We were drawn to each other because we both listed the same book, Three Cups of Tea, in our profiles.
Our journey together began over a decade ago when we met online. We were drawn to each other because we both listed the same book, Three Cups of Tea, in our profiles. Jessica had recently read the book and Matthew had just met the author at an event. We wouldn't necessarily say that it's our favorite book, but it did help bring us together. We could have easily just passed each other by in that moment and are so grateful that we found each other in this way. Since we met each other in our late twenties, we both had established careers. We lived a few hours apart from each other, so we continued to build our relationship through phone calls and spent time together on the weekends. This helped us form a solid foundation for communicating with each other and we cherished our time together even more. We enjoyed visiting with each other's families, traveling to historical sites and trying out new restaurants, especially if they had pizza! A few years later, we were married on an unseasonably warm December morning in the Missouri wine country surrounded by our family and friends. Today our marriage is still as strong as ever. We love just being together, whether that's at home or exploring new places together. We encourage each other to pursue our passions in life and help each other reach our goals. We also took a leap of faith by moving to a new city to have a more secure and stable life for our own family's future. We are excited about our journey and making new memories in the years ahead!
Why We Are Adopting
Adoption is the best way for us to become parents.
Playing with Roscoe at home
We have always wanted to have children and Jessica shared early on in our relationship that she wanted to include adoption as a way to grow our family. We waited several years after we were married to start to grow our family and then we struggled for several years thereafter with infertility. After seeking guidance, we decided that adoption would be the best way for us to become parents. We are so excited to take on this new adventure together. We know that we have a lot of love to share and can't wait to share it with a sweet little one.
We would be honored and humbled to walk alongside you in this journey.
We hope this profile provides you with a small glimpse into our lives.
