Julie & Matt

We’re a fun and adventurous family that will provide unconditional love and many opportunities to experience the world.

We are Julie and Matt, a married couple living in the Seattle area with our 2-and-a-half year old daughter Annie. We’ve been married for 9 years and have built a life full of love, laughter, and adventure that we’d like to share with you and your child.

We’ve always wanted a family with multiple children but complications with our daughter’s birth lead to infertility. We knew that adoption was the right way forward for us. We made this profile to give you insight into our life and who we are. Hopefully it will also show the love and affection that we share every day with each other and our daughter, as well as the unconditional love we have waiting for another child. It would be an honor and a dream come true to grow our family through adoption.

When we think about welcoming your baby into our family we can picture family dinners around our kitchen table every night, adventurous Saturdays playing at the park or hiking in the mountains around our house, and cozy, quiet Sundays at home, doing crafts, reading, and watching sports. We see a future where we nurture your child’s passions and help them grow into their own, unique self.

We know this is a difficult decision that requires a lot of thought. We hope this profile helps you to see the love and respect that we want to share with you and your child. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us!

Sincerely,
Julie and Matt

Who We Are

We are from the same small town and started dating in high school. We got married in 2010 and moved to the Seattle area in 2011. Through all of those life events, we are still just as in love as we were when we started dating 17 years ago. We've always wanted a family with multiple children. Our daughter Annie was born in 2017 but complications during her birth lead to infertility. We knew that adoption was the right way forward for us and we could not be more excited to share our love with your child.

Our Family: Our daughter Annie is two-and-a-half. She loves caring for her dolls and stuffed animals, feeding them and teaching them new things. She is great at sharing toys and practices taking care of her baby doll. Our dog Ketchup is a gentle and sweet 4-year-old Springer Spaniel. She loves to play outside with Annie and has been very patient as Annie learns to interact with animals. Macaroni and Cheese are our 6-year-old cats. They are affectionate, playful, and love to snuggle.

Our Interests: Our whole family loves to be outside! We hike, camp, run and bike. We also enjoy cooking, movies, and concerts. We love sports, including watching games at home, playing fantasy football, and going to see our favorite teams. Julie likes trail running, yoga, and baking. Matt enjoys mountain biking and reading. We can't wait to share these hobbies with another child and discover and nurture their passions.

A Day in the Life: Our house is full of laughter and smiles. We love to goof around and don't take ourselves too seriously. We cook and eat dinner together every night and read stories together before bedtime. We get outside everyday, playing in our yard or at parks, and are very close with our friends and family.

Our Traditions: We celebrate 4th of July with our neighbors, host a backyard BBQ every August, and go camping each Labor Day weekend. We make our own Halloween costumes each year and always host Thanksgiving for our friends. Each Christmas we cut down our tree as a family, and gather with our extended family to celebrate. Throughout the winter, we watch football on Sundays and Mondays, and in the summer, we have a picnic at the local farmers market every Thursday.

Adoption Diary

How Julie thinks of Matt

Matt is my best friend and my rock – his steadfast devotion and calm demeanor anchor our family. He’s the love of my life and I’m happy that we met so young as it’s allowed us to share so many adventures and experiences.
 
Matt is a smart, caring, and selfless person. He is always helping those around him and I admire that he regularly steps up to help our neighbors, friends, and family.

Matt is a wonderful father. He is endlessly patient, but also has a goofy side. I love catching glimpses of him dancing with Annie or letting her put pigtails in his hair. I also love how he fosters Annie’s independence by taking the time to show her and wait while she tries to do things herself (like putting on shoes or zipping a zipper). Matt worked part time during Annie’s first year so he could spend more time at home and I know he will continue to put family first for all of our children. He’s incredibly excited to parent another child.

How Matt thinks of Julie

Julie has been my source of strength and inspiration for over 16 years. She is dedicated, loyal, and a wonderful mother to our daughter Annie.

Julie isn’t afraid of new challenges, she steps up to the plate and inspires me to do the same. Whenever I need a push or a gentle guiding hand, Julie will be there to support me.

Julie is very driven to succeed in every aspect of her life. Once she sets her mind on a goal she will complete it. From running a personal-best marathon time, to renovating a kitchen, Julie will always go above and beyond to make things the best they can be.

Most importantly, Julie has embraced being a mother and every day works to spend time with our family and teach our daughter about the world. She is incredibly excited to welcome a new baby into our home. If our children grow up to be anything like Julie, the world will be a better place.
