We have been trying to get pregnant for the past four years.

Since we got married, we get asked all the time when we’ll have kids. And we smile and politely say, “Not yet,” or “hopefully soon.” But in reality, this is a hard, painful question for us to answer. And it gets harder to answer every year we don’t get pregnant.

For the past two years, we have been exploring various fertility options with a number of traditional and naturopathic doctors. We went through five failed intrauterine inseminations (IUI’s), tried acupuncture, headstands, fertility-boosting products and foods—you name it, we’ve probably tried it. And yet, our desire to start a family of our own continues, despite these failed attempts.

Which leads us here.

At the end of March 2019, we met with an in-vitro fertilization (IVF) doctor to discuss our options.

For those who aren’t familiar, IVF is the process of retrieving a woman’s eggs, to have them fertilized and grown in an embryology lab. Once a fertilized embryo passes a certain stage of initial growth in the lab, it is then placed in a woman’s uterus to, God willing, mature into a baby.

And IVF is what is next in our journey to start a family.

Our biggest challenge is that the IVF process is expensive, must be paid in full upfront, and is rarely covered by insurance companies. And unfortunately, our insurance does not cover any IVF services.

We need to raise around $29,000 to cover the costs in order to make our dream of starting a family, a reality.

The breakdown of costs:
·      $2,000 is for pre-treatment testing, bloodwork and baseline scans
·      $5,000-8,000 is for medications to prepare for the egg retrieval
·      $600 is for the anesthesia used during the egg retrieval procedure
·      $20,200 is for the IVF cycle, which includes the egg retrieval procedure, fertilization and monitoring, testing, growth in the embryology lab and embryo transfer.

The cost of this procedure is overwhelming and intimidating, but we could not be more excited for this next adventure and are eager to start right away.

We would be so, so blessed and humbled by any financial support you can gift us. If you’re not in position to support us financially, would you share this page and join us in prayer?

Thank you for being a part of this journey with us. We appreciate you more than we could ever say and are eternally grateful for any support you feel led to give.

David and Jenny

The past few days have been overwhelming in the best way. We are so humbled, blessed, and appreciative of everyone's generosity, encouragement, and support.

Because of everyone's amazing offline and online donations, we are able to lower our GoFundMe goal from $28,000 to $24,000. Every single penny and prayer is making a huge difference and we are more grateful than we can express.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
