Profile: Patrick and Kathleen
“May God bless you and your child during this selfless journey...”
"We are so thankful and excited you are taking the time to learn more about us. We have always dreamed about becoming parents and while we are unable to have children of our own, we feel that God is calling us towards adoption. We want you to know that you are in our prayers and want the very best for you and your child. May God bless you and your child during this selfless journey."
Meet Patrick and Kathleen
Patrick and Kathleen met in class their junior year in high school. "Patrick, being the outgoing, caring man that he is, decided that Kathleen, a shy, quiet girl, needed a friend. From that moment, they knew God had a special plan for them." After graduating, they attended college together. On a family vacation to Disney World with Kathleen's family , Patrick proposed at Cinderella's Castle. They married in 2017 in a beautiful Catholic church. They love spending time with each other, taking their dog Winnie on walks, and having family over for dinner and game nights.
KATHLEEN WRITTEN BY PATRICK
“Kathleen is the love of my life and one of my greatest blessings. I enjoy spending every day with her. She is loving, kind , and caring. She is always thinking of others and how to make everyone happy. She is devout in her Catholic faith, and she inspires me to be a better person. My goal is to fulfill one of Kathleen's dreams of being a stay-at-home mom, and I cannot wait to see her interact with our child. She is very loving towards our nieces, and I know she will make a perfect mom. She has always been there for me, and I know she will always be there for our child. My love will continue to grow for her infinitely, and our love story will never end.”
PATRICK WRITTEN BY KATHLEEN
"Patrick has such a kind heart. He always looks out for the underdog, which ironically is how we met. He is extremely giving and has helped me to become more involved within the community. He is compassionate, loving, loyal, faithful, and honest. He has a great sense of humor and always makes me laugh. He is a beautiful person, inside and out. He has such a strong Catholic faith and inspires me to be more involved in the Catholic Church. God has truly blessed my life with such a wonderful husband. My prayer for Patrick is to have the blessing of being a father as he will be a wonderful dad, loving our child unconditionally. Patrick is my greatest support system, and I am so incredibly thankful for him. He is my happily ever after, and I am truly thankful that God brought us together. I love him infinitely."
Kathleen is the third in a family of four children. She has two older brothers and one younger sister. Her parents have been married for 35 years. They can be described as loving, happy, generous, hardworking, understanding, kind, and supportive. Kathleen was raised in a loving home, where family values were emphasized, and spending time together was encouraged and enjoyed. She is the aunt to 5 nieces. Kathleen's family lives close by so Patrick and Kathleen get together with them several times throughout the week. Kathleen's grandparents, uncle, and three of her cousins live in Indiana, so Patrick and Kathleen are able to visit with them at various family events throughout the year.

"We live in a family oriented neighborhood that has a playground, pool, and many walking trails. There are several different places we enjoy visiting in our community. Our church is within walking distance from our home, and we enjoy walking around the trails of nearby parks. We live in a two-story, four bedroom home, and it is so much fun having family over. We especially enjoy visiting and playing family games in our large game room.”
"Our Catholic faith is a very prominent part of our lives. We go to church each weekend with Kathleen's parents, siblings, and grandparents and attend daily Mass at least once a week. We also enjoy going to Adoration to spend one-on-one time with Jesus. Every night we pray a family rosary with Kathleen's family. This helps us become closer to God as a family. We plan on raising our children in the Catholic faith, encouraging them to live out the Catholic faith each and every day of their lives."
Patrick and Kathleen are open to sending pictures and letters, giving updates about their child to his/her birthparent(s) through semi-open adoption.
