dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We want to start off by saying how grateful and thankful we are for you reading our profile and for hopefully considering us for the incredible blessing of growing our family with your child. While we will never fully understand your sacrifice, we do admire the tremendous amount of strength, love, courage, and trust that has led you to consider adoption.

Our promise to you, should you choose us, is that your child will be raised in a home full of love, laughter, and adventure. We will instill in your child the values with which we were raised. Not only will your child be treated with respect, honesty, and loyalty but they will also learn to practice these values themselves as they grow. We will do everything in our power to ensure that your child has limitless opportunities, financial stability, and endless support for whichever path they choose in life. He or she will forever and always be loved and undoubtedly know how strong and selfless you are.

Thank you for considering us in this selfless decision. If you choose us, you can rest assured your child is in the best of care and will constantly be surrounded with love, family, and friends. It would be a true honor to be able to raise your child.

Forever grateful,
Patrick & Wesley

Our promise to you, should you choose us, is that your child will be raised in a home full of love, laughter, and adventure.

About Us

We are Wesley and Patrick. We’re both Illinois born and raised. Wesley works as a general sales and finance manager for a local car dealership, and Patrick works as a business system manager for a bank. We are both very hard workers but always make time for each other, family, and friends. We met in June of 2015 and hit it off instantly. Since then, we have been in a loving and committed relationship and just recently celebrated our first year of marriage! Wesley enjoys musicals, decorating, and cars, while Patrick enjoys spending time outdoors, watching movies, and going to amusement parks. We both enjoy spending time with our neighbors and friends, playing games, and traveling. We love our home, our fur-children, and the life we have built for ourselves. We are more than excited for the next chapter in our lives and growing our family!

Our Home & Pets

We built our home in 2017 with the expectation that at some point we would be able to add a little one to our family. Our home is a two-story, four-bedroom, 2.5-bath home with a large fenced-in yard where our three wonderful dogs (Jolie, Benjamin and Zoey) enjoy running around. We spend a lot of time with our neighbors turned friends, hosting “family” dinners at each other’s houses, having game nights, and enjoying each other’s company. Not only is our neighborhood great but so is our town, which is known for its excellent school district. We are minutes from a hiking/biking trail we use frequently.

Our Extended Family

Family is very important to both of us. Not a birthday, graduation, holiday, or any special event goes by without everyone getting together to celebrate. Patrick is the middle child with both an older and younger sister. All of Patrick’s immediate family lives less than two miles from our home. In addition, Wesley’s father, stepmother, and brother all live less than a mile away. Wesley is also the middle child, with an older sister and younger brother. Wesley’s mother and stepfather live in a neighboring city with hopes of moving even closer someday. Wesley’s sister relocated to Arizona a few years ago, but we are still just as close to her and her husband as ever.

Everyone in both of our families is excited to support us in this next chapter of our lives! We are lucky to have such a loving and supportive family on both sides, and they can’t wait to watch our family grow.

One of our favorite family traditions is spending time with family and friends for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have both sides of the family over for a large meal, games, and spending time together.

What Led Us To Adoption

Both of us have always known we wanted to be parents someday, and since we wouldn’t ever be able to have a family the “traditional” way, we knew we would have to look into options to make our dreams of becoming parents come true. Ever since our first discussion of expanding our family, we knew adoption was the right choice for us. Wesley’s mother was adopted when she was an infant, so adoption is very close to us. Watching our nieces, nephews, and our friends’ kids grow up only confirmed the fact that we want to expand our family!
