Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate gratitude, and for Sherresa Henderson last Thanksgiving was an especially grateful season. Just two days after the holiday her and her husband, Joseph, were blessed with their miracle baby boy, Braylen, born on November 27, 2021 weighing 2 pounds and 12 ounces.

Henderson’s journey to motherhood was not without struggle – after suffering unknown infertility for 10 years along with several pregnancy losses over the course of the past three years, her decade-long dream to have a baby finally came true.

She lost two healthy pregnancies in 2020, both at 17 weeks, due to an incompetent cervix. Also referred to as a cervical...

Devorah and Elazar Tendler relocated to Israel in 2019, and were living the dream life. Devorah had recently applied to graduate school while her husband was finishing his rabbinic training. As they got acquainted to their new life in Israel, the couple found out they were expecting their second baby, a daughter due in October 2021.

“We were excited to expand our family,” Devorah said. “Just like my first pregnancy, everything was going well the second time around until my baby’s 20-week anatomy scan. As I watched my baby on the ultrasound screen, my OB-GYN noticed something unusual. He told me it appeared my...

Celebrating a child’s birthday is a very special moment, especially for parents. It signifies another year of life, and each birthday is special in its own way. Last month, when Geoffrey and Rachel Finn’s daughter, Ivy, turned three, it reminded them of how much their daughter has grown and how far she has come.

“We always look forward to Ivy’s birthday on Sept. 14,” Rachel said. “She is our little firecracker. She is spunky, assertive and incredibly loving. She likes to play with her older brother, Bear, and she loves animals, especially farm animals. To celebrate her third birthday, we took her to the farm...

Last October, my husband and I began our journey to become first time parents. Naturally, the first step I took was discontinuing my birth control. I had been on birth control for over 10 years and was lucky to never experience negative side effects such as weight gain or irregular cycles. While on birth control, my cycles were right on time. I assumed discontinuing birth control wouldn’t be an issue, and I would be pregnant within a few months. Boy was I wrong!

At 33 years old, I’ve always had a great relationship with my body and knew it pretty well. I enjoy exercising and staying physically active, and I am fortunate...

Bailey and Kellen Gordon are the parents of 2-year-old twin girls, Willa and Hazel. Only weeks after the twins’ first birthday, the Gordons were thrilled to find out their family would be growing once again.

“Once we shared this exciting news with our family and friends, everyone told us, ‘It’s just one baby this time around, and it will be a lot easier than your twin pregnancy,’ Bailey said. “Well, they jinxed me because this was anything but an easy pregnancy. Early on in my pregnancy, we already had the name picked out. My husband and I had just watched Die Hard starring Bruce Willis and we loved his character’s...
