So we have decided to go forward with an IVF with donor eggs. We found a great physician, Ricardo Loret de Mola, M.D. in Springfield, IL. We also found a great facility to "adopt” the eggs from. Happy Beginnings in Mount Vernon, IL.
With endometriosis we do not have much time to try to conceive before it grows back. We have decided to pursue IVF through Donor Eggs. Unfortunately is process is very costly and we do not have fertility coverage with our health plan.
Facility Fee: 6000
This process would allow for a donor (which we choose) to go through the IVF process for us in hope to transfer an embryo for me to carry to term.
So we are starting a puzzle fundraiser. I found this cute idea on a blog I have been following. I thought it would be a great way to include our friends and family and help us get the process moving quicker.
How It Works
For your gift of $20 or more, your name will be written on the back of a puzzle piece. As all of the pieces have names, the puzzle will be assembled. After the puzzle is complete, we will frame the puzzle between two pieces of glass. This will be a wonderful keepsake for our child to see all of the generous friends and family who supported us on this journey and helped bring him/her into our lives and "piece our family together".
I will be updating my blog with the progress of the puzzle as it is formed so you can see the beautiful puzzle you're helping to create for our precious baby.
If you choose to give a gift, Please know that we could never thank you enough for supporting our journey to our baby.
