The Road to Parenthood

The one thing that stood out to me when I met my husband Michael was his love for family. Family was so important to both of us we couldn't wait to start our own. If only it was that easy...
Our road to parenthood has been a physical and personal journey that has tested our relationship, our faith and our commitment to become parents. There was a point in time when I could not see how this would be possible. What I have learned now is when it is God's will, there will be a WAY.
After finding out that we would never be able to conceive a child I went through a painful and emotional recovery from a hysterectomy. We began praying for a way to create a family. Our prayers were answered immediately. God sent us two incredible angles who are selflessly willing to do whatever it takes to make our dream a reality. Without hesitation my sister and cousin volunteered to give us the one thing we thought we could never have, a baby of our own. These two amazing women have forever changed our lives and we will be eternally grateful. So here we are half way through this wildly expensive, emotionally exhausting journey and have fallen a little short of the finish line. We are asking our friends and family for a little help to complete our road to parenthood. Michael and I greatly appreciate your love and support and hope to see our dream come true this summer.
With love and blessings,
