We are Terrance and Melissa Boyd and we are raising money so that we can adopt. Please take a moment to read our story and help us make our dreams come true.
My husband and I have been married for 4 years; shortly after we got married we started trying to grow our family. In 2012 my husband and I found out that we were expecting and we couldn't have been more excited. Our fairytale life just kept getting better, I already had a loving husband, a beautiful home, and amazing pets, and to us we would now have everything. Sadly a couple months into our pregnancy we found out that we had miscarried. Our hearts were broken, but the doctors told us that miscarriage is very normal and that we could keep trying.
A year went by and I started to get worried, so I went back to the doctor and they ran a few tests. Once we got the test results back our doctor referred us to a local fertility specialist. We found out that I had diminishing ovarian reserve, so I didn't have the normal egg quality of someone in there mid 20's. We started out with a fertility treatment called IUI; we did 3 rounds of IUI and on the third round my body was no longer responding to the medication to help grow my eggs. Our doctor told us that she no longer recommended continuing with IUI and that if we wanted to continue with fertility treatment that using a donor eggs would be our best option. My husband and I took out a large loan in order to continue our dream of growing our family. We selected our egg donor and created 5 embryos. We did 2 rounds of IVF using 2 embryos both times; unfortunately both rounds of IVF did not work for us. At that time we only have one embryo left and our doctor was not recommending that we transfer the last embryo using my body, she suggested using a surrogate. We knew that this would bring additional costs that we didn't have. My sister offered to carry a baby for us and we found a wonderful organization called Baby Quest who helped us with a lot of the additional fees. We recently found out that our IVF transfer with our surrogate did not work and my husband and I were very sad. We knew that our infertility journey was over and that adoption was our next step.
My husband and I have expanded every resource possibly to try and grow our family and we really need your help to adopt the child to complete our family, please help us make our dreams come true.
