Matt & Amanda


We are Matt and Amanda! Before meeting in person, we wrote emails back and forth for months before finally setting up a date. We slowly fell in love and have now been married for 8 years. We both have a zeal for life and adventure and love discovering new places with each other. We're madly in love with each other and our sweet babies. Our faith and family are vitally important to us and play a large part in our story.

We have three beautiful blessings currently. Porter (6) enjoys protecting his sisters. He's never met a stranger and is affectionately referred to as Mr. Mayor. He loves to crack jokes, play soccer, swim, and ride bikes outside. Hollis (4) is very loyal and loves to help cook. She believes every day is a day to dance and loves to sing, tumble, swim, and play with her dolls. Truitt (2) is very compassionate and sensitive to other's feelings. She loves babies and bringing them toys or their blankies and loves to follow her siblings around and do what they do!

As a family, we love to be involved in the community and our church. Every week we volunteer in kids church, lead a small group, and sing in the church choir. We love serving as a family and being attentive to the needs within our neighborhood and community. We love watching college football and basketball and cheering on the kids in soccer. We also love to attend every festival and fair we can find! Matt's job as an engineer offers much flexibility and great stability and Amanda loves investing her time and heart into their kids. When time allows, she enjoys helping women through labor and delivery. She also uses her veterinary background to serve overseas on veterinary missions trips when the opportunity arises.

We love our next blessing already and can't wait for him or her to join our family! We promise to provide a safe home that is unconditionally loving, that encourages our children to dream big, and teaches them to love Jesus and those around them!

We welcome a boy or girl, newborn to three months old, through open, semi-open or closed adoption.

 
 
 

DEAR EXPECTANT MOTHER


Dear Sweet Friend,

We've done our best to give you a glimpse into our little family. It's our hope you feel the love, adventure, and joy that flows in our family.

We had always envisioned a big family and adoption being a part of it. We have friends who have grown their families through adoption and we are thrilled to finally be on this journey. It is such a beautiful expression of love and we are eager to share that unconditionally with our new baby.

We have prayed for you and for this baby and are mindful of the fact that this decision doesn't come lightly for you. Our prayers for you continue to be ones of encouragement, peace, and a feeling of deep love from us and our loving Father. We can't wait to meet our next blessing and are forever thankful to you for selflessly considering sharing him or her with us.

Much love,
Matt and Amanda
