Friend for the day.

If you could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

it would be a tie between chocolate eclair cake and stawberry pretzel jello that is made at the holidays. It reminds me of the togetherness with my family before the pandemic.

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

it's incredibly family friendly and diverse, with parks to play and loved ones nearby. We're surrounded by countless culturally enriching opportunities, and so many avenues to connect with nature.

My philosophy on parenting is...

Focused on love, kindness, support and education. That's how I was raised - in a supporting loving family that values education.

Matt

What is the best word to describe your family?

The best word to describe my family is "uplifting." We support and encourage each other to be the best people we can be. We celebrate our differences and promote each other's goals, big and small.

My favorite place in the World is...

Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica, We did the excursion trip and climbed the 600 foot waterfall that empties into the sea. It was breathtaking when we got to the top of the falls.

Matt

My philosophy on parenting is...

We want our child to grow up feeling supported and with the understanding that they can be whoever they want to be - and we will be there to love and support them no matter what.

Kalyn

If I could have dinner with anyone -- dead or alive -- I would pick...

It would be our future child. Having your child join us would make mealtime memorable, and this would complete our table.

Matt

Favorite season and why?

Fall, where its not hot not too cold sweatshirt and jeans and football weather. Visiting Kalyn's family pumpkin patch to start a new tradition with our future child, and of course Thanksgiving.

Matt

We are the best choice because…

I've known my entire life that I wanted to be a mom and can promise you that I will be the best mother to your child that I can be - unconditional love, support, hugs, laughs & education.

Kalyn

If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

To put an end or to cure all terminal illnesses, cancers and diseases.

Kalyn

In five years, our relationship with you will...

Be strong and loving. You are welcome in our family for all events and anytime we can get together! We will never judge any decision you make and want to be as supportive as possible.

Kalyn

Dogs or cats?

Dogs, I grew up around Dogs, so I was always chasing the Frisbee in the yard with them. My parents have a Pitbull who is the biggest lover, and she can not wait for a new best friend to play with.

Matt

Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

At a place in life that she is happy with. We hope we are in contact and that she is involved in some capacity with our family life.

Matt

If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

For people to be more empathetic of each other's living conditions, backgrounds, circumstances. I wish we could all realize that we're on the same team. That everyone deserves a good life.

Matt

If you could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Ice cream, I have a sweet tooth for Moose Tracks Ice Cream. I can eat it all year long. I even eat it in the winter.

Matt

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

When I look at the night sky, it always makes me stop and think about what I am grateful for at that moment.

Matt

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

It is quiet, safe, the neighbors all know each other and look out for one another. There are many other families with children. It is a great place to grow up and have a childhood!

Kalyn

We are the best choice because…

we have so much love to give another child, and a great support system of extended family and friends who are excited to welcome a new addition into the family through adoption.

Matt

What is the best word to describe your family?

Supportive. We may have many different interests, but we push each other to pursue them & to better ourselves. We strive to find happiness in everything we do.
