Anka & Maiara
Hi Friend, Thank you so much for reading our profile. We feel so blessed to be in this process of adoption with you. Our hearts are full of love and gratitude for this opportunity and we would love to share our lives with this child if you choose us. It would be a dream come true for us and we are honored to be considered as your child's parents. Many Blessings.
Our Cultural Heritage
We both come from complete different cultural heritages. Anka is from Israel and Maiara is from Argentina. We both grew up with different traditions: Anka grew up celebrating Hanukkah, Shabbat, and many other Jewish holidays while Maiara had more of a Christian upbringing with Baptisms and Christmas celebrations. We both chose to travel in our 20s to explore the world and discover new cultures and diversity. This curiosity took Anka to India, Australia, Europe and South America. Maiara explored New Zealand, Australia, Argentina and Central America.
We met while we were both living in Costa Rica. There we lived and shared with people from all over the world, so cultural diversity became natural and an integrated part of our lives. We both have very good friends from different parts of the world, friends we call family and we rely on as such. We both love and celebrate cultural differences and welcome whoever brings their purest essence to our lives. We are both very open to learn new ways and share our ways with others and we like to incorporate different traditions. Our individual respect for diversity and differences was what made our relationship possible and what makes us stronger together.
Our Leisure Time
Maiara enjoys dancing, yoga, swimming and aerial acrobatics. Maiara loves spending time tending to our sheep and time in her sewing and painting studio at home where she creates nice clothing and paints pieces inspired by nature. She loves sharing all of this with children since she used to teach in alternative schools around the world. She also loves cooking and going on hikes.
Anka is an amazing gardener, he loves spending time outside creating beautiful spaces for us to enjoy. He loves creating vegetable gardens to be able to sustain ourselves. He's a landscaper at heart and he's currently working on building two small ponds on our property to bring more birds and flowers to the landscape. He enjoys woodworking and creating small wooden furniture for the house. He's also a great beekeeper and spends time learning from our bees.
Together we enjoy going on trips and hiking to beautiful places discovering magical spots. We love taking out our kayak to the rivers nearby and exploring around. We also enjoy camping in the wild. Time with friends and family is also very important to us, sharing meals and gatherings around the fire.
We are excited for this child to enjoy time painting big canvases and dancing around the house with us, planting and harvesting the food we'll eat, and learning how to raise animals, as well as enjoying the nature that surrounds us when we go on trips with friends.
Our Family Dream
We have been dreaming about expanding our family for a few years now. Life led us to adoption to do so and although it has been a very intense process at times, we both agree that it has brought us to a solid and strong point as a couple.
We are currently living our dream of having a farm with animals and gardens to sustain us, a dream of creating art pieces and decorating our home with plants and furniture we make ourselves. This dream keeps unfolding with the possibility of this child who will bring endless gifts to our lives and who will show us how to grow together into better humans.
We would like this child to grow healthy, happy and in harmony with who he or she is. Knowing they were very loved even before they were born and that we have been preparing for them long before they were here.
Our House and Neighborhood
Our house is in California, on a six acres of land with lots of deer and many other wildlife around, coexisting with our sheep, our bees and their delicious honey, and our cat. The house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. We love dancing and doing yoga in our living room. The light in the house is amazing because of all the windows, overlooking sunset in the valley. There is also a separate guest house for our family to stay longer periods when they visit. Our home is very spacious with many flowers and plants all around. We also have two large veggie gardens and fruit trees.
The town closeby is very colorful and vibrant. There are many great schools around which attract many families to the area, so there are plenty of activities for children. There are many parks in town and natural reserves and rivers very close where families go for hiking, picnicking or simply for a fun day out. Many of our friends' children are already looking forward to meeting this child and share great moments together.
There are many events around: a dance in the park in summer, many animal fairs, and also farmers markets every weekend where people gather to exchange homegrown goods and is also a great meeting point to socialize. There's also a sports club with a swimming pool and the lake to swim and practice water sports. Halloween and Christmas are also very present in town when they arrive.
Our Extended Families
Since we both come from different backgrounds, our family is very rich in diversity of languages, traditions, music and food, We all enjoy diversity and discovering new traditions. This child will be showered with love from all over the world and our families are extremely happy to receive them.
Kiki is Maiara's niece and goddaughter. She's almost 10 months old and she's starting to walk. When Maiara went to Argentina to meet her, they fell in love with each other immediately. Maiara and her sister video call or speak almost daily, and Kiki looks for Maiara just by hearing her voice on the phone. Soon they will come to visit us.
Anka's family like to have Shabbat dinners, a Jewish dinner party with special meals, candles and songs. Maiara's family like gathering for Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve and have especial meals with music to wait for midnight and receive gifts for Christmas or dance and celebrate the New Year. We both love celebrating any of these when they are around and also with friends who live close by.
When we meet with family we like to have meals or gather around the fire to sing songs and share memories together. We also like to take them to the river to hike or kayak and show them around. Every time we have our family around is really special because they don't live closeby, so we all share the best possible time we can.
From Us to You
Thank you for reading our letter and for your courage to be in this process with us. We feel really humble and tender to be writing to you.
This process has been one of the deepest moments of our lives. After losing two pregnancies and feeling completely hopeless, we finally realized that what we want the most is to be a family together. We love each other and have walked together with understanding and respect for eight years now. We are already a family, we are just waiting for this child to join us.
We met traveling in Costa Rica and after some months of traveling apart, we decided we wanted to be with each other. We've spent eight years exploring life, learning from each other and getting ready for this moment.
Our hearts and our home are ready to receive this child. We are a strong couple with a lot of willingness to learn and to enjoy life with its ups and downs. We are blessed with a life full of adventures in the world, with a family that travels and likes exploring with us, and with many friends from different countries and cultures who like to gather with us and exchange life experiences. And we don't believe in coincidences, we believe that everything happens for a reason: we might have been preparing for your child to come to our family a long time before we even knew we would choose adoption. The paths of life connect and create beauty however they can. Life is a gift, growing and sheltering life is a gift, and the fact that we have the possibility to adopt and that you are choosing to give life to the world is a gift in common that we share.
We believe that life brings us together way before we are born, you and us have been connected for a long time to mother this child in the way we can. We feel you. We feel not only your courage, but also your doubts and fears, that may be different from ours, but in a way quite similar in essence we're sure. We are eternally grateful for this child you are carrying. We thank you for considering us as potential parents for your child and we will do absolutely everything that we can to honor you as a birth mother and as a woman by loving this child with our whole lives and respecting you, his/her birth family and his/her roots forever.
We will be honored to write letters and emails to you and send you photos of this child as they grow, so you can see they are cared for and protected.
We don't know what life will bring in the coming years, but we have the only certainty that we want to make whatever we can to honor and enjoy life with this child. We want to share all the love and gratitude that live in our hearts and make it grow very big.
Life is a mystery worth discovering little by little. We would love for this child to discover gardening, the importance of growing our own food, living in a respectful way with the earth we walk upon, enjoying different cultures, as well as playing while learning languages, music, dancing, all of this with community in a loving and nurturing environment.
Blessings to your life,
Anka & Maiara
