Thanks so much, Joao Nascimento.

Of course, we didn’t set out to change our lifestyle or even to become parents. Everything snuck up on us, one unplanned step at a time.

By the time we realized what we’d gotten ourselves into, we had already become a family in our hearts.

There was no going back.
