We are Brook and Carl of Vermilion, OH humbly seeking assistance to adopt a child. Adoption has been on our hearts for many years, knowing long before our marriage in 2013 that we would not be able to conceive naturally.
When Carl was 18, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. After going through rounds of chemo and two surgeries, Carl was cancer free a year later! However, the treatment caused irreversible nerve damage to his body, making our only options for a child IVF or adoption. While we do plan to attempt IVF at some point in the future, we strongly feel that we are called to adopt, hoping to raise a child as our own in a loving Christian home.
