Merry Christmas!
Will any of us forget the year 2020? Aren't we all a bit stunned?

With JOY! we've arrived at the Christmas season. Let's take a minute to pause, breathe deeply, listen carefully and soak in the sights and sounds of this season.

Now is a time to celebrate and reflect. And that is exactly what we are going to do in this newsletter. So grab your peppermint mocha, apple cider, eggnog...or maybe even some wassail...turn on some Christmas tunes, and celebrate with us the most joyous news ever - God with us, Immanuel.

The Snowflakes Team wishes you peace, love and joy this Christmas!
"We are so Blessed Beyond Measure!"
Our fertility journey began when I was twenty-nine. After trying to conceive for a year, I was diagnosed with low ovarian reserve. After seeing several reproductive endocrinologists, in vitro seemed the most promising option moving forward. My husband and I are very outcome-focused people, so with motivated spirits we pursued two egg retrievals and one transfer, and within six months we were pregnant. We were thrilled to be expecting our first son!

When he was 2 years old, we began pursuing fertility treatments again. This time, we ended up doing three egg retrievals. Unfortunately, after each retrieval, there were no viable embryos to transfer.

I felt crushed, depressed, and hopeless. I thought I would never be able to experience pregnancy again. I had done everything by the book—the injections, medications, acupuncture, diet changes, you name it! I thought, “Why was this happening to us? Doesn’t God know our deepest desire is to grow our family?”


Molly was FROZEN 27 YEARS!
Those of you familiar with the Snowflakes program know that we believe life begins at conception and that we advocate for each and every embryo placed through our program.

Dr. Keenan, the family's Reproductive Endocrinologist, says, “I think this is proof positive that no embryo should ever be discarded, certainly not because it is ‘old’!”

When something as amazing as the birth of Molly happens we have to celebrate - even if the miracle occurred at another organization!

Frozen October 1992 and Born on October 26, 2020, little Molly is technically 28 years old. That is only 2 years younger than her proud mom. This new little girl is a full genetic sibling of her sister, Emma Wren, who also spent 24 years waiting in frozen storage to make her appearance in November 2017.

"We initially waited on our clinic waitlist for a year. Once we were able to view family profiles, nothing felt right. After learning more about Snowflakes we felt like God was calling us in this direction."
