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!

Agency Trip Day 2: Important Meetings

Thank you thank you those of you who prayed for our agency yesterday. Please continue praying for safe traveling by car, taxi, bus, boda-boda!

Today we would love for you to pray these things specifically:
Uganda is a a very fluid place. One of my favorite things about Ugandans is that they are more concerned with people and events than timelines and appointments. This allows for awesome and stress free conversations. They fully invest in relationships rather than cutting it off for a previously made appointment.  However, you can imagine the difficulty this can create when important meetings need to take place.

Today would you pray that two meetings are kept:
1. A meeting with Ugandan Judges (Most Ugandan judges are agains the Legal Guardianship that allows us to adopt. In some ways, it is easier to adopt internationally than it is to adopt domestically in Uganda and that makes. This is frustrating for Ugandan judges. We also imagine it makes them feel disrespected that outsiders have found a loophole in their laws)

2. A meeting with the Ministry of Gender (The goal of the Ministry of Gender is to create a better standard of living, equity and social cohesion, especially for poor and vulnerable groups in Uganda. Basically, one of their jobs is to care for orphans! They are in their context finding what they think is in the best interest of orphans.)

Most importantly pray that these meetings will give necessary answers to help our agency make a difficult decision. Pray for clarity and quality communication between our agency and who they meet with. Pray for wisdom for our agency as they hear information and then try to sort out the validity of the information.
