Family Stories

Lora and Robert

Lora and I met on in November 2010. She’d just moved to the Chicagoland area. I took a chance and messaged her first. Almost four years later we were married in her hometown of Ames, Iowa. We live in the Kenosha area now. Lora works as a youth librarian, while I’m a barista, writer, and aspiring voice actor.

Our journey toward a family has been a rocky one, having included a surgical procedure and six IUI cycles. With IVF a likely prospect, we applied for the Life Foundation grant. We were overjoyed to hear we had received the grant, and anxiously began the next phase in our fertility journey .The future looks bright, and we could not be more excited!

Lora and Robert were awarded an IVF Life Grant through Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.

When we found out that the next step was IVF, we thought our dreams were shattered
