Campaign Story

The journey for us to become parents has been a long one already. We started trying over a year ago with a fertility treatment method called IUI. After countless attempts, our doctor told us that it was time we moved to IVF treatment. We have been making lateral moves to ensure our future baby Atlas is being born in a safe place, and we bought our first house! We were ready to start the IVF journey when we were hit with the cost and told that my insurance didn’t cover any medical bills, medication, etc., for IVF treatment. Medicine aside, IVF costs $30,000 for up to 6 tries. And it is all due upfront. Of course, this devastated us, and we began looking at loans. Those loans would put us in debt at a 13% interest rate over five years. We are disappointed in the lack of help for LGBTQ couples who want the same opportunity to have a child of their own as anyone else. We searched grants and found that unless I had been labeled as “infertile,” I was not a candidate to apply. (Which, hello, my wife can’t get me pregnant.) So here we are, hoping to find some help from our friends and family. We understand this is a big ask, but we would appreciate any help. We thank you all in advance and hope we will be on the road to being the best moms our future Atlas could ask for.
