Campaign Story

I’ve always been sure about motherhood. I’ve always known that I wanted adoption to be a part of my motherhood story. I just didn’t know that it would become the only way that motherhood would happen for me.
I am a 2-time breast cancer survivor (as many of you reading this already know). Because of the type of cancer I had, I’m unable to do IVF or IUI because those things require you to take hormones, which I cannot. I also, like too many Black women, have suffered from intrauterine fibroids which makes carrying a child to term dangerous to near impossible for me, hormone issues aside. I am now in excellent physical health, and I continue the work to maintain my mental and emotional health to become the best person and mother I can be.
Diva is my 2-year-old Boston Terrier. She’s an absolute joy to have. She’s the smartest, cutest, most loving dog I’ve ever met, and yes I’m unashamedly biased. She hasn’t met a stranger of the human or canine variety yet. She loves people of all ages and I know that she’ll absolutely adore her human sibling. They’ll be besties!
If you have the willingness and ability to give, the money that is raised will be used to cover the agency fees at my adoption agency, The Cradle. I thank you for your generosity, your support, and your prayers. You are helping to propel me forward and realize my dream of motherhood, and for that, I am forever grateful.
