When my husband and I got married, he had already been divorced and undergone a vasectomy at his ex-wife's request, leaving us to wonder if we could even have children. Eventually, we discovered that the procedure could be reversed. However, getting approval from the VA proved to be a lengthy and challenging process.
After finally receiving approval, we had to travel to Colorado for the surgery. It was a two-year journey of uncertainty and waiting before we could even consider the possibility of pregnancy. After a year of trying, we were thrilled to discover that we were expecting.
However, the pregnancy was complicated, and our son Cyrus was measuring smaller than usual. Further tests revealed that my placenta wasn't developing well, and the blood flow to the baby was being affected. I was diagnosed with preeclampsia, a life-threatening condition.
At 25 weeks and five days, Cyrus was born prematurely and spent 200 days in the NICU before finally coming home. It was a difficult journey, but our faith in God and the prayers of our Legacy Family sustained us. We are grateful for the gift of our son and the goodness of God during that season of life.
