Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family. Adoption has been the most tremendous gift in our life, and words cannot express how much we admire the strength that you have to consider such an enormous decision. We want to be respectful of your choices and let you know that we are just humbled that you are taking the time to let us introduce ourselves.
Our names are Megan & Bill, & we became parents to our sweet son, Gus, through adoption in 2016. We are so excited and ready to grow our family through adoption. Family is the most important thing to us, and we know that we have so much love to share. We both come from big families with brothers & sisters, and we want Gus to have those same strong sibling bonds.
We both went to the same college but met through mutual friends shortly after graduation about 13 years ago, and we have been married for 6 of those years. We love spending time with our family & friends, taking Gus and our dog, Tyler, for walks or to the park – or just for adventures in our backyard. We both love learning and we cannot wait to instill that curiosity for the world around us in our children through visiting new people and places.
About Bill (by Megan)
After just our first date, I realized that Bill was like no one else that I had ever met. He is passionate & dedicated to his work, but is also so easy going & fun when he clocks out at the end of the day. Gus cannot get enough of his Dada. They play, chase & laugh so hard that they wear each other out. Bill loves sports and is always highly competitive when it comes to board games.He also takes pride in work on projects around the house and in the yard. Bill runs a well-established IT company where he started out as an employee more than 15 years ago & is now the President /Owner.
About Megan (by Bill)
Megan loves to laugh & has the greatest sense of humor I have ever encountered. She is also a great listener & has a tremendous amount of patience & calm in reserve which you can never have too much of with a rambunctious toddler. Megan has a Bachelor’s Degree in English, & remains an avid reader. Gus is already a budding bookworm, too – they will read book after book together! Megan loves arts & crafts — especially knitting. She has practically made a zoo of lovable creatures for the kids in our life.Megan has a great full-time job in marketing at a Fortune 500 company. We are thrilled that her work offers onsite daycare & flexible scheduling so that we can make the most of our time at work & at home with Gus.
Gus is one of the happiest, silliest, & sweetest little boys around. He loves dancing, playing outside, blowing kisses, reading books, and generally making everyone laugh. He loves spending time with his 2 cousins that are very close in age, and is always so sweet with his baby cousin. We just know that he will be such a fantastic big brother.
Our Dog, Tyler
We rescued our dog, Tyler, when he was just a few months old. For the first few years he had the energy of a puppy, and could run as fast (if not faster) as any dog in the dog park. Now that he is closing in on 12 years old, he mostly likes to nap and eat. Gus & Tyler are best buds, and we have even nicknamed Tyler “The Baby Monitor,” because he always lets us know that Gus is up before we can hear it on the monitor.
We live on a quiet street in a great school district in our city. We have a big backyard that backs up to woods and we love spotting deer, bunnies and other animals out our back window with Gus. We have an in-ground pool and great patio that has made our backyard pretty popular in warm weather, and we love having friends and family over to help us relax and enjoy our free time. We have a very strong network of friends and family that is beyond ready to support & love our growing family.
What Adoption Means to Us
Our children will be surrounded by love & laughter, and we will make sure that your love is always part of that story. We are grateful every day for the absolute love and trust that our son’s Birthmother & Grandmother have instilled in us, and we are committed to keeping the open communication that we have established. We are very open to all backgrounds and comfortable with openness in adoption, and happy to talk about what feels right for you.
