Thank you for taking the time to get to know us! We are so grateful you have chosen to learn more about us and our life together. It is important for us to acknowledge the strength and selflessness that we believe it takes for you to consider this journey. We hope to join you in creating a happy and healthy life for your child.
Our life together has made us into the individuals we are today, and we are happy to share some of that with you. As every family unit does, we have charted our own path by creating our own traditions, growing together as a couple, and learning about each other and ourselves as we continue along. We look forward to learning more about you and what makes you special, too.
You will be cherished and loved as a mother in our home, and we will honor and respect your decision with so much gratitude. We wish you all the best in your journey as you move forward!
We met back in April 2016 at our favorite coffee shop in Northeast Minneapolis after being introduced through mutual friends. We hit it off right away! We talked about fly fishing, camping, and our favorite places to travel. Mat told Travis about his study abroad adventures in Tanzania and how he researched aquatic life for five months! Travis spent his study abroad time in Venezuela, living with a host family and studying Spanish. We quickly recognized that being adventurous was something we had in common!
Our Family Was Built From Adoption
Mat’s uncle Rick was adopted when he was a baby and this is an important aspect of his life. Rick and his wife were fortunate to adopt their second daughter, Ruby, from China when she was two years old. Neither Rick nor Ruby know their birthparents. In learning about their perspectives and individual stories, we have talked a lot about how we appreciate the concept of openness in adoption. We want to be able to share stories, photos, and memories with you. Your child will grow up with a family support system that is rooted in adoption.
Until We Meet
Thank you for allowing us to share a little bit about our life together with you. We are so grateful for you considering us as adoptive parents for your child.
You hold a special place in your child’s life. Growing up in our family, your child will always know that. As a mother, you will be loved and respected in our home. It is important for us to share that we would like to maintain a level of openness with you that makes you comfortable and happy.
We are deeply grateful and wishing you strength and courage in this process.
