We have been asking and trusting in the Lord to grow our family since we got married in 2012. It was likely that infertility was our reality from the start, but we believed God was bigger than our diagnosis. As we prayed, the Lord saw fit to say “no” to our desire to become pregnant, and we were ready to consider our adoption options.
We learned about Embryo, or “Snowflake,” adoption in March of 2015 and felt led to pursue that. Over two years we adopted a total of 10 embryos and have faced significant loss with four failed attempts at pregnancy through embryo transfer. We have grown weary of the emotional ups and downs of that process.
So where do we find ourselves now? Through much prayer, conversation, and wisdom from trusted friends, we have changed direction again and are trusting the Lord to grow our family through domestic infant adoption.
This past may we were matched with an expectant mother who is due with a baby GIRL in less than one week!
We have a significant amount of our funds raised already but do have a ways to go. We recently received a matching grant of $2,000 from Lifesong for Orphans through our church Sojourn East, here in Louisville. This means that every dollar donated up to $2,000 will me matched by our church!
We know that adoption is a gift from God and that his Church is called to be a part of it. What a picture of the good news that we are adopted in to God’s family and he calls us his children!
