Hello! We are Hayley and Matt.

We are so happy to share our story with you. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We have known each other for 17 years now, and married for over 14 of them. We met playing volleyball in college which led us to bond over our love for activity and healthy competition. In the first year we knew each other, we learned that we both had a heart for children, service, and helping others, which we have continued to this day. 

Our journey over the last 17 years has led us to travel, adventure, new friends, our amazing dog Fenway, heartbreak, and many different mountains to cross physically and emotionally. Together we have cried, argued, laughed, been scared, unsure, and excited about what our future has in store for us. Through all of our ups and downs, we have learned how to communicate, grow, and support each other in the best way possible. 

Adopting a baby has been on both of our hearts since the first time we talked about where we wanted our lives to go. It has hung heavy in our minds for years and we are so ready to take this next step in adopting.  After learning that we are unable to conceive our own children, adopting became a focus of ours. We are anticipating joy, sorrow, support, teamwork, adventure, and so much more in the coming years, and are ready to take on all of the obstacles so that we can enjoy triple the fun. 

We have built our lives in service as Matt is a teacher and Hayley is an RN.  We love to serve all people and help them in some of their most vulnerable times.  We also thrive on adventure, travel, and want to enjoy every culture this world has to offer. Our life plan is to continue this mindset of service and adventure with our future family, and experience as much as we can in this beautiful world.
