Donation Needed For My Book Buddy!

So my favorite book friend and real life friend is wanting so bad to have a baby with her husband… Here is a little info.

After four years of trying to conceive a child, I was told that it would never happen. My endometriosis was so bad that I could barely walk.  I had corrective surgery to fix the issue, but within six months it was back even worse than the first time, and I had to have a hysterectomy when I was only 24 years old.  It is never easy to give up the opportunity to be a mother, but it is especially hard after so many years of trying to become parents.  Surrogacy gives us the option of having our own child.  This is where you come in.  We need help paying for the costs associated with egg donation and surrogacy.  They said it takes a village to raise a child, well it takes a village to fund one also. 

Here is a breakdown of the estimated costs associated with surrogacy.

The surrogacy agency fee = $15,000

The surrogate compensation = $30,000

Medical expenses:
IVF Screening = $7500

Medical Costs of IVF Cycle, including medications = $20,000

Uncovered Medical Expenses (co-pays, prescriptions, etc. for pregnancy) = $1500

Life Insurance for Surrogate =  $1000

Medical Insurance for Surrogate – = $3000, not including deposits and deductibles

Surrogate Disability Insurance = $325

Our Attorney Fees =   $3000

Legal Proceedings, including Pre-Birth Order = $5000

Multiple Birth (per child additional cost) = $5000

C-Section = $3000

Other Invasive Procedure (Amniocentesis, CVS, D&C, Ectopic, etc)   = $1000 per procedure

Loss of Reproductive Capacity =   $5000

Egg Donor Services = $15,000

This does not include Uncovered medical expenses for prenatal care and delivery or Psychological Counseling

Thank you so, so much for taking the time out to read our story.
Even if you cannot afford to assist financially, sharing this with others would be a huge help.

  1. This is exactly what I’m struggling with for the past 2 years as well. My gyno says a hysterectomy is the only option to get rid of the pain but we’re trying to conceive for two years now, so that isn’t an option for me yet. Adoption is just SOOO expensive. Nobody ever tells you this! 30-40k in euros just to get the child from an agency and then you still don’t have all the other expenses mentioned up here 🙁. Lots of hugs and good luck to your friend! 😘

    • Good luck to you guys! I don’t see why adoption is so expensive!!! Especially if you adopt outside of the country because a lot of those babies and kids need homes pretty bad, so you think it wouldn’t be so ridiculous!!! One of my other friends had to go the fertility route, and it worked!

      • Thank you! Neither do I. And the worst part is that most of those kids are mentally and/or physically handicapped AND/or older than 6 and/or need to be adopted with siblings at the same time. I’m from Holland and if I wanted to adopt from the US, it would cost me 50k or something in total and it would most likely be a baby from a drug addict. I’m not saying those children don’t deserve a chance, but at least give them a fair chance by not letting the adopting parents go bankrupt because of it. The hormones for IVF actually make the endo worse for me, so we’ll just have to hope for a miracle for now :).
