About us


Hi! We are Michael and Maureen. Thank you for taking the time to read this. We met online about 12 years ago, way before all the dating websites. We took our time to get to know each other, and after several months we finally had a phone conversation. We met the next day at a Friendly's (for ice cream) and it really came down to chemistry (obviously it was a connection because Michael asked Maureen that night 3 times to marry him). We clicked right away and have been together ever since. We knew so much about each other, Michael from a loving Italian family and Maureen from a loving LOUD Irish family.  Two years later we were engaged at a restaurant in front of our family and friends. About a year later we were married in a Christmas themed wedding. We were lucky/blessed to have over 200 people to be there and had people travel to come from as far away as Ireland. It was a big event for both of our families who came together that day and continue to do so to celebrate events and holidays together since! We have many family traditions we all do together, Easter egg hunts, Rise of the Jack O' Lantern's at Halloween, getting our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving, going to Yankee games together and many, many more!
It is about 10 years later and after  numerous failed fertility treatments, we love each other more today, than the day we were married. We have considered adoption for the past 2 1/2 years and our families can barely contain their excitement for us. Even since before getting married we always talked about having a family. We are surrounded by a huge family, our parents, brothers and sisters and our 12 nieces and nephews. We love going to the movies, amusement parks (especially Disney), traveling and just spending quality time together. We have two cats Marvin and Marty and live in quaint town in close proximity to our families. Michael is a Graphic Designer (which he is in great demand with our family due to the many birthdays and parties). He has been in the field for over 15 years and does a lot of freelance on the side. Maureen works for a large hospital on Long Island and oversees several doctors offices and staff. We both love our jobs!
We can't wait until we  have a baby to complete our family!

our home

We live in a small beautiful town on Long Island, NY. From our house we can walk or ride our bikes to the park, library, restaurants or down to the water to see boats passing by. We chose this town for it's "homey" feeling, top rated school district and closeness to our families.

We bought our house 2 years ago with our future family in mind. It is a 3 bedroom split level home. We have a big back yard for children to play. We often have our nieces and nephews over and love to play catch, wiffel ball, soccer and tag. We have a patio where they can use chalk to be creative or just make a hopscotch board. We have BBQ's and parties...you can always hear someone laughing!
We live close to several Catholic Churches. We attend weekly mass and it has been our tradition since we met to go to Christmas Eve Midnight mass. 

By car we can visit the aquarium, beaches and sporting events (we are both born and bread NY Yankee fans). We are also a train ride away from New York City where we enjoy Broadway plays, restaurants, Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, or just to take in NY history or it's monuments.

Our town hosts several events throughout the year. They have festivals and carnivals, shows and exhibits,kids and family craft fairs, holiday parades, Easter Egg hunts, a pumpkin patch for Halloween and a Christmas tree lighting.
