From Us to You

Thank you for giving us the time to introduce ourselves. We are Megan and Evan. We are high school sweethearts, and have been together for over 12 years and married for over 6 of those years. Adoption is something that is very close to our family because Megan was adopted as a newborn. In Megan’s extended family, her god brother is also adopted. In Evan’s extended family he has a cousin who was adopted, and he also has a childhood friend who was adopted. Adoption has been a part of both of our lives since childhood. We always knew we would want to adopt eventually. We had planned to have a biological child and tried for many years, only to find out that dream would probably not ever come true. At that exact moment we both knew that adoption was what was meant to be.

We are very family oriented and are close with both sides of our family. Family gatherings happen quite often and we can’t wait to share them with your child. We want everything and more for them, and we want you to know they will live the best life we can give.

Education is very important to us so know that your child will have the best education we can offer. We will give your child the opportunity to express themselves in any way they desire. In our case, one of us is an artist and the other is an engineer. We want your child to be whatever they want to be in life and will encourage and support them to pursue whatever that dream is.

Your child will experience as much of the world as we did growing up. We love to travel and we can’t wait to share that with your child. Our home is a very laid back place and we always like to stop and appreciate the little things in life and what brought us to where we are now.

With Megan being an adoptee, when she was growing up, there were times that were hard with questions that needed answers. Many of them were questions about her identity. We want you to know that Megan has been in your child’s shoes and knows how it all feels. Everyone is different and every story plays out differently, but all those raw emotions are real and valid. We will guide your child through all these ups and downs and be there whenever they need us.

With love in our hearts,
Megan and Evan

Why We're Choosing to Adopt

Megan was adopted and she always knew from a very young age that she wanted to adopt at some time. Evan felt the same way even before we were married. We tried for two years to conceive and were not able to and after a couple of years of doctor appointments and surgery, our doctor told us that, because of Megan’s endometriosis, it would be very hard to become pregnant. We knew at that time that adoption was the path we were meant to take the whole time. We know that adoption is where we are meant to be.

About Evan, from Megan

I would describe Evan as the most hard working person I know. He’s incredibly smart and so loving. He has a very gentle personality. Evan has the biggest heart and is passionate about the things he loves. He is constantly trying to improve himself in any way possible. He is inspiring and I have always looked up to him. I could see him easily being your child’s role model someday. He has played hockey his whole life and still does every Sunday. He is also a professional powerlifter. He’s always pushing himself to improve in everything he does.

About Megan, from Evan

I have never met anyone else like Megan. She has always put others first, especially when it comes to family. She is the least selfish person I know because she always wants those around her to have a smile. She is very loving, caring, and thoughtful. It is very difficult to describe her personality with words because her personality is in her actions. She is also the creative half in our family through her artwork, designing, and ability to think outside the box. Through the years we have been together, I have always known she would be an amazing mother. She has the gentle heart to make sure your child receives all the love and nurturing she can give. I really can’t explain through words how incredible she is as a person, daughter, wife, and future mother.

Our Home

We just bought and moved into Evan’s childhood home in Texas at the beginning of 2022. It is a two-story, five-bedroom, brick house in a cul-de-sac that is often filled with our many neighbors’ children’s laughter.

We already have a room that we have designated as your baby’s room, and we are slowly getting the smaller things together for the nursery. With our house being somewhat of an open concept, we will always be able to keep an eye on them but also they will have so much room to run around and play. One of our favorite parts of our house is the large upstairs game room that’s ready to be filled with toys. Another fun space is the large backyard that has a covered and enclosed patio. We are often out there playing fetch with our dog, Ariel. Even with the covered patio and extended patio there’s still plenty of grass to play on and possibly for a treehouse one day!

Both of us grew up in this neighborhood and it has a community pool, basketball court, tennis court, and playground. There are always families and children out and about through the neighborhood.

