Domestic Adoption

Dear Expectant Mother, Thank you so much for reading our letter! Thank you even more for considering us as possible adoptive parents for your child! We understand this is an extremely challenging decision, and we respect your consideration. One of the greatest wishes that we have shared as a couple is to be parents. Our infertility was a major challenge for us at first, but we now recognize that adoption was God's plan for us. Here's a little background about who we are: We met in 2003 when we were both medical students in Houston, and got married in 2008. Dustin (age 39) is trained as a pediatrician and now does research identifying causes of genetic diseases in children. Megan (age 37) is also a medical researcher, working in a laboratory to study viruses and the immune system. We moved to St. Louis in 2011, and are very happy living in an older house with a big backyard. Our neighborhood is very friendly and has great schools. We were extraordinarily blessed to adopt our amazing daughter Marie in 2018; she is now 3 years old. She is very active, and enjoys reading and playing with her stuffed animals. Our family (definitely including Marie!) loves to travel, and we try to take several big trips each year. In our free time, we also like to take bike rides and walks, and visit with friends. Dustin loves doing puzzles and working on the yard in his spare time, and Megan really enjoys cooking and putting together family and travel photo albums. We are very close with our extended families, and enjoy visiting with them often. Megan has a younger brother and sister, and Dustin is one of five children, so there are many young cousins that Marie enjoys visiting and playing with, as well as aunts, uncles and grandparents to shower her with affection. We know they would be thrilled to welcome a new child into our family! Depending on your preferences, we would love to have an open relationship with you. However, we would respect whatever decision you make about the level of contact you would prefer. Whatever the race or ethnicity of our adopted child, we would foster a positive cultural identity and access to a larger cultural community. We have always dreamed of having a large, rambunctious family with lots of fun and laughter. Thank you for considering us as potential adoptive parents for your child! Gratefully, Megan and Dustin
