Allison and Patrick
This is my husband Patrick and I with our two dogs, Pam and Dave. After struggling to conceive for the past 4 years we were elated to find out that our final embryo implanted, and we would become parents in October 2019. Sadly, this angel was not meant for earth and we miscarried at 10 weeks.
This process is filled with ups and downs that bring the most extreme of emotions. We are thankful to always find strength in each other and fortunate to have supportive friends and family that help us along the way.
