Hi! My name is Kristi. Being a mom was the one thing I always knew I wanted to be, even from an early age. Proverbs says “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps”. I’ve never felt that verse to be more true in my life than it has been as I have pursued becoming a mom. In early 2021 I decided to start my journey to motherhood by starting IVF. I thought by that time in my life I would have found the man I wanted to spend my life with and have children with but God hasn’t brought him into my life yet. I’m still praying and believing that God will bring the right man into my life but, due to being 38 at the time, I decided to start looking into having a baby on my own. I went through two rounds of IVF and was blessed with three little embryos. Due to my age, my doctor wanted me to have the embryos tested and we found out that the two embryos from my first round of IVF were both boys and one was healthy and one was considered abnormal. Unfortunately, both of my pregnancies were lost around the 5-week mark. My doctor ran more tests however all my blood work still shows that I’m very healthy and there is no reason why I should have lost the babies. This is when he suggested I look into embryo adoption because it would give me the chance of getting pregnant with an embryo formed from a younger/healthier egg.

I had never heard of embryo adoption before so this was something exciting and gave me hope. After praying a lot, doing my research, and grieving the babies I lost, I decided embryo adoption was the right path for me to take to pursue having a child. I have always felt like I have this longing inside of me to adopt and now knowing that I get to adopt embryos and give them a chance at life is something greater than I could have imagined. I am so excited to become a mother this way and see how these little sparks of life turn into beautiful babies, each with their own little personalities.

I'm raising money for the adoption because as you can imagine...adoption is expensive and after all the costs I incurred with IVF I could use the the extra support to help my dream of having a family come true.  Thank you so much for your support and donation!  I truly appreciate it!
