One of the five couples featured on the TLC series Rattled is Ryan and Julia Sadler — who struggled for years with infertility before getting pregnant with their triplets. The religious couple revealed how they turned to modern medicine to help answer their prayers for children in a very personal blog post.
"No baby is born outside of God's will. God doesn't have to readjust his plans for the world when a baby is born via fertility treatment. God is more powerful than fertility medication, and I can tell you from experience that receiving fertility treatment does not ensure a baby is born," Julia wrote. " For as many couples who receive children from medical help, just as many have failed-attempt stories. We are not powerful enough to trick, outsmart, or out-medicate God."
While Ryan and Julia hoped to make it to the 34-week mark before going into labor, the triplets Blake, Blair, and Barrett, were born even earlier after their daughter Blair stopped growing. The siblings arrived on December 6 — each weighing less than four pounds. After spending over two months in the NICU, the parents finally took home all three kids on their nine-year wedding anniversary. "SO. MANY. PRAYERS // SUCH. A. FAITHFUL GOD! Two months ago today we left the hospital empty handed but hearts full after delivering our babies," Julia wrote alongside a photo of the happy occasion. "We were so excited to have Blair, Barrett, and Blake all alive, healthy, on earth, as living examples of God’s goodness and faithfulness."
