We are Matt and Ashley Winter and we live in the beautiful state of Colorado with our adorable puppy Vader! We have been together for twelve years–married for almost eight. We met our senior year of high school at youth group in Southern California and quickly became good friends. We started dating the summer before college. We used to spend our Friday nights at Disneyland and some of our best conversations happened while waiting in line to ride Indiana Jones, Space Mountain, or the Matterhorn. We dated for four years before Matt proposed in a cute little restaurant built in a 100-year old farmhouse surrounded by Ashley’s best friends. We were married eight months later on a beautiful, rainy day in December.
We are here now because about two and a half years ago we decided it was time to start a family. We thought getting pregnant would be easy. Months of trying turned into years. We hoped medication would help and even tried some medical procedures to increase our chances. However, each month was met with disappointment. Through the grief and tears we felt God expanding our hearts with the desire to adopt. Through some unique circumstances we found Nightlight Christian Adoptions and made our decision to pursue domestic infant adoption. God is faithful!
We have officially completed our homestudy with Nightlight and are approved and waiting. This means we are eagerly anticipating being matched with an expectant birthparent(s). With the help of donations, grants, loans and fundraising we hope to meet the total cost of this adoption.
Please don’t hesitate to ask questions. We are so thankful for our amazing community of friends and family who have supported us and prayed for us in this journey from the very beginning. We are forever grateful!
With so much love,
Matt and Ashley Winter
