We want thank you for considering us. Please feel free to reach out with any questions at all! As an adoptive family, we understand the complexities that come with having placed faith, hope and trust in total strangers.
We are profoundly grateful to have built our family through the gift of adoption in 2014. Our daughter has sprinkled our lives with color, energy and excitement in ways we could never have imagined.
We are now hoping to grow our family again in 2019.
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!
Good Morning. Just a blog entry to say that we are heading out to our wonderful adoption agency to update our home study.
These days make me reflect on the times our birth families went to visit our social workers and how we all worked together to make sure EVERYONE was safe and supported and doing what was best for the adoption constellation.
I am so grateful for our agency because it is not just an adoption agency, it is a family service non-profit that offers support for us and for our birth families and our children for LIFE! We go to classes, we get counseling and we meet with other adoptive families. They did not just connect us with a birth parent and then disappear. They have been there for over 100 years and I hope for 100 more!
The road to adoption is a rocky one, but we’re still here. Last year we had a little visitor stay with us for 10 beautiful days. Her mother ultimately decided to parent and it turns out that those were 10 days she needed to figure out what to do. We were sad to let baby girl go, but happy that she was going to a safe place where she will be loved and supported. All we can do is be ready when we are called upon and honor the gift of family we are given. Much love to birth mothers everywhere. Especially to our Melissa. Now we’re back and ready to open our hearts and minds again.
