Aaron and I have been trying to conceive with medical help since January 2015. 2 and a half years. I know compared to some couples that also struggle with infertility that doesn't seem like a long time but to someone trying to conceive for 2 1/2 years... ,901 days to be exact seem like forever.. Yes, we are still "young" but saving up 17 thousand dollars takes some time and so does the actually procedure.
I want more than anything to be able to be a mom. I have always wanted kids and when Aaron and I got married we knew what we wanted. Only to find out it wouldn't be so easy. I'm so grateful though for our journey because it has taught us a lot of things as a couple. It's taught us to love each other even more and taken a whole other meaning to "through good and bad" it has showed us what being patient truly is, and taught us to not take anything we have for granted. On September 10 2016 we learned a harder lesson when my grandpa passed due to complications after his surgery. He knew more than anything I wanted to have kids right away so they would grow up knowing him and he told me to wait (which I didn't, I started trying immediately because that was our thing... he would tell me no wait sydney you have plenty of time and I would be the stubborn one and say "I'm going to do what I want papa" lol god I miss him) I wanted my kids to be able to know him more than anything and it breaks my heart thinking if I had the money, or if I didn't struggle with infertility that my papa would of been able to meet my kids and be the best great grandfather they would ever have. Life is short and everyday isn't promised to us and THAT is why I decided I'm going to create a go fund me. Aaron and I have saved up in the last year about $4,500 which doesn't seem like a lot in a year but the rest of our savings have gone to thousands of dollars in treatments and medication and appointments which insurance doesn't cover. we have exhausted our savings trying to make our dream come true. Even though WE CAN afford the everyday essentials for living and anything our future little baby would need, coming up with 17,000 for IVF overnight has been a struggle. I know some will judge and some will say hurtful things about us creating this account but After spending almost half our infertility savings and leaving 4,500 to spend on IVF... asking for help is our last resort, we have tried countless procedures and medications that are not working and we have no other options left because trust me I would of tried. Of course Aaron and I are continuing to save and add to our IVF piggy bank. Aaron and I want more than anything to become parents to future baby finch and we would appreciate any donation wether it be $1 or $10. Even if you decide not to donate I am still so thankful to have such supportive friends and such a supportive family along the way. I appreciate anyone who reads this post and takes time out of their day to listen to a few words aaron and I wanted to share. We are so blessed with the life we live but would be even more blessed being able to share our home and life with our little baby and are asking if you could help make our baby dream come true. We love all of you and are SO thankful for any help.
