Questions from birthmoms

Have you ever wondered what questions a birthmom asks when she contacts us?
These are the top questions...

How old are you guys? 
Matt is 27 and Rachel is 24. 

How long have you been married?
We have been married for over 5 years. Yes, we were young when we got married, but we KNEW we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together seriously from our 2nd date!

What hobbies do you both enjoy?
Photography, golf, basketball, football, playing games, watching sports, and spending time with friends and family

How did you guys come to the decision of adoption?
We have had many positive conversations about adoption as far back as when we first started dating. We have always discussed that adoption would be apart of our plan and our future family. After struggling with infertility for 4 years, we decided that adoption would be a new, amazing step to take!

Do you have any family members or close friends who are adopted?
YES! Matt's father is adopted as well as our sister-in-law.

What ethnicity is Rachel?
Rachel is half African American and half Caucasian.

What do you two do for a living?
Matt is an accountant and Rach is a 1st grade teacher & photographer.

What is your parenting style?
Most importantly we believe in always building our child's self esteem. The way we speak your children becomes their inner voice! We also believe positive communication and being a consistent role model are imperative, so they can grow up and continue those good habits with their own future families.

Do your families support your adoption plan?
Absolutely YES! They are our number 1 advocates for our adoption and have done nothing but support us 110% through this process.

Are you interested in an open or closed adoption?
Depending on what you are comfortable with, we are open to sending pictures, updates, and a yearly visit.
