About Me:

I met my husband in 2009, we married in 2010, and we've been a couple of parental wannabes ever since.

Years of trying to conceive have brought confusion, frustration, sadness, bitterness, and heartache. We've gone through multiple failed fertility treatments over the years, including an IUI and three rounds of IVF, multiple canceled cycles and seven losses before seeking out an expert in reproductive immunology to help solve the riddle that was our infertility. After an extensive panel of blood work, Dr. Braverman suspected I had endometriosis, which was confirmed by a laparoscopy in January of 2019. One month later, to our shock, we were pregnant naturally!

We pray that our story brings you hope that someday you, too, will achieve your dream!
