Hello, and welcome to our profile page! I'm Meaghan, my husband is David, and we are so glad that you've taken the time to peek at our profile. We hope that our photos make you smile (and it's totally ok if you laugh at some of what you see - we certainly do!) and that you leave here feeling like you've gotten to know a bit about us. As we've entered the adoption triad, we've found that one of greatest areas of uncertainty in the whole process is the relationships. If you're an expectant mom considering adoption, it must be overwhelming to look through photos of couples and families, not sure what to expect from any of them. Hopefully this profile page offers you a glimpse into who we are and that what you see erases some of the uncertainty.
So far, 2020 has been a "typical" year for us. We both work for school districts, David in district communications and myself as a teacher (different school districts) so we're working our way through what I consider the long semester (few breaks, lots going on at the schools). In February, I took a sudden break from teaching to fly to Florida and visit my parents while my dad was briefly in the hospital, but other than that, we've been rolling through our routine. Now that it's March, we're closing in on Spring Break - David and I share the same week off - and a trip to visit David's family who live just a few hours away in another part of Texas. We're looking forward to catching up with them since we haven't seen them since Thanksgiving and to watching our nephew play baseball (he's a high school senior). Then we'll return home and watch the first couple rounds of the NCAA basketball tournament - we're both HUGE sports fans - before heading back to work towards the end of the month. We both love our jobs, but we're looking forward to a bit of a break!
As for what we have in mind for this space, like I said earlier, we want this to be a place where you can get to know us as you consider what I believe to be an incredibly difficult decision. We'll be posting photos from Spring Break and other events we have coming up and are aiming to post updates each month on what we're up to, giving you an honest look at each season of our life together. Know that as you mull over your options, we are praying for you and the decision you are making for yourself and the child you clearly love.
