Who We Are
We met in Long Island in 2011. We had both just moved (Erin from NYC and Matt from Toronto). We hit it off instantly and have been together ever since.
Erin has a sister and a brother who live in Long Island and a sister who lives in Washington, DC. Her parents live in North Carolina. Matt has a brother who lives in Toronto and his parents also live in Toronto. We are very close with our families and spend a lot of time with them. We have 6 nieces and nephews and love spending weekends and vacations with them. We also have a very large extended family.
We have chosen adoption because we love being Olivia's parents more than anything in the world. She brings such joy to our lives and we think that we have a lot to offer as parents. We also would love for Olivia to grow up with a sibling because we know how special our bonds with our siblings are. Erin was diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer in 2016 at the age of 31. Thankfully due to life saving treatments, Erin is cancer free, healthy and thriving. We chose to use a surrogate to have Olivia and we are now choosing adoption in hopes of growing our family.
We spent the weekend in Montauk and had a great time! Montauk is one of our favorite places. It’s where we got engaged and holds so many great memories for us. We love making new memories every time we go back!
Olivia went to her first day of Pre-K 3 today! She was so excited to meet her teacher and all of her classmates. She is growing and learning so much these days!
