From Us to You

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for taking the time to learn more about us. We could never even begin to know what you’re feeling and going through, but please know that you will never be alone. We haven’t even met yet, but we already admire you for the incredible strength and courage that you have and we will never let that be lost on us or your child. They will always know what an incredible and selfless woman you are because without you, they wouldn’t be here and we wouldn’t have this wonderful chance to complete our family.

As your baby’s parents we promise to provide them with a lifetime of unconditional love, support, guidance and unforgettable memories. They will grow up hearing about their amazing story and know how lucky they are to have known the true meaning of love through us and you. We grew up with so many incredible family memories and we cannot wait to start creating those memories with your child. Whether it’s visiting Meg’s family in New Jersey and taking a trip to the Jersey Shore or playing by the lake in Maine with Andrew’s family during the summer, we are already planning all of the amazing mini trips we’ll take together. We both fondly remember the things we did with our parents that barely cost a dime, but we were together having fun and that was all that mattered.

We don’t know what level of involvement you would like (and we know it may change through the years), but we will always make sure that you know what your child looks like and how they’re doing with updates through the year. We can’t wait to share all their milestones through pictures as well as how their parent-teacher conferences go when they’re older. It may seem silly, but we are even dreaming of all the little things that may seem insignificant. Like a make your own mini pizza night or having hot chocolate after playing in the snow- things that may not seem like much, but hopefully they will look back and realize that those were the best times. They are also going to have so many built in best friends with all the cousins they’ll have! We have lots of nieces and nephews who are so excited to have another playmate at all our family get-togethers. We know how important family is and every single person in our immediate and extended family is ecstatic to have another little one to love.

We also know that religion may be incredibly important to you and while we are both non-practicing (Andrew was raised Methodist and Meg as Catholic), we vow to expose your child to the various religions and fully support whatever they decide. We have a lot of family that still practice and can’t wait to help if needed. Your child would never be alone.

So thank you again for your strength, your courage and, most importantly, for considering us with your most precious gift. We promise to never take that for granted. Our hearts are already overflowing with so much love and we cannot wait to show you and your child the true meaning of love.

Why We're Choosing to Adopt

After we got married we quickly started trying to start our family. We had 2 amazing fur babies, but we knew we wanted a child to complete our home. I (Megan) had a medical issue in my early 20s which resulted in me needing several surgeries. Although I’m fine now, we knew that we would have issues getting pregnant, if we could pregnant at all. After trying for several years with no success and speaking with doctors, we decided it would be much safer for me to not become pregnant. Adoption has never been a backup plan, but something that has always been on our minds. We know we want a family and whether our child is adopted or biological, we know it doesn’t matter- they will be so incredibly loved with all our hearts.

About Andrew, from Megan

There are so many incredible things to say about Andrew that I honestly don’t know where to begin. While we’ve only been together for about 6 years, we’ve amazingly been friends for almost 17 years. His humor, kindness and selfless nature are what drew me to him and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t feel the need to pinch myself to believe that this is real. One of the things I love most about him is that he cherishes his family and would do absolutely anything for them, no matter what. I watch him play with our nieces and his cousin’s children and I know, without a doubt, that he will be an amazing dad. Whether he’s playing in the lake with our nieces or talking about a WWII book with a cousin’s young son, he is there with them and giving them his full attention. And they love him for that! My decision to move from New Jersey to Massachusetts, while scary at first, was 100% the best decision I have ever made and Andrew still thanks me all the time for having that courage. It was only easy because of him – his love, friendship and extraordinary personality have made every second here worth it and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat if I was given the chance.

About Meg, from Andrew

Megan and I have known each other for almost 17 years. For the first 10 years we were just friends, but even then I thought she was the kindest and most caring person I had ever met. Once we started dating I very quickly knew that we were perfect for each other. Everyone in my family immediately fell in love with Megan. She always goes out of her way to keep in touch and check in on all of our friends and family. She loves to spend time with our 3 nieces and my cousin’s kids as well. The kids always get so excited to see her and will compete for her attention. When my dad got sick last spring she was a huge help, not only to me, but to my mom and our whole family. She would drive 4 hours in a day to go meet the hospice nurse so my mom wouldn’t be there alone. She even spoke at my dad’s funeral, which I know was incredibly difficult. I know she has always wanted to be a mom and we are both so excited to grow our family!

