Our names are Paul and Matthew, an international couple (one French, one midwestern American from St Louis, Missouri). We are an adventurous duo who have been together for 13 years. We were married 5 years ago in Brooklyn, NY. Our relationship has taken us from France (where we met), to England, Japan, Germany, and then spent 10 years living in Brooklyn. Last year, we made a choice to pursue a passion for nature and move to a new home in the magnificent Pacific Northwest, now calling Seattle home.
We own our home in a beautiful neighborhood called Capitol Hill, a diverse neighborhood walking distance from parks, schools, restaurants, and bordered with views of stunning Puget Sound and two mountain ranges: the Olympics and Cascades. We have made wonderful friends here in Seattle, many of whom have young children.
Having a child has been a goal of ours since when we first met. We promise to create a home for a child that is filled with love and support, and to expand the child’s understanding of the world – we are committed to making sure they also speak multiple languages as well!
We have not met you but we are filled with gratitude and admiration for your strength to consider this option and for your willingness to consider making us an entrusted part of your child’s life.
Although we cannot imagine the challenge of making this decision, we want you to know that we are dedicated to making a wonderful home for your child, and hope to work together to be part of each others lives, if that feels right to you. We return to New York often to see our friends and family as it is very important to us to maintain these relationships and would welcome organizing visits in NYC, near you, and hopefully in Seattle as well.
We look forward to meeting you and to beginning this beautiful adventure together. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us.
