Matt & Kristy
Thank you for taking the time to read through our profile! We know adoption is a difficult decision and we are so thankful that you would consider us as adoptive parents for your child. From the moment we met both of our sons, we fell in love, and we cannot wait to become parents again. We have so much love to give and are excited for this journey with you.
Adoption in Our Lives
We were fortunate enough to adopt both of our sons, Rowan and Liam. From the moment we met them, we just knew that they were meant to be part of our family. We've learned through adopting our children that sometimes what actually happens in your life can be even better than what you dreamed. We didn't think that we would look to adoption to have a family, but we are thankful every day that we did. Without a doubt, they are our children and we feel so lucky that we were chosen to be their parents. It has also allowed us to be witness to an unbelievable amount of courage, maturity and love. We had the pleasure of meeting both of our children's birth moms when they were born. We were in awe of their ability to make such a selfless decision for their children. Both birth moms love their boys so much that they were able to make the best choice for each of their lives, regardless of it being difficult for them. Now that we are wanting to add another child to our family, we feel blessed to be doing it once again through adoption. We know that our next child is meant to be part of our family as well and we can't wait to meet him or her.
Education We will Provide
We strongly believe that building a foundation to allow our children to grow and thrive starts with education. We know that education is not a “one size fits all” model, and we will follow that philosophy starting with this child’s first education experience. We are lucky to live in an area that offers open enrollment (school choice), so our children will be able to attend a school of our choosing. This will allow us to select the school that fits their personality, needs, and interests.
Outside of formal education, we will offer this child plenty of opportunities to grow and learn inside our home. Kristy has a passion for reading that she wants to share with your child, beginning at a young age with bedtime stories and reading time. Matt’s love of history, music and art are interests he is eager to share with your child. Most of all, we believe a well-rounded education is the best gift we can give your child. We are excited to see what interests develop, supporting and loving your child’s passions just as much as we love our own.
We have a very active and social lifestyle. We are fortunate to have made a lot of close friends in our community and have so much fun spending time with them and their families. We love to entertain in our home, so we’ll often have friends and family over for dinner, a football game, or a game night. We also enjoy being outside - whether it’s going for walks, grilling on the patio, going out on the boat or swimming in the lake, or out gardening and playing in the yard.
We also lead a very healthy lifestyle. We both exercise regularly through sports, classes at the gym, or just going on walks with our sons and dog (they love the walks too!). We love to cook and we are always trying out new recipes that incorporate veggies from our garden or healthy options from the store - but always delicious! Travel is also a big part of our lifestyle. Whether it's visiting friends and family or trying out a new destination, we love the opportunity to get out of town for a bit, experience something new, and have fun as a family. We love the life we have created for ourselves.
Our Extended Families
Our family is such an important part of our life. Both sets of our parents live close by, which allows us to spend a good amount of time together. We each have one brother. Matt’s brother is married with two boys. Both brothers live further away than we’d like, but we all make an effort to be a part of each other’s lives and visits are frequent. Our family gatherings are always occasions we look forward to, filled with conversation, reminiscing, and most of all laughter. Family to us has always meant warmth, love, respect, acceptance and understanding. It is these shared values that has helped our family create this bond and continue to grow closer as the years go on.
When we shared our plans to add to our family through adoption again, the excitement and happiness was overwhelming. Our family is so thrilled to see us become parents again and to see Rowan and Liam with a new sibling. They all can’t wait to meet this new child and welcome him or her into this loving family we’ve all created. Growing up, we both had special relationships with our grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. We are so excited to give these same memories and relationships to our children.
Our House and Neighborhood
Living in our town gives us the best of both worlds. We are located within 1-2 hours from three major cities, but our home is in a small lake community that many people choose as a vacation spot. We are lucky to call it home year-round.
Our home sits on a wooded lot across the street from a large lake. It is a two-story house with four bedrooms and bathrooms. Our favorite room is the family room. With its big fireplace and large windows, the room is cozy and perfect for family gatherings. Just down the road, we have a beautiful park with sand volleyball, picnic areas, and a playground.
Throughout the year our area hosts many different festivals for families to enjoy. Some of our favorites are Winterfest, which showcases amazing ice sculptures, hot chocolate and ice-sailing out on the lake; Corn and Brat Fest with delicious Wisconsin corn, fireworks on the lake, and games for kids; and the Antique Boat Show with hundreds of wooden boats on display, live music, art shows and boat rides. There are so many activities for families year round - boating, sailing, swimming piers, hiking, farmers markets, hayrides and pony rides, petting zoos, apple picking, skiing and sledding are just some of the things we enjoy. We couldn’t ask for a more friendly and supportive community to raise a child!
From Us to You
We cannot begin to imagine how difficult it is for you to consider creating an adoption plan for your child. We know this is a decision that comes from you wanting to give your child the best life possible. It is selfless and a choice that we know comes from a place of pure love for your child. We know we can’t make this decision easy but we want to support you through this process in any way we can.
Our names are Kristy and Matt. When we met, we knew almost immediately that we had found a partner in one another. After being together for seven years (married for five), our love and respect for each other has only deepened. We have learned to depend on one another as a partner in all of life’s highs and lows. We work hard to keep our relationship happy and solid - and have a lot of fun along the way! Becoming parents has only made us stronger as a couple. We’ve loved every second of raising our sons and we have so much more room in our hearts for another child.
We chose adoption after discovering that we could not have biological children. Our decision to pursue adoption was one that was met with hope and excitement for the future because our ultimate wish was not to be pregnant, but to be parents. We were blessed with both of our sons, Rowan and Liam, through adoption. They are 17 months apart in age. We will never forget meeting them in the hospital the days they were born. It was love at first sight and an instant bond with both. We truly believe that we were meant to be their parents, and not a day goes by that we aren’t grateful for each of their birth moms and their decision to choose us to be their children's forever parents.
Being parents means everything to us. We both grew up in loving families with wonderful parents and siblings and we want to give that life to your child. We’ve always known that we wanted a big family. It’s been our dream since the day we met to wake up to our children and the happy chaos of a full house. The bond between siblings is so special and we know without a doubt that Rowan and Liam will be incredible big brothers to your child.
Our extended family is also extremely excited that we have chosen adoption once again to grow our family. Both of our sets of parents live nearby and are amazing grandparents. We each have a brother and both could not be more excited to welcome another child into our family through adoption. The main thing we want you to know about our family is the enormous amount of love, friendship, respect and support that binds us all together. Your child would be treasured as a part of our family.
Through pictures and letters, you will be able to see your child grow and thrive with us as parents and Rowan and Liam as his or her big brothers. Your child will know all about you as the birth mom and will understand that adoption was a choice you made out of love and that when you chose us as parents, you also gave us our dream of a family.
We thank you so much for considering us as part of your adoption plan and we hope to meet you soon.
