Help Us Make a Baby!!!

My wife and I have a great life, I'm not going to lie. We have a beautiful home in a perfect neighborhood. I'm currently working my dream job as a toy designer. We have the world's greatest dog. And we're surrounded by a crew of amazing friends and family.

But the one thing our life is missing is a little one to enjoy all of this with us.

This past year, we spent our entire savings on trying to have a baby through IVF, which we are limited to due to medical reasons. In February, my wife got pregnant thanks to the power of modern medical science. All went well until 4 1/2 months later, we she miscarried due to what the doctors refer to as an "incompetent cervix" and we lost our baby girl. It was crushing. (And really, "incompentent" cervix? We have to come up with a better name.)

But we are not ready to give up.

After consulting with our doctors, it has become clear that the only way we can have a fighting chance is through another round of IVF followed by "cerclage" surgery and with my wife having to go on 6 months of strict bed rest.

Obviously, between the clinic fees for the IVF session (or sessions), the surgery and the 6 months of missed work, this isn't going to be cheap.

This is where you can come in. With such a seemingly insurmountable financial hurdle in front of us, we have to turn to the generosity of people like you, so that we can do everything we need to do to bring a life into this world.

Thanks for helping.
