Matt & Jaime
We are so excited to introduce ourselves to you! We have dreamed of becoming parents for as long as we can remember and are overjoyed to begin our family through adoption. Our family and home is full of love, kindness, laughter, and adventure - we cannot wait to share this with a child. Know that we are praying for you in this journey and truly admire your incredible strength.
Our Leisure Time
We are always trying to find new things to explore! On weekends we might hike a new mountain or nature trail, take a class together, or day trip to a new town. At home we love to play cards and board games, walk around our neighborhood, go to the pool, or play with our dogs. Weekends are our cherished time to relax and reconnect as a family. We love to get breakfast on Sunday morning and then head to the park to walk. In the future, we are excited to take a child to the playground or nature trails at our favorite park! There are creeks and fields to explore and an amazing playground with a treehouse, a slide built into the hill, musical instruments, and playhouses!
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Jaime About Matt: I love that Matt is hardworking, supportive, and fun! Matt can always bring a smile to someone's face and brighten their day - he is so funny! We laugh a lot in our home and support each other with mutual kindness and respect. I am so excited to see Matt as a father, because he is the whole package of what a dad should be: fun, kind, loving, supportive, and a great teacher!
Matt About Jaime: Jaime is nurturing, thoughtful, and funny! Jaime keeps me laughing every day, brings a smile to the face of everyone she encounters and is always thinking about others. I cannot wait to see Jaime as a mother. I have had the benefit of seeing Jaime as a nanny, getting a firsthand glimpse into her future as a mother. She is thoughtful, supportive, engaging, fun, and any child will be so fortunate to have her as a mother!
Why We Chose Adoption
Adoption has always been a dream of ours, and has been a consistent discussion over the five years we have been together. After we were married, we talked about how and when adoption would become a part of our family's story. We knew early this year that we felt a pull to begin on this journey. We are surrounded by many people with adoption as part of their family's story, and we are part of a family that will lovingly embrace adoption, this child, and the birth family.
We are excited to build a strong, positive, family unit for a child. Adoption will be an open topic of discussion in our family always. We know that adoption can bring up many feelings, both positively and sometimes more difficult, for a child and we will always give them support, endless love, and validation of the feelings they have. We know that open adoption allows a child answers and strengthens their confidence in their story. We will always strive to be the best parents possible through love, support, kindness, and understanding. We also are fortunate to have a community around us full of families who have adopted. Many friends, colleagues, and even family are going through a similar journey. This child will know love and support from a large family and will feel connected to others in our community and our lives.
Our House and Neighborhood
Our home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a large backyard! We live in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood that is full of families and kids. The neighborhood is super fun and hosts activities each year such as family BBQ’s, back to school pool parties, and even a holiday parade! We strive to create a warm, inviting environment for our family to relax and spend time together in our home.
Our community that we live in is hugely supportive of families. There is always something to do around our area on any given day. There are abundant parks and playgrounds, as well as nature trails and education centers, kids gyms, and swimming pools. On weekends, families regularly meet up at the parks and children play together on the playgrounds and nature areas.
Our town also hosts many activities for families to choose from including festivals, parades, fun runs, shows, even a food truck event!
We are close to the children's museum, zoo, aquarium, various apple orchards, libraries, and the baseball stadium.
We look forward to hiking, biking, swim lessons, kids' gym classes, library events and more with a child!
Our Extended Families
Our family, most of all, values time together. We love to cook delicious food, play games, watch sports, or simply enjoy evenings together on the back patio. Family traditions, especially around the holidays, are important to us. We gather our entire family together, cook holiday meals, exchange gifts, play games, and enjoy the coziness of our family, home, and the season. In the summers, we go on family trips to the beach, one of our favorite places, and enjoy some relaxing family time there! We bike, swim, get ice cream, mini golf, and lay in the sand. We cannot wait for a child to be a part of our family gatherings and vacations - we are excited to show them new things and watch them experience all of the wonderful traditions that we value!
Our family is incredibly warm, open, and welcoming. Friends and acquaintances are greeted with loving, open arms and immediately welcomed as family. There is always a new adventure - hiking, camping, biking, day trips, exploring, creating, and always learning and growing! In our family, there is abundant laughter, love, and kindness - we are blessed with incredibly wonderful people in our lives.
From Us to You
We are incredibly honored and thankful that you have taken the time to consider us and allowed us to share more about ourselves. We know that you are facing many difficult decisions and we admire your strength and selflessness. We promise to provide a truly loving, safe, nurturing, and supportive home for your child.
We have been a part of each other's lives for a very long time and are beyond excited for our roles as parents together. As children, we grew up in the same neighborhood, went to the same church, and attended the same elementary school. Our relationship blossomed in 2015 when both of our best friends got married and we were best man and maid of honor at the wedding - it seemed written in the stars that we would be reunited, and the spark was instantaneous. We had to make it through the challenge of long-distance at the start of our relationship, and through this challenge, we unlocked what we think is the key to our marriage - communication. All we had was FaceTime and phone calls, and we learned about each other at the deepest levels. One thing that came from those conversations was a shared love for children, and our heartfelt desire to be parents.
Even before we were married, we knew that adoption would be a part of how our family would grow. In early 2020 we began discussing growing our family, and felt the pull to begin the adoption process. We are overjoyed to be walking this path to begin our family. We want you to know that you and your baby are loved dearly. Our family is a supportive, open, and loving place with Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Grandparents that cannot wait to be encouraging role models in a child's life. Our family gatherings are so wholesome and good for our souls. We know that a child will be blessed with a safe, warm, loving environment in which to learn and grow.
As a family, we enjoy finding ways to spend time together. We love going on hikes, playing board games, going to the park, and having family dinner together. We are passionate about learning and plan to travel to give our children the chance to see the world. We hope our children will be happy, curious, and always learning through new adventures, compassion for others, and trying new things. With Jaime's career as a Disney Travel Agent, one of our most favorite family activities is our trips to Disney World. Our love for Disney has grown over the years, and it's something we cannot wait to share with a child!
We realize that you have a difficult decision ahead of you. Please know that we want to walk this journey with you in support, and continue to build a wonderful relationship through pictures, emails, phone calls, and visits. This child will always know how much you truly love them and how difficult this decision was for you to make. Your brave decision will always be significant to us and we will honor you and speak highly of you always in our home.
We hope that learning more about us gives you peace of mind as you consider adoption for your child. If you would like to meet us and learn more about us, we wholeheartedly welcome the opportunity. We are a family that values time together and family bonds. We look forward to the blessing of a child in our home, and the opportunity to be the best parents we can possibly be.
Thank you again for allowing us to share our heart with you.
Matt & Jaime
