Family of three can't wait to become family of 4!
Dear Expectant Parent(s),

We have so much love to give and we can’t wait to grow our family through adoption. We hope you can get a glimpse into our life and will consider meeting us.

Every Family has a story. . . Welcome to Ours

Our wedding day was one of the happiest days of my life!

Our Family

Matt and I met in January 2012. Matt actually lived just a block away from my parent’s house and neither of us knew it at the time but we finally found each other on a dating website. After dating for 5 months, Matt popped the question while we were camping with my family on our annual camping trip to Yellowstone Park.

We are easy-going and love to laugh.

We then tied the knot 3 months later. It was a whirlwind of a year but I guess when you know it’s meant to be things happen in a blink of an eye.

Matt, Maggie (our daughter from his previous marriage) and I then began our journey together. I’ve always wanted to be a mother and I became one the day Matt and I said ‘I do’, but we felt there was another piece to our puzzle. After almost 4 years of trying to conceive we decided that our destiny was to grow our family through adoption and we are beyond excited! Matt’s little sister joined the family through adoption as well as two of Matt’s cousins, so adoption is close to our hearts.

We are an easy going family that loves to laugh. Matt is always cracking a joke or making a funny face. He loves to make people laugh and is often called the favorite uncle. Maggie is a sweet, silly, 11 year old who loves animals, doing crafts and hanging out with her cousins. She is always the first one to jump at the opportunity to help take care of the little ones which shows how wonderful of a big sister she will be.

Family is such an important part of our life. We love spending time together whether it be family dinners, celebrating birthdays or a last minute get together. I have 3 sisters and 1 brother. Matt has 3 brothers and 1 sister so between the two of us we have quite the crew. We also have 6 nieces and 8 nephews that range from 1 to 22 years of age. I couldn’t imagine my life without our big families. Which leads us to another reason we are hoping to be blessed with another child. My siblings are my best friends and I would love for Maggie to experience all the joys, fun times and of course the frustrating moment’s siblings can bring. I want her to have a sibling (or siblings) that she can love, cherish and bicker with (what siblings don’t bicker and fight every once in a while?).

Our sincere desires

Since we started our adoption journey we have learned so much and heard so many wonderful stories from birth mothers (my cousin is a birth mother), adoptive parents and adoptees. Adoption is such a beautiful, selfless, heavy-hearted and profound act of love.

We are so grateful that you have taken a moment to get to know us.

We want you and your child to know that the BOTH of you are loved and wanted

We would be honored and blessed to have the opportunity to get to know you. Our hope is to have an open adoption but we will respect what you feel comfortable with. We want you and your child to know that both of you are loved and wanted.

Sincerely With Love,

Matt, Julie & Maggie
