Thank you for giving us a shot!
We have been together since 2009. We met on New Years Eve and have been together ever since that night. Throughout our 8-year relationship, our love has grown to surpass any love imaginable.
Thanks to the 2016 Supreme Court Ruling, the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage.
As Justice Kennedy said, "No longer may this liberty be denied. No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”
Together, our love is stronger. Our nuptials will take place in the fall of 2018. Upon "sealing the deal" of our lasting bond with the vows of marriage, we are hoping to immediately begin the process of building a family. This task, however, does not come easy...
As two gay dads (and no uterus), the process of egg donation incluing the retrieval, surrogacy (including her OB appointments, lab testings, evaluations and screeings, hospital stays), genetic testing, IVF, implantation, etc... is going to be one hell of a money-pit. While we want nothing more in the world to become fathers of two, three, four... maybe even five kids, this process is not only long and stressful, but extremely expensive and not covered by insurance. Then, their comes the attorney fees, which play a major role in all of this.
Total costs average between $120k - $150k per go around. Maybe we shoot for twins the 1st time around? ;-)
We are asking for your help. We do not need dish-sets, kitchen appliances, bed sheets, a charcuterie board, champagne glasses, or any of the "traditional" wedding gifts. (BORING!!) .... We need the funds to help start our family. We are not greedy and will not be offended by even $.01 being donated. Every little bit is going to help our dreams come true of being the best Dad's to amazing children, who will be brought into this world with nothing but the most unconditional love and enlightenment on being the best little humans possible.
We cannot do this without your help. We are hoping to get this process started soon. Your blessings will be forever in our hearts. We thank you.
