Kiet & Meghan
We are honored that you have taken the time to consider us as parents for your child. Adoption has been a blessing, a way to give us a child that otherwise we would not be able to have. We adopted our son in 2016 and we cannot wait to grow our family and provide a sibling for our son. We are excited and will cherish taking this special journey.
Our Most Memorable Moment
Our most memorable moment was when our son was born. We received the call that our birth mother's water broke and we quickly packed our bags and drove 3.5 hours to the hospital. We arrived at the hospital around 11 p.m. on a Tuesday and were placed in a birthing suite next to our birth mother and anxiously awaited his arrival. Shortly after we settled into the suite we heard a knock on our door and it was the birth mother's grandmother who introduced herself and gave us a brief update. Finally around 7 a.m. a nurse walked in and told us everything with the birth went great and asked us if we wanted to meet our son! He had been born around 5 a.m. and we were blessed to be able to meet him within a few hours after his birth. We entered the room where we met the birth mother and some of her family along with our son. At the time we had chosen two "boy" names, but we quickly settled on Grayson after we saw him. Just as the first day we met him we fell in love and have loved him unconditionally every day since. We have written letters and sent many pictures to Grayson's birth mother in the few years since he was born. We have also purchased a few children's books which have an adoption storyline which we regularly read to Grayson. We plan to share his adoption journey with him sooner than later.
Our Leisure Time
We have many interests as a couple/family, but mainly we just enjoy spending time together. Since we met at the gym, fitness is an important part of our lives, whether it's kickboxing, biking, running or going on long walks with our family. We enjoy taking long weekend trips and in addition love traveling to new places. We enjoy taking our son to the zoo, beach and park. We consider ourselves "foodies" who enjoy trying new restaurants and cooking meals from scratch.
Besides spending time enjoying interests as a couple/family, we also have many individual interests. Meghan enjoys entertaining and party planning and has loved planning "theme" birthday parties for our son. Meghan also enjoys baking and every year she has a tradition of making Concord grape pies with her mom and baking Christmas cookies with her dad. Aside from baking and entertaining, she also enjoys doing barre fitness. Kiet enjoys playing tennis, basketball and taking short and long motorcycle trips with his brothers. Kiet also enjoys fixing cars and motorcycles.
Meghan's parents own a lake house in northern Wisconsin, which has been a wonderful place for our family to spend time together boating, swimming, and fishing. We go to the lake house all year round so we enjoy summer and winter activities and everything in between.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Meghan About Kiet: I was attracted initially to his smile but found Kiet to be very genuine and such a gentleman. He is one of the hardest working people I know. Kiet has a great sense of humor and a very laid back attitude. The way Kiet loves his mother is so endearing and she has helped to shape the man he is today. Kiet makes me a better person and loves me unconditionally. He is very loyal and truly my best friend.
Kiet About Meghan: I was immediately attracted to her single dimpled smile! Once we started talking outside of the gym, I was attracted to her laugh and the fact that she seemed very well grounded, driven and close to her family. She also has a tremendous heart. She would do anything for her family and friends. She is constantly putting others ahead of herself, which I have only seen grow with each day as Grayson grows.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in the suburbs in a newly constructed two story, Craftsman style home in Wisconsin. All of the bedrooms are located on the second floor while the living room and playroom are located on the first floor. We have an open floor plan layout which allows for the kitchen to open into the morning room and family room which has a fireplace. We spend a lot of time in our kitchen/living room/morning room area since all rooms are next to one another and make for one bigger living space.
Our neighborhood is made up of many younger families with kids and empty nesters. On summer nights a lot of neighbors walk the neighborhood or kids are playing outside together. There is a community pool in our neighborhood which is a two-block walk from our house and there are numerous parks which are a few minutes drive away as well. We are within minutes from shopping, boutiques and restaurants and a 5-10 minute drive to the elementary, middle and high schools.
Our Extended Families
We are fortunate to have a majority of our immediate family within a five hour or less drive from us. Our family has been very supportive of our decision to adopt and are very excited for us to continue this journey of ours to grow our family.
Meghan's parents live within 15 minutes of us and she is very close to her parents. Meghan is the youngest of three children with two older brothers who are both married and have children of their own. We enjoy family dinners, birthday parties and spending holidays together. Every Christmas, Meghan attends the Nutcracker ballet with her mom and cannot wait to start sharing that with her children someday. Meghan makes Christmas cookies with her dad every Christmas and now it's become a tradition with our son as well. Meghan's parents have a lake home two hours from our home, which has been a great vacation spot for boating, fishing and making s'mores around the bonfire with our son.
Unfortunately, Kiet's father passed away when he was very young, but he is extremely close with his mother who lives 5 hours away who we visit often. Kiet is the youngest of four boys. Kiet's oldest two brothers are married and have two nephews and a niece between them. We visit with his second oldest brother and his family several times a year. Every summer, Kiet and his older brothers go on a motorcycle trip across some part of the US and/or Canada.
From Us to You
We are Kiet and Meghan and we have been together for nine years, married for five. We realize that even though this will result in one of the happiest times in our lives, that it will be one of the most difficult for you. We are honored and humbled that you are considering us to be parents for your child. We can only imagine what you are going through and what an important, selfless and brave decision this is for you.
We knew we wanted to have children since before we were married and when we found out that we could not conceive, the decision to adopt was not even a question. We adopted our son in 2016 and it has been the biggest blessing. Adoption gave us a way to have a child that otherwise we would not have been able to have. We hope that we can provide you with more than a glimpse into our lives and impart onto you a confident, comfortable and genuine feeling that your child will be unconditionally loved by not only our family, but by grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends. We have always wanted more than one child, so this is our way of growing our family and giving our son a sibling for our child to grow up with. Through periodic pictures and letters, we will dedicate sharing the love we have for this child with you.
We enjoy entertaining and cooking together so there will be lots of family dinners with friends and family in the child's life. We strongly believe in education, but will also provide outlets for creativity and passion in the child's life so that they will become their own individual. We hope to expose the child to many adventures and everything that life has to offer, whether it's traveling, going to art and science museums, long weekends at our family's lake house, or trying new ethnic foods. We will give our child a safe and secure home, lots of laughter, but most importantly a home filled with unconditional love.
We realize that this is not an easy decision for you as there are many wonderful people wanting to adopt just as much as we do. Even prior to our adoption journey we have learned that life is too precious and we try to take advantage of everything that it has to offer, whether it's spending time with family and friends, traveling to new and old places, exploring new adventures or just spending time together with each other and our dog. We have learned to celebrate all the small and large things life gives us. Entrusting and believing in us as adoptive parents is something we will celebrate each day as we greet our child every morning to the time the last book is read before bedtime.
Your child will always know their birth story and the person that brought them into this world was selfless and courageous to give us the best gift in life. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and considering us as parents for your child. Please know as you are making this most difficult and admirable consideration of adoption for your child, that our arms and hearts are open to loving this child more than life itself and he or she will be the center of our world. With so much love to give, we are excited and anxious to grow our family!
