Vince and Tom
OUR PROMISE TO YOU:
We promise to be the best parents we can be to your child. To ensure that their upbringing is filled with laughter and loving memories. We vow to be their foundation of support and encouragement throughout their entire life. We can’t fathom the emotions you must be going through, but thank you for considering our family as a safe and stable option for your child.
Vince has been a Police Officer for 5 years. He has a college education in police foundations, along with an assortment of schooling through his prior military career. Tom has been a Police Officer for 6 years. He aslso post secondary schooling in Emergency Management.
We met 7 years ago, and quickly fell in love. In 2020, we got married surrounded by our family and friends. We have always wanted to be fathers and discussed it early on in our relationship. Adoption has always been our first choice in creating our family. We want to raise our children so that they are empowered to be themselves and feel open to talk to us about anything. For both of us, family is the most important aspects of our lives. We want to create a nurturing environment for our child so they have a sense of belonging and always know that they are loved.
We both enjoy baking shows, romantic comedies and documentaries. Tom loves to cook/bake and Vince loves to taste his creations. We both like a variety of music genres. One of the first concerts we went to together was Shania Twain!
We prioritize a healthy lifestyle and strive to maintain balance between fun and work. We travel as often as we can to warm locations, and make sure that every summer has at least two camping trips.
ABOUT OUR FAMILY:
Shortly after we moved in together we rescued our cat, Taylor (7 years), and soon after adopted our Italian Greyhound, Rookie (5 years). Rookie is very affectionate and loves to cuddle with his dads. Rookie is a laid back dog and has been exposed to children many times. We are close with both sides of our extended family. Tom grew up on a small Discovery Island on the West Coast of BC. Tom and Vince make many trips to Tom’s hometown throughout the year to see their family, consisting of Tom’s Mom (Step-Mom), Dad (Step-Mom), and Sister (Brother-in-Law, Niece, Nephew, Niece).
Vince was raised speaking French in a small community outside of Montreal, QC. Tom and Vince travel to Quebec once or twice a year to see their family; which consists of Vince’s Dad (Step-Mom), Mom, and Sister (Brother-in-Law, Nephew, Niece).
Both sides of our families are extremely (and we mean EXTREMELY) excited at the idea of having another little human join our family.
OUR HOME & COMMUNITY:
We recently bought our forever home on Vancouver Island and are excited at the prospect of raising a family in it. We live walking distance to a popular lake, wooded trails, and our backyard provides lots of opportunity for playing! Our home is situated in a safe cul-de-sac that the neighbourhood kids use frequently to ride their bikes and have fun. We respect and value different cultures and are obviously open to different family compositions.
We are comfortable with different levels of openness and would be respectful of any relationship you foresee for yourself and your child. We would be committed to ongoing contact through text messages, phone calls, emails, and visits. We will make sure your child knows they are unconditionally loved from both their birth and adoptive families.
