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 decision like the one you are considering is a blessing for us.
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 start a family of our own, 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’ foundation. 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.
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 a bachelor’s and master’s degree 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. We both value family above all else and dream of building a family of our own. There is nothing we enjoy more than spending time with each other and our clans. Hopefully, we will get to share our love with a child soon.
We have lived together in our downtown condo for three years, and Patrick has been here for six. It is a beautiful, three-bedroom home with an amazing rooftop deck. We love hosting holidays and family dinners here, and the joy of watching our nieces and nephews play together in our living room only solidifies our desire to have a family of our own. There are several parks, playgrounds, and a beautiful new swimming pool all within blocks of our condo. In the fall of 2018, we unfortunately had to put our dog down. In the future, we hope to welcome another dog into our family.
Our Extended Family
For us, family always comes first. Any free time that we have, we love to spend it 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, older brother, 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 dinner every Sunday night, too, so we’re guaranteed to get together. On Patrick’s side, we have three nieces and two nephews all under the age of six, 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.
