In January 2014, Megan and Alex traveled to China to adopt their daughter Chloe. After a year-long adoption process, they boarded the flight home, overjoyed to welcome their 2-year-old into their family of six. For Chloe, that meant getting the parents she needed and becoming a sister to three brothers.
With the family settling into their new routine, the last thing on Megan and Alex’s mind was adopting again. But several months later, they read about Molly, a waiting child. Discussing the care they could give another child, the couple agreed, “Maybe one more.”
Molly, like Chloe, spent her early years in an orphanage. But Molly, who was born with hydrocephalus and spina bifida, needed swift medical attention. Working with WACAP to help expedite their travel process from China, Alex and Megan arrived home with 3-year-old Molly in the spring of 2016 — with four siblings clamoring to meet her, and a family to see her through every surgery she required.
Today, Chloe and Molly are both 5 years old, and both girls know they’re loved.
Through adoption they’ve gained three brothers, become sisters to them and sisters to each other.
Megan and Alex can’t imagine life without their kids, a happy truth we see in their children’s smiles, and in Chloe and Molly’s joyful embrace.
Happy Sisters Day, Molly and Chloe!
