Domestic Adoption


How brave you must be. You have a very difficult decision in front of you. While we do not pretend to understand how you feel or what you are going through, we wanted to tell you a little bit about us in hopes that you will allow us to go on this journey with you and walk beside you.

Our names are Emily and Matt. We have known each other for about thirteen years and have been married almost six. Emily is a Kindergarten teacher and Matt works in home security. When we are not working, we love to attend social events with friends, sporting events, travel to new places and spend time sitting on our back porch. We also like to nurture our independent interests. Matt loves sports of all kinds, golfing and watching movies. Emily loves to do yoga, try her hand at gardening, baking and try different types of art every chance she gets. However, every day, we make time to spend together and just enjoy raising his daughter and our three dogs together.

Riley is Matt’s biological daughter and she is almost 16 years old. She goes to our local high school and has a deep love for music and reading. She loves her half siblings and is the absolute favorite of her younger cousins.

Three years ago, we were able to conceive a baby together through IVF. Unfortunately, our daughter, Mirielle’s heart stopped beating when she was just weeks away from her due date. While we will also always be grateful for Riley, we still have a strong desire to raise a baby together. We will never take for granted the gift of a baby with a beating heart.

Family is the most important thing to both of us. Our families are our support, our backbone, and some of our closest friendships. We are both so lucky to come from big families that live close to us. Emily’s parents and brother live just 20 minutes away and Matt has three siblings that live within a couple hours drive. Holidays, birthdays and vacations are always cause for big celebrations and we know that adding a new baby to the family would be one of the biggest celebrations yet.

We have big hearts and a lot of love to give. We feel that we have so much to offer your child. Our home is safe and in a neighborhood filled with children and families. Our jobs are stable and provide financial backing for all the adventures that we love to take. We have the resources to support their education, social and emotional growth.  Most importantly, we want to nurture a sense of family by giving all the love we have in our hearts and maintaining a strong relationship with you, if that is what you desire.

If you choose to make an adoption plan, we hope that you will consider allowing us to be a part of it. We want to provide support and love for you and your child.

With love,

Emily and Matt
