Campaign Story

Can you chip in to help us with our surrogacy journey to become Super Dads?

We are Joshua & Chad. We have been together for nearly 18 years. We have enjoyed the last 17 years helping friends and family, and achieving our goals.

For us, seeing our nieces and nephews around Christmas, school activities and having a whole family is a part we are missing. We are heavily active outdoors, from gardening to exploring park trails, we would enjoy having a family to go on adventures with. We love home improvements such as tile work, painting, millwork and incorporating any way we can be more climate conscious. We are vegetarian, love to garden and can our own foods. We love to cook and bake, especially with family and friends. We would love to have a family to do all these wonderful things. To be super amazing dads would be a dream come true!

From the gestational carrier, egg donor, medical escrow and other costs, this journey is expensive. We are looking to raise enough funds to offset any potential gap with savings. I am asking you to help us on this new journey by donating to our fundraiser. We are ready for the next journey in our lives, having a family and would be forever thankful for your help.

    Almost ready to start

    We have been working on our home to get it appraised and get a HELOC to help fund our journey. We are hopeful we will have it ready by the end of June. We have also started appointments with preliminary work before we can have our embryos created. Thank you for helping us on our journey! Love Joshua and Chad Scott

    Contract Signed

    We have singed our contract, secured our egg donor and made our first series of payments totaling $35,900. We have updated our goal end date and hope to make this dream a reality! We are thankful for all those who have donated and supported us. Onto the next milestone!

    We have embryos!

    Our egg donor was able to produce 5 eggs after a late start to her cycle. Stress and other factors contribute to a low count, we\\'re thankful for the 5 that were afforded by her. That portion was about $15900 in medical cost and $6500 in donation compensation. Just after the egg donation we went to the clinic (12/28) to give our sample and from that our eggs were all successfully fertilized. After waiting about 6 days, we were told of the 5 fertilized eggs, 2 made it to blastocyst stage and were grade a fair grade of 4CC. The next process is to transfer the embryos to a surrogate and hope they (both 🤞🏽) latch on!

    First FET

    It took about a month to be matched with our SM who has the most sincere eyes. We just fell in love with her. We have been waiting for our beta results today, and our medical coordinator just advised that her HCG level of 1.2 is too low to be considered pregnant. While our first FET/frozen embryo transfer didn't latch on as hoped, It’s not the end of the world and we are thankful for the team that we have been given through this process.

    FET #2 & Contract Cancel

    Our second embryo transfer, using our last embryo, was unfortunately unsuccessful. To date, we have spent approximately $47,952 with Miracle Surrogacy, a journey marked by several disappointments and misguidance. We were misled about our egg donor's profile and true compensation, received no clinical recommendations or guidance, and felt the complete absence of Miracle Surrogacy as a supportive partner throughout the process.

    Early on, both Josh and I sensed potential issues when we received initial correspondence about our egg donor. Despite our concerns, we hoped for the best. When it became clear that our donor's cycle would not start, Miracle Surrogacy should have recommended another donor, but they did not. Additionally, they were not transparent about the donor's profile and age.

    Despite these challenges, we tried to make the best of the situation, investing our time, energy, and money in the hope of a positive outcome. The decision to spend any more money with Miracle Surrogacy was gut-wrenching. Therefore, we have decided to cancel our contract with them. It feels liberating to have made this decision, one that, in hindsight, we should have made from the start.

    We will keep you updated as we proceed from here.

    Love, Chad & Joshua
