Mary Rose and Luke

Mary Rose and Luke are Indiana residents who were the recipients of a $10,000 Coalition Grant.

“My husband Luke and I are so thrilled to announce that the embryo transfer funded by our 2017 Coalition Grant was successful, and we are now the proud parents of Lawrence Mark, born in May, 2018!

Our four-year journey towards IVF included multiple doctors and clinics before we found the right fit for us. We didn’t have any clear reasons for not getting pregnant, and weren’t planning to go the IVF route for many reasons, including financial ones, but we ended up being guided in that direction by the grace of God.

We finally were faced with the reality of trying IVF, and we approached it with much prayer–and we are so grateful to have been blessed with a successful retrieval and transfer on the first try.

In the midst of deciding to go for IVF, we took the opportunity to apply for a Coalition Grant.

We felt such amazing kindness by all the Coalition committee members and the other participants when we met them in September at the Run for Life. What a true blessing, to be loved and cheered on by complete strangers! We were thankful we could take part in the Run for Life that day, and are so impressed with the foundation and the amazing work they are doing to help build families.

Thank you so much, to all who have labored in this foundation and made it possible for us to start our own family. We are so excited to parents, it’s kind of hard to believe!”
