Hi! We are Matt + April.
Adoption is something we have been prayerfully considering for the past few years and feel is though God finally has our hearts ready! We’ve been married for 10 years and have experienced the highest of highs together but also the lowest of lows. We are not the same people we were when we met but we really feel as though we’ve gotten better together. Our daughter, Brielle passed away just shy of her third birthday in October 2014 after Jesus rescued her from her battle with Leigh’s Disease (a genetically inherited Mitochondrial Disease). The grief was overwhelming at first and our hearts were broken to pieces but our faith provided us with a foundation of peace, strength and joy bigger than any circumstance we could ever face. We know exactly where our little girl is and we can’t wait to be with her again, but we know life on this side of Heaven is meant for living and loving. While we’d give anything to have Brielle here with us to be the best big sister in the world, we know she will be cheering us on from Heaven. We truly feel that God has put it on our hearts to pursue adoption and we can’t wait to grow our family.
