We are both originally from the Midwest; Preston is from Illinois and Megan is from
Michigan. We met in 2012 when Megan was finishing up medical school and Preston was in the
army, stationed at Fort Campbell in Kentucky. We were set up on a blind date by our good
friends. After the first date, we knew there was a connection – it felt like we had known each
other for years.
After we began dating, Preston got out of the army and Megan graduated medical school
and started residency in General Surgery. When we became engaged, Megan realized that her
main priority was family, and decided to leave the practice of medicine. Since that time, we’ve
both come to understand the importance of doing what we love and building careers that focus
on our family and our values. We now own and operate a drop-in daycare center in our town. We love having a family-focused business that actively involves our 4-year-old daughter, Etta. We
are fortunate that she can come to work with us and be a part of our business!
As a family, we enjoy spending time outside in nature, and going on adventures. We love
seeing new places and trying new things. This is a passion we share with Etta and hope to share
with another child as well. There is always something new to see and experience, whether it’s in
our own backyard or across the country. It’s important to us to expose Etta and any future
children we may have to new sights, cultures, and ideas.
In 2017, we had been struggling with fertility. Adoption was something that had always
been on our minds, and we decided to pursue adopting a baby. We were fortunate to be
connected with a birth mother who became like family to us, and we welcomed our daughter,
Etta, into our lives in 2018. Since her birth, we have been very open about Etta’s adoption, and
we continue to share updates on her life with her birth mother.
We are excited to pursue expanding our family again through adoption! Etta is very
excited to be a part of our adoption journey this time around. She is a very thoughtful,
compassionate little girl, and she is very excited at the thought of becoming a big sister.
