About a year ago I found out that having kids would be difficult for me due to testing revealing what an endocrinologist believed to be endometriosis. For anyone that knows me, I am transparent about my desire to have kids and it has been a driving force in my life since I was a little girl myself. I am a woman that has always believed that God made that deep desire for me to have kids when I was formed! Through this journey I have made a point of having a circle of others around me to help pray and give me sight to see where God is leading me next. It was through this circle. a lot of prayer and seeking, that there was a unanimous feeling God wanted me to see where this journey with my doctor would lead and try to have a baby. Even if it was on my own, they all believed there was something and someone (a baby) that God would bring out of this. It was also heavily about timing and knowing when I could do this and how much I could do. I have had 2 losses and multiple failed procedures to make a nice cozy environment to grow a baby in which has led my doctor to state IVF may be my only real option of having kids. Unfortunately, IVF is a costly avenue and I am in need of help coving costs as much as I can. I cannot qualify for any of the grants or scholarships available to my case as my doctor cannot officially label me infertile until I have had 12 failed attempts (equaling one calendar year of trying to conceive) or 3 losses and because of my background and the fact that I'm single, this could take a couple of years to accomplish....waiting 2 years to qualify for any of those options greatly changes my ability to be able to get pregnant with advancing endometriosis and this I don't see as an available option. I am hopeful that there are a few people out there that understand where I'm at and are able to help (even if it's just an encouraging note!) in the journey to make project baby a reality.
