In the season of miracles, Brian & I are overjoyed and blessed to share we are expecting TWINS this spring! Miracles, indeed. Like so many women, my road to motherhood was not easy. Two years – filled with frustration, pain, heartache, months of failed IUI’s, multiple rounds of IVF, and, for the first time in my life feeling all hope was lost. I was no longer the happy girl everyone knows. I pushed away friends, family, stopped working, stopped living. My path crossed with two angels on earth who convinced to go to Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine, the best fertility clinic in the world. It would be a long journey, several trips to Colorado, more money, injections, heartache, all for our “Hail Mary” shot at what matters most in life. Somehow my heart healed and hope was restored during the time I was in Colorado. I knew in my heart it would work. After many more months, our prayers were finally answered.
In the era of Pinterest perfect pregnancy announcements, I want to be honest. Far too many women walk this painful journey. I would never want anyone out there suffering like I did to think our babies came easily. Do not give up hope. The heart of a woman on this road is brave and courageous. Miracles happen – and sometimes they come in pairs!
