Ryan & Megan

Thank you for taking the time to look into our lives to see if we would be a good fit for you and the little one you carry.   Honestly, this is a very difficult letter to write.  What do we say to someone we have never met before?  Especially when we know that you are experiencing so many emotions, difficult decisions, and an uncertain future.  You are facing choices that we have never been faced with.  Please know that we pray for you.  As we pray about the future of our own family, you are a part of that in some way.  We pray for the child that you are carrying.  We pray that God would give you wisdom and guidance to make the best decisions for you and for the baby.

 We talked about adoption even before we were married, and that desire has grown in both of us over the past year or two.  We see this as a beautiful picture of what Christ has done for His children – grafting them into His own family tree.  We trust in the sovereignty of God and believe that whatever the outcome, we can trust that His will is good for us.  We pray that you will take comfort in these things as well while you make these tough decisions.  All of our family members and friends are so excited to see our family grow! They have been praying for us but they have also been praying for you.

 We look forward to what the Lord has planned for the future!

 May God bless you,   Ryan and Megan

Married since 2013

Reside in Virginia

Ryan’s Occupation:  Electrical Engineer

Megan’s Occupation:  Administrative Assistant/Homemaker

About Us:  Ryan is outgoing, hard-working and scientifically-minded. He also loves sports of all types (both playing them and watching them). Megan is quiet, empathizing, hard-working and artistic. She loves home décor – especially shopping for it. As a couple, we complement each other very well – Ryan’s strengths are Megan’s weaknesses, and vice-versa. Even though we are very different in some ways, we really enjoy being together. We both have the same ultimate goal in life – to finish our Christian walk well and to spend eternity in Christ’s presence. We also both desire very much to raise children in a solid Christian environment, and we both want to do this through adoption, as it pictures God’s adoption of us into His family. We very much look forward to providing a wonderful home for a beautiful child!
