Alex & Megan

Hello!

We're Alex & Megan! Family is the most important thing to us. Whether we're spending time with our closest friends (our chosen family), at a weeknight dinner with our sisters and niece, or at a large family gathering, we are happiest when we're sharing our lives with those that we love.
What we want more than anything is to share our lives, love, and family with a child. We look forward to the joys of finger painting, spaghetti nights, cousin play-dates, nightly stories, and even temper tantrums, toddler meltdowns, tough conversations, teenage drama, and all that comes with raising a child. We are so excited to become parents! Thank you so much for taking the time to look through our profile and get to know us.

Who We Are

We are high school sweethearts. We recently turned 32, and also celebrated 16 years together. That’s half of our lives! We love that we have experienced so much of life with one another and feel lucky to have so many memories and stories as a couple. We look forward to one day being able to share those stories and memories with our children.
We actually met when we were much younger. We attended Wednesday evening religion classes at the same church when we were kids. It wasn’t until we ended up in the same high school though, that we got to know each other well. Both of us were in band, so we fell into the same group of friends. We first truly connected one day while helping our band director over the summer with a project at the school, and we bonded over our similar taste in books and movies.
We got married in 2013 and bought a house in our hometown. We lived there for about three years, and then we relocated to Tennessee for Alex’s job. We both loved our jobs that we had while we were there, but we realized during our three years away just how important home and family were to us. Both of our families and our lifelong friends were in St. Louis, so we were thrilled when we had an opportunity to move back in 2019.
Being home again has been truly incredible. We live within about an hour radius of all of our parents. We are within ten minutes of both Megan’s sister, as well as Alex’s sister and her husband and daughter (our niece, Isla). We are also ten minutes away from our best friends. Their daughter Violet knows us as Uncle Alex and Aunt Megan.
One thing that is so special about how long we have been together is how well our families blend seamlessly into one. Our sisters consider themselves to be each other’s sister as well. Alex’s sister, brother-in-law, and niece joined us for Thanksgiving at Megan’s dad’s house. Megan’s sister joins us for weekly dinners with Alex’s dad. Megan’s sister and Alex’s mom house-sat for us together while we were on vacation. We have an incredibly close, loving support system who cannot wait to welcome our child into their lives.

Adoption Diary

New Arrival

Last week was an incredibly exciting time for our family. Our new niece, Ellie, was born on Wednesday- St. Patrick’s Day! We see many themed birthday parties in her future.
We were not expecting to get to see her in the hospital due to Covid restrictions, but we got a pleasant surprise! Policies changed, and so she was born early afternoon, and we got to go see her that evening! We love how close we live to our family, so when they came home from the hospital on Friday, we were able to squeeze in several visits over the weekend. Having one niece has been amazing, so we are super excited for two!
