When Amber and Jeremy married, they knew they were ready to grow their family and have a baby. Amber spent much of her young adult life baby sitting and dreamed of becoming a mother from a young age. Her passion to be a mother only flourished as a nanny. As they tried to have a child, they faced many roadblocks and challenges. They both were diagnosed with infertility but continued to fight and exhaust every option available to them. It was during this time Amber realized the only thing she wanted was to be a mommy. It was in that moment they decided to pursue adoption.
This decision left them with great peace. With their families support behind them, Amber and Jeremy decided to work with Everlasting in September of 2016. While the wait felt agonizing, it was not long before Amber and Jeremy reached out to us about a potential but challenging birth mom situation they were presented with in May. Amber initially communicated with birth mom, Katy, and she just KNEW in her heart that this was their birthmom and their baby. Amber and Jeremy continued to get to know Katy and felt bonded and connected from the start. Their hearts constantly felt love and gratefulness for not only their birthmom but their genuine connection. Less than a month after they connected, and only 10 months after deciding to enlist Everlasting’s help, Amber and Jeremy welcomed their baby boy, Canaan Reign, to the world on May 31st. Canaan was 20 ¾ inches and weighed 7lbs 11oz. We know that battling infertility combatted how difficult the wait was, but we are certain that every moment was worth it. Congratulations from everyone at Everlasting to Amber & Jeremy on your amazing little boy. Canaan is beautiful, strong and as his name means, he is truly the promised land.
