$5,000 Goal

Support for individuals experiencing infertility, pregnancy loss, foster care, and adoption.

Who We Are.  Patiently Waiting is a 100% volunteer run infertility and adoption nonprofit organization. We are here to support those going through infertility, pregnancy loss, and adoption. 

Our Mission.  Our mission is to share resources, information and provide biblical support for those going through the journey of infertility, adoption and miscarriage.  

What We Do. Patiently Waiting provides education and support for couples and individuals experiencing infertility, pregnancy loss, adoption, and/or foster care. It was founded 15 years ago as a small support group, and over the years has grown into a thriving and active organization. Patiently Waiting offers monthly support groups for adoptive parents and persons facing infertility challenges, parenting support groups, book clubs, attachment training, an annual adoption/infertility retreat, and educational and training seminars on topics relating to adoption, infertility, and foster care. 

Adoption Grants.  Patiently Waiting is proud to be partnering with the Adoption is Love Fund in 2021. Together, we are offering three $1,000 grants to qualified families to help cover adoption expenses. Interested in learning more? Adoptive parents must be MN residents, have a completed home study, and have not had the child placed in their home yet. Details and application can be found at

 Virtual Support Groups. The majority of our support groups, book club, attachment training, and other events are offered virtually.  We are still able to support the adoption and infertility community through our virtual events--in fact, having virtual support groups has also allowed to us to reach even more people in need who were previously unable to attend in person due to distance or other obligations.   

One on One Support.  Patiently Waiting also offers one on one support to anyone who is not yet ready or able to attend our support groups.  If you or someone you know needs support, we will find a safe space to talk with you.  Adoption put on hold? Waiting for a match during a pandemic? Infertility treatment stopped?  We are here to talk with you and support you during this time.

Racial Awareness Book Club.  Patiently Waiting hosts a monthly racial awareness book club, where we  discuss topics, books, current events, and lived experiences of racism.  This book club is open to anyone, whether they have a personal experience with adoption or not. 

Attachment Training and Webinars.  Patiently Waiting is proud to offer free and personalized attachment training with Trish Thacker, MSW, LICSW.  The attachment training includes an exclusive six-part webinar series, created for Patiently Waiting, and live question and answer sessions with Trish Thacker.  This format allows attendees to watch the webinars at their convenience and then seek personalized advice from Trish Thacker during the virtual question and answer sessions.  Learning about attachment is incredibly important for adoptive parents and adoptees and the information provided by Trish Thacker is invaluable.  Your support of Patiently Waiting allows us to continue to offer this service at no charge to our community. Check out the webinars at our YouTube page: 

Wrap Around Care.  Patiently Waiting is launching a new wrap around care program starting in 2022.  This program will provide gift baskets to people who have experienced a recent loss (such as through miscarriage or failed adoption) as well as to foster parents.  Do you know someone who is struggling with infertility, miscarriage, or is an fantastic foster parent in need of a little support? Patiently Waiting's new wrap around care program will provide gift baskets to those in need.  So often, it is difficult to know how to support those going through adoption and/or infertility.  This is a concrete way in which you can show them your support! We will be taking nominations of people in need.  Check out our facebook page for more details about this new program launching in 2022!

Join us.  Are you interested in attending one of our support groups, seminars, book clubs, or retreats? Would you like to volunteer for a growing organization with passionate people who have been through infertility, foster care, miscarriage, and/or adoption?  Contact us at or follow us on Facebook to get involved! 

Prayer. We are praying for your safety, security, and support during this time.

Thank you.  With our prayers, thank you for your donation and support.  We are building a community for Minnesota families in need of support as they face the troubled waters of infertility and pregnancy loss, or as they walk the path of adoption and foster care.  You are not alone!
