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!

Grant Update

This has been a bittersweet week in our home. Last Saturday I got a call from my mom saying my grandma may not make it through the night. She was 91 and had been battling cancer for a year but suddenly took a turn. Over Christmas, I was able to spend time with her and I left knowing it would probably be the last time I saw her. We spent 5 days waiting for her to meet Jesus. Each day seemed like her last but she held on, saying goodbye to dear friends and family.

On Wednesday morning I got a call from Lifesong regarding our grant application. Before I could call back my dad text me, "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. II Cor. 5:8-mom is with the Lord." I gave my students extra recess as I took some time to be alone and grieve and rejoice her passing.

After I gathered myself, I called Lifesong back knowing the call would hold encouraging news.  We have been awarded a $4,000 direct grant!! What a huge blessing from the Lord! We are so grateful for this gift and how much closer it brings us to our forever family.

We have also been selected to participate in a Both Hands project which we will complete this summer. We will be gathering a team to bless a widow while raising funds to bring our orphan(s) home! I've wanted to do a Both Hands project since before we began our adoption. They operate off of the verse James 1:27 "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." You can watch more of the story of how Both Hands came about here.

Thanks for walking this long journey with us!!
