Union recently opened up about having already had eight or nine miscarriages as she and Wade try to start a family. She admits it has been challenging but says she is committed to sharing in the joy along with the pain.
"I have had eight or nine miscarriages,” she writes. “For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant -- I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle,” she said.
“Why I share my pain along with my joy, important to connect. No need to suffer in silence or in solitude. Thank u for the support!” she wrote on Twitter.
Union even opened up in her new book about the fact that she and Wade remain so committed in love and faith during this trying time. Although the couple has been struggling for three years to have a child, they keep dreaming of the baby of their dreams.
