My name is Robyn and I am 27. My husbands name is Josh and he is 31. We have been married for 5 years this May. I work as an Early Interventionist going into homes to help children with disabilities and developmental delays. Josh has worked in retail for the past 11 years and is in management. We live 30 minutes north of Nashville in a small town called Portland. We met in college and been together every since. Once we got married, we knew we wanted to have children right away! However, this was a lot harder than we expected.
When I was 18, I was diagnosed with PCOS. This is a hormonal disorder that causes cyst in the ovaries, weight gain, and makes it difficult to get pregnant. Josh and I have actively tried to conceive for almost 5 years now. I made regular visits with doctors during this time, had a few procedures done and was placed on medication. We also held onto hope during this time. In November 2017, I had a follow up procedure with my doctor and our hope took a halt. She said we have a slim chance of conceiving on our own, and if we do, we are at high risk for tubular birth. My doctor recommended IVF or adoption. We took a few months to pray and think about what we should do and decided to make a decision come new year. After a lot of praying and talking about it, we feel that adoption is the best option for us. There are already so many children that need a home.
We are ready to open our home to a little one. With that decision comes the heavy burden of the financial responsibility. We are coming to our friends and family for any help, even if that's just sharing our story. This will help reduce the up front cost that comes along with adoption. We are looking at almost $25,000 to adopt.
Josh and I are ready to be parents. All we have ever wanted is to have children and become a family. We never thought that we would be struggle with infertility.
Help us to reach our goal and have a family. Josh and I want to thank you for reading our story! Please pray for us during this journey!
