Matt + Julie

Hello
We are Matt, Julie and Maggie.

How are you? We don’t know what you must be going through, but we respect you and see that
it is abundantly clear that your love for your unborn child is immeasurable. Our prayer is that
you will have support and comfort through this difficult time.

Adoption is an incredible journey that is full of love, selflessness, beauty and heartache. I’m
reminded of this quote: “Like every other aspect of adoption, truth is not a gift that you can
choose to give or withhold; it is a prerequisite.”

We realize this journey is not about us as hopeful adoptive parents, even though our hearts are
anxiously waiting to grow our family. This is about you and your baby and what you feel is best
for your little one, whether that is to parent or make an adoption plan. Either way, we support
you and wholeheartedly believe you know what is best for your baby.

This is a difficult road with many unknowns, and our heartfelt desire is to love and cherish
everyone involved in this beautiful, heavy hearted journey. Thank you for reading our letter and
possibly entrusting us with a piece of your heart. We would be honored to have the opportunity
to meet you.

With great love and appreciation,
Matt, Julie and Maggie

Our Story. . .

Matt and I met in January 2012. Matt lived just a block away
from my parent’s house at the time, but we ended up meeting
through a dating website. We immediately had a connection,
and after dating for a several months we started thinking about
a future together.

"Surround yourself with those who make you happy"

Matt proposed to me on my family's annual
camping trip to Yellowstone Park in July of 2012 and then we
tied the knot just 3 months later.

It was a whirl wind of a year, but I guess when you know it’s
meant to be, things happen in a blink of an eye. We have a very
strong marriage that's built on love, trust and respect. We love
spending time together, going out to eat, traveling and just
hanging around the house. We communicate and face all of
life's challenges together.
We hope you will always want to be present in our lives

Why Adoption. . .

I’ve always wanted to be a mother and I became one to Maggie
(my step-daughter) the day Matt and I said, ‘I do’. We became a
family of three but knew in our hearts that we wanted to grow
as a family. After almost 4 years of trying to conceive, we decided
that we wanted to explore adoption.

Adoption is close to our hearts.

Matt’s little sister and two
cousins joined the family through adoption, so adoption is close
to our hearts.

Our Hearts. . .

If you choose for our paths to connect, we hope you will always want to be present
in our lives as we desire to have a lifelong relationship with you filled with respect
and joy.

We will always cherish you and the sacrifices you made for your baby. We will teach
your child about love, generosity, and compassion.

We will respect you and your decisions through the entire process.

We will share our faith and give
them guidance and support through all of life’s uncertainties.
Please know that we will love you and your child unconditionally. Our hearts are
open, willing and eagerly awaiting to welcome you and your child into our family.
Lastly, and most importantly, we will respect you and your decisions through the
entire process.
