Meet Tricia and Matt...
We met on a blind date in Boston in the Spring of 2013 and we quickly learned that we had many shared interests including traveling, spending time with family, and participating in outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and going to the beach. We got married in the winter of 2015 and four years later we welcomed our son, Luke, into our family through adoption. Luke is a lovable, curious, outgoing, and adventurous toddler who loves books, Play-doh, hide and seek, chasing our dog, Emmett, and anything related to Elmo!
We are now a loving family of three and we are excited to open our hearts and our home to a second child through adoption.
Special Activities We Look Forward To Doing with Our Child:
We can’t wait to share some of our favorite activities with a new baby! We are a very active family and we love to explore the outdoors. We often spend our weekends hiking the local trails with Luke in the backpack hiker and Emmett leading the way. We love spending time at the beach, bike rides, swimming at the grandparents’ pool, and taking in sporting events. We’re looking forward to having two children to share life’s special moments with such as birthday celebrations, holidays, and other milestone events.
Our Extended Family & Holidays:
We have a large extended family of aunts, uncles, and lots of cousins. We also have two nephews who are eight years old and 6 months old – Luke loves spending time with them! We are lucky because many of our family members live nearby so we get to see each other often and we never miss a chance to celebrate birthdays or holidays with our friends and family. Our holiday celebrations are typically spent with many family members gathered around an extended table to enjoy a delicious meal. At Christmas, Tricia’s side of the family has a big party – sometimes Santa joins the festivities and brings a candy filled piñata for the kids!
Our Adoption Story:
We are excited to continue to build our family through adoption. We feel very fortunate to have the resources to raise a family, as well as a supportive network we can lean on as we grow our family. Our tribe of friends and family are extremely supportive of our plans to adopt again. Luke is also excited to be a big brother. He is an amazing little kid who has a wonderful disposition and is very loving. He lights up whenever we talk about having a new baby in the family!
Our Home & Neighborhood:
We live in quiet, family-friendly neighborhood on a country road in a small town. We have a private, large backyard with a play set, firepit and a beautiful pond in the back of the property. We enjoy spending time in our yard visiting with family and friends, kicking the soccer ball around, and hiking on nearby trails. We love our neighborhood because it is filled with friendly people who are out walking their dogs. Many of our neighbors have young children and it’s a great neighborhood for trick-or-treating!
