Growing a family (IVF)

In the beginning we imagined this would be pretty simple, having a baby for the opposite sex in most situations is a trial and error. With effort and a few fertility treatment centers my wife and I have learned the truth behind the difficulties of conceiving a baby and being a lesbian couple (We do understand IVF is not just for LGBT, just explaining our story). 
     This process started 6 months ago (which I know in many cases cannot be compared to other couples trying for years) but it began with research. Majority of the sites give an estimate but in overall they recommend you reach out to a doctor/clinic to get more information on cost and insurance coverage. We did just that and found the haunting truth about how unbelievably expensive IVF treatments were and the lack of coverage majority insurances have. We set a plan, 1 year to really focus on saving up and achieving our family. Along these last couple months with the pandemic and my wife's recent rotation with the Army overseas the likely hood of achieving our goal is undeniably slim. Taya (my beautiful wife) and I have looked at other options (IUI, Traditional turkey base, etc.) but with what the doctors recommendation as well as research the likely percentage of IVF is outweighed by 20%. 
     My wife and I have a 5 year old son who came from a previous relationship and unfortunately due to adoption rights in the state of the bio mother we share custody non-legal rights over our son. Our goal in life is to have a large family, for both my wife and I we have dreamed of having a sibling for our son to grow with and we decided now was the time. My wife since I met her has dreamed of making a difference and she started with enlisting in the army 1 year ago. It was a hard transition in the beginning but now we have gotten accustomed to the military life and have our minds set on growing our family. 
     This page is for whatever help anyone in the world is able to give and to share the disheartening truth behind any family struggling with IVF cost. This reached goal amount is of course not a true desired amount as our family and us will be continuing to save for this process. 51501514_1601190674205646_r.jpegThis requested goal is to show everyone how much this process really cost and how hard families have to work to achieve IVF treatments.
