We want to start this letter off by letting you know that we have the upmost respect for you. The decision you are about to make must be the one of the hardest in your life. Although we can't say we know how you feel, we do not take your decision lightly. Edgar and I have the deepest respect for you and your family.
We would like to tell you a little bit about ourselves. Edgar and I have been married ten years but have been together for fourteen years. We live in Southern California. I come from a big Latino family. I am the oldest daughter of four girls. I have many cousins, aunts, and uncles’ nieces and nephews. Edgar comes from a smaller Latino family. It’s just him and three sisters, and five nieces. We are both are very family orientated, and close to our families. We started our family with the adoption of our daughter Layla in 2017. We enjoy having BBQs, pool gatherings in the summer. We enjoy time with our sixteen-month-old daughter, & three dogs whom we saved from the shelter. Chance, a Golden Retriever, Snoopy, a multipoo, and Charlie a mixed dog whom we bottle fed, when he was found his eyes were not even open (that’s how young he was) he still is my little fur baby.
I have my bachelor’s degree in Sociology and hope to move forward with obtaining my master’s degree in Social Work. I am currently a stay at home mom. Edgar works full time as a longshoremen mechanic at the Los Angeles port. If we are blessed with becoming parents again, our plan is that Edgar will continue to work nights, and I will stay home and raise our kids.
My parents live a block away from me, and my sisters all live within 5/10 miles away.
In our spare time, we enjoy going to sporting events, having family outings. Edgar and I are huge hockey, and baseball fans. We also enjoy having dinner and movie date nights. We also like to travel. Every year we go on vacation to spend more quality time together and now as a family. We love showing Layla the world.
If it is your desire to meet us. It would be our absolute pleasure in meeting you. Edgar and I are open to whatever form of communication you are comfortable with. Whether it’s in the form of phone calls, emails, or meeting at a disclosed location. We want you to know that even after the baby is born, we want to keep that line of communication open, exchanging pictures, emails, updates as we currently do with Layla's birth mom. You will forever be part of our family. Whatever makes you feel comfortable we are willing to do.
We pray for you and wish you the best in all your future endeavors.
Isela, Edgar & Layla
