Lydon Family Dream

We started this GoFundMe for our dear friends Chris and Ruthie who need our help more than ever as they embark on a challenging chapter in their story of infertility, loss and heartbreak. 

Anyone that knows Chris and Ruthie knows the heartbreak they have faced over the past four years. They have been on an incredibly difficult  journey and have endured more loss and tragedy  than any two people should ever have to. They are now facing yet another chapter in this journey, they have been told after years of loss and unsuccessful IVF that they are unable to carry their own child. So now they face the unimaginable reality of accepting the fact that in order to make their dreams of having a family, they need  to partner with a surrogate. Partnering with surrogate will allow them to realize their dreams of having a family, no two people deserve it more than they do. 

Ruthie has been an advocate for infertility and pregnancy loss for years and I hope this story further advances that cause.

Surrogacy is an extremely costly venture, so any amount helps and would be more than appreciated.
