Well! The fundraising is going a lot better and I even decided to open a Zazzle shop at the suggestion of someone I don't know who sent me an email saying it worked for her! It's amazing how many people out there, who I don't even know, want to help out or at least share our story and offer encouragement. We even got a donation from someone who found my blog through TB and wanted to help out. When I got her donation, I actually cried. Pretty freaking amazing and thoughtful. I'm hopeful that if I keep at it, we will get there or at least get close enough to try and figure it out. My sister's are being really helpful too. They are trying to encourage people to donate just a little bit because if everyone does (they have massive FB friends lists) then we will reach our goal in no time. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I'll tell you what, though, these BCPs are kicking my butt! I am so nauseated and I have a headache and my ovaries are freaking out! So I hope we can get the money thing figured out soon!
We did apply for a financing program and got denied because we are self employed. It really sucked. We were hoping that if we could get the loan, we could at least move forward sooner rather than later. The finance company was very nice and tried to help but even DH's stellar credit and our home and business ownership doesn't negate the fact that proving our income as owners is difficult. C'est la vie. Hopefully we can raise enough with our fundraising!
