Financing IVF

A friend of mine sent me this article this week. There are reasons that I have become more public about my IVF. I think it does help people to understand how expensive that it is and that insurance doesn't cover many of the costs. I've said it before but we are SO blessed to have such wonderful friends who are planning a fundraiser for us which is taking off a lot of the "pressure" of financing. We are also blessed to have parents who really want grand kids and are willing to help out. My heart goes out to SO many couples who are forced to give up their dream of having their own children because of the expense. It's not fair! We're still kind of playing the waiting game for our IVF, along with getting our finances and insurance in order. Happy Friday everyone, we're headed to the state fair! One last big hurrah for the Summer but another 3 day weekend! Smart and Trendy Moms

I'm visiting (and following!) from Social Parade. That is amazing that your loved ones are throwing you a fundraiser. I can't believe how prevalent fertility problems are. The majority of my friends have had fertility issues. Luckily IVF has come through for many of them. Good luck to you in your journey!
