On August 16, 2008, my beautiful little sister, Kimberly married her long time friend, and soul mate, Kevin. I was so honored to be apart of her special day and I couldn't wait for her to begin to grow her family. Just a few months later, they came to us with the news that their family was going to be growing. Unfortunately, in March of 2009, the bad news came that they had lost their child. Baby Kay Jarvis was the first miscarriage my sister and her husband have experienced; it hasn't gotten easier.
The picture posted above was during our 2013 Fall family photo session where they announced that they were pregnant once again! With our fingers crossed and many prayers, our hearts were broken with the news of their fifth miscarriage in November of 2013. It was then that they decided to pursure other routes.
While I have been more than willing to carry a child for them, it is something that they truly want to experience for themselves. Honestly, I want that for them as well. The doctors have found that it could be possible to have a successful full term pregnancy if they use IVF (in vitro fertilization). Now begins the process of trying to collect the funds necessary to be able to hold a beautiful baby (or more) in their arms. We are reaching out to those family and friends who have been eagerly supporting Kim and Kevin through these years, or even those who are touched by this story after hearing it for the first time.
Thank you so much for opening your hearts to allow Kim and Kevin to experience the beauty of pregnancy and child birth.
