Tammy’s Letter

NaPro_BabyThe letter below was addressed to Fr. Gabriel Gillen, O.P., Executive Producer of “NaPro: A Quiet Revolution.”

Hi Father Gabriel,

Thank you for producing NaPro: A Quiet Revolution! I couldn’t help but tear up as I watched the film and heard the doctors tell–in many ways–my story. Words that come to mind: powerful, hopeful, and insightful. As the ending credits rolled, another unexpected emotion welled up inside of me.

NaPro: A Quiet Revolution

NaPro: A Quiet Revolution

Let me explain. In February 2011, we conceived our first child. Shortly after, we miscarried him. In November 2011, we conceived again and lost that baby too. We were told both times that it was bad luck and that no tests could be run until we miscarried three times in a row. Then we stumbled on Creighton and NaPro. It took two years and two surgeries before they found and corrected eight things that were wrong with me. Only since our son Zachary was born have I been able to be okay with this journey. The entire pregnancy, I was worried about losing him too. Most of the last four years I have been very angry with God. But watching your film today I was overcome with a feeling of gratefulness for this journey.

Thank you and God bless,
