The picture above features just some of the hundreds of syringes and dozens of drug vials she went through, as part of her fertility treatments, shaped into a circle around two baby onesies, one that says “Worth the Wait” and the other that reads “Wait and Wait and Wait.”

“We thought about how to announce our two miracles to the world. Everything we could think of fell short of doing them justice. Doing ourselves justice, for every trial and tribulation we have been through these past years.

Taking out these needles by the handful to take this photograph was… surreal. Half way through my hands started to quiver, my breath got short, and I had to stop. I sat down, looked at it and started to cry.

Not because I was sad about what it took to get here, but because it was a representation of my world, our world, for the past over two and a half years staring back at me.

There was a lot of pain, hope, and fear behind each of these needles. Each one representes a different day, a different path, a different emotion. It’s a lot to take in. After a good cry, the more I looked at it, the more the needles started to blur together. Now all I see are these tiny onesies that so perfectly sum up our journey: Worth the wait. And wait, and wait, and wait.

The hardest part of this journey wasn’t having to do IVF. Getting to that fork in the road is heartbreaking and difficult for anyone, but it was not my darkest hour.

My darkest hour was going through an entire cycle and losing embryo after embryo; 5. Coming so far only to miscarry. Getting to where all the hope, the money, all of what could have been your children were gone. The End. “We are so sorry Mrs. Walker, but your last attempt was unsuccessful…”
