I am a numbers nerd (Financial Analyst to be exact). My husband is a photographer (ASOG Photography). We were married in 2000 at the young ages of 19 (me) and 23 (Tim), so we decided to wait to have children.
We stopped preventing in 2006 and after a year of no luck on our own, we started seeing a fertility specialist. In July 2008 we got our first positive pregnancy test, but we lost that baby at 8 weeks. Our second positive test came in June 2009, but we lost that baby as well at 5 weeks.
In November 2009 we conceived our miracle baby girl, Jessica May, who was born on her due date – August 8th, 2010.
Alayna Ann Karel was born almost two years later on May 25, 2012, after we had begun seeing our fertility specialist again.
Johnathan David Karel, our surprise ‘free’ baby boy, was born October 25, 2013.
