Hello! We are Patrick and Heidi and it is our hope to be known to someone as Mom and Dad. We are excited to become a family of three through adoption! We met when we began working together at a bookstore 11 years ago. Heidi was the cute new children's bookseller and Patrick was the guy she could always go to with questions. Patrick saw a light in Heidi he knew would brighten his life and she quickly saw that he could be the rock she needed.
After 7 years of marriage we have learned to work together in new ways, had some fantastic adventures, and added loving furry companions to our lives.
And we have so many books....
We are looking forward to our next great adventure, parenthood, and connecting with you. We know that you want what is best for your baby and hope that you find everything you wish for your child. Thank you for considering us as you explore this page. We look forward to answering any questions you have about us and getting to know you too!

Meet Patrick! Patrick is going to be such a supportive dad. He is literally a boy scout. In fact, he can still fit into his high school scout uniform. He is reliable and loyal with a dry sarcastic sense of humor. He values family relationships and often takes his mom on dates to the movies and is usually in the audience of our nieces' dance and school recitals. Patrick is fun and geeky in the best ways. He is always reading, loves to watch bad movies (good ones too), and plays video and board games. On our very first date we played with Lego!
Heidi is so ready to be a mom! She is loving and compassionate. Heidi also loves to sing! She sings and plays bass guitar every Sunday in the worship band. She has been working as a bookstore manager for eight years. She has studied art and theater all her life and so she loves doing storytime, dressing up as characters and doing crafts with the kids. We look forward to bonding with our future child through reading together.
We bought our house two years ago and have hosted a big family Thanksgiving here twice now. We live in an older neighborhood with huge trees and on our dog Tucker's daily walks we pass by the neighborhood elementary school and a great park. Heidi is learning through trial and error how to garden, and we love playing fetch in our shady fenced back yard.
We both grew up with pets and have added two cats and a dog to our family. Our dog has been through several types of obedience classes which has grown him into a sweet companion who loves his kitties.
Our parents all live here in our home town. In fact, they live two blocks apart! Our child will know two great grandparents. We both have siblings with kids so they have all had grand parenting experience and excel at it in our opinion. The future aunts, uncles, and cousins are all looking forward to future babysitting opportunities.
Heidi grew up in the church as a preacher's kid. She loves that she and Patrick get to attend church where her dad is the senior pastor now. Last year Heidi and her dad did mission work building a house and she cannot wait to do that again.
