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!

Yard Sale!!

We had our yard sale today and last weekend. Thank you so much to everyone who donated items and came to help out! I completely forgot to take pictures last week but got a couple today.

I created a board about Uganda/Adoption and displayed pictures from Uganda. Many people wanted to know more after seeing the board. My favorite interaction was from a couple who came today. The husband was explaining to her what she had read and he asked "You're adopting from Uganda." The wife replied "No, no one would do that. They're just sending money." Made me chuckle a bit but then I go to share our heart for Uganda and the amazing people.

Is it a bit "school project?"...yes. Does it scream "I'm a teacher?"...Yes! But it did what it was intended to do and spread our story!!

I also found another use for our announcement sign. We also gave out our adoption announcements. One woman took one and said she would put it on her fridge to remember to pray for us! We so desperately need prayer!!
We are so blessed by our community entering in to donate items, help us run the sale and purchase items. Slowly by Slowly pieces fall into place. Our goal in all of it is to bring glory to God. We prayed for weeks that we could minister to people through our story and our heart for the fatherless. Please continue to pray that the people who heard our story will know their own adoption in Christ!

So...you want to know how much we made?!? A whopping $404.25!!!!! We are blown away and so so so thankful! 

*****Our adoption agency will be going to Uganda on Thursday to meet with stakeholders in Ugandan international adoptions and to determine if ethical adoptions can take place. We will be posting daily prayer requests to help focus on major meetings and issues they will be evaluating. We are so thankful for an agency who is committed to protecting the most vulnerable.********
