Today I’m feeling defeated. If I sat here and thought about all of this long enough, I could just cry. I’ve had some wonderful friends and coworkers offer fundraising suggestions, and they all sound great. But what if none of them work? What if I can’t get the money needed for IVF?
No one should have to feel this way. No one should have to struggle this much to have a child when there are some who can’t afford them, yet they keep having them. It’s not fair.
I started a fundraising website at GiveForward. It’s a crowd funding type of site. It’s global so it should reach more people. I’ve had about 120 people view my page, but yet only four people have donated. I hate to say only four people because I truly love those who have donated. I’m having a terrible time understanding why people can’t even donate $5 or $10. I know that sounds terrible, but these are friends and family.
Some how, if I ever get through this and have my miracle baby, I’d like to create a foundation or something like it that will help other couples and single women financially fund their IUIs and IVFs. I would love to be able to pay this forward and help others. But first I have to get it to work for myself, otherwise, how will I raise the money for others.
