Dear Expectant Mother,
Hello! We are Scott & Patrick from San Anselmo, California. We are honored that you are taking the time to learn more about us and what your child’s life would be like as part of our family. This is just a snapshot of our lives together and we hope to share more with you in the near future.
We are overwhelmed with gratitude that you would consider us as potential parents, with whatever level of communication you are comfortable with. We sincerely hope that you find the perfect family for your beautiful baby.
We met after a close friend made three attempts over six months to set us up – the first two times were a flop but the third time (a St. Patrick’s Day parade in New Orleans) was the lucky charm! Having recently celebrated 15 years together (and 5 years of marriage), we find we have so much love to share and hope to begin to grow our family through adoption.
We share a passion for the world around us yet we also find so much happiness and joy in our beautiful house and neighborhood, often filled with friends and family. We are hopeful that you will allow us to open our home and hearts to your child.
About Scott by Patrick
Scott is the middle child of a close-knit family; he was born in Louisiana but grew up in a small city in the mountains of Virginia. Scott is passionate about nature and the outdoors – he’s an amateur birdwatcher and loves to hike and bike on the trails around our house! He loves to explore the world around him and has traveled to many different cities and countries.
Scott is an attorney specializing in safety issues; he loves his job and works hard but knows how to balance work and life. He inherited an irresistible sense of humor from his mother. Scott is a natural caretaker; he exemplifies loyalty and will do anything for the people that he loves. His calm demeanor and endless patience are never rattled; there’s a sense of peacefulness around him that makes you feel safe, secure, and loved – no matter what.
About Patrick by Scott
Patrick is the oldest of three siblings; he grew up in a small town in Massachusetts. Patrick loves to try new things and has a lot of hobbies, he loves to spend as much time outside as possible. Patrick loves to cook; he’s an expert at the grill and has an outdoor kitchen where we cook and eat most meals when it’s warm outside.
Patrick started his career as a special education teacher and has dedicated his career to education; he recently earned his doctorate in education and started his own business supporting schools and school districts. Patrick is constantly learning and exploring new things; his excitement about the world around him is infectious. He’s also a natural teacher – he loves to read to our nephews and to teach them new skills like how to make ice cream.
Hobbies We Love
We spend time outdoors enjoying nature as much as possible. We have been fortunate to have traveled around the world but also love exploring closer to home in Northern California. Both of us love to read – from the local newspaper to fiction to cookbooks. Patrick loves to cook while Scott is the resident baker; we go to the farmer’s market every Sunday to pick up breakfast and our produce for the week.
Home Sweet Home
We live in a beautiful and safe home in a postcard-perfect small town (San Anselmo) just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. Our house is on a “quiet” cul-de-sac; there aren’t many cars but just about everyone has young kids. One of the best elementary schools in the state is a five-minute walk from our front door; everyone walks or rides bikes to school. San Anselmo has perfect weather all year round – it never gets too hot or cold!
Values We Hope to Share
We both love to travel and see the world. We have prioritized travel over fancy clothes and cars and have been fortunate to visit many different countries around the world. We believe that our travel experiences have helped us become more respectful of other cultures and better humans. Exposing our future children to new cultures and languages is a priority for us; we want our children to value and respect the world around them. We hope to support them in learning new cultures and languages, and we want to encourage them to learn to speak at least two languages fluently! Patrick is approaching fluency in Spanish and Scott is taking Spanish lessons to improve his skills.
Our Promises to You
Your child will always know where he or she came from and the sacrifice you made that allowed us to begin our family. We promise that we will provide a life where your child will feel secure and loved by their family every day; he or she will be loved unconditionally. We will raise your child so that he or she will feel secure, confident, and prepared to pursue their dreams. We aspire to instill a sense of passion and respect for the world and all people.
Our Family and Friends
We are both very close to our families. Both of us are one of three siblings; we both have a brother and sister but Scott is the middle child and Patrick is the oldest. Scott’s family lives nearby and we see them frequently; Patrick’s family is a bit more spread out but we talk and text with each other all the time. Both of our brothers have young boys of their own so we are already expert uncles! We are lucky to spend a lot of time with our nephews as that time together inspired us to begin to grow our own family.
Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to share a little bit about ourselves. We hope that our passion and excitement to be fathers has shone through, alongside our steadfast commitment to you that your child will be loved and cherished by us forever. We would be honored to raise your child together but know that you will make the right decision for your child.
