Black Couple Speaks Up After Adopting a White Child

Many couples face the heartbreaking challenge of infertility, and sometimes the best option is to consider adoption. Sadie and Jarvis Sampson, a loving couple in their 40s, found themselves in this exact situation. Despite trying various methods to conceive, nature seemed to be working against them.

“We tried everything,” Sadie shared. “Ovulation tests, cycle tracking apps, fertility monitors, you name it. We even followed the unsolicited advice of friends, family, and strangers, but nothing seemed to work. Month after month, negative pregnancy tests became a painful routine. It felt like we needed help to fulfill our dream of becoming parents.”

After seeking medical assistance, Sadie was advised to lose weight before further fertility treatments could be considered. Taking this advice seriously, she underwent gastric bypass surgery and successfully shed 28 pounds. Her OB/GYN was thrilled with her progress, but still, the couple struggled to conceive.

“I always felt like I was born to be a mother,” Sadie recalled. “My surgeon assured me that I would be super fertile after the surgery, but to our disappointment, I still wasn’t pregnant. We reached a point of accepting that maybe we were meant to be the aunt and uncle to our nieces and godparents to our goddaughters.”

Feeling disheartened, they were on the verge of giving up when a friend suggested they consider fostering. Although hesitant at first, they decided to explore the option and spoke with a caseworker. Little did they know, their lives were about to change forever.

To their delight, the birth mother chose them to be the permanent parents of the baby they were fostering. Sadie couldn’t contain her excitement as she delivered the joyous news to her husband. “They want us to adopt the baby! We’re going to be parents!” she exclaimed.

The couple embraced the unexpected blessing and prepared for an independent adoption. The baby, born prematurely at 33 weeks, was just 4 pounds, 5 ounces. He fit comfortably in Jarvis’ hand and required tube feeding to support his development.

Overwhelmed with gratitude, Sadie and Jarvis shared their journey on social media. They posted pictures of themselves wearing T-shirts that read “families don’t have to match” and received an outpouring of support. Within days, they received assistance from kind-hearted individuals who generously provided the essential items they needed.

This heartwarming experience only marked the beginning of their parenthood journey. In 2021, Sadie and Jarvis welcomed twin girls into their family through embryo donation. The couple’s love knows no boundaries, and they are proud parents to three beautiful, adoring children.

Their story is a reminder that love and family transcend color or genetics. Despite the challenges they faced, Sadie and Jarvis never gave up on their dream of becoming parents. Their journey is filled with hope, resilience, and is a testament to the power of love.
