Share Hope

This week is National Infertility Week

I can't help but think back to all the days I just cried in desperation wondering if I would ever be called "mom". I knew God had not forgotten me but I wondered what His plan was. I begged Him........PLEADED with him daily to please let me be a mother. It was the hardest thing I have ever endured. I used to just there a light at the end of my tunnel?

And now sometimes I think back to myself 2 or 3 years ago and how much pain I felt and I just want to somehow tell that girl "You have no idea what is in store for you." I think that's what God must feel like as he looks at us.

I'm praying for so many of you. I've been keeping a running prayer list for those waiting for a child for the last few years. And I've seen story after story of God answering what seemed to be the MOST hopeless of prayers. I've rejoiced while I've written "Praise" by 171 names.

Just today I was reading a post by a sweet girl, Adrienne, who has suffered TOO many miscarriages and eventually adopted two children and is now pregnant! It's such an awesome story.

I thought maybe it would be neat if any of you who suffered through infertility and now have children - through pregnancy or adoption could leave a quick testimony of hope in the comments.

And if you are waiting.....................wondering if there is ANY HOPE? Maybe these stories will be an encouragement to you today. I pray that they are.

I'll start:
Three years of infertility, one miscarriage, a year of drugs and failed IUI's, told our only option was IVF........decided to just put all my trust in God and He gave me a peace pregnant on our own when I was 35. She is now 15 months old.
