Hello! We are Matt and Nicole from the park-filled burbs of exciting Chicago. Life for us is full of the best of both worlds. College sweethearts, we've been married over six years. We want nothing more in this world than to be parents. Thanks for taking the time to learn more about us and our four-legged friends.
We stay pretty active during our free time - everything from bike rides and dog walks to golfing and playing tennis.
Our favorite courts are located just down the block from us, next to a park and walking path. Nicole taught three- to five-year-old tennis throughout college and can’t wait to share this hobby with a child. Matt looks forward to sharing his love of fishing and golfing.
We both also love going to the zoo and have family that live close to one of the best zoos in the country, which we’ve been to more times than we can count.
We try to make it a point to be tourists in our own city too. Living a short train ride from Chicago, we regularly go to Cubs, Chicago Fire, Bulls and Bears games - not to mention fun shows at the Chicago Theatre. Strolling along the sands of Lake Michigan’s beaches is another unique experience we’re thankful to have access to. However, we’ve come to find that the train ride alone is often just as fun for the kids in our extended family! We are so excited to introduce a child to all of these and many other experiences.
Since getting married over six years ago, our desire to be parents has continued to grow, despite years of unsuccessful attempts and two miscarriages, which in the end have only made us stronger and want to be parents that much more.
To us, it's not about being pregnant, but becoming parents, that's most important. We are so thankful to be able to have the opportunity to pursue adoption as our path to becoming parents.
