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!

Paper Pregnant!

We've spent a few days in Phoenix with family  which was agonizing not knowing if our I-600 A was sitting in the mail box. Chris went home yesterday and it had arrived!!

As of today we are officially paper pregnant!! 

We emailed it off to our adoption agency and they emailed back and we are #11 on the wait list.

#11

This number can fluctuate a bit depending on what family is best fit for the child/children. Things may quiet down a bit as we enter into a season of waiting. The only thing we are going to need to do between now and accepting a referral is to keep our home study, biometrics and I-600a current...none of which needs to be done in the next 18 months. We will keep updating as we move up the wait list but we would love prayer as we prepare to bring our child home!

We have also set up an adopt together account. Any money donated to here will go directly to our agency and adoption expenses. It is also tax deductible!

  1. Yay! Paper pregnant is a great feeling. A feeling most people don't get, a feeling you will surely be tired of by the time you bring home your little one. But none the less, a great feeling! Congratulations.
