I’m 31 years old. My husband is 30 years old. We have been married for 6 years and trying to have a child for 4 years. We work on a cattle ranch and have health insurance through the Affordable Care Act. We are still paying off student loans, working hard, laughing everyday, healthy, seeing beautiful country, hanging out with friends, aspiring to do more. In all this, everyday, there is deep pain and fear because of all that we’ve gone through to try and conceive and the possibility that it may never happen. But it’s because we are insured through the Affordable Care Act that we can still pursue having a child, which is more meaningful to me than anything else in my life apart from my husband and marriage.
This was written in Feb. It is now July! Why are there no comments? Does anyone read any of these stories? If not then why do this? I volunteered for four years in Oakland, CA homeless shelters in 1987. If you are homeless you have no insurance. Besides there are 23mil uninsured even with Obamacare. Millions in poverty and homeless too. You think insurance is their main problem when over 56mil are on food stamps(EBT)! Instead of wasting your time here go out and feed the homeless. They need help NOW! Sell one of your horses and get invitro! At least you aren’t homeless!
Hi Stephen, this site has seen only light activity. I have to admit I stopped months ago trying to draw people here; I found a whole raft of other sites doing the same thing.
At least one person read this story, thanks for stopping here.
