Adoption Video: Matt and Julia from Missouri

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on October 27, 2015

Matt and Julia have longed to share their hearts and home with a child, and are excited to do so through adoption. They are a young and vibrant couple. They have a large family, and each member is excited to meet the child God has chosen for them.

They live in Missouri in a family-friendly neighborhood. There are many parks in the area and they have a fenced-in yard with room to play. Matthew and Julia enjoy spending time with friends, going to festivals, and walking their two dogs. Matthew works as a wine sales specialist and enjoys volunteering, time with family & friends, and live music.   Julia is employed as a clinical social worker and likes crafting, quilting, working on puzzles, and sewing.

About his wife, Matthew shares, "She will make a wonderful mother because she loves children and interacts well with them in our extended family...Julia looks forward to all the challenges that will be associated with raising a child in our loving home." And Julia had these words to say about her husband, "He is hard-working and always puts the needs of others before his own wants. He will make a wonderful father because he is able to diffuse and shed a positive light on any situation."

Matthew and Julia's single-story home has a finished basement, three bedrooms, a large family room, two bathrooms, and a separate dining room.  They've been excitedly preparing the nursery for their child. They enjoy visiting and walking around the parks near their home.  The zoos and museums nearby are a great way to get out and experience something new, rain or shine!  Matthew and Julia are also big sports fans and are season ticket holders for their University’s basketball team.  From hockey to baseball to soccer, they have a great variety of of teams to root for!

If chosen, Matthew and Julia promise to provide a loving and safe environment in which your child will flourish. They're open to contact through pictures and visits, but will let you decide what level of openness you would prefer.
