Trials and Even greater blessings

I get asked almost every day if we are trying to have another baby! The answer is Yes we are. It just doesn't happen as easy for us as others. We have been trying since we lost Tate . It took the doctor a good 6 months to figure out that I'm just not ovulating. But once he figured that out I have been able to take a medication. The first one he gave me didn't work the first month. So he changed the medication and upped the dosage. And it has worked the past two months. But just because I ovulate doesn't mean I'll get pregnant. Every month there is only a 20% chance of getting pregnant for any healthy woman. So that is the update on that! It has been a huge trial for us! And I hope and pray every day that Heavenly Father will bless us with a healthy baby!

We are so extremely blessed though! In January we got the calling to work as missionaries in the Hurricane Spanish Branch. We absolutely love our calling! Wes translates in sacrament meeting for all of us who don't speak Spanish! And we both teach the three year old Sunbeams in primary! The whole branch has reached out to us and we have grown so much in this calling! We are so blessed to get to know each and every one of the amazing people in the branch. I am so happy that we will be able to be there for two years!

Tate's Memorial Services

Some of you may not know, but we were given the chance to bury our little boy Tate. We had his services at the Hurricane Cemetery on June 17, 2011. I've been meaning to post the pictures from it, but i just have had a hard time looking at them. I really appreciate my friend Kara Thomas Cox for taking them! We couldn't have made it all work out without her, and we definitely owe a special thanks to Wes's grandma Stratton who offered us a spot on her husbands plot. Tate is also buried right next to Wes' siblings Lucas and Cassandra who also passed in infancy. We tried to keep it small and just invite our immediate family. We are so grateful for all of the support from our family and close friends.

My Dad and Wes's dad were able to give a few words that were so comforting to us!
