There can be miracles, when you believe…

It is with great joy, but also with a heavy heart, that we announced to the world that we are pregnant with not one, but two miracle babies!

Joy because it is finally our turn to have a family. Joy because we have seen two lines, heard our baby’s heartbeats and allowed ourselves to look to the future. It is with a heavy heart because I know there are so many well deserving people out there still being crushed by the weight of infertility and a dream lost. For every tear of joy, there has been a tear of sorrow. For every moment I have not quite believed, there is another living with the reality of infertility. And as much as my heart has broken, it has also been repaired.

We cannot begin to explain how incredibly blessed we feel. In our wildest dreams we did not imagine that this would be our story. We are so thankful for this journey we have been through. For all of the wonderful people we have met, for all the lessons it has taught us, and for the gift that we have been given. It is true that God works in mysterious ways, and that He has a plan.

I look forward to transitioning this blog from one of infertility, to one of pregnancy, and (God-willing) eventually to one with a focus on family. But I promise to never forget where I came from. To never discount someone’s journey or struggle because my own took a turn for the best. I will never forget the pain that came with each month, the fear of the unknown, or the feeling of being broken. I understand if it is too difficult for some of my followers to continue this journey with me, and I wish you all the best of luck. A family is waiting for you all, one way or another. I just know it.

Baby A & Baby B are due to arrive on October 8, 2016. However, because we are having twins, my doctor said that I would deliver at 36 weeks, which puts us at around September 10th. We found out the wonderful news on February 1, 2016. I have since posted a couple of blogs, but none have revealed our news. I have continued to write about our journey, and I plan to post my entries from the first trimester in the coming days/weeks. These will include pregnancy test day, the day of our first ultrasound, and a reflection on the first weeks being pregnant.

We hope that you will continue this wild ride with us and we cannot wait to see what the future has in store!

    Hi Morgan,

    While I typically do find it difficult to read and/or listen to pregnancy announcements (especially on the first try pregnancies and I know you know how that feels) and although your journey has been shorter than mine, I feel nothing but hope and happiness for you and your husband. In the years of your struggle, you have gone through IVF and writing about it which as I know can be both therapeutic and awful at the same time and these are things I have not done. You have somehow remained strong and positive. Now you know that this wasn’t for nothing and you have 2 healthy babies growing inside you now and that gives me hope in many ways. It gives me and hopefully, others the strength to keep moving towards our dreams of having families of our own in whatever way that is. Congratulations go out to you and your loved ones and remember to enjoy all those little moments that many people take for granted.
