Matt & Meghan
We are very excited about this adoption journey and the love that is growing in our hearts. We are so grateful that you are reviewing our profile and are hopeful that you will allow us the privilege of raising your child in our family. We have prayed for a child for many years and vow to be the best possible parents. We also pray that you would have the strength and courage you need throughout this journey.
Our Family Dream
We have always known we wanted to be parents. We knew we wanted to start a family as soon as we got married. We have a lot of love to give and want to share that with a child. Each child is his or her own little unique person, we look forward to nurturing and helping a child grow into themselves. We've had the opportunity to see our siblings become parents, and we see the love that has blossomed with their families. We look forward to the unconditional love. We understand being a parent is full of joy, but also full of challenges. We are ready to bring a child into our family.
Celebrating and understanding this child's cultural heritage is also very important to us. We are committed to incorporating this learning into everyday life. From the books we read to the toys and games we play; we will ensure this child sees themselves represented. We will strive to ensure they have role models with shared background and ethnicity. We look forward to honoring traditions of the birth family's culture.
We will blend our cultures together as a family, it is important to us that our child identifies and celebrates his or her birth culture as well as adopted culture. We will be open and honest with questions from this child and will continue to learn and grow as a family.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Meghan About Matt: Matt is one of the most caring people Meghan has ever met. He would do anything for the people he loves. Matt is sensitive, smart, patient, loving, understanding and insightful. He is very hardworking, and makes a point do everything to the best of his ability. Matt is very patient and loving with children. He has developed a very special bond with his nieces and nephews. He loves to get down on the floor and play with the younger kids, play Legos or go skating with the older kids.
Matt About Meghan: Meghan is very honest and open. She is unbelievably compassionate, kind, caring, and loving. Meghan is very dedicated to the people that she loves. One of the best things about her is how accepting and understanding she is. I had never experienced this in a relationship before, and it is such an amazing feeling. Meghan loves unconditionally; this is a very rare thing and I am thankful for it every day! She is a very supportive partner and I feel lucky that I met her! Meghan also has an uncanny ability to relate to and talk to anyone that she meets. She is great with kids. This was one of the most important things to me in a partner. I want my children to have the mother they deserve, and she is definitely that.
Our Pups, Sadie & Harper
We have two yellow labs that are a big part of our lives. Sadie is a very active senior who enjoys running, playing fetch, and swimming. She loves to run and play with our nieces and nephews. She is very emotionally intelligent and can always understand when someone needs a little extra love. Harper is very affectionate and laid back. She enjoys cuddles and being petted. She loves hugs and attention from our nieces and nephews. Both our dogs are very patient and calm around the kids, they enjoy the extra love from them. We feel that having pets teach kids compassion, unconditional love, responsibility, and companionship. We couldn't imagine life without a dog.
Our House and Neighborhood
We fell in love with our dream home when we weren't even looking. We walked into a two-story home close by the neighborhood Meghan grew up in and instantly saw us raising a family in this home. Our home is in a quiet neighborhood, which has a mix of young families and retired couples. We love the big back yard, which we fenced in for the dogs. We look forward to adding a swing set to the yard for our children. The first thing we noticed about the home was the large, wood staircase leading upstairs and envisioned taking pictures of our kids on the first day of school each year. As we walked into the kitchen, we noticed there was a short counter in front of the range and pictured making pancakes for the children on Sunday morning. We also love the front room of our home; this is where family tends to gather when we host get togethers. We got married in that room in a private ceremony and with our families. This is our forever home. We look forward to raising our family here and someday having our grandchildren visit.
Our neighborhood is very quiet, but close to schools, parks, and shopping. Our community has a very active park board, with several activities available for children and families. Our local school district is one of the best in the state. It feels as if we live in a small town, with big town amenities.
Our Extended Families
We have a big extended family that is very close knit and supportive. Our families on both sides are very excited to welcome a new child into our family. Most of our family live in the same town as we do. We look forward to this child being raised close to 9 cousins, as well as aunts, uncles and grandparents.
Meghan's family has a lake cabin just a short drive from our town. We spend time there in the summer with her mom, siblings and their families. We enjoy swimming, playing volleyball, or visiting around the campfire. Meghan's family also enjoys gathering together for boisterous family dinners and get together each year to make lefse for the holidays.
It is very common for Matt's family to gather as an extended family for holidays or celebrations. We enjoy spending time with his aunts and uncles, as well as his parents, siblings and their families. Every July we head back to Matt's hometown for their annual community days and enjoy spending time going to the parade, playing bingo with Grandma, and the boys play in the golf tournament.
We both grew up with similar family dynamics. We were raised by parents who grew up in farming communities and placed value in family dinners and quality time. We look forward to raising this child with similar values. We are very close to our parents and our siblings. We are godparents to 4 of our siblings' children. This child will be loved by a large extended family.
From Us to You
We can't quite imagine what it's like to be in your shoes. You have this amazing life growing inside you and you want the best possible life for this child. We are so grateful for the love you have for your child and that you are considering an adoption plan. We are honored to be considered as a family for your child.
We met on a blind date about six years ago and knew very quickly we had found something special in one another. Four years ago, we began our lives together as husband and wife. We believe a strong marriage is the best foundation to start a family and have worked very hard to build an open and honest relationship. We have strived to build communication and our bond as a couple to solidify this base. We will be a strong union for our child, but also role models for the person they will become. We both come from strong family backgrounds and strive to provide the same for our child.
We decided early on in our relationship that it was important to us to have a family and to become parents. After several years of not being able to conceive, we decided to grow our family through adoption. We agreed that biology isn't what makes a family, love is.
This child will have two parents who love them unconditionally and are committed to providing the best possible life for them. They will have a father who gets down on the floor to play with them and will never miss a program, sporting event or activity. They will have mother who will always be there to listen and support in good times and in bad. They will have a strong family dynamic centered around love. We look forward to years of family vacations, holidays and the joys of being together as a family.
Our extended family is also excited to welcome a child into our lives. We both come from warm, loving families that are very close. We value this relationship with our families and try to spend as much time with them as possible. Our child will grow up close to his or her cousins, with the love and support of aunts, uncles and grandparents. This child will be welcomed into our family with loving arms.
We believe it is important to introduce the child's adoption story to them very early on, so they know who they are and where they come from. We want this child to know his or her story was built on love by the birth family as well as the adoptive family. We look forward to sharing pictures, emails, phone calls, and letters in the years to come. We would also love to incorporate any treasured family traditions from the birth family into our lives.
We have a lot of love in our lives and look forward to sharing that with a child. Over the past several years, we have both seen our siblings become parents. We've been there for the good times, as well as the challenging times, but mostly we've seen the love. We look forward to the same unconditional love as we begin our journey as parents.
