Our life of love and goofy happiness started 5 years ago and our journey for a child started a few years after that. We have been trying to have a child with all of the trackings, tests, doctor recommendations, etc for 3 years and we have been unsuccessful in getting pregnant. Before IVF jumped into our heads, we immediately thought of adoption and how wonderful that would be. Then, in speaking with Nightlight Christian Adoptions we learned about embryo adoption and are so thrilled that this is an actual option for us, what a miracle! We had no idea that you can actually give birth to your adopted child. Soon after finding out about this we got the confirmation from a doctor stating that we would not be able to have our own biological child and it was a beautiful sign that this is what we were meant to do.
With a few years of disappointments behind us, we have an amazing journey to look forward to and the only thing holding us back are the financial challenges. We know we will give our child a beautiful life filled with stability and unconditional love, but the initial hit of adoption will be taking a toll of our finances that our future child and us will need. This is why we are reaching out to Adoption Bridge for assistance. We are so grateful for all of these opportunities to build a family and we cannot wait to see what God has in store for us next. Staying faithful and living a life of gratitude, Melissa & Patrick
