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

Who We Are.  Patiently Waiting is a 100% volunteer run 501c3 infertility and adoption nonprofit organization. We are here to support those going through infertility, pregnancy loss, adoption and foster care. 

Our Mission.  Our mission is to provide resources and education through Christ centered support for those going through the journey of infertility, adoption and foster care. 

What We Do. Patiently Waiting provides education and support through online and in person meetings and events.  One of our favorite events to host are retreats.  Founded in 2006 as a small support group. Over the years has grown into a non-profit organization which was established in 2014. Patiently Waiting along with a new partner organization will offer more support group 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 2022 and 2023. Together, we are offering grants to qualified families to help cover adoption expenses. Interested in learning more?  Details and application can be found at  

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 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. Reach out to for more details.

Support/ Care Baskets.  Patiently Waiting recently started a support/care basket program. 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?  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 with our new form coming soon. You can also email for more details.  

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!
