One year ago today Chad and I took the last step of the IVF process, the embryo transfer. For those of you that are unfamiliar with IVF, you can find more information about it here. As you can see from the link, the success rate for women under 35 (like me) is at BEST 30-35% according to the American Pregnancy Association.
Here is a picture of our three embryos:
Exactly one year later, here are our two beautiful, amazing, healthy children:
Chad says that we are some of the few parents that can say that we saw our children when they were 6 cell organisms! When I think of the entire process it reminds me that every life is a miraculous gift.
Brady and Chloe---you are so precious to us. Every day we have with you is something to treasure. We feel so privileged to be your parents. We loved you before you ever came into being, and we love you always.
