Mission Baby Shaffer Fundraiser

If we are friends on Facebook, by now you know that we have started a fundraiser to help finance our next step towards having a baby. This was not an easy decision to make. We did some research and talked about it and we feel this is the best option for us at the moment. it's a really hard decision to put ourselves out there but if we can finally bring home a child it will all be worth it. Asking for help is never easy but we are longing to complete our family and we need help.

We can't promise any perks in return for your assistance, all we can offer is our most sincere gratitude and the promise to be the best parents we can be. We promise to keep you updated about our progress and share pictures and videos of the amazing blessing you are helping us achieve. Every dollar makes a difference and every penny will be used to cover infertility costs. We are not quitters and we will do everything within our power and reach to have a baby.

While donations help, a lot, we also need help spreading word about our fundraiser, the more people we reach, the better chance we have of attaining our goals. If you can share our fundraiser link with everyone you know you'd be helping us greatly.

Deciding to have a public fundraiser to raise money for our next step was not easy, we had to decide if we are ok with sharing all our private struggles publicly and after weighing the pros and cons we feel the positives that may come out of this "oversharing" outweighs what negatives we could find.

So far the support from our friends and family has been amazing and i want to take a moment to thank everyone who donated and to say how very grateful we are for everyone for not posting judgmental and dismissive comments about the route we are choosing; If you have questions about any step of the process please feel free to private message me and i will try to clarify any concerns or questions.

This year our spending will be kept to a minimum, we are cutting down if not eliminating eating out, i will be selling a lot of the things i sew in hopes of raising more money and i also asked a few of the people i follow on instagram if they would consider donating some items for us to sell.

I will try to post an update once a month but since we are not doing any treatments this year i may not have much to update my supporters about except for the monies raised but i guess that will have to do for now. If any of my friends have any ideas they would want to share with us please post them in the comments; we have not done anything like this before so any help is greatly appreciated.

Again thank you all for your time, support, prayers and generosity; you may never know how much it means to us!
