Amanda Cardona and Franky Palma

"My Name is Amanda Cardona and I am 34 years old, from Mexico. My husband is Franky Palma. He is 33 years old and is from Guatemala. We met each other in 2006 in an ESL program for learning English and became friends. We started to spend a lot of time together, our feelings for each other went farther than expected, and we fell in love."

"In 2007, we decided to move in together and in April of 2010 we got married. Now it has been a little over six years since we starting trying to become parents."

Amanda and Frankie received a Life Grant with Dr. Eve Feinberg at Life Foundation Partner Practice Northwestern Fertility and Reproductive Medicine in Highland Park, IL.

“Our IVF cycle was sadly not successful, but we remain hopeful for our future.”

Now it has been a little over six years since we starting trying to become parents.
