Amanda & Patrick
– Alaska –
We are Patrick and Amanda from Alaska. We have been married 9 years and have 3 sons, Patrick adopted my oldest son a few years ago. We love being parents more than anything in the world. Having a baby girl will complete our family. To us family is the most important thing. Our lives revolve around our kids and making sure they are loved, safe and know they are important. Spending time with each child individually is also so important to us and to them. It shows them their value and how special they are.
Amanda grew up in Florida and loves the beach. She gives everything to her kids, she has always wanted more children but is unable to. They have always wanted to adopt. She was born to be super mom and wife. She loves to cook, bake and read. Every night before the kids go to bed she reads devotionals to them along with a story book. Her happy place is spending time with Patrick and the kids, she wouldn't want to be anywhere else, they also love to travel and see the world together as a family. Cooking a healthy dinner every night is so important to her, taking care of her family means the world to her and to them.
Patrick was raised in Indiana and joined the Air Force after school. He spent 21 years in the military. He loves teaching his kids how to build and do things outdoors. Taking the kids hiking and camping is so important to him. Spending time with his family is always at the top of his priority list. Patrick is the most amazing husband and father I have ever known. He is kind and has the most patience I have ever seen. His dream was always to have a large family and marrying Amanda helped make that dream come true.
Our home is a 3 story house at the end of a quiet road. We have a great neighborhood family that watches our for one another. We are in the process of actually building a new larger home on the 11 acres we have. We will have our own soccer field for the kids and lots of room for them to enjoy the outdoors.
The babies nursery is going to be decorated in a lot of Disney. We love Disney. We have all new furniture just waiting for a baby.
We celebrate holidays big in our house. We love Christmas. We decorate, we bake cookies, we go all out. The boys love to make ginger bread houses and display them in the dining room. Spending time together during the holidays is so important to us. We love to travel and take the kids to Disney World once a year during holiday break. They absolutely love that time together. We also love celebrating birthdays. Amanda loves to throw a good party and go all out with decorations and food and games for the kiddos. Making memories is so important.
Patrick and Amanda met while in the Air Force. Right away they knew they were meant to be together. We love coaching soccer for our kids, being outdoors and traveling. We will love your child more than life itself. She will never go without and never be without love and attention. Just because we have other children does not mean your child will be left aside, we will make her a priority all the time. The boys have been waiting so long for a baby to join our family and to love and spoil. We also believe its important for a child to know where they came from, their biological family is very important in that process.
