I'm gonna

give you some medicine

to get you relaxed.

A couple margaritas are going

to take you to Cancun, OK?




All right.

I never

pictured that is what

it would take to have a family,

but it's worth every penny.

I'd say the whole thing

is way over $200,000.

It's brutal, but-- yeah.

Eventually it will be-- you

know, long term, it'll be fine.

This is my special lady.

All right, I'm gonna

hold on to your hand

while you go to sleep.

And you're my man.

I'm your man.


That's an honor.

Just God and--

just God and you.

Thank you so much.

I'm hoping to try to get

five or six good eggs

for you that are mature.



Here we go.

OK, fire.


I got four

from the first tube.

Five, six.


is very expensive.

A single cycle of IVF, $12,000.

The medications could

be another $5,000.

Now you've got to travel here.

So let's just round up and say,

imagine one of these cycles

costs somebody $20,000.

Now, if we're out looking

for a car, or a boat,

or things like

that, we pretty much

know that that's collateral,

and I can finance that.

Now imagine I sent

you into that car lot,

and you've got a

50/50 shot somebody's

giving you a set of car keys.

But we are taking your $20,000.

Would you even gamble

on something like that?

You wouldn't even gamble

on something like that.

And that's what

they're gambling on.

They're paying for an attempt

to try to have a baby.

More than 7 million people

struggle with infertility

in this country.

Couples who so desperately

want to have a baby,

and just can't do it naturally.

There is almost nothing

they would not try.

Well, you've heard of contests

to win all kinds of things,

like a cruise, or an iPad.

But have you ever heard

of winning a free baby?

The Sher

Institute in Las Vegas--


a national contest.

A video contest--


free in vitro treatments

to one lucky couple, submitting

videos on why they should win.

Hi, I'm Jackie.

Hi, and I'm Kelly.

And we are the Barkers.

We're here today to

talk about a little-known

super villain in the super

hero community, infertility.

Not being able to

have a child of your own

is one of the most

soul crushing,

painful, and humiliating

things you can ever experience.

We believe--

We believe--

--that we could have a baby.

This is my only option, and

it would be a dream come true.

More than anything, I want

to be a mom from the beginning.

We hope that you'll consider

us for this opportunity.

Please vote for us.

Please vote.

We're asking you

to vote for us.

Please vote for us.

Vote for us.

00, 10:30,

11, 11:
30, 12:00.

No, we had 10 today,

nine tomorrow.

Is it 10 today?

10 today, nine

tomorrow, 10 on Saturday.

All right.

It's better than

having 25 in one day.

Well, we're on a roll, so it

really doesn't matter, does it?

We're here to talk

about the I Believe contest,

and this year's version.

You know, what we're thinking

about doing this year is

hosting the contest on YouTube.

Then once we have

our 10 finalists,

that's when we

bring the judges in.

The only other way to do

it is to let it be judged

completely on the internet.

And I just don't like that.

Can I tell you how much

I do not like that?

Do you know what

these people went

through to make their videos?

And to have it boil down

to something as meaningless

as popular--

We see all that, and

we feel that exact sentiment,

but if the true

mission of the contest

is to raise awareness

for infertility,

and get people to watch these

videos who wouldn't watch them

before, the only way

we can accomplish that

is by having the open

voting on the internet.

The big benefit in you

allowing Facebook and YouTube

is strictly for you guys.

Like I said, if I

had my way, I would

eliminate that altogether.


have two goals here.

The first goal we have is

to be able to give away

one cycle to needy people, and

build awareness in the process.

The second is to build the

brand that we are practicing in.

And we need the popular

vote, and the exposure

through the popular

vote to do number two.

If we don't do number two, then

we only have one objective.

And that's altruistic,

and it's great,

but that's not how

the world works.


I think I just touched

your boob, I'm sorry.

That's OK, you're

married to me.

And action!


That's great, I love it.

Making a video like this,

every frame was very personal.

But we try to keep

our sense of humor.

Take three, clapping for sync.

It's a daily struggle.

Hold on, let me start again.

All right.

The script is a struggle.


I think

anyone entering the contest

feels that the

stakes are very high.

They probably feel like

this is our last hope,

this is our last chance.

My doctor said that the only

way that we could get pregnant

was with IVF.

He gave us a 5%

chance without it.

But we cannot afford IVF.

This is

something people

don't normally talk about.

I'm just in awe

of how many people

are struggling with this.

Do I really want to put a

video on for everybody to see

my story and know my business?


But we want this.

This is our last chance.

This is a race for a baby.

This is serious.

This is the only thing I

cannot provide for my wife.

So I'm praying that you take

our lvies into consideration.

They're outing themselves
