Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear future au pair,
My wife and I wish to adopt children from Colombia sometime in the near future. My wife is from Cali, Colombia, and I am from the area of Washington, DC. We live 20 miles outside of Washington in Fairfax County. I am a government consultant and she works for a Belgian furniture company. We wish to move into a home or townhouse this year that is close to public transportation. We'd 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. Bonus if they are from the Cali, Palmira, or Buga area, because we visit that region once a year and it would be nice to stay in touch. 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 be an assistant who is available to take care of our kids when we are at work, which includes doing light housework.
