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!

What We Want You To Know....You Are Wanted

Sweet one, there are going to be so many doubts. We know this is confusing and scary and we can imagine it makes you question everything. But in the midst of the confusion, there are a few things we want you to know. Like deeply deeply know, at the core of who you are.

Sweet one you are WANTED! Not just that you were wanted so we adopted you as in past tense but that you are currently and forever will be wanted. You have a lifetime of being desired and longed for. We promise to seek after your heart, we want to know you fully, who you are, what you love, your desires and joys. We want to know your fears and insecurities and we want to face those with you. You'll never walk this alone, we are here to love and guide and encourage you. We want YOU! But sweet one it gets better!

You have value beyond measure, you will never grasp you worth until one day you sit at the feet of Jesus and He is telling you of His great love! Your whole life He will softly be wooing you, drawing you closer and closer to Him. He wants you to find your delight in Him. Your dad and I constantly pray that you will know Jesus and of His mighty love!  In knowing Jesus, you will know how wanted you are. No matter what country or city you find yourself in. No matter the culture or the family, you are so wanted by Him. He longs for you to let Him in! And the best part, is that when you get to know Him, you start to see Him in you. Seek after Him all you days, believe in the core of who you are that He wants you.

You will never look into my face and see similarities but because you bear His image, you'll find your face in His! Even more than we love you and even more than we are your parents, He is your sweet loving daddy. His arms are always open, no matter how angry or hurt or confused you are, He ALWAYS wants you! We will fail as your parents even though we try our best but Jesus never fails. He perfectly loves you and never gives up on you. Even when you know His heart, He wants more and more of you. There has never been and never will be a day that He doesn't want to know you. We pray you truly know that.

And, as you start to read His story and His truth in the Bible, you'll see your brothers and sisters in Christ who were also adopted and who grew up in different cultures! Look closely at Moses and Ruth, even Jesus was adopted by Joseph. You are His child and in that you will do great things! What amazing things they did because they knew Jesus wanted and loved them! Each in our unique way with a unique story are woven into His family. I have no idea what is written in your story but as you learn how much Jesus wanted you, We pray that you are used to do mighty things!

Sweet one, we deeply deeply love you but it pales in comparison to how much Jesus loves you. We want you to first know your importance to him and second know your importance to us. We want YOU! We didn't just want a child from a different country and culture, we want you! We don't know who you are but we pray for you and one day when we do meet, you'll be the face of the one we've waited expectantly for. There may be days down the road when other kids come into our family either through adoption or biologically but that doesn't change that we want you. You see adoption has never been a fall back option or Plan B. Since early when we were dating, your dad and I talked about wanting to adopt. We've clearly felt it is one way Jesus is making our family. Every step of this process has been well worth getting to be your mom and dad. God chose adoption for our family and He chose you for us! We adore you! Please always know that, we want you! All the days of your life and beyond YOU ARE WANTED!!
