Hello you beautiful soul,

We are Patrick and Colin. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little more! We have been lovingly committed to each other for over 13 years and recently got married with the hopes to expand our family. We live in an Illinois suburb near St. Louis, Missouri and recently purchased our forever home. Early on in our relationship, we both knew we wanted to become fathers. We know that we have grown into the men that can provide a child with the space to explore and be authentically who they are; as well as surround them with the love and security of our love and family. We passionately choose adoption because we know the unconditional love between a chosen family and cannot wait to share that with our own child(ren). The adoption plan you’re making is a miracle that you are choosing to share with us, and we do not take that lightly. Thank you for loving your child so much; we promise to honor you always.

Patrick owns his own therapy practice and works as a Trauma Therapist specializing in Trauma/PTSD, Domestic and Sexual Violence, and LGBTQ+ affirming care. For fun, Patrick is also a musician and singer, always making beautiful music in our home. Colin is a Registered Dietitian in a surgical ICU at our city hospital and a college professor of clinical nutrition to train future dietitians. Colin is often finding new recipes to cook healthy and fun dinners each night, hoping one day to write a cookbook of his own! We are grateful to have the flexibility in our schedules to be available for our future family. You can often catch us experiencing live music or theater, or taking long weekend trips and adventures for more intimate quality time. We also have an energetic and adventurous dog, Luka who loves taking trips and playing with the kiddos in our lives. We take him on hikes, swimming at a nearby lake, and kayaking. We find any excuse we can to be together and host our chosen family; we truly have the best people surrounding and supporting us. 

We both see adoption as an immense gift that a birth parent is giving to us, and want to respect the amount of openness you feel is necessary. We understand the great benefits that open adoptions provide not only to a child, but also to address the feelings that you may have after placement and want to provide you with all of the tools necessary for having peace of mind that this child is placed with parents who want nothing more than to love and parent them. We also can see that forming a relationship with you can foster a lifelong connection for us as well. We are excited for the opportunity to meet and connect with you soon. May you feel the warmth of our sincere gratitude.  

With all of our love and anticipation,

Patrick and Colin
