Sometimes in life, miracles happen. I have witnessed many including my own and I am lucky enough to get to see so many different miracles regularly in my job. Recently I had beautiful little newborn baby Amelia in my studio. She rocked her session and we captured lots of beautiful memories for her family including some special requests from Daddy who is a big baseball fan!
Here are some words from sweet Amelia’s mummy telling us the story of their little miracle baby.
“In July 2014 Adam and I were looking into fertility treatment to have children as Adam had a vasectomy before we met. We went to all the appointments and had saved up the money for our first round of IVF. Everything was ready to go but we decided to look into a Vasectomy Reversal instead. We found a Dr on the Gold Coast who participated in Gap cover, drastically reducing the costs of the operation. We met with him in October and had Adam booked in a couple of weeks later. The doctor told us we had about a 50% chance the operation would be a success and we would know within 12 months. He said not to expect anything for the first 3 months, however if the operation was successful it would likely happen between 3 and 12 months.
7 weeks after the operation I was leaving work on a Friday and heading home. I found myself in a chemist purchasing pregnancy tests to use in the next few months when we started trying. Sunday morning came and I thought I would give one of the tests a go.
Next minute the two pink lines came up telling me i was pregnant.
I couldn’t believe what I was seeing as I didn’t think it was possible so soon… Adam had only just had the operation and we were told at least 3 months, but more likely 6. I told Adam and off we went to the Dr to get the blood test. Neither of us thought it could be possible so didn’t want to get our hopes up…I was even googling the success rate of that brand of pregnancy test haha. Monday afternoon at the Dr confirmed that I was indeed 4 weeks pregnant with our little miracle baby girl!
