About Us

We are Chris and Megan. First and foremost we love our Savior, Jesus Christ. We are daily humbled by His plan for our lives and love seeing what he does when we trust him. We have always wanted to adopt but had planned on having biological kids first. We felt God calling us to adoption first and after lots of prayer are excited to be starting our first adoption! We love the people and culture of Uganda and are excited to bring that culture into our family. We seek to honor God in our adoption and eventually in the way we raise our kids. We covet your prayers as this will be a long but exciting journey to our forever family!

Update and Another Fundraiser

We had a 2 1/2 hour call last week, and an hour call this week with our social worker...Can I just tell you I LOVE our social worker! She is easy to talk to, understands our concerns and is willing to walk the distance with us. She is preparing us for each step of the journey but also helping to prepare our hearts to be parents to our child. I'm so grateful for her expertise, she makes me feel protected in a journey that often feels very uncertain. We are inexperienced at this whole parenting and adoption thing but we've never felt demeaned or like our infinite questions are silly.

We will be starting our home study soon...hopefully this week or next. I've realized I've thrown that term around and it confuses many people. A home study is basically an assessment of us as individuals, us as a couple and our physical home. It is a thorough study to make sure we are ready and capable to adopt. It's a long and often time grueling process but I appreciate that they look closely at who they let adopt. This should take us multiple weeks, and in the middle of it we will have to move out of our tiny one bedroom house to a place with at least 2 bedrooms. You can be praying for us to find a great place and for a smooth transition.

Did you see my post about my new Jubilee's Jewels necklace on Facebook or Instagram? I love it and wear it constantly! It's a great reminder and conversation piece to share our story and God's goodness in our adoption. And...you could have one similar!!

We truly hate asking for money but our next fundraiser benefits not only us but also you!! Jubilee's Jewels is hosting a fundraiser for us. It will start next Sunday (April 6) and end Saturday (April 12). We get $5 of every purchase under $25 and $7 of every purchase over $25. The best part is, most pieces are customizable and they have tons of different styles to choose from. Later this week I'll post the code to use when checking out. So start looking for something for yourself, sisters, moms, friends. They would also make great personalized Mother's Day presents which is just around the corner!

  1. It’s normal to feel uncertain on things you have no prior experience about. More so since this journey is obviously not an easy one, so you will need the guidance of someone who understands and you could talk to easily. I’m glad you had that person who can weigh in and advise you on your decisions. After all, parenting is never an easy task, whether it is adoptive or not.
