Jamie Scott and her husband, Skyler, already had two sons – Shayden, 12, and Landon, 7 – but they desperately wanted to add to their brood. For years they tried to conceive again, but Jamie’s polycystic ovary syndrome made it difficult and, after years of negative pregnancy tests, they struggled to admit that another baby might not be in the cards for them.
“It was really challenging to watch your wife go through that,” Skyler said. “Seeing something that means so much to Jamie and not having success with it and not seeing the results of all our praying, that was really, really hard to go through.”

So, after all these years of trying, it was just incredible to see those two pink lines.”