Our Home

We LOVE our home! It’s a 4-bedroom Colonial, nestled far back on a corner lot on 1 acre of land in a small town in New Hampshire. We have a large, fenced in backyard that will be perfect for a swing set, sandbox and there’s lots of room to run around and play! Our first floor has a great open concept and we always make sure it’s nice and cozy, especially with our fireplace and comfy chairs. Upstairs we have our bedroom, the nursery, a guest room and our office. We chose a specific room for the baby as we know it’s plenty big enough to give them lots of room as they get older. Our basement isn’t finished yet, but within the next couple years we will have it redone to provide a fun game room and another bedroom as both of our moms plan on visiting A LOT once the baby comes! Aside from our house, our town has amazing schools (the middle and high school are both updated and they are updating the elementary school now so it will definitely be done once your child is ready to go there!), some little shops and a small movie theater. We love living in a small, friendly town, especially when we know that plenty of larger towns and cities are a very short drive away!

Our Sweet Pups

We have two AMAZING pups, Hooper Winters and Brodie Nicks. They were both adopted from the South and are now 5 years old. Hooper was adopted when he was a puppy and is a beagle/lab mix. He protects his home and family with lots of barks, but is a complete softy! He is happiest when he is cuddling by our side with his blankie in his mouth. Brodie is a black lab mix that we got when she was 2 years old. She is a complete lovable, goof who always has a toy hanging out of her mouth while lying on her back waiting for belly rubs. They are both incredible with children and love to see our nieces (ages 9, 7 & 3), especially since they know there will be lots of food being dropped! We honestly couldn’t imagine our lives without them.

Our Families

We are so fortunate to have such amazing and supportive families, especially when it comes to adoption!

Megan, grew up in a small town right outside of Philadelphia and lived in that area until moving up north to be with Andrew. She is one of five children (#4 in the lineup) and lived with her mom, maternal grandparents and siblings in a beautiful, old house. She has two older brothers, an older sister and a younger sister, all of whom she is incredibly close with – especially her little sister. Growing up they were absolute best friends and Meg still can’t imagine her life without her. While we live in different states along the East Coast, we always keep in touch and try to visit with each other as much as possible. We know how much all of her family would love to have a niece or nephew to spoil, especially her mom! She has been waiting for this day since each of us was born!!

Andrew lived in Massachusetts until high school and then his family moved to Southern Maine, where his mom, sister, brother-in-law and 3 nieces still live. Andrew ultimately moved back to Massachusetts for work, but would spend almost all of his free time visiting his family and hanging out by the lake. Though they love seeing us and our pups, we know our 3 nieces cannot wait to have a cousin to play with. I think they’d even be happy with a boy cousin at this point!

In addition to our immediate families, Andrew also has A LOT of extended family that live within 10-30 minutes from us. Every single person is ecstatic about having another baby in the family.

How We Met

We met in 2005 through friends who all gamed (computers) together. We quickly learned that we had so much in common; our sense of humor and love of WWII history were what first drew us in. Our friendship, for the most part, was all virtual as Meg lived in New Jersey and Andrew was in Maine, but that didn’t stop us from growing closer. As the years passed and other relationships failed, it quickly became apparent that there was something besides friendship between us. In 2016 we knew that what we had was special and Megan decided to move up north to take a chance on love. Once we were together there was never any doubt that we were meant to be together. All these years of talking through IM, e-mails, texts and the occasional get togethers had dissolved any awkwardness that usually comes with a new relationship. We can honestly say, without a doubt, that we have an incredible and lifelong love built on a solid foundation of friendship, love and admiration.

Our Lifestyle

While we are definitely homebodies (who doesn’t love relaxing at home, wearing comfy clothes and catching up on your favorite TV show?), we also love to get out with family and friends. A lot of our free time is spent visiting family in either Maine or New Jersey. Depending on the season, our time in Maine could involve taking a boat ride with Andrew’s family or renting a house up north to really enjoy the snow. For the past couple years, we have rented a house for a long weekend and had Andrew’s family stay with us. The weekend is full of eating tons of yummy food, crafts with our nieces, going for a snowmobile ride and just relaxing. When we make the trip to New Jersey, our time is mainly spent just visiting with family and eating all of the amazing food that Meg really misses while in New England. Ever had a Philly cheesesteak?? (Don’t be fooled though, the best one is actually from Donkey’s in South Jersey!) We also love anything historical, especially if it involves WWII, museums, movies, historical sites, etc. We can’t wait to start bringing your child to family visits and exposing them to everything we grew up with from incredible food to outdoor activities. Everything we do would only be made better by having your son or daughter there with us.

