Dear Expectant Mother,
We cannot express the level of excitement we feel for the opportunity to welcome home a child. We are so blessed to have a home where there is always love in the air. The only thing missing is the pitter patter of feet running about, yelling, “daddy!” No matter how simple it is, a child looks to us for leadership and guidance. Through spending time with them, we want to show them they are our focus and we love them no matter what choices they make.
When we welcome your child into our home, it will not lack attention and care. We have taken steps to ensure that your baby will be protected. We want to keep our family unit safe. Whether we’re talking insurance or assurance through rough times, your child will receive it. As they grow and begin to attend school, we will be there to support their education and attend the various events where parents get to witness first-hand what the child is learning through science fairs and spelling bees, and the list goes on.
We have so much love for each other that we cannot wait to share with your child. We are so excited about the opportunity of opening our home and expanding our family. We are beyond ready to take on the responsibility of caring, loving and nurturing your child. It would give us great pleasure to welcome your child into our family. We do not take this responsibility lightly. We can only imagine the weight on your shoulders to make the right decision for your baby, and we respect that.
Matthew works as an emergency medical technician and volunteer firefighter. He has been in public service for 22 years. Andrew is a realtor who loves to help people find a good home. He is a Texas native who captured Matt’s heart. We recently moved back to Texas to be close with family as we love sharing memories with ones we love. The move to Texas was in preparation to adding a child to our family. We grew up spending so much time surrounded by family that we knew we wouldn’t want to raise our child any other way. One of our favorite things to do is get curled up on the couch watching a good Hallmark Christmas movie with hot chocolate by the fireplace.
We have a lovely 2 story home that has plenty of space for building forts in the living room, watching movies in the media room or just running around in the backyard. We live in a friendly residential neighborhood, with an active facebook community, where they always have activities and events put together for families. We live within walking distance to an elementary and middle school and right down the road from the high school as well. We have three dogs that are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their brother or sister to cuddle and protect. We are always in the process of updating features of the home to meet our needs or simply to make it feel warmer.
Our Extended Family
Because we live close to a lot of family, every year we get together for all the major holidays such as Easter, Christmas, and Thanksgiving. But our time together reaches beyond that to include Father’s Day and Mother’s Day and pretty much anyone’s birthday. The family loves to celebrate the birthdays of the little ones with parties. Even still, members of the family find time to go to the Rodeo, festivals, and other fun community events together.
At our home specifically, we love to decorate for the holidays. It’s not merely a single tree erected in the living room, but a process that lasts weeks. We love the warm and loving feel the holidays bring us. We watch Christmas movies and drink hot cocoa. We can’t wait to include our baby in the sounds and sights of the holidays and to include them in our family activities. The whole family loves babies and little ones. They will be so excited to share with us in welcoming home our child. They are always willing to lend a hand should the need arise for a babysitter.
What Led Us To Adoption
Being a part of the LGBT community, we know many people who have chosen adoption to grow their family. Seeing our friends’ families and their interactions, we saw love and care conveyed. We attend social functions and enjoy seeing how happy those kids are. We’ve been able to see adoption stories at different stages and without regard to the background, there were never any regrets. When we first got together we talked about kids and it’s something we’ve both wanted for a long time. After being together for six and a half years and seeing many of our friends fill their homes through adoption, we couldn’t be more excited to start this journey of our own and finally begin to grow our family!
