Teachers go to school each day and make countless differences in the lives of their young students without anyone knowing what is really happening in their own personal life. Teachers are the best at concealing their fears, struggles and pain. Did you know that 1 in 8 women have trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy? A couple only has a 20-25% chance of conceiving in any given month and the average cost of one cycle of in vitro fertilization (IVF) can cost as much as $20,000 not including the testing and procedures received prior to the fertility treatment. Domestic adoption costs can range from anywhere from $20,000-$50,000 and the wait can take up to five years for a healthy infant.
But after all the money spent and pain suffered, miracles do happen every day and that is what we must all remember. Be inspired by those teachers who have courage and strength to fight this battle and make differences at the same time. Support teachers around the world who are infertility warriors and Ashlyn Ellsworth from The Creative Classroom as her and her husband build their forever family through adoption one day as they wait for their miracle to finally happen!
