But, five and a half months into the pregnancy, tragedy struck—Sara went into premature labor and delivered stillborn twins. "To leave the maternity ward with death certificates instead of your infants, it was just devastating," Sara says. "To this day, it's hard to almost breathe when I'm talking about it."
Even after losing their twins, Sara and Bill refused to give up on having a child. Eight months later, they tried IVF again, but it ended in more heartache—another miscarriage. Sara had been struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder since her first miscarriage, and she says this was almost too much to bear.
