If you are familiar with our little family, you already know we love #AllThingsAdventure
, and living larger than life. We have shared many extraordinary memories over the years, but for the most part, we are an ordinary couple with full time jobs and a fur child named Ophir Dog. Sarah works for a non-profit health care provider, and I am in law enforcement. We don’t make a fortune, but we love helping others.
We work hard while always looking forward to our next exciting adventure, some of which we have shared openly and hope you enjoyed. But, we would be lying to pretended they are all great. Infertility has been our unconquerable Everest for 6 years now, and we need your help to reach the summit of growing our family!
When we first created @TheDreamChasingFamily
account, it had nothing to do with infertility. My initial intention was to create a place to journal our family’s adventures together. At that time, I never thought we would struggle to start our family. While it has already been rewarding to look back on our memories together as a couple, we have always wanted to add kiddos to the experiences we cherish. Without them, our family feels incomplete.
Over the years, we have silently and privately climbed towards our ultimate goal of having children, hoping the dream would eventually come true. Unfortunately, the dark clouds of infertility still loom overhead, largely in the form of otherwise unattainable funds for the expensive medical treatment (IVF) doctors have said we need to conceive.
Meanwhile, we find joy in what our bodies can do for us. We can run, hike, swim, bike and play in the great outdoors. This provides periodic breaks in the stormy weather as we keep climbing our Everest. With your help, we know we can beat infertility’s ass, and eventually share our passion for life with our future children.
Lastly, and most of all, THANK YOU! Thank you for joining us on this journey. Thank you for lifting some of the heavy burdens from our shoulders. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, positive comments and donations. We are more resilient because of you. ❤️
Edward + Sarah Dalton
