Matt & Becky
We can only imagine that this must be a difficult decision for you. Although we've never met, we know you must be extremely brave to choose this path for your child. If you choose us, we can assure you this child will be in some of the best hands possible. We hope that you consider us and we look forward to this next chapter in our lives.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Becky About Matt:
Matt is such a happy person! He can make me smile even when I've had the worst day. He is always so kind and giving towards other people. It is very hard for him to say no to people when they ask for his help. Matt knows almost everyone! Going to Walmart can be a couple hours long because he sees so many people and has to talk with them and catch up. (Especially if it's a current or former student.) Everyone loves him and speaks so highly of him.
Matt About Becky:
I love Becky's unconditional love for her family and her appreciation of the simple things in life. Having a family of her own will only exponentially grow that love for being around family and friends! Becky has such a motherly demeanor around kids. Being a 1st grade teacher has been such a joy in her life and it shows in the love and respect that you see between her and her students. I can't wait to see my wife shine when she is able to focus that energy towards our own child!
Education We will Provide
Since we are both public school teachers, education is highly valued in our family. Our parents, the child’s future grandparents, have already started college funds for their current grandkids. They plan on doing the same for our children as well. Becky has her Master’s Degree and Matt is currently finishing his Master’s Degree. We see the value every day in our classrooms of what a proper education can do for a child. We both have had such positive experiences with our own educations and grown up with multiple teachers that have affected our life choices, we could only hope for the same for our own children. Becky actually works at the same school as her former Kindergarten teacher! We believe that education should be a top priority for our children and we intend to do everything we can to provide that for them. School is not just an education, it's a beautiful journey.
Our Pets, Beethoven & Lily
We have one cat and one dog in our house and they are both the light of our lives. Our cats name is Beethoven. Matt named her because he is a music teacher and we thought it was fitting. We rescued her as a kitten just a few months after we were married so we think she is about 8 years old. She is pretty shy around new people but warms up to them with time. Our dog’s name is Lily and she is a Golden Retriever. She loves people and loves to be the center of attention! Our little family wouldn’t be the same without her! When we talk about her, people think she is our child and we gladly accept that. We have trained her to be a therapy dog so she is very gentle and kind when she meets new people. Lily came into our lives right in the middle of our infertility journey. She filled a void that had been empty for a very long time. She eased our baby fever at just the right time. We hope the love we show her lets her know just how special she truly is to the both of us.
Our Extended Families
Family is one of the most important aspects of our lives. We wouldn't be where we are today without the love and support of both sides of our family.
We are very lucky to live in the same city as both our parents. Matt's parents live just a couple blocks away and Becky's parents live about 7 miles out of town on about 5 acres of land. So, this means we see our parents a lot.
We spend each holiday with our family. For Christmas, we like to split our time between families. We spend the morning with Becky's family then we will have lunch with Matt's family. Becky's mom loves to cook, so she will cook up a lovely assortment of food for any holiday meal. She always cooks enough for leftovers, which lets us savor our food for just a few more meals!
Both our families are very supportive of adoption. Matt's parents actually went through the adoption process when they were first married. They got pregnant with Matt and his twin sister during their adoption journey so they decided to focus on their twins. Matt also has 5 first cousins that are adopted. It is nice to have this much family supporting us with their own experiences and stories.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a very family-friendly community in the wonderful state of Kansas. All our neighbors know each other and we spend lots of time outside talking about how our day went. We always say we have the best neighborhood watch in town! We are always looking out for each other! The 4th of July is usually one big block party. There are multiple families with young kids ranging from birth to 3 years old. There's always someone out going for a walk with their little ones throughout the warmer months.
We live in a 5-bedroom, 3-bath ranch style home. Our favorite room in the house is the family/living room. This is where we host game nights and watch movies with friends and family. It's also where we like to relax at the end of a long day. Matt also has a piano room where he holds some of his voice lessons for local high schoolers.
Our home is near one of the best Blue Ribbon elementary schools in our district. They have an extremely active PTO and student body and are only located about 2 blocks from our home. They have a great playground and gazebo area that's perfect for a stop on a walk.
From Us to You
First and foremost, thank you for the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to learn more about us. The hopes and dreams we have for this child are endless. Unconditional love, endless support, the best education possible, and a safe and stable home to grow up in are just some of the many things we want to provide to a little one. This child will be welcomed not just by us, but also our entire extended family.
We have been married for almost 8 years now. We met in college and have been inseparable ever since. We are both teachers and have a love and passion for children. We always joke that Becky has 18 children from her first grade class and Matt has over 100 from his middle school choir. We would adopt them all as our own if we could!
In our free time we like to spend lots of time with family and friends. We enjoy bon fires at Becky’s parents house in the country, spending time at Matt's parents house enjoying each others company, and game nights with friends. We love to laugh and create new memories with the people we love. We appreciate the joys of getting outside and taking in a beautiful walk with our dog, Lily. Cooking a meal together in the evenings and just relaxing on the couch to watch a movie is always a favorite choice of ours as well! Adding a child to our family makes us excited to think about all the things we look forward to sharing with them!
We would love to share life’s joys with you through pictures and letters if that’s what you desire. Email and Facebook are also a great way to communicate with each other. We are very open to having this child keep contact with you. We feel this will only positively impact their future and can only grow love even stronger knowing this child has two sets of parents in their lives.
If you choose us, we promise you will always be spoken of highly in our home. Your child will always know of your selfless love for them! As a mother, you may have concerns about giving your child to complete strangers. However, we want to calm your heart, and to let you know that we are here for your child, you, and the child’s birth family. It is our wish that you know that you will be welcome in your child’s life. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and you would be part of that village! We are proud to be a part of an adoptive culture in our extended family, and we hope this shows you so much comfort to know that, not only our immediate family will love this child, but also our entire extended family.
We have hoped and prayed for a child for years and years. Adoption was always in the backs of our minds. Once we found out that getting pregnant wasn’t going to be easy for us, we looked into the options and talked with a lot of friends and family that have gone through the same journey. We have always thought that having a child in our lives didn’t mean it had to be through biology; we would feel the same love for any child that came into our lives, no matter what. We feel like adoption is the journey we were always intended to take, and here we are!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to consider us as potential parents of your child. There are not enough words to express our gratitude in this decision. Your strength and courage is greater than any other thing in this world. We have so much admiration for you and your decision for adoption. We are honored that you have chosen two people that you haven’t even met to love and care for every need this child will ever have. If you choose us, know that you will be a part of this child’s village of care takers and know that your child will be in the arms of the most accepting and loving family.
