It’s a happy problem that they have since found themselves in as everything began to move much faster than originally planned. Due to the pandemic and other factors, processes that used to take 7-9 months are now taking less than 3 months, given meetings were moved to online platforms instead of what were previously done through in-person visits. That, coupled with a larger number of babies being put up for adoption as a direct result of COVID, and related causes, has led to their timeline being fast tracked. Given this current situation, they find themselves overjoyed with the upcoming (and potentially quick) prospect of a baby, but financial constraints are difficult with almost two years less to save than originally planned upon.
These two give their love, energy, and time to others’ children daily. Rachel works as an Intervention Specialist and Ryan is an Industrial Arts (wood shop) teacher. Good news is they have enough love to go around. Help us to help them adopt a baby so they can give their love to their own child. When Ryan & Rachel learned a couple of years ago they were infertile, an experience that comes easily to so many was taken from them. Now they hope to be able to welcome a child into their home and life through their own journey. Any amount that you can give to help this wonderful couple make their family a reality will be greatly appreciated, whether it’s $1 or $100.
It was important to Ryan and Rachel that we also post resources for folks who may be experiencing something similar to their path through infertility. Please visit this link to obtain support to help you through this difficult time. It’s also a great resource for friends and family to further understand infertility, infertility etiquette, and myths & facts so they can support others who experience these issues.

Ryan, Rachel and the rest of our family & friends thank you from the bottom of our hearts, especially during these difficult times.
