Matt & Jordan

We cannot describe the excitement we feel at the idea of welcoming a child to our family. We will provide them with love, support and encouragement to become whoever they are meant to be, all while celebrating where they come from. The decision you are making is as selfless and full of love as they come. We hope that in this journey, you have been met with love and support. Thank you for considering us.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Enjoying the Sunset on the Front Porch

Matt About Jordan: Jordan is able to give so much of herself so completely and so easily. I love how much she loves. I respect how she simply does what she feels needs to be done to ensure the people around her are loved and cared for—whether its family, friends, or people in our community. It is rare that a person will work so hard to make the world better, and Jordan does that time after time. She does things for the right reasons and the results are amazing.

Jordan About Matt: Overall, the best word to describe Matt is constant. He is constant in showing his love and support for me, our family and friends. He is also constant in his faith and involvement with our church. He is constant in his love of learning and using that knowledge to improve our lives and the lives of those around us. He always puts the well-being of others before himself. I am married to my best friend and constant source of joy in my life. I know he will continue this in his role as a father.

Our Leisure Time

Matt Tuning His Guitar

A lot of our leisure time is spent at home cooking out on our back patio, watching a movie or spending time with friends and family. No matter how hectic life can get, we always find comfort in just being together, cooking a meal, and talking through our day. In our down time, you will find Jordan painting, reading or working on an art project. Matt loves to read and play golf.

Jordan Painting the Local Library's Windows for Winter

We are both involved in our community. Jordan raises funds to support the local library through used book sales and other events. She also volunteers at a local summer camp for at-risk youth. She loves working with the children and seeing their excitement each day. Matt has served on a number of boards and advised the local Mock Trial team. We are also active members of our church and enjoy the fellowship it provides.

We love taking weekend road trips--anywhere with great entertainment, food and sports events (especially hockey!). We love exploring, and especially enjoy visiting Farmer's Markets and finding new ingredients to try, taking cooking classes, and attending festivals.

We also take a few longer trips a year. Our favorite destination is the Caribbean. Our last big trip was a cruise through Alaska and Canada. Our dream vacation is a tour through Asia. Each year, we take a family beach trip as well as a Labor Day beach trip with friends and their children.

Most importantly, we love being together and making memories.

Cultural Diversity

Should we be presented with the opportunity to adopt a child with a cultural background different from our own, we intend to provide a home that consistently incorporates their heritage in our daily lives. As parents, we will educate ourselves to ensure we fully encompass all it means to be a culturally diverse family and create a safe environment where a child feels comfortable asking questions and exploring their background. We will also strive to seek out opportunities for them to interact socially with others of similar heritage. We will plan trips and educational opportunities outside of our town to provide an even broader understanding of who they are.

We believe a child should learn to embrace the fact that this world is a diverse place full of interesting cultures and something that should be explored and appreciated. We want them to grow up understanding their culture and knowing that we embrace it as well. Whether or not our child is a different race/ethnicity we will instill the importance of being open and accepting of all cultures and to embrace those attributes that make us different and unique.

We do know other local families who have biological and adopted children of ethnicities different from their own and will be able to utilize their experiences and advice to better provide for our child. While our community is small, it is accepting and provides a safe place for others to celebrate who they are and where the come from.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We built our home on five acres in the country and have been here since 2018. We have a large front and back yard with lots of room for a child to play. Our home has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a large family room/kitchen where we spend most of our time. When we were planning this home, we knew we wanted to grow a family here, and we built it with that in mind. Our favorite part of our home is the wrap around porch. When Jordan was little, she loved sitting on the front porch with her grandmother. Just that small moment made a lasting memory. We hope the home we built will have the same impact on a child. Our neighbors are wonderful and it is common to see families outside grilling, playing or just walking their dogs.

We live a few minutes outside our city. Jordan was born here and Matt's family moved here when he was young. While our city is full of tradition and charm, it is continually growing. We love the idea that the same park we played in as kids will be the same park our kids play in—with a few new additions! We have annual events like our Christmas parade, downtown Trick or Treat, community BBQs and the county fair. We also live within a few hours of three major cities which allow access to shopping, sporting events, museums, and entertainment. It is the best of both worlds!

Our Extended Families

We Are Aunt JoJo & Uncle Matt to Our Friend's Daughter

We live in the same community as our parents and love the support that provides as well as the benefits it will have for a child. From vacations to dinners to holiday celebrations, our family provides a richness that only true love and unconditional support can bring.

Our Family

Holidays are big with our family. We decorate together and prepare special meals to celebrate. Jordan's mom always cooks a big breakfast on Christmas morning and we spend the day opening presents, eating and watching holiday movies. We love to grill out during the summer and Matt is our go to chef for those meals. He loves to try new barbecue recipes and our family loves to try his creations! Matt's mom bakes and decorates cakes, so she always provides dessert when we get together.

We have been blessed with selfless parents who supported us throughout our entire lives and remain an active part of our life. We talk at least daily and see each other several times a week. We know they be will an active part of a grandchild's life. Matt is an only child and Jordan has an older brother who lives in another state with his family. He and his wife have three children. Our family is as excited as we are to welcome a child and will love and support them whole heartedly from the first minute. Without question, our family has made us who we are and will help us make a child's life wonderful.

From Us to You

Words cannot adequately express the profound honor we feel knowing that you are taking the time to read our profile and get to know us a little better. Even more, we would like to express our hope that in this adoption journey you are on, you have been loved and supported by those around you. We hope to become a part of that support system and honor the hard decision you are currently contemplating.

We met in high school and were friends through our teen years, college, and into our early twenties. In 2005, Matt returned to our hometown to begin his law practice and Jordan returned to study for and receive her MBA at a nearby university. We eventually started dating in 2007­-although are parents assure us we were dating long before that! After Jordan finished graduate school, she moved several hours away to start her career and we continued in a long distance relationship. In 2009 we were married and decided to settle back in our hometown. Even before we were engaged we knew that we wanted a family and that at least a part of that family would come through adoption. We chose to build a home where we grew up because we knew firsthand the type of childhood and love it would provide as a community. Our parents also live close by and just as our grandparents were a large part of our lives, we knew we wanted our children to have the same experience with our parents.

After we were married, we realized that our careers were both time consuming and as we work towards building our family we have been blessed that Jordan is able to stay at home so we have more time for each other, our family and future children. The decisions we have made during our marriage, where to live, how to manage our careers, even the house we built, were made with our dream of having a family and providing the best for a child in terms of attention, support, and opportunities.

Your child will be the center of our world and the first thought in all that we do. We want them not only to have a life that is full of unconditional love and support, but we also want to supply them with the confidence and tools needed to pursue their dreams-whatever they may be. We look forward to the simple joys of attending church together, blowing out birthday candles, reading bedtime stories, and just sitting on the porch making funny faces. We also will ensure they have every advantage we can give them and know that we will always be there for them no matter where their life takes them.

We are excited to share letters, photographs, and mementos with you as your child grows up. We understand the comfort and assurance an open adoption can provide for everyone involved, and we are committed to pursuing that relationship with you.

We want you to know that we truly appreciate this opportunity and that your child will know that the decision you made to entrust them with us is the greatest honor of our lives. They will know that your decision was made out of love, and that their life is full of people that love them, wanted the very best for them, and made hard decisions with their best interests at heart.

We would love to have the opportunity to get to know you better, and we pray the Lord will bless you in your journey and in the future!
