Nice to meet you all – Ora and Stav
Young, in love, married for a year and dreaming of becoming parents.
I was born to a religious home and one of five sisters.
A house with only girls is an experience in itself.
But how tough it is to be the only sister who hasn't had her period yet…
From a young age I found myself running from doctor to doctor, various tests, pills and lots of faith and hope!
My classmates are getting excited, my little sisters are also going through a change.
They turn from young girls into little women.
I try to avoid any conversation at home or in class about menstruation, marriage, children… and every conversation about it makes my heart pinch. I still have hope that my day will come and menstruation will appear.
At the age of 18, high school graduation, another in-depth examination and the doctor tells us “I don't see any uterus!” I will never forget the silence in the room and my mother's look.
The thoughts of who would want to marry me?
Or what does it mean I have no uterus?
How will I have aFamily? Children??
My head couldn’t stop thinking about it…
When I met Stav I realized that I had won pure and unconditional love!
I told him on the first date that I was born without the option to get pregnant and the only way is surrogacy.
His response was the simplest and strongest “together we will face whatever comes”, and that he wants to be with me on this journey.
Although it means we will have to put aside our dreams like our own house, because surrogacy is a very expensive process.
Indeed today we live in the attic of his parents in order to save the money for starting a family and fulfilling our biggest dream – to be parents.
Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) Syndrome – to be born without a womb, is quite rare, and leaves us with no choice but to resort to a surrogacy process.
The procedure is very long and expensive, without the participation of the fund or the state we alone, unfortunately, cannot meet the required amount.
We appeal to you to open your heart and take part in our dream of becoming parents.
A We find it so hard to be on the side of the asker instead of the giver, yet we still do it.
