As you know, I love going to the movie theaters! It is one of the main things my husband and I do when we go out. Here are the movies I want to see this month:
Please take a moment to share this on all of your social media pages. Even sharing it just once could make the difference in us raising enough money to be able to afford the surrogacy. Thank you so much!❤
After four years of trying to conceive a child, I was told that it would never happen. My endometriosis was so bad that I could barely walk. I had corrective surgery to fix the issue, but within six months it was back even worse than the first time, and I had to have a hysterectomy when I was only 24 years old. It is never easy to give up the opportunity to be a mother, but it is especially hard after so many years of trying to become parents. Surrogacy gives us the option of having our own child. This is where you come in. We need help paying for the costs associated with egg donation and surrogacy. They said it takes a village to raise a child, well it takes a village to fund one also.
Here is a breakdown of the estimated costs associated with surrogacy.
The surrogacy agency fee = $15,000
The surrogate compensation = $30,000
IVF Screening = $7500
Medical Costs of IVF Cycle, including medications = $20,000
Uncovered Medical Expenses (co-pays, prescriptions, etc. for pregnancy) = $1500
Life Insurance for Surrogate = $1000
Medical Insurance for Surrogate – = $3000, not including deposits and deductibles
Surrogate Disability Insurance = $325
Our Attorney Fees = $3000
Legal Proceedings, including Pre-Birth Order = $5000
Multiple Birth (per child additional cost) = $5000
C-Section = $3000
Other Invasive Procedure (Amniocentesis, CVS, D&C, Ectopic, etc) = $1000 per procedure
Loss of Reproductive Capacity = $5000
Egg Donor Services = $15,000
This does not include Uncovered medical expenses for prenatal care and delivery or Psychological Counseling

For this swap we had to exchange that make our geeky hearts have all the feels. I was paired with Tula from Primary Library Diva.
She got me so much cool stuff!
SO MUCH AWESOME! She got me the Harry Potter Magical Creatures coloring book! Now I have them all! MWAHAHAHAHA. Alice Takes Back Wonderland by David D. Hammons and it looks amazing. I love Alice retellings so much! She got me a Harry Potter light up wand pen. Yes I swished and flicked and soon as I got it! I also got some Funko Pops! and an Alice Mystery Mini (it was the Cheshire Cat.)
THANK YOU SO MUCH TULA!❤
PS: Do you ever participate in swaps? I love them! Which ones do you participate in? How did you find them?
‘It came from the woods. Most strange things do.’
Five mysterious, spine-tingling stories follow journeys into (and out of?) the eerie abyss.
These chilling tales spring from the macabre imagination of acclaimed and award-winning comic creator Emily Carroll.
Come take a walk in the woods and see what awaits you there…
This graphic novel is separated into 5 macabre tales. Easy to read, with beautiful illustrations, and haunting stories, what’s not to love?? The graphics are arresting and I want to hang some of the artwork in my room. That is how good it is. This book is perfect for horror and fairy tale lovers. A lot of reviews talked about how scary the book was, and even adults were saying they couldn’t sleep after reading this in the dark. I, too, read this book at night, but I had no problems drifting off to bed afterwords. Although the stories are ominous, I didn’t find them terrifying, more Brothers Grimm than Stephen King for me. Not that this is a bad thing, not at all. I love fairy tales, especially this dark version.
