|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Matts special interests include exercising, hiking, camping, home and garden projects, movies and music. He an avid sports fan and already has baby outfits from his favorite teams picked out for our future child.
Ashley enjoys having tea or going for a walk, while connecting with friends. She is self-motivated and productive by nature and often found seeking out the best healthy recipes and natural products for herself and for children. She also enjoys reading, doing gymnastics, coaching soccer, doing anything active and outside in nature, and helping others.
We are Christians who put God at the center of our hearts, our home and all of our relationships. We lean into God as our protector, provider and power in all areas of our life and let our faith pour out of us to others each day.
|Our Musical Interest|
We enjoy many different musical interests. Matt had a deep love for all music, including some of the "old school" classics and Ashley loves contemporary christian, country, pop and anything that she can dance to with Bella!
|About Our Home |
Our home is centrally located to our incredible church, work, and many of the family and friends in our life. We enjoy being surrounded by several parks, hiking and biking trails and many family friendly activities that we love to enjoy. It also has a community center with a swimming pool, farmers market, fitness center, children’s classes, summer concerts and many more community focused activities. There are a few lakes around us which we enjoy stand up paddle boarding and just relaxing by the water to embrace the peaceful nature of being surrounded by Gods beautiful creations. The mountains are visible almost everyday and we are about an hour drive from Denver. There are also mountain towns nearby that offer skiing and snowboarding activities that people travel from all over the world to enjoy.
Ashley has family back in Philadelphia, where she is from, who they visit a few times a year. We also enjoy taking family road trips back to Nebraska to visit Matt’s parents, siblings and all of their children.
|Our Family |
Bella has been praying every night for her little sister or brother for years now and is looking forward to having a sweet child to share her love of life and family with. She is a light in our life and her personality continues to blossom each day. Bella is a tender and strong little girl, who thrives in settings with younger children who she can care for. She has amazing relationships with her cousins and friends. Bella has been articulate and curious from a young age and embodies joy and love. She has a heart for others and a deep, intuitive sensitivity that is well beyond her years. Bella can often be found building forts, playing soccer, being the teacher for her dolls and stuffed animals, or using her creativity outside playing in the yard.
All of our extended family is thrilled and excited about our decision to adopt and can’t wait to embrace our new little one into the supportive and loving family that we already have. Ashley’s family enjoys each other immensely and is close knit in nature. Most of Ashley’s immediate family (along with plenty of extended family too) is in Colorado and you can usually find us doing “family workouts”, enjoying BBQ’s, going to church, and having family game nights together. All of Matts immediate family is located in Nebraska and they all are kindhearted, down to earth, Midwesterners who keep family at the center of each of their homes.
