Against All Odds | Freya | Bonham Newborn Lifestyle

After years and years of being told babies were an unlikely future for this little family, finally a little fighter named Freya made her grand appearance.

1 in 6 women face infertility...

While this may seem like a small number, that is about 7.4 million women who will be told, I'm sorry it just doesn't look like it's going to happen.

That wasn't good enough for the McRorie Family to give up hope.

After 3 years of trying, a miscarriage, fertility treatment and a marriage on the brink of divorce, after facing all odds and surviving what most marriages cannot. The little pregnancy test finally said PREGNANT!

Fast forward a few months and I get this call from Selena saying

"Hey, don't rush or panic or anything, but... I'm on my way to the hospital to be induced"

"Don't rush or panic or anything" yeah right!!

"Calmly" I jump in the shower, grab my camera bag and overnight bag, and begin the 4 hour trip to the hospital.

I get to the hospital roughly an hour before midnight and surprise! Just kidding.. no baby yet!

We stayed up all night laughing and joking about experiences from the past and how excited we all are.

Around 7 the next morning her doctor comes in and tries to progress her labor by breaking her water, this is where the real fun begins.

Finally at 11:01 A.M. we heard the sweetest little baby cry, and we all started crying right along with her! It was definitely a learning experience trying to figure out how the heck to focus when your eyes are flooded with tears!

This was definitely a day I will never be able to forget, with all of the emotions and love shared it will forever be a special day.
