolate chip cookies, and gardening vegetables and herbs in the backyard. She is looking forward to sharing our cozy home with your child!
Our 4 bedroom home is in a lovely location in Georgia. We have a fenced in backyard, family friendly neighbors, playgrounds, and a lot of close activities that we like to do as a family. Our home has plenty of space for our children to grow and play, and we have started to set up a nursery for our next little one.
We have a dog named Oliver, who is great with children and loves playing with Sebastian.
We both come from smaller families and make sure to get together as often as possible. Catherina’s father currently lives with us, and it’s so much fun spending a lot of quality time with him. We love traveling a couple of times a year to places like New York and Georgia to see our families for the holidays. They are all so excited to add another member to our family.
Our Son, Sebastian
Our son, Sebastian, is 7. He is a lot like Oreste in how he is so smart and fun to be around! He is passionate, loving, outgoing, and will be a loving big brother! He is excited to share his passions with your child and teach them the ropes.
We promise to provide your child with a home full of love, laughter, and encouragement. We will make sure your child grows up with an excellent education and a faith-filled home. Our home will be a safe, secure, and supportive space for your child to grow into the person he or she is meant to be.
We look forward to speaking with you and hearing the hopes you have for your child. We are open to an open adoption with you through letters, photos, and visits if you wish. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
