Nick & Megan
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about us. Please know we are praying for you and your child. We are a fun family of three that love to go traveling and on adventures. We love bringing people together and you can find us hosting family and friends often in our home. We welcomed our son Declan into our family through adoption and are so excited to do so once more with your child! We’d be honored to partner with you in this journey and are open to sharing letters, photos, and visits if you choose!
-Nick and Megan
We have been best friends for ten years and married for six. In January 2020 we adopted our son Declan! As a family, we love to travel and go to the beach or a lake every chance we get. We also enjoy going for walks in the neighborhood or hiking on local trails. At home, we like to cook together and play games as a family. We love to make each other laugh no matter what we are doing. We enjoy having friends and family over to share a meal, play a board game or watch our favorite sports teams. We are excited to welcome another child into our home to share all of this with!
My Husband, Nick
Nick is my best friend, the rock of our family, and the man I truly love and enjoy spending time with. He has a way of making anything fun, puts family first, and is always up for an adventure. He works from home for a healthcare technology company and loves his work. When not working, you can often find him in the kitchen cooking for family and friends. He loves to golf, ski, paddleboard, play basketball and most importantly make Declan smile. Nick is loyal, thoughtful, and intelligent. He is always there to make others laugh or offer a shoulder to cry on. Above all else, Nick loves deeply and is an amazing father! Nick looks forward to teaching your child how to cook, play sports, the importance of prayer, and his love of comedy.
My Wife, Megan
Megan is an amazing mom, my best friend, and my inspiration! It is such a joy to watch her teach Declan something new. Megan is a part-time Pediatric Occupational Therapist and uses these skills every day raising our son. She is so caring, kind, and generous. She will take time to stop and talk to anyone just to brighten their day. Megan loves being outside, taking walks, going to the gym, or doing any activity on the water. She likes to express her creativity through crafts as well as trying new recipes in the kitchen. Megan looks forward to teaching your child about Jesus, arts and crafts, the importance of serving others, and her love of travel.
Our Son and Family
Our son, Declan, is almost two years old and will make an amazing big brother. He loves books and going to storytime at our local library. He is currently taking swim lessons and enjoys splashing around. He loves playing with our family dog, is kind, and loves being around other children. We communicate often with Declan's birth parents and send them photos and updates.
Our parents live within 30 minutes of us, so we get to see them very often. We enjoy spending time together by watching football, playing board games, having large family dinners, and just hanging out. Nick and his dad love to cook, so you can often find them both in the kitchen. Megan and her mom are both very creative and love to craft or do puzzles. We spend holidays with all of our extended family and also enjoy vacations, especially the beach with them as well. Our families are thrilled about our next adoption! Your baby will grow up with a big brother, cousins to play with, aunts and uncles to love them, and all four grandparents very close by, spoiling them every chance they get.
Our Home in Pennsylvania
We recently built our home in a vibrant community where many young families enjoy walking, playing outside, and swimming in the neighborhood pool. Our home has four bedrooms with a spacious kitchen and family room where we enjoy hosting friends and family. We have a large backyard where we like to garden, explore with Declan, and play with our family dog. One of our favorite places is our deck overlooking the backyard where we love to spend time drinking coffee or tea. Our neighborhood is located right across the street from our district’s newest elementary school and community park. Our favorite hiking and biking trail is only a few minutes away.
Our family lake house is our "second home". Located right on the water with a large deck that overlooks the lake. Our family enjoys boating, kayaking, and paddleboarding. We're so excited to share all of this with your baby!
We promise to raise your child in a faith-filled home with opportunities to grow in kindness, service, and generosity. We promise to teach him/her how to explore the world, ride a bike, cook, play sports, and provide many opportunities for the things they are interested in. We firmly believe that God has His hand in this union and our promise to you is to allow Him to guide us in caring for your child every step of their life. You are an important and honored member of this journey, and your child’s adoption story will be shared and cherished.

Our faith is the center of our home. We are so thankful for each blessing God has provided for us. When things are tough, we rely on prayer and our church community to help us in times of need. We are actively involved in our church community. We participate in church small groups and have led them in the past. Our church is 5 minutes from our home, which we attend every Sunday. Our extended family is also involved in their faith. Our parents also attend church every Sunday and are involved in various ways.
Our home is in one of the top school districts in the area with the newest elementary school right across the street! Our neighborhood has many young families that can often be seen out riding bikes or going on walks with their friends and family. Our neighborhood also has a community pool! The town has a splash pad, playgrounds, parks, and miles of hiking right around the corner. We have a beautiful town with a local library that has great programming for children such as storytime and music hour. The town provides holiday and family events like movies and concerts. One of our favorite things is light-up nights during the holiday season which welcomes families to partake in activities and see all the Christmas lights. We're also a short 15-minute drive from the zoo, children's museums, amusement parks, and various sporting venues!
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us as a family. Adoption has already been the greatest blessing of our lives and we are so excited to share our love and faith with another child. We promise to provide your child with a home that will always be safe, supportive, comforting, and filled with laughter and joy. We are open to texts, phone calls, and visits and look forward to developing a relationship with you!
Thank you again for considering us and know that we are praying for you!
