Family Stories

Lora and Robert

Lora and I met on match.com 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. After receiving an IVF Life Grant through Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago, we delivered a baby girl named Caroline in June of 2019.
