To know my story, you have to know my past. I come from a large blended family with numerous brothers and sisters. I am an aunt to so many I have to stop and count. When I was sixteen, I was diagnosed with endometriosis. I didn’t quite grasp then how much this would affect my future. Around the age of 25, I started realizing I may never be a mother. Would someone marry me? Could someone accept that to love me means to only love me? We may never have a family of our own.
Luckily, I found the perfect man. Todd comes from a large and insanely close family. In my opinion he was born to be a family man….born to be a dad. I was always upfront with him and he never wavered. He loved me! He wanted to marry me, regardless! We started trying soon after we got married. We dealt with all the things couples with infertility deal with…the constant questions. “When are you going to have a baby?”, “Try this”, “Try that” and “This is what worked for my friend”. Two years later, still nothing. We had started settling into life as a childless couple and then like magic…a positive pregnancy test!
