Diane & Matthew
Hi! We are Matthew and Diane
You honor us by giving us the opportunity to share our lives with you. We’ve put together this portfolio to help you get to know our family and our passion for adoption. We hope that our words and photos will give you a sense of who we are and the warm and abundant love that we want to share with your child.
After almost 20 years of marriage, our dream of becoming parents came true through adoption. We had nearly lost hope when, finally, the stars aligned. A wonderful and selfless couple matched with us, helping realize our incredible dream of parenthood!
On September 24th, 2014 we briefly relocated to a remote Texas town of 3,400 people where a young doctor with cowboy boots under his hospital scrubs brought our beautiful baby boy into this world. Our son Griffin Charles is now three years old – the time between then and now has flown by quickly! After an arduous journey to becoming parents, we’ve enjoyed every moment of parenthood. We’ve enjoyed it so much, that we are certain it’s time to welcome a new addition to our family.
We want to thank you, not only for taking the time to read our letter but also for your selflessness in making an adoption plan. Your baby is lucky to have such a brave and loving mother who cares so much. We understand your goal is to find a home for your child filled with love and opportunity. We hope, with your help, we can give your baby that beautiful home. Matthew and Diane
