Campaign Story

Isaias and I have given our lives to ministry among the urban poor through our non-profit and church-based ministries. Because of our devotion to these callings, we had both individually had put off marriage and starting families. We were thrilled when we finally found partners in one another with shared dedication to our faith and to ministry, and we married in August 2019.

Isaias and I found out that I was pregnant in June, 2021, and were ecstatic to realize that we would soon become parents! We were devastated a few weeks later when I miscarried. Until that point we had been trying to conceive for almost a year and had been unable to do so. We are ready to start our family, but because we are a little bit older we have continued to be unsuccessful in conceiving since I miscarried last year.

We have consulted with two fertility centers, and have been told that in vitro fertilization treatment is a good option for us with a higher-than-average rate of success for someone of my age.

Isaias and I are not wealthy by any means, but we both have full-time work, steady income, and some money saved to help us buy a home in which to raise our family. Most importantly, we have immense love for one another and we long for children to receive the overflow of that love. We do not want to start off parenthood by being in debt due to the cost of fertility treatments.

This is why we are humbly asking our close family and friends to consider helping us by donating to support us in achieving our goal of becoming parents. Thank you for your love and friendship to us!
