Baby Wright IVF Journey

We struggled with this idea for a long time thinking that it would appear selfish and embarrassing to ask for help, but this is the kind of journey in life where you need to lean on your village.

We are blessed with so many friends and family already reaching out about ways to help whether that be financial, prayers, love or encouragement. So we decided to set this up as a way for those who are able and wanting to help with the financial side of our journey. Any and all forms of support are so appreciated. 

Tom and I have been trying to have a baby for about 2.5 years. After exhausting all the less invasive options, we are now faced with moving on to IVF as our means of having a baby. We will be proceeding with this stage at Seattle Reproductive Medicine (SRM). 

My health history has been a tumultuous one. As a high school freshman I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. After medications failed, I was hospitalized for an extended period of time and ended up with numerous surgeries over several years. The surgeries left behind scar tissue which is now believed to be the reason for our infertility issues. Everything else looks good so we are considered to be great candidates for a successful IVF. 

Tom and I have been saving for this process which will total around $30,000+. It is surely a burden, but the end reward will be great and worthwhile. It is humbling to ask for help, but we deeply appreciate any support that comes our way. 

I will be documenting and sharing our journey through a blog if anyone wishes to follow along. Blog Link:
