Thank you so much for supporting us as we get ready for our first child.
Please know that your presence in our lives and at our celebrations for Baby Shapiro are certainly enough present for us.
For those of your who wish to honor Baby Shapiro, please consider donating to one of the following:
(note: we are NOT suggesting a $100 donation; this is just how the page will open)
“1 in 8 couples (or 12% of married women) have trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy.” (2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth, CDC) from Resolve . As many of your know, Scott and I struggled to conceive naturally. We were very fortunate to be able to work with UCSF and the doctors, nurses, and office staff worked together to make our baby dreams come true. Please consider donating to UCSF so that they can continue to further their research in this important health topic.
The Alex Lowe Foundation educates and provides resources to sherpa and guides in the Himalayas. Alex was a world class climber who died in the region. His widow Jenni set up this foundation to continue his legacy. Scott spent three weeks trekking and climbing in the Khumbu region in 2016 and could envision the impact that any contribution could make.
For those who wish to express their sentiments for the next steps for our family in the form of a gift, here are some items we are in need of (we will also be looking for items second-hand). Thank you!!
