I am so grateful that so many of you have reached out to encourage our hearts and express your support of our upcoming adoption. No words can express how much it means to us! I have received many e-mails asking me for more information about embryo adoption. I’m sorry I haven’t had time to answer them all yet. Most of you want to know the same thing and so I’ll address them as blog posts as I’m able to. I am no expert at this yet as I am learning as we go, but I’m more than happy to share what I do know with you all.
Our journey to our four newest blessings is moving along and we’re thankful that God has gone before us and is moving every obstacle that stands in the way of these babies being given a chance. The good news is that we have been given a transfer date. Glory hallelujah!
December 11 is the date that God has ordained for these precious babies to be transferred into my womb. That will be almost exactly ten years after they were frozen. I will soon begin the medication to prepare my body to receive these tiny little darlings. Prayerfully, it will go well and the side effects will be minimal. Then I’ll travel out of state to where they are and have them transferred there. We did have the option to move them to Colorado, but by going there we save $2000 and that seemed like the wisest thing to do. Plus, I have heard such incredible things about the doctor at this clinic. He has a very high FET (frozen embryo transfer) success rate and we want to give these embryos the best possible chance of survival.
Some have asked me about being able to contribute financially to this adoption. I hesitated for many reasons. But after much prayer I have set up a place where anyone who would love to be a part of these four babies’ journey out of the test tube and into HOPE can donate.
We have had absolute peace that God is faithful and more than able to take care of every need that we have and every mountain that needs to be moved. It’s just one of those times when we have to trust in His sovereignty. When my heart wonders what the outcome of this will be, when I think about how long these babies have waited and what their chances of survival are….He gently reminds me of the ONE thing that matters…
…SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD!
When we’re obedient, He is faithful.
“And all these things will be added unto you.”
Thank you for choosing to journey with my family. Though some truly do not understand why we would even consider doing this, so many more have reached out in love. For that we are so very thankful. Really! Your comments of kindness and support have touched me so deeply.
