Dear Expectant Mother,
Although we have yet to meet you, we are in awe of you. We already know you are a wonderful mother filled with courage and love for your child. Your decision is a blessing to more lives than you will ever know. If we are fortunate enough to be able to care for your child, know that the story of your love will be shared in our home daily and will be the basis of us starting our long-anticipated family.
We look forward to providing your child with the unconditional love we were fortunate to have growing up. We can’t contain our excitement for teaching your child the simple things, like tying shoes, reading, and our hobbies and traditions. We look forward to the inquisitive nature of a child while we are all in the kitchen cooking our favorite meals. We can’t wait for our golf outings and travels to now be focused around your child.
While we can’t say we know your thoughts and emotions as you start your journey, we can tell you we will be happy to be there with a listening ear, love, and support should you choose us for this important role. We wish you the best in your journey and hope we can join and support you along the way.
Matthew was born in San Diego and raised in southern Colorado. Jason grew up in a rural town in Missouri. We met on Valentine’s Day at a crowded music venue. Since that chance meeting ten years ago, we have been inseparable. In 2014 we celebrated our commitment with a small wedding in our home. We both come from very modest backgrounds, where family and hard work are very important. Jason works as a physician in the emergency department. In preparation for the expansion of our family, Matthew has recently transitioned from his field in healthcare IT to his new role as homemaker.
We both share a love for the outdoors and enjoy spending our free time exploring national parks. We also feel right at home on a lake or the nearby rivers. Our favorite pastime is playing bed and breakfast for our friends and family, including 10 nephews and nieces.
We live in Missouri and call a small city with scenic river views home. We own a beautiful home with 4,500 square feet that is ready to be filled. Our city is best known for the quality of its schools, but we like to think it is because of the quality people that live here. Our neighborhood is private and filled with young families. We spend several family nights at nearby golf courses, parks, and a river walk with several family-owned businesses and wonderful restaurants. Our home also has a gated pool where we enjoy our summers. We have three friendly dogs—Valentine, Theodore, and Winston—that will make wonderful companions for your child.
Our Extended Family
Our family is an extremely important part of our lives. They provide us with a tremendous amount of love and support, which is one of the many reasons we feel we are ready to start this next chapter.
Jason’s side of the family lives very close to us, and we visit each other often. They live on a farm, and we enjoy visiting often. Jason’s family loves to camp on a nearby lake. On summer holidays, you can often find us waterskiing, boating, and barbecuing. Matthew’s family lives in Colorado, and we take advantage of every opportunity to go for a visit. We love hiking in the mountains, and this is a family of adventure seekers. We enjoy exploring the nearby peaks and photographing landscapes and animals.
Our family is excited to meet your child and introduce them to our traditions. This is especially the case during the holidays. We alternate our holidays between each family, and we jump at every chance to host the celebrations. Matthew is quite the cook and loves to be in the kitchen, where he always makes too much food. Jason gets caught up in every season’s decorations.
What Led Us To Adoption
Now that we have settled into our careers and community, we feel it is the perfect time to fulfill our dreams of adoption. We have tremendous love and support from our family and friends, and we take great pride in being everyone’s favorite uncles. We previously explored the various options available for expanding our family, and adoption seemed the obvious choice for us. We have seen many amazing families brought together through the miracle of adoption, and we believe we have the perfect environment of love and support to be the best dads we can possibly be. This pathway allows us the opportunity to work together with a birthmother to fulfill her hopes and dreams as well as ours.
