A few years ago my husband and I started trying to get pregnant. After 3 years of trying we decided to go seek help.
Our doctor suggested that i have an exploratory surgery to see what was going on. After the surgery he told us something we thought we would never hear. I had extreme scaring of my fallopian tubes causing hydrosalpinges resulting in infertility. He told my husband and I we woukd never be able to have kids naturaly without help.

Devestation, as a woman I felt cheated out of my right to give birth. My husband being the last male in his family felt like he had failed them.

We have been to doctors in Ohio,Kentucky and Tennessee and all the doctors confirm the same. There isn't a day that goes by that way don't pray for a child. We try and then every month I get my period and hope diminishes. We ignored the doctors for a while thinking to ourselves they couldnt be right. But every month we get a reminder that they are. We have explored all our options and have determined that IVF is our best option boasting for us what doctors hope to be a 80% success rate. 80% that's great but then...

The new healthcare laws stripped me from my husbands insurance and we are now facing a very expensive procedure. So versus giving up hope we have decided to pray,save and ask for your help.

We are a young middle class family (he is 31 and I'm 33), so we know money isn't easy to come by but we are asking for any donation, no matter what amount. This campaign is about bringing a gorgeous baby into this world but it's also about lifting our spirits are realizing that there our people out there that love and support us. Even a dollar donation will brighten our day and helps us realize we have wonderful caring people who share our dream of keeping a family name alive, God giving us a beautiful baby and answering our prayers.

Thank you in advance for any help. Even if you don't donate keep this going by tell someone you know with infertility that you love them. Trust us when we say it makes a difference.
