These high school sweethearts have been strengthening their relationship for almost two decades! Ariel and Matthew met in the high school marching band and have been inseparable since. Ariel is an occupational therapist and has achieved her doctorate degree. Matt is a mechanic engineer. This couple is in their early 30's. They have a heart for adoption and have chosen this way to grow their family. The couple adopted from Uganda in 2019 after pursing adoption with a young girl they fell in love with during mission work. Their sweet daughter passed away from a heart condition before making it home. Both adults are healthy and look forward to growing their family with a child of any gender or race. They enjoy traveling and trying new adventures. Their support system comes through family and church friends, where they are of the Christian faith.
