The Story

Hiii friends!!! Welcome to our IVF Baby Fund! Oh man, we are sooo grateful and humbled that you are here to support us and our dream of becoming parents. THANK YOU!!!

*Please do not feel like you need to donate. We are sooo grateful for the prayers and feel them each day. 

My husband (Brian) and I have been trying to start a family since we got married just over three years ago. Unfortunately, we are struggling with infertility; which has made our dream of becoming parents very difficult. In the last 1.5 years we have completed 6 (almost 7) rounds of IUI fertility treatment. Our 5th IUI was a success but we miscarried at 8 weeks. We had to make a decision after our 7th attempted treatment between IVF, 8th attempt at IUI, or adoption. We feel in our hearts that IVF is the best route for growing our family, our overall health, and our marriage.

Our insurance doesn't cover anything related to infertility treatment which made this route absolutely terrifying. We are letting go of our pride and starting an IVF Fund for those that want to support us monetarily. We are beyond grateful for your generosity in wanting to help us pay for IVF so we can get our Rainbow Baby. 

We are located in Kansas City, Missouri, USA. We will be meeting with our awesome doctor in just over a week to discuss moving forward with IVF. All of the proceeds will go to our IVF expenses.

Thank you!!!!!

Hello friends! Well...here is an update! 

We entered in an IVF grant with Ellie and Jared (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqGCMdactmk) and didn't win BUT some very deserving families did and we are so happy for them. If you haven't watched our video - check it out. It's a short glimpse of our journey. 

Sooooo.. what is the next step in this process? Well... getting our IVF forms all filled out, notarized, and turned in this weekend. Our goal for IVF is July BUT it might be later in the year because May (when we would start classes) is creeping up and we are about $11,000 away from our goal. I am going to use this as motivation to work really hard on my biz though! #babybarzee


OH! And we passed our "due date" and I was totally okay. One day at a time, y'all. 

We are soooooo grateful for you and your support. What an amazing blessing to have such wonderful people surrounding us. 

More blogs and vlogs coming soon!!! 

xo, Carissa
