Matt & Ashley
We believe that fate led us to this special moment in time. If you choose us to be your child's parents, you will be giving us the most precious gift in life. We'll dedicate the rest of our lives to loving them with everything we have, protecting them, and investing all of our energy into ensuring they become the best version of themselves. We want to provide a life full of happiness, experiences, and gratitude. Thank you for considering us, we are so truly grateful.
Our Life Priorities
Since the moment we met, and first started dating, we had lengthy talks about who we were as individuals, and what our priorities were in life. It is no secret that "family" was at the top of each of our lists, as that is something that both families have instilled in us since the day we were born. We were fortunate to be raised in such loving homes, where the focus of every celebration and holiday was always spending times with our loved ones. Family gatherings were, and still are frequent, and we celebrate all birthdays, anniversaries, and EVERY holiday surrounded by those we love.
When it came time to talk about starting a family, it has always been discussed that Ashley will step away from her work as a speech-language pathologist, in order to devote her time and energy into raising our family, as a stay-at-home mom. It has always been a dream of hers, as a natural care-taker, to share in every memory and witness all of life's milestones, as our children grow up. Matt also has the flexibility, as he owns his own business, to adjust work schedules, in order to participate and share in those memories as well. The support from our families is unending, and we can't wait to pass along the core values that were instilled in us, with our children as well.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Matt About Ashley: I've never met another person in life who gave more of herself to others. Ashley gets her energy and self-worth by being a care-taker and giving to others. When co-workers are down or had a terrible life event, Ashley is the one who finds a way to lift them up or show her support. When our puppies have a birthday or it's a holiday, she dresses them up and makes an over the top celebration because she genuinely loves them and wants them to feel special. Anytime a friend or family member needs help with anything at all, Ashley is the one who everyone not only depends on, but she is proactively doing things to benefit others. It's never about doing something so people owe her a favor. Ashley's purpose in life was to be a mother, and to share that gift with our future children. All of these amazing qualities are who she is, and the child that's fortunate to have Ashley as a mother hit the world's largest lottery jackpot.
Ashley About Matt: It truly was love at first sight when I met Matt. He is the most patient, loyal, understanding, and honorable man I have ever met. He is a hard worker, who has a passion for learning, supporting and mentoring others, and loving his family with all he has. He values family above all else, and makes it a priority to ensure that we know how much we are loved, each and every day. There is not a day that goes by where he leaves the house, comes home from work, or gets off the phone without a kiss or an "I Love You" for me. He truly is a kid at heart and it's been amazing to see him interact and play with our niece and nephew, and not to mention his daily play time with our dog Luca, where he is on all fours. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I consider myself incredibly lucky to call myself his partner and wife.
Our Family Dream
We dream that our child will grow into an adult who is a genuinely good human being, who spends the majority of their life happy and can look back on their childhood with fond memories and feel that they had the best possible upbringing that they could have imagined.
We dream that they feel fulfilled with their life, and that they meet and fall in love with a life partner they can take life's journey with. Someone who deserves them, who loves and respects them, who appreciates them for exactly who they are, who makes them happy, and one that they can eventually build a family of their own with.
We dream that this child will become our greatest source of joy and we'll take pride in seeing them grow and flourish and accomplish bigger and more meaningful milestones and dreams that they have for themselves.
We dream that we'll have wonderful memories, events, vacations, and activities that we enjoy together.
We dream that they will develop a strong character and integrity, and be a well-rounded person who thrives in all situations and develops genuine relationships easily with others.
We dream that our child develops a sense for hope and optimism, and self-belief that they can be the light they wish they see in the world. We hope they will be kind to others, and develop a passion around impacting other people's lives.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live just outside of Denver, Colorado, in a historic brick bungalow that characterizes the charm and traditions that our neighborhood embodies. We have 3 bedrooms, with a spacious finished basement that has a ton of room for toys and a play area. The house is fenced in and has a great back yard for running around, playing ball, and family barbecues.
