And now for something completely different …

hey look phil and mindy made a little human

We are excited to finally announce our news to everyone… we are having a baby! We are beyond excited and only those very close to us really know how much this means to us. It’s been a very long road for us. Very few knew of our struggle to get pregnant. We can’t thank our family & close friends enough for your constant prayer & support. When the doctors told us we had a 1% chance of getting pregnant, my Dad said: “1% and God…that’s all you need!” Of course at the time we felt defeated, but he was completely right.

When we found out our good news, we also knew that when we wrote this post, we wanted to share a little of our experience in order to hopefully help others who might be struggling with infertility. While we were trying, every announcement made by another couple that they were expecting was unfortunately a sad moment for us. Not that we weren’t happy for those people, but it always reminded us of our own struggle. I don’t want this post to be a sad moment for anyone, but one of encouragement. Look at the odds we were given…you can’t get much worse and look, we did it! Granted, we had a lot of help. We took a decidedly “East meets West” approach. With dozens of acupuncture sessions, eastern herbal medicines and modern day western fertility treatments we were finally successful. If you are having difficulties, we highly recommend looking into this method. It definitely worked for us and for so many others. Trust me, our fertility Dr. is still in shock that we are pregnant. All that to say, we are more than happy to share more of our story with anyone who might need a little support. Please feel free to reach out to us. 🙂

We are so very happy and are glad to finally let everyone know! We’ve been off the radar the past month (morning sickness is no joke!) but I look forward to feeling better, hanging out with all our friends again and to all the beautiful weddings we still have to shoot this year! 2011 has been a great year and 2012 is going to be even better!
