Mom Who Struggled With Infertility For Years Shares Her Roller Coaster Story

Divine forces operate in enigmatic ways, urging us to maintain our faith steadfastly, even amidst the most formidable challenges.

Desiree and Ryan Fortin had always dreamed of becoming parents. Thus, after exchanging vows, their natural inclination was to start a family. Regrettably, this endeavor proved to be far more challenging than they had anticipated.

Desiree was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries, hypothyroid, and low progesterone, and no matter how hard they tried, the results were always disappointing.

In a heartfelt Facebook post detailing her challenges, Desiree shared, "It wasn't merely the inability to conceive. Infertility brought forth more tears than I ever imagined possible... I found myself on the bathroom floor, overwhelmed by emptiness, confronted by the recurring disappointment of negative pregnancy tests. Enduring shots, bruises, and a barrage of medications became routine because when you're battling infertility and turn to fertility treatments, that's the harsh reality. It's a costly and draining journey, taxing physically, emotionally, and mentally."

After exhausting other options, they opted for medical intervention, and Desiree underwent an IVF procedure. Their prayers were answered at last. The treatment yielded success, and Desiree found herself pregnant. What came as an even greater blessing was the news of not just one, but three babies. It surpassed all their expectations, and in that moment, their lives felt whole and fulfilled.

The pregnancy posed significant challenges. Given Desiree's petite stature, doctors expressed concerns that she might struggle to carry her triplets to term. Yet, she defied their expectations. At 34 weeks and one day, she underwent a C-section, proving the medical professionals wrong.

In the summer of 2015, babies Sawyer, Jack, and Charlize saw the light of the day. They weighted 5 pounds each.

Desiree wasn't able to meet her bundle of joys immediately due to needing an additional surgery, but Ryan ensured they FaceTimed every day to stay connected.

”I’ll never forget my delivery day. Like all things involving parenthood, there were unexpected turns. After the triplets were delivered, Ryan went with them to the neonatal intensive care unit and I was sent to recovery‚” Desiree told Today.

”We are blessed, but parenting is also a hard job filled with the greatest of responsibilities — caring for tiny humans. Our babies have severe reflux and colic — times three. Getting into a routine is difficult, as is maintaining your relationship amid crying babies, sleepless nights and a new routine,” she said.

Today, their children have grown up and eagerly anticipate welcoming new siblings into their lives. Indeed, Desiree and Ryan are preparing to embark on parenthood once more, showcasing yet another testament to the importance of perseverance in life.
