My Story

Matthew is more than what we could ask for in a son. He is very caring and loving to his family, friends, and people who come in contact. He is such a wonderful big brother to his little sister. Always making sure that she is doing what she is suppose to at that moment. Matthew loves reading, riding his bike, going outdoors, legos, Cub Scouts, watching Animal Planet, going to school, and living his life to the fullest.
