We have been blessed with ten wonderful years of marriage. We desired to have children, but we wanted to be established as a couple. The first year of marriage we used personal protection. After the first year we actively started trying to conceive. We didn't understand exactly why not yet, but knew that God had his perfect plan.
Joy went and was tested to see that all was working well. The doctor did not see any cause for concern. She had several tests and all came back normal. We continued praying for our little blessing.
A couple years later Derrick decided to go and be tested as well. This is when we found some of our infertility problems. We didn't point fingers, but we knew this circumstance was for both of us to walk through. We realized that God had a bigger plan.
We have drawn closer together in our marriage through these heartaches. We never wanted to rush into a major decision that the Lord didn't clearly direct us in. We greatly desire to start a family as the Lord will provide. It has been such an amazing picture to see him work in our lives and direct our daily path. The Lord has made it very clear to us that we are to move forward with Embryo Adoption! This is so exciting to us to see the Lord work. We can't wait to see our precious, little babies that He will soon bless us with.
We have worked hard to raise the monies for adoption. We are using several avenues to help us in this process. We are using Adoption Bridge to help us with some of these costs. Thank you for taking the time to read our story. God bless.
