|More About Our Family
|Why are we adopting?|
We are both committed to this journey and feel called to be parents. There is so much we want to share with our child. From impromptu dance parties to travel, we can’t wait to cherish every moment (and we will!).
We will be there for them for the rest of our lives whenever they need us. We will be there to help with homework, cheering in the stands when they hit the home run, to kiss boo-boo’s when they fall, to celebrate when they get their driver’s license, to take pictures on prom night and we will be there to mend their first broken heart. Not a day goes by that we don’t say to each other how wonderful it will be to share our life and our many blessings with a child.
We are both practicing Catholics. Patrick spent many years in Catholic school, and we are blessed to offer that same opportunity to our child. We believe that religious education provides a chance to develop emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually. We attend a local Catholic Church/school where many of our friends' children attend. We participate in many school activities and look forward to doing so with our child.
Kathryn is the younger of two children. Her brother lives in our town with his wife and daughter. Her parents have a house and a vacation home, both about 40 minutes away. Patrick’s is the oldest of three, and his siblings, nieces, nephew, and parents live in New York. We see all of them several times a year. Kathryn’s best friend and her daughter are also an important part of our family, who will be like an additional aunt and cousin to our future child. We enjoy Sunday dinners, vacations, and holidays with them!
|About Our Home and Neighborhood|
We own a four-bedroom, one-story remodeled home. We have space for a nursery, playroom, and guest room for visiting friends and family. Our home is on a large lot with plenty of room for outdoor play. We look forward to adding a swing set when the time is right.
The surrounding area has beaches, parks, museums, theaters, stadiums, and much more. We love that it is a diverse, active community that values arts, culture, and the environment.
We have two dogs, Fred and Cassie, and a cat named Jasper. They are good buddies and love children.
