S: Laurette and Jimi

BC: "A precious baby has come from above to live in your hearts and fill them with love." | Oh and the answers to the trivia questions are; The "giant orange molar monster" is named Gossamer... Fred Flintstone's race car driver name is Goggles Pisano... Snoopy was from the Daisy Hill puppy farm...

FC: Laurette and Jimi

1: Hi, we’re Laurette and Jimi. We met 13 years ago when Laurette came to Jimi's work to pick up an order. A little flirting led to a lunch and then a dinner date. To keep Laurette interested, Jimi gave her "cartoon trivia" questions and gave her one week to call him back with the answer. We dated for 5 years getting to know each other and falling in love and got married 8 years ago. Here's the first trivia question; What's the name of the "giant orange molar monster" from the Bugs Bunny cartoon?

2: Sushi in Disney World... | Rocking the wedding party... | A vacation in paradise...

3: Going to a vintage air show... | Hanging out together down at the shore house... | Christmas at Grandma AnnMarie's house...

4: I would have never thought I’d meet my soul mate at work. But that’s how it happened. Laurette is so special, patient, caring and loving, with a big heart and a lot of love to share. She’s so full of life, whether it’s tending her garden or spending a weekend at the race track she always lives life to the fullest. It would mean so much to her to finally be able to be a mother and share all she has and knows and all the love in her heart with a child. Here's the next trivia question; What was Fred Flintstone's race car driver name? | Gardening at the shore...

5: Driving at Pocono Raceway... | Relaxing in the back yard... | Helping to run the family business...

6: Coming home from a ride... | Reading a good book... | Making home made ravioli...

7: I tease Jimi and say that he’s the world’s best husband but in my eyes he really is. From the beginning I've felt that with him by my side I could tackle anything. He can always make you smile and laugh when you’re having a rough day. Jimi enjoys learning new things, from construction around the house to making an Italian dinner, he can accomplish anything. I know he is looking forward to passing on his knowledge, humor and love and becoming a Dad. | Carving the Thanksgiving turkey...

8: We both come from close, fairly large families. We live close to our parents and make sure we spend time with them often. They are all looking forward to becoming grandparents. In the past few years we’ve lost a few relatives and that has made us realize how important it is to spend time with the ones you love. With that in mind we’re keeping alive family traditions like Christmas and holiday dinners and the simpler things like weekend barbeques. This lets us spend time with aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews and the whole extended family that will all welcome the newest member of our family. | Grandpa John, Grandma AnnMarie, Grandma Marge, Grandma Joanne and Grandpa Bob...

9: Laurette's Dad's family... | Jimi's Mom and Dad's family... | Laurette's Mom's family...

10: We try to do lots of things together and refer to ourselves as “Team Sweet Pea” which is Jimi's nickname for Laurette. Whether its working around the house, going down to our shore house, traveling or just hanging out, by doing things together we feel that we grow stronger as a couple and that helps us build an open and communicative relationship. We think that this ability to work together for a common goal will help us be better, caring, compassionate and loving parents. | Hanging out with Mickey in Disney... | Relaxing with the puppy... | Cooking class...

11: Dinner together... | A gondola ride in Las Vegas... | Christmas at Grandma Marge's...

12: So we hope you’ve enjoyed “getting to know us” a bit from this portfolio. We’re looking forward to meeting you and traveling through the adoption journey together. We understand how difficult your decision to make an adoption plan might be and we hope that feeling comfortable about your child’s future in a loving, caring, safe and open home will ease some of the concerns you may have. Oh and one more trivia question; Where did Snoopy join Charlie Brown's family from? The answers are one page away... | On the Road to Hana, Maui Hawaii...
