When we married in July 2003 we started trying to have a baby right away. Keith was 28 and I was 27. We thought like every other couple that this baby journey would be a piece of cake but before we knew it 7 years of trying had past.
In February 2009 we went to the fertility clinic to find out if we might need some help or even if it was possible to have children. The doctor suggested doing a couple of rounds of IUI. On September 15, 2009 which was our 4th IUI try we found out we were pregnant. Talk about the happiest day of our lives!!! I did all the DO's and none of the DO NOT's; never missed a doctor's appointment. On January 8, 2010 our life was shattered when we lost Kati Elizabeth at 21 weeks with no warning. We were very thankful to be able to hold and get pictures of her, which we are sharing with you for our profile picture.
After 4 years we are very ready to try again. Now that Keith is 40 and I am 38 we figured this would be our last shot at having a baby so we spoke with our fertility doctor and she stated our best chance is to do IVF. The cost difference between IUI and IVF as some of you know is HUGE. We have begun applying for IVF Grants and have our fingers crossed that we will be chosen.
As you can imagine over the past 11 years we have seen many friends and family have children and experienced the joy their little one has brought to them. We really desire to have a little one of our own. Please help us in our last shot at having a bundle of joy. Believe me when I say every little bit helps. You can donate directly through this page or if you would like to give a direct donation please feel free to message us.
Thank you so much again for taking the time to read our story.
