Maria & Mat
Dear Birth Parent, Hello! We are Mat and Maria. We have been happily married for 17 years and are blessed with a 9-year old son, Christopher, who is the joy of our lives. After giving birth to Christopher, we planned on having more children, but sadly, suffered several miscarriages. We truly believe that somewhere out there, there is a baby who is meant to be a part of our family, and that somehow, they will make their way home to us, so we can love and care for him or her as we do for Christopher. Our hopes and dreams for our children are that they are happy, healthy and always feel loved. .
Our Story: We met 25 years ago at a school basketball game, and have been inseparable ever since! We are still best friends...and still very much in love. We are devoted parents who will provide a loving, warm and safe home for a baby, with lots of hugs, kisses and I love you's. We strongly believe in parenting by making children feel heard, treating children with respect, and showing them they will be loved no matter what. We also believe that a strong education is very important, in whatever field our children choose. Part of the education process, beyond number grades, is learning to work hard, assume responsibility, ask for help when needed, and learning from mistakes. Mat's best friend (who is our son's godfather), and Christopher's best friend from school are both adopted, and we have lived their journey alongside them. We believe with all our hearts that adoption is how we were meant to expand our family. About Maria: Maria used to teach children with special needs. She has been a stay at home mom for 9 years
and plans on remaining one until the kids are grown. "Maria was born to be a mom. If every child grew up with a mother like Maria, the world would be a much better place. She is my best friend and the best person I have ever met! She knows how to make me laugh. She is a little shy, gentle, and the best person to give advice." -Mat About Mat: Mat is Vice President of a company, a hard worker who always puts his family first: he is home in time for dinner together, to play with our son, and to help with homework.
"Mat is the best role model a child could ask for, and a natural with kids. He is very funny and playful, always up for a game. Mat is patient and kind, and he makes us feel safe and loved." -Maria About Christopher: Ever since he could talk, Christopher has been asking for a brother or sister. He is gentle with babies, shares his toys, and likes to teach little kids how to play. Christopher is very excited to adopt a baby! He says he wants to learn all about babies so he can help take care of his new brother or sister.
About Our Home: We live in a friendly, small town. In our experience, it is a great place to raise a child. Our neighborhood has a lot of young families. We live in a comfortable, kid-friendly home with toys everywhere, and a big yard great for kids, dogs and playing ball! Extended Family and Pets: Maria is very close to her family. They are warm, loving and very happy and supportive of our decision to adopt. Maria's parents, sister, grandma, aunts, uncles and cousins are eagerly awaiting baby's arrival! Mat is also close to his family. They are very supportive of our decision to adopt. Grandma, Grandpa and Auntie can't wait to meet our newest family member! We also have furry family members! All our pets are kid-friendly. Ronan and Scooter, our dogs, are gentle, and Marty the cat is used to little kids petting him.
