Our Adventures

Visiting London

When we met, one of the things that attracted us to each other was our love of adventure. Prior to adopting Evelyn we filled our free time with activities and travel. When we adopted her, we knew that we wanted to continue that lifestyle. We plan to keep living life to the fullest even when we add another child to our home. We feel that kids of all ages can learn through seeing the world.

Our favorite adventure is traveling. Megan grew up going on a trip each year, and Jason studied abroad in Bangkok, Thailand while in college. He has also done some international travel for work.

When we met, we started traveling almost right away. We go on multiple vacations each year and still have only seen a fraction of the world. This has continued since adopting Evelyn. She has already been to several states and to Europe twice. When we travel, our favorite part is getting lost in the city. We enjoy meeting locals, trying new cuisine, learning more about the culture and customs, and having some downtime too. We are thankful to be able to travel and can't wait to continue traveling with our growing family.

Discussing Adoption

4th of July Fun!

Discussing adoption is already a topic in our household because our daughter Evelyn is adopted. We are thankful to have an open adoption with her birth family. When we add another child to our family we will be just as open with him/her about their story and would love an open adoption if that is what is best for the birth family.

We have been openly talking about Evelyn's adoption with her since day one. When we talk about how Evelyn joined our family we talk about how we are so lucky to have her in our lives and that her first parents love her so much and chose adoption. We don't want a day to go by where Evelyn, or our future child feel that they were misled by their story. Megan and Evelyn's birth mom have discussed writing a book together to tell the story of how we adopted Evelyn. We could see writing a book to tell the story of our second child's adoption as well.

We don't know how our children will feel as they grow, but we want them to know that they are loved by all of us. Adoption is a story of love and sacrifice. It is never something that we want our children to feel ashamed about. We know that they will likely have times when they have questions and need space. We don't have all the answers, but we will provide all possible resources to help them feel confident and proud of their identity.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Date Night!

Megan about Jason: I am lucky to be married to Jason. He's supportive, loving and the best dad ever! I appreciate how he is there for his family whenever we need him. He is reliable and takes care of even small things. Jason is a role model for Evelyn and shows her he cares about her with his words and through his actions. I know that he will be an amazing father to another child too! He is detail-oriented and knows how to make Evelyn and I feel celebrated and special. I could honestly go on and on. We are about to celebrate 10 years of marriage and I still can't get enough of him!

Jason about Megan: I definitely married up with Megan! She is fun, smart, compassionate, and an amazing mom! I admire how much she genuinely cares about everyone. She has a special ability to make the best out of life. She is constantly coming up with clever activities to do as a family, from creating travel itineraries, curating family traditions, to finding the best local activities to enjoy. Furthermore, she has a natural ability to keep life fun and interesting. We have almost been married 10 years, and she has shared with me so many values of life. One of the constant values of the utmost importance to Megan is family. She truly loves her family!

Our Extended Families

Family Beach Fun

We feel blessed to both come from tight-knit, fun families. We have deep care and respect for all members of our family. We feel supported by them and love that they are excited about another baby.

Happy Easter!

Jason's parents, as well as his brother's family, all live less than an hour away! We enjoy getting together and watching Evelyn interact with her cousins. They adore Evelyn and can't wait to have another baby around! Jason's mom and sister-in-law both love hosting and we go to their homes for dinner often. They always plan silly games to play or have an activity for everyone to do. Once a year we plan an annual weekend at the Oregon Coast. This is a tradition that has been in Jason's family since he was little.

Most of Megan's family all live less than an hour away. We see them often! Megan's parents come to visit us at least once a week. When they visit, we enjoy going hiking, to the park, the zoo, or to dinner. They have a close relationship with Evelyn and make spending time with her a priority. We also get together a few times a month with Megan's sister's family. Whenever we gather it is always beautiful chaos watching the kids run around and play. Megan's brother lives near Orlando, Florida and we try to visit them at least once a year and vice versa. When we visit we always spend a few days at the beach and at Disney World!

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We feel thankful to live in Oregon. Our house is located in a suburb. We just moved into our home last year. The decision to purchase this house was a great one!

Our neighborhood is incredibly family oriented. People are constantly walking by, out playing catch, biking, or stopping to chat. Many families have young children and we have already met quite a few new friends. Prior to moving in, some of our best friends already lived in the area. A few months ago, some of our other closest friends moved right down the street! Both families have young children and one is pregnant with another on the way! We anticipate lots of neighborhood barbecues, game nights and excitement!

We love our new house! There is room to expand our family, and it is great for hosting guests too. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms plus a playroom. Downstairs we have the main living spaces and an office. In our backyard, we have a play structure and a trampoline. Our favorite rooms are the playroom and the kitchen. We find ourselves hanging out in those spaces most often as a family. 

A new elementary school is being built right down the street! Our neighborhood also has several hiking trails and parks. We don't have a neighborhood pool, but our gym has a pool. We spend many hours there each summer! 

From Us to You

Hi friend,

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We recognize that the decision that you are making is a heavy one and not one that you are taking lightly.

We would like to share a bit from our hearts and tell part of our story. We met in late summer 2010 and were married the following summer in 2011. It is hard to believe that we've been married that long! We honestly love each other much more than we did in 2010 and can easily say that we are each other's best friends. Like anyone else, life has thrown us lemons at times, but through prayer and trusting in God, He has brought us through all challenges we have faced. We feel confident that as parents, we have what it takes to make it through all the obstacles that will surely be thrown our way.

We adopted our incredible daughter Evelyn in 2018. She is filled with joy and is full of life! We are forever grateful to her lovely birth family for the gift they gave us and are blessed to have a beautiful relationship with them.

Our hope is that we will have an open adoption with our second child's birth family as well. We don't know what it is like to go through what you are going through, and we don't know how you feel, but we imagine that you are filled with heartache. If it is us who end up parenting your sweet baby, we want you to know that when (and if) the time is right for you, we would love to have a relationship with you too. We'd love for your child to grow up knowing you. We commit to correspondence with you in any way you prefer. We also commit to planning some in-person visits if you are comfortable. Whatever you choose is best for you and your child. We also want you to know that we have the utmost respect for you, and you are always going to be part of your child's story. When we speak of you, it will be positive and affirming. The choice you are making is brave, honorable and loving. No matter what, that child will know their special adoption story.

One of our goals is that a child raised in our home will never question how important, cared about and loved that they are. We strive to model a devoted marriage through our actions and the way that we speak to each other. We speak to Evelyn respectfully and want for our children to grow up being confident, kind, independent, good humans. We want our kids to feel safe and secure. We want them to know that we will support their dreams and help guide them through life. We want to provide them with a life filled with adventure, attention and positive experiences. We are thankful to have role models in our parents and also a caring support system around us. Raising kids takes a village, and we appreciate all the support we receive! Regardless of whether you select us to parent your precious child or not, we want you to know that we think you are strong and courageous. You know what is best for your baby. We want you to know that you are incredible.

With so much love,

Jason & Megan
