How to afford what comes next

We now are burdened with the daunting task of trying to figure out how in the hell we are going to pay for all of the next steps. We don't have a lot of money, even though we both work. We are trying so hard to get out of debt and stay afloat. We spent thousands of wasted dollars on the last round. Now we need to come up with so much more money to keep going. We have to find almost $3k in two weeks!!! Bye bye money.

I guess we should start playing the lottery or selling our possessions on ebay. I don't know how the hell a person is supposed to do this. It seems like every other person in the world can get pregnant and start saving, buying homes, putting money away for their childrens college. Instead we are still trying to make enough money to have a child. It is ridiculous. I know some people resort to selling their childs name on ebay (someone gets to name your kid for a price) or sending out letters to friends and family to ask for money. I just don't have it in me to do that.

It is hard to explain how it feels to be stuck in this position. All we want in our life is a family. We don't want a fancy car or a big house. We are even content with renting if it means that we can have a child and do our best to raise that child well. And yet, we cannot afford what it takes to get to that point. It is so ridiculously unfair. It feels like being stuck in a vice with very few options.

It's times like this when I wish I was independently wealthy. I'd have been the first one sending $ your way. Unfortunately, I don't have that luxury. Please know that I'm keeping you in my thoughts, that somehow you'll find a way. (((hugs)))

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
