This week we are so excited to feature our sister in law Sarah ♥️ We have always been amazed by her strength and resilience in her trials and with this week being National infertility awareness week#NIAW we knew it was meant to be!
I’m Sarah & I’ve been married to my sweet husband Brady for almost 5 years. We’re also auntie & uncle to sweet little Royce. We’ve been struggling with infertility for the past 4 1/2 years. I’ve done multiple fertility treatments including 3 rounds of IVF. Sadly, those 3 rounds resulted in our loss of Twins in February & another sweet baby in October 2017 to miscarriage. Our hearts were shattered, especially mine. Wanting to be a mom is all I’ve ever wanted.
But throughout our struggle with infertility we know God was mindful us. He blessed us with our greatest help, Roycey. It’s probably no coincidence he was born in Oct & our 1st treatment was in Nov. He had a perfect way of making everything better & he helped heal our hearts. He gave us hope & strength to keep moving forward. We really loved him more than anything.
•What has helped Sarah the most after her loss:
Through all the pain & heart ache of infertility & loosing Royce we have found strength & hope in our Savior Jesus Christ. I would not be able to get through any of this without Him. The support & love from my friends & family, even strangers has helped me more than they’ll ever know. My husband has also been such a blessing & help to me. He’s such an example to me of strength & resilience. He won’t ever let me give up.
Serving others has also helped so much. Whenever things get hard or I know a tough day is ahead, serving someone else even if it’s something small, always helps my heart.
•Advice Sarah would give to others that have lost someone:
My advice to anyone going through a loss would be to rely on the Savior Jesus Christ. He can help you better than anyone else ever could. Also to give yourself grace & know it’s okay to feel the things you’re feeling. And to Look for the good. I really believe there is always something good, even if you really have to look hard & it might be small sometimes, but it’s there.
I’m so grateful for this trial because if I didn’t have it, I probably wouldn’t have had the same kind of special bond with my little nephew Roycey. Even though he’s not here with us physically, I have felt him near & I know he is pulling for us in heaven.
