Oglesby Adoption

Justin and I have always known we wanted to have children even before we met.  After being married for two years, enjoying just the two of us, and Justin finishing up his master’s degree, we thought it was the perfect time to start a family. 

We were told by multiple people that it could take anywhere from six months to a year to conceive so we didn’t start seeking out doctor’s help until after it had been well over a year.  I remember the first time our Obgyn told us there was really nothing else he could do for us that we would have to be referred to a fertility specialist. 

We were scared and felt completely defeated, now what?!  Fast forward to today, five years later. We have been to two different fertility specialist where we were diagnosed just to find out we were misdiagnosed then onto a completely different diagnosis, multiple IUI‘s, procedures, medication, a failed attempt at IVF, and one surgery later we have yet to become pregnant. 

Through all of this, we feel so blessed to have grown closer together as a married couple and we continue to strive to keep Christ the center of our marriage.  We have learned so much through this entire process but the most exciting of all is the opportunity to, one day, hopefully soon adopt a child.  We, without doubt, know that God wants us to pursue adoption. 

We have such a strong passion and love for the beautiful picture that is adoption.  Adoption is simply an overflow of what God has done for us.

In the United States, private adoption usually costs anywhere from $20,000 to $60,000. As you could imagine, we were floored when we ran across these numbers. How in the world are we supposed to make this happen?! Unfortunately, we don’t have the exact number until our baby is in our arms but we have a pretty good estimation at about $60,000. That number could change as we go along. Our goal is to raise $30,000 and we will cover the rest of the expenses.
