Gina found out she got pregnant again around the time Lucca was 4 months, sadly she suffered a miscarriage; nine or so months later she got pregnant again, but sadly another miscarriage followed.

Two months after her second miscarriage Gina found out she was pregnant again, she was going to give birth to a girl around Christmas; however, a sonogram showed her baby has stopped growing. She wasn’t up to for another pregnancy, this time they decided to try IVF.

We decided we’d try IVF & genetic testing with the embryos.The month we were supposed to start, my heart wasn’t in it. I couldn’t do it.

As much as I felt I couldn’t handle one more loss, I also knew I could. I never lost sight of the little miracle in Lucca that God gave me & I had faith he would do it again. 2 weeks after we were supposed to start IVF, we found out we were pregnant again.


They are having another boy, any minute now!
