We are Patty and Teddy and we want to thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We are excited that you would consider us as loving parents and we pray that our story will give you a glimpse of who we are and who we hope to be as parents.
We met online through Match.com. At first we chatted through e-mails and finally, after a few months of getting to know each other through email, we decided to meet for lunch at a local eatery. We spent the lunch hour talking about each other and came to the conclusion that one hour was not enough time to get to know someone. So we decided to go on a real date for dinner so we can spend more time getting to know each other better. After that night, we became a couple. What brought us even closer together was when we met each other’s family and friends during the next year or so. A short time after that, Teddy proposed to Patty at her favorite tea house. The following year we were married in a beautiful winter wedding surrounded by our family and friends.
We have strong and loving relationship and have been married for 5 years now. We are fortunate to have the love and support of our family and friends who look forward to meeting our new addition to our family.
About Patty (by Teddy):
Patty is a warm, loving and caring soul. A family oriented person with a large heart. She’s my best friend and I’m honored to have her as my wife. When I see her with our nieces and nephews I know she will be a wonderful Mom.
About Teddy (by Patty):
One of the many things I love about Teddy is his sense of humor. He can really make me laugh! Not, only that, but he has a great sincerity about him as well. He is the kind of person you can count on and always there for you. He’s a great friend, a good family man and a wonderful husband. I just know he will be a great Dad!
Our Home & Community
We live in New Jersey, our house is located near the mountains, surrounded by many lakes. It is a community widely recognized for its commitment to youth activities like recreational sports, hiking, mountain biking, boating and fishing. We also live near an excellent school system. Our house is a bi-level home that sits on ¾ of an acre, so there will be plenty of space to run!
Our Friends and Family
We feel very blessed to be surrounded not only by a supportive family but a group of wonderful neighbors we consider good close friends. They are always there for us and we know our child will always feel the love they have shown us. We love to get together with them for BBQ’s, bowling and miniature golf. Most of our friends have children and we love to babysit for them. We love to play baseball with them or have fun riding on ATV’s together with the older kids. Our family is a big part of our lives and is very excited about our decision to adopt. They are really looking forward to welcoming a new family member. We are both really lucky to have our families live close by. Our families are very important to us and will be a big part our child’s life.
Patty is the youngest of two children. Her older sister Joann and her husband Gabe have twin boys who are 16 months old. We adore our nephews, and love spending time with them. Patty’s parents really enjoying being grandparents and are very excited about adding another grandchild to their family. Adoption came as a natural choice for us. Patty’s father was adopted when he was about 3 years old. Learning through his experience, we knew firsthand the positive impact it has had on his life and ours. Because of his adoption story, it made it easier for us to come to this decision in creating our own family.
Teddy is youngest of three children. His older brother is married and has one daughter. His older sister has three children as well. Although Teddy’s mother lives out of state, we make numerous trips to see her and she visits as often as she can. Teddy’s stepmother lives close by and is very excited about meeting our new family member as well.
We love to explore and travel whenever we can. One of our most favorite places to go to is Cape May, NJ. We go about twice a year during the summer and early fall months. It’s the best time to ride our bikes, take in the sun and enjoy the sites. The state of New Jersey has so many wonderful areas to explore, we look forward to sharing our beautiful state with our child. We are also lucky to be within driving distance of Upstate New York and Pennsylvania. As much as we enjoy traveling locally, we look forward to the day we can take our child to Walt Disney World. It’s one of our favorite places and we know how much children love Mickey Mouse.
We often like to spend quiet nights and weekends at home. Many times we make a big bowl of popcorn and enjoy catching up on movies or TV shows that we may have missed. We love to play games too! One of our favorite games to play is UNO!
One of our greatest joys is when we can visit the local animal shelter. We enjoy giving our friendly and furry friends lots of love and attention. We both share a great love of animals.
