The Wegners Adopt!

Kellsey Wegner
Kellsey Wegner Oregon, Wisconsin

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. We are John and Kellsey and we have just been awarded a $3,000 matching grant from Blackhawk Church and Lifesong Adoption Funds, administered by Lifesong for Orphans!

We have been married for over 9 years and have been trying to start our family for the past 3 years, with no success. Infertility has been one of the hardest, most trying times we have experienced. We have both gone to multiple doctor appointments, done countless tests and labs, and even tried fertility treatments and medications without success. After multiple attempts of IUI (intrauterine insemination), we couldn’t do it anymore. The emotions and stress of it were becoming too much.

We both had a heart for adoption, even prior to meeting, and thought that at one point in our lives we would adopt. Because of this passion, we made the decision to pursue domestic newborn adoption. We learned about a consultant group, Faithful Adoption Consultants (FAC), through some friends and decided to check them out. FAC walks alongside hopeful adoptive families as they navigate the process of adoption. They are not a placing agency or a facilitator, but work to educate and counsel their clients through each and every step of the adoption journey. Having them to help us along the way is such a blessing.

We are so excited to be starting this journey and we would love for you to follow along with us! We cannot wait to bring baby Wegner home as soon as possible!


STRIPE charges an online processing fee (2.2% +.30 USD per transaction). Your donations will be decreased by this amount. You may also send a check payable to “Lifesong for Orphans”. In the memo line please write “Wegner 09229”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 9, Gridley, IL 61744.
