About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, and I am a Christian, saved and sustained daily by my wonderful Savior. I am a wife to my high school sweetheart, Mitch; we got married at 19! I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, an aunt, a co-worker, and a woman that struggles with infertility. God has used this struggle to completely transform my life. I have experienced fear, hope, anxiety, compassion, trust, peace, tears, excitement, pain, laughter, and many other things that come with infertility. But most of all, I have a deeper trust and friendship with my Creator and my husband, and for this, I am forever thankful. The purpose of this blog is for me to remember the ups and downs of this trial, and how my Savior has brought me through it all. For those who have never struggled in this area, I hope this blog will help you see a glimpse into the life of someone struggling with infertility, so that you might better know how to encourage them through these difficult times. I also pray that this blog will help other women struggling in this area to know that you are not alone! There is a river of peace that is found in Christ that can help you through even the darkest of circumstances, I promise!

Double The Blessings & Double The Hope

Babies,

Today's the day!!! Today is the day, that for the first time ever, I will get to carry you in my belly!

Here's the catch- there's TWO of you in there right now!!!

We just left the doctor's office, and our dream of having twins just might become a reality. The doctor allowed us to transfer 2 beautiful embryos. Now, we just have to wait 10 days to find out if I will get my first ever positive pregnancy test!

This has been a long road, full of trials and pain and tears, but today, we are full of laughter. We are full of hope and excitement and BBQ! We are on our way to our favorite BBQ restaurant now, not bad for your first meal with mommy :)

I LOVE YOU BOTH SO MUCH!

Father's Day

In preparing for the most exciting/stressful/hopeful/nerve wrecking procedure of our lives, I am trying my best to stay full of prayer and hope. I am staying hopeful that this procedure will work on the first try, and that our official due date will be Fathers Day 2015!!

This is the poem I wrote that I will give to Mitch to tell him that we're pregnant if the procedure works!

Hey dad! It’s me, your little squirt
Just wanted to say “hi”
And introduce myself to you,
I’m anything but shy.

I have brown hair, and big huge eyes
And funny looking toes.
A mole is on my left pink cheek,
Next to my little nose.
  
I’m good with numbers and my hands
I love to travel too.
I like to make my mommy smile,
I got that one from you.

I am a Boston Red Sox fan,
I knew that from the start
My name is from the T-station
That stole my momma’s heart
  
Mom says that I’m a Cowboys fan
But you put up a fight
I haven’t made my mind up yet,
But I’ll turn out alright.

There is one thing I know for sure,
My blood is black and red.
I’ll always be a Bulldog fan,
Until the day I’m dead.
  
Those are the basics about me
The rest will have to wait
We still have my whole life ahead
And memories to make

There’s one more thing for you to know
My heart is like a sponge
I’ll soak up everything you say
So teach me when I’m young.

The things I’ve learned from you and mom
Just from what I can hear
There’s power in the blood of Christ
And patience, trust, and prayer.

I know you’ve waited for these words
So mom and I agreed
I’d get to be the one to write
The words you’ve longed to read

God answered yours and mommy’s prayer
The time is finally here
You’ll get to hold me the first time
On Father’s Day next year!
