Campaign Story

Caitlin Hernandez is my beautiful, kind daughter. Her biggest dream in her life has always been to be a Mommy! She would constantly talk about it while she played with her dolls! When asked what she wanted to be whenever she grew up, her response was ALWAYS, “I want to be a Mommy!”

Later, while going to college she taught dance to help pay for her college expenses. She taught children 3 years and up. Caitlin always had such a magnificent and special bond with the children she taught. She treated them as if they were her own, and they all loved her!! Her passion has always been to be around children.

She later met the love of her life, Julian, and the magic happened! They realized they were soul mates!!! They were together for 11 years, got married and instantly wanted to start a family. Once they were married, that is when they realized it was going to be a difficult journey in having the child they had always dreamed of. It has been a long 3 years with many tears and heartbreaks. Even though both of them work very hard, neither one has insurance that covers any costs for infertility treatment.

Caitlin is 31 years old and is having health issues that are making it impossible for her to get pregnant on her own. She feels like her body is failing her. First, she had to have several treatments and surgeries to try and help correct her problems. None were successful.

She was then referred to a fertility specialist. Again, all the testing and medicine had to start over. Just the medications alone affects her emotions – the ups and downs!! Caitlin and Julian continued to have faith that one day they will become parents to a sweet little baby! The doctor seemed hopeful. But after having 4 cycles of IUI, 3 of which were unsuccessful, and one resulting in a miscarriage, and $12,000 spent so far, the doctor suggested they try IVF. That is their only hope of conceiving a child. This news was devastating and heartbreaking.

Their life has been turned upside down. The emotional rollercoaster that these 2 have been on over the last 3 years has certainly taken a toll on them, but they are in this journey together, and their faith is strong!  But adding the financial cost of IVF has become overwhelming to them. The beginning cost of IVF is $23,000. They have already spent $12,000 with no results and with the cost of living going up, they are fearful that they may never reach their dream! Unfortunately, even after many phone calls to the insurance, they continue to state neither of them have coverage for infertility treatments. Caitlin and Julian will make the most loving and amazing parents if given the chance. If you could donate, any amount would help, to make their dream come true and would be greatly appreciated. If you can’t donate, please keep my daughter and son in love in your prayers! When you are a mother, you will do anything to help your kids. I pray that I can help my baby have her very own baby and experience that special bond that we share one day soon! Thank you! ♥️
