Jensen Duehl’s Story
Am I dreaming? It’s not possible this is real. Sometimes I find myself staring at him and I just can’t help but pinch myself to make sure this isn’t some unbelievably amazing dream. He’s finally here! Perfect and wonderful and so happy in my arms.
He truly is our little miracle.
I grew up thinking that I couldn’t have children. Being a diabetic had thrown me a lot of curve balls in my life. Then right after my husband and I met a doctor told me that there was no reason I couldn’t have children. I was perfectly healthy so nothing to worry about. I was over the moon! 2 years later, still no baby. It was a roller coaster. Thinking you can’t have kids then someone tells you you can, then suddenly you can’t again. It was the most emotional journey of my life. And my poor husband, he didn’t have a lifetime to wrap his head around the fact that he might not be a dad. But there it was staring us in the face.
Then we met Dr. Pinto. From the moment that I met him, I liked him. When I showed up at his office for my first test he was wonderful. He made me feel at ease and had me laughing the whole time. I just knew I could trust him. When we finally got to the point that we knew IVF was the only option we went to that next appointment scared and apprehensive. We had no idea what to expect really. More disappointment? Not at all. Dr. Pinto was so amazing and honest, we just knew that this was going to work. Not to mention his staff (who made everything about my weekly trips to the office special and memorable). We agreed that day to do whatever we had to do to make our dream of being parents come true.
Now we have the most amazingly happy, perfect baby boy. Jensen has been without a doubt the greatest gift that we could’ve ever hoped for. And we have Dr. Pinto and his unbelievably amazing staff to thank for it.
