Weʼre raising £5,000 to help us create our little miracle
- Kidderminster, United Kingdom
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hello! We are Clair & Matt Foster and we would like to start off by thanking you from the bottom of hearts for taking the time to read our story.
We understand not everyone will agree with this method of fundraising, and we hope that through our transparency everyone including those who don’t agree will be kind and understanding.
I will start off by telling you a bit about Matt and me, we have been together for 3 years now and got married in January of this year, Matt is a full time chef and i work in Sales, I am 35 years old and Matt is now 36.
At the age of 21 i was diagnosed with a uterine septum which once operated on i thought i would be able to carry a child of my own one day, unfortunately until our first round of IVF we hadn't discovered my ovarian reserve was very low and quality of the few eggs was poor.
Having failed our first IVF attempt we waited for 6 months and decided to try again, during this round we managed to get just 2 eggs to reach blastocyst but unfortunately they were just too weak to stick having used embryo glue too resulting in a 2nd failed attempt.
We were advised after our 2nd attempt that if we were to ever try a 3rd round of IVF to look into using donor eggs as with my amh levels my eggs weren't strong enough.
Having done more research into this the medical advances are far more superior and costs so much lower abroad. we have since then explored every known option available to us including adoption and fostering but we both cant commit to something like that knowing that deep down we still haven't been able to close the door on IVF and wanting to have a family of our own.
The total amount we will need to save is £8000, this is a lot of money for people like us and while we will continue to work incredibly hard and save as much money as we can, we would dearly love for this chance to come while we are still young.
We are asking for donations no matter how big or small to give us 1 last chance of fulfilling our dreams of one day having a baby of our own.
Creation of life is nothing short of a miracle and we are ready for ours :) Once again from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for reading this, donating, praying, and supporting us on our hopes of a perfect ending to our journey, and we hope that we can hold in our arms and hearts forever. xx
