A Letter from Matt & Heather
We are honored to be considered as adoptive parents for your child. We are an active, fun-loving Christian family with a deep desire to add to our family through the gift of adoption. We love to travel, play outdoors and have cozy movie nights. Where we live we can easily go play in the mountains, at the ocean or in the big city. We value faith, family, quality education, a strong work ethic, healthy living and of course having lots of fun. We are excited to welcome your child into our family and to have an open relationship with you, if you are comfortable.
We were set up on a blind date through mutual friends. Our sense of humor and quick wit were a perfect match! We have been happily married for 10 years and can honestly say we fall more in love each year. We are great communicators who truly understand each other. Our marriage is built on our faith and we have a strong, secure relationship. We enjoy traveling and going on new adventures together as well as having a date night in our small town and going to Seahawks football games. Playing with our daughter and being together is our priority and time we treasure. After experiencing infertility we are overjoyed with the hope of completing our family through the gift of adoption. We are ready for cozy bedtime snuggles, family game & movie nights and outings to the Zoo and Aquarium.
Matt is a charismatic, outgoing leader and so much fun to be around. He is also sensitive, gentle and personable. Being intentional is important to him in his faith, relationships, health and fitness, and his business. He loves being outdoors, golfing, hunting, BBQing, throwing or kicking the ball around with our daughter and being the best bedtime storyteller. Growing up on a cattle ranch, Matt had to learn what it means to work hard and that is so evident in all he does. He is so looking forward to teaching your child how to throw a ball, golf, wrestle, catch fresh crab and read books at bedtime!
Heather is the most thoughtful and generous person I know. She is compassionate and nurturing and wants the best for those around her. She is a natural, patient teacher whom children are drawn to. Heather loves to be active and plan fun adventures for our family. She loves being in community, sharing meals, exercise, travel, photography, and interior decorating. Her love for Jesus and teaching shines through while leading Bible studies, serving at church and in our daughter’s classroom. Heather truly is the best mom and is excited to have a new baby to nurture and love.
Kennedy is full of joy and a natural leader. She thrives when helping others. She loves playing school, playing with her dolls, doing art and building Legos. She has a huge heart, keeps us laughing, loves God and is over the moon excited to become a big sister!
We are so grateful to have a close extended family. We truly share our lives with each other. Matt’s parents and 3 brothers live nearby, we get to see them almost weekly. Heather’s parents and sisters’ family live a few hours away and we get together almost monthly. Our family is truly so excited to welcome your child and share treasured holiday traditions and birthday celebrations together.
We live in a 2 story, 4 bedroom home in a close-knit and safe community. We have lots of room to entertain, play tag and have nerf gun wars. We have a view of the lake and in the summer we watch hot air balloons take flight from our window. Our backyard is private with an outdoor living space, grass to play in and a large play structure.
We are a short walking distance to several parks and downtown. Often we walk to our farmers market and one of the many restaurants or bakeries on Main Street, while of course stopping to play at one of the parks along the way. Our town holds parades, a Christmas tree lighting, and activities on a regular basis.
Your child will grow up knowing they were created for a purpose, that their life is a true gift and they are deeply loved by God, by us and by you. We promise to help your child develop their authentic self and develop a great sense of self-worth. We will help him/her thrive and reach goals with love, grace, and encouragement. We will provide financial stability, unconditional love, a quality education, and wonderful opportunities. Your child’s adoption story will always be treasured, their life and their relationship with you will be covered in prayer.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
Traveling and going on new adventures together are things we both love, yet we also enjoy having a date night in our small town or going to Seahawks football games. Playing with our daughter and being together as a family is our priority and time we treasure. Being healthy as a family by staying active and cooking healthy meals is a big part of our lifestyle. We love being a part of our community, active in our church and being intentional with the village of family and friends we have been blessed with.
Our faith is the strong foundation which we build our life on and we trust Jesus in all areas of our life. Our church feels like our home away from home, we attend weekly and Kennedy goes to Awana each week. It is important to us that our children know they are created and loved by God. Our church family and friends feel honored to be praying for you and your baby.
|Our Musical Interest|
We usually have music playing whether it's for a family dance party, learning songs for Kennedy or just for nice background noise. We listen to Christian, alternative, country and almost anything. We love listening to music and attending live concerts.
|About Our Home in Washington|
Our home is beautiful. It has 2 stories, 4 bedrooms (a cozy, warm nursery and a playroom). We have lots of room to entertain, play tag and have nerf gun wars. We love our view of the lake and in the summer we get to watch hot air balloons take flight from our window. Our backyard is private with an outdoor living space, grass to play in and a large play structure.
Kennedy is so full of joy. She truly loves other children, especially ones younger than her. She loves to be a helper and is a natural leader. Learning has always been fun for her, she has loved taking Spanish, French, art and music classes. Being outside as a family, kicking the soccer ball around, swimming or going for family bike rides are activities she looks forward to and she especially loves our Friday family movie nights. Kennedy has been praying for a sibling and life long friend and we know she will absolutely make a wonderful big sister.
|We live in the state of...|
Our neighborhood is safe, close-knit and friendly. There are several parks, an aquatic center, a library and bike trails all within walking distance. We live across from a lake where we can kayak, fish or feed the ducks, and sometimes watch hot air balloons dip their baskets in. Farm fields are a short drive away where we pick apples, pumpkins, berries and even cut down our Christmas trees. We often walk downtown to shop, eat, watch the skydivers land or attend the many community activities that are offered. Our neighborhood and community is perfectly fit between two mountain ranges, the ocean and the big city, it's truly the best.
