Matthew & James
Hi, we’re James and Matthew. James is a musician, and Matthew is a high school teacher. We have been together for almost 20 years, and we are excited to share our love with a child. James can’t wait to read books with lots of funny voices to a little person. Matthew is excited to sing songs and cook together. Or maybe we can just walk to the playground and swing on the swings. We want to show our child as much of the world as we can. We want to help them learn who they are and what they have to offer the world.
Hello! How do I even come close to expressing the appreciation and admiration I have for you for considering an adoption plan for your child. I wholeheartedly respect your decision and I’m humbled by your love for your baby. My journey to motherhood has been a long road, but one I’m 100% committed too. Adoption has always been a part of my family and I knew that I would be forming my own family one day and that adoption would be a part of that journey.

Hello. My name is Sakinah and here’s a sneak peek into my life, the people, activities and experiences that bring me joy. One of my favorite quotes is “the most wasted of days is one without laughter”. I love entertaining friends and family at my home and look for any opportunity to be outdoors. I have over 20 years of finance experience. My career started out in investment banking. This work was incredibly rewarding but left little time for a life outside of work. I currently work in the nonprofit sector. Work is important to me but my most important contribution to society will be raising a healthy, confident child.Learn more about Sakinah by viewing their profile here.
