Meet Matt & Kacy
Dear Birth Mother,
You don’t know us, but we have been praying for you. We know you have made difficult decisions and have made a brave choice to give the gift of life to the baby you are carrying. We are so thankful that you did. You have chosen to bless and trust another family with a miracle. We promise if you choose us, we will provide a safe, stable, loving home and support and love this child as we love God and each other.
We would like to tell you a little about ourselves. We have been married since 2012. We bonded instantly over our love for music and travel. We have a very strong marriage, truly enjoy each other’s company, and love to do fun things together. Our marriage has been the greatest blessing in our lives. We always knew we wanted to adopt. After we discovered we are unable to get pregnant on our own, we took this as God’s sign to grow our family through adoption only.
Matt works in Information Technology (IT), plays guitar and piano, runs half-marathons, and is a really fun person to be around. Our nephew thinks he is the coolest person on the planet. Kacy is an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (most people know this as Nurse Practitioner) and teaches nursing school. Kacy likes learning, reading, science, and health. She volunteers at diabetes and arts camps for children. We love animals, have two dogs of our own, and foster dogs that would otherwise be in the animal shelter. We help get them healthy, trained, and ready for adoption.
We have so much love to give. We are beyond ready to start a family. We are looking forward to being parents and everything that comes along with it. We know our lives will change; we know the change will be for the better. We are in a great place in our lives where we have a lot of flexibility and support. We are very close with our family. Both our mothers are retired and would love to spend lots of time with our child. We have nephews and a niece and most of our friends have children. Our child would have plenty of playmates. We would love to consider another adoption in the future. We both have siblings and cannot imagine life without them.
We believe diversity makes us better. We do not value one ethnicity over another. We plan to expose our child to cultural diversity and inclusive books, movies, and toys regardless. Should our child be of a certain cultural background, we will intentionally learn and support growth and knowledge of their heritage.
We support an open relationship with you now and/or later. We know humans and relationships are complex, but we will be here for you should you choose to have a relationship with us. We will be open with our child about adoption. We will always put adoption and the brave decision of birth mothers in a positive light. My friend tells her children “You grew in someone’s belly, but you were always growing in our hearts”. We think that is a simple and nice way to tell children that they were always wanted and loved.
Matt and Kacy
