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!

It's a....

Girl!! 
1 sweet, little 2 year old!!

We have named her "N" Margaret Negrete. We aren't sharing her first name privately because we've decided to keep her birth name. Margaret is my paternal grandma's name. She passed away last March. Margaret means "Pearl" and Uganda is known as the Pearl of Africa!!

Here is what we already know about her:

She was born only 25 day before we began our adoption process, she's been here all that time!!

She was placed in the orphanage at 2 days old and has spent her entire life in the same orphanage.

She has the chubbiest cheeks and sweet Buddha belly.

She has great expressive eyebrows that may kill us when she's a teenager. (Chris: the first time I get those eyebrows, I'm just going to melt even though she'll be mad at me)

She has awesome hair, you should see her 4 month picture.

We have a newborn, 4month, around 1 year, 18month and recent 2 year old pictures. It's rare to be have so many!

According to her referral she "is a joyous child, who sleeps well and is liked by everyone."

Chris is praying she likes fish (I hate fish), so he can take her on sushi dates!

Friends, she is amazing, we are head over heals in love with her! It was completely love at first sight, we are enamored! We can't share pictures on any sort of social media but we will gladly show her off if you ever see us in person. Just ask, we're more than happy to brag on her!
