It took 4 years, 3 miscarriages and 1,616 shots to make this baby

(CNN)This photo is testament to an undying hope in the face of heartbreak after heartbreak.

Wearing a rainbow swaddle, the 2-week-old is encircled with hundreds of syringes showing her parents' IVF struggles. The heart around her is made of the blood-thinner needles her mom used twice a day. The next ring shows the many IVF injections that her mom took.
After four years of trying, seven attempts, three miscarriages and 1,616 injections, the O'Neills say they are overjoyed to welcome their daughter to their family. London O'Neill was born on August 3.
The photo of London was only meant to be something personal for Patricia and Kimberly O'Neill, a reminder of their fertility journey. After almost 55,000 shares on Facebook, the photo has become a symbol of hope for others struggling with infertility.
    "I hope that there's a couple out there that's going through what we are that can see that there's hope at the end of the tunnel," Patricia O'Neill told CNN. "There's a light and you just have to get there."

    They fell in love and wanted to grow their family

    Patricia and Kimberly met almost six years ago while both were working at a daycare. They fell in love and knew they wanted to have a baby together.
    After a year into their relationship, they started trying to conceive in February 2014. Patricia, now 30, said she didn't want to narrow her window of having a child. During their fertility journey, they married in January 2017.
