OUR LIFE

TOGETHER

WE MET AND FELL IN LOVE IN THE SPRING OF 2009

We met when we lived in Kansas. Matt was working for a medical clinic and a local theatre

company in Wichita while Gabe was working for a college in Winfield. We moved in
together after about three months and shortly thereafter began the process of adoption.
Nine months later, along came Maddie.

Gabe is definitely the planner. He likes to have a clear plan of how to do things and likes
things in order. Matt is more the dreamer. He likes to dive right in and experience things like
an adventure. We feel our two personalities compliment each other very well.

Now that you know a little more
about us as a family, we want to
tell you a little bit about each of us

individually.

MattA Little About

I’m a Colorado native. I went to college Matt on the Island of La Grande Jatte in Paris, France

for a couple years before I decided I
wanted to become a professional actor.
After several years, I landed in Wichita,
Kansas. That’s where I met Gabe.

I love everything to do with music and
theatre. It’s definitely a passion of mine!
I also love cooking, movies, traveling,
camping, and spending quality time with
my family and friends.

One thing people will tell you about me
is my obsession with Christmas!! I love
decorating my home and doing all kinds
of fun holiday activities!

I can’t wait to be a big sister! I’m looking

baby sister who I can play with, sing songs
to, and read stories to.

I’m a very active girl and I love doing
things like swimming, karate, and riding
horses. I love spending time with my family
and I loved it when we went to visit Walt
Disneyworld!

You might be suprised to know that my
favorite food is salad! I love to sing and do
shows with my daddy. I also love going to
the movie theatre and doing art!
