Our dream of being parents

Where to start. We love each other which I guess is the best place to start. We found each other after life had taken the opportunity to deliver numerous bruises and knocks. We now have our happy life and more importantly love life together.

We have sat and made plans for our future as couples who love each other do and having a mini us to love and share our lives was always something that for us was a given.

Sadly because of circumstances outside of our control it would seem that the natural chain of events that bring babies into the lives of loving couples has cruelly been taken away from us and our only opportunity for a family is by way of an intervention through fertility medicine and procedures.

We are as a consequence of NHS funding criteria prohibited funding which means that we have to fund this whole journey ourselves. Now we know this is worth doing a million times over but financially it is way beyond our reach and recognise that we are looking at tens of thousands of pounds of medical bills to achieve the outcome we dream of.

We are on a pathway with Newcastle Fertility Centre and have managed with our meagre funds to cover initial investigations and tests but the recommended ICSI treatment is outside of our budget and that's why we are reaching out for help.

We will continue to work hard and save and make sacrifices because that's what we are prepared to do. Anything it takes will be our mantra but we really need help. Anything  you give would be so appreciated.

This is our first stab at writing this and we plan to give more information and look at how we share our story in the coming weeks.

My name is Chris and I am writing this first bit...somewhat awkwardly but with hope. Rebecca my lovely partner will pick up the reigns soon and do a wholly better job and will do so beautifully....which she does with everything in life.

As Chris (and this will soon be deleted no doubt) I would just ask that you help in any way as this beautiful woman I love would be the most perfect mummy.

To be continued....thanks in advance.
