The final episode in this series where everyday people are sharing their everyday stories…about being adoptive parents, having been adopted, and/or are in the process currently. As well as fertility families who have and/or are seeking to conceive a child through Artificial Reproductive Therapies (A.R.T.).

These topics are not discussed often enough. Resources for such families are not readily promoted as much, yet there are a vast number available.

Today, you will hear Donna's story. She & Eddie knew God was calling them to adopt in 2007, but it wasn't until January 2010 that Michael became a Kirkwood. LIVE at 9AM (cst) on ExcellenceWorx Radio!

When you consider the fact that the world includes over 150 MILLION orphans, the call to adopt is one we should all support, embrace, and encourage - be it that we decide God is calling us to be adoptive parents, or that He has called a friend/family member (i.e., Donna's family).

No family should walk either road alone. "It takes a village to raise a child" is a simple and powerful truth.

Who are you encouraging, supporting, praying for, and providing for TODAY that is adopting or a fertility couple? THEY NEED YOU!


Denai Vaughn, Founder of ExcellenceWorx, and husband, Tim, are a fertility couple. Their daughter was conceived after months of shots, laparoscopies, a hysteroscopy, and many other bumps in the road. That was 2004. In 2011, they began the journey once more…and the road has been difficult.

This series is very near and dear to her heart because she is "living it", not just interviewing others about it.

Stay tuned to hear their progress and that of other couples, too.
