What Marie says about Anthony:

Anthony is the kindest person I know and has the biggest heart. He’s always ready to help, whether it’s fixing my sister’s flat tire or shoveling my parents’ driveway. Anthony adores spending time with our seven nieces and one nephew. He often makes up games to play with them. He’s a big kid at heart, which draws the children to him. Anthony loves sports and outdoor activities, and in the summer, he enjoys gardening and barbecuing for our extended family. I also love that Anthony shares my passion for Disney World.

Marie puts her whole heart into everything she does, whether it’s her work, friends, or family. Her passion for art and creativity led her to a career as a graphic designer and hobby photographer. Marie loves spending time outdoors at the family lake house, where she can be found paddle boarding, swimming with her nieces, or walking with our dogs. Marie is a hardworking and incredibly self-driven person. She has a keen eye for style, excelling in fashion, interior design, and making special details stand out. Marie also loves Disney World and cherishes our extended family vacations and the endless memories we create

OUR PETS

MEET OUR DOGS

Meet Ranger and Iggy, our cherished rescue pups! Ranger joined our family in 2015, and we welcomed Iggy in 2016. Both were 11 months old when we brought them home. We absolutely love taking them on long walks around the neighborhood and exploring the hiking trails just five minutes away. Their playful antics bring so much joy to our lives, and we can’t imagine life without them!

OUR HOME & COMMUNITY

We live in a charming town on Long Island, New York, where the beaches are stunning and there are two parks just a short walk away. Our neighborhood is filled with the happy sounds of kids playing, and our quiet street has just three other houses. Our home is cozy and inviting. We have a big backyard, perfect for a little one to run around and enjoy. We also love relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. Inside, the rooms are bright and airy, with lots of space for our family to grow.

THANK YOU

FOR CONSIDERING US

We hope this profile offers a glimpse into our joy-filled life together. We are the best of friends and we are thrilled to be expanding our family through adoption. Our story began in high school, where we even danced together at Anthony’s prom. After college, fate kept bringing us back together, and we often joked about going on a date. One evening, we joined friends on a double date and quickly realized how much we enjoyed each other’s company, discovering our shared values and interests. The rest, as they say, is history. We have now been happily married for 13 years.

We love creating magical memories together and we cant wait to make even more special memories when we have a child. Some of our favorite activities include cooking, gardening, and playing with our dogs. We cherish our vacations, especially those spent with extended family, including our parents, siblings, nieces, and nephew. We are blessed to be surrounded by incredible family and friends who are so excited to welcome a little one with open arms.

As parents, we promise to provide a loving and nurturing home where a child can grow and thrive. We want our future child to explore their own interests and become who they are meant to be. The happiness of our future child will always be our top priority. We will dedicate ourselves to providing love, acceptance, support, and endless laughter. Thank you for considering us as parents. When we are adoptive parents we will always be honest with our child and carefully explain that this decision was so difficult and painful. We want you to know that we are open to any level of contact that you would want after this precious child is born.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We would love the opportunity to learn more about you.

Anthony and Marie
