Family of 2....for now....
After researching and stumbling upon some great finds in the infertility world I decided to jump in and start blogging our IVF journey. After 3 years of infertility we came to accept that biological children were not in our future, so in the Spring of 2008 we decided to expand our family through adoption. Fast foward two job layoffs later (my husband was a sales manager in the now nearly bankrupt car business) and we still clung to the adoption hope. After becoming gainfully employed again in September of 2008 we discovered that my hubby's new company health insurance covered up to $50,000 in infertility benefits. What a gigantically huge blessing! We're still suffering sticker shock everytime we see our IVF paperwork and realize that we pay merely a fraction of the cost. The insurance company even picked up the tab for the bulk of the IVF medications. I opened the box of meds and just visualized stacks of cash to the tune of $3-4K contained within the mysteriously packaged liquids, powders and vials of oil. Anticipated retrieval and transfer during the first 2 weeks of 2009
