Amy in Matt’s Words
"Amy is a million things that can’t be summed up in a few sentences or paragraphs. There is no limit to her kindness and compassion, and you will never meet a more loyal and dependable friend. Amy is never afraid to try new things and has a diversity of interests that ranges from crocheting to playing video games to hiking in parks and forests.
We also have a uniquely intimate and unbreakable bond between us, our family, and our close friends.
Amy is as intelligent as anyone I have ever met; both emotionally and intellectually. She is a devoted and loving partner, supporting me in anything that I do and encouraging me to be the best version of myself that I can be. Amy’s strength, determination, and persistence got her through some of the most severe health struggles a person can experience. She emerged from this experience stronger than ever and continues to thrive in all aspects of her life. I can’t wait to see Amy as a mom. The love that she has for her family, her friends, and all that life has to offer will be such an amazing gift to give a child."
Matt in Amy’s Words
"The first thing you should know is that he is a natural caretaker, and was my rock through some of the most difficult health challenges a person can face. I think it comes from his selfless nature, and strong desire to put the needs of his family ahead of his own. Next, you should know that Matt is one of the smartest people that I have ever met! His intelligence is one of the many reasons that I fell in love with him. The perspective he offers is wise and logical, and it often makes me challenge my own thinking. I have complete faith in his ability to make smart, well thought out decisions and trust that our family will always be well taken care of. One of my absolute favorite things about Matt is how kind he is. He treats all people with respect, and has a compassionate heart for anyone suffering or in need of help. He volunteers for the Special Olympics as a coach for various sports and activities. Every single Monday, he is out there coaching local members of our community. His compassion extends beyond people to animals as well. He is the first person to help any animal in need, even if it includes searching the neighborhood at night with a flashlight because he’s worried about a loose dog he spotted near the road. The way he cares for our little pup Bailey makes me smile, and fall in love with him more every day. I am genuinely so excited to see Matt as a dad. Everyone in our life is too! We have several close friends who have small children, and they all adore him, even as infants. His ability to hold and calm a fussy baby led to the nickname “The baby whisperer”. I think they are drawn to his calming and reassuring nature when they are young, and then his ability to play and have fun as they grow up. He is fondly known as “Uncle Matt” by all of the children in our lives. He is already the most incredible husband, but he is also going to be the absolute best dad as well."
