Your courage is not left unnoticed and we support any
decision you make, as you are doing what is best for your child. Having three
siblings who were adopted, Matt knows firsthand how important trust is on both
sides. He has had some amazing opportunities and experiences growing up with
foster and adopted siblings.
His two younger adopted brothers are still in contact with
their birth mother. The relationship they have been able to keep with her has
proven to be a positive influence on them. Matt has always appreciated the
experiences that he had in life because of this, and it really drove home how
important a role adoption has played in his life and how important it is for
our family’s future.
We believe that an open adoption will provide a level of
comfort and understanding to your child. We would be happy to discuss types of
communication, visits and more to find a solution that works for all and
provides a healthy and nurturing experience.
Kevin has always wanted the opportunity to pass something
down to a son. After Kevin took Matthew’s last name, he really wanted to pass a
family name from his side down to a son. He also would love to give our
photographer sister/in-law some great photo-shoot material with matching
Matthew is a Community Manager of an apartment complex and

Our spacious, three-bedroom apartment is full of love to
give to your baby. Between us and our three dogs, we are very excited to share
all of the love, joy and fun we have with your baby if our family matches what
you are looking for in a family. We live in a quiet area of the city surrounded
by parks, museums, restaurants, shopping and beaches. We love to go for walks
to the lake and take the dogs to the park.
The majority of our family is in Kansas and Missouri. Our
parents and siblings are ready to hop on a plane, train or in a car to make a
trip and spend weeks with us to get to know your baby. Your child will feel
love and support from great-grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and
hopefully cousins in the future (Matthew’s brother and his wife just finalized their adoption of twins!). We make many trips a year to see them and they
come to stay with us throughout the year as well.
Our promise to you is that your child will be always be
cared for, protected and loved more than words can describe and always be
appreciative of the decisions that you made to give them that chance. We are
also extremely thankful for what you are considering for us and the opportunity
you are giving us to start our family.
Matt and Kevin
