Mel's IVF fund

Hi all, I'm Mel. I have set up this gofund me to help raise funds for a goal life dream to come true. I will tell you a bit about Joe and I. We met in 2003 I was still in school and joe had just turnt 21 we fell in love straight away. We got engaged 2 years laters and married in 2007. In 2006 I found out I had PCOS as I was having bad cramps and was very sick. I was Referred to see a gynecologist and he was great, he got me to lose weight which was hard. He ran a lot of tests tried new things put me on tablets and flushed out my tubes in all of that I still couldn't get pregnant. He said my only option is IVF we freaked when we heard those 3 little letters as we didn't or don't have the money. So we went away and thought about it and it took till 2014 to save enough money to try our first round of IVF unfortunately the first round didn't work we tried again and again didn't work we tried one more time as that's all we could afford and again didn't work. It's been 7 months since our last attempt and we both feel emotional to talk about it as we had big hopes and dreams it would work. I'm almost 29 and joes 33 and still childless, yes I know people say we are still young but a family is something both of us have dreamed about. We have had our life struggles and our marriage struggles but we come out on top just not with children. We have 7 nieces and nephews between us who we adore like our own, we have friends children who we have also adopted as our nieces and nephews. We love children, we have so much love to give. I work as a Family Day Care Educator for the past 5.5 years and I have given each one of the little ones I have looked after so much love that I call them my own children, it's hard seeing them grow up under my own eyes and they take their first step or first word I get excited just as much as their mum, but once again they aren't our children. I feel an empty void in my life that I'm destined to be a mum and joe a dad but we need help. What we are asking is if you could please donate just a few dollars to our cause and hopefully get us closer to our dream we would appreciate it forever.
