Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents! We are a fun, supportive, compassionate couple and have a loving, stable relationship. Should you choose us, we will cherish and love your child with all of our hearts and provide a safe and happy home life. We will do everything we can to be the parents that your child deserves. Please know we are praying for you and your sweet baby throughout this pregnancy.
We are excited about the opportunity to welcome a child of a different cultural background into our family. We are hoping to provide this child with a unique outlook on their own cultural heritage. We are looking forward to providing this child with the opportunity to explore not only their own cultural identity, but others as well. We are connected with other families who have adopted children from a different culture and we want to ensure this child has people in his or her life who can relate to their own unique experience. We recognize that it will take more than just the two of us teach this child everything about their heritage. We will seek out others with similar backgrounds to help model for this child and talk with them about their own experiences.
We are fortunate to live in a part of Washington state with people of different ethnicities, as well as people who speak different languages and practice different religions. We both have the daily opportunity to work with people of different backgrounds and heritages. With Krista’s work on a college campus, she has enjoyed many opportunities to celebrate diversity and strengthen her understanding of the utmost importance of cultural inclusivity.
We live a fun and active lifestyle that is enriched by meaningful, quality time with our family and friends. No matter what activity we choose for a morning, day or weekend, we enjoy it because we’re doing it together. We are truly a team and look forward to adding another teammate to our family.
Krista is an excellent cook and we enjoy a home-cooked meal most evenings. Time in the kitchen is never spent alone and Matt often assists as sous chef, taste tester, or clean up crew. We cherish the time that we gather over a meal and use this as a way to catch up with one another and talk about what is going on in our lives or the world.
We love being outdoors and consider it our “happy place”. One of our favorite activities is to spending time at our family property on a lake, kayaking, boating, fishing, or just floating around on a tube. We enjoy going for hikes in the mountains, camping by rivers, or barbequing in our backyard with family and friends.
We enjoy traveling and exploring new cities. We think it is important to understand different ways of life – whether they are an hour away or across the world. One of our favorite things to do together is to explore a town we have never experienced before. We are excited to help this child experience other places and cultures.
We can't wait to be parents! Becoming parents is something we have always looked forward to. We envision raising a child with the same morals and values we were raised with - the importance of loving and serving others, pursuing education, and hard work.
Becoming parents is not a responsibility we take lightly. When we become parents, it will not only be our responsibility to love and provide for this child, but we will be his or her protector, teacher, counselor, and role model. It is important for us to set a good example for a child, who surely will be observing every movement and listening to every word. We know that the examples we set for this child as parents will help shape their actions and thoughts towards others.
