Hello! We are Jackie and Anthony. Although we haven’t met you yet, we want to thank you for your courage in looking into an adoption plan for your precious little one. We value family above anything else and are committed to making sure we have a home filled with love, laughter, and happiness. We cannot imagine what this journey has been for you, but your bravery and compassion to allow us the opportunity to join you and your child is indescribable. It is our hope that by viewing our profile, you are comforted by a peace of mind knowing we will be the most nurturing parents possible. We thank you for taking the time to learn more about us!

About Us

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!

We both together, love to attend food truck events, street fairs, fundraisers, community festivals, hike on various waterfall trails, and take long walks around the county park. We are especially excited to celebrate our favorite season fall through Halloween haunts, apple/pumpkin picking, and hayrides. Or, when we are in need of relaxation escape for the weekend to beachy areas or the lake for a little boating.

Jackie is a customer service representative for a sporting goods distributor. She also works at the local library as an assistant and loves helping people and solving their problems. Whereas, Anthony works as a buyer for a heavy-duty automotive parts distributor. He analyzes root cause issues, maintains inventory levels, and improve processes.

Family Life

We are mainly homebodies, but frequent and enjoy our weekend festivities during the spring, summer, and fall months to support organizations, learn about local cuisine, pick up nifty knick knacks, and have a wonderful time. However, on Friday and Saturday nights, we snuggle in for a movie night. We love to laugh and share silly jokes with each other because laughter is the best medicine. At the same time, we experiment with unique deserts and homecooked meals that fill the house with delicious scents. We look forward to bringing a little one with us to our favorite farm/orchard for apple picking, hayrides, and family themed holiday adventures. Anthony loves to cook while Jackie loves to bake.

We have three cats: Scipio, Luna, and Macy. All of them are very friendly, sweet, and silly in their own way. Luna is shy, Scipio is outgoing, and Macy acts like a little puppy following you all around the house. They are very special and are great around children.

Our Friends and Family

We are fortunate to have most of our family within a three-hour radius. Jackie’s father and sister live thirty minutes away. Jackie’s mother and step-father live two hours away, which is where the lake house is that we go to often. Anthony’s father has passed, but his mother and sister live three hours away. No matter the distance, we enjoy seeing our family (extended included!) as much as we can, especially for holiday events, summer barbecues, and boat rides on the lake. We also have a few long-term friends that we have known for over 25 years. Some of them have children as well. We love catching up over a quick meal or sightseeing at museums, waterfront villages, or aquariums.

Our Home and 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 Message to You

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.

All our Love,
Jackie & Anthony
