7 years ago today we experienced our first miscarriage.

7 years ago today we lost our pregnancy innocence.

7 years ago today our first dream of having another child close in age to our son died.

7 years ago today we tried to understand why.

7 years ago today we tried to accept what had happened.

7 years ago today we tried not to give up hope.

7 years ago today we believed that we could get pregnant again someday.

7 years ago today we believed that we would get to bring another child home.

7 years ago today we never imagined where our journey to expand our family would take us.

7 year ago today we hoped and prayed that someday we would have the family of our dreams.

7 years later the pain of our first pregnancy loss is still here, but its softer now.

7 years later we are able to appreciate some of the good that has come from our experience with secondary infertility and loss.

7 years later we are doing our best to be grateful for what we have without forgetting what we have lost.

7 years later we feel blessed and lucky for our family, just the way we are.
