dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

Thank you so much for taking the time to view our profile. While we cannot imagine the overwhelming emotions you must be feeling, we are honored to be in the position of providing a loving home for your child. A selfless choice like the one you are considering is a blessing for us and for your little one.

We have always and will always be a family-oriented couple. Becoming parents has been a dream of ours since we met. If you decide to bless us with your child, we will provide them with all of the love and support this world has to offer. Our families have helped us make the decision to expand our family, and they, too, will be overjoyed to welcome your child. We have been blessed with so much in life, and we can’t wait to share that same love and opportunity with your child. Traditions like Thanksgiving dinner and opening gifts on Christmas morning helped build our families’ foundations. We are excited to share these special moments with your child as well as create memories of our own.

We know we can provide a loving, supportive, and amazing life for your child. We are excited to get to know you. We hope we can help make your decision easier as you get to know us.

With love,
Patrick & Jeff

We have always and will always be a family-oriented couple. Becoming parents has been a dream of ours since we met.

About Us

We both grew up in very similar households here in Ohio. In college, Jeff graduated with a bachelor’s degree in education and earned his master’s degree in school counseling, and Patrick graduated with both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering. After college, Jeff moved to North Carolina for a few years before moving to Cincinnati, where he met Patrick at a friend’s Christmas party. We immediately connected and knew we were meant for each other. Now Jeff is a high school science teacher, and Patrick is a business owner, property manager, and mechanical engineer. Two years ago, we were blessed with our son, Chance. He was placed in our home as a foster placement, and after about a year, his parents voluntarily surrendered him into our home. We could not be happier to have him as part of our family, and we cannot wait to add to our growing family.

Our Home & Pets

Our downtown home is a beautiful, four-bedroom house with an amazing rooftop deck. We just completed its construction this summer. We love hosting holidays and family dinners here, and the joy of watching our son get together with all of his cousins and play in our living room only solidifies our desire to expand our family. There are several parks, playgrounds, and a beautiful new swimming pool all within blocks of our home. We also have an amazing Bernedoodle named Rayna. She has been an amazing addition to our family, and is best friends with Chance.

Our Extended Family

For us, family always comes first. Any free time we have is spent with family. We are so blessed to have so many siblings, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Patrick is fortunate enough to have almost his entire family here in town. His parents, both brothers, and sister all live in town with their families, so we get to see them all at least once a week. His mom and dad host family dinners every Sunday night too, so we’re guaranteed to get together. On Patrick’s side, we have four nieces and five nephews all under the age of nine, so we gladly babysit, visit, and attend school and sporting events regularly.

Jeff’s younger brother lives in town, and we get to see him almost daily. His older sister, her family, and their parents all live out of town. Even though we don’t live in the same city, holidays and other occasions bring us all together. Since Jeff’s sister is only a couple of hours away, we often make the trip to see her for a weekend. When we aren’t able to all be together, technology allows us to stay connected on a daily basis.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have always wanted a family, and nothing makes us want to adopt more than when we spend time with our nieces and nephews. Whether we are playing dress up or playing with dinosaurs, we always have smiles on our faces. Many of our friends who have gone through the adoption process were able to give us a lot of information and shared their glowing experiences, and this has helped make our decision to adopt that much easier.
