We love to travel, explore and be surrounded by nature.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

It brings me peace and reminds me about my family. In particular it makes me think about my parents.

-Eugenio

If I could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of my life, it would be:

Salad (and coconut).

-Flor

Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

still able to get in touch and keep a healthy relationship with us and of course with our child.

-Eugenio

The most special thing I own is...

My grandma's piano, which she used to play when I was a child, and where I learnt to play "For Elise" by her side. Also, her entire and huge library.

If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

I would love to live on a sailboat. I love water. Water is definitely my element. I love nature and sea in particular is where I can find peace.

-Eugenio

My best friend would describe me as...

Present, kind, generous, funny, hard worker and resilient.

-Flor

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

a purpose. And I find purpose in helping others and taking care of those who need care. I couldn't think of better purpose than taking care of my own child.

-Eugenio

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

People that I've loved and are not in this space/time anymore, and my family and friends that live so far away from us. When I was a child, I dreamt on being an astronomer. The cosmos fascinates me.

-Flor

Favorite season and why?

Spring. Everything is about hoping and blooming. Days going warmer and longer. It's the season that shows the results of hard work and wait. It's magical and has all the alchemy and beyond.

-Flor

Dogs or cats?

Dogs. I find in dogs a great example of kindness and companionship. When it comes to loyalty, they are definitely the model to follow.

My favorite place in the World is...

Where my nephews and nieces are.

-Flor

If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

Hate, violence.

-Flor

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

It's quiet and secure, there're a lot of children to play with and has beautiful parks close by. It also has great schools. We moved here with our future children in mind (especially in heart).

-Flor

What is the best word to describe our family?

Kindness.

-Flor

Dogs or cats?

Forever dogs.
