BRENNA for the Hourigan family — MD

Michael Patrick & Sarah Hourigan were high school sweethearts and have been married for 10 years. They have been blessed with four biological children: Weston (8), Nellie (6), Trevor (5) and Collin (almost 2). Pat works in Biotech Manufacturing and Sarah is a full-time homeschooling mother.

Pat & Sarah have always wanted to adopt and desire a large family. Sarah’s first experience in international adoption was as a teenager, when a close friend’s family brought home a baby girl from Asia. Sarah decided back then that adoption would be in her future and she particularly hoped to have a girl from Asia one day. Pat is a family man and truly enjoys young children. He has said that he hopes to always have little kids in his life.

While scrolling through Facebook one day, Sarah came across a video about a family who had adopted children with Down Syndrome. It piqued her interest and she found herself googling more about Down Syndrome adoption and feeling pulled strongly in that direction. She shared her feelings with Pat, who was supportive. In early June, it was Brenna’s precious face that sealed the deal. Sarah fell in love with her instantly, and Pat’s heart soon followed. There were many tears and desperate prayers and lots of joy as they began the process to welcome Brenna into their family.

God has already provided miraculously for the Hourigan’s adoption. They are trusting Him to provide and equip them for the rest of the journey.
