Baby Forakis

Hey everyone! My wife Tiff and I have been happily married for 10 years this March. During this past decade we have been unable to have children due to a fused pelvic kidney and are unable to carry children of our own.

We know that families are the greatest blessing from God and the most important calling on this earth. We are willing to do whatever it takes to grow our family. After years of saving, consultations with doctors and specialists, we have decided to grow our family through In Vitro using a surrogate and later adoption. 

A few months back, our dear friend Hollie offered us the greatest gift that could ever be given. A way to have a baby. She is going to be our surrogate and we just can't express in words the gratitude we have for her.

In Vitro, and surrogacy are very expensive, and are not covered by insurance, so we are asking for help so that we can share our love with a child of our own. ANY size donation is greatly appreciated! This money will go towards our In Vitro fee $30,000, home study fee, attorney fee, mandatory counseling, testing, adoption fees and other miscellaneous fees totaling  over $50,000. We have saved up more than half of whats needed and are just trying to raise the last $10k so that we can continue moving forward with this process.

We love and adore every one of you. If you are unable to donate, your thoughts, prayers, and support will still help tremendously. Please share this link and know that we love all of you.


PS. Please let us know if you have any interest or questions about the possibility of being a surrogate for us, as we would love to have more children down the road.
