Eva’s Birth Story and Our Seven Year Battle with Infertility.

Many of you may know that  my husband and I struggle with infertility.  This has been a long and painful journey, with many heart breaking disappointments.  The thought of not being able to have children was one of the most difficult trials I have had to face.  I longed to be a mother.  And infertility almost took that away from me.  I am and will be forever grateful to all the doctors we have worked with over the past 6 years.  I am eternally grateful to the birth-mother and father of my second child, Lia.  Their love and sacrifice for us is something I will never be able to truly understand…or repay.

This past March I gave birth to our third daughter.  We were blessed with this little miracle by the amazing process of In-Vitro.  We have gone through In-Vitro 5 times and were able to have two beautiful, healthy baby girls.  The other 3 times were negative results and they were some of the darkest moments in my life.  I withdrew from myself just to survive.  Anger was my constant companion.

But the light came when we were able to have Hannah, our oldest.  Then the light came again with our Lia.  Now, once again we have been blessed with Eva, my angel.  I am trying to capture every moment with my little Eva.  Every crossed eyed look, every little sqeeky noise, her little tougue sticking out, the tiny little hairs on her arms and shoulders.  I am soaking in every moment I have with her close to my chest.  Every little gassy smile.  Her tiny fingers and toes.  I do not know if I have the strength to go through In-vitro again or wait for the power of adoption to bring another precious child to come into my arms.  So I will just enjoy every moment I can with my Eva and hope that none of my children will ever have to face what we have faced.

I am excited for the day I can finally feel free from the chains of this wretched infertility monster, and just enjoy the rest of my life with my family.

 

Here is Eva’s birth story.  My husband took most of the pictures and did a wonderful job.  Thank you Flavio, for being my best friend through this journey we have endured.  Thank you for being a wonderful father to our girls.  I love you. You are my everything.

 

Her story may seem short, and it was.  I was in labor for 3 hours and pushed for 3 minutes!

We are so grateful to our Heavenly Father for bringing these three little people into our lives.

We are truly blessed.

    I thought about how I worded the comment above, and am hoping it didn’t come off insensitive. I just want to clarify that I meant, I don’t understand your own struggle, because I haven’t been through it myself. Just happy for you and your cute little ones!

    • No! It wasn’t insensitive at all! You are very sweet. Lol

  • So happy for you all!! She is so beautiful, and the pictures really do tell such a beautiful story! Congratulations on another beautiful angel!
