Welcome to A Family For Every Child - Serving Families, Children and Agencies Nationwide / A Family For Every Child is dedicated to finding loving, permanent families for every waiting foster child.
Tamara and Patrick
We are excited about the possibility of adding a new child to our home! Our names are Tamara (age 38) and Patrick Dan Hughes (age 41). We have one child, Patrick Mason Hughes, and he is 5 years old. We are all of Caucasian ethnicity. Both Dan and Tamara were born and raised in Oregon (Cottage Grove and Springfield, respectively). We plan on living in Oregon permanently, as most of our family is local and we love the environment and people here. We are a busy and active family with two businesses (a brewery and part-time massage therapy business). Some of our favorite things to do are traveling, trying new foods, doing crafts, biking, hiking, swimming, martial arts, reading books, playing legos, hanging out with friends and family (we have a large extended family in Oregon) camping in our travel trailer, and going for walks with our dog Molly.
