Please support Childrens Healthcare and our family! Vote today!

Our daughter's school is having a family dance off video contest. Not only will it support the children's healthcare of Atlanta, but it will also support our family. Having her was not only difficult physically and emotionally, but it was challenging financially as well. We would love to support Children's Healthcare and be able to put the winning funds towards providing her with a sibling someday soon. Thanks for all your love and support!

A year since we started IVF

It is so hard to believe that 1 year ago we were prepping for our egg retrieval. My last cycle was Jan 25th and then the shots began! We did our egg retrieval on Feb 15th, 22 eggs were retrieved and 5 days later we transferred 1 beautiful, perfect embryo. 10 of our eggs fertilized and 7 made it to a day 5 blastocyst stage. We almost transferred 2 embryos and more than likely if we would have, we would have twins right now. Then, we found out we were pregnant! It has been the hardest, most amazing journey that we have ever experienced and we are so much more grateful for our baby girl and eachother because of it. The progesterone shots were so extremely painful and the emotional journey was exhausting, but Thank you God, we now have the most adorable, sweet baby girl!

I know we will have to experience a large part of this journey again for #2 and we are excited about that, because we know together we can get through anything. We pray that our FET journey (when we decide to begin) will be just as successful!
