Brian and I got married right out of college in 1998 and started “trying” to have children three years later. In 2002 Dr. Keenan had to remove both my fallopian tubes because they were blocked. This blockage was due to scar tissue from a surgery I had soon after I was born. What a shock it was to go from trying to have children “naturally” to then being faced with traditional adoption or In Vitro Fertilization. After many years of unsuccessfully going through IVFs then traditional adoption we finally got to where we were supposed to be, embryo adoption. In April of 2008 our dream of having a child finally came true. We were not only blessed with one healthy child but two. They were born at 30 weeks and had to stay in the NICU for 49 days. Julian and Natalie are now 21 months old and are on the go all the time! It was a very long journey to get here, but now we are enjoying our time with our children more than we ever thought possible. God has truly blessed us!
