Finally Hope After 15 Miscarriages


IT’S AN EMOTIONAL STORY WE FIRST BROUGHT YOU HERE ON WOWT 6 NEWS. A WOMAN WHO HAS GONE THROUGH FIFTEEN MISCARRIAGES, YEARS OF TRYING TO HAVE A CHILD WITH HER HUSBAND, IS FINALLY SEEING SOME LIGHT AT THE END OF THIS LONG DARK TUNNEL. AS DON GRANESE SHOWS US, THIS COUPLE’S DREAM IS COMING TRUE THANKS TO THE OUTPOURING OF SUPPORT BY HUNDREDS OF STRANGERS. NATS OF GOFUNDME VIDEO IT STARTED WITH THE COURAGE…TO SIMPLY TELL THEIR STORY. “WE FELT DEFEATED. WE THOUGHT WE WERE DONE COMPLETELY.” FOR YEARS THEY TRIED AND TRIED… “THE DOCTOR SAID YOUR ONLY OPTION IS SURROGACY OR ADOPTION AT THIS POINT.” 15 MISCARRIAGES.. .3 FAILED ADOPTIONS. AFTER SHARING THEIR STORY WITH US AND ON THEIR GOFUNDME PAGE…AN OVERNIGHT MIRACLE. “WE’RE SHOCKED. WE DIDN’T THINK THAT IT WOULD EVEN TAKE OFF HALF AS MUCH AS IT DID.” STRANGERS… DONATED THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO HELP THEM PAY FOR INVITRO FERTILIZATION. “PEOPLE THAT WE WOULD HAVE NEVER, EVER HAD CONTACT WITH WERE HEARING OUR STORY AND DONATING AND SENDING US REALLY KIND MESSAGES AND PRAYERS.” THE FIRST DONOR WAS HER SISTER. SHE’S GOING TO ACT AS A SURROGATE. THE MONEY RAISED HAS ALLOWED THEM TO HARVEST HER EGGS AND PREPARE THEM FOR THIS PREGNANCY. “OUR FAMILY JUST NEEDS GOOD NEWS RIGHT NOW. WE’VE HAD A ROUGH YEAR.” JUST BEFORE CHRISTMAS LAST YEAR…SHE LOST HER MOTHER. “SHE WOULD BE SO MAD IF WE GAVE UP. AFTER ALL THAT WE’VE BEEN THROUGH WE HAVE TO DO THIS FOR HER.” “KEEP PUSHING.” “MMHMM” EVEN THOUGH THEIR CHILD WILL NEVER MEET GRANDMA…IT WAS BECAUSE OF HER LOVE AND THE LOVE SHOWN BY HUNDREDS OF DONORS THAT THIS COUPLE’S DREAM IS BECOMING REALITY. “I HOPE THEY REALIZE THAT THAT BABY WILL BE HERE BECAUSE OF THEM.” IN THE STATE OF NEBRASKA WE’VE RAISED CLOSE TO TEN MILLION DOLLARS IN OVER TEN THOUSAND GOFUNDME CAMPAIGNS. THAT’S THREE MILLION RAISED JUST IN THE OMAHA METRO ALONE. THIS COUPLE HAS SEEN WHAT GOOD CAN COME FROM A SIMPLE AND EVEN SMALL DONATION. “I THINK ABOUT WATCHING MY DAD PLAY WITH THE BABY BECAUSE HE’S SO AMAZING WITH MY SISTER’S KIDS AND HOW MUCH HE WANTS THIS FOR US AFTER WE LOST MY MOM.” “I DIDN’T KNOW THAT I WOULD EVER BECOME A MOM AND NOW I REALLY THINK IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN.” AGAIN…THE VARGAS’S ARE SO CLOSE TO THIS PREGNANCY PROCESS BEGINNING. THEY ARE STILL SELLING EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO AFFORD THE LAST STEP…. SO THEIR GOFUNDME PAGE IS STILL OPEN. AND MALORIE…LIND SAY TELLS ME EVEN THROUGH THEIR STRUGGLE… WHENEVER SHE SEES A GOFUNDME PAGE SHE NOW TRIES TO DONATE SOMETHING BECAUSE SHE KNOWS HOW THOSE DONATIONS CAN CHANGE LIVES. THANK YOU!… THE VARGAS’S ADMIT – NOT ALL GOFUNDME PAGES ARE LEGITIMATE, SO THEY DONATE TO ONES THEY CAN TELL TRULY NEED IT. GOFUNDME DOES TAKE A CUT OF CLOSE TO EIGHT PERCENT OF THE FUNDS RAISED. BUT LINDSAY SAYS SHE DOESN’T MIND BECAUSE WITHOUT THE WEBSITE THEY NEVER WOULD HAVE RAISED
