A Letter from Oreste & Catherina

Hello from Georgia! We promise to provide a happy home, loving big brother, and a supportive family for your child to thrive in. Catherina is a first grade teacher and Oreste works from home, so our work schedules easily accommodate family time. We value education, faith, and relationships with loved ones.

We would be honored to adopt a boy or girl of any racial background, and look forward to having another child in our lives to love and nurture. If you’d like, we would enjoy sharing an open adoption with you! We would love to get to know you and the wishes you have for your child’s future.

Esperamos hacer crecer nuestra familia a través de la adopción. ¡Nos encantaría hablar contigo!

About Us

We have been married over 10 happy years and love being mom and dad to our son, Sebastian. We haven’t been able to have more children biologically, and we feel like we’ve been called to adopt our next child.

Together we love:
• Cooking meals
• Road trips
• Dinner at the table each night
• Yoga
• Attending church as a family
• Running our business

About Oreste

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 works from home as an insurance professional. Outside of work, he spends a lot of his time serving our church’s Youth Ministry, planning events, leading the events, and helping the kids. He is so patient and thoughtful with our son and I am excited to watch him be a father to your child.

Oreste likes:

About Catherina

Catherina is the most nurturing mother to our son, Sebastian. She loves being a mother and lights up every time she is around children. Catherina loves her job as a first grade teacher and spending time will the kids. 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. I know she’s excited to share our home with your child!

Catherina likes:
• Baking
• Gardening vegetables & herbs

Our Home in Georgia

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.

Pets: We have a dog named Oliver, who is great with children and loves playing with Sebastian.

Our Family

Our son, Sebastian, is almost 10 years old. 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.

Extended Family: We stay close with our families and get together as often as possible. We love traveling a couple times a year, to places like New York and Georgia, to see our families for the holidays. They are all so excited about our plans to adopt!

Our Promise

We promise to provide your child with a life 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 sharing contact after the adoption, if you’d like, such as with letters, photos, and visits. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

Very thoughtfully, Oreste & Catherina
