- Couple who have been struggling to get pregnant for 13 years in vain set to become parents

- The pair is expecting three children after their surrogate conceived a beautiful baby girl and they are expecting twins from the woman's sister who volunteered to be a surrogate

- Their journey to parenthood is characterized by miscarriages, infertility, failed adoption and surrogacy, and a jaw-dropping N173 million in medical bills accumulated over the years

35-year-old Lindsay and her 37-year-old husband Brian Vargas, started their journey to becoming parents about a year after they got married.

Just like any other ordinary young couple, the now famous Nebraska couple was expecting to get pregnant and then have a baby little did they know that the quest for children was going to take them over a decade of painful struggles and a lot of tears.

Lindsay said: “I always longed to become a mother. I often became jealous of pregnant women in my life, even those I saw at the grocery store. Infertility couldn't let me get pregnant like them.”

Lindsay's persistent efforts to trigger ovulation came with life-threatening health complications that only contributed further in draining their coffers.

The soon-to-be mother of three said: “My doctor kept increasing the dose beyond the recommended length of time and didn't monitor me. As a result, I developed a softball-sized cyst on my ovaries.”

But even the doctors finally gave up on them. According to Lindsay, the medics said there was nothing more they could do after a last desperate attempt in vitro fertilization ended in yet another miscarriage.

The couple also had multiple failed surrogacy attempts. In addition, many of their efforts to adopt a baby were met with disappointments.

After so much money went down the drain, depleting their savings and retirement accounts without any success, they decided to share their story with GoFundMe , hoping that it will help them raise cash for a final shot at surrogacy.

When her heart-wrenching infertility story went live on GoFundMe, a woman who was touched reached out to Lindsay and Brian. She offered to give them her baby for adoption.

Lindsay said: “A California woman contacted us through the GoFundMe platform and asked if we could adopt her unborn baby and we agreed."
