He is five today. Where did these last five years go? It’s so bittersweet watching your children grow up. You want them to stay little and chubby and cuddly forever but it’s also so much fun seeing them turn into little people! Isaiah, you are funny and smart and such a caring little boy! You already have so much love for God and for all those around you. The day I became your mother was the day my life changed forever. You are five today but you will always be my baby boy...no matter how old you get. Thank you for being you. ❤️
A year ago, Carrie made headlines when she first opened up about her multiple miscarriages. Today she still stands by her decision to talk about something so personal because so many women have since been sharing their stories with her, she revealed:
"It felt like a] weight [had been] lifted off my shoulders. Its not a dirty secret. It's something many women go through."
According to PEOPLE, Carrie leaned on her Christian faith to try to give her strength and perspective on the emotional toll the miscarriages were taking on her.
The unanswered questions about what was causing her to struggle to carry her babies to full term had her wondering if she was to blame, or if she had been doing something wrong that was affecting her physically.
She admitted to feeling guilty for wanting to complain to God about what she was going through because she knew she had a great life with her husband Mike Fisher and eldest son Isaiah, she recalled:
"But the miscarriages made me get real with God and say, 'Okay, I'm kind of giving up a little bit. If this isn't meant to happen, then I need to accept that and know that someday I’ll understand why."
It is reported, when it comes to her diet, she loves counting calories. With the help of her trainer and nutritionist, she has found the perfect ratio of calories that works for her.
