Margaret & Todd

We met in 2016 at a local church during bible study. The first time we saw each other happened to be Todd’s first opportunity at teaching. His testimony intertwined with the study topic ministered directly to Margaret’s heart establishing a connection. In 2017, we would begin courting each other until our marriage on May 26th, 2019.

Margaret unfortunately lost her first child at eight days old but the desire to be a mother never left her heart, it only grew. Todd was never a parent but always had the desire to be a father. After multiple failed attempts both naturally and through IVF, there was a turning point in our lives which we believe lead us here. There was a heart change in us that came through continued prayer and supplication trying to understand which path we should take. During a moment of mutual revelation, through interpretation of biblical scriptures, we concluded that we have been adopted into Gods family through our faith and belief in Jesus Christ. It would only be natural for us to replicate that concept through our own family. For us it is an honor and privilege to be entrusted with raising a child and leading them into adulthood.

Our Lives

We love to spend time with family and friends.  On the weekends we find different things to do like bicycling in the park, walking our dogs, spending time outdoors, gardening, and attending church service in person or online.   During the week we work generally normal business hours.  Todd works fully remotely, and Margaret works a hybrid work schedule.  We love to watch comedy and documentaries. Both of us also have a passion for entrepreneurship as we are working to develop a side business based around custom balloon garlands, dessert tables and full event planning.

Our Family

Todd is an only child and his mom Louise lives 15 minutes away.  His Dad Vinnie lives in Florida with his wife Patricia.  Todd has an abundance of extended friends he calls family.

Margaret is the 7th child of 11 siblings.  Her family lives in NY, NJ, and CT. She has close friends nearby she calls family.

We attend church every Sunday in person or online and do activities and chores around the house on weekends.

We have a great support system of family and friends who stand beside us and pray for us.

We love spending time in our backyard and taking walks around town and in the park.
