Campaign Story

Hi my name is Marci and I have been married to my husband Adam for 13 years. We found out a few years into our marriage that us having a child naturally would probably not happen. Over the last 10years we have set aside money each month with the dream of one day being able to do IVF. Our dream of IVF was temporarily put on hold when we made the decision to try and adopt our foster daughter Serenity. She was 2 years old and had lived with us since she was 4 months old. The idea of her leaving us to go live with a stranger was terrible so we did the only thing we could do. We filed an objection to her being removed from our home and went to court. We had to hire three different attorneys, which as you know was very expensive. We made the decision to fight for Serenity because we felt like she deserved to stay in her home with the only parents she had ever known. At the end of our court battle it did not go in our favor, so we had to appeal to the Oklahoma supreme Court. Which was very costly and again involved all three of our attorneys. We ended up completely draining our IVF fund and in the end Serenity did not get to stay with us. She was sent to live with a biological family member who she did not know. The entire ordeal was terrible and heart breaking, but Adam and I still believe we made the best decision in fighting for her. A few months later after our hearts had started to heal,
We went ahead and pursued IVF. We paid for all the medicines and the egg retrieval with a credit card and we went to Colorado where we successfully made five embryos. They are currently frozen and waiting for us. It is our dream to be able to transfer these embryos with the hope of one of them will implant, blessing us with a child. Unfortunately the process of transferring these embryos will involve more medications and another surgical procedure. Anything you can give will be amazing and we will be truly grateful. Please help us make our dreams of being parents happen.
