46-year-old American actress and activist, Gabrielle Union who experienced several miscarriages and failed IVF’s before welcoming her daughter Kaavia James, opens up on her journey, the fears she and her husband Dwyane Wade had and how they embraced faith and carried on with positivity as their surrogate had 4 months to give birth to their child.
She shared a post on Instagram writing:
On this night we decided to embrace faith that our lil miracle @kaaviajames would make it into our arms. We held onto each other in joy and peace and allowed ourselves to look forward to her arrival. @dwyanewade marked this moment with his 1st ever tattoo of her 1st name Kaavia James… Yes it took alot of whiskey and he and @ud40 & @3jmccollum smoked a few cigars with the @lining.official @wayofwade family and we celebrated. For lots of people/families who have been on their own unique fertility/family creation journey, hope can feel like a cruel joke that plays on repeat. You stop letting yourself get excited and you dont dare utter any updates. You carry it all. It can feel isolating and depressing. You wonder if you are defective. You are not. You wonder if you are worthy. You are. You feel you feel you feeeeeel. You are not alone. You are loved and worthy and every feeling is real and understood. On this night, we allowed ourselves to stop holding our breath out of fear. We still had 4 months to go. We had never been this close. #tbt
