Crystal & Ben's Story
East Haven residents Crystal and Ben Pelletier desperately want to start a family. But due to health complications of Crystal's, a pregnancy would put her and her child's health at risk.

"We are a young, loving couple that would give anything to help a child in need. Please help us in our journey to raise funds to make an adoption possible," the couple writes on their GoFundME page.
