Adopting Baby Carpenter

Many of you may know our story, some may know a piece and others may have no idea but here it is.  Sean and I have been married for three years on April 30th, March will also be three years of trying to create our family. Yes, we started before the wedding, we really want to be parents!  Our first pregnancy was our honeymoon baby, two weeks after our positive test we miscarried.  This similar cycle happened to us six times, four miscarriages, one ectopic and one which I still think is a mystery but led to a D&C.  We have tried EVERYTHING, multiple specialists, tons of bloodwork, many painful procedures and even exploratory surgery.  All of this and guess what? We are healthy, young and are lucky to know we can get pregnant.  This still doesn't bring a child into our home though.  As if our hearts weren't broken enough, Sean and I decided to foster in hopes of adopting.  Two beautiful children and one amazing summer full of swimming and a super fun holiday season.  Our hearts got broken again and we weren't going to be able to adopt those children either.

We sit here three years into an emotional roller coaster reaching for any bit of hope we have left.  We can't continue this pain much longer and for that reason have decided to make the leap to adopt.  Just our medical bills alone have added up to close to $20k and adoption will be another $40k plus but we just keep figuring it out.  We don't want a child, we need a child!  We need to be parents and have so much love to give.  So we are finally breaking and asking for help, something we never thought we could do.  But I need to be a mom and I need to see Sean be a dad.  Please help us bring a child into our lives.  Any donation is beyond appreciated!
