We are Carrie and Matt! We reach out knowing that you are making a hard decision, and our paths are crossing under difficult circumstances. We pray for peace for you and your growing child as you walk this road.
Carrie and I have known each other since we were little kids. I grew up in Bolivia with missionary parents who teach poor farmers how to drill water wells. On visits back to the United States, our families would meet up and play together. After Carrie and I finished college, we started dating and got married soon after! Now Carrie works as an architect and I work in computers.
We've always been interested in adoption as a way of building our family. After failing to conceive even with medical help, we started the adoption process sooner than we expected. Both of our families are very supportive, and adoption is even part of my own history. Three of my sisters were adopted from Bolivia, and my family is bilingual in English and Spanish.
Our house is full of laughter and music. I make bad jokes, Carrie still thinks I'm hilarious, and we both play instruments and sing together. We love being outdoors, running, watching movies, and playing board games with our friends.
We're open to adopting a child of any race and will work hard to make sure that the child has people available who can mentor and identify with them. I also have sympathy for children with special conditions, such as mental illness, having experienced a bipolar episode almost ten years ago. I learned about the importance of having people who love and support you through hardships, and to keep up hope.
We want the best for our family, including rich lives filled with creativity, joy, and most importantly, genuine faith and peace in God. We're open to meeting and maintaining a relationship with you into the future as well. You'll always be part of your child's story, and your child will know that he or she has always been loved.
Much love, Carrie & Matt
