Barbara and Conal
Hi! We are Barbara and Conal
Conal & I have known each other for over 30 years. We went to the same high school! Although we didn’t marry until 9 years ago we have known each other forever.
We both knew early on that adoption was going to be an avenue we were going to explore and we have been waiting patiently to become parents so we can share our lives with a beautiful child. We have a lot of love to give and we long to share that love!
We have a new house in a small village in the west of Ireland. We built this house with the hope of sharing it with a child and we have set aside a special room for them. It is a work in progress but we have a lot of ideas! It will definitely be cosy warm and safe. For now we live there with Jack, our Border Collie.
It’s a really nice quiet area and the town is close by for shopping, eating out.
We live close to the ocean as well, and we love to go for walks on the beaches nearby. The park and playground are nearby where the local children meet and play.
I’m an environmental scientist and Conal is a farmer and also a stone mason. We have some cows, horses and donkeys!
I have one brother and one sister, but Conal is one of 8 children, he has one sister and 6 brothers. He has many nieces and nephews from age 36 all the way down to 6 years old. A lot of his family live locally, so we see them all the time.
In our spare time we love to take Jack on long rambling walks, I love nature and bird watching and reading. I also like TV shows especially US hit TV shows. We also listen to a lot of music, and although there are some good artists around now we still prefer the 80’s music!
Conal loves all sports, and does a bit of running and cardio to keep fit.
We love to travel and have been to different countries in Europe such as the UK, Spain and Portugal as well as the USA!
We were both raised as Catholic and we try to be good people that are patient, kind, thoughtful and helpful to others as much as we can. We would do our very best to raise your child with those same values.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our profile and please know that you can reach out to us at any time and we would be happy to share more information with you.
