Donna & Victor

Growing up, I had a tumultuous childhood.  I recall watching shows like Family Matters and wishing, why couldn’t that be my family. I made it a mission that when I start a family, I would provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment for my children.  My husband and I have been trying to conceive naturally for 6 years.  It never crossed my mind that I would be faced with physical, emotional, and financial stress that

Cat & Jacob

We met and were married later in life (I was already a month shy of 37) and naively waited a year to start trying for a family, assuming that it would be easy to get pregnant. After a year of no success, we started seeing Dr. Shahine at PNWF and received a diagnosis of age-related infertility. She recommended IVF as our best chance, but it felt completely off the table as we were completely unable

Kate & Adam

Our story starts in 2005. We were both high schoolers with dreams and aspirations. After graduating high school, we both went to college to pursue these dreams. I am an elementary school teacher and have worked at a title one school that largely services a diverse and low-income community. My husband, on the other hand, pursued a career in medicine. He is currently a resident physician. So much of our lives including our engagement, wedding,

We are blessed to have that story you want to tell your kids and grandkids. I first saw my wife the summer of ‘96 at a pool when I was 13 and she was 12 and I was immediately smitten.  I still remember telling my friend, I don’t know who she is but I am going to marry her.  I met her a few months later and we became friends.  After a few years our

Abi & Keith

My husband and I started our journey together in the summer of 2010 and knew that one day we wanted to get married and have kids together. Shortly thereafter, we packed up our things in North Texas to chase our dream in Galveston, Texas, as it was a place that both of us spent a lot of time as kids and it encapsulates much of Kenny’s family history. We knew that it would be a

We have been trying for 8 years. We decided last year to take out a loan for $14000 to try IVF for the first time. We ended up pregnant the first chance. After, 22 weeks I went into preterm labor and gave birth to our son. He unfortunately was a stillborn sweet baby boy. We are now ready to try again, we hope to get our living rainbow baby.

Angel & Matt

My husband and I have been happily married for 13 years and starting a family has been the focus for the past six years. We have done 4 IUI procedures that have not produced any pregnancies and the last two years, we have had 2 IVF cycles that have also not resulted in any pregnancies. We waited to have children after finishing college first, because we got married young and wanted to be financially stable.

Kylie & Mitch

My husband and I have been trying since January 2015 to start a family. We have had three successful pregnancies but by 8 weeks I miscarry. 2018 we went in to have a sonogram to hear the baby’s heartbeat and they pulled us into a room to give us the bad news that we lost the third baby. We have lost three babies from miscarriages and not been successful at getting pregnant again since 2018.

Ann & Jack

My husband and I first met when we were both working in a music store.  I was teaching flute lessons and he was working as the lesson schedule coordinator. The first time we met we talked for a few minutes, only to discover that I had a HUGE crush on him in High School. We’re five years apart in age, and when we would take trips with the marching band, we would watch videos of
