CAMILA for the Patterson family — TX

 photo fwbutton150.png camilaHi! We’re the Pattersons. We’ve been married for 23 years (Wow, time flies!) and currently have five children. Our two oldest are in college, our next two are in high school and our youngest is in fifth grade. Four years ago we adopted our youngest, Joseph. The past four years have been challenging but SO rewarding.

For over 2 years we have wanted to adopt again. We had been in process with another country when the adoption could not move forward. We were heartbroken. When we saw Camila’s picture we were so excited! We had been praying about who our next child would be and hoping that we could adopt a little girl with Arthrogryposis. Joseph was born with Arthrogryposis and we have become quite familiar with the ins and outs of the medical procedures and therapies that are necessary. So, when we inquired about Camila and were accepted to pursue her adoption we were thrilled! Despite the unknowns, we are ready to plow through the paperwork to bring our little girl home as soon as possible!!

We appreciate your prayers and support so much as we begin this journey.
