Hi! We wish we could just sit and chat with you, but we suppose this will have to do for now. The decisions you are about to make are some of the hardest you will ever face. We want you to know that we are praying that God bless you and whoever you pick even if it isn’t us. Our hope is that this book will show you what our family is like, what we stand for, and what we love to do.
About Our Family
We are Anne Marie and Joe, a fun loving couple that values family above all. We are high school sweethearts and married shortly after we finished college. Mason (6) and Chase (3) are our two amazing boys who fill our life with love and laughter.
We love spending time together as a family. Some of our favorite activities include playing outside, going to the park, working on craft projects and baking up new desserts. Our families are a very important part of our life, we love visiting with them and spending time together. We are also active in our local church as we feel the most important thing we can instill in our children is their faith in God.
What Are Our Occupations?
Anne Marie is the director of marketing at a consumer products company and has a degree in marketing and advertising. Joe is chemist and works for the government studying the effects of tobacco on health. Joe has a masters degree in chemistry.
Where Do We Live?
Our two-story home sits in a suburban setting in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood that is close to parks and schools. Our home has 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a large kitchen and eating area, and a finished basement with a playroom for the kids. The backyard has a swing-set for the kids and overlooks a horse farm. We love to spend time in the backyard playing games and having friends over for cookouts.
Our family is filled with love, laughter and adventure; however, our journey to grow our family has been a long and challenging one. We’ve always wanted a big family but we were faced with infertility issues and it took us many years to have children. We have been very blessed to have two healthy boys, but we feel that we have more love to give and God had led us to adoption as a way to share our love.
Our world is centered around family and we know the abundant amount of love waiting for this sweet baby. We could never thank you enough for your selfless act that will allow our family to grow.
