Amber Simmons and Scott Eaker

“We never imagined that we would have trouble getting pregnant, but it has given us a glimpse into the struggle of many. It’s not a road that we walk alone, but it is filled with ups and downs that can feel lonely, and although we are thrilled for those around us that are having children, we can’t wait until we can see that day happen for us.”

Unsuccessful IUI cycles and the need for IVF led Amber and Scott to look for resources. They received a Life Grant for a donated IVF cycle with with Dr. John Rinehart of Life Foundation Partner Practice Reproductive Medicine Institute in Evanston, IL. Unfortunately, their first cycle did not bring the outcome they wanted, but Amber and Scott remain hopeful.

"We are now in the early stages of moving forward with adoption. It has been a difficult road, but we are ready to move onto the next season of life.”

We never imagined that we would have trouble getting pregnant, but it has given us a glimpse into the struggle of many.
