Kim is a psychotherapist and gets a lot of fulfillment out of her work. It’s also a job that allows for a flexible schedule and gives her plenty of time with our kids and with the baby we will adopt. Matt is Director of Foreign Government Affairs of a major company. This gives us the security and benefits that comes from working for a big company, but because he works from home, it also gives him plenty of flexibility in his schedule for time with the kids and the new baby.
We are grateful to you for reading our profile and considering us as adoptive parents. We think you are brave and courageous to consider adoption. It is an act of profound love for your child as well as, an act of tremendous generosity to help a couple like us who is not able to have a child on our own. We are excited to learn about you as well as your hopes and dreams for your child. We are thrilled by the prospect of adopting your precious child and becoming parents together. We love children and are so ready to adopt.
We raise children with unconditional love, support and encouragement. We hope to raise a child who is creative and resilient. We teach our kids that they are safe at home and can take risks when they are ready and that we will be here for them throughout their lives. We are not particularly strict but we value respect for all creatures great and small. We value ethical treatment of everyone in the house and in the world.
We know we don’t need a biological connection to love a child. Kim came to the table with two kids from a previous marriage. Matt fell in love with them immediately. We wanted to have a child together and assumed we would have one biologically but it didn’t work out. We would be honored to complete the circle with the adoption of your child. We would make your child the center of our universe.
Our family is loving and fun. Our kids are 9 and 12 and live with us half time. Their dad lives nearby and we have a warm relationship with him and his new wife. In fact, we usually spend Christmas together as one big modern family. We get a giant tree in both houses. And trimming the tree is one of our favorite activities of the year. We all spend a lot of time selecting the perfect tree and wreath for our home. Everyone has at least a few ornaments that are special to them and we have lots of Christmas and holiday decorations that we spread throughout the house. We tend to go a little overboard on presents for everyone too, especially the stocking stuffers. There is a lot of interest in having a baby in our house. Kim and I are both gaga for babies and we can’t wait to welcome one into our loving crew.
Holidays and celebrations are big in our house in general. We like to celebrate all holidays, from Valentine’s Day to Christmas and each and every birthday. We have a tradition started by Kim’s mom Janet where we create a “birthday chair” laden with presents and balloons for every birthday boy or girl to wake up to. We also have Valentine making parties, Easter egg hunts, and the tradition of making yearly scrapbooks to commemorate each year of school. Thanksgiving is another big deal in our family. We usually gather as an extended family for Thanksgiving as we like to be around the fall foliage and it is a warm gathering for family who are spread out. We get together with cousins and aunts and uncles and have a massive dinner that spills over on three tables. We also like to invite friends who don’t have a lot of family or who have family that live far away. We consider our friends to be a part of our extended family network.
Hi! We are Matt and Kim. We live in Brooklyn. We love to travel and make the most of everything New York has to offer. We are both family-oriented people who cherish our immediate and extended family and stay deeply connected with friends we have made throughout our lives. We love living in a diverse city rich in culture and community. We feel that children benefit from experiencing the world and opportunities far and wide. We love playing in Prospect Park, picnicking under the cherry blossoms in the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, learning how to swim in the ocean in Costa Rica and climbing the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
All members of our family LOVE to travel. We have a tradition of going on a sunny vacation every February when all of us are sick of winter. We have traveled to Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica and Cartagena over the past few years. Every summer we go with our extended family to Block Island and to Stowe, Vermont every winter so that all the cousins can be together. Levi and Mila have 2 other sets of cousins around the same age who they have a blast with on the beach and in the snow. Our kids also love going to the various arts, theater and sports summer camps offered in Brooklyn when we are not on vacation. Our kids and their cousins are excited about the prospect of welcoming a baby into our family.
We like adventures. We like doing big projects together. Three years ago we found a house in Brooklyn with great potential. It was in terrible shape but the bones were good. Kim and I spent the next two years designing and gut-renovating this house which is now a beautiful home with a large green yard. We like to call it the Brooklyn Farmhouse. Lots of people asked how the renovation was affecting our relationship. We were pleased to report that our relationship was thriving under the pressure of such a big project. We were able to have fun with it and very much felt like we were on the same side of the struggle. We love each other and see each other very well and with a lot of empathy.
Matt is like a love bear. He is warm, caring and sensitive. Kids always gravitate toward him, as I did, because he has a way of making each person feel like the center of the universe. Matt is very smart, self-aware and pays attention to the details. I love how he is able to acutely focus on the relationships and matters right in front of him, but also stay attuned to global affairs and politics. I feel a great sense of relief in having Matt as a partner. He has a knack for saying just the right thing to mitigate any stress I might have and is extremely funny. He knows just the right moment to inject humor into a situation.
We know that we are meant to be parents. We feel that raising children is the most loving act a person can do. Raising a child reminds us of why we are human and what is most important in life. We love the two kids we have and we know that love makes more love in our modern family. Levi and Mila are as excited as we are to welcome a baby brother or sister. We are all so ready.
We hope this book has helped you learn more about us and the life we hope to offer a child. We are eager to learn more about you. Please call 800.933.1975. If you have any questions about the legal process, please feel free to contact our attorney, Suzanne Nichols. Suzanne is easy to speak with and happy to assist.
We wish you peace and joy.
With love, Matt and Kim
Kim is the loveliest human. She is a relentless force for good and goodness. She gives of herself constantly. She is fun and goofy and loyal and warm. She is beautiful beyond compare. She is the girl at the party who has so much style and grace that you cross the room just to be near her. She has dozens of life-long friends who are a tribute to how much she cares for her people and how much they care for her.
We are both trained as psychotherapists and we met through professional circles and were immediately drawn to each other’s sense of humor and warmth. When we met, we were already very clear about our needs and wants in a partner and we were able to recognize that in each other right away.
ADOPTION: If you are pregnant and considering adoption for your baby, please call 1-800-933-1975 to find out more about Kim and Matt.
