OUR LITTLE MIRACLE

I can’t even believe I’m finally writing this post. It seems so surreal. It’s impossible to find the words to share just exactly how we are feeling. After almost 3 years of struggle, fear, heartbreak upon heartbreak and the lowest points either of us have ever seen, we are finally expecting our little miracle baby.

I can’t even tell you everything we have gone through from the moment we found out we were pregnant to today, but I PROMISE to do a video to update you all. You guys have been such a foundation for us during the most impossible days and I am forever grateful. I am bawling while I write this, because I have never in my life felt so much gratitude. I feared so badly I would never get to experience this and I cannot believe that its finally our turn.  

My fear, in posting this, is that I’ll be hurting someone else with my news. I remember announcement after announcement and just all the feelings I felt rushing inside of me, but never once did I choose to feel jealous. I chose to find hope in their story, in their miracle. Honour me, and do the same because I know just how difficult it is. I know the pain, the nights on the bathroom floor crying uncontrollably, the pain so deep you feel it in your bones. But I want to promise you, that if you too are going through infertility and you are fearing the absolute worst that you have to put your faith elsewhere. I let go, I finally decided to trust the plan that was written for us and everything started falling into place. I never thought this day would happen.

We have taken our time sharing the news with our closest friends and family members, and to enjoy it with each other. Our little miracle baby. I’ve put together the most amazing video of telling most of our friends and family members and I honestly can’t wait to share with you guys. I pretty much die every single time I watch it.  

We had the privilege of working together with Justine Milton Photography and oh my heavens, she blew us away! She captured such special news so perfectly.  We are so so so excited to work with her throughout this pregnancy and once baby is born! Make sure to follow her as well to see all the amazing things she does!

    Your hair!! You are Mother Nature herself. Such a goddess.

  2. I\’m so happy! I\’ve already commented on twitter and instagram but this are the most exciting news ever! I\’m younger than you with no plans of having a baby soon but the way you spoke about wanting a baby on the past made me feel a certain kind of sadness. I\’m glad you\’ve shared it all with us and nothing makes me happier than this happy ending, or shall I say beginning? I can only think about saying \”congratulations\”!! Nobody deserves this more than you! I really can\’t wait for all the baby posts, and for now, best wishes! and don\’t forget to your pregnancy!

    So many congratulations! I started following you when you first started posting about your feriltity journey as I have had some bumps in my journey as well. Difficult as it is, I find it comforting to hear other women\’s stories so that we can support one another and know that we\’re not alone. Each journey as different as the individual but all with the same wish- for a baby. I am so overjoyed for you and thank you for posting this and letting us celebrate right along with you! Here\’s to a happy and healthy 9 months!

  7. Danelle says:

    Wishing you so much joy!! I\’ve been there – it took us a few years for our first little miracle to arrive and I remember well the heartache. I wouldn\’t wish the experience of infertility on my worst enemy & I am thrilled that your prayers have been answered! Like you, once I finally let go, that\’s when our little miracle began. Enjoy every moment of this pregnant and I wish nothing but health and happiness to you and your family.

    Ah I already commented on your Instagram but I am just so happy for you two!! I have been praying for you ever since you posted about your struggles. It made me feel so sad. I am so excited that you\’ve finally gotten your wish and I can\’t wait to follow your journey through pregnancy and momma life! You two are going to make amazing parents! Congratulations!!!! xoxoxo

  13. I am SO happy for you. From the first time I saw your video about your struggle, I sensed something so real in your voice…it was raw and, for me, relatable. I went through the exact same thing and and fast forward to today, after back to back pregnancies, I am the lucky mama of 2 beautiful healthy boys (1 and a half and 6 months!). I wish you only the best and enjoy every minute of your pregnancy. You seem like a beautiful soul, and your pictures are just gorgeous. God bless you and your family and kali eleftheria kai me ena pono🙏🏻💕

  14. Heather says:

I cannot wait for the day I become a mother. We\’ve been trying for two years. God bless you and your growing family! And prayers for the rest of your pregnancy! 💕

  15. Quinn says:

    Congrats to you pretty mama! Ever since you shared your video about your struggle, my heart has hurt so bad for you.

You have touched so many people and I wish nothing but the best for you and your cute little family! Thank you for sharing and being so true to yourself.

    So so happy for you both!! Congratulations!! Sending so much love!

  23. Dana says:

    Thank you for sharing your journey with us. This gives me hope that one day this could be me. I started following you on Instagram, and ever since then you have made my journey a little bit easier everyday. Just when I\’m ready to give up on this process, you post something so beautiful and inspriational. My journey may not be the norm as I have had several surgeries the last 2 years due to cervical cancer and suffering with stage 4 endometriosis, but we are coming closer to transfer date. Your story gives me hope. Inspires me not to give up. So thank you and congratulations. You\’re going to be an amazing mom.

  24. Amy Blaire says:

    I yearn to have my chance to be a mom and although my journey and circumstances are a little different, I have found great comfort in your authenticity in your honesty and sincerity; for myself, and in sharing your story with friends experiencing the same heartache as you!

    I am more than thrilled to hear how richly you have been blessed! You\’re so deserving of this miracle and I know you\’ll cherish it all the more because of what you\’ve endured to get here!

    To be honest, I wouldn\’t be at all surprised to hear there are more than one little blessing tucked in there! A friend had ivf and they told her she was having twins…at the next scan they said, \”Oh wait! There\’re actually three!\”

    What an epic adventure lies before you, Eleni! We all look forward to following along with you x

  25. Awe you guys are so cute, congrats

  32. Eleni and Tim, my eyes are starting to tear up just writing this! Brian and I are so excited for your wonderful news. You are both going to be amazing parents to your little miracle baby! I\’m so excited to follow this next chapter of your life and hope we get to see the THREE of you one day in the future. Lots of love!!! xo

  33. Makeez says:

    I\’m beyond thrilled for you. I think you\’re just such a lovely soul. You\’ve come along way and having followed you briefly, I found you to be poignant and desperately trying to make a difference, if even slightly in doing things with grace and honesty. For that reason, I think we all really gravitated to you. It wasn\’t because you couldn\’t have a baby. It was deeper then that, it was because you were just so genuinely honest and kind hearted. So deep in each of us, we wished you well and hoped you\’d find your joy and someday see these pictures and announcement. And the day finally came. Enjoy each single moment. And I know you already know this, but this ordeal has only strengthened you as woman. It has opened your heart in such a way, that nothing probably could. You are more compassionate and wiser because of it. Say thank you. You are more patient because of it. Say thank you. You will be a better mother because of it. Say thank you.

    I too, know loss. I lost twin girls at 6 months. And although, I have a sweet and vibrant healthy 2 year old boy, not a single day goes by that I don\’t ache for them. But losing them, ripped my heart open and taught me so much about compassion towards others. I still pray that I get them back, but for now…I rejoice in your happiness and I will hold my son tightly and cover him with kisses until they return to me, in this life or the next.

    I\’m so incredibly happy for you! ❤️ You both will be great parents!
    You can\’t imagine how much hope you give me with this story as I\’m going through the same right now. We\’ve just experienced that our first attempt of IVF failed and I was struggling wheter we should try the next attempt right now or wait a little while. All the pain, the pills and injections, the hope, the waiting and in the end you get a message that it didn\’t work. It was tearing me apart. But as I saw your great news I felt relieved for the first time in the last days and this gives me definitely the strength to give it another try. Thank you so much for sharing this!
    With lots of love from Austria! ❤️
