We Want to Start a Family

Matt and I are on a journey many do not understand. We have been trying to have a baby for the last two years. We have tried both ivf and iui, however I have begun menopause at the age of 35, and have low egg reserves. Sadly these procedures are not an option for us.

This has been a difficult decision to make, but we want to be parents so we have decided to move forward with a donor egg.

This procedure will cost upwards of $20,000. We will be able to get a loan to cover part of it, however we are asking for our friends and family to donate or possibly share our story with others.

We are excited to see where the next step on this journey will take us. Thank you in advance for your support and for allowing us to share our story with you.
