• About Us:

      In the summer of 2014, Greg was living as a single man in a small house in his hometown outside of Boston. Edilaine, or as everyone calls her, Edi (pronounced Edgy) is a native of Brazil and had only been in the United States for about a year. While both were standing near each other at a restaurant in Boston, a complete stranger introduced them and the rest is history.

      Fast forward five years and the most beautiful baby boy came in to their world. His name is Giovanni and he is now three years old and the love of their lives.

      Greg owns a residential construction company with his two brothers and Edi is a proud stay-at-home mother to Giovanni and our future children.

    • Our Adoption Story:

      Greg and Edi feel blessed that their lives took the path of adoption, because in the fall of 2019 they welcomed Giovanni. His birth mother was a loving and caring woman that made the courageous decision to create an adoption plan. Greg and Edi are eternally grateful to his birth mother. They are excited to continue growing their family through adoption.

    • Our Hobbies:

      Edi’s hobbies: volunteering, traveling the world, keeping a clean house, her faith, reading, watching the tv show Friends, family parties, hiking, socializing, exercising, relaxing at the beach, and movie nights. Edi is also passionate about early childhood development, which is what she studied in college.

      Greg’s hobbies: fishing, hunting, hiking, traveling (22 countries and 44 states so far), reading, cafes, keeping an immaculate yard, wine making, wood working, antique cars (owner of a restored 1979 Pontiac Trans Am), building things, exercising.

      Gio’s hobbies: His tool bench and tools, mowing the lawn with his father, visiting the construction site, helping his mother vacuum, monster trucks, his leaf blower, going through his fathers tools, exploring absolutely everything, playing with his cousins, reading, and being silly.

    • Qualities Greg and Edi See in Each Other:

      Greg and Edi’s strong point in their relationship is their faith. They have a strong commitment to the Christian faith and it has made them a better couple because of it. They also share the same core values about life. Their morals are on track with each other, as well as their family lifestyle.

      Edi sees Greg as determined, detail oriented, honest, faithful, caring, outgoing, handy, and silly.

      Greg sees Edi as one in a million, loving, generous, completely selfless, funny, having good morals, and having a strong faith in God.

    • Extended Family:

      Greg and Edi are both very close with their extended family. Edi has 39 aunts and uncles and 57 first cousins! Greg’s family is almost all local to where they live, so they see them regularly. There are many family birthday parties and barbeques. Most of Edi’s family is in Brazil and they plan to travel there frequently.

    • Their Home & Neighborhood:

      Greg, Edi and Gio live in a small suburban town on a quiet cul-de-sac street in a house that Greg personally built in 2021. The neighborhood was built by Greg’s grandfather in the 1970’s. The house was designed by Greg’s father. Greg spent countless hours constructing the house with plenty of bedrooms to grow the family!
