Then by the grace of God, in early 2016 Helen came across an ad on facebook for a doctor who described the symptoms she was having. In the short span of a few months , we found out she had uterine cancer. To get rid of the cancer, she would need a full hysterectomy. Our dreams of starting a family fell away in an instant, and she headed into surgery in May 2016 and came home with our ever faithful Husky was always by her side guarding her as she recovered.
The surgery and treatments were successful, and afterwards the doctors declared Helen free of cancer. And while we were immensely thankful, we were also crushed we would never be able to have a baby together. Although our ever faithful Husky was always by her side guarding her as she recovered.
Then, from Helen’s family in the Philippines came a ray of hope. Her brother and his wife were pregnant. Having 3 children of their own already that they were struggling to provide for, and knowing how much we wanted to have a baby, talk of adoption began.
Little Henry is growing healthily, and is due in April. As you may know though, fertility treatments, cancer treatments and adoption are all significant expenses. Humbly, we are asking for your help to bring Henry here after he is born, and start our family.
We have saved as much as we can but costs are exceeding our original expectations. We appreciate any amount you can give. Every little bit helps and all the funds collected will go to the adoption of Henry and associated costs such as citizenship paperwork and lawyer fees. From us to you, thank you so much for your support.
