Emery and Chase meet Addison Road!

Today Addison Road was at our church, The Ark, and we got to meet them up close and personal. They are all so kind and very sweet. Jenny was awesome! They did a great job leading our praise and worship and it was definitely one-of-a-kind day!!!

**I don't know how many of you know our story, so here is a quick run down. We went through a lot to get Emery (and Chase for that matter). Most of you know that and if you don't, you can read through our blog to see the whole story. Basically the short of it is IVF #1 gave us Chase, we assumed IVF #2 would give us miracle #2. Instead, IVF #2 gave us a BFN, IVF #3 gave us a chemical pregnancy, and IVF #4 gave us twins that we lost at 6 weeks, 6 days. IVF #4 was finally our jackpot and we got our Princess to go w/our Prince. During this journey there were so many times I thought I couldn't take one more step, I just wanted to collapse and give up. It hurt so much, I didn't know how much more I could take. Many times, too many to count, I would play the song "Hope Now," the one you hear when my blog songs load. It got me through it all, it gave me hope, it gave me faith, it reminded me that God was w/me and it would all be O.K. How true it was. Addison Road sings this song and to meet them was one of the most awesome moments for me. We got Emery's middle name, Faith, from this song which makes it even more special. Also we got the CD signed and as Jenny put it, "What a wonderful journey of faith God has put you on" - Amen, Jenny, Amen!!

Here are some pics from our morning!

That is SOOO Awesome!! I love Addison Road too and their songs got me through our struggles too. I'm so glad you got to meet them after Emery was born - I'm sure that was so emotional for you.
