Help Tom and Torie with IVF

Torie and Tom have been actively trying to start a family of their own since 2010. Torie has battled aggressive endometriosis for her whole mature life.  They have met with two adoption agencies, four fertility clinics, three different gynecologists, and an acupuncturist. Torie has endured more than twenty vaginal ultrasounds, two hysterosalpingograms, one saline salpingogram, an invasive laparoscopy, and many hormone treatments from both holistic and pharmaceutical perspectives.  Finally, she has undergone three intrauterine insemination procedures and one in-vitro fertilization.  Despite all of this, she has never become pregnant and, still, doctors have maintained confidence that she can get pregnant and carry a baby to term. This last round of in-vitro yielded just one viable embryo and doctors chose to transfer that on day 3 instead of day 5 to avoid degeneration risks.  Tom and Torie felt that little "bryo" (embryo) was finally going to be that chance.  This last Monday they got a negative result back on our blood test.  It would be normal to sink back, give up, and to release the hope of ever becoming a mother, but Torie remains positive.  She says that if this doesn't work, she would be happy caring for foster children (as hard as that would be), adopting a baby, or simply to care for animals.  "I have watched Torie with my kids and she is a natural mother.  She took on the challenge of being a mom to my kids even within the turmoil of my divorced environment.  I have watched her take care of our nephew as if he was her own.  She was born to watch over and protect.  She was born to share her love, to teach, to raise and to inspire.  I want nothing more than to see her be able to pursue that dream." - Tom Thank you for taking to the time to read their story. They are so grateful for any donation to help with another in-vitro fertilization. I'm grateful for the pleasure of knowing these two, and like so many others, I'm so excited to help them complete their family and become the amazing parents they're meant to be.
