7: We spend our weekends together and or with family and friends. We work around the house or he likes to spend time on his cars while I am in the kitchen baking and trying out new recipes. I also like to get up early and work out or spend an afternoon shopping. In the summer we love to spend time in our backyard swimming in the pool and entertaining.
8: We love to travel and try to get away at least once a year. Here we are in Italy with a relative of Dominick. | Our favorite trip was to Italy but love visiting South Beach every year.
9: We love to go out to eat a lot either alone or bring our nephews and niece either way we have a great time. Sometimes we love to get all dressed up and other times we love just putting on sweats and going casual. Here we are alone and with two of our nephews, Jack & Liam.
10: We love parties and aren't afraid to dress up and act silly. Here we are at my cousin's wig party she had for Halloween.

I look forward to taking a leave of absence and being a stay at home mom once we adopt our baby, until then I love keeping busy working.
12: Together, Dominick and I feel it is important to provide a loving, supportive and safe home. We also feel it is important to provide an environment where a child can have fun and grow up with opportunities to become whomever he/she chooses to be. It will be our job and honor to provide a child with the love and support necessary to reach his/her every dream.

14: Children are very important to us and I couldn't have asked for a more loving, giving and caring man to raise a child with. He loves children and it shows as the children love spending time with him and are running right behind him as he runs towards the sounds of the ice cream truck as it makes its way down the street. I would have to say that besides my own father, my husband is the most dedicated man that I have ever known and that is why I know in my heart that he will make a wonderful father one day just as my father has been one to me.
15: I have always been around children from babysitting as a young girl to working with them. Not a day goes by that I don't spend some time with a child. Here I am out to lunch with my niece Emily and my nephew Aidan at a backyard party.
16: Here is Dominick with my brother Billy, my Brother in law Brian and my nephews Aidan and Connor at Aidan's communion.
17: I have two brothers, Billy and Patrick and one sister Mary. They all live close by as do my parents and are very excited for Dominick and I. | Dominick is an only child and his parents also live close by. He is very close with his extended family and we see his cousins often. Top photo is my brother Pat, his wife Amy and their daughter Emily.
