Dear Birthmother,

Dear Expectant Mother,

It is difficult to express in two or three paragraphs the deep and sincere gratitude we feel toward you. We are aware we do not know you yet, but still, we already think you are Wonder Woman. We are in awe of the selflessness and bravery you must have to consider an adoption plan. “It takes a village,” and we are so honored you are considering our village.

So much about raising a child is unpredictable, but we can promise that your baby will have so much love in their life. We promise to share our love of living room dance parties, playing cards with family and friends, and so many more adventures. Because of our strong connections with friends and family, your baby is already loved and supported by so many people. Not only will we love them with everything we’ve got but our entire village is already so excited and ready to meet your baby.

We are also excited to add you to our village! We have every intention of staying connected to you and your family, if you choose. We want your baby to know their own story, and that includes your bravery and love. It is our greatest hope that by combining our love with your love, your baby will have not just a village but a whole city of love and support from the day they are born.


About

About Us

Mehgan is a third grade math and science teacher, and Katie Ann is a social worker/paralegal at a non-profit law firm helping individuals access public benefits. We found each other on a dating app almost five years ago. We quickly became each other’s best friend. We enjoy cooking, going on walks, and impromptu dance parties! Our favorite thing is to make each other laugh. Our friends and family are also very important to us. We have a strong community of people we love and who love us back. We believe the saying, “It takes a village,” is true at every point of a person’s life. Our village is an amazing, diverse, and dependable group of folks we are so thankful for. Our relationship has been built on a foundation of deep respect, constant communication, and a dash of silliness. Our home is full of joy and laughter!

Our Home

We live in a bright and open three-bedroom ranch with a fenced-in backyard in a neighborhood filled with children. We live within walking distance of an elementary school playground. We are excited to take your baby for walks around the neighborhood and to the playground to watch them run around with the other kids. We are also within walking distance to a public library and can’t wait to share our love of books and imagination with your baby by making frequent trips for stacks of books!

Our Extended Family

Mehgan has one older brother who is married with one seven-year-old stepdaughter. Katie Ann has three older siblings who are all married with young children. Your child will have so many cousins to play with! Both of our parents love being grandparents. We are both very close with our families, and they are all so excited to share their love and traditions.

With Katie Ann’s family, summertime is spent playing in the mountains of North Carolina. We are so excited to take your baby on hikes to waterfalls and outdoor cookouts at the lake and to watch them catch fireflies at night with their cousins. Katie Ann’s dad is sure to put on a fantastic firework show every Fourth of July, and almost every night, you can bet there will be a lively game of cards!
With Mehgan’s family, joy, love, and good food are at the center of every family gathering. Mehgan’s mother is always willing to share her recipes and to teach young hands the best way to make true Southern food. Snuggling up on the couch and watching Disney movies is another favorite pastime with Mehgan’s family.


Story

What Led Us To Adoption

Growing up, we always loved children and jumped at opportunities to babysit or to be a camp counselor but were never sure if motherhood was right for us. Then we found each other, and our love grew. We became confident in our desire to share that love with a child. Looking back, we think we have always wanted to adopt but just did not see it as an option before. We are now sure our call to motherhood has always been a call to adopt. We are so excited about growing our family.
