    @JoeBlow, that's a point I hadn't thought of. However, money is hardly an issue when you're talking about human life, so to me it doesn't matter.

    I'm very happy for this couple. Unfortunatly not every couple with fertility issues end up having a so much desired baby.

    My husband and I have been facing infertility for 7 years now. It's been a long and painful fight. We went through a lot of treatments, IVF etc but no success. It's been very very hard for us. Because my body can't stand the treatments anymore we've decided to stop the IVF process. We've lost the battle, but not the war! Because this trial made us stronger I think we won! Infertility is actually the worst thing that could ever happen to me but now I can tell that this trial is the biggest blessing I've ever received. It made me discover who I really am. Our marriage is so much stronger now. God's answer to our prayer is "no", but it makes me love Him even more, because He trusts me enough to give me this heavy burden to carry all my life. The burden is not lighter, but my back is stronger.

    I am so happy that this couple's infertility journey ended with a precious baby for them to love.
    However, we need more stories about couples whose journeys do NOT end with being able to have a child (either biologically or through adoption) and whose faith remains strong, even when God's answer to 'please give me children' is 'no'.

    One thing to note.

    Many on the right are pushing for "personhood" rights for the unborn. If this ever gets pushed through, the cost of many of the fertility clinic options would be pushed even higher as they typically have several "viable embryos" in the freezer.

    Personhood rights would end that practice as they could no longer be "destroyed".
