Dearest Family,

Dearest Family,
Over the last 16 months we have been trying to get pregnant. About 4 months into our journey we found some issues and sought the help of my OBGYN doctor. With the help of fertility medication and other tests we thought things were looking up, but by February we realized our issues weren’t entirely based on regular ovulation, but that there was an issue with the sperm as well. From that point we decided to team up with our doctor and attempt intrauterine inseminations (IUI). Our doctor was optimistic and said he would do a max of 6 inseminations (one a month) until I was either pregnant, or had to seek additional assistance. After 4 cycles of IUI and no success, we decided to forgo the inseminations at our general OBGYN and seek help from a fertility clinic. This past August was our first meeting with the clinic and they also seemed optimistic. Through tedious blood work and testing we were able to find that some mucous like fluid could have been plugging the fallopian tubes and after the mucous was removed we proceeded with our 5th IUI hoping for success. After a failed fifth attempt, we now come to you, our family, asking for your help. Over the course of this next month we will be performing our 6th and final IUI. If unsuccessful, we will have to look into much more invasive and expensive procedures, specifically in vitro fertilization. We ask for you (if you would like) to join us in fasting and prayer on November 4th, 2012.

We would like to thank you for all of the love and support you have shown unto us over the years and also thank you for your wonderful examples. We love each and every one of you dearly and words can truly not express our gratitude to have you as members of our family. We hope that through faith our desires of becoming parents will come true.


Lance and Christine
