I appreciate you for taking the time to read my story and hopefully for donating to my cause.
My life changed dramatically on July 24th, 2002. Working at a notary's office I had to go down the stairs. Suddenly the heel of my shoe broke and I lost my balance and fell down the stairs. I landed on the marble floor and I was unconsious for over 15 minutes.
After being in and out of the hospital they diagnosed me with neck and brain damage. Not being able to function anymore, not being able to work and have a social life, I lost all of my friends.
After that I fought very hard to get healthy again. It took me years to accomplish that.
For very long I wanted to become a mother and because of my terrible accident I hadn't found and still haven't my soulmate to have children with.
Not wanting to miss out on having kids, I chose to become a single mom with the use of donor semen.
Finally having the guts to do so, I made my first appointment at the clinic in 2012. The clinic operated under the conditions "you want something (semen), so please give something (eggs)". This was something that was very appealing to me to help other moms and dads to make their wishes come true also.
My first treatment was an ICSI (similar to IVF) where half of my harvested eggs were donated.
From this first treatment I didn't get pregnant.
Future attempts would be IUI and after my third IUI I got pregnant, January 2013. I was overwhelmed and so happy, but unfortunately that wasn't for long... I miscarried at 7 weeks.
More IUI's failed and in August 2013 again my life changed dramatically as my mother and best friend suddenly was hospitalized. After nearly 2 weeks she passed. Losing my mother, with the wish of becoming a mother myself, was terrible.
Still wanting to go through, I started again 2 months after. Finally I got pregnant again in January 2014 and was able to give birth to a beautiful baby boy named Olivier in September.
My son has tought me so much and I never knew how much love one could give to their child.
Because I grew up as an only child, I would now love to give my son a baby brother or sister, especcialy from the same semen donor.
Unfortunately, there are a number of things that have changed at the clinic. Since recently I also have to pay for the transportation and the storage of the semen and the donor semen itself. I also have to decide in advance how many straws (number of attempts) I want to purchase. Everything together makes it very expensive.
I seriously need your help to make my wish come true.
