Megan Zars

is adopting a child from India

The Zars Family is excited to share the news of their pending adoption!

In March 2020 we officially started the international adoption process with the goal to adopt a little girl from China with Down syndrome.

We always felt like adoption was part of our story. After we told our two boys about the decision to adopt, they keep saying "Yay! We're adopting a sister!" which makes this even more exciting. They have wished, prayed, and asked for a sister for the last few years and now we're making it happen!

Over the last 2 years, we have talked about adding to our family through adoption. Adoption has always been something on my heart since I was very, very young. I always felt that God wanted my family to grow through adoption and it was something Jacob and I talked about from the very beginning.

After having our second son, Caspian, we spent a lot of time questioning our next steps. We knew we wanted more kids but I wasn't sure I wanted to be pregnant again any time soon. However, God was already orchestrating his plan for us.

In March of 2019 we found out we were pregnant. I was anxious from the beginning, feeling like something was off with the pregnancy. We remained positive (because we were very excited) and learned in April of 2019 that we would be welcoming another little boy into the world! However, God's plan was a little different than ours, and in May 2019, he was born. Unfortunately, at 14 weeks pregnant, we miscarried our son and it was heartbreaking.

But after a storm, there is often a rainbow and it was after losing him that we felt it heavy on our hearts, mostly mine at first, that adoption was the next step. We were not wanting to replace him and do not see this as a "just try again" situation. Adoption has _ always _ been on our hearts as part of our story and had Baby Brother been with us today, adoption would still be on our minds as a way to grow our family.

It took us a while to get here but we have officially decided to grow our family through international adoption. And we are ecstatic. but also nervous. ;)
