abby & Matt
Hello! We are Abby and Matt, thank you for taking the time to consider us as potential adoptive parents to your child.
We’re grateful just for the chance to sit knee-to-knee with you these next few minutes. That you’re considering your options speaks volumes to how much you already love your child, and during a time where you probably feel alone, please know we’re standing with you, whether you choose to place or parent.
We can’t pretend for a moment that we understand what you’re facing, but we do understand that life doesn’t always work out how we’d planned. Through loss of our own we find ourselves here, looking forward to growing our family through adoption, and we are so very excited about becoming parents! Our heart is to provide a home for a child that allows them to fully know how cherished, valued and wanted they are, and that they are fiercely loved by their Heavenly Father.
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us! Please know that we are praying for you- for peace, comfort, and discernment as you face the days ahead. We’re rooting for you, no matter what.
Matt & Abby
Matt's a whiz at...
Baseball facts- his goal is to see a game in all 30 Major League stadiums!
Pop culture trivia- he's got an astoundingly wide range of knowledge and is absolutely the guy you want on your team for trivia night. Seriously- this guy should be on Jeopardy
Serving others- if there's a need, he meets it without asking. He's "that guy" who will always be there for a friend in need. We both love volunteering at our church!
Abby's life goals include...
Finally getting her Hogwarts letter (it was definitely lost in the mail)
Being the voice of a Disney Princess- she'll admit it's a stretch, but she sings around the house enough that it's not a far cry from her day-to-day life!
Being fluent in French- she loves everything about the language and culture, and could definitely survive on a diet of croissants and café au laits.!

Before you go…
Thank you again for taking the time to get to know us! We hope that after seeing and reading our story you’ve caught a glimpse of the love we have for each other and our village of family & friends! Above all, we hope you feel PEACE in the midst of difficulty. Below are just a few parting thoughts before you go.
If you choose adoption and you choose us, here is what we promise as parents:
To raise him or her as part of the body of Christ, to feel secure in their identity as a cherished, precious child of God
To bring our son or daughter up in a home where they will always feel heard, respected, and safe
That our child will always know where their story started, and to honor you as part of our family’s story
To teach them how to seek adventure, to show them more of the world than just what’s in front of them
To maintain a heart for potential openness in our adoption, as long as it’s healthy for everyone at the table
To choose family over long hours at the office, and to never make our child question whether we love our work more than our family
Lastly, we wanted to leave you with a verse that has been an encouragement to us. Psalm 119:105- “Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light to my path.” We know firsthand what it’s like to feel lost, overwhelmed, and wondering what to do next, and our prayer is that in this next step, whatever that is for you, that you experience peace and comfort stepping forward.
