Dear Birth Mother,
First off thank you for choosing to give your child life. We know that it’s so much more than just a choice but a selfless couragous kind act of love to allow your child to be adopted into the arms of another Family. We hope that you will have peace knowing that your child will grow up hearing about the loving act that you have displayed by giving them a chance to be loved by a welcoming family. We pray for you and your child and encourage you to trust in God’s plans.
Thank you for looking at our Lifebook and getting to know our family through these words and pictures. I’ts hard to try and portray who exactly we are as a family in a little book but we hope that it gives a little glimpse into our Family life and hope and pray that you feel comfortable to trust us with your child’s care. We have always felt that the Lord has put it on our hearts to adopt and ten years and 3 children later we are ready to complete our family.
We cannot wait to meet you and learn more about the hopes you have for your child and their future. Thank you so much for the chance to be considered as a potential Family for your child.
Matt and Kenda
We met in January 2009 and after six whole weeks we got engaged. When you know you know! And, we were married September 5th 2009.
With currently having three children and having a desire to grow our family, we try our best to make sure we plan one on one time with each individual child as often as possible.
Matt and I both come from larger families and realize the importance of cultivating a relationship with each child individually to grow their sweet personalities and build that line of communication with our children.
There are so many wonderful things, That I love about Kenda, the first thing that comes to mind is that she is genuine. When she says something she really means it, she is a straight shooter and I love that about her !
I remember the first time I met Kenda she glowed with beauty and had such a sweet, kind personality and was very easy to talk to.
Kenda is a very strong woman. Our first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. It was a very hard and trying time for us, but Kenda remained strong and faithful and just a few months later she became pregnant with our first child, Kennedy.
It was an amazing thing to see Kenda transition into motherhood. To say she is a natural is an understatement. Her dream when she was a little girl was to grow up and be a mommy and that’s exactly what she is doing now, she works so incredibly hard to make all our children feel loved the same and our fourth child will be no exception. Please know that Kenda and I will love your child and care for it just as we have our three children.
When I was a younger teenager I attended a youth camp. One night at camp the speaker taught on dating with a purpose. She spoke about the verse 1 Corinthians 3:4-8. Love is patient, love is kind. When Matt and I started dating I would replace the word “love” with Matt. Did it line up? Matt is patient, Matt is kind, Matt does not envy, he does not boast…. Well it lined up and I just knew in my heart that the verse that was brought to my attention nearly ten years before was explaining the type of love and character my future husband would have. Matt has continued living that out over the past 10 years of married life. He is a wonderful example to our children on how a father and husband should love, lead and protect their family. Our children are truly blessed to have him as their daddy. I know that love will only continue to multiply as we welcome another child into our lives.
