We Are a Couple from Brooklyn, New York City Hoping to Adopt a Baby!
Hello! We are excited about expanding our family through adoption. If you have any questions after reading our adoption profile please do not hesitate to reach out, we are truly an open book. We put a lot of thought into what you may want to know about us so you can make the best decision for your baby.
Our journey together started seven years ago in Minneapolis, Minnesota. About an year later, we embraced our adventurous spirit and moved ourselves and our pets across the country to Seattle, WA. After a few years in Seattle making great friends and wonderful memories, we realized that we were just too far from family, so we headed for New York City. As soon as we arrived in Brooklyn, we knew that we were home.
Our home is in a classic neighborhood called Boerum Hill. Our community is full of century-old brownstones that are nestled along tree-lined streets. Knowing our goal of expanding our family, we looked for a home we could grow into. We found a large, open floor plan loft with outsized windows, tall ceilings, and a patio where we can enjoy morning coffee or evenings listening to music. We love entertaining in our space, and this brings us to the most special and important part of our neighborhood which is the proximity to family. Patrick’s brother Tim is a subway ride in from Manhattan and another brother Brendan, is less than a block away with his wife Ilana and newborn daughter Simi. We have weekly dinners together, which are either Friday nights with board games or Sunday night spaghetti and meatballs.
Together, we have five nieces and nephews! A niece (Ellie) and nephew (Logan) who live in Duluth, Minnesota, as well as a niece (Riley) and newborn nephew (Aiden) in Pittsburgh, PA. In Brooklyn, NY we are lucky to be near our newborn niece (Simi).
Our families are extensions of us. We come from very different backgrounds, however, both of our families made sure we grew up knowing the importance of relationships. The fundamental values we learned from our extended families are something we both look forward to instilling in our future family. Family has shaped us into the people we are today, and that same family is ready and excited to guide us into fatherhood.
“Patrick is smart, competitive, and driven, and he goes out of his way to create a loving, warm home. He has always had family at the center of his heart. Patrick is no stranger to adoption as he has a cousin who was adopted from Peru and his best friend, Casey, was adopted from Korea. I have no doubt he will be the best dad in the world!” —James
“James is truly one of the kindest people I know. When I first met James, I knew I had found someone who was special. I admire his quiet, gentle, calm ways. He has an amazing capacity to love and care for humankind. James’s advocacy and caring nature make him a wonderful uncle to our five nieces and nephews. James will inspire and challenge our children to be their best selves.” —Patrick
From the moment we met, we both knew we wanted to grow our family through adoption. We are so excited for the opportunity to raise a child, and promise to do everything in our power to teach them how to be kind, creative, and smart. We are both fully committed to doing whatever it takes to make sure our child grows up in a supportive family with all the opportunities we can provide.
We can’t imagine what you are going through as you consider adoption as one of the options for you and for your child, but we thank you for exploring us as the potential adoptive parents for him or her. We understand this decision is not an easy one, but we hope that by viewing our profile you gain a sense of who we are, what we love, and how we will be as parents. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
Sending you strength on your journey,
—James & Patrick
