making parenthood possible


We have known Ken and Shelly for over 3 years. We consider them as valuable dear friends and we are so thankful to know them. Over the time that we have known them, they have always expressed their desire to have children. We have had the awesome privilege of spending a significant amount of time with then over the course of the last 3 years. We are also awed by the way that both Ken and Shelly have nurtured our  2 children. They truly have hearts of gold.  

Unfortunately, it has not been an easy road for Ken and Shelly. As some of you may know, they have been dealing with infertility for the past 5 years and during this time, they have lost 2 babies to miscarriage.  After being tested, it has been determined that Ken and Shelly are going to need to pursue fertility treatments. At this point, in vitro fertilization (IVF) is the next step. This procedure will cost approximately $10,000 and if it does not work, they will need to start over with another IVF. 

Friends, we need your help. Surely you would agree with me that Ken and Shelly are deserving of parenthood. Let's work together to get Ken and Shelly through their needed medical treatment to build their family.  Our goal is to raise $10,000 by July 1st, 2016. 

We are excited about the opportunity that they will have to pour into the lives Ken and Shelly and their future baby. This baby will be forever blessed and will be loved and cared for by this amazing family. Please help us make that dream come true.​​

In the meantime, we will be hosting a fertility shower for them on April 10th at 1:00pm (invitation enclosed). This will provide a wonderful start to their journey toward becoming parents.
