TNF: Tell me about your family. Are you married? Do you have kids?  

MELISSA: We had a civil union on May 30,2010… It was a big wedding. White dresses, ceremony and big party. When NJ made it legal on October 21.. We got married that day by our town mayor. We have Madison who just turned 2 8/20. It took us 2 years to have her but worth the wait. We also are pregnant with # 2 who is due 11-28-2014. His name is Mason Dennis.
