The View’s co-host Sherri Shepherd shares in an interview with Entertainment Tonight her struggles to conceive her first born child. Sherri talks of her difficulties in trying to conceive naturally:

“It was hard because you go through guilt that something is wrong with you, or maybe you waited too long,” she says. “It was a lot of shots, a lot of false pregnancies, and a lot of tears.”

After many false pregnancies and tears,  Sherri and then husband Jeff Tarpley were able to conceive twins with the help of fertility treatments. The happiness didn’t last for long. Just a few weeks later, Sherri miscarried one of the twins, a baby girl. Just when she thought it couldn’t get worse, Sherri went into early labor and delivered her other twin, a son by the name of Jeffrey:

“He was very premature, born with severe brain bleeding on both sides,” she says. “He also had a hole in an artery near his heart and in his intestine. He weighed one pound, ten ounces and the doctors predicted that he would have severe cerebral palsy. We thought we were going to lose him.”

Through  all the heart monitors, Intensive Care Unit trips, and oxygen tanks,S herri was able to find happiness again:

“There was one point where I thought I would never get on stage and make people laugh again. I thought I would never smile again.”

Today Jeffrey is a happy and healthy boy. “He has no cerebral palsy, his brain functions, but he’s just slower in learning. He’s our little miracle, except when he’s having a tantrum, then the miracle flies out the window!”

  1. Do you have a spam issue on this blog; I also am a blogger,
    and I was curious about your situation; we have created some nice procedures and
    we are looking to exchange strategies with other folks, please shoot me an email if interested.

  2. The thread used is also sourced from reputable stores, which ensures that they are in line with the industry standard.
    Two stores into your search you find the exact same knife
    available in-store at your local Wal-Mart for
    $12. It is touching the static electricity light and sparks outside such as flour
    powder, coal powder and chemical substances.

  3. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you
    presented it. Too cool!

  4. The true filmaholic hears a song from the soundtrack
    and knows exactly where it comes in during the film.

    He, along with the other townspeople, watches the beautiful theater being demolished.
    Hence, the people are well educated and highly concerned about the development of the region and keenly look forward to
    make their lives always easy.

  5. Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Many thanks, However I am encountering
    difficulties with your RSS. I don’t understand why I am unable tto join it.
    Is there anyone else having identical RSS
    issues? Anybody who knows the solution will you kindly
    respond? Thanx!!

  6. I’m not sure where you are getting your info, but great topic.

    I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more.
    Thanks for magnificent info I was looking for this information for my mission.

  7. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve visited this web site before but after going through many of the posts I realized it’s new to me.
    Regardless, I’m definitely pleased I discovered it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back

  8. Heya just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let
    you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the
    same outcome.

  9. I think what you posted made a lot of sense.
    But, think about this, what if you were to write a awesome headline?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however what
    if you added a title that makes people want more?

    I mean SHERRI SHEPHERD LOSES A BABY GIRL BUT GAINS A BABY BOY – Black Celebrity Kids is kinda vanilla.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news headlines to get people to click.

    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get
    readers excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it
    could bring your blog a little livelier.

  10. Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Thanks, However I am going

  12. Hi there! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website such as yours require a
    lot of work? I am completely new to running a blog however I do write
    in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start
    a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and
    views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!
