Amanda & Jurry's Adoption Fund

Hello, and thank you for looking at our page! Our names are Amanda & Jurry Jensema. For over 3 years we have tried to start a family of our own, but unfortunately have been unsuccessful. After a year of trying we sought out help from an Infertility Specialist. We underwent 6 medicated infertility treatment cycles. Our insurance did not cover any of the  costs of medication or the treatments so we had to pay 100% out of pocket. After receiving the horrible news that the sixth procedure did not work as well, we had a heart to heart and decided that maybe we weren't meant to bring a child into this world. Instead, we were meant to bring a child into our hearts who is in need of a family. That is where our adoption story begins. After overcoming the heartache of not being able to become pregnant, we became homestudy approved in May 2014. Our total cost for adoption when we become matched with a birth mom will be $28,000. Due to all the loans we took out to do the infertility treatment we are unable to acquire the rest that we need. We want to be parents and each day that passes it gets harder and harder. We need your help to make our dream, and the future grandparents dreams come true. Whether you are able to donate, please pass this on to your friends and family. Every penny will help get us to our ultimate goal of holding our son or daughter in our arms.
Will you help us in fullfilling this dream so we can become the best Mommy and Daddy we can be?
