I can describe my wife in so many ways and give you endless reasons why she will be an awesome mom. Her heart, spirit, and bubbly personality are warm, thoughtful, nurturing, and loving. My wife is also a hopeless romantic. She enjoys romantic comedy movies or drama based TV shows, especially those that will make her laugh, cry, and anticipate the “happily-ever-after”. She provides me emotional, mental, spiritual, and financial stability. She embodies compassion and heart-felt sensitivity within our marriage and her contagious laugh can make my darkest days lighter. I am blessed that she is the first person I see each morning and the last person before I lay my head to rest. She is more than my wife, she is my best friend.
Antonette works as a 911 dispatcher, Community Service Officer, and a team member of the Crime Scene Investigation unit for the San Rafael Police Department. Dispatching is her passion, not only because she understands the complexity of community service, but she genuinely loves helping people. Once we made the choice to start our family and because we believe having a more flexible schedule would be beneficial for the baby, for the past three years Antonette has been primarily working as the Community Service Officer. It allows her to create new and interesting events to bridge the gap between the community and law enforcement, also something she is very passionate about.
Antonette also values her relationships as a daughter, sister and aunt (“Tee-Tee"). Not a day goes by that she doesn’t think of, visits with, or call family members just to see how they are doing or ask if they need anything. Quite often our weekends are booked attending our nieces and nephews’ basketball, football, dance, and piano recitals. One of my wife’s favorite things to do is bake. I often find her trying out new recipes just for the fun of it. She is very creative when planning parties, weekend events or social gatherings that aim to bring family together. She has an abundance of love to give to our future son or daughter, and I can’t wait to see her be the awesome mom she was born to be.
