As many of you know Sarah and Justin have longed to expand their family. For 5 1/2 years they tried for a baby and were unfortunately unsecessful. They went on to more expensive routes and had 5 failed IUI’s. The next step was IVF which many know is also a costly route! After their first attempt they were blessed with a beautiful positive pregnancy test! Sarah had some scary complications in the beginning but the baby was strong and doing well! At 13 weeks they found out they were going to be welcoming a handsome little boy named Oliver to their world! Everything was on track as Sarah and Justin painted his nursery, started buying baby clothes, and getting ready for the biggest day of their lives!
On August 13th however, their world came crashing down! They went for a routine ultrasound, expecting to see their sweet little boy and got news they never expected! Baby Oliver has a severe heart defect. His heart is on the wrong side of his chest, and one of his ventricles is not working properly, while the other is enlarged and doing all the work. They also discovered he has a unilateral cleft lip and palette.
When Sarah hits 36 weeks her and Justin will have to move to Seattle so he can be delievered safely! There is a high chance of open heart surgery when he is born!
Any donations made will help Sarah and Justin live over in Seattle for the last 4 weeks of her pregnancy and after if Oliver goes for surgery! Seattle is not a cheap place and to live for a month will be costly!
Sarah and Justin are two of the most kind and generous people you will ever meet! Please help them out in this unknown, scary time of need!
