Bob, Karin & Anthony Moragues
Dad and Anthony ride the roller coaster

Everything is magical when seen through the eyes of a child and we love every minute of his
discovery and growth. We were avid campers before Anthony was born and now enjoy teaching
him the beauty of camping while we re-discover the simple joys of finding banana slugs,
splashing in streams and roasting marshmallows. We have memberships at the children’s museum
and the local amusement park and zoo where Anthony once rode the roller coaster four times in a
row. Being a parent is more than fun and games, though. Parenthood is family dinners and
Saturday morning pancakes, just one more bedtime story and holding him tight when he’s scared.
We truly value our relationship with Anthony’s
birth family. They only live an hour away, which
allows for regular visits. I know that his
birthmother enjoys watching him grow up and I
look forward to showing him off at our next visit.
Anthony has six birth siblings and he is
inseparable from his two oldest sisters when we
Anthony isn’t the only child in our family who
was adopted! Bob’s brother and his wife adopted
a little boy only a year younger than Anthony. Bob
also has three cousins who were adopted.
Adoption is an accepted and normal part of our
extended family’s life.
