Thank you for viewing our profile. We are profoundly grateful and honored that you are considering us as parents for your beautiful child. We know this decision is not an easy one for you, and we are thankful to go through this period of your life with you. We look forward to meeting and getting to know you and to share in this tremendous sacrifice you are about to make.
We are Robert and Althea and we are very excited about being able to adopt and share our love and home with a beautiful baby. Our child will be raised in a home filled with love, laughter, fun activities, great education and community involvement. Community involvement is important to us as we volunteer a couple times a month. Activities we enjoy are travelling, tennis, going to different zoos, going to the park and taking Bailee, our golden/lab mix, to the doggie beach. We look forward to our little bundle of joy experiencing the same as we continue to travel and explore different states and countries.
We met online in April of 2009, and courted online through emails for a month before deciding to meet in person. Our first date was dinner and a movie. After our second date, Robert knew he had met the love of his life and bought her engagement ring. Robert proposed on stage at a beach resort with hundreds of people in attendance. We said our "I do's" in August of 2009, in front our close family and friends. It was a beautiful day and intimate ceremony. Our 6 year anniversary was just celebrated at our favorite Jamaican restaurant. We now can't wait to add a beautiful child to our lives.
Jasmine is Robert's 13 year old daughter. She lives with her mom and spends vacations with us. Jasmine is a very intelligent, vibrant young lady and a great student. She plays the flute in a band at her school and aspires to be a Gynecologist. She loves hanging out with Bailee. When she visits, she enjoys going to work with her step-mom and shopping with her.
Bailee is our Golden/lab mix that Althea adopted from a rescue shelter in our town. She was a birthday gift for Robert in 2010. She is now 5 years old and loves adults and kids. A couple of things she also enjoys is playing in the water and going to work with Althea. You can find her snuggled up most days with her toy on her couch. Although she loves playing in the water, she is terrified of thunder; this most certainly will find her hiding in the closet.
Althea By Robert
My darling wife is Jamaican by birth. She is very passionate, driven, fun to be with, and very caring. She volunteers for several organizations in our town. Her work as a Pedorthist is one of her passions, as she puts it, "what work"? She wholehearted believes in find something you love to do and you will never work a day in your life. She loves to exercise (running in particular) and eats healthy, except when there's bread or chocolate around. I enjoy watching her when we go to country music concerts and NASCAR races; its pure gold. Of course, like most women, she loves shoes. Her cup is always half full, which is a tremendous trait to experience in a person. I love her completely.

Robert By Althea
Robert, my dashing husband is hardworking, loving, and makes me laugh all the time. I prayed for the kind of man he is, and the prayers were answered. He is an honorable man who served his country in the military for 8 years. Apart from work, which is managing a retail department store, he is a sports buff--all sports. You will find him in fantasy leagues for football, baseball and basketball, and he is also an avid hockey fan. What I think stands out the most though is, he will take me to NASCAR races, country music concerts, even though it's not his cup of tea. Earlier this year, he participated in a 5K race with me for charity. He is so giving and will make a great father to our baby.
