Update: Thank you for the amazing response we have had. We have many inquiries to work through. No more e-mails, please. If we still cannot find a family, I will absolutely let you all know. Thanks!
Good morning, friends. I hope you all had a beautiful weekend with your families. I am so looking forward to a little break from school and sports at the end of this week. We have been so busy! The good news is that we sold our home and are trying to find something suitable for our family. Trusting that God will lead us to the perfect home where we can finally feel settled again.
Today I am coming to you all with an unusual request. For many of you, it may be completely new.
A few years ago I followed my friend Jen’s very unusual adoption. I had never heard of anyone adopting embryos before and was so curious about the process and the success rate. If you’re like me, you believe that life begins at conception–that an embryo is LIFE, a child! I was so deeply touched watching my friend’s journey unfold–from the time that they were matched with embryos, to the successful pregnancy, and eventually to their beautiful little girl’s birth. It was amazing!
In following Jen’s embryo adoption, I began to do some of my own research and was shocked to find out that there are more than 600,000 embryos in America alone! Those are precious children! They are no different to any child that I have ever advocated for here on my blog. Medical science has come so far in helping families get pregnant–but my heart ached for the many, many thousands of precious babies who will possibly never have an opportunity to grow and become all who God has created them to be. It’s one of those bittersweet things, I guess.
I have been asked by a family who is very dear to our hearts to help them find a family for their two remaining embryos. Both are little boys. One little guy is completely healthy and “normal.” The other has a very rare condition known as “Klinefelter Syndrome.” Very sadly, if they donated their embryos to a clinic, they would absolutely “discard” the little boy who has special needs. He wouldn’t stand a chance! Like us, the family believes that every child is precious in His sight!
And so they would love for one family to adopt BOTH boys! In other words, they are looking for a family who would be willing to implant BOTH embryos in the womb…and trust God with the outcome.
We did some research and honestly, Klinefelter syndrome hardly even seems like a “special need.” It is really only apparent when a boy goes through puberty. The biggest challenge is that he will be unable to have his own children. Other than that, most websites state that these children go on to live very normal and healthy lives.
If you or someone you know is interested in adopting these two little angels who are just waiting for someone to give them a chance, please contact me at email@example.com. Only serious inquiries please.
We’re trusting God that He will raise up the perfect, faith-filled family.
