Shaun & Meagan
We truly believe that there exists a love filled home for every life created, and we know that is the case for you as well because you are offering families the ability to be whole. Being the parents to your child would be our greatest honor and honestly our life's joy. Thank you for considering us for this immense gift.
What it Means to be Parents
Being a parent is the greatest gift and biggest adventure in life. We are very blessed to have the opportunity to provide a loving home for a child. To us, raising this baby will be the greatest adventure we have embarked upon yet and we understand that our lives will never be the same.
Meagan is looking forward to every moment with the new baby. She can't wait to share her love for animals and the garden with this child. Shaun is hoping to share his love of the outdoors with the new baby as he or she grows. He can't wait to take them camping in the forest, teach them to ride a bike and shoot a bow, and take them hiking in the mountains near our home.
Mostly we are both excited to see who this little person becomes and nurture their path in life. We are both beyond excited to witness the first words and first steps of this child that has been entrusted to our care. Sharing our lives, hobbies and leisure activities with a child and building new traditions are joys we look forward to most.
How We Met
We met in 2007 at a mall in Santa Cruz while Shaun was in college. He was walking through the mall to the shoe store he worked at and Meagan spotted him from the store she was running at the time.
Meagan felt immediately drawn to him and told her coworker she needed to know this guy. She asked her coworker to watch the store and walked straight over to introduce herself, telling him he should come to her store and let her dress him. Shaun was impressed by her directness and playful nature and came into her store that day to ask her out on our first date.
As fate would have it, Meagan's dad was in town that weekend for a visit, so Shaun got to meet her father before our first date while waiting outside her door with a bouquet of flowers.
Why We Chose Adoption
Meagan has always wanted to be a mom and we as a couple have always wanted a family. However, about 5 years ago we found out that Meagan has Lupus. Fortunately, Meagan has worked with her doctors and has the Lupus under control, but in the process Meagan lost the ability to have children. This was a major loss for her and for us as a couple, but we felt that it was the safest path and hoped that we could fulfill our desire to be parents another way.
The medical issues did not deter our desire for children. Soon after Meagan was back on her feet, we started researching our options to complete our family, and after weighing the different opportunities we decided that adoption would be the best choice.
We are firm believers that sometimes bad things happen for a reason, and we hope that while our family will not be created by the means we had originally planned, it will be the family we were meant for.
Our Extended Families
We are both lucky to have family live nearby. Meagan's father lives just an hour away, and her mother lives a short three hours away. Shaun's mother lives in San Diego, CA and is retiring this upcoming year. She is very excited to be able to spend lots of time visiting her new grandchild. Shaun's father also lives in the San Diego area and we visit a few times per year.
Whenever friends and family come over to visit, we usually hang out in the garden and watch the kids play in the yard or with the animals. We also enjoy having BBQ's with our friends and their kids since we have a good bit of space for the kids to play. When we are not in the yard, we love to play board games with our family and friends.
For the holidays we usually go to visit family members. However, with a new baby, we would likely begin a new tradition of hosting family gatherings at our house.
Our House and Neighborhood
Our home is a classic southwest style ranch, three-bedroom home sitting on just slightly over one acre of land with over 50 fruit trees. We also have a chicken coop where we house and care for approximately 40 hens. We are slowly building up our little farm to be able to sustain our family and our yard is a great joy to us.
There is a multi-acre brand new regional park being built in our neighborhood that will have a splash pad area for the children during the hot months, and trails to stroll and bike along during the cooler ones. There are also many smaller community parks throughout the surrounding neighborhoods that offer playgrounds.
Our neighborhood is in an extremely family-oriented area. There are many families that live in our area with children ranging from toddler age to teenagers. The school bus stop is right next to our home and the kids ride quads or bikes to the stop in the morning, then park their gear for the day next to the street. In the early evenings you can usually find kids riding down the street on foot, bikes or quads, or even people walking or riding their horses.
The surrounding community includes farms and parks that host events such as corn mazes and hay rides, rodeos, kid’s camps, and concerts. We look forward to sharing our home and community with a child.
From Us to You
First, we would like to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child. We are immensely grateful and have deep respect for you for considering this option, it is the most selfless thing you could possibly do.
We are a stable, loving, and committed couple. We have been together for a decade and married for 5 years. During that time we traveled the country and handled deployments and the rigors of military life, transitioned out of the military and settled in Arizona. Our relationship is built on a solid foundation of friendship, laughter, and love. We want nothing more than to share our lives, love and a whole lot of laughter with your child.
Our entire family is incredibly supportive of our decision to adopt and are anxiously awaiting their new family member. Both of our parents, our cousins, and our large group of close family friends are all excited to meet your child and to be a part of their life.
We want you to know that if you choose us, we will love your baby with all of our hearts. We will provide a stable and loving home and an environment where he or she can grow into their best selves. We are focused on providing a solid moral foundation and faith in God, a musical hobby, a close connection with nature and the outdoors, and a strong educational background to ensure that your child will have every opportunity to discover and successfully pursue whatever they find is their passion.
We believe that family is not only those who are related by blood, but any person who cares about you and is there to support you through thick and thin. Life is full of challenges that can only be overcome by having the support of the people close to you. We are excited for you to have as much of a relationship with us as you want, and be as much of a part of our family as you are comfortable with. This will forever be your child and your story will always be a part of theirs. We want your child to know where they came from and how great of a sacrifice their birth parents made to give them a better life.
Our goal is for you to be proud of the child you brought into this world. We also hope that you will be proud of the decision you made to provide your child with the best environment you could. It is our hope that your child will also be proud and grateful for you and for your decision. We plan to share as much of their life with you as you are comfortable with. We want you to be able to share in the milestones of their life and cheer them on as they travel along their path.
Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to be parents. Having a child is something we have wanted for years and thanks to you our dreams of completing our family will finally come true. There aren't enough words to express how grateful we are to you for giving us this gift.
With much love,
Shaun & Meagan
