Our Story...I am first and foremost the adoptive Mom to my beautiful son, Mateo. I am secondly a self-employed graphic designer who wanted to offer special adoption gifts that honor those touched by the journey of adoption. And what an amazing journey it is - one that transcends all others. My son is the single most wondrous gift I will ever know. That being said, I will try to put into words my thought process behind MHOB...My little man is my sole inspiration for this venture. The idea came to me one day as I watched my son playing with his choo-choo's and I was struck (as I often am) by the miracle of us finding each other, thousands of miles apart, from different countries and cultures. Yet, our lives have come together and we enjoy a bond and connection that is truly inexplicable. I ran through my mind all the incredible people we came in contact with over the course of the year, prior to and during the adoption process, who helped my son and I become a family: my friends, my family, coworkers, clients, my social worker, caseworker, attorney, translator, doctor, notaries, county clerk staff, consulate staff, embassy staff, local adoption coordinator, the INS, my accountant, my bank staff, local, state and federal law enforcement officials, all those behind the scenes that I will never know, and most importantly, my son's birth family and foster family. All these people, in some way, helped in our adoption journey -- all these many hearts who worked in unison so I could one day hold my son in my arms for the first time -- this is when these countless many hearts finally beat as one. And so, that is my story. I am in hopes that one day Many Hearts One Beat(tm), via our adoption gifts, becomes a universal symbol to the adoption community of what can be accomplished when we all work together to bring a family together. A big dream? Sure. And, yes, I am a little fish in a pretty vast pond, but, I look at it this way...my biggest dream has already come true so I think this one has a pretty good shot! I hope you enjoy our adoption gifts! Be Well, Lisa Jacuzzo & Mateo, too!
