I love my sister and her husband and I want them to be able to have a baby.
Growing up my older sister Leisa was my best friend. Although our ages (7 years) and our place in the family (oldest of four, youngest of four) differed greatly, we have been constantly bonded together. Through the years we played together, went on adventures, played sports, sang in church, she taught me how to drive, and treated me like an equal even when she was 23 and I was 16. She has been my guide and mentor through all the years and has been like a second mother to me. She is active and outgoing. Some of you know this about her, as her personality and desire to do good have touched many of you through the years.
She met Jacob during her internship in Georgia, and I couldn't be blessed with a better brother in law to take care of my big sister. He comes from a family of ten, and he is a kind dedicated man who is the favorite uncle of many a neice and nephew. After getting married in 2006 they struggled getting pregnant. Having endometriosis made it difficult. After being poorly tested and given incorrect amounts of medication, they had a failed invitrofertilization attempt, and are still trying to pay off loans from that expensive procedure. She is now 33, turning 34 next year and after being retested by the #3 infertility specialist in the country, doctors tell her that next year may be the last chance for her to get pregnant. But shes now been adequately tested and in good hands, and the chances are really good now that all the information is correct! As this has been a struggle for many of you and/or your friends and family I know that you may feel for her in this time of struggle.
As you may know, in vitro fertilization can be very costly. Their insurance covers all of the cost of the procedure, but does not cover either the anesthesiologist or the injections she has to have. And the doctors have told her it will take two rounds of harvesting follicles in order to give them enough to work with, which of course, has doubled the amount of medication they need, including the $875/ vial injections.
I also know that asking is difficult, but this has become a last chance effort for them, and I could not think of better parents. We need you now. Anything you could give would be a blessing to their lives.Will you now give to them to help them fulfill their lifelong desire to become parents?
