Naturally Pregnant With Twins

Our journey to parenthood was nothing like we planned, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. My husband and I were married in 2014 and soon felt the desire to grow our family. In the spring of 2016, I suffered a ruptured cyst which would lead to a series of tests and many doctor visits before I was eventually diagnosed with endometriosis.

We first began to talk about adoption even before we were married. We heard so many successful adoption stories and knew that God was placing this call on our hearts. As we grew in our marriage and realized our path to parenthood might not be through a natural pregnancy, we began to contemplate even more our call towards adoption. We prayed about it often, searching for ways in which we wanted to expand our family. We realized our calling was adoption and finally submitted our paperwork in July of 2017. For two years, we continued to pray for a miracle, surrendering our desires to God as we waited to see how He was going to grow our family.

In March of 2019, as we were continuing to pursue adoption, I felt the need to pray that my body be healed from the endometriosis and asked the Lord to soon bring a child into our lives. My husband and I prayed the “14 Verses for Your Two Week Wait,” from the In Due Time website, and to our surprise, we became pregnant that very same month! Fast forward a couple of weeks and we found out that God didn’t just bless us with one but TWO sweet miracles! Our miracle babies Hannah and Leo, were born in November 2019. Through it all, we were touched by God’s faithfulness and unending love for us as he fulfilled the desires of our hearts. What a beautiful journey it has been!
