Matt & I have been trying to start a family since we got married in October 2012. After being diagnosed with PCOS and only having one fallopian tube, we began fertility treatments in November 2014. We have gone through nine IVF transfers - transferring a total of fifteen embryos. Six of these transfers resulted in pregnancy, but sadly, all six ended in miscarriage. After seeing countless doctors and trying different protocols, we have made the decision to move forward in our journey by using a gestational carrier, with the hopes of building our family. Matt & I are extremely blessed to have a dear friend that has offered to carry for us, which will help us tremendously with costs, but we will still have a lot of cost involved (surrogacy agency fees, fertility clinic fees, medications, lawyers, psych exams for both couples, medical expenses, etc).
Matt & I are hosting a puzzle fundraiser to help raise some funds toward our gestational carrier journey. Each puzzle piece cost $25 and we will put your name on one of the puzzle pieces. If you chose to donate more, your name will go on multiple puzzle pieces. There are 400 puzzle pieces. After the puzzle is complete, it will be framed and hung in our nursery.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us on our journey. It hasn't been easy, but being surrounded by those that genuinely support us has helped us stay strong.
