It’s a Boy! The Ramirez Family Receives the Gift of a Lifetime

1st of June 2018


Receiving unconditional love from a supportive family changes an abandoned child’s life forever. At Trinity Youth Services, adoptions are always special times when we celebrate the union of a family and their new child. Helping a child in need connect with their forever family is always a joyous occasion! We are thrilled to announce the adorable new addition to the Ramirez family!

The Ramirez family fell in love with one-and-a-half-year-old Eddie, a happy, healthy and energetic baby boy. On adoption day, Hector, Eddie’s adoptive father, revealed that he was happy and was almost ready to cry. The close-knit family was all smiles during the adoption proceeding, Eddie was very active, smiling and playing with his other family members, including an aunt who provided him with a lot of affection and attention.

Hailing from Riverside, the Ramirezes are a loving couple who have been fostering for three years. They decided to become resource parents after witnessing a close family member’s positive experiences with foster care. “My sister adopted her foster child, and he ended up being a good kid,” Hector explained.

With love and excitement beaming from his eyes, Hector, when asked about the advice he’d give to those considering fostering or adopting, he answered, “I’d recommend babysitting, reading a couple of books to know what to expect long term. It’s pretty much instinct, I think. When you have your first child, you don’t have books that train you on how to be a parent, but you learn as you go.”

After the court hearing, the Ramirez family cried tears of joy. Hector stated that he was very grateful that he and his family had finally made it through the adoption process. He also revealed how he felt about his adoption experience with Trinity.

“We loved it. They are great people. They work with us. If we have any questions, they’re there to answer them. It’s been perfect. Our social worker has been great. We haven’t had any bad experiences, just a good experience. If you love kids, it’s good to be a foster parent and adopt. If you enjoy kids, adoption is perfect for you,” Hector said.

It’s clear that the Ramirezes have a lot of love in their hearts for children. They are planning to adopt their other foster child in the near future. For more information about becoming a foster or adoptive parent, call 888.346.9645 or email
