Infertility Awareness
"Infertility has been a struggle for us. Our first round of IVF luckily worked and we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl. We wanted to extend our family, amd did a frozen embryo transfer. We got pregnant!! But sadly lost the baby shortly after. With only one embryo left we decided to give it another shot. We discovered we were pregnant. I bought the blanket that says "God knew my heart needed you." It's a beautiful blanket that described our struggle perfectly. After the storm, we got our rainbow and God knew I needed this baby. Ironically enough, we discovered at 26 weeks pregnant that our baby would be born with a congenital heart defect, known as Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. But I knew that we would be okay because God knew I needed this baby. It was so hard when Lillian was born. She went through a lot. Including 3 open heart surgeries, 4 blood transfusions, 3 cardiac arrests, 2 infections, 3 days on ECMO (life support), 7 seizures, and so much more. I didn't fully understand this blanket until we discovered Lillians heart received donor Aortic Valve and other tissue to repair it. We found the donor family, and it all made sense. God knew Lillians heart needed this little boy, Logan. Its a tragic accident and a terrible loss that Logan's family suffered, but God has known all along what all my heart and Lillians needed. Fertility was so hard. I prayed for a child to love, and was blessed with two beautiful girls."
