Most of the time I would assume people are wanting a light answer, or a quick answer. How do you tell people that you are struggling with infertility and that the choice of children is not necessarily up to you? How do you involve people in such private deatails of your life? How do you ask friends, family, or even strangers for help? Here's our brief story:
Over two years went by and every month we still weren't pregnant. It was hearkbreaking. We decided we needed to get some help and to figure out what was keeping us from starting our family. We visited with a fertility specialist and in April 2014 we were officially diagnosed with infertility. After several more doctor visits, several rounds of testing, and even a surgery we were finally given an answer, a name to what we were dealing with.
Imagine being told that you will never be able to have kids the "normal" or "natural" way and the only way you will be able to have your own children will be to go through IVF. Imagine being kept from being a parent just because of how much money is in your bank. In 2006 the average cost of IVF in the U.S is $12,400, and our procedure will be upwards of $15,000 dollars. None of which is covered by insurance and all has to be paid before they will even begin the process.
Our dream in this life is to be parents. To have little feet running down the hall and to be able to look at a little face and see ourselves and our own features in them. To be able to teach about love, giving, and compassion and many other things.
Now the hard part, as I mentioned above how do you ask friends, family, and even strangers for help? We have chosen to go public to help us achieve our dreams. We aren't much on asking people for things especially if we thought we could do it all ourself, but we need financial help and if nothing else we need your prayers.
Donations to our cause can be made by name or anonymous. No amount is too small. Help us achieve our dreams. Feel free to share our story on your page. God Bless :)
