Marlena and Adam have been married since 2012 and have desperately wanted a family. It's been 6 years of trying to make that dream a reality.
"In 2014 I went to the hospital for severe abdominal pain and found out I had appendicitis and needed to have surgery to remove my appendix. When I woke up from surgery I was told that had been a massive cyst on one of my ovaries that had ruptured and was bleeding and to stop the bleeding the surgeon removed the whole ovary. I was also told that I had stage IV endometriosis. Since then I have had 2 more surgeries to clean up the endometrial adhesions. I have done 6 months of lupron depo treatment as well as about 5 or 6 cycle of femara and TI. Our only option now is to persue IVF. "
