A Letter from Ramez & Irene
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our family. We are a family of 4 and are excited to answer our call for adoption. We have so much love and patience for children and are excited to grow our family, and receive the blessing of adopting your child. We are thrilled to share family traditions and make memories with your little one. We promise to nurture, raise, cuddle and love your child unconditionally!
We are a loving family built on the Christian faith as our foundation. We have been together and married for 17 years and have 2 children, Monica and Anthony. After experiencing a difficult pregnancy loss, we know that God has been leading us to adoption.
As a family, we love to travel to new and exciting places. Our children love to travel to Europe and learn the history and culture of different countries. We’re also very active and love sports. Basketball and soccer are sports that the children play all year and we just love to cheer and support them. Education is highly regarded and we encourage our children to strive to be the best they know they can be. We love to encourage and develop their social and emotional learning and look forward to doing the same for your child.
Ramez has been the love of my life and best friend for 17 years. He is truly the rock of our family and has been an amazing dad to our children. He’s so full of life and enjoys coaching, teaching young children and playing indoor soccer. He is the strongest and most humble person I know, always caring and putting his family first before himself. I know he will be the best father to your child, always encouraging, loving and allowing him/her to grow in every way. He is looking forward to playing soccer, swimming and traveling to fun places with our new addition.
Irene is the strongest, most beautiful person you will ever meet. She is very motivated and passionate about everything she does. She is an amazing doctor and we all love to call her “super mom”. She has a compassionate heart with a nurturing spirit. She loves to converse, teach and read to young children. Irene puts others first and, in her free time, she loves to cycle and draw.
God has placed in her heart the desire to expand our family through adoption and she is so excited to share the love of Christ with your child. She is looking forward to teaching them the beauty of art and having fun in the kitchen cooking.
We are blessed with 2 wonderful children, Monica and Anthony. Monica, 14, is a funny, smart, loving and caring girl. She has a nurturing personality, loves to make Saturday morning breakfast with us and always hits it off with others! She is so excited about our adoption and looks forward to cuddling, reading stories to and teaching her new sibling how to swim. Anthony is 11. He is kind-hearted, filled with energy and enjoys playing soccer and basketball. He serves in the altar at church and is a well-respected young man. He has been long wanted to be a big brother and is excited to teach his sibling his favorite basketball moves.
Irene’s parents live a few blocks away and they have played such an enormous role in the upbringing of our children. Irene’s mom is a retired elementary school teacher. Irene’s sister lives in Virginia with her husband and 2-year-old toddler. We love spending holidays and special family days with them. Ramez also has a beautiful family whom we love to visit. His brother lives on a lake in Michigan and we always enjoy visiting and hanging out on his dock.
Our home is always filled with love and laughter. We live in a 5 bedroom house in a safe, quiet suburb filled with trees, children riding their bikes and friendly neighbor smiles. It is a very child-friendly house with a spacious backyard, in-ground pool, and a half basketball court. We always have family and friends over, and many times have hosted practices with the entire team. Our basement is a great area to relax and spend time together as a family. There’s a playroom and separate theater room where we love to enjoy popcorn during our family movie nights.
We have 2 small, cuddly dogs, Rocky and Cookie, and they love their belly rubs in the evening!
We promise to shower your child with love, attention, and affection. We promise to make sure he/she has ample opportunities to grow socially, academically and spiritually. We will love your child with all of our hearts and make sure he/she becomes the best person possible under God’s grace. We are open to staying in touch with you through letters, photos, and visits!

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
One interest we have in common is we love to travel together as a family. We eagerly await our yearly summer trip to Aruba where we enjoy each other’s company and soak up the Caribbean sun. Traveling to Paris around Christmas time has also been a favorite family trip we’ve enjoyed for the past few years. Our family is very active and loves sports. Ramez and Anthony's soccer obsession has taken us all the way to Barcelona to watch a live soccer match in Spain.
We are a Christian family built on God's love as our foundation. We truly believe that His grace and mercy are precious gifts. We instill in our children good Christian values as we know that these values will help them become the best person and citizen they were called to be.
|Our Musical Interest|
We love to jam to Pop and Hip-hop music. However, Irene has always loved Jazz music and played the trombone (yes, the trombone!) up until college. Anthony seems to have picked up the same interest and plays the trumpet for his Middle School band.

It is a very child-friendly house with a spacious backyard, in-ground pool, and a half basketball court. We always have family and friends over, and many times have hosted practices with the entire team. Our basement is a great area to relax and spend time together as a family.

Monica and Anthony are such loving and energetic children. They both love spending time with family, especially when Auntie and Uncle are over for family game night! They are mature and responsible, yet young at heart. They have longed for a younger sibling to love and look after.
