Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear future au pair,
My wife, Claudia, and I wish to adopt children from Colombia sometime in the near future. The adoption process can take a year or more and as of October 2020, we haven't gotten started. Clau is from Cali, Colombia, and I am from Annandale, Virginia (10 miles from Washington, DC) where my mother still lives. We live 20 miles outside of Washington in Fairfax County, near the city of Fairfax. I am a government consultant and Clau currently works for a Belgian furniture company. We would like an au pair from Colombia who is interested in helping our future children adapt to American culture while providing a connection to their home country, but we are open to other Spanish-speakers who will share their culture. Bonus if you are from Cali, Palmira, or Buga, because we visit family there once a year and it would be nice to stay in touch. When we are not all doing things together as a family, you will explore the Washington, DC area together with our kids and teach each other English. Since my wife and I both work, we would like our au pair to assist us in taking care of our kids when we are at work, which includes doing light housework and helping out with meals.

Job Description

As of October 2020, we are still one year or more from needing an au pair. We have not even begun the adoption process, which I have heard can take 7 months to 2 years. I am the dreamer and like to imagine how it could be.
We do not know if you will be taking care of pre-school or school age children. toddlers, children, adolescents or young teenagers. Girls, boys, or both. Siblings or two unrelated kids dreaming of a family.
We do not know. You will be au pair #1 for us. This is all very new to us.
That is also why our response rate is 0%. Since we are still over a year from needing an au pair, we have not purchased a membership and we cannot reply to your emails.
