We met in 2004 on a blind date that was arranged by a mutual friend. Early on we realized that we had a lot in common. We found each other at the perfect point in our lives and were married in May of 2006. We feel truly blessed to have each other! Our love and faith have molded an amazing marriage with many wonderful memories over the past six years and many dreams for our future. One of those dreams is to raise a family together.
We have tried for a while to have a child and have gone through the pain and disappointment of one miscarriage, but that experience of finding out that we were pregnant made us feel so blessed and excited at the thought of raising a family. That excitement still exists and we know that being parents – no matter how that child enters our hearts and home -- is what is most important. We have both had very positive experiences with adoption through family and friends. Anthony's father and uncle were adopted which brought much happiness to his grandparents. Also, Suzanne's aunt adopted her cousin as an infant. Our family and friends are very excited as we embark on this adoption journey!
I am a very easy going person who always tries to be thankful for the blessings life has given me and make the most out of each day. My strong faith has taught me to trust in God in all things and I accept both the joys and challenges that can come along at any moment. I am at peace in life and feel that I have much love and wisdom to share with a child.
I love running, cooking, and many outdoor summer activities that a child would very much enjoy as well. I especially enjoy cooking, as I remember visiting my grandparents’ house often and seeing my grandfather in front of the stove creating all kinds of fantastic dishes, and passing on his recipes, such as our family’s pasta sauce, to my mother. Spending time creating home-cooked meals whether by following a recipe or using the imagination is an enjoyable way to spend family time.
I have a bachelor’s degree in journalism and now work in customer service for a world-leader of scientific equipment manufacturing and research. We have benefits which include: very family-friendly time off that will allow me to be a hands-on dad; and complimentary tickets to sporting events, July 4th celebrations, theater shows, and amusement resorts. I am very proud of the work that I do and I’m grateful to have a secure job that provides well for my family.
Suzanne: “When I met Anthony one of the things that attracted me to him was the love and respect that he had for his mother and his close relationship with his family. He has the right priorities, putting the people in his life and their needs and feelings first. I love that he really enjoys life and has a positive personality which I can count on to keep me cheerful. He is very dependable and loyal which gives me a strong sense of security, and I know your child will also thrive under the same sense of security. He is open-minded and likes to try new experiences and see new places. He is non-judgmental and sees the positive qualities in people. Anthony will be an excellent father because he is such a kind man and is patient and calm. He has a lot of energy and will enjoy teaching a child academics or sports and spending time outdoors.”
I am excited to be a mom and I would cherish every milestone of raising a child. I believe motherhood is a very special type of joy and fulfillment that a woman cannot get from any other relationship or experience in life.
I grew up in a small rural town with one older brother. I always enjoyed learning and liked school--my uncle thought I could be a 'professional student' and I would if that was a real job ; ). Dance classes were my favorite activity. Spending time with family and friends is a priority for me because my loved ones are so important to me. I like doing home improvement projects and decorating the house. My dad and I are working on making a desk. I have lots of ideas for decorating the bedroom next to ours as a nursery for a baby boy or girl. I enjoy baking and cooking and love holidays and traditions. Spending time with a child making Christmas cookies, having Easter egg hunts, and trick or treating are all occasions I am very much looking forward to. I also enjoy history and, tied into that, working on my family’s genealogy. In my free time, I like to read, shop with my mom, and watch movies with Anthony.
I am an attorney working for a judge as a law clerk. My boss has a “family first” policy and I will always be able to have flexibility in my schedule and put your child ahead of my job. I plan on taking off several months to stay home with a child. I’ve been waiting to be a mom and plan on relishing every development and accomplishment the child makes—I don’t want to miss a thing.
Anthony: “I married Suzanne because she is the person I always dreamed of marrying. She is even-tempered, thoughtful, and kind. It just seemed that it was all meant to be as our marriage is healthy and based on love and trust. She is a lot of fun to spend time with and has her share of hobbies that keep her busy. Her thirst for knowledge of our country's history and interest in politics makes for great conversation that goes beyond the run of the mill chit chat. I find that I can learn a lot from her that I may not seek out on my own. Suzanne would be an outstanding mother. It is so important to her to raise a child with strong, Christian values and watch a little one to become a young adult who would take on the world while serving others with love and compassion.”
We live in a two-story, four-bedroom home in a smaller town in central Pennsylvania that is close to a large university. Our community is the best of both worlds -- a small town feel with the opportunities for concerts, theater, and the arts that a university can offer. There is a great park in our town where families go to feed the ducks and fish. One of the best things about our home is the large kitchen where family and friends can gather for eating or to play cards. We also have a big back yard with plenty of space to play tag, catch fireflies, and to add a swing set or play house.
Our dog Ellie is a Papillion/Chihuahua mix. She is small, about 10 pounds, but has a big personality. She loves to go for walks in the neighborhood and playing and rolling in grass. She is friendly and wonderful with children!
On our first date we realized our families went to the same beach at the Jersey shore, and we have been enjoying going back to the shore together ever since. We also love history and visiting Gettysburg and other places rich in American history. Amusement parks are a lot of fun for us and can’t wait to bring our child to share in the fun! Also, we both enjoy the family-friendly atmosphere of both minor and major league baseball, and would love to spend afternoons and evenings at the ball park, teaching a child about our national pastime. Traveling is something we enjoy and eventually seeing Italy and other parts of Europe is another dream for our future with a child.
We both enjoy cooking and like to cook big meals on Sundays or try new recipes. One of our best recipes is Anthony’s mom’s manicotti which takes hours but is so worth it! We have been hosting Thanksgiving in our home for a few years which has been very important to us. This is a tradition we’d like to continue once we have a child.
FAMILY & FRIENDS...
We are lucky to live close to our families. Suzanne's parents, brother, and his wife are within a one-hour drive so we all visit often. Anthony's mom retired last year, and she is looking forward to visiting us frequently to spend time with a grandchild. She is keeping a little rocking chair that was used by both Anthony and Anthony’s dad for a grandchild to use one day. Your child will be the first grandchild for both sides which is so special.
We enjoy entertaining guests in our home and also visiting friends and family for weekends and holidays. We are honored to be godparents, and we have a godson together and Anthony is also godfather for one of his best friend’s daughter.
FAITH & VALUES...
Our faith is important to us and another key thing we have in common. We are both Catholic, attend church weekly, and will raise a child in Christianity. Our common faith gives our relationship a firm foundation. The church we attend has many young families and a variety of fun programs for children.
We value education but not just in academics. We want to foster whatever natural abilities and talents your child has, be it in school, sports, music, dance, arts or a trade. We look forward to helping your child discover his or her abilities and providing positive encouragement to succeed.
If we are chosen as parents, if you wish, we would be happy to share pictures and updates about your child in the future through phone calls, e-mail or letters. We will share with your child any information about you or your family that you would like. If you do not wish to have contact in the future, we would understand and respect that decision. Please know if we are chosen to be parents for your baby we will make sure your child knows from the beginning that you chose adoption out of love for him or her and you will always hold a special place dear to our hearts.
We can assure you that raising and nurturing your child would be our number one priority. It would be an honor to be the parents of your little one, and we promise to give him or her the very best of ourselves as parents!
Thank you for reading our letter as you make plans for your baby’s future. We hope that you sense our love, excitement and sincerity through our words. We wish you the best in your pregnancy, decisions ahead, and the birth of your baby. We are praying that whatever decision you come to will be one that you can make with confidence and peace in your heart.
