Children In Family


Plans For Number Of Children

Race Of Child

We are open to any ethnicity.

Plans For Work/Daycare

When Kaylee came into our lives Rhonda cut back on her hours so she could spend more time with Kaylee. She only works four days a week and is done by 2pm, and then every other Saturday until noon. Once a new child comes into our lives, she will take another day off. When she does work, we will use a licensed day care facility.

About Matt & Rhonda (Written By Their Partner)

Matt is very family-orientated. When he is not at the farm, he is usually playing with Kaylee. He grew up with two older brothers and two younger sisters. He has thirteen nieces and nephews, it is clear how much he loves kids. He is an amazing father.
Matt is calm and laid back. He doesn’t let much get to him and he is always telling me it will be ok. He is also very caring and has a wonderful heart.

Rhonda is one of the best moms I know. When we adopted Kaylee, she cut back her hours so she would have more time to spend with her. She always said when we have kids she will make time and enjoy every minute with them, and she does. She is kind, caring, and has a huge heart. It is easy to see when the two of them are together what a wonderful bond they have. She is also very organized so she always knows what is going on and where we need to be.

A Message From Us Both

As a little girl, I always knew that I wanted to have children. As I grew up the feelings grew stronger. Unfortunately, when I turned 26 I had to have a hysterectomy. This was a very difficult decision to make because I didn’t have any children yet, and I knew I wanted them. I knew I always had the option to adopt and there was no doubt in my mind that was what I wanted to do.
The night Matt and I met, I told him I couldn’t have children but wanted to adopt. He didn’t even blink an eye, and we have been talking about it ever since. We are both very excited.

The most important thing we want you to know is we will love your child unconditionally. We will give him/her all the love, guidance, and happiness we can. Thank you for considering us to be the parents we want to be for your child.
