Buenos dias! We are Alex and Megan. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better.
We met in March of 2017 through an online dating app. Yes, we are one of the success stories! We lived two hours away from each other at the time, so our first few dates were marathon dates that were eight hours long. We wanted to keep finding out more about one another. Alex was attracted to Megan’s smile, fearlessness (she demonstrated Zumba moves in the middle of a parking lot), and attentiveness. Megan was attracted to Alex’s humor, kind brown eyes, and thoughtfulness.
Families were introduced on the third and fourth dates, which made our bond even stronger. By the end of April, Alex said, “I love you,” and Megan said, “Thank you!” It’s the longest-running joke in our marriage. Luckily, it only took a week for Megan to realize and proclaim her love. Now, when Alex is feeling snarky, he will respond with a ‘thank you’ to Megan’s ‘I love you.’ We both end up smiling at the memory. We were married in November of 2017, and are still smiling and laughing to this day.
Before we got married, we had a conversation about growing our family through the blessing of adoption. After multiple doctors’ visits, we discovered that it would be the only way we would have children. Since both of our hearts have been open to adoption for years, it was an easy decision. We look forward to welcoming children to our family through the path of adoption.
