David and Matt: Warm and Caring Educators in Palo Alto, CA

Dear Expectant Mother,

Hello! We are Matt and David from Palo Alto, California, south of San Francisco in the Bay Area. Thank you so much for allowing us to share some of our story with you. We have been together for almost ten years, and have always wanted to become parents. We are ready to provide a child with all the love, support, and opportunities he or she needs to thrive in life. We can promise you that your child will be deeply loved and cared for.

A Few Things About Us:

• We are both educators: David a college professor & Matt a middle school administrator.
• We are very close with our families.
• We have a wonderful group of friends, many of whom are new parents as well.
• We are avid readers & are excited to read with our child.
• We love being outdoors—hiking, running, & swimming together.

Thank You!

Who We Are

We met in New York City in 2010 and hit it off on our first date. We connected over our shared love of reading, running, and our passion for education. We knew we had found something special right away. In 2014, we got married in front of our amazing family and friends. We are now Californians, living in the Bay Area.

We are fortunate that our jobs as educators are flexible, so we can devote a lot of time to our child. Matt currently works part-time and David has flexibility with his work hours. We both have summers off. We love to travel, and we visit both our families back East several time a year. We enjoy visiting the beach to relax and swim—we look forward to sharing all these adventures with our child.

We are so excited to have a child. David is a wonderful cook, and is looking forward to cooking for a little one. Matt is especially eager to explore books with our child. Matt grew up Episcopalian, David grew up Catholic, and we plan to raise our child in a warm faith community. Our parents and siblings are so excited to be grandparents, aunts, and uncles to our child, and they will be a big part of our child’s life.

Adoption Diary

Check out our instagram @davidmattadopt

We made an instagram! We know that photos can really help people get to know each other, so we thought it would be nice to create an Instagram to give expectant moms and their loved ones another way to get to know a bit about us. https://www.instagram.com/davidmattadopt/

Back to School - by Matt

Where we live, the first week of school is wrapping up today. I really love this time of year. There are new school supplies, fresh starts, and there is such a feeling of possibility. I am so excited to build back to school traditions for a family with students and teachers. I imagine back to school shopping, setting goals for the new school year, and taking the time to build strong relationships with our child’s teachers and other families in their class. I am also excited to think about how our newly expanded family might like to be included in some of these traditions! There are so many possibilities, but no matter what, I am excited to focus on kindness, learning, and possibility with our child at back to school time and throughout the year.