Our Sweet Pets

We have two pets, one cat and one dog. Our cat’s name is Vader and he is a Devon Rex. Vader is a hypoallergenic cat, so his fur almost feels like a super soft microfiber cloth. He acts more like a dog trapped in a cat body and is so loving. Ariel is our medium size Lab mix who is one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. She is so gentle and we joke that she’s our little shadow because she has to be in the same room as us at all times. They both get along very well with one another and both will greet anyone who comes through our front door.

Our Families

Family plays a big role in our lives and we both have very large extended families. Everyone is already so excited to welcome our newest addition and can’t wait for it to happen. Megan is an only child while Evan has an older sister who is engaged and is getting married in January of 2023! She lives only an hour away and they are already planning to have many children, so your child will be able to grow up with children around their age.

We live just two streets down from Megan’s parents. We often see them, so your child will be close to family. Both of our parents have been married for over 30 years, and are actually best friends with one another. Holidays, especially Christmas, are always spent with our entire family and continues to be a tradition. Our friends all live in different states, but we meet up at any time they are in town or we are near them.

How We Met

We first met and fell in love in high school, and after more than 12 years of being together and being married for over 6 of those years, we are still best friends. We actually lived two streets down from each other and didn’t realize it until we started dating. Our parents quickly became friends and we all became inseparable. It didn’t take long for us to realize we were soul mates and meant to be.

Our Lifestyle

Our lifestyle is very laid back but also has a great structure. We make time for ourselves and our family. Evan works every week, Monday through Thursday in the office and Fridays from home. Megan works from home, and will be a stay-at-home mom. We both love to cook and bake, so know that your child’s belly will always be full. We go out to eat with our parents often and plan on keeping that a little tradition. We will always make time to watch different TV shows that we are interested in at the time or watch a movie almost every weekend. We are constantly finding new things to do together.

Family Traditions

We love our traditions no matter how large or small they are. Family traditions are most important to us, such as family gatherings and holidays. One example is decorating the Christmas tree every year, which was a very big deal to both of us growing up so we have continued that tradition in our own home. On Megan’s side of the family, every Christmas each family brings their favorite dish or desert. We also all play family poker with everyone at the end of the night and gamble with candy and snacks. On Evan’s side, we almost always go crawfishing on his grandparents’ crawfish farm. It’s a bit messier than most traditions but it teaches hard work and reward. Taking your child on the crawfish boat and letting them experience something not very many others have is something we look forward to.

We often go to the same Tex-Mex restaurant with our parents. This is always a great time to catch up on our busy lives and take a moment to enjoy everyone’s company.

When I, Megan, was younger and our family went on vacations, we would always look to see if there was an aquarium we could visit. We started ranking them over the years and the one in Monterey California was our favorite. We’re looking forward to playing this game with your child and seeing if that’s their favorite one too!

Vacations and Leisure Time

We love to travel and go on adventures! We have been on many different vacations in the time we have been together, some by ourselves and some with our family. The vacations with our family are some of our most memorable. We can’t wait to show your child the world that we have seen. We have checked off a couple of things on our bucket list over the years. One of our favorites was seeing the famous Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. We had always wanted to visit Jamaica and we were blessed with the opportunity to see the beautiful island and experience their amazing culture a couple of years ago. Understanding, respecting, and seeing other cultures is something that we want to teach your child. Another vacation that we went on recently was to Disney and Universal Studios in Florida. All of the Disney parks are magical places that we are so excited to share with our newest addition. We want your child to have their own bucket list someday that we can check off together.

At home, Megan loves to spend her time taking care of her many house plants and playing with our dog and cat. She is always looking for new additions to her “plant family.” Evan likes to spend his free time working out in his home gym and training for upcoming powerlifting meets.

Our Promise to You

As your child grows older, we will tell them their story and all about you. They will know who they are and where they came from, their identity. They will know and understand how amazing you truly are and what led them into our lives. We are so grateful for your choice to choose adoption for your child and we will care for and shower them with love forever. You are so incredibly brave and we know your decision was not taken lightly and it will never be taken for granted. Always know that you are loved and appreciated every day. We can never thank you enough for everything you have done and been through but a simple “thank you” will never be enough to express our appreciation towards you. You will always have a place in our hearts and in your child’s heart.
