Hello, and thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better. We know this is a difficult time for you, but we both think that you are a strong, amazing, and special person. We really appreciate being a part of your adoption journey, and whatever you decide, we’re confident that it will be the right decision.
We are Anthony and Renata. Anthony is an airline pilot, and Renata works as an attorney working in finance. We currently live in Manhattan in a very family (and dog) friendly neighborhood. We live not too far from Central Park, where we love to spend our time together taking walks with our dogs, going for a run or a bike ride, and ice skating in the winter. We met (of all places) in the subway ten years ago, and have been married for seven. We have always wanted to be parents, and had been interested in adoption even before we discovered that it would be difficult for us to have children biologically.
Thanks again for considering us as a part of your adoption process. We may not know you yet, but we think the world of you.

Fun Facts about Renata & Anthony
Favorite places: New York, Chicago, Sao Paulo – wherever there are friends and family! However, if we had to narrow it down to just one specific place – it would probably have to be Central Park.
Favorite foods: The only correct answer is pizza. But, if we had to widen it out a bit – food that reminds us of home. Brazilian, Italian and Mediterranean, and of course good Chicago Hot Dogs.
Favorite hobbies: Anthony – Flying and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I’ve been flying since I was 16, and have been training BJJ for two years. Renata – I have always loved dancing and listening to music. I also enjoy taking a nice walk or running outside.
Favorite holidays: Christmas is great, but halloween is where it’s at. The month leading up to halloween we try to watch at least one scary movie per week.
