Kieklak Family Adoption

In the summer of 2014, I was diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Failure. One of the major side effects of this condition is irreversible infertility.

Now we’ve gone trough the process of embryo adoption!

The Lord put adoption on both of our hearts long ago, even before we were married. At the outset, we never could have imagined how it would shape our lives and our relationship with God. We’ve been so blessed by family, friends, and the church body as we’ve walked this road. We’re now expecting twin boys in April, and we welcome your prayers for their continued growth.

  1. Hi. Kudos for all of you. Please keep us informed. We care. Take care, dory

  2. Dear Steve & Lisa: John and I were neighbors of the Pasley family in Jonesboro – Cara can explain us. To the two of you, please accept our sincere congratulations on your adoption process. We adopted our son, Jeffrey, at age 5 days when he was released from the Hospital, into our arms. He and his wife adopted a little boy at birth, almost eight years ago. We all have an idea of what you are going through. May you be as blessed as we have been, and our son and his family have been.

    I’ll try to send a separate message to Matt and Cara on FINALLY learning the gender of their little treasures.

    Always, take care, dory Muir, Cherokee Village, AR

    1. Dory- thanks! Your family sounds like an amazing picture of adoption!!
