Bonjour! We are Firmin and Maggy, welcome to our world of love, faith and adventure! We’ve been married 8 beautiful years. Our lives embody diversity and culture. We reside and go to church in multicultural communities. We are active community organizers, which is how we met. Ten years ago, we met while volunteering at the Embassy in Washington to assist disaster victims. Since then we’ve been two peas in a pod using Gods gifts to serve those in need. We have one son in college (Firmin’s biological son) and also have provided foster care for 4 years caring for 3 different children. We love children and want to grow our family. Firmin and I look forward to creating new memories with our bundle of joy.
Our friends call us the “Power Couple” because of our compassion, commitment and service to our community. We’ve dedicated our lives to acts of service to empower those in need to be the best version of themselves. As first-generation Caribbean Americans, we are blessed with the values of both cultures. We both grew up in NYC where we went to high school.
We both have advanced degrees, are career professionals in STEM fields and love math and science. We are the coolest scientists you’ll ever meet! Firmin is an engineer and Maggy is a clinical researcher. We also work as volunteers in international development to remain connected to improving conditions in developing countries.
Thank you for considering us for this blessing!
As first-generation Caribbean Americans, we are blessed with the values of both cultures from the states and the beautiful traditions of island life. From our music, language, and fun culture, we love sharing our traditions with friends and coworkers. Our values are grounded in the Christian faith where we were born and raised. Church is a big part of our culture, community and way of life. As Christians, we practice our faith through acts of service, community development, volunteerism, and sharing our blessings with those in need. We often serve as a resource for our community and believe that we are our brother’s keeper. We host fun community events and have a Caribbean summer camp for kids to learn science/robotics, Black girl magic seminars, and sports. It’s the highlight of our summer. If you choose us your child will be raised with Christian values, learn to love and serve those in need. We will also empower your child to value education and other values like respect for elders and different cultures.
We are blessed with a dynamic lifestyle filled with creative experiences through travelling around the world. Our Caribbean culture is also filled with fun activities from music to dance; we also speak other languages (Creole, French, and a little Spanish). We have a network of awesome friends who are super smart, fun and filled with knowledge to help groom any child’s upbringing. Our community is quite diverse with people from around the world, especially our church life. We are surrounded by God fearing positive people. Firmin and I also love to dance Salsa, reggae, kompa and other ethnic music. We love to travel and learn about new cultures. We spend our weekends enjoying nature (walking by the water, hiking), live theater, concerts and cultural activities either through the church or community.
We believe in the love of family. We’re open to sharing pictures, emails, texts and calls of our journey with your child. We are also open to meeting once a year with you at the Family Options picnic.
