Alexa and Jason: Love, Longevity, and the Path to Parenthood


We met back in 1999, when we were both in fourth grade. After a long friendship and an even longer courtship (including five years of long-distance dating), we got married in December 2015. As we began planning to expand our family, it became clear IVF would be our most likely path to having a successful outcome. 

We are so excited and thankful to be recipients of the CCFB grant, especially during a time when there are so many other uncertainties. To have this added security is so reassuring as we continue on this journey toward building our family!

Alexa and Jason are recipients of the Path to Parenthood Grant from the Jewish United Fund – Chicago.
