We warmly invite you to explore our profile.

To that special woman out there -

THANK YOU for coming here! Knowing that someone is reading this makes us hopeful that somewhere, somehow our dream to grow our family is possible.

We are so profoundly grateful for the gift of adoption and the deepest love it represents. We could not be a family without adoption!

As adoptive parents we know how important it is to create a stable, respectful and loving environment for our children to be free to grow into their true self. It would be incredible for our children to have someone to grow up with, bond with, giggle, explore and understand each other in a way that only siblings can.

Our children will always know that it is the love of their mother that brought them to us and they will always know our love is real and unconditional.

With so much hope and admiration,
Katy, Matt and Evelyn

Who We Are

We are a family of three and hope to be four! Matt and Katy have been together for nearly 20 years! And Evelyn joined the family almost 5 years ago, through adoption.

What an adventure that was! We are very open about Evelyn having come from Melissa’s tummy and we are seeing how important that being proud and open about adoption is for our child and ourselves. This is not a secret, this is a profound act of love. It is our job to honor that love daily.

We know that adoptive families go by a different playbook. We have educated ourselves and surrounded ourselves with some of the best resources out there so that we can ensure our children have what they need to feel strong, safe and grow into the best versions of themselves they can.

Because building a family came late to us, we were able to save up and get further into our careers than we might have otherwise.

This felt like a curse at the time, but now we realize it was part of preparing for our special path to parenthood.

We have a community and resources that we built up over time while we waited and waited…we realized it was our job to be prepared when called upon. And we are prepared!

Adoption Diary

Fancy Event

I went to a very fancy work event. I loved it, but I loved my shoes more. This was the only photo I managed to get. I’m too shy at these fancy things with fancy people. There was a time in my life when this would have been a huge deal, but these days I prefer to be home with my family.

Bowling and Birthday!

We celebrated 5 years of life with Evelyn….EVERY DAY THIS WEEK!      I know they say that adoptees are funny around birthdays but so far this one seems pretty keen on bowling, spaghetti, cake, presents, friends and general joie de vivre. She has milked it!

We had a sad July with a missed connection, but we folded inward and found so much gratitude for our healthy, happy child who, of course, wanted to invite her birth parents to her party. At this time we are not in touch with them but the door is always open and I have faith that in time they will walk through.

There are so many things about adoption, grief, joy, togetherness, isolation, fear and confidence.

Our daughter’s 5th birthday means more than most 5 year olds’ do….and that’s just a fact. I don’t mean to diminish any other 5 year old, but for our child to have survived so much and for her birth mother to have endured and for her to be so healthy and strong is such a gift. No day is taken for granted - especially not her 5th birthday -  and I’m encouraged that even at a young age, she seems to understand this. She and her birth mother are so strong and we are so honored to be a part of this.

I don’t know if we could get lucky twice, and some days I’m doubtful, but today my heart is full with love and admiration for our daughter and for her birth mother and I know anything is possible.

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

We truly appreciate your kindness and strength and look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

**Matt, Katy & Evelyn**
