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 3: Open Doors

As previously mentioned, Uganda is frustrated with the way that adoptions are taking place. For some judges, it has gotten to the place where they do not support international adoptions at all and rule that way in court. In some ways, our agency is working to repair relationships and to show the judges and other officials, that they want what is in the best interest of the child and Uganda.  Unfortunately, they are walking an uphill road but Ugandans are as a whole, very relational.

Today please pray for:
A continued open door into the conversations surrounding adoptions and orphan care in Uganda.

Pray that everyone attending the meetings is focused on the orphan, poor and vulnerable.

Pray all meetings can be solely about them and their best interest. Both parties want to care well for orphans.

Pray that they can begin on this common ground and work positively together from there.

Pray for a deepening of trust and relationships and a blending of ideas and concern that is focused on orphans.

From our point of view, they are discussing our child/children and what is in the best interest of them. When we are praying there is a deep understanding that this affects the future of not only adoptions but our child! The relationships being formed and deepened affects us but more importantly it affects our child!! Please join us in praying for WIDE OPEN DOORS!!!!
