Family Stories

Sabrina and Daniel


My husband and I have been together for ten years this January. Half of those years have been spent trying, without success, to have a family of our own. We were diagnosed with unexplained infertility earlier this year. The realization that not only were we unlikely to conceive on our own, but also that our insurance would not cover any infertility treatments, was a devastating blow.

Just as we were resigned to giving up our dream, to have a family, the Chicago Coalition for Family Building gave us something we haven’t had in a long five years, hope! Hope that our dreams of having a family could one day become a reality. Hope that we can now try an IVF cycle and the financial burden was lifted. Regardless of the outcome, I am already beyond thankful to this grant for giving us hope and the possibility of making our dream a reality!

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!!

Sabrina and Daniel are recipients of a donated IVF cycle with our Partner Practice, The Advanced IVF Institute, and were proud to welcome their baby girl, Mareli, in November, 2022!

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