Campaign Story

My name is Jessica. I am a wife and mother of two handsome boys. I never thought I would experience fertility issues after having two healthy kids, but here I am. Secondary infertility is what it’s referred as. My husband and I have talked about expanding our family throughout the years but the pandemic and significant family loss have taken precedence. I lost my mother in August 2018 after a long battle with ovarian cancer and chronic kidney disease. In December 2018 I lost my grandmother after she lived to be a fabulous 104 years old. The pandemic was a stressful time for my family as my husband, a healthcare worker, had to work long hours away from our family. We moved to another state in September 2020 and have been acclimating to the changes. We wanted to provide our growing boys a better quality of life away from all the violence in our neighborhood. In May 2022, my brother died. He was 39. It put life into perspective and you’re forced to make every second count. Even through significant loss the past four years, the past two years have been better than they have been for us in a long time. We have been trying to conceive for approximately two years, maybe a little over. You lose count after experiencing disappointment after disappointment. Our boys deserve a sibling. Oh they’ve been asking for one and how we wish Mama & Papa can snap our fingers and it is done. I miss my mother so much, and though I wouldn’t trade my boys for anything in the world I yearn to maybe someday experience the mother-daughter relationship I had with my mother. She was my warrior and best friend. We are currently in the IVF process but the prognosis is not great, not horrible but not optimally probable. We keep praying and hoping we have the opportunity to add to our family. Any assistance would help greatly. I pray for everyone on this journey and hope you are blessed with a beautiful soul who will call you mommy and/or daddy. Thank you for your time and support.
