Jackie & Matthew
Our names are Matthew and Jackie. We want to express how thankful we are that you are considering us to be parents to your child. We admire and are humbled by your courage in taking this step to choose adoption for your baby. We are already adoptive parents, and know that words cannot express the love between a parent and child.
We have been married for 8 wonderful years. We met while working together and spending time with mutual friends. Matt is a financial controller, and prior to becoming a stay at home mom, Jackie worked in corporate retail in the fashion industry. We are a fun loving family who enjoy traveling, being outdoors, sports, remodeling our house, and spending time with family and friends.
We are both from big families and have always wanted multiple children. We have two daughters that we adopted at birth. Stella Reed, who is 3, and Mary James, who is 2. We have been blessed with continued communication with their birth parents. Our girls have brought so much joy and laughter to our family. We are very close to our families and regularly visit and vacation with them. There are 11 grandchildren (4 of which are adopted) including our children, which has provided our girls with many fun playmates! Our families are thrilled that we want to adopt another child. In addition to spending time with our families, we are very active in our church and community. We have many friends that live nearby in our close knit community, and we always enjoy our neighborhood cookouts!
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about us and our families. We have been incredibly blessed in so many ways already, and hope to be blessed with another child. If you choose us for your child, we promise to provide him or her with a loving, stable home surrounded by family and friends. All children are truly gifts, and you would be giving us the greatest gift imaginable by adding to our family. We pray that you may find comfort and peace in your decision to choose adoption.
