WHO ARE WE?
We are the Mc Kenzies! My name is Julia Grace and my husband is Evan. We love living on our little hobby farm and have a passion for the Lord and His creation!
Our Saint Bernard, Sybil, miraculously fell into our lives and we're so thankful that she did! (Read on to learn how!) She reminds me so much of Nana from Peter Pan! She's an amazing mama to her pups and loves our baby, Hope. We are so thankful for her gentleness and affection.
We're on a mission to raise awareness of frozen embryo adoption and fund Christians seeking an embryo adoption!
The path God led us on that brought us to this place, founding this breeding business with this philanthropic purpose at the forefront, was entirely His own design.
My beloved and I wed in 2018. We soon became pregnant, and then miscarried. With child again, and then without. As this grim trend ensued, interspersed with prideful denial of reality and an eventual perceived inability to conceive altogether, we began considering "our options," as we so dreadfully called them.
My degree is in biology, so when I accidentally stumbled upon (or more accurately, when God willed me to learn about) embryo adoption, the biologist in me was rather intrigued. I immediately plummeted into research, feeling excitement for the prospect of carrying and delivering children--while still being able to participate in the redemption and healing that is inherent in adoption--then we were immediately met with great frustration at the financial burden we would be faced with. Still urgently, our knowledge that there were over half a million Snowflakes® waiting to be given a chance to grow gnawed at our hearts.
Our answer nearly fell on our doorstep when family friends, who had initially intended to breed but were called away to missions, offered us their purebred Saint Bernard. She would not only fill our house with love and comfort (two things we were in need of more than ever), but also supply the solution to our financial barrier, thus enabling us to have the means to pursue frozen embryo adoption.
