A Letter from Patrick & Kathryn
Hello from sunny Florida!
We are a loving, Catholic couple, excited to become first-time parents through adoption. We would love to share a glimpse into who we are and what you can expect from us as parents. Prior to getting married, we discussed adoption, and when we were faced with infertility, we knew this was what God had in store for us. Thank you for considering joining us on this lifelong journey.
Our relationship is built on love, honesty, and open communication. It is this foundation that strengthens our bond and allows us to overcome challenges. The road to growing our family has been difficult, but has strengthened our relationship with each other and God. Six members in our family were adopted, and we know this is our true calling and that we are destined to be a child’s forever family.
We are fortunate to live in sunny Florida. We love taking part in outdoor activities like kayaking our neighborhood canals, hiking, swimming, and spending time at our family beach condo. We enjoy getaway weekends to Disney World where we are annual pass-holders. We are excited to see the parks through our child’s eyes. Patrick is quite the grill master, and we enjoy spending time at home relaxing on the patio, playing with our dog and cheering on our favorite teams.
Kathryn will be an amazing mother. She’s an incredible aunt to four and an honorary aunt to her best friend’s daughter. Kathryn has made a lifelong commitment to education for herself and others. She’s dedicated to helping people meet their educational and personal goals, and I know she will do the same for your child.
The thing I love most about my wife is her heart. She is a nurturing and compassionate soul who always sees the best in people. Her determination to succeed is inspiring, her faith is strong, and her capacity to love is endless. Kathryn is a professional event planner and I can’t wait to see the incredible birthday parties she will organize for our child. She is also a wonderful cook whipping-up everything from homemade meatballs to my favorite seafood boil. When she is not testing out a new recipe you can find her enjoying watersports at the beach or spending time with her loved ones.
To me, Patrick is a superhero of sorts. By day a professional Hospital Administrator, by night and on the weekends a fun-loving husband. He is the type of person I have always wanted to start a family with. When our time comes, I know I can count on him to be there for everything, from late-night feedings to changing dirty diapers. He will be present with love, joy, and a grateful heart.
Patrick enjoys walking our dog, Fred, watching the Mets play, and hanging out at the beach for the day. He has a natural calmness about him and exudes a sense of peace and security. I am excited to look out the window and see him fulfilling his lifelong dream playing catch with a son or daughter (or both!).
We are fortunate that Kathryn’s immediate family lives in the area. We see each other regularly and love spending time as a family at the beach. We also vacation together and particularly love cruising.
The majority of Patrick’s family is in the New York area. We make the trip there several times per year and regularly welcome family escaping the snowy north. We’re excited that one of Patrick’s aunts and uncles recently moved to Florida, and look forward to seeing them often!
One of our favorite family traditions is decorating the Christmas tree. Every year Kathryn’s family gathers to decorate her parent’s tree with special ornaments. We look forward to adding ornaments with your child’s name.
We own a fully remodeled one-story home with four bedrooms. There is space for a playroom, and a guest room for friends and family who visit. We have created a cheerful, welcoming nursery that is all ready for our future baby. We’re waiting to put the final touches on this special room until after we get to know you, so that we can include details that remind us of you, and celebrates all sides of our child’s story.
We have a large back yard with a patio and plenty of room for playing. Within walking distance is the water, playgrounds, churches, and an elementary school. Our neighborhood is well-established, safe, and family-friendly. We share our home with our dog, Fred, and our cat, Jasper, who both love being around people.
We can promise your child unconditional love, safety, stability, a happy home, and opportunity. Your child will have the chance to pursue his or her passions with the support of two loving parents. We will provide a faith-based education with access to higher education.
As parents, we already look forward to trips to Disney World, Little League games, dance recitals, and family vacations. We will provide every opportunity we can for your child to experience the world and follow his or her dreams. If you’re comfortable, we would like to maintain contact through letters, pictures, and visits. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

|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 friend’s 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. We believe family extends beyond biology and Kathryn’s best friend and her daughter an important part of our family. We have Sunday dinners, vacation, and spend holidays together. They are an additional aunt and cousin to our child.
|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 one dog named Fred and a cat named Jasper. They are good buddies and love children. Fred’s likes walks and playing in the sprinkler. Jasper enjoys naps and snuggles.
