State we live in: Virginia

dear expectant mother

First, we would like to tell you thank you. There is no way we can understand what it takes to consider an adoption plan, but we are so thankful for the opportunity to be considered to shower your baby with nothing but love, affection, understanding, and appreciation. Your consideration of letting us share our lives with your baby is nothing less than a blessing. We do not make these statements lightly. What we want most at this time is to help raise a child using the tools our families have provided us and with all the love we have shared over the course of our relationship.

If chosen to raise your baby, we know we would be the best fathers a baby could want and need. We want to share all of our passions with and explore the interests and passions of who that baby will eventually become. Nothing makes us happier than when we are together discussing the future and the possibility of having a baby. When big or little moments happen in our lives, we always look at each other with the same thought: “We can’t wait to do this again with a baby!”

Know this one thing: There is nothing we will commit our lives to more than the development, growth, love, and nurturing of this baby—always and forever.

About Us

We are William and Mathew. William is a doctorate-level educator who works with college students navigating campus housing. Matthew is a board certified behavior analyst who works with school-aged children, primarily those diagnosed with autism, teaching them age-appropriate academic and social skills. We met in West Virginia in 2014 and have not looked back since. Our story is one that involves a lot of personal discoveries, patience, compassion, and, most of all, love. During our relationship, we have lived in four different states and embraced the challenges that came with those moves along the way. We are the resilient and passionate type of people who do not give up easily. If given the opportunity to share our lives with your baby, we know the love we share for one another will only multiply with the addition to our little family.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a lovely apartment community where there are many families with newborns and children. We’re surrounded by historical monuments and landmarks to explore. We have one pet, a dog named Foxy. Foxy was the first addition to our partnership. When Foxy joined our lives, it was the first time, as a couple, we had the opportunity to shower another life with all of the love we give to one another. In our home, we love to decorate throughout the year and make it a bit of a family tradition to do some cleaning and decorating to lighten spirits. Family members live close by and will enjoy nothing more than to meet and love our future child.

Our Extended Family

William grew up near where we are living currently. William has family as close as 45 minutes away. Matthew’s parents live four hours away in another state, while the rest of his extended family are in another region of the country. Whether near or far, everyone in our immediate and extended family is excited to share in this next milestone.

William’s family includes his father (in spirit), mother, two brothers, sister, sister-in-law, and nephews. Matthew’s family includes his father, mother, sister, brother, niece, and nephew.

We believe it is very important to spend holidays with family. Traditionally, we alternate whose family we spend the major end-of-year holidays with. At these family gatherings, both sides of the family focus on the importance of being together, spending quality time together (catching up, playing games, and watching movies), and eating a LOT of food.

What Led Us To Adoption

William grew up in a family that includes an adopted sibling. Never has having an adopted sibling made William feel different; his adopted sibling is simply a member of his family. Matthew has always wanted to adopt a child to provide a home that is filled with love for a child. From the beginning of our relationship, we have always considered adoption as an option in the future (once we were ready for a baby in our lives). We now feel there is no better time like the present to share our love with a baby and to begin expanding our family.
