Campaign Story

My name is Christine. I am married to an amazing man, and we would love to have a baby of our own.
Back Story: He was told he couldn’t father children and by a miracle his (then) wife got pregnant with their bundle of joy.
I miscarried twins before getting pregnant with my rainbow baby with my (then) husband. Afterwards, I was a Gestational Surrogate for 2 amazing families. With the last one, I had my tubes tied as my husband at the time did not want anymore (he didn’t want the one we had) and refused to get a vasectomy. It was not a healthy relationship and there was a lot of mental and emotional abuse. I left him and our toxic marriage.
Now, I am happy and over the moon with my current husband and have finally learned what true love is. We have known each other over a decade and have been married for two years. Nothing would make us happier than having a mini us running around.
Insurance will not cover any IVF or tubal litigation reversal procedures because my sterilization was voluntary.
We have the money to raise a baby, but coming up with the money for the process is harder and would deplete any savings we have for our family.
Any help is appreciated and your kindness is amazing.
