The Story

After being married for a year, we decided we wanted to start a family. Unfortunately, a year later we were told our only hope of having babies would be through IVF with ICSI. We decided to go for it, and surprise it worked on the first try - TWINS! We were so excited to be expecting. But at 19.5 weeks pregnant I started having contractions and due to an incompetent cervix, we lost our twin girls, Gentry & Savannah. After taking time to grieve, we began exploring other options for growing our family, including adoption. 

After 2 failed frozen embryo transfers and a year "off", we are now pursuing domestic adoption to bring home our Baby Sully.  The past 4 years have been full of several trials & heartbreaks, but God has allowed our hearts to be full of hope as our new journey begins.

We look forward to the day we can add a baby to our lives. For years now we have watched the children close to us grow up, and it has brough us so much joy. We have seen first smiles, first steps, first birthdays, first concerts, first crushes, and so much more. We can't wait to be able to share in these firsts with the child we will welcome to our family. 

We look forward to making new family traditions and teaching a child the traditions we already have. We are excited to hear our home filled with a baby's cry and their laughter, the sound of their feet running down the hall, and the words Mommy and Daddy. 

The estimated cost of our adoption is $37,500, but any little bit can help. No donation is too small. Just think if 50 people donate $20, that's $1,000! If 50 people donate $50, that's $2,500! It all adds up. 

We appreciate anyone willing to make a donation. We are so ready to become parents!

We have officially been a waiting family for 19 months now. In December of last year and February of this year, we were matched with birth moms - both due with baby boys. However, in both of those cases, the birth mom decided to parent rather than place the baby for adoption. As time goes on, we get anxious but try to remain calm and trusting of His plan. Soon we will have our Baby Sully!

We have now been an active waiting family with our agency for 7 months. Time has flown by! We have already had to update our home study . . . crazy! No different than the days before, the last 7 months have had really good days filled with hope and days when it feels like our time my never come. But, through it all we have faith in Him and His timing. We don't know why God has made us wait so long to become parents, but understand it is His will. This is something that is beyond our control, and we are okay with that. Until our day comes and we have Baby Sully home with us, we will continue to enjoy the time we have just the two of us and continue to praise Him for the life we share and blessings we do have.

Baby Sully, we can't wait to meet you.
