I am aware there are many other people in need on this platform and I feel for them as well but to separate my need from theirs is just in the eye of your generosity. I don’t want to lose your attention so I will try and keep this short. IVF in short is a scientific way of helping families have children who otherwise cannot that have issues with different kinds of infertility. Our story is quite long but to try and shorten it with the additional “who am I”, I am a Retired Military Aircraft Fuels System Mechanic (Air Guard). I was actually shorted 2 years and made to retire early due to my health. My full-time was a Federal Officer in which I could no longer do, due to the same health issues. I have no Uterus, it was removed in 2019 due to those issues. My husband was shot 4 times in the back (wrong place wrong time)in 2012, where a bullet penetrated his scrotum, we got final pieces of shrapnel removed in 2020. Being told he can have children was a blessing. An even bigger blessing came in 2022 when a childhood friend of mine said she would be willing to be my Gestation Carrier (which she would carry our baby for us after we retrieve our own eggs and fertilize them). We are on a timeline because I turn 40 this year and eggs dwindle (especially mine in my situation). It is an expensive process to say the least but I have managed to find a facility that is cheaper, and researched how to get my medicine and supplies cheaper. We require lawyers for both parties in which generally all the latter would easily sky rocket above 120,000$. We on the other hand are just stretched thin from the horizon to need 5500$. That amount is stopping us from our dream to have a baby. We do not want any sympathy for our situation because we have full faith that maybe something like this platform will allow us to get to our goal. Thank you in advance and if you are not inclined to help we would love just your prayer to strengthen our situation. Thank you.
