We met online in 2012 and have been together for six years. Our relationship has gotten stronger and better with each passing year. We love each other unconditionally.
We have three small dogs: Ollie (an American Cocker Spaniel), Riley (a West Highland Terrier), and Huxley (a Cairn Terrier). They are sweet, loving dogs who love everyone- children included!
WHAT WE LIKE TO DO
Like many people, we have lots of interests! Some of the things we like to spend time doing include going to movies/theatres, gardening in our backyard, cooking, entertaining family and friends, and going on adventures in our community. Whatever it is, we have lots of fun!
Anthony works in the insurance industry. He has worked in it for the last 20 years. Currently, he is in a leadership role and loves what he does.
Chad works as a professor in education. He teachers students who will be future teachers or who are currently teachers. His focus is on early childhood and elementary literacy education. Chad was a former reading teacher in an elementary school for several years.
SPENDING TIME WITH FAMILY
We love spending time with our families! The holidays give us important time for our families where we share time, food, and laughter together.
Our home is located in a residential neighborhood in Mid-Michigan. We love our home! It is a two-story home with lots of room to grow and huge fenced backyard.
There is lots of nearby fun (a park with a playground within walking distance; kid-friendly museums and places; the zoo). We are just a short drive away, less than 10 minutes, from hospitals, shopping, and our doctor's office.

I love how Anthony is just Anthony (I call him Tony): he is funny, smart, and kind. He doesn't take himself too seriously (though, he's more serious than me!). We have lots of fun together!
Tony will be an excellent father- in this, I have no doubts. I see his strengths in parenting are his love, patience, and good humor.
He is great with children. He has nieces and a nephew who adore him. He is a steady, welcoming person to all children.

Chad is responsible, loving, and supportive. He has a great sense of humor and is adventurous! Chad is always fun: he loves to travel, cook, go to movies/theatres, and spending time with me, the dogs, and family. He always nudges me in new ways.
Chad will be a great dad as he was/is a teacher- all of his experiences with younger children (from siblings to other children to his natural ease and engagement with all children. I'm excited to see him as a parent!
