I felt led to share my story. My husband and I have been married for 3 1/2 years. We started TTC in april of 2006. We tried and tried, month after month no baby. Since we have such strong faith in what God's word says, we prayed that when we do get pregnant we wanted twins and we wanted a boy and a girl. We picked there names last November 2006. Collin and Cailyn. At this time I'm not pregnant. We kept beleiving God's word where he tells us to ask anything in his name and it will be done as long you believe. Anyway fast foward to March of 2007. I miss my period and I'm nervous but don't want to get too excited because I had 2 periods in February. So I finally go get a pregnancy test one Friday afternoon and I'm at work. I take it and it has a very faint line on it, I'm pregnant! FINALLY! We go to my OB and he confirms that we're pregnant but he wants to check my hcg levels to make sure it's a viable pregnancy and it is. We have an ultrasound done and what do you know 2 sacs are on the monitor. I did not see it at first, but my husband saw it and the US tech was like "boy you guys know how to do it and get the job done". I said to my husband God showed up and showed out. He answered our prayer. We lost Collin and Cailyn on Aug 8th and 9th. The little time they were here brought so much joy. And we thank God that he answered our prayers. People ask us all the time how can we be so strong and confident during this time. And we tell them it's by God's grace and mercy. We know that he would never put more on us than what we could bear. Even though it hurts to high heaven that Collin and Cailyn are not here with us, we are assured that they are in heaven and that God is still on our side. I shared that story so that others won't give up hope and beleive in the power of prayer. Prayer changes things.
