It all began with Love

We have heard it over and over again, it is an incredible site to see your partner in the role as a parent. We have been together for almost 19 years and can honestly say that our love, although unwavering from the beginning, is stronger and deeper with each day that passes. Life will throw you challenges, joys and opportunities and it is how we, as a couple, approach these situations that determines the success and integrity of the relationship. We are filled with pride and happiness as we watch each other in the incredible role of a parent. Without a doubt parenting is the hardest role a person can play in life, it should be, as parents we are solely responsible for nourishing, protecting, teaching and giving unconditional to love these amazing children. Therefore parenting is also the most rewarding role we could ever play, watching our child achieving milestones with determination and pride, developing her beautiful personality, embracing life and new experiences! We are so thankful for the support and love that we give each other as parents, friends and parents through the play of life!

“If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.”
