Dear expectant mother,
We want to thank you so much for taking the time to view our website, read our story, and learn a little bit about us. It means the world that you might think of us as worthy of raising your baby. We know that no part of this process is easy for anyone involved, and we admire the love and strength it has taken you to consider this path. We hope that reviewing our website will show you how excited we are to be parents!
Our names are Blake and Matthew. We are two married men who live the beautiful suburb of Marana, Arizona, just northwest of the sunny, vibrant, and multi-cultural community of Tucson. Blake grew up here while Matt was born and raised in Orange County, California. Both musicians, we met in 2016 through Instagram while both working in the music industry in California and began dating after attending an Ariana Grande concert together! We have lived together in Orange County, Nashville, and finally ended up here in 2018. We got married in 2019, bought our first house in 2020 and finally purchased our forever home (the perfect house to bring a baby home to!) in 2022! We are surrounded by friends and family in our community and never feel a lack of love and support and just know that our future baby/babies won't just be gaining the love of 2 dads, but the love of an entire village.
We have three dogs - two 12-year-old Chihuahua mixes and a 5-year-old Beagle/Lab mix - named Chandler, Monica, and Joey. Blake still works in the music industry as a Senior Licensing Manager for a non-profit organization called ASCAP that represents songwriters while Matt is the Marketing Manager for Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa, a wellness destination that focuses on mindfulness, meditation, and unplugging from technology and connecting with nature and yourself.
We are best friends. We love spending time together. We laugh more with each other than with anyone else. We can’t wait to grow our family and add little baby giggles to the mix.
Below you will find some more facts and stats about us individually. You can also learn a lot more about us through our adoption blog and our social media pages! Of course, we are happy to answer any questions you may have about us, our decision to adopt, and how we see us raising our children and building our life! Just send us an email!
