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 5: A Humble Heart

There are multiple different viewpoints on international adoption. Some have issue with mixed race, removing a child from their home country, the legality of the adoption, bribes, child stealing....the list goes on and on. But there are even disagreements among two countries working together in international adoption just as there are two sides to every story.

This can and does create conflict. This conflict is where we find ourselves in Ugandan adoption. Although we love Uganda, I lived in Uganda....We are not Ugandan and so we think differently because of our different experiences. The same is true with American adoption agencies and some in the Ugandan government. 

Today would you pray for:
Humble hearts that are willing to hear other viewpoints and to hear God's view of the situation

Pray for respect for all parties involved but the utmost respect and humble heart in hearing from God

Pray the Judges and the Ministry of Gender humbly hear our adoption agency's view on adoption and submit to God's leading in this issue

Pray our agency humbly hears the viewpoint of the Judges and the Ministry of Gender and submit to God's leading in this issue
