We hope you will be able to see the love we have for each other, our family, and future child. Adoption has been part of both of our lives (Nicole's brother being adopted, and Chad's son is adopted) and we have always known that adoption would be part of our lives together as a couple. We felt God planted that seed in both of our lives and know now it is a calling from him. We pray for you daily, that you have the strength and courage you need as you journey through this process. We know that you want what is best for your baby and we pray that you will find us to be all you hope for your child.
We both went through life for a while before finding each other but, the instant God put us together, we were inseparable. We met online in 2012 and spent the first few weeks chatting through yahoo messenger before finally meeting in person. When we did, there was an instant connection that felt like we had known each other for years. Little over a year and half later, we were married and have been enjoying life together ever since.
Nicole's Story Written By: Chad
Nicole is a loving and caring wife and mother. Nicole grew up in Texas. As a child, she loved to dance and bake cookies which has carried over to her adulthood. Every year you will see her and Matthew baking away, especially during the holidays. Nicole has been teaching kiddos in 1st or 2nd grade for the past 18 years. I can't imagine her doing anything else, she has patience of a saint. She seems to gain 20 more students as her "kids" because of the connections she makes with them on a daily basis. During her spare time Nicole loves to work out, you even might see Matthew joining in with her. She is an excellent chauffeur for Matthew when getting him to boy scouts, basketball, baseball practices and games. She also loves hanging out with her friends. Nicole loves being a mom and is looking forward to having another child join our family and complete it!
Chad's Story-written By: Nicole
Chad has such a big loving heart that everyone comes to know when they first meet him. He grew up in Pennsylvania and later on, after graduating college, he joined the army which later brought him to Texas.
Chad loves being a dad to Matthew and his bonus daughter, Kaelyn. Even though Chad had no legal ties with Kaelyn, that never stopped him from being a dad to her. He is the only man in her life and she grew up to love him as her father figure. Chad decided he wanted to make a difference in people's lives and left the corporate world to pursue nursing. He just graduated in May 2018. Chad's heart is what made me fall in love with him and makes him a great husband. He is always there for his family. Chad enjoys hanging out with friends and family, watching football and baseball with Matthew...Go Packers and the Rangers!!!! He continues to strive and do his best to be a role model for Matthew.
Our Catholic Faith
Our faith is very important to us and our catholic faith united us. we attend mass regularly and Matthew attends Catholic school. Our faith has helped us through life and we want to give that same gift to your baby. We trust that God has a plan for you, us, and your baby, and we can't wait for his plan to become reality.
Matthew is a smart, fun loving, spirited, outgoing, and athletic son, who will be turning 9 years old in October. Matthew will be a great big brother. He has a yearning to learn and be the best in whatever he does. We can see Matthew passing this trait on and helping out his baby brother or sister by being there as a role model and teaching them new things. Being a Gladney baby, he is very proud of being adopted and can't wait to have this in common with his new sibling.
This is our dog, Annabelle. She is a 10 year old Boxer, who loves cuddling and playing with her Bubba AKA Matthew. You will find she is such a loving dog and wants to be where the action is. Annabelle will follow us around the house and plop herself down wherever we are. When she isn't loving on us, you will find her in her favorite spot, her chair, dreaming away.
Thanks again for taking the time to learn a little bit about us. We wish you the best in whatever decision you make, and in the rest of your life.
