We are ready for the next chapter in our lives-a family! We can't do it on our own. Please consider helping make our dream a reality!

In 2002, Jade found out she was born with a rare condition and is unable to carry children on her own. We have been looking into alternative ways to start a family, which all involve waiting lists, appointments, expensive bills, fees, and overall time. We have been led to surrogacy, which means he/she will be ours, but Jade won't carry the baby. It is an expensive process and insurance does not cover it, except for a few medical visits. 

Jade is a first grade teacher at a Spanish Immersion school, which she absolutely loves! Mike is the assistant general manager at a popular restaurant chain that keeps him busy. We would love to be able to save up for this baby on our own, but we know that with our income plus living expenses, it could take years. 

We came onto this website one day while catching up with a friend. She shared with us that there are ways to raise money to help with fees, bills, and any other financial needs we may come across. It was difficult to set up a fundraiser, because we want to do things on our own, but we know that it is beyond us.

So however you can help, we are so blessed to have you be a part of our journey. Whether it is a prayer, a thought, or a financial donation, we are so blessed to have you in our lives.  We are excited for the next chapter in our lives and thank you so much for being a part!
