As the saying goes, "Why wait? When you know, you know." When Mark proposed, we had only been dating for a year and were married four weeks later in 2006. We have three children, one girl and two boys, who are extremely excited to welcome a baby sister. Our kids are all at the right ages where we can give our full attention to a baby. Mark has taken on the role of watching the kids, while Michelle works during the day. This was a very important decision for both of us because we didn't want our kids in daycare. Our family has rescued and fostered over 100 dogs. The whole family gets involved with caring for these dogs; it is such a wonderful experience for the kids. We like to travel, attend sporting events, hang out with family and friends, hiking and going on different adventures. It is never a dull moment with our family. We are always having fun and enjoy being family-centered in everything we do!
Michelle joined the Air Force after graduating high school. After an honorable discharge from the service, Michelle earned her Bachelor of Science and later a Master's in Electrical Engineering. This was a great accomplishment, because she was the first person in her family to get a college degree. Michelle’s favorite hobby is caring for animals. Mark completed his degree in Business Administration after working for the State of Massachusetts Department of Youth Services for 5 years. He currently stays at home with our 5-year-old and works week nights. Mark is a relentless Boston sports fan and enjoys spending time at local fields and parks with our kids.
