I didn’t get a chance to really explain this family’s story so here it is…
In Tanya’s words…
“We married in 2005 and started trying to grow our family in 2008. The journey has been anything but easy. In 2010, we had our first pregnancy and loss. In 2011, we adopted 6 embryos and our hope was renewed. We transferred two embryos in 2012 and our son was due in January but he was born in November, at 33 weeks. He came home after 22 days in the NICU and is now a happy, determined, curious toddler who views life as an adventure waiting to be discovered. In 2014, we decided it was time to give him a sibling. In February 2015, we thawed 2 more embryos for transfer. Unfortunately, one embryo did not survive the thaw process, so another was thawed and the 2 that survived were transferred. Two weeks later, we learned that the transfer was not successful. We were very sad but had hope for our last remaining embryo. We transferred the final embryo in May. Two weeks later, we learned that I was pregnant but it wasn’t looking good. We continued to hold on a thread of hope, but sometimes hope isn’t enough. Only a few days later, we sadly learned my numbers were going down and I would be miscarrying by the end of the week.
We decided to do a balloon release to give us some closure to this chapter of our family’s story. We asked Trisha to take photos to capture the evening so we can look back and remember that special night. Our son is too little to remember but we want him to know how we honored and remembered his 6 siblings in heaven.
We are not sure what God has planned for the future of our family. However, we are assured that His plans are good (Jeremiah 29:11) and perfect (James 1:17). We will continue to trust Him as we wait to see the Glorious Unfolding He has in store for us.”
