Firstly thanks for even taking a look!
Our story so far ..........
My husband and I have undertake 3 rounds of IVF - not a nice process at all, emotional and very tiring, it plays on your emotions and on your relationship both emotionally and financially, we have a low sperm count and a 0.001% of naturally concieveing a child. My husband had mumps when he was 4 years old.
We have grieved, shouted, screamed, cried - lots of tears and some more.
After a few years of coming to terms with the fact that we could not afford any more rounds of IVF we started to think about adoption and the love and support we could provide to a young person and what a loving supportive home we could provide.
So we have now started down the route of adoption, its not easy, the assessment is hard, I dont expect it be any easy at all and I agree totally with what they ask, prod and poke you about!
We have one little worry, finances, we were told at our recent assessment last week it would be good if we could get some of our debts down - we have 15K (from the IVF) and we do manage this and we are paying this off - slowly but surely. They told us it will be a stumbling block when we come to the final assessment.
Our shout out to the world is can you help us provide, start, give us the family we would love to have.
We don't do things like this normally and even as I am writing this I am worried, but time is not on our side, we are not getting any younger.
We hope you can help and any little amount will be much appreciatted. We are doing our own things to help too, fundraising, garage sales, friends and family and also cutting back on all our outgoings, not going out, no holidays, etc etc. We need to make an impact.
Much love to you all and thanks for even stopping by. We promise to keep you updated on our journey, obviously due to the sensititivity of what we are going through we have decided not to post any pictures, but we will keep you up to date with our journey I promise you that much.
