"After having our first little miracle following a miscarriage we had trouble having a second baby. We had many tests done and saw several doctors and everything seemed to come back within normal range, until the last test we had done. A test to check the quality and quantity of my egg reserve. I remember the feelings I had when finding out my hormone levels were that of someone twice my age. At age 25 how could it be so hard for me to conceive naturally? We were so shocked and discouraged. Not knowing what the future held made us lean on God more than ever before. We knew we had to put this in His hands and trust that He had the perfect plan for our family. During this time I would often feel hopeful and encouraged when seeing pictures and stories on Modern Burlap. Every single blanket I saw spoke to me and reminded me what a great God we have. After trying multiple fertility treatments without good results we took a break to spend time as a family and focus on all the good God has blessed us with! The following month, after over 2 years of trying, and when we least expected it...God gave us our second little miracle and today she 2 months old. I now have realized that there was a reason I went through this season/struggle. Maybe I needed this struggle to become closer to my Savior. Or maybe He was preparing me to be there for someone else in a similar situation. Whatever the reason I am glad I went through this. It definitely was not easy but I can honestly say I wouldn’t trade this part of my story. I feel I am stronger, and closer to my God and my family because if this journey. #cecilyelizabeth #lerajayne #miraclebabies #modermburlap #lowamh #Dominishedovarianreserve #secondaryinfertility #NIAW "