Family Traditions

We have A LOT of traditions that we grew up with and we can’t wait to include your child in those and even make lots of new ones with just us!

For the most part, our summer is full of traditions that Andrew grew up with. Growing up on a lake in Maine meant lots of swimming, boat rides and discovering all the creatures that lived in the water. One of their biggest summer traditions is a big lobster (and BBQ) feast on Labor Day weekend. Their family all come over to Andrew’s mom’s house, sit on the deck, take a boat ride, laugh and, of course, eat! That weekend is also full of lots of activities all the families at the lake participate in. There are canoe races, a ski show performed by a kids’ ski team, a boat parade and lots more activities for the whole family. Another tradition that Andrew’s family has is their famous Huffchuff breakfast. Huffchuffs are fried dough with a “healthy” side of their family’s own Maine maple syrup. Since his dad’s death, Andrew has now taken over the role of Huffchuff Master. We can’t wait to hang out at the lake playing with family, going for a boat ride and eating until we need a nap all with our new little one in tow!

As for the winter holidays, we have plenty of traditions there too! We (Andrew, Meg and the pups) always kick off the holiday season by having our Christmas card picture taken on Andrew’s sister’s Christmas Tree Farm. After getting our picture taken, we choose the perfect tree and cut it down to bring home with us. While decorating the tree, we take our time and reminisce on all the memories our past ornaments bring. A big tradition in Megs family that her mom started with her 1st child was that everyone would get a new ornament on Christmas Eve. While she still does this with the whole family, we also exchange an ornament with each other. We love that Megan has a lifetime of memories that we get to relive each year and can’t wait to start this tradition with your child. Another Christmas Eve tradition that Meg had growing up was the “traditional” Chinese food dinner! Whether we’re visiting her family in New Jersey or celebrating on our own in New Hampshire, we still order way too much food and watch “A Christmas Story” on repeat. Then on Christmas morning we do presents, stockings and have eggnog French toast for breakfast. We absolutely love that the entire family still does this whether we’re together or celebrating separately with our own families.

We know we’ll have our own traditions that we’ll create as the years go on with your child, but these ones from our childhood are so incredibly important to also continue and we can’t wait to see your child’s face light up when thinking of them.

Our Careers

Since 2020, we have been the proud owners of a garage door company that we took over from Andrew’s uncle. His uncle started the business in 2006 and with a lot of love and hard work, built it to the incredible business that we were fortunate enough to take over. Andrew’s uncle, unfortunately, didn’t have any children of his own, so when we found out that he was thinking about retiring, we jumped at the chance to take over. Andrew worked hard to learn the business and we became the official new owners in January 2020. Despite having an interesting 1st year (thanks to a pandemic!), we have continued to grow the business to what it is today. Due to our amazing relationship, working together has never been an issue. Andrew does the majority of the manual part of the job (repairs and installations) while Meg works from home doing the office stuff (answering the phone, scheduling and placing orders). We feel so very lucky knowing that our job is incredibly flexible and that Meg will always be home with your child. Hopefully one day we can pass the business down to your child, if they are interested in it!

What We'll Tell Your Child about You

We decided very early on in the adoption process that we would always be very open with our child about where they came from and we would start at a young age. We never want it to be a surprise that they were adopted. We want your child to know that no matter what circumstances surrounded their adoption that they were (and are) so very loved by you. We want them to always know how incredibly lucky they are that they have known the love of two incredible mothers and an amazing dad who all only want the very best for him/her. You will always hold a special place in their heart and ours.

>

Our Promise to You

We promise that your child will never question whether or not they were or are loved by you. They will always know that this incredible decision was made because of the purest form of love: a mother’s love. Every single day of their lives, for the rest of ours, will be full of incredible memories, memories that you helped us make. We will forever be so proud and blessed to be their chosen parents and we will NEVER take that for granted.
