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!

Both Hands

Our Both Hands project 2 weeks from today, we've been busy preparing, getting donations, taking pictures and measurements to bless sweet Greer. We can't wait to tangibly bless her in this way!



We've assembled our team and spent multiple Saturdays at Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware and True Value seeking donations, we'd appreciate your prayers that these stores are willing to partner with us!

Our Both Hands page is up and running and we have our letter sending party tonight!! We've already seen God's blessing on our project in many ways. We had all our colored copy letters printed...600 of them for free! Two local shops agreed to split the cost. Both mentioned business is slow but were still happy to partner with us saving us hundreds of dollars in printing!

We had another Both Hands family send us 200 envelopes and stuffing envelopes they had left over from their project. They sent it as their support for our project and saved us money as well!!



Today we went to Costco to buy the stamps for all the letters knowing this would be one of our biggest expenses. A couple weeks ago we got our year end dividend in the mail and we used a gift card we had received months ago and only had to pay for about 1/3 of the cost out of pocket. God knew three years ago when we originally signed up that this check, at the end of summer would help offset the cost of our project. And God knew we would get the gift card last Christmas and not know what to spend it on until today!


It's been such a blessing to see God work in the details of this project and our adoption! We'd appreciate your prayer as we prepare for and serve Ms. Greer!
