Megan and Craig – engaged

{true love is not someone completing a missing half of yourself…but, rather, it is two whole people, full of gifts and wonder and goodness, side by side, walking through the adventures of life…together}

People come and go from our lives…sometimes in a few moments; sometimes after years. Then there are the precious, truly special people who enter our lives, by chance, stay for good…and it changes us. I remember the day Megan walked into our home, a slightly nervous (yes, I remember your hands shaking a bit! 🙂 ) 20 year old college student looking for a nanny position. She met our children and, within a few moments, that was that…instantaneous love! Megan became part of our home and daily lives…but so much more than that…she became part of our family. To my baby girl…Megan is the big sister she always wanted. Now, five years later, each time Megan comes back from graduate school, my daughter jumps up and down and dances because, as she says, “my big sister is home from school!!”. I will admit, I jump up and down and dance right besides her!!

My children are the most precious gift to me and to know that they are safe and happy, comforted and cared for…in those moments when I can’t be here…well, there are truly no words that can even touch my gratitude, my relief, my joy. Megan, you are a second daughter to me and I have watched you grow into this confident, amazing, truly beautiful person…inside and out. What would our lives be without you in it. You are irreplaceable…and not just because of all you do for us (even as the “dish fairy”!) but because of WHO you are. Your light, your joy, your aliveness and your gentle, giving nature. Such wonderful gifts!

Craig, my children still can’t believe that after 5 years, I met you last night for the first time…but I must say, it only took a few moments to see that you, as well, are a kind and good soul. I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to getting to know you better and to watch you both grow in love as you build your lives together.


  • Judy Cutter,

    Rachel, you’re comments first about Megan brought tears to my eyes. She is so special to her father and me and I know she feels the same about your beautiful children. And Craig is the best thing that has happened to her and together they have found their soul mates in each other. Thank you for these precious
    and beautiful pictures of their love for each other.
