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.
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.
With love in our hearts,
Megan and Evan
