The Pardo Surrogacy Fund

Thank you for taking the time to read our story. We truly appreciate your love, support, and prayers. We don't know what we would do without you. 
Andy and I have been together for 4 years; married almost 2 years and we're hoping to raise $25,000 to begin and complete the process to have a baby through a surrogate mother. We knew immediately that we wanted to have kids, but there was always a concern. Our concern was with my kidney transplant and that there could be an issue with me carrying a baby without harm to myself or the unborn baby. I've had two kidney transplants; one in December 1986 and the second in May 1995. It's been something I've always grown up with, but always thought of in the back of my mind thought, "will I ever be able to have kids?" After we met each other, it was love-at-first-site and I knew he was the one I've always dreamed of and wanted to start a family with. We dated for a little over a year and then we go engaged. A year after being engaged, we finally became husband and wife. I immediately went to my nephorologist asking about getting pregnant where I left very upset and disappointed because I was told that the decision is up to me, but he doesn't recomend me getting pregnant because 1) its a risk for kidney failure and/or 2)danger to the baby. Well, dispite the fact of my disappointment; I thought what right-minded person would put themselves and a baby at danger if given the choice? Because we want to raise a baby together and not put anyone in harms way, the risks weren't worth it to us. We're happy together, we want to raise a family together, and we knew our dreams weren't over. Andy and I discussed our options and here we are today, 21 months after deciding that surrogacy was our option asking for your help in making our dream come true to have a family.
With all our Love and appreciation,
Thank you in advance.
