Campaign Story

We are embarking on an unexpected IVF journey for baby #2. Being a military family, finding doctors and consistent care when you move often is hard. We have been blessed to have finally found a doctor that wanted answers for us as much as we wanted them. After multiple miscarriages in our past and a more recent miscarriage under our current doctor’s care, we finally received answers and the little girl we lost a few months ago had a fatal genetic disorder.  After multiple tests, we found out that our babies are at a 4/6 chance to have trisomy or monosomy due to a genetic disorder between us that is passed forward and is fatal. This is most likely the case with the previous losses as well. Our daughter Laney (2) will carry this genetic disorder forward but it is balanced, and she should live a healthy life. Unaware at the time, she only had a very small chance to have it balanced and not be fatal. Praise God!! Due to the extremely high risk of passing along a fatal genetic disorder to our baby and consulting with a fertility doctor, it is recommended for us to do IVF to make sure an embryo that is transferred is genetically healthy in hopes to have a genetically healthy pregnancy. As this is unexpected, so is the cost. Our insurance will not cover a single penny for ART services regardless of the nature. So, we are giving this process to the Lord and praying that someone may feel inclined to help us give our daughter a sibling that she and us so desperately want.
