Heather and her husband have faced difficulties and overcome the challenges of infertility to build a large and loving family.
After Heather was diagnosed with endometriosis, a condition that made it difficult for her to conceive, the couple explored various ways to become parents.
Initially, they opted for in-vitro fertilization (IVF), but shortly before the procedure, they had a change of heart.
They felt unsettled and uncertain and decided to cancel the IVF process. However, their desire to become parents remained strong, leading them to consider adoption.
The couple faced financial challenges, as the adoption process in the United States can be costly. Fortunately, their supportive grandparents stepped in to help.
Their first adopted child, David, brought great joy into their lives, and they expanded their family further by adopting Robert, another son, followed by 2-year-old Robert and 8-year-old Hayley.
Brandon, their next adopted son, filled the house with laughter and love.
After eight years of unsuccessful attempts to conceive, Heather received the long-awaited news that she was pregnant.
The birth of their biological son, a boy named Gideon, marks a significant milestone in their journey.
Their family continued to grow as they decided to provide a loving home to Izzy, who came to them at just five months old.
The youngest member of their family was Noah, a three-year-old boy who quickly became a cherished member.
Heather views their journey as a great success and believes that destiny brought them together to create a loving and diverse family.
Despite the initial prognosis from doctors that they would never become parents, they not only became parents but exceeded their expectations by welcoming seven wonderful children through foster care and adoption.
