To Someone Special,

"Life is a collection of moments. Some good, some sad, and some unforgettable." --Bhawana

We are both excited and nervous to be on this journey. This is new to us, as it may or may not be new to you. We always try to make our house a haven of safety and peace. We like to have our dinner at the table with each other. We like to spend a lot of time with our familes and with each other. There are many kids in the community, and there will be many opportunities for cuts and bruises and scraped knees at the parks, but also times for tears of joy and happiness as the kids grow and make friends who will love and support them.

We believe the adoption journey is full of hope for all those involved. You have hope that your child will be raised in a good home with lots of fulfilling opportunities. We have hope that we can become parents and raise a family. Your child will grow up having hope that he/she will be blessed with a full and loving life and the chance to understand where they came from.

We look forward to the day that we can have children in our home. We want to raise them to be good people of society that are hard-working and service-oriented. We plan to take them on trips and enjoy the simple adventures of everyday life. We want them to learn to rely on God and know that He loves them and wants to be a part of their lives. We believe in giving them a good education, even from the youngest age. We want our children to grow up to be independent and self-sufficient. But more importantly, they will grow up knowing they are loved and cared for and we will be there to support them in whomever they become. We would like to have an open adoption where our child will always know where they came from. We know it is a relationship that will evolve over time just like any other relationship, but we hope that the birth parents and the birth family can remain a part of our lives.

We have talked about having children since before we were married, but have been unable to get pregnant. Even before going through all the infertility treatments, we talked about how adoption might be in our future. We both felt like adoption was the journey we would eventually take. We know that it can be a beautiful miracle that blesses more lives than our own.

We have prepared ourselves in a way that we can give unconditional love to a child and also the stability of a caring and loving home. We feel we are financially prepared to take on this important role as parents, and give a child a fulfilling life.

We understand this is likely the biggest decision you have had to make because this will not only affect your child’s life but also your future as well. We want you to know that even if you feel we are not the right fit for your child, we wish you the best and hope that you can find the best family to raise your child. We are praying for you!

Sincerely,
Matt & Chelsey

Who We Are

We are Matt and Chelsey. We like to smile and have fun, but we also realize life is hard. It's important to us to be real with people, and share our life with those who deserve that trust.
As we learn from life experiences, some things are left to faith and the hope that everything will work out. Success affects us on an individual level, but we should use that success to live a life of significance.
Our family and friends are an important part of us, and who we are. We love spending as much time with our families as we can. We want our children to feel the same way we do about our immediate families. We both have great childhood memories and we look forward to the day we can help our children create their own.
We like to care for others. It's an important part of our lives to love those around us and help people feel like there is a purpose in life. We are active in our church and our jobs and community and we enjoy taking every opportunity to serve others.
We met each other in high school while working at a local diner. We went to almost every high school dance together. It was an inside joke that Matt proposed to me every chance he got. We were even the couple chosen to get married on a Valentines Day special activity at the school. We were nearly inseparable during high school. I would go to his soccer games, and he would come to my swim meets. Everyone teased us for not dating other people, but we knew we were meant for each other and I did not want to spend my time with any other boy. We dated for a couple of years before Matt went on a church mission to Brazil. We wrote letters back and forth and then we met back up after Matt returned home and dated for another year before finally getting married. When Matt officially proposed to me, I actually had to clarify that he was asking me for real, because he had fake proposed so many times before.
After being married for a year we moved to Hawaii where we were blessed to finish both our degrees. We enjoyed the island life for four years and it was hard to move back but we wanted to be closer to our families.
When we are not doing home improvement projects or taking a trip somewhere, we are probably lounging back at home either watching movies or just talking about our days and our hopes for the future. We often stay up much later than our bedtime just talking to each other. We both feel it is best to be open about our feelings. Sometimes we go out on Friday nights but we also like to stay in and have Friday movie nights with Pizza and ice cream. Right now, we are watching the Flash TV series as well as The Good Doctor. Matt watches Smallville or Superman and Lois and Chelsey watches This is Us or New Amsterdam.
We have tried for several years to have children but have not been able to. As we prayed about which path we should take we felt like we were to grow our family through adoption. We did not take this decision lightly and have done a lot of education and read a lot of books about adoption. We are just hoping that we can connect with our child’s birthmom soon!

Adoption Diary

Favorite Brazilian Treat

On Sunday we talked about the important ingredients to life and then made a favorite treat Matt learned how to make when he lived in Brazil for a couple of years. It’s made with table cream, frozen juice concentrate, and sweetened condensed milk. Talk about a sugar high but so delicious!!!
