  • After three years of pain and tears, Lauren and Garyt Walker joyfully announced that they were pregnant with twins by posting a picture of two jumpers laying in the middle of a large pile of needles.

  • Their journey included 953 days of praying, 452 needles, thousands of tears, one corrective surgery, four clomid/letrozole attempts, two IVF rounds, three failed transfers, and one AMAZING God.

  • The IVF rounds were the most difficult. After Lauren lost five embryos, she asked God why her. What more did He wanted from her?

  • "My faith was tested every. single. time,"Lauren said. "My heart told me to keep going. Not to give up or give in."

  • In the end she was rewarded. Her pregnancy was a gift, but Lauren said that's not the only gift she was given. Her strengthened faith in God was a huge reward for her.

  • "I carry battle scars on my heart that will always remind me of what it took to receive these two precious blessings. And I would do this 2,000 times over and over, again and again," Lauren said.

  • Taking their announcement picture brought back years of pain for Lauren, but she said, " After a good cry, the more I looked at it, the more the needles started to blur together. Now all I see are these tiny onesies that so perfectly sum up our journey: Worth the wait. And wait, and wait, and wait."

  • Lauren and Garyt are looking forward to holding their children in August 2017.
