Hi, we are Matt, Crystal, and Ella. Matt and I were both raised in Ohio and met at work. We were married in 2009 in a small ceremony with our closest friends and family present. We added our beautiful daughter, Ella, to our family in 2015 through adoption, and it has been the single best thing that has ever happened to us. We are excited to be in the position to grow our family again through adoption and thank you for considering us.
Matt and I both love Ohio State football, the outdoors, travel and family. We have visited many of the reportedly haunted places in the United States—we have never seen any ghosts, but we love the quirky history that they share on those tours. We have traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and through parts of Europe, as well. We are really excited to travel with our children and learn about different cultures.
Matt has a degree in Business and has a passion for finance. He works in the financial industry and loves to teach people how to reach their financial goals and prepare for retirement. Crystal has a degree in English and a master's degree in Management. She is a human resources manager for a retail corporation and loves developing new leaders.
Ella is a bright and energetic little girl. She loves to read, play outside, dance, and take care of her stuffed baby monkeys. Ella is loved by her entire family and enjoys being spoiled by her grandparents. Ella's biological parents, grandparents, and aunts all stay in touch with our family and love seeing Ella's adventures. Ella enjoys the time she spends with her biological families and we will maintain and encourage these relationships throughout her life. We understand that our bond with Ella's biological families is a special one and we wish for the child we are hoping to adopt now to have an ongoing relationship with his or her biological family as well.
We are truly grateful for your consideration.
