I have cried and prayed about this situation, and I truly feel that GOD is finally saying to us, THIS IS YOUR SEASON. You've had the FAITH of that mustard seed and didn’t give up. Now, we’re about to be blessed!!!!
Due to unforseen issues, we are having to utilize other options in our quest to become parents.
We want to say "THANK YOU" to everyone who has blessed us with donations for our adoption. Because of you, we have been able to complete our home study, the background checks and baby proof our home.
Now we must continue trying to raise the adoption agency fees, so that we are able to adopt a newborn, or we will adopt a child or sibling group from foster care. There are so many children who want loving parents and have a family who loves them and want what's best for them. Our desire to become parents is very strong and our lives will not be complete without children.
We are Larry & Yolanda (Prewitt) Turner. We recently celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary on Feb. 28, although, we actually married on Feb. 29th, a leap day. :) We were both older when we got married and tried to start our family right away. Needless to say, that didn’t happen.
We went to see an infertility specialist only to find out that the problem was with me, that I have blocked fallopian tubes and surgery could not be done, because it’s too damaging for my delicate tubes. Also, my egg count was low and the quality of the eggs was not good. We were told the best way for me to conceive was to use and egg donor and bypass my tubes altogether. Well, the costs for that was quite a bit much for us, so it was back to babysitting our family members children to have the feel of being parents.
I’m an elementary school teacher, so being around children has always been a love for me. I never thought that I wouldn’t be able to have children.
All we have ever wanted to be in life was to be parents. We’re older and more stable now and this child/children will complete our family. We have a yellow lab named Bailey and an American kitten named Spot, who are our fur babies and they mean the world to us. They both love children and we can’t wait for them to meet their new sibling or siblings.
Every little bit helps bring us closer to our dream of parenthood and ending this nightmare of wishing that we had children of our own. We thank you in advance for even taking the time to read our whole story.
If you can share this on your timeline that would also be great. Thank you again for helping us with our adoption fundraiser and reading our story!
Larry, Yolanda, Bailey, Spot & the future Turner children
