Katie and Craig have been trying to have a child for almost five years. They have been married for eight years. Their first pregnancy ended in a stillbirth, at 34 weeks, in December of 2008. Katie has been pregnant, and miscarried, 14 more times. Each pregnancy was welcomed with love and optimism. Each miscarriage was met with sadness and a profound feeling of loss.
Daunted, but undeterred, Katie and Craig attempted In Vitro Fertilization. Notwithstanding the fact that neither the procedure, nor any of the medications associated with that procedure were covered by medical insurance, they emptied out their retirement funds, and moved forward with joy in their hearts. Unfortunately, that procedure was not successful.
Nonetheless, Katie and Craig were able to harvest 7 viable embryos from the IVF procedure. With the help of a family member, Erin Goodwin, they attempted gestational surrogacy. Due the the efforts of a fantastic IVF doctor, one boy was successfully implanted. However, that baby has also died, for reasons unknown.
Candidly, Katie and Craig are at the end of their resources. But, they still have 5 embryos, and a willing surrogate. What they don't have is any more funds for the procedures required. They are asking for help from family and friends to keep their dream alive... If you are moved by their struggle, please help!
