Hi, my name is Lacey and I guess you could say in my life I have endured multiple trials throughout since birth. My parents were having a tough time concieving and were desperately wanting to start a family. So they went on fertility treatments not knowing that they were going to expect not 1 but 4 babies. Yes you read that correctly. Back in the 90s quadruplets were not common so you could say there was some excitement. But during my moms pregnancy she endured some complications and ended up delivering us three and a half months early.
Several times doctors had urged my mom to abort or in their words “selectively reduce” one or more in order to make things easier for her and us in the long run. But my mom wouldn’t have it. She loved us too much. So, due to my early arrival I was under a pound and with the nerve damage had developed a hearing impairment with a whole slew of other problems. I even had a brain bleed that they had said they didn’t know how would effect me in the long run. They said me and my siblings wouldn’t survive 24hrs but four months later, me and one of my brothers were able to go home. Unfortunately, four months later my sister past away due to complications but eventually my other brother came home. Been living a normal life ever since with the exception of one brother being mentally disabled. To keep things interesting, that’s only part 1 of my story.
My life seemed to go on and I began to live a relatively normal life, however when I started high school I began to struggle with depression, and anxiety, on top of that I developed an eating disorder as well. It just seemed never ending. You would think the preterm birth would suffice.
I’m slowly making it through and God is Faithful.
I whole-heartedly believe that if He didn’t have a plan I wouldn’t have survived through any of this.
I have good days, and some bad days but He never fails to pull me through.
