dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We want to first take a moment to share our gratitude for taking the time to consider us during the adoption process. Thank you. We can’t begin to fathom how difficult of a decision this could be and wish to be supportive in any way possible.

We want to assure you your baby will be loved endlessly. Both of us have wanted to be fathers for as long as we can remember. Loving your child will be our top priority, and we both promise this to you. We have always spoken about wanting to cherish and raise a little boy or girl, to show them the world and give them endless love from us and our loving families, from spoiling them during holidays such as Christmas and unforgettable birthday parties filled with fun and love. At the end of the day, our goal is to raise our future son or daughter to grow into being a good person.

We want to assure you that there won't be a second of the day when they will go unloved or uncared for. The fact of the matter is that this child will become the reason for our living and will complete our family, making our house turn into a home for many, many years to come.

About Us

We are two health care professionals who love traveling and outdoor adventures. Matt is a critical care registered nurse and a geek at heart who loves nature documentaries, reading, Harry Potter, and anything that has to do with swimming and water activities. Miguel is the more hip one of the two. He loves music, working out, and being a great host when guests and family come for a visit. At the end of the day, Matt’s love of cooking brings us together around the kitchen table as we share a home-cooked meal.

Our Home & Pets

We live in Washington, not far from the water of Puget Sound. Our neighborhood is in the center of multiple trails and parks, with Mt. Rainer in view from every angle. Our dog, Riley, loves to walk on these trails and watch the local kids play as if she’s thinking she can’t wait for one of her own. A young pup at three years old, she is the most loving dog, who loves kisses, cuddles, and the occasional snack that is dropped from the table.

Our Extended Family

Miguel’s parents are from El Salvidor and speak Spanish as their primary language while enjoying some of the customs they grew up with. Salvadorian-inspired food during the holidays is something both his parents enjoy making. Miguel's mother already cannot wait to knit for the baby. Matt's mother grew up in the suburbs of Southern California and has a more Americanized upbringing and traditions. However, she does enjoy making some traditional tamales, pozole, and Mexican sweet bread during the holidays. Matt’s sister has two twin boys.

Holidays are fun for us. We both love to decorate with lights and decorations all over our home. Every holiday is a chance to celebrate. Whether it is a BBQ with some cousins at a beach house for the Fourth of July or a full Christmas or Thanksgiving feast, we love getting family together to share these moments.

We also have created a support system of close friends whom we’ve nicknamed our chosen family. Close friends who have become like family have surrounded us to create a loving environment. We all support, love, and encourage one another to live each other’s full potential.

What Led Us To Adoption

Our desire to become a family comes down to the opportunity to give a child love and a life full of adventure and opportunities. We live a life that consists of lots of love, travel, laughs, and food and are eager to share that with a child of our own. We often talk about dreams we have for our future baby and places we want to travel to and show them as we teach them to be accepting toward everyone’s background and that everyone has their own unique story.
