Today’s success story is about a woman named Kara. She met her husband when they were kids and started trying to conceive shortly after getting married. After two years, they finally saw a reproductive endocrinologist, who couldn’t find anything wrong with Kara or her husband. Multiple doctors later, the diagnosis was still unexplained infertility. After taking a break for about a year, she and her husband conceived naturally, which sadly ended in a miscarriage. After two more miscarriages and a doctor pushing for IVF, they finally received a real diagnosis. Let’s listen to how Kara and her husband ultimately decided on an open adoption after trying to conceive for the better part of a decade. Grab your tissues, ladies, this one gets pretty emotional.
