01 Nov We are celebrating 11 years this month!
God gave us 20 babies, on the way – as his Gift to us!
This picture is of our daughter Elisha Lancaster 5 years ago, she is now 16. She is holding up the Seattle Times article from 2008 when Embryo Adoption Services of Cedar Park was founded. Elisha was adopted as a frozen embryo after being frozen for 4 years at 2 cells. I retold this story Saturday evening at the Legacy Institute event honoring Dr. James Dobson’s life’s work. Spreading the good news about embryo adoption was but one thing we are grateful to him for. Without him, there would be no anniversaries! Thank you, Dr. Dobson. Also, without Pastor Joe Fuiten and Cedar Park Church, this would have never happened either! Thanks to all at our Cedar Park Church family! Cedar Park

Jenna & Jonathan are telling their miracle story!
She’s due at Christmastime for a Christmas baby.
In Jenna’s words….
My husband and I had been trying to start our family for almost a year and a half when we found out that we would never be able to conceive a child naturally on our own. Only a couple months and tests later, we were told that the only way we might have a biological child was through IVF with ICSI, but our odds were ever so slim with our male-factor infertility and secondary female-factor infertility diagnoses. We didn’t feel any peace in our hearts that God was leading us forward in the direction of biological children, so we began to pursue other options. Just two weeks after our decision to look into other options, and almost exactly one year ago, my husband found embryo adoption and Embryo Adoption Services of Cedar Park online while researching….
Dr. James Dobson Award Ceremony Highlights
From The Legacy Institute Dinner Saturday November 9th
We had a wonderful evening in Bellevue, WA as leaders from the Pacific Northwest gave Dr. James Dobson a Lifetime Achievement Award. We learned about embryo adoption through his radio program and at the time was with Focus on the Family. He has since founded Family Talk: Dr. James Dobson
Thank you Dr. Dobson for your influence that led to embryo adoption being possible for families. We will be forever grateful!
We had a lot of fun with our friends at the this inspiring event. Several organizations gave talks about how Dr. Dobson changed everything in their lives, and how God multiplied the works!
