& JOHN WAYNE
Thank you for making the difficult decisions that went into the adoption plan for you and your child.
DEAR BIRTH PARENTS,
W e are a loving family of three that includes our son, who is 8-years-old. Even though John Wayne is not Lance’s biological child he is 100% his son in every way. Because of the deep and abiding love Lance has for John Wayne we know adoption is the perfect way to grow our family.
We also have several fur babies (2 dogs, a cat, a horse, and chickens). We have been praying to expand our family. While we have been unsuccessful in sustaining a pregnancy through birth, our hearts are overjoyed at the thought of adoption. Our extended family has experienced so many beautiful examples of adoption journeys, and we are excited to begin our journey.
FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE MY BIGGEST JOYS IN LIFE.
I HAVE A CLOSE FAMILY AND A FEW FRIENDS WHOM I CONSIDER FAMILY. I have a close family and a few friends whom I consider family. We enjoy playing board/card games, watching sports, watching the kids play, and mom’s night out for crafting and sushi. We also enjoy going on dates and family outings to rodeos and concerts. I was always surrounded by music, so you will often find me singing and dancing around the house or while driving down the street.
Being a mom is my greatest accomplishment. I love teaching John Wayne anything and everything, while also watching him problem solve and learn on his own. I love reading with him and watching him read to his younger cousins. He has a kind heart and I know he will be a loving big brother. I look forward to reading and playing with our future child, and watching them learn and grow.

I GREW UP IN A SMALL TOWN AND HAVE A LARGE FAMILY.

John Wayne is an active 8-year-old, participating in horse riding, 4-H, cub scouts, swim team, archery, and robotics. In addition to all his activities, he loves reading, science experiments, bike riding, exploring nature, Lego competitions, the guitar and piano, and going on cruises (when there are animal adventures, of course).
ANIMALS ARE A PART OF OUR FAMILY. We have 2 loving goldendoodles, a relaxed cat, a gentle giant of a horse, and 5 chickens. John Wayne is always asking when we can get our next animal, whether it’s a goat, cow, lizard, or another dog.
As a young child, Megan’s childhood consisted of a close-knit bond with her single mother and younger sister and brother. Once her mother met her stepfather, their family was complete. Megan’s mom and siblings are close emotionally and geographically. Megan’s family has experienced adoption from multiple sides. She has two uncles who were adopted in the 1950s. Her aunt and uncle adopted two children internationally in the 1990s. Another aunt in early 1980 was pregnant as a young teen. She had a semi-open adoption. After her son turned 18, he contacted her and he has had a relationship with the entire extended family ever since.
Lance has a very close relationship with his parents and two brothers. Most of his family resides in East Texas, with one brother living within 5 miles. Since both Megan and Lance’s family live nearby, John Wayne also has a close relationship with all his cousins.
MORE ON OUR FAMILY
They will play in the mud, walk in the woods, and swim in the sunshine. They will watch sports on TV and in the stadium. They will be given every opportunity to dream dreams and reach for their highest potential. Both of us are on an adoption journey. We would love to explore whether we can walk this journey together.
WITH PRAYER AND LOVE,
– Megan, Lance, and John Wayne
WE WOULD LOVE TO
HEAR FROM YOU!
