Tristan Matthew & his 7 Siblings

My husband and I have been married and trying to have a baby for nearly 5 years.


We got pregnant soon after we married and miscarried at only 8 weeks. We got pregnant again after a few months and made it to nearly 19 weeks pregnant with a baby boy that we named Bryan Thomas, he was born with no breath and a 2 vessel cord. We had him cremated and ashes spread in a memorial garden with other angel babies. Not but a few months later we were pregnant again with another boy we named Tristan Matthew (pictured).

At 22 weeks I went into preterm labor and was forced to deliver too early for him to survive on his own. He lived for 3 hours and then passed, we buried him 2 days later. Nearly a year later we found ourselves pregnant again but had an ectopic pregnancy at 6 weeks, we were forced to abort the baby in danger of my life. Throughout the next 2 years we had 3 more early loses the doctors thought to be chemical pregnancies. In March of 2013 we did an IVF cycle that failed and again left us with a chemical pregnancy.

We are now told by doctors we will never to able to have a child of our own. We are now on a waiting list to adopt embryos and again try to fulfill our dreams to be parents.
