In January 2006, two soul mates met each other on a blind Date. Lala (Lauren) and Steve fell madly in love, got engaged, and planned their wedding for Oct 30, 2006.
(Lauren) In August of 2006, we found out we were pregnant! We and the Grandparents were so excited! Unfortunately, we lost this angel on Sept 20, 2006 at 11 weeks along.
A little Backstory:
In 2003, I had a very complicated surgery to remove a football sized cyst from my uterus, along with my left ovary and fallopian tube. I was also diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome).
We got pregnant again in 2007, but lost this angel on April 15, 2007 .
We have been unable to get pregnant since then, and have had many tests to figure out what kind of fertility treatment to help us start a family.
We did 3 rounds of Clomid (fertility drug that helps ovulation) on 2013 and 2014. It did not work for us.
We have several thousand in bills to pay JUST for the testing we had done. We also would like to try an IUI or IVF to conceive our miracle baby - We are both 39 now and time is ticking. If we are not able to conceive a child, we will use any money collected to adopt a child, either private or through foster care.
All we want in the world is to be parents - I work with children for a living (Baby/child photographer) and have dreamed of being a mother my entire life. It's so hard to see everyone is a parent EXCEPT me.
Please help our dream come true! Thank you!
