Matt has one brother and one sister, both of whom are married and live near Matt's parents on the east coast. Each of them have a little boy. Matt's parents are now retired so they come to visit often, which is great! We are very close to his siblings, in fact Molly was the matron-of-honor in Matt's sister's wedding, and we speak to them all the time. We also get to see them several times a year and like to take family vacations together.
Molly's family all live nearby, which is a lot of fun. Molly's sister and her husband have a little girl and a boy the same age as our daughter so we spend a ton of time with them. Molly's mom is also retired and has already promised to help out with a new baby - she can't wait to be a grandma again!
Both of our families are so excited about this adoption and can't wait to love this child with all of their hearts. Our families are very important to us, and we are blessed that we get to see and talk to them so often.
We live in a very family-focused neighborhood just outside of a major metropolitan city. Our home is very cozy and gets a lot of natural sunlight so it always makes you feel happy to step inside. We have a huge family room where we like to spend a lot of our time and hang out with our family and friends. Our favorite part of the house is the backyard. We have a screened in porch where we can enjoy the summer nights without any bugs and a grassy yard where a child can play and explore.
Our community is perfect for families! There are several great schools within walking distance of our house and several parks with playgrounds and tennis courts around the corner. Every year there is a huge 4th of July parade and barbeque, and Halloween is always a blast with kids running around in costumes a fun party for families to enjoy. We are also very close to a lake, which provides us beautiful views all year round! And, since it is Wisconsin, there is a perfect sledding hill just around the corner! We look forward to the day when we can take our children sledding together!
Our best friends and Molly's sister live only a few blocks away and we see them and all of their children every week. A child would have so many friends to play with and grow up with in our neighborhood. Plus the city is only a few miles away, with a great zoo and several museums to explore, including a children's discovery world.
