Campaign Story

Our names are Seth and Mikyla Timmerman. Our love story began in 2014 when we met each other in college. It was clear early in our relationship that we wanted to make a life with one another. After graduating, we moved to Ohio and were married in the fall of 2019. We always knew that we wanted children, so we began to set goals for ourself that included: a career change, adopting a dog, and then of course moving out of our apartment and buying a house. These were all things we wanted and worked hard for on our journey to start growing our family.


We have been fortunate enough to spend 8 wonderful years together (married for 3) but there is still just one thing that’s missing… We want nothing more than to become parents of a healthy baby, but there is a risk involved with a rare genetic condition we fear passing on. After several doctor’s appointments, late night research, and various testing, we have decided that getting pregnant the natural way and having a healthy baby (who would have a great quality of life) is not very likely.


We have decided as a couple (and with the guidance of medical professionals,) that if we want to have a baby of our own, our only option is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF.) We will also need two genetic tests known as PGT-M and PTG-A as well as specialized medications. What doctors are capable of today is truly remarkable, but implantation is not always successful. It’s not uncommon that we may have to go through several rounds of medical procedures before becoming pregnant. Much to our dismay, we have learned that insurance providers only cover a small portion of the cost. We will be responsible for ~$20,000, (which could increase depending on how many rounds we will have to go through.)


We have been blessed beyond measure in life already, but deeply want to grow our family. If you are willing to provide any assistance by clicking the Donate Now button below, that would be greatly appreciated. If we were to receive an abundance of funds, we will be donating to the Gift of Parenthood to help other couples like us in need. Thank you for taking the time to hear our story. We so appreciate your time and consideration.


God Bless <3.
