Gino and Sharon
We want to firstly thank you for reading our letter. We are honoured you are considering us to be your baby’s adoptive family. This has been a challenging letter to write because we want to express, in so few words, who we are and to assure you that your child will be raised in a loving and nurturing home. We hope this letter along with our profile will show you that we will be loving, open and grateful parents.
Our names are Gino and Sharon and we have been married for eight years. Gino is of Italian descent and was born and raised here in Vancouver. Sharon was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Vancouver at a young age. Sharon can speak Cantonese fluently.
We live in a three bedroom house in a quiet, family-oriented neighbourhood in the City of Vancouver. Both of our families live locally and are very supportive of us being adoptive parents. We are also fortunate to have a large network of friends who have small children of their own. Sharon’s best friend has a two year old daughter and is pregnant with her second child. They often speak of how wonderful it will be when our children can play and grow up together.
We also share our home with two amazingly friendly and affectionate cats. Jules and Vinnie were adopted from the local SPCA. They are both very gentle and love to play with children. As a matter of fact Vinnie thinks he is a dog. He fetches, runs around the house barking at nothing and follows Sharon wherever she goes which has earned him the nickname “the shadow”.
We are a very active couple. We love to enjoy the outdoors all year round. We are avid hikers and in the winter we snow-shoe on the local mountains. Both of us ride our bikes and run regularly. Sharon has completed multiple marathons in different parts of the world. Marathons are long distance (42.2 km) races and each race takes a lot of dedication, training, mental and physical stamina. Because of our energetic lifestyle, we are very health conscious and maintain a very healthful diet. We will continue to be an active family with our child.
Outside our active lifestyle, we share a passion for books, music and travel. We enjoy exploring new places and have travelled all over the world. We feel that it is important for a child to see and experience other parts of the world so he/she can gain a better perspective on life.
Throughout the adoption process we have come to appreciate that it is an asset for a child to understand his/her roots. And because we value family and family connectedness, if you wish for an open relationship, we would be honoured to support that.
In closing, we know we will give your child a loving home filled with laughter, family and friends. We want to assure you we can also provide a financially secure and stable life for your child. We are well established in our careers and earn a comfortable living. We own our house in the City of Vancouver and have minimal debt which gives us the means to provide your child with a life filled with abundance.
Thank you and all the best.
Gino and Sharon
