Any money raised will begin the adoption process. This will go toward either embryo adoption or to adoption of an already born child.

Stephanie and I have been married since September of 2007. We had agreed to enjoy some time just being married but were really looking forward to starting a family of our own. After months of no conception we visited the fertitlity center in York PA and discovered that both of us had issues that were holding back our chances. I found out my count is low with low motility and what I do produce is not shaping properly. My wife Stephanie sufferes from PCOS (poly-cystic ovarian syndrome) and cannot control ovulation naturally. The doctors were very optomistic at the time that something could be done. So were we.

After almost four years of various expensive treatments and enduring not only three IVF cycles but numerous attempts through horomone therapy cycles our hopes of starting a family have yet to be realized. This road has been difficult, which is not even strong enough to describe what we have been through and we have arrived at adoption as our only course left since everything else has failed.

Understand that we do not view adoption as an inferior choice, we simply exhausted every opportunity we could to have a family that was from both of us before exploring adoption. We are still hopeful that this course of action will give us the family we both desire, but the road we have traveled here has been an expensive one and we have given everything to exhaust every opportunity we could take advantage of.

It is always difficult to ask for help in even the smallest of tasks but we certainly need that help now. We ask our friends, family and anyone out there who understands what it's like to want something unconditionally and to never attain it regardless of how close you come to help us reach that goal. We will be looking to adopt and provide them the home I think that child and my wife and I all desire. The only thing we are lacking at this point is the financial ability to make this happen. Thank you in advance for anything you can donate to this cause and know that you are helping to ensure a future for not only a child but for Steph and I as well.
