Kendall & Matthew


We are Matthew and Kendall and have been together for seven years, we will be married for five years this coming October. We have a 9 year-old daughter named Addison who is SUPER excited to finally have the opportunity to become a big sister! Matthew is a Captain at a Fire Department with a work schedule that allows him to be home some during the week and weekends. Kendall is a Certified Professional Medical Coder that works with-in home, and has a very flexible work schedule. After three years of struggling with infertility God put it on our hearts that adoption would be our path. It's amazing how He works and provides once you entrust in His plan. We are a very active family that enjoys filling our free time with: family, board games, Legos, plenty of jumping on the trampoline, riding 4-wheelers, hiking, working out, cooking/baking, and competition dance, ballet, and jazz (ok maybe just Addi, but we enjoy watching her!) and we can't forget playing with our two fur-babies, Batman and Olive. Kendall has a very large extended family on both her mom's and dad's side with over 19 children under the age of 13! There is always a birthday party, or celebration going on where we gather together for fellowship and plenty of play time. We attend church regularly in worship, Sunday school, and youth activities for Addi. Our church has a very large adoptive community with plenty of support. Kendall's Mom and Step-Dad (formally known as Mimi and Pop-Michael) have a lake house with plenty of water toys that makes for an exciting day when we get to go. We also enjoy weekly Sunday dinners with Matthew's Mom, Dad, Grandma, Sister, Nephew, and soon to be Brother-in-law. We enjoy taking family vacations several times throughout the year.

We are excited to welcome to our home a boy or girl (or twins of any gender combination), newborn to 18 months, through open, semi-open or closed adoption.

 
 
 

DEAR EXPECTANT MOTHER


Dear Sweet Expectant Mama,

I have imagined writing you this letter for over a year and a half. I've often thought "what could I possibly say to a woman that could potentially trust us with her most perfect gift, what would be good enough"? Now as we sit down to finally write it, the only thing coming to me is what flows from my heart. No staged or researched idea will work. The thought of you opening our profile fills our souls with such excitement and gratitude for the work God is doing in all of our lives. We have not met, and do not know your name but I can assure you, you have been prayed for by us and many people in our lives for a long time. The decisions and plans you are making for your child will be the most important not only for them, but for you; and us too if chosen. I pray you are receiving all of the love, encouragement, and support you deserve right now. Have no doubt that you will receive so many prayers and love from us along the way. If you honor us with this gift, we will raise this child with love and respect for the sacrifice that you made for them, and for the miracle of adoption. They will know what a precious jewel they are, that God's love and grace knows no boundaries, and it is only through him that we were united. We thank you from the very deepest part of our heart for taking time to view a glimpse into our crazy, loving lives so we can show you what we have to offer your precious bundle.

With Grace,
Matthew, Kendall and Addi
