In December 2010, three other women and I who all attended a support group decided to organize an infertility awareness conference during National Infertility Awareness Week to support couples in the Kansas City area who were struggling to build their family. We hoped for at least 50 attendees and were blown away when 200+ showed up! We decided KCIA was here to stay. We began the process to become an official nonprofit organization and planning the 2nd annual conference. The 2nd annual conference was also a success with 200+ attendees and even more involvement from various family building professionals. We are excited for our 3rd annual conference this April 27th. Registration is going very well, and our professional involvement has grown even more! Each year, word of our annual conference spreads, and this year we’ve received registrations from several couples outside the KC area…some even as far as 4 hours away! We hope each conference provides the attendees the necessary support and encouragement they need to not give up in their desire to grow their family. There are so many ways to build a family; we hope our conference educates our attendees of the many options available to them.
