Organizing a gift drive for the Children's Receiving Home.
These are all things that I am comfortable with. Making other peoples' lives better or day brighter.
But I'm not good at accepting help.
It's uncomfortable for me.
But after several friends expressed their helplessness regarding our situation and communicated how much they want to support us and make this journey easier on us, I finally relented. And my best friend set up this page to help ease some of the financial burden of our out-of-pocket medical expenses.
Humankind never ceases to amaze me. Especially at the holidays....such an expensive time of year. It warms my heart that people care enough about us to love on us in this way and keep us in their prayers as we embark on this next round of IVF.

Some of our friends have offered to share the button above and You Caring link via their blogs or social media which has been a huge blessing. More than anything, I'm happy that our story is being shared to help raise awareness of infertility, the huge strain it places on couples, the great lengths at which we go to have what comes so easily to others and the isolation that many of us feel during the holidays.
If you want to help raise awareness but aren't infertile or don't feel comfortable sharing your own story, please feel free to share our story.
