We have previously discussed how crowdfunding is being utilized to raise funds necessary to complete a surrogacy journey. In this episode, we are pleased to have Jennifer DelVero as our guest. She and her husband have spent the past five and half years attempting to build their family. After more than 10 IUIs, several IVFs, and even a donated embryo, she has been unable to achieve pregnancy. They have financially invested signficantly in each of these collective efforts, and now are in the process of utilizing crowdfunding on youcaring.com, where their donation request, "Never Lose Hope," is currrently active. Jennifer is seeking $15,000 for costs to cover egg donation, and she is more than 1/3 of the way to meeting that goal.

After a trip to Russia as a young girl Megan knew some day she would adopt a child. When Megan grew up and married she held tight to that dream, yet went on to have three children of her own. Once they were out of diapers the pull to adopt was getting stronger and stronger.

Until the summer of 2012 when Megan began really feeling the tug on her heart to adopt. Megan heard about an agency called Project 143, P143 matches families in the US with orphans overseas, the children come stay with these Christian families for four weeks during Christmas & 5-6 weeks in the summer. Before they knew it a little girl was brought to them for a short stay, yet during this time a bond was made.www.orphanhost.blogspot.com
