Campaign Story

Our names are Kaydee and Matthew. I, Kaydee, was born with a genetic condition called Turner Syndrome which caused my ovaries to not develop. I’ve always known that building a family would not happen naturally because of this. A few years after my husband and I got married in 2016, we decided to start researching our options. This originally led us to pursue donor egg IVF. Our first transfer in January 2022 was not successful due to a bad batch of eggs. We thankfully received a replacement lot from the egg bank and were able to do another transfer in August 2022. Sadly, this transfer ended in a miscarriage with a genetically normal embryo. We then had to start looking for a new clinic due to our doctor’s retirement. The potential new clinic did not feel comfortable with us pursuing transferring our remaining embryo due to my increased risk because of a congenital heart defect. We knew this was a sign to move forward pursuing adoption as we were not comfortable with the financial aspect of using a gestational carrier. We were home study approved in March 2023 and are in the wait to be matched with a birth family. We could get a call at any time, so the timeline to save up ourselves for the cost is potentially short. Thank you for your support in our journey to become parents!

    Long Overdue Update

    It’s been 13 months since our Homestudy was completed and approved for us to officially be a waiting family for adoption.

    In those thirteen months, we have received a fair share of “Not yet’s”. Each potential case gives us a spark of hope, and each “not yet” hits a little harder.

    This week, we decided to add to our team by working with a consulting agency suggested to us if we were interested to help us network our profile and cast a wider search.

    From our first phone call with the consulting agency, we had an instant connection. It’s like He directly placed them in our path. There’s a story from last weekend that plays a part in this too that involves finding a missing pacifier outside with no reasonable explanation of how it got out there and was not chewed up by our dogs. 🙌🏻

    Networking with a consulting agency brings on an added cost that we feel will be worth it in the end. They are connecting us with a professional profile book creator who we can work with to revamp our existing profile book to help any expectant momma looking at it get to know us better.

    Since our first appointment with the RE in October of 2019, it’s been a long and hard journey. We know God has a plan for us, and we cannot wait to see what he has in store! His timing is perfect, even if it’s difficult to keep remaining patient.

    Thanks for believing in us, loving us, praying for us, and coming along for the ride!
