Radek and Georgia
We are Radek and Georgia and the child in the pictures is our daughter Stella. We adopted Stella almost four years ago and all of our lives have been changed forever in an amazing way. We are high school sweethearts, both born in central Europe and we moved to Canada as adults in 1998. Radek works as a director of operations in a small local manufacturing company. Since Stella was born Georgia (who worked as an office manager) devotes most of her time to being a full time mom.
We have tried to become parents for more than a decade. After multiple miscarriages, fertility testing, and failed IVF attempts, we have turned to adoption as a method to create our much desired family. Our actual adoption journey started in late November of 2011, when we met our daughter’s birthmom. We have got incredibly blessed and 10 days later our daughter Stella was born. We experienced wide-ranging mixture of feelings, from pure joy for being chosen to adopt a child, to deep anxiety to make sure we adjust successfully to our new role of being parents. Now when looking back, we have to admit that it was the most joyful and fulfilling period of our lives so far. Together with birthmom we could truly rely on the FSGV agency sensitive support and our relationship with the birthmom was established with the full respect to her and our needs and wishes. With all the parties involved, truly cooperating in making the best adoption plan possible and always keeping best interest of the baby in mind, we successfully became parents of a wonderful little girl.
We are now looking forward and hoping to have our family grow further. We are grateful to be given the opportunity to apply for a second adoption to allow both of our children grow up with a sibling. We believe that siblings play a powerful role in child’s development (we both have siblings and are very close with them) and that sibling relationship is likely to be the most enduring in our lives. We think that child can learn a great deal from interaction with their sibling social play, cooperation to empathy.
We live in a good size four bedroom single detached home in a quiet cul-de-sac in Vancouver suburbs. The home that was built in 1994 is located in very family oriented neighborhood and has west facing backyard, fully fenced with a lovely and very private patio off the family room. We have a great play area in the backyard.
Since our daughter was born, our individual hobbies changed and somewhat merged into the stuff we can all do together. Our free time is usually spend as a family time, travelling locally to the cabin in BC interior, or abroad, biking, walking, swimming, reading books or just simply playing. Radek also plays volleyball competitively and Georgia enjoys yoga classes.
Stella is excited with the prospect of having a sibling. She is wonderful being around children and fairly protective of smaller ones. She is happy and healthy child with a great sense of humor and likes to sing, play, read and draw.
Same as with Stella we hope to raise our second child with healthy boundaries, in tolerance and respect to others, while trying hard to provide her or him with the joyful and stress-free childhood.
