In June we had our orientation at Genesis Fertility Clinic in Vancouver where they would over see the IVF process. The next few months were filled with appointments back and forth to Genesis. On August 10th we drove to Genesis for embryo transfer. The only thing I remember thinking was something my cousin told me she held to through out her IVF experience, "If God's will is for me to conceive, we have a 100% chance of this working, but if it's not His time, we have a 0% chance of this working". I felt such at peace knowing He was in control, that He had a plan for us, a plan to prosper us and not to harm us, a plan to give us a hope and a future! Yes, I really wanted the outcome to be a healthy pregnancy but I knew that if I wasn't pregnant it wouldn't change God's plan or His will for us.
It would be two LONG weeks before we would know whether or not I was pregnant. Praise God, He knew what Chris & I needed during those two weeks of waiting! My brother and sister (Joel and Annie) came for almost that whole time, it sure did help having them with us to keep us busy and our minds off of dwelling on it all day long. The day before Joel and Annie left to go back home we found out we were expecting! Here are a couple pics just after I'd gotten the phone call that I was pregnant!

Here are a few pics of the AMAZING team of doctors and nurses at Genesis that took such wonderful care of us during the whole process! We feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to know them and count them a part of God's plan to bless us with this miraculous little life!
