My husband, Joshua is an ophthalmology resident at the University of Kentucky and even though he is a doctor he is actually still in training and we are still paying off his large amount of medical school debt. I (Rebecca) am a veterinary technician and we are both working hard to save for our much needed fertility treatments.
We have health insurance but unfortunately they do not cover the cost for anything fertility related, plus they do not even have a reproductive endocrinologist in network. We have found a shared risk program at a highly recognized institute in Cincinnati. They offer 6 IVF cycles for the price of 2.25 cycles and if we do not have a child in our arms by the end then we will get 70% of our money back. We are hoping to raise a minimum of $12,000.
I want more than anything to be able to feel the joy of holding my baby and even experience the pains of childbirth. I want to see all the things I love about my husband in our child. He is going to make a wonderful father and I can't wait to be able to tell him that it is going to happen. We have hope that someday there will be a little baby Evans in our arms. However, in the event Joshua and I are unable to get pregnant we will use the refund for adoption fees.
In the future we will have the ability to pay it forward and help give other couples the chance at having a baby with IVF, but today we are asking you to help give us a chance. Any donations are greatly appreciated, we know there is strength in numbers and every little bit helps. If you are unable to donate at this time please help spread the word. This process has been stressful and heartbreaking for us and while we continue to think positively we ask that you add us to your prayers.
We could use all of your support and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your part in our journey to have a baby.
All things are possible if you believe. Mark 9:23
Although we love our fur babies, we want to have human babies, too.
Thank you for taking the time to read our story. Joshua and I appreciate any way that you are able to help us. Thank you again for your kindness, Rebecca.
