Pam and Terry O'Toole

Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child. We know that considering open adoption takes great strength and courage.

About Us

We have been married for thirteen years. We met at work and knew right away that we were meant to be together. We share the commitment, trust and passion that makes a relationship endure the test of time.

We’ve always dreamt of having a child together, but as fate would have it, we were never able to conceive. While we have been blessed with a wonderful marriage and home, our desire to become parents is stronger than ever. We know that adoption is our best option to build our family, and we are so excited to begin this journey.

About Pam

A family hike with nieces Erin and Brittany.

Pam has a heart of gold, and is always thinking of others. Just when she thinks her day is full, she is willing to add a helping hand. She is attentive, generous, outgoing and creative. Pam is very good at problem solving and thinking creatively out of the box. She relaxes and unwinds by exercise, running, lifting weights, and yoga.

In school, Pam was a Fine Arts major, in Surface Design, receiving awards upon graduation. As a designer, she can’t wait to encourage or child’s creative side, playing with crayons, paints, computers, and cameras.

Pam has been involved with the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program for the past 8 years, during which she’s been a mentor and Big Sister to Judy, who is 14. Although Judy currently lives in Portland Oregon, they correspond daily via e-mail.

About Terry

Pam & Terry boating.

Terry is a compassionate, kind, loving person who genuinely wants to make life better for others. Terry loves antique cars and can identify the make, model, and year of most vintage cars, and can’t wait to pass this knowledge on to our child.

Terry is already a great father, and will teach our child the mechanics of cars, electronics, attending vintage car shows, boating, sailing, and windsurfing in the ocean.

Many nights we find our guests gathered around Terry’s player piano. He restored the piano during college, and it continues to bring music to our lives. We look forward to our child enjoying the piano, pumping the pedals, and watching the keyboard move, while singing along.

We hope this web site will help to introduce us, and give you an idea of what our life and home is all about. We hope to get to know you better and to welcome you and your child into our family. We want you to know that we are open to whatever level of ongoing contact you are comfortable with.
