So, Mike and I have been "trying" for baby number two for several months now to no avail. In the beginning of trying we had a rejuvenated sense of hope..... "This WILL work this time!" - We both thought this. You always hear of couples needing IVF for baby #1 and then popping out babies 2, 3, 4 etc no problemo. Well, Mike and I, so far, haven't been in that lucky crowd.
Today, we have been given tremendous news. We have been selected by the New Blossoms New Life foundation as recipients of their grant to help fund a round of IVF for us! So the journey begins to give Victor a sibling!
Mike and I, as much as we loved the Cleveland Clinic, have switched to the University Hospitals (UH) (also in Cleveland) so we can use world renowned Dr. Goldfarb this time around. He is one of the nations best Reproductive Endocrinologists. He performed the first surrogate IVF transfer ever! We are blessed to be so close to him (only a 1.5 hour drive).
So I wrote Dawn, our contact at UH, an email today telling her that we are ready to go! I can't wait to hear back from her and get this show on the road!!!!!

- After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.
