For those of you that do not know, I am unable to have children of my own. I had both of my ovaries removed earlier on in life due to cancer, so my body has no way of making an egg of its own. I knew after my last ovary was removed that it would make this process of having a child a lot more difficult, but I didn't understand how hard it would be.
The option moving forward for us is to undergo IVF with egg donation. The most unexpected thing about this process is the financial side. The total costs of our IVF will be around $28, 000!! Austin and I had been saving up knowing that we would want to start a family soon, but we had no idea that it would be that much. Unfortunately for us, our insurance does not cover much of anything.
Luckily for us, our families are helping us as much as they can. We are also doing a yard sale to try and help raise some money (every little bit helps!!) However much you feel lead to donate, we appreciate it!!! No gift is too small!! If you can't help financially, we ask that you please pray that every step along the way is successful!
Thank you in advance for helping us as we pursue our dream of starting our family! We love y'all so much! God bless!
