FC: Matt & Heather

1: Thank you for taking the time to view our profile, hopefully this will give you a quick glimpse of our lives as we wait to be blessed with a precious child. We know you have a big decision to make and we pray that God will lead you to that perfect family. We cannot imagine the challenges you are going through, but know that we pray for Gods peace on you as you make a decision. - Matt & Heather | Dear Birth Parents,

3: We met in the summer of 2004 and were introduced through a mutual friend. We found ourselves sitting at a table all night talking about everything from religion to family. We then realized that we went to the same church. At the end of the night we exchanged numbers and I, Heather called Matt two days later. We decided to meet up at the beach and exactly one week later we were telling each other I Love You! All of this before he had even asked me to be his “girlfriend.” Eight months later we were engaged and on March 4, 2006 we were married. Since then, we have adopted our beautiful little girl Dakota. She has been the biggest blessing and has showed us the true meaning of love! We love being a family and building memories. We can't wait to give our daughter a sibling and grow our family. | About Us

4: We live an active lifestyle and some of the things that we like doing together are hanging out at the beach, and I love to sit and watch Matt surf! We also enjoy camping at the beach with our friends, going to the river, going to baseball games, hiking in our local mountains, and enjoy spending time with our family and friends. We are so excited to introduce all of these fun adventures with our child. We look forward to creating new memories with our family and friends, as they are also having children of their own. Don't let us fool you, we also enjoy just hanging out at our home on our couch, with some good food and a movie. | Our Adventures

5: We were both blessed to have grown up in a Christian home and family is very important to us. I, Heather have two brothers and two sisters and Matt has one sister. Together, we have three nieces and three nephews that are all under the age of five. We all live locally and get together quite often. We can't wait for the holidays summer BBQ's at Nana and Papas backyard, with all the little cousins. Our families are excited and can't wait for us to expand our family. | Our Extended

8: We live in the beautiful suburban city of Upland, California, with the beach 45 minutes away and the mountains 30 minutes. We have a panoramic mountain view, which is seen throughout the city. We have beautiful bike and horse trails that are perfect for a morning or evening walk. Our school districts are top rated and our city is clean, beautiful, and friendly, a perfect place to raise our children | Our Home

9: Matt's Thoughts | Heather is the most genuine, charismatic, fun-loving, and motivated and caring woman I know, and somehow I convinced her to marry me! She truly completes me. Heather has an unparralled love for life and others that lights up every room she steps into. Children are Heather’s passion. She works as a preschool teacher during the day and works with special needs children during the afternoon, helping them develop the necessary skill-set to adapt into society as adults. It takes a special person with a tremendous amount of patience and compassion to do her job and I know that it’s by no mistake that God has placed her into the children’s lives that she touches daily. When our nieces and nephews visit, I always need to be prepared for children’s sing-alongs (complete with the funny dances that she has mastered), trips to the park and a lot of crying when they have to leave. | On Heather

11: I was born and raised in Southern California and I have always loved being outdoors. I can remember going camping as a child with my family and loving Sequoia National Park. Just as I had as a child, I look forward to taking our child one day to the Redwoods and experiencing life under the stars. My parents have always been there for my siblings and I, and have given me great memories of my childhood. We are blessed to have both set of grandparents actively in our lives to this day. My mom is a Registered Nurse and she is such a beautiful, strong, and charismatic woman. My dad is a General Manager at a grocery store and has a landscaping business on the side. He has the most genuine heart and loving spirit that I have ever known. Both of my parents have been great parents to my siblings and I , and have become amazing grandparents. I have worked as a Pre-School Teacher for the past six years and enjoy teaching children ages 2-5. since the birth of our daughter I now stay home and enjoy being with my little girl full time. We have play dates with friends, go for walks, and enjoy being outside. | A Little More About Heather

12: What first attracted me to Matt was how friendly and nice he was. He is such a smart, loving, spontaneous, and full of life man. I love his view on life! After losing a father at such a young age, his faith has continued to grow so strong and he is always willing to share his faith with others. He is the man that tells me he loves me after every phone conversation, and those are the little things that mean so much!! Since Matt has become a Dad, I have gotten to see a side of him that projects so much joy and love for his daughter. | Heather's Thoughts On Matt

13: I was born and raised in San Dimas, California. I was brought up in a strong, loving Christian home with my sister Christina. A fond memory that I hold dear to my heart, is my dad teaching me how to surf at age 14. Ever since then, it has become my true passion! I have a big heart and like to call myself patriotic. I love mountain bike riding, Nascar, wake boarding, and surfing. I am full of energy and like to take advantage of any opportunity that I get try new activities. | A Little More About Matt

15: Our Faith | As Christians, we are both committed to our faith. We attend our church weekly and believe our faith will guide us into parenting as we start our family. We will raise our family in a loving Christian home and plan to send them to Christian school. We trust in the Lord with all our hearts and know that God is faithful and always in control.

21: We were asked once by our pre-marital counselors, “what if you aren't able to conceive on your own?” Matt quickly answered, “We would adopt!” That put a smile on my face, considering that was something we had not yet even talked about, until that moment. I have always had a heart to adopt and I know that God’s plans aren't always ours. But I always told myself that I would like to be a mother of three. And somewhere within those three, I would like to adopt! So here we are today, beginning our second journey with adoption and feeling overwhelmed with excitement to grow our family! We would welcome your baby into our loving, fun home with open arms. We promise to give them a life full of love, although life is not always easy, we promise to be the best example and share Gods grace and love for your child. We will continue to pray for you and thank you again for your courage to have an adoption plan and for giving a child life! Most of all we trust that God will find that perfect family for your child! - Matt & Heather | Why Adoption
