Matthew Secord (Matt) & Erica Secord
– Michigan –
We became a family through adoption and are honored to have the opportunity again! We love all that open adoption has brought to our family and are in a place in our lives where another sweet baby would make us all overjoyed and feel "complete." This child will be loved by SO many - such a privilege to receive so much love and attention from so many different ones in our lives! We long to hear baby giggles and the pitter patter of little feet again. Our kids make our lives whole and we cannot wait to open our arms to the "baby" of the family! (Little secret - I didn't even start dating my husband until I made sure he wanted kids first! That's how much I've always known I wanted to be called MOM.)
He dances with the kids, sings silly song, and rarely complains about anything in life. He always knew he wanted to be a dad and thoroughly enjoys the kids! He's always willing to lend a helping hand and has been a Computer Aided Designer since right after high school. He's dependable, easy going, and can get along with anyone.
A Drama Queen in a good way! She has a love of theater and entertaining others. When she commits to something, she is all in. Almost everything in her life has revolved around kids. Babysitting at an early age, elementary education, children's photographer, and her #1 goal always was to become a mom. Intelligent, creative, fun, loyal, and real. Loves to encourage others and when she's down herself she always picks herself back up and keeps going!! She hates to cook and probably isn't the best housekeeper around, but that's because she's always focused on what's in front of her and what's most important. She has true natural affection and her friends call her the "fun mom." She loves fiercely and deeply and that doesn't matter at all if the person is blood related or not.
