Hello! We are Matt & Matthew…and Simon. First, we would like to thank you for taking the time to read about us. We understand that you are making an important decision that may be difficult for you. We recognize your courage. We are honored that you may be considering us as part of your adoption plan and hope that you enjoy this glimpse into our lives.
We have been together for 18 years and have always dreamed of starting a family. Seven years ago, we welcomed our son, Simon, into our family. When Simon arrived, we knew that he would not be the only child in our family. It will be our responsibility to ensure that the next child that we welcome into our family develops a strong sense of who they are and where they come from. We look forward to building a relationship with you that is within your comfort zone.
We’d like to tell you a little bit more about us and our lives. We have both dedicated our lives and careers to working with children. Matt has been a teacher and elementary school principal in New York City. Matthew is a child psychologist.
We have a large but close-knit extended family. Between us, we have 6 siblings and 12 nieces and nephews. Almost everyone lives nearby, and we see family members on a weekly basis. We have been very active in the lives of our nieces and nephews and look forward to inviting the love and support of aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins into our child’s life.
We have so much love in our hearts and would love to welcome another child into our family.
