Help the Creightons Adopt

Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read our story and consider donating to help us. We have been married since June 1, 2013, and started trying to conceive in October 2014. Three frustrating years later, after many tests and tears, we got our diagnosis of infertility. In layman's terms, I (Lauren) already ran out of eggs and am now facing menopause in my twenties. There is no cure or treatment option, and IVF gave us only a 1.5% chance of a live birth. After considering our few options (egg donor, embryo/"snowflake" adoption, foster to adopt, or private adoption), we are excited to announce that we plan to pursue a contract with a private, hopefully Christian, adoption agency in 2018! This process can be incredibly expensive, with fees for the agency, legal aid, home studies, and birth mom care/counseling running between $20,000-40,000. Anything that you feel led to give would be incredibly helpful at this point. Thank you again so much for your time, consideration, financial backing, and prayers as we move forward and strive to reflect God's love to our own future child/ren!
