A Letter from Patrick & Kaley
We openly welcome you into a glimpse of our life! We are a bi-racial, Christian, God-loving family that is full of joy, laughter, fun, and adventure! We are so excited to begin this journey of growing our family through the miracle of adoption a second time. We fully trust and believe it is God’s calling to us and we are beyond thrilled! We are devoted to providing your child with a delightful, loving and fulfilling life of adventure and family.
Our story begins 15 years ago when we met at a local coffee shop. After a short conversation, a phone number exchange, and a date one week later, it would be safe to say the rest is history! 14 years of marriage and we are still best friends!
While unable to have children of our own we knew our desire to have a family didn’t have to end. With prayer and support, our interest in adoption became clear and, in 2012, we were blessed with our son, Lawson, through adoption.
More than anything we love to spend quality time together laughing and having fun. Whether it’s camping, swimming, playing games, visiting new places, watching movies, or simply reading- it’s always better with family. The longing to share those joys and experiences with another child began tugging at our hearts again. We are so excited to adopt once more and welcome your child into our family!
One of the reasons I fell in love with Patrick is because he made me laugh…a lot! He loves having fun and being active in many ways; he’s a big kid at heart. He is a sports fanatic, an involved dad and loves coaching our son’s baseball, football and basketball teams. He is looking forward to sharing his joy and passion for sports and activities, along with his lovable sense of humor, with a second child.
As a Police Officer for 14+ years and now a Special Education Teacher, Patrick’s desire to help others is genuine. His caring and kindness can be seen in the positive impact he has on people of all ages. Patrick is intelligent, focused and extremely hard working. Every one of these qualities are characteristics he strives to pass down and emulates as a father.
Kaley’s kindness and sense of humor were the initial attractions that allowed me to open my heart to her. I quickly fell in love with Kaley’s laugh and her ability to make me laugh. Her approach in life is about helping others as can be seen from her career in Nursing. She is always putting the desires of others over her own.
Kaley loves sports and is always cheering on her favorite teams, including our son’s. She’s an extremely talented musician. Piano and singing continue to be a big part of her life. Kaley is smart, patient, encouraging, organized and dedicated. She leads by example and is a wonderful teacher to our son and those around her. She is longing to share her passions and more with another child.
Lawson, our 7-year-old son, is a ball of laughter and energy with a smile so big it’ll melt your heart! He is smart, kind, and an amazing friend to others. He is joyful, loves school and is very active. Lawson is so excited to be a big brother and has been praying for a sibling for quite some time.
Family is everything to us. Both of our families are so very excited for us to adopt again and look forward to welcoming your child into the family. We look forward to creating memories, sharing holidays and passing down family traditions to your child all while sharing with them our love and support.
Our spacious home includes 5 bedrooms with an open floor plan. We have a large fenced in backyard with tons of open space to run, play, and have fun. Our community is safe, diverse, friendly and surrounded by children of all ages. We’re a short drive from lakes, zoos, libraries, entertainment and more. We are within walking distance of a large park with walking/biking paths and a community pool. There is always something happening in our community!
We promise a loving, caring, nurturing and respectful home for your child where we will provide structure, safety, and guidance. They will be raised in a Christian home and will know their wonderful story from the very beginning. We will provide your child with opportunities to experience a variety of interests through exposure to activities through school and community. We’ll teach your child responsibility and the value of never giving up, and we will love your child unconditionally!

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
Together we love spending time as a family...there is nothing better! The laughter and joy we hold in our home and with each other is ever-flowing! We love camping and exploring the outdoors, playing a variety of sports and going to concerts. We enjoy listening to music, playing all sorts of games, reading, and vegging out on the couch over a bowl of popcorn while watching a movie. We also love to take mini vacations and quick getaways. No matter what adventure we tackle we do it in fun and with so much love!!
Our family believes Jesus Christ to be the central figure of Christianity and is most certainly at the very center of our home. We are active members of an amazing church that is full of faithful, loving and welcoming people. The children's ministry at our church is phenomenal and we are so grateful to see the opportunities our son has to grow in his own faith. We are so excited to share this with your child. As a family, our faith has continued to grow stronger and stronger. We strive to be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer and above all we truly trust in the Lord's plan and will for our family.
|Our Musical Interest|
We love music in our house! Our interests in genres are quite eclectic. Most often you will find us listening to contemporary Christian music in the car or while relaxing at home, but we definitely mix it up with some of today's pop music, rock music, and even country. Kaley received a minor in music while in college which focused primarily on classical music. As a classically trained pianist and singer, you'll catch her listening to that music while at work or reading at home. We love a variety and music certainly proves that true!
Both of our families are so supportive and excited to welcome another life into our family. We have family in many states. Kaley's parents live just a short drive away in Minnesota and visit both ways are quite frequent. Holidays are typically spent at their house with lots of extended family gathered for the celebrations. Kaley's brother, his wife and three young children live in Ohio and Kaley's sister and her son live in Tennessee. The majority of Patrick's family lives in Wisconsin. His parents reside in the hometown in which he grew up. He has four older brothers whose families also live in different parts of the state.
Lawson, 7 years old. He's full of life, love, and is so ready to become a big brother!
|We live in the state of...|
Minnesota! Home of 10,000 Lakes, four beautiful seasons, and the country's largest shopping mall!
We live in a newly built home in a quiet neighborhood with families of all ages and lots of kids. Our neighborhood continues to grow and develop yet maintains its small town feel, lying just outside a large, diverse city with easy access to endless opportunities. Our neighborhood has a large park at the center of the development with lots of playground equipment, walking/biking paths, and a community pool. It has a large man-made pond with a fountain where families can feed the ducks and catch minnows in the summer and ice skate on in the winter. It has a large hill for children (and adults) to go sledding on in the winter months or sit on the bench at the very top overlooking the entire neighborhood in the warmer months. It's a wonderful, friendly and safe place to raise a family.
