• About Us:

      We first met through a mutual friend after college. We had our first date and were inseparable ever since. We got married in 2017 and 3 years later welcomed our son, Liam, through adoption.

      Liam loves swimming, trips to the zoo and visiting his favorite characters at Disney world.

      Patrick works as a Product Manager at a large Tech Company. Lauren also works for the same company in supporting sales and Business Operations. We enjoy working for our company and are grateful they allow such a flexible work/life balance culture.

      We are excited to welcome our second child through adoption! Thank you for taking the time to learn about us!

    • Our Hobbies:

      We enjoy boating and spending time at our second home in Florida. We love traveling to new places, trying new foods and experiencing new cultures. We also love just being home and spending time with our puppies. Patrick spends his free time golfing and Lauren enjoys cooking and taking new yoga/fitness classes.

    • Our Extended Family:

      We both come from large close families. We are lucky to be living close to Lauren’s Parents, Siblings, Aunts & Uncles. Patrick’s family also lives in the area and his parents are retired so we can spend a lot of time with them. Everyone is extremely helpful and supportive. Our siblings both have children so there are many cousins to play with!

    • Our Adoption Story:

      When we met, we knew we wanted to have a family. Due to medical reasons for Lauren, we felt the best option for us was through Adoption. Adoption has always been part of our plan to build our family. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome another child through adoption into our lives.

    • Special Activities We Look Forward to Doing with Our Child:

      Growing up we both enjoyed many vacations with our families. We both were lucky enough to travel to Disney World annually, go camping, explore different beaches & visiting extended family. Liam has enjoyed seeing new places and can’t wait to share these experiences with a new sibling.

      We look forward to attending baseball games, dance recitals and any new hobbies our child will be interested in. We are excited to dress them up for Halloween, go apple picking, learn about Santa and start new family traditions.

    • Holiday Gatherings:

      We love hosting family gatherings with both of our families. During Christmas time, we have a lot of fun with our nieces and nephews hiding their Christmas Elf and telling them stories on what he was doing while they were sleeping. We have a special tradition with our families and close friends to travel to New Hampshire after Thanksgiving dinner and spend time together while cutting down our Christmas tree.

    • Our Home & Neighborhood:

      We recently purchased a home in a small coastal town. We have a plenty of space to spread out and play. We have a large fenced in backyard and friendly neighbors. We are a five-minute drive from the beach and the park. Our town has big parades and celebrations for Christmas, Fourth of July and Halloween. We think it’s the perfect neighborhood to grow up in!

    There’s lots more to learn about this family!
