Chrystelle and Brian

Family Stories

Chrystelle and Brian


Chrystelle is French, Brian is a Wisconsinite. She works as a CNA and goes to school in hopes of becoming a nurse. He is an active member of the US Navy, also working in the medical field. We enjoy going on walks with our dogs, splurging on French bread & cheese, or laze around in front of a movie. Together, we envision a house filled with the laughter of our offspring. We sum up our infertility story within the quote: “It’s hard to wait around for something that might never be, but it’s harder to let go when it is everything you have ever wanted.”

Chrystelle and Brian are recipients of a Family Building Financial Grant.  They welcomed their daughter Elise into the world December 2021!

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