Dear Birthparent…

We are so thankful that you are reading about us.  We respect your strength and courage making such a difficult decision.  We have a loving family and hope that we can offer support to you and your child.

We have been married for seventeen years and have two children, Phoebe and Eve. We love being parents and are excited about welcoming another baby to our family.  Our daughters are beyond excited to have another sibling.

About Us…

Meet Ally:  I grew up and went to college in New England.  I work at a hospital.  I love being outdoors and spending time hiking in the mountains and relaxing at the lake.  I spend a lot of time with my family.  I love to cook, knit and read, but most of all, I love being a mom.  I can’t wait to expand our family through adoption and spend time at home with our new baby. My mom and mother and sister in laws are so excited too.

Meet Matt:  I grew up in the New England countryside.  I have a large family including my parents and three siblings.  One of my sisters lives next door with her family.  My younger adopted brother and sister also live nearby with my parents. It is very common for my whole family to get together for birthdays, holidays, graduations or just to be together.  I love learning and the outdoors.  After college, I became a teacher.  I enjoy coaching soccer and flag football, jobbing, skiing and snowboarding, and most of all, hiking in the mountains.  I can’t wait to share these experiences with the baby! I have a flexible schedule and will be able to spend quality time with the baby at home and at school.

Our Home and Pets…

We live in a small community in New England, near to the mountains and lakes.  We have hiking trails and sledding hills in our backyard. We love being outdoors and enjoy working on our house, gardening, having campfires and playing soccer in the backyard. In the summer we enjoy boating and swimming at our family lake house.  Family is always around and the cousins all enjoy playing together.  It’s a wonderful, safe place for children to grow.

Our Family…

We are Matthew and Allyson. We have been married for seventeen years and have two children, Phoebe, 14 and Eve, 12.  We are an active family who enjoys spending time together through hiking, skiing, boating, and other outdoor experiences.  Our extended family includes our parents, siblings, nieces and nephews and cousins.  We spend lots of time with our family and often travel on family vacations together. We recently enjoyed a road trip out West and traveled to the islands together.  We can’t wait to welcome a baby into our loving family.

Our Journey to Adoption…

We have a loving family and hope that we can offer support to you and your child. We have had experience with adoption through our family.  Matt’s brother and sister were both adopted.  We know that adoption is a true gift and we are excited about welcoming another baby to our family through adoption.
