Altogether, the journey has served as a roller-coaster ride. The ride was rougher in the beginning as the husband-wife duo went through quite a turmoil in the process of expanding their family.
As Melissa and Jake had their first son, they predicted that the future pregnancies would go smooth. However, destiny had something else planned out for them who loved the idea of having multiple kids running wildly in the house.
Story To Getting Pregnant Against All Odds
After trying a year for a second child, Melissa and Jake sought the help from a fertility specialist and came to know that it was the relatively common “unexplained infertility” that was stopping them from getting pregnant.
Three years of blood draws, procedures, medications, and shots, and it still did not work.
Eventually, the couple came up with the idea of adoption, and henceforth, they adopted a beautiful baby girl, Barrett Mae.
And then at some point out of nowhere, after a lot of heartache and sadness, Melissa got pregnant. As she gave birth to the miracle baby and named her Colette Ryan, after her brother, she said that it was her angel baby, Barrett who brought yet another baby in the family.
