Angela and Sal married in 2015, after knowing each other for over 25 years. Sal stepped up and became a father to Antonio, Angela's son, who is now 10 years old.
One thing that Angela and Sal agreed upon before getting married was that they both wanted to have kids and expand their newly created family. Tony has been asking for a little brother or sister for years now. There are only so many Legos or video games that he wants to play with his parents. He is often lonely, relying on his first cousin Luciano for the sibling companionship he does not have.
Sal comes from a family of three brothers, growing up together proved for an amazing childhood- even though those boys would make their mom crazy! All three brothers remain close, and Sal is now a proud uncle to his brothers two children. Sal is still a big kid at heart- as all kids love him and his fun personality. Sal has wanted his own kids forever- and has found so much joy in helping raise Antonio- expanding the family would be a dream.
Angela comes from a family of four children- where now her siblings are also her best friends. Her family is very supportive- always being there for her through all the struggles of being a single parent. It has been a wish of theirs to see Angela have a child with an amazingly supportive partner- that she has found in Sal.
Angela and Sal have been trying for over 2 years to concieve and expand their family without luck. They had three medical insemination attempts at Kaiser without results. The next step would be to try IVF, which is what the fertilty specialists are recommending. After the initial appointment with the fertility physician at Pacific Fertility, she agreed that they are perfect candidates, and should begin the process immediately. Unfortunately, most insurance plans do not cover IVF treatments. This is the case for Angela and Sal- so the process comes with a hefty pricetag- about $30k after all the medications, labs, genetic testing, and procedures.
Angela and Sal are asking for the help and support of their amazing community of family and friends to help make this dream a reality.
