A Letter from Joshua & Megan

Hello from Oregon! We’re excited to grow our family through adoption again! Adoption is already a big part of our family; we adopted our daughter, Joshua was adopted, as were his siblings, and Megan’s own father and other relatives were adopted too. We have always felt called to adopt, even before learning we were unable to have children.

We are an active couple, with a big loving family, and we’re are ready to adopt a boy or girl of any racial background. We look forward to getting to know you, if you’re comfortable. Thank you, so much, for considering us as adoptive parents for your baby.

As parents, we look forward to sharing big family holidays and our annual vacation to the coast where we rent a big house for the whole family to enjoy the beach together. We also look forward to starting new traditions and sharing our love for serving others. We attend church regularly where Megan is a part of the worship team. Joshua also mentors a couple kids in our community, and helps to fundraise for missionaries overseas.

Our Family

We adopted our daughter, Grace, as a newborn and it has been amazing becoming parents together! It’s been a blessing to do bedtime stories and watch her grow and learn so fast. We love it all, and the process of adopting our daughter strengthened our relationship and faith. One day we hope to have more connection with Grace’s birth mother, but for now we keep in touch with her birth grandparents, and even have visits when we can.

We have a big, loud, and fun family, who live locally and across the state. We also have 15 nieces and nephews who are excited to welcome a new cousin. Our family loves getting together and traveling to see each other!

Our Home in Oregon

We live in a 4 bedroom house, with a large yard, surrounded by many acres of alfalfa fields, on which Joshua works on a hay farm. We’ve also enjoyed preparing the nursery! We love living on a farm, with so much to explore nearby. It will be great to raise a family here!

There are many wildlife parks to hike and streams to fish nearby. Our home is in central Oregon, and we love living close to our family, the quietness of the outdoors, and our caring farming community.

Our Promise

We promise to raise your child to be a person of strong faith, to love him or her unconditionally, and to become confident in who they are as individuals. We will teach him or her to love and serve others by our example, and to offer your child the best life we can, while also teaching the value of hard work. We promise to share our family’s adoption story as this child grows up, and to talk about how special you are to us.

We will honor your comfort level about how much contact you’d like after the adoption. If you’d like, we would be honored to learn more about you and the hopes you have for your child. Please contact Lifetime with any questions about us, or to set up a phone or video call to get to know us better: Call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

Very thoughtfully, Joshua and Megan

Adoption in our family

We know first-hand how special adoption is because much of our family was adopted! Joshua is one of 11 children who were all adopted, and Megan’s father, uncle, aunt, and cousin were adopted as well. And of course, so close to our hearts is the recent adoption of our daughter. We are excited to continue growing our family through adoption!

Pets

We have two dogs who love people and are great with kids; Zaza, our Blue Healer-Border Collie mix, loves to chase tennis balls and go to work with Joshua, and Roscoe loves pets and cuddles from anyone. We also have one cat and two cows!
