Recurrent Miscarriage Story: The rainbow after the storm

April 4, 2017, should have been a great day.

Sure, we might have agreed about adoption if we couldn’t have kids, but that topic was quickly dismissed since we both came from extremely large and fertile families. Surely infertility won’t happen to us? Ha! And here we were. I was completely taken off guard.
