Amanda you are so brave for sharing your story. You are the true definition of strength. Such a beautiful couple inside and out <3
" Our journey with infertility started nearly three years ago. When my husband Jason and I got married in February 2015 everyone joked that we would soon after have a “honeymoon baby.” I too believed that to be true! My whole life I wanted nothing more than to be a wife and a mother. This was my calling, my passion and I was finally going to get to live it. The excitement and anticipation soon grew to worry and doubt with every negative test, month after month. Since then I have gone to countless doctor appointments, seen specialists, have done acupuncture, and have been poked and prodded more times than I can count. I had a laparoscopy procedure performed and have gone through two heartbreaking failed IUIs. These past three years have tested every ounce of my faith. They have forever changed my spirit but they have also made me more compassionate, understanding, patient and aware. We still don’t have answers but we do have trust and hope in the Lord’s will and timing. Through God’s grace I am learning to walk the line that is feeling the ache of an empty womb while rejoicing with those whose wombs continue to grow. I’m letting this pain draw me closer to God and to my husband. I have so much love to give and I know our story isn’t over."
