Making A Miracle


“Just Relax” They Say

Alexis DelChiaro | June 26, 2017

•By Kathryne Shrewsbury, Guest Blogger Let’s keep it real, dealing with infertility issues sucks. It is stressful, time consuming and expensive. You are not in control of the outcome even if you do everything right. I know first hand what infertility looks like having gone through two rounds of IVF, one fresh embryo transfer, one frozen embryo transfer, hundreds of injections, 40,000 dollars spent and countless hours at doctors appointments. My…

 

Wishing and Hoping and Thinking and Praying

Birkley Kuykendall | June 22, 2017

•Written by Sarah Lanning, Guest Blogger I’m a huge advocate for Adoption. It has been a huge part of my life as I was adopted along with my four other siblings.  I met my husband and on our first date he told me that his father was also adopted. We immediately bonded over that and I knew this was the man I was going to marry. After four years of trying…

 

Timing. Is. Everything.

Alexis DelChiaro | June 20, 2017

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always pictured myself having a big family. Not just 3 or 4 children, I seriously want 10 kids! Even though my two “almost twins” can be a lot to handle and completely test my sanity at times (coffee helps!), I actually still want to have more babies! Ok, ok…so 10 kids is probably a bit outrageous and mainly because logistics…like who’s gonna…

 

What About Dad?

•Written by Elizabeth Johnson, Guest Blogger   My husband is a solid, secure and wonderful guy. And when I say solid, I mean solid – 6’3, 250 and bench presses almost 400 lbs (yes, that is a real stat). He is funny, sensitive, a serious planner and the most intuitive person I know. We met at a wedding – very cliché, him a groomsman, me a bridesmaid – and started…

 

A Hole In One. Finally.

Birkley Kuykendall | June 14, 2017

•By Tamara Van Happen, Guest Blogger Ohhhh the ugly world of infertility. From the start we knew IVF was our only shot at ever having a biological child. My husband has Cystic Fibrosis. As if that weren’t bad enough, 98% of men with CF are born without a vas deferens (basically it’s like having a vasectomy to begin with!) We had little hope we would be in that 2% as…

 

Adventure Awaits

Birkley Kuykendall | June 12, 2017

•By Kristi and Ben Graves, Guest Bloggers The word “adventure” means: an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity.  So far that has been the theme of our married life and the best way to describe this most recent journey that we have begun: the path to growing our family through adoption. We have been married for 10 years, and during that time together we have lived in 3…

 

Some Things Are Worth The Wait

Birkley Kuykendall | June 8, 2017

By Kristy Koser, Guest Blogger My husband Nate and I had been trying to conceive for almost 10 years. We tried on and off for over 5 years on our own, tracking my cycles, body temperature, and ovulation. But after no success we decided to make an appointment at the nearest fertility clinic. We started with six rounds of Clomid, which resulted in two pregnancy losses, then moved to four…

 

Oh How Sweet It Is

Birkley Kuykendall | June 6, 2017

•By Nicole Cole, Guest Blogger I’m Nicole, wife to Tyler and new mama to Campbell and Crawford. My two babes born 10 weeks apart. Campbell joined our family by adoption and Crawford grew in my belly. There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not immensely grateful to be a mama to not one… but TWO incredible tiny humans! I’m so excited to share a little of our story…

 

Protecting The Family Jewels

Birkley Kuykendall | June 1, 2017

By Henry Gardiner, Guest Blogger   Infertility is a struggle no-one should have to go through but sadly it is one that is on the rise. Across the world fertility rates are falling as more and more people fail to conceive. The physical and emotional strain is felt most often by the woman. But in reality the causes of infertility can be very unclear. It is thought that the reasons…

 

The Business of Baby Making

Birkley Kuykendall | May 30, 2017

By Kristin Carter, Guest Blogger   I really haven’t shared this story with many people. Fertility problems are so hard, and I don’t wish them on anyone. I can see how marriages can break up over such devastating news especially if the other partner isn’t supportive. I also think about the people that struggle that don’t have the means to pay for IVF. I still have drugs sitting in my…
