Hi! Thanks for getting to know us through our adoption page. We are Tommy and Jennie. We met through Tommy’s sister, Katie. Katie was Jenni’s supervisor at the time and continued to tell both Tommy and Jenni how much they have in common and how they needed to meet. In 2014, Tommy reached out to Jenni through text message which progressed to phone calls and then finally meeting in person. Once we finally met in person, we continued to spend every weekend together from then on since we were living in different states. Living in different states encouraged communication but made us miss each other. After a year of long distance dating Jenni moved to New Jersey from Pennsylvania. In 2016 we were engaged and married one year later. In 2019 we celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary. We continue to live in New Jersey and travel to Pennsylvania to also spend time with Jenni’s family. We are now looking to expand from a couple to a family of our own.
As people, and a family, we pride ourselves on being honest, loving, loyal, and hardworking individuals. We constantly strive to support each other and do whatever we can for our family and each other. We were raised Catholic and continue to practice our faith. Our hope is to raise our future child in the Catholic religion, while being respectful and educating our child about their birth family’s religion, if it is different than our own.
We love to spend time with family on holidays and special occasions. We enjoy surrounding ourselves with people we love and care about and take every opportunity we can to do so. This includes not only holidays but regular weekends to Pennsylvania for extra time with family.
We have an 8 year old dog, Hercules. He is friendly, sweet, and most importantly, cuddly. He spends time with other dogs and children and is great around both!
We live in a suburban neighborhood near the beach. In the summers we spend time at the beach with friends and family and love going in the ocean. Every Friday, we spend time eating pizza on the beach to reflect on our week. Most often, you can find us in the woods hunting with Jenni’s family. We love home improvement projects and doing them together. Every night we take Hercules for a walk together.
We have discussed at length our level of comfort and have consistently repeated the importance of our child knowing everything they can about themselves and embracing adoption. It is something that makes them special and special to us. Therefore, we are open to all forms of contact that you also feels comfortable with. We hope to respect your wishes while joining you with our ideas and creating the most loving environment for our child.
Although we do not currently have a diverse family, our hearts and minds are open and welcome diversity. It would be an important aspect of our child’s life to educate them and immerse them in their ethnic background’s traditions. It would also be important, for us as parents, to educate ourselves in all aspects of our child’s birth family’s origins, religions, and cultures.
