Meet Our Adoptive Parents - The Rodriguez Family

Wanda and Porfirio Rodriguez say they’ve been given a brand-new life.

A couple of years ago, the couple discovered they had an infant grandson named Amauri and began caring for him. This Friday, Nov. 22., they’re officially welcoming him into their family at the National Adoption Day celebration.

Parenting has been especially meaningful for Porfirio, who felt he missed out on his own children’s upbringing because his job as a truck driver kept him away from home. Now, he’s enjoying the experience of raising a lively toddler.

The couple hopes that Amauri’s biological parents will remain active in his life.
