A Miracle for the McFarland’s

news last week. Stacey McFarland, 34 years
old, has poured herself into and taught other
people’s children for some 16 years. Her
husband, Randy McFarland, recently returned from a year long overseas deployment which was his second tour of duty.  This incredible 
couple has given so much of themselves and
sacrificed much for others and our country.
They are just good people to their core. 

This couple has wanted desperately to start a
family of their own. After some time, it
became evident that something may be
medically wrong.   After many doctor’s
appointments and tests, Stacey learned she
would need surgery to have any hope of
conceiving.  After surgery last week
(hysteroscopy), Stacey learned that she has
stage 4 Endometriosis covering all of her
reproductive organs, bowels, and bladder.  She also learned she has extensive fibrosis of the
reproductive organs and scarring of the
tissues. Doctors have told her she has less
than a 5%  chance of conceiving naturally due to the diagnosis and damage. The very surgery that was done to help her increase her
chances of conceiving has ended up bringing a devastating medical diagnosis which in turn
has dashed their dreams of conceiving their
own child naturally. 

The only hope they’ve been given is
IVF.  This very expensive journey is not
covered by their insurance. My hope is that
friends, family, those whose children have had the pleasure of being in Stacey’s care and
classroom, and even complete strangers will
join me in making a Christmas “Miracle for the McFarland’s” come true.  Let’s give back to
this generous, giving family and help them
realize that their dream of having a child of
their own is not out of reach. Thank you in
advance for the outpouring of love that I know will come.
