We adopted our first son, Cameron, after six unsuccessful rounds of IVF. He came to us through a traditional, semi-open, out-of-state adoption. His birthmother is a truly unselfish woman, and we are eternally grateful for the tough choices she made for Cameron's sake. My husband and I held him for the first time when he was just a couple of hours old, and he hasn't left our loving arms since then. He is now five and will start kindergarten in the fall of 2009. Our twins, Anderson and Benjamin joined our family through the miracle of embryo adoption. We adopted six frozen embryos through the Snowflakes program, which is part of Nightlight Christian Adoptions. Three survived the thaw, all three were transferred back to me and we were blessed with our twins. The boys arrived six weeks early and stayed in the NICU for two weeks until they started eating and growing. They didn't need any oxygen or other interventions and are now happy, healthy three-year-olds. We met their genetic family (including three genetic sisters) in Colorado last fall and plan to continue an open relationship with them in order to enrich all of our lives with the shared love we have for these children.
Hi! Thanks for the welcome! Your boys are adorable, very cute! I have one son, and would love to adopt at this time. Have been trying for years, but no luck with adoption.
You answered my question perfectly! Thank you so much. I actually have my ovaries still and as far as we know, my husband is able to have children. I was just curious as to if my eggs and his little guys could be used to make a baby and then be implanted into a surrogate and if so, would there be eggs left over for someone else to use? We haven't really looked into that because we feel that there are plenty of children out there that already need a home so we would rather adopt them than do the surrogate. However, if we are able to make embryos for other people and that is allowed, that might be something to find out about. Just a thought. Thanks for your help. -Crysti
Hi Wendy! I just watched your videos on the E.A. site and was so touched! That is an amazing thing you and the genetic family went through. My husband and I have just been approved as a hopeful adoptive couple. I feel God is leading us in that direction, but now that I have seen this I can't help but wonder if this might be in our future too. Your family is so adoreable! We want to be like you when we grow up!
I met with Kim and Dr. Younglove today. They were fantastic. They appeared just as eager as I for things to work out. I got the Rx for the drugs I want, and once I pick those up and get going on them I'll probably update our little group. But I just have to say thanks again Wendy, without your guidance I'd still be begging for help from other OBs. :)
