We met on an internet dating site. After a few back and forth emails, we decided to meet for a Malaysian cuisine dinner date. We lived quite a distance away, so many dates revolved around dining out or movies. Jackie was not into food as much as Anthony was, so experiencing different ethnic cuisines was exciting for her. Before we knew it, we started a weekly routine where every Friday we would enjoy Cuban food. We dated for three years and that’s when we realized we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. We tied the knot with an evening full of food tasting and jazz playing. It was quite romantic! The things we love to do together. Attend food truck events, street fairs, fundraisers, and community festivals. Hike on various waterfall trails and take long walks around the county park. Celebrate our favorite season fall through Halloween haunts, apple/pumpkin picking, and hayrides. Weekend trips to beachy areas or to the lake for a little boating, and attending Broadway Shows.
Our Home & Community
We live in a diverse, suburban community with close-knit neighbors. Our three-bedroom home, has a back deck in a nice fenced yard and a beautiful large enclosed front porch, is located a block away from two schools, the police station, the boys and girls club, and a park. The park contains tennis courts and a track for walking or running. Some benefits of living in this location include the distance from shops, restaurants, schools, the city, and having just about everything you need close enough to not have to be inconvenienced completing tasks
Our Thoughts about Parenting & Adoption
We believe we will be wonderful parents because we are committed to love and cherish your child unconditionally so they feel supported no matter what. We can provide a stable home environment with a well-rounded upbringing through various activities and strong education. We will guide your child through their decisions, but give freedom to make the best choices. We will teach discipline through positive reinforcement and education between right and wrong. We will support your child through the highest level of schooling that they would like to go to, and help make your child’s dreams a realization through support and encouragement.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us! Our desire to be parents is very strong and we will do everything in our power to give your child the best life we can. We understand that what you see here can be overwhelming, but this is only a brief glimpse of who we are and what we have to offer as future parents. Please realize we do not take this decision lightly, but one that will forever connect us. We are excited to learn more about you and if you’re interested, we would love to share more about us.
