She Deserves to be a mommy

Hey all this is a Plea from The Frederickson’s!

 My name is Zach and my wife Christina and I have been married for 9 years. We first met at Clayton Jr. High at the age of 13 but I didn’t fall in love with her until senior year of High School. We started dating at age 17 and though we have had our trials and near meltdowns, we have stayed together. I love this woman more than anything in the world. I work as a Sheriff's Deputy for Salt Lake County and she is a director of a child care facility here in Layton. For 8 years we have been trying to have a baby... dreaming about the day when our family of 2 becomes 3. Watching as our siblings were able to have children with little to no trouble. We are the proud Aunt and Uncle to 6 Nephews and 2 Nieces. We love them dearly but truthfully... it is not enough. 

We have tried all sorts of medical procedures and fertility pills... from IUI to Clomid, from dye infused scopes to uncomfortable specimen collection.  We are tired... We are beaten... but most of all we are heartbroken. 

My beautiful wife Christina wants to be a mother... no she deserves to be a mother. I watch her interact with children and I don't understand why we can’t just be like every other normal couple. It makes me angry that I am sitting here typing this asking people I love and care about to give us money and then  ask strangers to donate  so that we can roll the dice one more time before we move onto other means of raising a child. 

What really gets me is I haven’t worked hard enough to be able to afford this on my own. Truthfully we aren’t going to be able to afford the monthly payment for a loan to cover this and that is humiliating.

So I sit here, a lump in my throat, nerves tingling on edge and I am pleading... help us raise the money we need for IVF, I have hesitated for my pride but I am also terrified that the procedure won't work and we will never get to know what our child will look like. 

I am asking for $30,000... That is what the U of U wants to allow us a guaranteed live birth or a good portion of our/your money back. I am not so naive to think we will get the full amount... while that would be amazing for us it seems that kind of thing only happens in the movies. I think it's important to state that if it does not work, all money we receive back will go into our adoption fund. I refuse to use the money for anything else.

We are hoping to start the IVF treatments in the end of February/March, I know that's not much time but the ball has already started rolling and it's time to jump on

I want you to know that we are going to use every cent donated to help cover the cost of IVF and the ridiculously expensive medication that goes along with it. We will be extremely grateful for those cents. I am not sure what else to say. People say you need to appeal to the masses and connect one on one but I figure if I just sit here and speak plainly and honestly, from my heart that will be enough. So from the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for reading, thank you for sharing and thank you anything you are able to do to allow us to become parents. 

Make good Choices People, and remember... Freddy loves you!

Wow it has been a minute... sorry lots happened. I'll just jump right in! We have been qualified for a guaranteed live birth package! For the Low LOW price of $19,400.

LOL so what that means is they will try 3 times to help us have a baby and if it does not take we get about $15,900 of that back. This price does not include the medications which can run between $2,000 and $6,000. This is really exciting news!!! We are still asking for help though! Share this for me will you? We are getting started in about a week!

well we are coming up to the point where things are starting to get into motion. I am expecting to hear from the financial department at the U today to determine exactly how much we are going to need and if we can qualify for a guaranteed live birth package (those are the 30 grand ones) . I just wanted to sincerely thank everyone who donated, I am truly over whelmed with what we have received over the course of this campaign. Please keep sharing and donating and doing what you do. This Freddy is eternally grateful!! Stick with me, I am going to keep you all updated over the next few weeks and lets see how this goes!!
