Hello! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves. We’re Matt and Krista and we have been together for over seven years, married for just over five and have a loving, stable relationship. Some of the values we share together are an importance of God, family, and love and respect for all people. We balance each other and work hard to show one another how much we love and value one another. We are best friends and make a great team, however; we are missing a piece of the puzzle, a child. To bring home a child to love, teach, and watch grow is our dream come true.
We are unable to have a biological child, but we believe that there are no accidents in life. Looking back, we now know that adoption has been God’s plan for us all along. Matt’s mom and uncle are adopted by his grandparents so we know firsthand that sharing DNA is not required for family. Starting a family has always been in our plans and we are so excited for the prospect of adoption. We also recognize that this may be a difficult time for you. It is impossible for us to imagine all of the emotions you are experiencing right now. Our sincere hope for this adoption is that we, together with you, can create something beautiful – a child who will grow and flourish into a wonderful person and productive member of society.
If you decide to make an adoption plan and choose us to parent your child, we promise to deeply respect you in all moments leading up to your child’s birth and well beyond. We are excited to share with you the special moments as your child grows up. We will send you emails, letters, and photos of the big moments, as well as the everyday moments. Should you want more contact with us, we will be thrilled to have a relationship with you. We are already researching ways that we can send you photos and videos on a daily or weekly basis, such as a private shared social media site. If you would welcome us, we would look forward to visiting you in your home state as well. Whatever contact you decide on, know that no matter how old your child is, wherever they go in this world, they will know that you love them beyond words. No matter the contact you choose with us, you will always be a part of our family and we will speak of you often and with love.
Know that we will cherish and love your child with all of our hearts and provide a safe, happy home and life. We both had wonderful childhoods with strong role models in our parents and grandparents. We cannot wait to provide your child every opportunity we had and more. By guiding this child with strong values, we will allow him or her to grow into the person he or she is meant to be. We will support their path in this world, whether they love to dance and sing (Krista’s forte) or play sports (Matt’s wheelhouse). We will ensure they have the opportunity to try out different interests and find out what fits their passion. We will hold them up when they fall and celebrate them when they soar.
We understand that the decision of adoption and selecting parents will be one of the most important decisions of your life, for both you and this child. Should you choose us to parent, know that we are here with open arms, ready and waiting to welcome you and your child into our lives. If you choose us, we promise that your child’s well-being and happiness will be the center of our world. We will love your child unconditionally and with every ounce of our being. We will do everything we can do be the parents that your child deserves.
Know that we are praying for you and your sweet baby throughout this pregnancy.
Matt and Krista
