Patrick & Aldina

We truly appreciate you taking the time to get to know us. We believe every child is a gift and feel so blessed to have the opportunity to adopt again. We have so much love and joy in our hearts to share with another child! We look forward to all of the experiences that another child will bring to our family and are excited to watch them learn and grow!

Adoption in Our Lives

Love at First Sight

Of course adoption is close to our heart because we adopted our son Abram! We were always open to adoption, and adopting Abram has been the best thing that has ever happened to us. We look forward to the new and exciting experiences that another child will bring to our family.

Adoption is also very prominent in Aldina's family. Her aunt decided to grow her family through adoption many years ago. As a result, Aldina has two wonderful cousins who she is close with. Aldina also has a cousin who adopted two girls from China. They live in a different state, and we do not get to see them as often as we would like. We are both fortunate to work with families who have adopted. In fact, Patrick works for one of the best companies in the country that supports adoption. Patrick is an avid supporter of his company's foundation where he has seen many families come together through adoption. Throughout our adoption journey, we have talked to many close friends who have adopted and met new friends along the way. We have really enjoyed being a part of their experiences.

Our Lifestyle

We Can't Wait to Add Another Child to Our Family!

Our lifestyle is based on our family life and time together.  Aldina became a stay at home mom to dedicate her time and energy to make sure Abram and future children will be well cared for.  Patrick works hard for our family everyday!  Aldina and Abram are in several mommy and me classes during the week and go on several playdates. We strive to spend as much quality time together as a family in the evenings and on the weekends.  We believe in showing our son and future children that it is so important to be a close family.  We play outside, eat meals together, go on walks, go to the pool, read lots of books and sometimes just play with toys!  We love letting Abram explore and learn and also enjoy traveling to Patrick's mother's home and spending the weekends there.  She has lots of fun activities for Abram and is very hands on with him.  We enjoy seeing family and spending time with Abram's cousins.  We are always together with our son and are excited to share these same experiences with another child!  

Education I/We will Provide

We truly could not be more excited to become parents again! Aldina will stay home to raise both children. We feel blessed we have the opportunity to make this possible and not miss a minute of their growth and development. Education is very important to us, and we have already begun to save and plan for their education. We both value our educational experiences and would not be where we are today without them. We believe in continuous learning and plan to provide them with the same type of education. Since we both went to Catholic schools, we are considering sending them through the Catholic school system as well. We value our religion and plan to raise them with the same values while building a foundation for them as they grow to become an adult. We will encourage them to attend college and provide financial and emotional support throughout their life.

Our House and Neighborhood

Home Sweet Home

We live in a quiet suburban neighborhood where there are many children and young families. Our community has an excellent school system where Aldina was a teacher. We have a two story home with four bedrooms and a beautiful backyard with a playset! Our neighborhood has several beautiful parks with playgrounds, soccer fields, tennis courts and running/walking paths. We have many families on our street with children Abram's age and some new babies too. The evenings are filled with people walking, biking and playing with their children. We have a splash pad and a pool in our development that we also enjoy. Another great thing about the city we live in is that there are so many great activities for families! We have a great zoo and science center. Our son is currently in mommy and me swim lessons, Gymboree and toddler story times. The weekends are full of choices of things to do together!

Our Extended Families

Easter with Gradparents

Aldina's immediate family lives in our hometown. They love to celebrate the holidays. Her family hosts thirty or more people at her father's home on Thanksgiving. Being her Italian side of the family, there is pasta and meatballs on Thanksgiving along with a turkey (or two). Aldina comes from a blended family and was raised by both of her parents. She has a great relationship with her brother who also lives nearby.

We Love Grandma & Grandpa

Patrick's family travels to our home, and we make the drive to see them several times a year. They are a very close family that makes everyone feel at home. His mother has a passion for her job and dedicates herself to working with adults with disabilities. Patrick's father's side of the family enjoys going to movies, to festivals and out to dinner. We always go to their favorite Lebanese restaurant and enjoy great food together. Patrick has a twin brother, and ironically enough, they were born on their father's birthday! Patrick and his brother were very close growing up. They live in different states now and wish they were able to see more of each other.

Our families are very excited for us to adopt again! We both have blended families, so there is even more love to go around. Our parents will be a big part of this child's life as they have been with our son Abram.

From Us to You

Thank you so much for taking time to look at our profile and getting to know us. We hope by doing so that it will help you understand us both as a couple and as individuals. We have a deep appreciation for the decisions you have ahead of you, and we admire your strength. We are blessed that you would consider us to raise your child and can only imagine the emotions that you are feeling as you make this decision.

Before we were married, we knew it would be difficult for us to have a biological child. With Aldina being an elementary school teacher and both of us having such love and compassion for children, we knew it was not an option to live a life without children. This is how we began our journey to grow our family through adoption.

Being parents has been a lifelong dream for both of us. We have experienced one of the greatest of joys of our life by adopting our son, Abram! We now feel it is the right time to grow our family once again and add in another beautiful family member to complete our family. The gift of allowing us to raise your child will be one of the greatest gifts we have ever been given.

We have several friends along with a few family members that have adopted. We have sought out community resources and support throughout our adoption journeys. We have spent a lot of time making the decision to adopt again and making space in our life for another child. We have the love and support of each other and of so many others to welcome another child into our family at this time. By creating a life book and collecting children's literature about adoption, we hope will help answer his or her questions about how we first met you and how we fell in love with them.

Aldina will continue to stay home with the child. The child will be provided with a very loving and stable home life. Patrick has been at his job for 12 years and has some flexibility with his schedule. Aldina's parents, brother and extended family are all nearby to help and give more love as needed!

We will send letters and pictures to you each month along with updates on holidays and birthdays too. We are more than happy to discuss staying in touch if this is an opportunity that feels right to you. We are also open to further phone calls and emails if this is something you want to pursue. We hope we get the chance to meet you and would be thrilled to share our love together for your child.

You have so many wonderful couples to choose from, and we are blessed you have taken the time to read our profile. We dream of nothing more than becoming parents again. Please know that your child will be so loved and have everything they need. We pray for your strength as you make this decision.

Much Love,

Patrick & Aldina
