Not many people will know that we struggled to conceive for a long time. It was already a very emotional road for us as a couple.  Countless scans and tests, appointments with specialist doctors. Years have passed and we started to lose all our hope that we will ever become parents. Then a miracle happened. After years of trying we are being rewarded with not just one baby, but two!
