Our Story

You can view the beginning of our story here

To add to that story...

Our first beautiful miracle is now 2 1/2 years old and we couldn't ask for a sweeter boy. God has truly blessed us. In January of 2010 we went back to the fertility doctor to see what we could do about getting pregnant again. We had already been trying for a while. The doc said, again, nothing but IVF will work for us. God said, "Oh really?" We found out a week later I was pregnant. Unfortunately we didn't know that I had, since Ryan was born, developed a bad case of endometriosis. I miscarried very early on. While heartbroken I knew that God was with me.
The last five to six months have been hard not knowing what our options would be for another pregnancy. We went back to the doctor again and had some tests done and found that IVF really is all that will help us.

So, we start on the journey again. It's not the road I would have chosen to go down in my life, but God has a BETTER plan for me...for us. I know without a doubt that God carried us through this tough time because He wants us to tell our story. If that is all I'm able to do through this website then I'm overjoyed.

I want everyone reading this to know that we are not desparate for money; that is not the reason I want to sell these dresses and crafts. I'm partly doing this to contribute to the cost of the IVF, partly doing it for self therapy, but mostly hoping that our story can bless others in the process.

I hope you see something you might like. If not, I ask that you simply please pray for us, and if we can pray for you please let me know.

  1. It's so good to watch my two girls play together and enjoy each others company. "It makes me feel 'goot' in my heart'"
