Duncan Family Adoption

So what led us to our decision of adoption?

Our decision to adopt came through infertility. After a year of being unable to conceive on our own we sought the help of an infertility specialist. It was discovered that I had endometriosis and had a laparoscopic surgery for treatment. After several unsuccessful rounds of IUI treatment we were referred to IVF. Denis and I decided that IVF was not a good choice for us and decided to stop treatment. Although it was a very sad time, we found immense peace in our decision. We began our exploring adoption and what that would mean for us. A scripture that we referred to frequently during this time is Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plan I have for you, declared the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. We knew that God still had plans for us to begin our family and we were excited to begin our adoption journey.

The more we learned about adoption, the more excited we became. We chose an agency and began our homestudy. During this time we had more education about adoption through books and classes. We also grew very excited about doing an open adoption. Since our decision to adopt we have been praying for our birthmother. We are already so proud of her and for her decision for life and the courage to make an adoption plan for her child. We love our birthmother and child (although we don’t know them yet) and can’t wait to meet them! We can both honestly say that we are more excited to become adoptive parents than we would be if we were conceiving a child on our own. Just to know that we will be part of a beautiful relationship between child, birthmother and us is so exciting! We look forward to providing a home and family with lots of love, faith and fun! 🙂

Our current step in the adoption process now is funding. Our homestudy is complete and approved; we just need to ensure we are prepared to meet the agency fees for our future match. We are confident that God will meet our need!
