My partner, Sheri and I have infertility and need your help to cover the expenses of IVF, our only real hope of getting pregnant.

My partner, Sheri, and I have been trying to get pregnant for the past 2 and a half years. We have tried at-home AI, we've tried it the old fashioned way, we've tried IUI through one of Colorado's top rated fertility clinics. Our doctor there told us that both of us have infertility, and our only hope would be IVF. Unfortunately, our insurance refuses to cover the procedure for either of us because we would be using anonymous donor sperm and not our HUSBAND'S sperm. No way around it, it must come from a legal husband of at least a year for them to consider us. Being a committed lesbian couple, that obviously wasn't an option. After going through the reality that adopting and foster care and surrogacy were all out of our reach as well, we decided to try this fundraiser so we can afford the IVF that will put us closer to realizing our dream of having a child. We really hope that our friends, family and even people we don't know yet will find it in their hearts to help us reach our dream, because we can't do it alone.
