Pat and Tatiana are waiting to welcome a child into their heart and home through open adoption. Learn more about them!
Dear Birth Mom/Family,
Our names are Pat and Tatiana and we are eager and excited to become parents! We would love to welcome your child to our great Italian -Ukrainian family full of art, music and adventure. Hopefully, your child can’t wait to enjoy the most delicious food like lasagna and Ukrainian perogies.
We understand how difficult it can be to make an adoption plan and pray you find comfort and guidance in making the right choice. Should you decide adoption is the best path forward, we stand ready and willing to offer our hearts and home. If you believe we’re the right couple, have peace in knowing you have placed your child with a loving family prepared to give him or her the best opportunities possible.
Tatiana and I are both happy creative individuals lucky to come from loving ethnic families filled with lots of traditions and great stories. This is our story we would like to share with you.
We want to thank you for taking the time to learn about us and hope you like what you see. It is our sincere desire to parent a young one and provide them the sanctuary of a loving home. With God’s blessing, it is our hope that whatever choice is made provides peace and comfort to everyone involved in this serious decision.
We have much love and warmth to give a child and understand this is a serious lifelong commitment. We would welcome your child with open arms and big hearts and offer unconditional love to this new family union.
Our Story & How We Met
We met New Year’s Eve 2003 at a party thrown by our good
friends in Chicago. Pat asked me about my accent and learned
I was from the Ukraine. He then told me wonderful stories
about when while in college, he had traveled to my country.
We immediately both fell in love. After dating for two years we married in Milwaukee in 2005 where we still reside on the East Side of town.
Travel is in my blood and it’s my goal to see every state in the union and tour most of Europe. So far, I’ve made it to 46 states and many of the major countries in the European Union.
I love to read and enjoy bios and learning about historical events. I’m especially interested in military history and World War II.
Film connoisseur, I enjoy watching a great classical movie and am particularly fond of anything Alfred Hitchcock or Martin Scorsese has directed.
A Wisconsinite through and through, I bleed green and gold and love my Packers!!!
I’m also a huge college basketball fan and closely follow my alma mater, Marquette University. Go Warriors!!
Like Pat, travel is one of my favorite pastimes. Growing up in the Ukraine, I had the opportunity to visit most of Eastern Europe to include Russia, Belarus, Poland and the Baltic nations. Living in the United States, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing a good portion of the country and Caribbean with my husband.
Cooking! I love to create a great meal and really enjoy experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes.
Music is my life. I enjoy performing with various symphonies and chamber groups as well as singing in the church choir with my parents.
Kids bring me great joy and I get great satisfaction in teaching them how to play the violin.
Gardening is also a passion of mine. Tending to the garden slows me down and gives me time to think and relax. I also love flowers and get a thrill out of watching them grow and bloom.
Our Home & Community
We live in a beautiful two-bedroom condo in an area of town full of life and movement. There’s always something to do and we both greatly enjoy living in this very sophisticated neighborhood full of culture, restaurants and music!

Thank you for taking the time to look at our portfolio. We hope you like what you see and realize this is an emotional time for you and your child.
Do not doubt that Tatiana and myself are devoted to each other and would love to share our blessings with children.
It is our hope to form a bond with you and child and that the Lord provides peace and comfort in whatever decision is made.
Godspeed in your journey. We look forward to meeting you soon.
Pat and Tatiana
