 Kylie: Before Matt and I got married, we both dreamed of starting a family shortly after.  Adoption initially came up when we were discussing growing our family. I have always had this passion for adoption. When I was in college I babysat for a family that had adopted a little boy from Vietnam. Seeing how this family brought him home and loved him unconditionally was a really cool experience. Also, through my work I have experienced different forms of adoption and how it can really fulfill a family. Matt and I went through several months of infertility and we finally came to the point that we had enough of the doctors visits, medicine, shots, etc. We really felt that our calling to grow our family was through adoption. From the beginning we have always said that family is more than just a biological connection and that adoption allows us the opportunity to expand our lives by allowing us to share our unconditional love with a child. We are grateful for this journey on which we have embarked, and we pray that we find our child soon. 

Matt: For many months, Kylie and I have been trying to start our family but have been repeatedly unsuccessful. Since before we met, I had always considered adoption. I have had friends that have had successful adoptions and those stories gave me encouragement. We are excited to grow our family through adoption.
