Create a fundraiser like this

Be a part of bringing a beautiful child into this world for a couple who will give this child more love than can be put into words!

This fund has been created to raise money to help cover costs of infertility treatment.

Treatment will be done at the Seattle Center for Reproductive Medicine in Tacoma, WA

Me and my husband have been TTC for four years now through fertility treatments with no luck. It has been a really tough time with a lot of tears shed and depression. We are at a point where our only option left is to try Invitro, which our insurance does not cover.

All we are asking for is a small donation of at least a dollar, or anything your willing to spare to help us to achieve our dream of having a family and the wonderful gift of being a parent.

Update: I can't thank everyone enough for the donations we have recieved so far! As of March 1st, I will officially be on my PCOS diet! I have to stay away from carbs, dairy, and refined sugars, and focus on a more healthy eating style that focuses on foods that will help raise my estrogen levels. I need to create a perfect environment for the little bundle of love!

Keep the donations & hugs coming!


Thoughts on Becoming a Mother - Author Unknown

There are women that become mothers without effort,
without thought, without patience or loss and though
they are good mothers and love their children,
... I know that I will be just as good a mother.

It will be not because of genetics,
or money or that I have read more books but because I have
struggled and toiled for this child.
I have longed and waited. I have cried and prayed.
I have endured and planned over and over again.

Like most things in life, the people who truly have
appreciation are those who have struggled to attain their dreams.
I will notice everything about my child.
I will take time to watch my child sleep, explore and discover.

I will marvel at this miracle every day for the rest of my life.
I will be happy when I wake in the middle of the night
to the sound of my child, knowing that I can comfort,
hold and feed him and that I am not waking to take
another temperature, pop another pill, take another
shot or cry tears of a broken dream.
My dream will be crying for me.

I count myself blessed in this sense; that God has given
me this insight, this special vision with which I will
look upon my child that my friends will not see.
Whether I parent a child I actually give birth to
or a child that God leads me to,
I will not be careless with my love.

I will be a better mother for all that I have endured.
I am a better wife, a better aunt, a better daughter,
neighbor, friend and sister because I have known pain.
I know disillusionment as I have been betrayed by my own body.

I have been tried by fire and hell many
never face, yet given time, I stood tall.
I have prevailed. I have succeeded. I have won.
So now, when others hurt around me, I do not run from
their pain in order to save myself discomfort.
I see it, mourn it, and join them in theirs.
I listen. And even though I cannot make it better,
I can make it less lonely.
I have learned the immense power of
another hand holding tight to mine, of other eyes that
moisten as they learn to accept the harsh truth and
when life is beyond hard. I have learned a compassion
that only comes with walking in those shoes.

I have learned to appreciate life.
Yes I will be a wonderful mother.
