My son is 4 years old. He was born through IUI with donor sperm. He was my 5th and final IUI miracle! He is an outdoorsy kid but doesn't like to get too close to bugs or animals! We spend a lot of time visiting local playgrounds, the zoos close by, and go on bike rides almost daily! On rainy or cold days, he likes to do puzzles, play games, play with cars/trucks, and read books.

Letter

INTRO LETTER 

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to read about my family but more importantly, thank you for your decision to donate your embryos. I know this is not a decision that is taken lightly.

I would like to share a little about my story. I knew from a young age that I was meant to be a mom. I began working at 14 years old in the nursery school program at my church. I worked every day after school throughout my days in high school. I graduated from high school a semester early and used that time to work full time at the nursery school. When I entered college, I again found a job working in a daycare center as I missed working with young children. I graduated college early and worked full time as a 1 year old teacher. I thought I was living the dream until the news came that the daycare was closing. I was devastated but planned to switch to another center and continue helping children. While looking for jobs, I came across my current position which was working with new parents and their young children. This felt like the perfect opportunity to grow and use my Human Services degree. I have LOVED my job ever since. I love getting to know families, educating on safety topics and developmental milestones through the prenatal-preschool age, building connections, and helping parents learn to bond with their children! I have moved up over the last almost 12 years and I’m now in a management position. My coworkers are part of my support team and I’m thankful that my job is flexible which allows me to attend school events and stay home when my child is sick or school is closed!

In 2018 I began trying for a baby. I hadn’t found a partner and looked into different avenues. I met with an adoption attorney but that wasn’t going to work due to the uncertainty and expense. I researched other opportunities and came across IUI. I learned more about this and talked with a friend to see what she thought. Believe it or not, she shared with me that she was born via IUI with donor sperm! What are the odds! She was a great support through that whole process. I started with 3 natural IUI’s and then my second IUI with injectables was a success! In 2023, I was ready to expand my family again. My son had been asking for a sibling for some time and I felt like we were in a good place to add one! This time I started right away with the IUI’s with injectables. I did a total of 4 IUIs trying for a second child and realized it just wasn’t working out. I debated between IVF and embryo adoption and through several months of pros and cons, meeting with my fertility clinic, etc. I decided that embryo adoption was the right choice for me and I am beyond excited!

I describe my son and I as “goers and doers!” We enjoy spending time with family, friends, and attending community activities. We pick new activities to do when we can and visit many different playgrounds! Some of the activities we enjoy are going to the zoo, children’s museum, home improvement kid’s workshops, “touch a truck” events, and outdoor concerts. This summer we are looking forward to going to a baseball game, a water park, and a family vacation!

I grew up with both parents and a sister that is three years older than me. All of them are very supportive and helpful in my parenting journey. It certainly takes a village and I am lucky to have a good one between them, extended family, friends, and wonderful coworkers! I look forward to expanding my family and seeing my son grow as a big brother soon! I know he will be a great brother and I am excited about the relationship they will have as children and as they grow into adulthood. Thank you for taking the time to read this and again thank you for considering me to be the parent of your child. I will forever be grateful for your generosity!
