Evelyn & Patrick
Dear Expectant Parents
We are Evelyn and Patrick from New York. From the bottom of your hearts we thank you for taking the time to review our profile. We admire the love that you have for your child and we consider it an honor and a privilege to be considered by you as adoptive parents.
As an elementary school teacher and school social worker, our professions are dedicated to supporting children and their families. We have tried to grow our family; however, due to infertility issues, this has not been possible. We believe that this is God’s way of guiding us to adoption.
We will support you during this difficult time and pledge to love your child unconditionally. We will provide a stable, supportive and faith-based home where your child will flourish and live up to their full potential. Your child will grow up knowing that they were loved before they were born, by both you and us. Thank you once again for your brave decision.
How We Met and Life Today
We met at the school we currently work in. The first time we talked was during a school breakfast. We felt very comfortable and laughed a lot. This became the beginning of a beautiful friendship that evolved into the awesome marriage it is today.
We’ve been married for five years now. We both have the summers off and use this time to enjoy nature, traveling, long walks, golf, sporting events, concerts and time with family and friends. We also attend church services every week and participate in outreach activities. We’re excited about adopting and look forward to sharing our faith, values and rich experiences with your child. We have no doubt that the tears of sadness that we’ve shed due to infertility will soon turn to tears of joy!
About My Loving Husband, Patrick
Patrick is a very kind and loving person. When I started working at his school I heard about him from the parents I worked with. Every time a parent had a child in his class, they talked about how great a teacher he was and how happy their child was to be in his class. When I finally met him, he lived up to all of the wonderful things I had heard about him.
He is compassionate, friendly, humble, respectful and very funny. He makes me laugh a lot. He is such a good man and a great husband. He is very supportive and helpful at home, a true family man. The best part of my day is dinner time, which is when we talk about our day.
He is also a fun loving uncle. His nephew and nieces enjoy playing baseball, board games, badminton and corn hole with him. I look forward to growing a family with him. I know that he will be the best dad ever, no doubt!!
Patrick’s Work Life
PATRICK IS AN EARLY CHILDHOOD TEACHER. He enjoys working with his students and makes learning fun. He dresses up as a story book character with his students every year. He is definitely living out his calling.
About My Best Friend, Evelyn
Evelyn has the biggest heart of anyone that I ever met. Her generosity and compassion are inspiring. She is also a very strong person who is deeply rooted in her values and her faith.
I feel very blessed to be married to her. I’ve never had a connection with someone like I do with Evelyn. She is my best friend and my biggest supporter. Her love for people, for family and her love for me is what makes me love her even more. What initially attracted me to Evelyn was her genuine character and now after 5 years of marriage, I am still taken aback by her sincerity and charm. She is very sweet, caring, and friendly.
Whenever I see Evelyn with children, I can’t wait to start a family with her. It’s beautiful to see how easily she connects with them and how quickly they trust her. She always comes up with inventive ideas about what they can do and she makes them laugh. Raising children with Evelyn will be a wonderful experience as I know she will love and nurture your child with great understanding and patience – and the required sense of humor. I know Evelyn will make an amazing mother and I cannot wait for our journey to parenthood to begin!

Where We Live
We love everything about living in our community in New York. We LIVE IN A COZY CAPE COD IN A SUBURBAN COMMUNITY THAT IS DIVERSE AND FAMILY ORIENTED. We have the opportunity to enjoy the changes of the seasons in our picturesque neighborhood as we decorate for the holidays. We also have a family room in our finished basement that is a walk out to the yard. We love to have family and friends over for BBQ’s and special occasions. We are surrounded by plenty of parks, playing fields and a fantastic library that offers activities such as story time, puppet shows and after school clubs. We are also a train ride away from New York City where there is lots to explore and do, such as visiting museums and zoos.
We attend church weekly and work with the children in our church community. Our church family is very loving and affirming. We believe that our first ministry is family and that living out our faith at home is of utmost importance. In a world that is ever changing and sometimes volatile, faith is an anchor that centers and guides our family.
The People We Love
Patrick comes from a large family. He is one of 5 siblings. His family is loving and supportive of our decision to adopt. One of his uncles adopted two children with his wife. His family is very excited about having a new baby in the family. Your child will enjoy frequent family gatherings to celebrate the holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.
Evelyn’s parents came from Puerto Rico in the 1950’s with their parents and siblings. As a result, Evelyn has a large extended family that lives less than an hour away. She is the youngest of her siblings. Her family is very warm and welcoming. Their gatherings include delicious traditional dishes and desserts. Spanish is often spoken and laughter is the norm. Your child will be received with lots of smiles, hugs and kisses.
Our Hopes and Dreams
We LOOK FORWARD TO BEING PARENTS BECAUSE WE FEEL CALLED TO SHARE OUR LOVE AND THE MANY BLESSINGS WE ENJOY. We hope to instill in our child the values that we were both raised with such as faith, compassion, respect, creativity and a good sense of humor. We also value education and will teach your child to be a lifelong learner. Your child will have a well-rounded life and many opportunities to explore and discover their gifts and talents. We want your child to have wonderful experiences and to succeed in fulfilling their deepest dreams and desires, not only to better themselves but also the world around them.
