Help Tayler get a sibling!

In 2002 Amanda met her future husband Sean while attending Howard Payne in Texas, sparks flew and they knew that they were in it for the long haul. On December 21st, 2003 before everyone they knew they pledged their love for one another. Having children was something that they each felt very strongly for and decided that they wanted a big family, they however weren't prepared for the long journey that they were about to face. Right after the two met Sean was diagnosed with testicular cancer, and after the removal of one of his testicles and radiation he given a clean bill of health. Amanda however had uterine fibroids removed at the age of 17, only to find out years later that she has Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and Endometriosis. They were told their chances of having children was 20-30% with their combined fertility issues. Yet a miracle happened in September 2005 when they found out they were  7 1/2 weeks pregnant. On April 7th, 2006 Tayler Ray Rammel came into this world full of curiosity and surrounded by love. In April 2008 the family made the trek form Texas to Washington and fell in love with the area. They formed new friendships and strengthened their bonds as a family, they took Tayler to soccer, gymnastics, camping, they taught him to be respectful and encouraged his always curious personality, they gave him unconditional love. However in the back of picture is the thought of other children. Last year the family decided to change their lives and became more active and started eating healthier, Amanda lost 50 pounds that could have a positive impact with her PCOS. Sean works hard to help support their family often times picking up extra shifts or late hours. Amanda watches her friends kids, mine included, sometimes working days on end, from before the sun rises until after it sets some days. Amanda and Sean show my kids the same love and compassion that they show Tayler, I never have to worry that my kids are not being looked after whenever I am at work. I want to return my utmost gratitude and ask for your help. Currently Amanda is seeing a fertility Dr, receiving hormones shots that give her pregnancy symptoms, getting ultrasounds sometimes twice in a week, and blood work, she monitors her temperature daily and tracks her cycles. This last cycle they tried a round of IUI, that bypasses the cervix to put the sperm right into the uterus, but the doctor doesn't think it will work and that they will need IVF to put the fertilized egg into her uterus. Not only does this mean that it will take more shots and ultrasounds and trips to seattle but a round of IVF also runs between $15000 and $20000, unfortunately this is not covered by their insurance. Anything raised would go directly to doctor bills and help bring this dream to life, would you help me give this family the greatest gift?

Thank you, D'Arcy
