Inquire About This Family

Dear Expectant Parent(s),

Hello! We are Matt and Abby.

We would like to begin by thanking you for taking some time to get to know us. When writing this letter, we have struggled with exactly what to say. What is the right thing to say to someone who is considering placing their child for adoption? There are no “perfect” words. Please know that we admire your strength as you lovingly consider all your options for your child’s life. Although we cannot fully comprehend what you are experiencing right ow, we would like to offer our love, encouragement, and support for whatever decision brings you peace.

Our story begins in 2010 when we met through mutual friends. After about a year of friendship, we started dating in February of 2011. We have been inseparable ever since. Our relationship quickly blossomed. We were married in May of 2013.

Our relationship continues to grow each day; we truly value our time together, make each other laugh, and push each other to be the best versions of ourselves. Matt works as a pastor; an Abby is a high school science teacher. Although our content areas are quite different, we share a passion for helping people and contributing to the growth of our community.

Together, we love to go camping and spend lots of time outdoors, doing things like kayaking, hiking, and walking our 2 dogs, Monty and CoJack. Matt is a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, so we try to get out to a game or two each season. We love hosting gatherings of friends and family, and have a wonderful group of supportive people in our lives. We live in an area close to Lake Huron, so we spend a lot of time enjoying the Great Lakes as well!

We are looking to share our life, our home, and most importantly, our love with a child. You’re looking for a bright future for your baby. Maybe we’re looking for each other?

We will love your child unconditionally, and provide for all your child’s needs. Your child will be raised in a Christian home, where we practice Christian love in all that we do. Your child’s heritage will be celebrated. We would love for your child to know his or her birth parents, and, if you share that desire, we welcome opportunities to build a relationship with you.

Thank you so much for reading our letter, and we hope this profile can give you a glimpse into our life. We would love to get to know you better, now that you’ve read a little bit about us. We look forward to building an open line of communication with you, growing as a family, and together, creating the best possible life for your child, if you decide to place your child with us. We hope we get to meet you!

With love,

Matt and Abby
