Our journey through infertility, failed adoptions and now parenthood through the miracle of embryo adoption/donation.

it led me to you

Each year, every tear...it led me to you.

Each pill, every shot....it led me to you.

Each exam, every surgery...it led me to you.

Each negative pregnancy test, every day filled with hopelessness...it led me to you.

Each moment of sadness, every year of waiting...it let me to you.

Each failed adoption, every unsuccessful treatment...it led me to you.

Each pregnancy announcement that was not my own, every Mother's Day I was alone...it led me to you.

The 11 years of infertility were worth each and every lonely, painful step...because it led me to you.

  1. This is beautiful Jess. Maddie will love it once she reads it.

  2. Awesome!
    I pray I'll be able to write something like that soon, too!

  3. I love that our children will always know how much they were wanted, and how much we love them because we had to go through so much to get them.

  4. That's beautiful! Thank you for sharing!


I love comments! They make me feel important.
