About Us/Me

Hi we are Matt and Kim and this is our story. 

In 2005 Kim was diagnosed with non Hodgkins Lymphoma. After several rounds of chemo and radiation, she was deemed cancer free. When we got married in 2008, we immediately started trying to begin a family because we knew it may be a long shot. In 2010 we went through IVF and were fortunate enough to get pregnant. It was a miracle because we found out that we were having twins and they only retrieved one egg. The prayers we had said for so long, to just be able to have a baby had come true and the one egg split and gave us twins. This was truly a miracle as we figured this would be our only chance to have a baby and now we were having twins. Unfortunately, due to Kim's cancer treatments she went into early labor on December 16th 2010. The kids were healthy, however they were delivered at 17 weeks and with their lungs not developed, they passed away once she delivered them. That was and still is a very emotional thing for us to talk about. Every year that makes Christmas that much harder. We tried IVF one last time but it didn't work. After many years of healing from our losses we realized that there was still something missing in our lives, that was a child in our family. We both love sports, traveling and spending time with friends and family. We have seven nieces and nephews that we love vacationing with, watching them play sports, and letting them spend the night at our house. We love to spend time with our friends, all whom have children, and we play with them as if they were our nieces and nephews.

We both also volunteer to Coach for a basketball league.  Kim coaches our niece in 3rd grade and Matt coaches our nephew in 1st grade. We both enjoy spending extra quality time with them as well as helping other kids grow and develop.  Kim also serves on 2 different School Boards and a Hospital Foundation Board.  We would describe our lives as very active and involved.  We volunteer whenever we can, at school or sporting events,  church,  various organizations, or wherever help is needed.

We say all of this because we want you to know that like you, we know loss.  Our journey was not easy, and our love for our family and friends and the things that make us happy sustained us for a long time, but now all we want is to be a mom and dad.  We are each others first and only love, but feel certain that adoption is going to be our love story.

 

About You

It is difficult to put into words our gratitude and the love we have for you and your family. Just as we had a devastating loss, we can partially understand the pain you're going through right now. We understand that your decision to choose adoption is not an easy one. We can not be more grateful for you considering us. We have nothing but respect and admiration for your decision. Neither of our lives will ever be the same after this. Though we do not fully understand what you are going through, we do understand what it is like to lose a child. However, we want you to feel confident that we will do everything we possibly can to give your child the best of whatever they need And they understand that your decision was made out of love for them. Your decision for adoption is purely out of deep love for your child and we hope after reading this you feel confident we will love and support just as you would.
