Campaign Story

Hi! We are Adam and Katie. We have been married for almost 8 years and have a precious baby girl named Savannah who is almost 5 years old. We have been trying to expand our family since June 2018 when our Savannah was only ten months old in high hopes of experiencing parenthood once again and giving our girl a sibling. She asks God daily to answer this prayer that we all hold so close to our heart.

I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and had surgery to remove a lot of it in 2004 with great results, but it is something that is still a struggle. In addition, as most of you know- I have a pretty extensive history with DVT’s (deep vein thrombosis) and am on blood thinners for life due to Factor V Leiden. I have not had a blood clot in about 10 years so the blood thinners and placement of two stents have proved to be successful long term. We have had all the fertility testing done by two different specialists and other than low progesterone (which I am on medication for) and our “advanced maternal” age along with my health issues, there isn’t anything specific that is preventing a pregnancy from occurring from a medical standpoint so we are in the unexplained infertility category. We also went through two years of infertility prior to our Savannah- we were obviously able to eventually conceive with Letrozole & Ovidrel (fertility medication) and our third IUI (intrauterine insemination). We have undergone that same protocol for baby #2 in 2018-2019 with no success and completed 8 rounds of which our insurance at the time covered.

At this point and four years in of trying, IVF (invitro fertilization) is our next and last option. It is not covered by our insurance and it is very costly which is why we have created this fundraiser. Any amount will help, even $5! But most importantly, we need the power of prayer so please pray for us as this has been very stressful on our little family in the midst of everything else that is going on. If we are able to raise the funds to move forward with IVF, we will create a private Facebook page (or email for those that don’t have FB) for those interested in being updated during the journey!
