15: Our life is full of love family and friends
18: [ Our life is filled with lots of love and laughter. Our desire is to be able to share everything we have with a child which would enable us to see life in a new way. We were both raised in great family environments, with great parents and brothers and sisters.
19: We have learned about the importance of family, friendships and being part of our community. We have also learned how important experiencing the world and education are. We want to model this for our child, and offer them everything in life that we have been fortunate enough to have experienced.

24: Monica is by far among the most beautiful people in the world, inside and out. Her love and caring for others seems to have no bounds. She is always concerned about the well being and happiness of others ahead of her own. Anything and everything from using her own vehicle and time to transport her students during school field trips to coordinating her parents anniversary party while not even in the same province. | My initial attraction to her was her friendly caring smile, genuine outgoing character and competitive attitude. Monica is a winner who strives to be great but not at the expense of enjoying the ride or by climbing over the backs of others. I knew almost immediately that with Monica I had met someone special. Solid outstanding family values, an excellent work ethic and a willingness to sacrifice for to create a foundation and environment to raise a child.This was someone that I knew I would want to raise a child with.
25: Her affection and love for children is the greatest I have seen in anyone. A child can hardly walk, bike or crawl by without a comment. When among our family and friends, wherever the children are you can be sure that Monica is not far behind if not in the middle of all. | There is no doubt in my mind that Monica is ready, willing and able to take on the incredible challenge of becoming a mother. She has prepared mentally and physically in ways that I had never even imagined, from play dates, daycare and clothing selection through educational allowances, child proofing techniques and nutritional requirements. The way she sets rules and limits are not only realistic and reasonable, they form an essential foundation for a good home where children will know what is right, wrong and expected. She teaches children basic life skills from ensuring they share their toys to the importance of education and caring about the feelings of others. Making sure that kids are able to go on school trips by providing them with appropriate clothes and equipment when they don't have the required items themselves.
26: Kyle is the love of my life and my best friend. He is a fun, loving and caring individual who keeps me smiling. As I got to know him and saw his thoughtfulness, gentleness and love for his mother, I could see that he would treat me the same and it only made me love him more. He is always there to help me, our family or friends. He is a hard worker, yet always makes time to enjoy life. When we are hanging out with family or friends Kyle is right in there with the children hands on with the toys, playing hockey, or any other game that may be around. | He is creative, especially when he is designing the outdoor Christmas or Halloween decorations, something he would definitely like to share with his son or daughter. The children in the neighborhood not only enjoy the decorations on these occasions, they have fun joking around with him. I cannot say how many times I have heard them say“I am coming back to this house next year for sure.”
27: He has a big heart for children, animals and life overall. I can only imagine him walking with the little one in the stroller and the dog by his side, telling them both stories. I am sure that animals in many ways will be a big part of everyday life. They will enjoy visiting the zoo, aquarium and pet stores often, and hanging out with whatever little critters managed to make it through the front door. While we both like to be outdoors and active, we also enjoy quiet time at home making meals together watching a hockey game, a movie, or working on a project in the house together. He is so excited to have a baby to cuddle, sing to, and be part of their growing and experiencing life. All of these characteristics will make him a fantastic father.
28: Live well, laugh often, love much
