Reason to Adopt

The US Army has shaped the last 20 years of our life. Right out of college, Pat joined the Army as an Infantryman, to be a part of something bigger and to see the world. Fourteen years of military service made us who we are today: we have great friendships, had many unique experiences, learned many life lessons and have lived in Washington State, Georgia, Hawaii, Chicago, California, Michigan and Alabama. Pat has served in Panama, Egypt, Thailand and Iraq. Pat's Army career has had a profound effect on our ability to build our family. Throughout his military career, we endured long separations and a near-fatal combat injury in 2007. With hard wok and support from family, friends and medical professionals Pat's recovery surpassed anyone's expectations, but the one thing that still persists is infertility. Adoption seems to be our natural next step. We both have adopted cousins. Therefore, adoption is already woven into the fabric of our family culture.

Meet Pat (through Patty)

Pat is an Irishman through and through. He is self-confident with great personal charm and warmth. He's a fierce competitor, he has an uncommon grit, my absolute favorite thing about him, is his whit. He finds the humor in all things and keeps us laughing and smiling even when times are tough. Pat was an avid rugby player in his youth. He still follows local, national and international rugby. He enjoys the great outdoors. Currently, he is into adaptive skiing, biking, and pilates. Pat is determined to keep his body and mind strong. I think Pat makes a fantastic Dad. He is an inspiration to all who know him. He has the time, energy and resources to care for a child. Pat looks forward to sharing his love of nature, sports, reading, history and county. He is excited about the opportunity to cultivate a life long learner.

Meet Patty (through Pat)

Patty is one of those people who will always find something fun to do. She is young at heart and enjoys spending time with the kids in our life. Loyal, likable, social, resourceful and thoughtful is how I describe her. In fact, Patty is fiercely loyal to those she loves. To unwind Patty plays soccer on a local city team in the fall and spring, she enjoys tap dancing with her Friday night women's group. During the week she works part-time from home for a small non-profit that supports Veteran employment and entrepreneurship. She is the Marketing/Communications Coordinator, she love being creative and coming up with ideas and designing logos, pamphlets and brochures. The Nationals Baseball Club is her guilty pleasure she grew up watching baseball with her dad. This summer we had season tickets right behind first base. On holidays Patty goes big, she so looks forward to celebrating each holiday with our child by decorating, making crafts and filling our home with the music of the season.

Introduction

Hi, we are Pat and Patty. We were college sweethearts, and boast 26 years of friendship and 19 years of marriage. We met on our university's main lawn at a pick-up rugby match. Pat and I had so much in common, we both love sports, travel, our friends, this country, and spending time with family. We count our blessings, laugh often and try not to take ourselves too seriously. A stable home, with a loving couple that has an excellent track record of making sacrifices for the sake their marriage and for the good of the family is what we have to offer a child. May whatever you decide, bring you peace and comfort. If you chose to make an adoption plan with us, we promise to do all we can to support you.
