Helping The Pifers "Grow"

As most of you know this journey has been a wild one and has recently taken us to a step we have been extremely dreading from the beginning; on July 14th we will be making our journey down to Austin,TX for our very first fertility clinic visit. The word "fertility clinic" has haunted me for the past 3 years, and has come into play many times; however we have always turned that option down as we were not ready. After 3 years, no pregnancy and having hit a dead end road we know that this is a step we must take. We are extremely excited, however the cost has been weighing us down lately. Fertility clinics are not cheap and unfortunately my insurance doesn't cover a dime for infertility treatments.

After many tears, praying, and letting God guide us through this journey with complete Faith that "he has a plan", I received amazing news from my friends telling me about the most wonderful surprise I've ever received. Ashley, one of my best friends, has created a "Pifer Bean Fundraiser" to help Zach and I. I can't begin to tell you the emotions that flooded my body that night I received the news. We are truly blessed to have friends who care so much. Zach and I like many have dreamed of being parents since the day we said "I do"...this is something no one plans for and something many people don't even consider. This was a step we were all hoping we would never have to take; however God has a plan for everyone and we have grown in so many ways due to this infertility struggle.

With the help of Ashley; our hearts can be at ease and we can relax a little more. Starting today they will be selling wristbands & key chains to help raise money for our upcoming fertility clinic journey.

YEAH YEAH YEAH! It's official! I'm totally going to buy a bracelet! Too bad they don't have one that will fit my little princess or I'd get her one too! I'll e-mail the "girls" all my details and I will probably mail a check :) I love you so much and I'm so glad this is happening for you. I just did my last AVON order and I made about 50 bucks to do whatever I want with and I'm so excited this came along b/c looking at and wearing the bracelet will remind me to keep my faith strong too!

Veronica said...

I was so excited to find that the your friends would be doing this for you. I will be placing my bracelet order soon. Hey, I was wondering if you might be able to post a pic of the keychain, so we can see what it looks like. It would also be great if the girls could see if they can get some youth sized bracelets too.

Hope your having a great weekend!!!

Rachel said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog! Good luck with everything. I am now following your journey and will be praying for you!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I've heard about you through Veronica, but I didn't realize you're a fellow Texan! I live near Houston. I think this is awesome what your friends are doing for you. My parents tried for a long time to conceive and then God placed me in their lives and they adopted me (my story is on my blog if you ever want to read it). What I learned from my own story is that even when we sometimes don't see how things are going to work out, the Lord always will make a way. I will be praying for you! And I'm going to order some bracelets and keychains too....they're really cute!

Kristin said...

I forgot to say that I would love to donate some bows too for the raffle. I'll send an email to the address you listed.

Anna said...

You have such awesome friends! We tried to do donations for our treatments, but no one donated. Isn't that awful!? That was so discouraging....you are so lucky!!! I'm excited for you!!!!
