Brittany King’s heart was full the  moment the nurse asked, “Are you adoptive mama?”

With tears running uncontrollably down her cheeks, Brittany replied, “Yes!”

Brittany cried as she walked across the room to meet her adoptive baby, Wyatt.

“There he was. My baby,” Brittany wrote for Love What Matters. “He was perfect.”

This was the moment Brittany had been waiting for after struggling with infertility for the past seven years.

Back in November 2013, Brittany was finally pregnant with “little miracle Boston” after trying Femara to induce ovulation.

Sadly, Brittany and her husband, Tyler, were shattered when they learned Boston had ceased to grow during a week-12 ultrasound scan.

Just when Brittany carried on with life, and during a period in which she did not seek any treatment, a miracle occurred.

In April 2015, Brittany was again pregnant!

However, during a week-20 ultrasound scan, the radiology technician and doctor detected something amiss with her unborn baby, already named Max Carter King.

“The doctor explained then that our baby boy had fluid on his brain and little to no cerebral development could be seen. His foot was clubbed and his heart tilted,” Brittany shared.

At 34 weeks’ gestation on Nov. 17, 2015, Max was born via C-section at the University of Utah Hospital.

“Every day we had with Max was a blessing, but our days with him were few,” Brittany wrote.

Tragically, Max succumbed to an infection that developed due to the shunt inserted to help relieve the fluid in his head.

Dolefully, in the early hours of Dec. 23, 2015, Brittany and Tyler bade their last goodbye to Max after spending just five weeks with him.

“The nurses removed Max’s breathing tube.” Soon, his breaths became labored, and Tyler caressed his cheek.

“He beat all the odds and breathed for us while we held him close,” Brittany wrote.

As Brittany held Max in her arms, and Tyler wrapped his arms around them, the “remarkable miracle” Max, who “brought a light to our lives,” flashed them a smile one final time before he took his last breath.

“He was and continues to be the most beautiful gift in our lives,” Brittany wrote. “He is our guardian angel.”

In the years that followed, Brittany went through two failed pregnancies—the lives of Todd and Faith ended before the first trimester.

“Through genetic testing we discovered I carried a balanced translocation of chromosomes #5 and #18. This was the cause of our sweet little babies dying between 9-10 weeks,” Brittany explained.

“So, at that point we decided to stop trying to conceive and begin looking into adoption.”

Just when Brittany was feeling hopeless, she received a call from a family friend on Mother’s Day 2018. Her friend said she had a niece who was planning to give up her unborn baby for adoption.

Around 10 minutes later, the young mother came to Brittany’s home.

“We held each other tight. Her small bump pressed against my stomach. I fought back tears,” Brittany wrote. “It was like I was reunited with a long-lost best friend, no, a sister.”

On July 8, 2018, the couple received the good news that the young mother had chosen them.

“We leapt into each other’s arms, crying and laughing. We dropped to our knees to thank the Lord,” Brittany recalled.

On Sept. 6, 2018, Brittany and her mother-in-law watched the young mother deliver Wyatt Kincaid King into the world.

“To say it was remarkable, is an understatement.”

“He was kicking and crying and I could hardly believe this wasn’t a dream,” Brittany shared.

As Brittany reached out to hold Wyatt, his birth mom whispered: “Mom, I picked him just for you. He’ll heal what’s left broken in your heart.”

Two days later, Brittany and Tyler brought Wyatt home.

On their way home, the couple stopped by Max’s grave.

Brittany held Wyatt in her arms as they visited Max’s tombstone, and it was a “moment of pure joy.”

“We are blessed to know both what it feels like to hold a biological child and an adopted child,” Brittany wrote. “Each son is our own. Each one has our hearts entirely.”

After experiencing so much grief—three failed pregnancies and losing Max—through their seven-year struggle with infertility, Brittany and Tyler ultimately tasted joy.

“Miracles don’t always come the way or when we expect, and some miracles just take a little time,” Brittany wrote.

A baby is a blessing and a gift from heaven above.

It was after seven long years of “hoping and dreaming” that the couple could finally become parents.

Our warmest congratulations to the beautiful King family. We can’t wait to see how God blesses Brittany and Tyler with little Wyatt!
