I am a Mormon, Adoptive Father, and Costa Rican Pizza Chef

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman March 18, 2015

This Costa Rican adoptive father talks (in Spanish!) about his family and his belief that there are “no unwanted children, just unfound families.” Whether you understand Spanish or not, watching the video of this loving family of adopted children with their parents is touching, inspiring, and brings a smile to the face. Freddy and his wife enjoy playing and watching sports, traveling, and eating good food — all with their children.

Freddy’s Mormon.org profile boasts of his adopted children and his loving family. This Mormon religion that makes family a priority recognizes — along with its Mormon members — that family can be created biologically or through adoption. And that it really doesn’t matter! Family is family, and bonds are eternal.
