A Utah woman has turned to panhandling to help make her dream of becoming a mother a reality.

Jessica Gale and her husband have been trying to have a baby for 13 years, with no luck.

Her husband has a rare genetic condition that makes conception nearly impossible.

Gale works at a hair salon and as a custodian at a local school.

Recently, she's added a third money-making venture.

"I actually never thought I'd be standing on a corner asking for money. We're going to do everything we can to have a child," Gale said.

Gale hopes to earn enough money for in vitro fertilization, which she said costs between $800 and $1,000 a month.
