Meagan and Jon


Hi there! We are Meagan, Jon and Gavin from Portland.

Thank you for taking a minute to read our letter as we share a little about our family. We have the greatest amount of respect and compassion for the decision you’re making and we hope you find peace through this process.

We are an active family who loves spending time together including our sweet pup Ollie. We live in the Pacific Northwest and are always on an adventure whether it be running trails or exploring rivers there is never a dull moment! At home, we love spending time with our family and friends around big, home cooked meals watching football and playing board games together. We try to make every moment count.

Jon is a gentle hearted, hardworking and extremely loving father. By day Jon owns a software company downtown where he puts his passion into designing and building digital products. He leads a very active lifestyle and enjoys trail running, taking CrossFit classes and of course chasing after our son Gavin who keeps us both on our toes! Jon loves to golf, he and Gavin go to the course every Saturday for a daddy and son ‘brunch and put.’ He is one of those people you can lean on, a true friend and amazing husband whom Meagan adores!

Meagan is strong, loving and committed! She is a passionate stay-at-home mom and spends her time taking Gavin to the park, library, zoo and play dates. She is also heavily involved in Gavin’s education, volunteering in the classroom and always encouraging his creativity. She is super crafty and always has cookies baking or a new batch of playdough made for whatever friends might be visiting that day. In her personal time, you will find her at kickboxing or dance classes or even painting abstract art for their home! Meagan is the type of mom who fills a room with warmth, making people feel included and loved.

Gavin is our sweet and vibrant little guy who brings us so much joy! He is beyond excited to have a little brother or sister and looks forward to teaching them about everything from race cars to building blocks. He loves playing ball with Ollie who is always gentle and patient with him.

Becoming parents is one of the greatest things to ever happen to us and we always felt our family was meant to grow bigger. We feel so grateful that our journey has lead us to adoption, we can’t wait to share our life with a new child who will have the most loving big brother to show them the way. As soon as we learned about open adoption we knew it would be the best fit for our family. We hope that any child we parent will feel love from all the important people in their lives and we hope to welcome birth family into our family as we start the journey ahead.
