So much has happened since my last blog post!! I wish I had kept writing over the last year, but life gets crazy! Right now, all FOUR kids are in bed, so it's the perfect time to sit down and write!
Highlights of the past year:
July 2016- Found out I was pregnant for the third time
August 2016- Saw our first heartbeat on a sonogram!! Survived Maddox breaking his femur (but we met the nurse we named Covington after!)
September 2016- Found out we were having a BOY
December 2016- Took an amazing road trip for the twins to see snow for the first time! We went to Georgia, Tennessee, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Niagara Falls!
February 2016- Emily got married!!!
March 23, 2016- Covington was born! The twins became a big brother and big sister, and we became a family of 5!!
April 27, 2016- Got the craziest phone call ever!! The twins biological mom gave birth to a baby girl on April 26, and long story short- we are adopting her too!! Sweet baby Copeleigh Beth entered our lives in the most unexpected way possible!
I'm going to take as much time as I can over the next several weeks to write down all of the ways that God brought us to our 4 children. I'm constantly being reminded each day of different things that played a part in where we are today! More blogging to come soon!
- 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!