We have families with children and pets everywhere! Great schools nearby, and one of our city's nicest and largest parks is only 4 blocks away, where we take our dogs, and run around the scenic 2.5 mile loop, often. Along with the park, we also have just about everything within walking distance- playgrounds, bike rentals, paddle boats/lake, kids fishing, restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream, and we take advantage of that convenience whenever we can. We have fantastic neighbors, who look out for one another, and whose families are centered around their children.
Our community park hosts sports practices (soccer, lacrosse, cross country), summer camps, mommy and me groups, and has BBQ areas for family gatherings. And the recreation center, located in the park, has a pool, where we plan to spend a lot more time in the summers.
We are lucky call this our home, and feel it is the perfect place to raise our family.
Our Extended Families
Ashley's family is extremely close. We get together a few times a month, and talk just about every day. They're the cool family in terms of being the fun ones who are always planning events and looking to have a good time. They take vacations together, cookouts, dinners, concerts, dancing, and any fun family events.
Matt has an all-American family, centered around his grandmother, and niece and nephew who are the family's pride and joy. The women in Matt's family have all been selfless in their careers, dedicating their lives to helping others. Spending time with Matt's family is a constant reminder about what a being a good person looks like. They are competitive, love playing games and sports, and value all of the holiday traditions and activities that revolve around kids, while taking TONS of pictures together.
Both families are 100% on board and excited for us to become parents, and will be very active in our children's lives. We have so much love to give to this little one, and loads of support for us as well. We consider ourselves very lucky, and can't wait to share these experiences with our children!
From Us to You
While undoubtedly, this may be one of the most difficult times in your life, we hope to provide you with some comfort in your decision making process, should you choose us as your child's adoptive parents.
We have been together for 7 years, and married for 3 now, and neither one of us have ever been more confident in any decision than the day we said our vows to one another, as husband and wife. The love we have for each other is beyond words, and we can't wait to share that unending love with this child.
When we were married, we were so excited to start our family, but the universe had different plans. After a very long emotional and medical journey including attempts at IVF and surgery, we learned our fate. It was impossible for us to have biological children. After taking time to grieve and considering all of our options, we realized that adoption presents us with an incredible opportunity. With so much love to give, we now know that this was the path we were meant to take all along. Children are the most precious gift we could ever receive, and we will cherish every moment and memory we have as a family. We have even more love and motivation to give them the life we know we can provide them, as we have continued on life's journey for us and our family.
It's so hard to imagine how you must be feeling, or what words could be expressed to help you in your decision making process, but we want you to know that if you decide that we are who you envisioned as your child's adoptive parents, and believe as we do that can provide them with the life you imagined, we want to be there to support you as you work through the ups and downs of this process as well. We are committed to maintaining a relationship with you, so that you can always find comfort in the knowledge that you made the most self-less decision, in order to provide your child with a better life. While you may not have the answers now, nor do we, we want to work together to ensure that this transition is one that remains a lifelong partnership, so that we are ALWAYS doing what is best for them. This is our promise and our commitment to you, that this will always be something we honor, value, and prioritize as we raise this child.
These commitments are things that we do not take lightly, and your gift to us will never be taken for granted. Please know that we will do everything we can to support this little one's understanding of who they are, where they come from, and how much they are truly loved by ALL of us. As we said before you are making the most difficult decision, potentially of your entire life, and we want you to know that we are eternally grateful for you, and providing us with the most precious gift that life can offer.
This child will be loved unconditionally, and if ultimately you do choose us for your child's adoptive parents, please know we are committed to giving everything we have each and every day to providing that support, love and guidance they deserve.
Tears have been running down both of our faces as we've been attempting to put into words what we want to share with you and what this responsibility and blessing means to us.
Based on the people that we are, our love for one another, our solid foundation we have across all areas in life, and our passion to be the very best parents we can be for this child, we have no doubt that we will be incredible parents and offer your child the life you would love to see them have.
Thank you for your bravery and selflessness. We will forever be grateful.
