We are so thrilled to share with everyone our BIG NEWS... We are ADOPTING!
Our story began over nine years ago. Chris and I met, fell head over heels in love and immediately knew we were meant to be together forever. Eighteen months later we got married in a beautiful little white chapel with all of our closest family and friends. We bought our first home and decided to wait to start a family until I finished college. I went to school, graduated, and became a teacher. Becoming a teacher was something I have wanted to do since I was a little girl! Chris and I were overjoyed when I finally did it. We worked hard together to build a nice home and future for a family one day. Our life as a married couple is more than I could ever ask for. We were beyond excited when the time came for us to start trying to have a baby. We couldn't wait to see the plans God had for our family.
We tried to get pregnant for a year by ourselves before we went to the doctor to see if there was anything wrong. Turns out we did have some fertility issues, but our doctor felt very strongly that we could get pregnant through IVF. So we gathered up our little nest egg and put it all into two rounds of IVF. A year later and we are still no closer to achieving our dreams of being mommy and daddy. I don't know how we could have made it through the ups and downs with out our family, friends, and sunday school class standing by our sides. Chris and I have only grown stronger as a married couple during this time. After the last round of IVF we got a call from our doctor to see if we were going to try again for the third time. We decided to give it a little bit of time and see what we truly felt we should do. I immediately knew that I wanted to adopt, God gave me this peace in my heart that let me know that was the next step for us. A few days later Chris came to me and said he didn't think another round of IVF was the next step for us. I cant tell you how happy I was to hear this, it was a miracle!!!
Chris and I believe that God is trying to tell us something and it is time for us to listen. We feel strongly that we are being called to adopt a baby. Chris and I are not looking at adoption as a last resort. We really feel that there is a child out there that is meant just for us and we eagerly anticipating meeting him or her.
It is very humbling to have to ask for help but we need your support to raise money to make our adoption happen. If you would like to help us bring home baby Hutto by donating, we apreciate your generosity and would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. LOVE is what will make our FAMILY.
Please keep us in your prayers...
Chris and Hillary
