PARSIPPANY, N.J., April 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Celebrating National Infertility Awareness Week, April 24-30, 2011, Ferring Pharmaceuticals Inc. is honoring three lucky families who won its 2010 My Little Miracle Essay Contest for their inspirational stories about overcoming their struggle with infertility during their journey to parenthood.  The contest celebrates the birth of children who were conceived using Ferring's prescription products, MENOPUR® (menotropins for injection, USP) and/or BRAVELLE® (urofollitropin for injection, purified).  The grand prize winner, Jennifer Adams Buckhouse of Colorado Springs, CO, received a $10,000 education fund, the second-place contest winner, Deena Kobell of Philadelphia, received an education fund of $7,500 and the third-place winner, Kristin Bedinghaus of St. Petersburg, FL, won a $5,000 education fund.

The journey to parenthood for the grand prize winner, Jennifer Adams-Buckhouse was long and arduous.  After two failed pregnancies and a son who died in infancy, the U.S. Army couple's fierce determination to never give up on their dream of conceiving a child finally paid off.  Thanks to fertility treatments, Jennifer and her husband Todd are the proud parents of two little miracles.

"My husband and I were thrilled to learn that we were the grand prize winner of this year's My Little Miracle essay contest," said Jennifer.  "We hope families who are struggling to conceive will read our story and learn that there is hope.  We are truly blessed to have two beautiful children and now we have a head start on their education, thanks to this wonderful program from Ferring."

"In recognition of National Infertility Awareness Week, we want to reinforce our enduring commitment to the millions of couples who struggle to build a family, and encourage them to never give up their dream of achieving parenthood," said Joy Lewin, Business Un
