Matt & Cassie
Watch Our Video
We have enjoyed 11 years of marriage and are excited to welcome another little one into our home. We see parenthood as the most important thing we will do in our lifetime and have prepared our family life with that in mind. We are praying for you and your child. We want you to know that we will love your child with all our hearts!
We met in 2009 on a medical mission trip to Mexico and began seeing each other in May of 2010. After a whirlwind courtship and engagement, we were married in November 2010. Matt served in the Army from 2010 to 2018. We enjoyed the military lifestyle that allowed us to experience different parts of the country. During that time we also experienced several miscarriages and struggled with infertility. Ultimately that led us to adoption, and in 2017 we were blessed to adopt our son Sidney. After he was born we decided to forgo the military lifestyle and move back home to Texas.
We enjoy spending time together as a family. Our weekends consist of going to the park and getting together with cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. We also enjoy hanging out at home and grilling out with friends. Once or twice a year we go on longer vacations. We like to go to the beach in Florida and ski in Colorado. Sometimes we find a fun place to camp. We look forward to sharing with our kids the value of hard work and a love for the outdoors.
Matt is loyal, loving, faithful, caring, genuine, and fun-loving. He loves to spoil our family whenever given the chance. Matt is a strong leader and excelled in his military career, and more recently as a real estate developer. He loves to spend his free time outdoors enjoying nature and working on ranch projects. Matt loves spending time with Sidney, especially going fishing or jumping on the trampoline. Matt is a loving father and is excited to see our family grow. He is excited about playing wrestling games, singing, and learning about nature with another son or daughter.
Cassie's most conspicuous personality traits are her abilities to nurture and love. She is the sweetest, most loving person I have ever met. Her love is the greatest blessing I have ever received in my life. She finds great fulfillment in managing our little household and likes hosting parties with family and friends. She also enjoys various craft projects and has built several pieces of furniture. Cassie loves music and is an accomplished piano player. She sings to our son every night at bedtime, and that’s one of the things I know she’ll enjoy sharing with your baby should you choose our family.
Our Home in Texas
We live in a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house in a new community. We have a spacious backyard with a swing set and trampoline and we frequently spend evenings grilling out on the patio and/or watching our son play. Bailey is our golden retriever who is extremely friendly with new acquaintances of all ages. She's always been very good with our son and he loves playing with her.
Our Son and Family
Sidney is five years old and such a joy. He loves playing outside, whether it's jumping on the trampoline, playing in his sandbox, or pushing his trucks through the yard. He always enjoys it when we go to our community pool, local parks or to see Daddy at his office. He is very talkative, inquisitive, and always loves listening to music and singing. Sidney loves babies and will make an amazing big brother.
We both come from large, loving families of faith. Matt comes from a family with deep roots in Texas and is the oldest of four siblings. His extended family frequently gathers for holidays and vacations, with all four generations enjoying time together. Cassie is the oldest of five siblings and we enjoy getting together and visiting with her side of the family often. There are lots of cousins on both sides to hang out with.
Our love will ALWAYS be unconditional. We will provide for our children in every way through the abundance we have been blessed with. We will seek to educate their minds and provide for their physical and emotional needs as we teach them to daily love others as themselves. We are devoted to passing on our love for the Lord to our children and sharing with them our passion for music and nature.

We both grew up in loving, God-centered homes with parents and grandparents who loved the Lord and sought to share their love for Him with us. We love the Lord with all our heart, soul, and mind and seek to serve Him every day in all that we do. We model Christ's love before our children and share our heart for the Lord with them. We believe that we are saved by grace alone through faith in the redemptive love of Christ on the cross.
Our Musical Interest
We both grew up taking music lessons, so music is a big part of our home life. We enjoy listening to country music and praise music. Sidney has his own Preschool music station on Pandora that he daily asks to listen to. Matt played the guitar growing up and every once in a while will get it out and will play it while Cassie plays the piano. Sidney loves to sit at the piano and sing with Mommy. We enjoy music concerts as well. Every year at Christmas the local community Orchestra has a Christmas concert and we make it a point to attend. When Rodeo time comes around we enjoy the country artist concerts.

We look forward to taking your child on our yearly vacations and ski-trips, teaching them about the family’s ranch, and sharing with them the joy of going to football games!
