Surrogate Fund

Hi, my husband and I  are reaching out to our friends and family to help us raise money to complete our last step in IVF with surrogacy journey. This has a been a very long road for us. We have already managed to pay $25,000 for an IVF cycle and we ended up with only one embryo. Our next step is the embryo transfer. My sister Lindsey has been a God send and is going to be the carrier of our baby. The cost of the embryo transfer is $10,500. We were not expecting this cost at this point and we are hoping to do the transfer on February 6th. Seattle Reproductive Medicine is asking for the cost to be payed in advance by January 17th. We have exhausted all of our resources and are $5,500 short. We have been working on this since last June and were so excited to finally be at the end of the process until we found out it was going to cost us this much more in advance. We are very prideful people and hate asking for donations, but this is our last option as it would take us a very long time to save up the rest and we would hate to give up after we have come so far. There is an age limit on being a surrogate, and I fear we would not be able to save the money in time. Any donations would really mean the world to us and there are no words to express how thankful we are for any help we receive.
Thank you,
Mike and Shanna Zuidema
