A Letter from Claude & Hilda
We are a loving couple who are excited to add to our family through adoption. We both love children and after trying to have a child ourselves, we feel the strong call to adopt. We are looking forward to sharing our love and life with your child. We are open to sharing letters, photos, and visits with you if you wish. We hope to hear from you soon!
We have now been married for nearly 9 years and would love the opportunity to become parents through adoption. We would love to share our comforting and Christ-filled home with your child. Our Catholic faith is important to us and we strive to show God’s love to everyone we meet. We are excited to visit the beach, children’s park, and Disneyland as a family!
We enjoy going on walks through our family-friendly neighborhood, going to church together, spending time in our local community, traveling locally and internationally, and watching comedy movies after a yummy home-cooked meal. We are surrounded by supportive family and friends! Your child will have lots of playdates and will travel the world with us on our vacations.
Claude is caring, patient, and loves being around children. He is so supportive and helpful with everything we do. He knows how to take care of people and provides for our family. He is so handy and is able to fix anything, from the heater in the house to the car!
Claude enjoys doing community service, helping with church events, playing music while we are at home (he used to be a DJ as a hobby for weddings and parties!), and doing work around the house. I have seen how he is with the children in our community and he will be such a supportive and loving father.
Hilda is kind, responsible, and is meant to be a mother. The way that she takes care of our family and the people in our community shows how nurturing she is. She would drop anything to help someone in need. She is driven and aspires to always have a positive impact on the people around her. She also is my biggest encourager and inspires me every day to be a better person.
Hilda loves to mentor the younger people around us, take in the beautiful nature of Oregon, listen to audiobooks, sing in our church and work choir, and cook meals for us to enjoy. She looks forward to the opportunity to share her passions and experiences with your child.
We both come from very large families. Some of our family lives here in the United States, but most of our family lives in Africa, who we make sure to visit once a year or every two years. Claude has over 100 cousins! Our families are very supportive of our dreams to adopt and will embrace your child with open arms.
We have created a family through our community here in Oregon. There are a lot of events and we often get together with them. We love to plan a vacation away from home every year, put up Christmas lights on the house, do something special for Christmas Eve (our anniversary), and celebrate our birthdays as a family. We are so excited to celebrate and create new memories with your child!
We have a spacious 5 bedroom home in a lovely family-friendly neighborhood. We have plans to set up a nursery for our child and there is plenty of room for him or her to grow and play!
We are near the Oregon coast and have a regular spot we love to visit during the summer. There are beautiful waterfalls, hiking trails, lakes, and we are so excited to bring our child along on our adventures.
We promise to provide an excellent education, a financially stable household, and encouragement every day. We will support him or her in their dreams and aspirations so they can be the best they can be. We will teach your child to know God loves them and raise them to be successful members of society. Our dream is to become parents and are open to sharing letters, photos, and visits with you if you would be comfortable. We will talk with you soon! To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
