The next post in this series is by Melissa from Triumphs and Trials. She is amazing and you will see that from this post. I also met Melissa at a blog conference in February. So glad that I did because she is an inspiration to me!
I am the oldest child in my family. When I was eight years old my mom had my third sibling...a little girl. I love my little sister. I loved rocking her to sleep and feeding and playing with her. I was the girl who loved to babysit. My ultimate goal in life was to be a wife and mother. I got married at 24 and after three short months we decided to start trying for a baby “not preventing.”
We believed that if Heavenly Father wanted us to have a baby it would happen...but nothing happened. It was a little after a year of trying, when we started infertility treatments. We tried everything we'd heard about...Clomid, Famara, Homeopathac doctors, surgery and IUI. For years there were countless nights me and my husband would cry and wonder if we would ever have a child of our own. I remember begging Heavenly Father to send me just one! If He would send us just one child, I promised that I would be HAPPY.
We had been trying for over four years when we got our first positive pregnancy test! We were so excited, that we took at least five tests before going to the doctor the next day. We worried probably the whole nine months and then we had our MIRACLE! I felt so complete and so blessed. I loved having a sweet baby in our home.
