I can remember sitting in church on Mother’s Day in 2011. Mothers were being celebrated for all that they do and I sat with my head hanging and tears falling because I so desperately wanted to be a Mom and yet I still wasn’t. My husband and I prayed and prayed for a child and, honestly, I was losing faith.
Today is a day of celebrating mothers yet I am so certain that there are many of you who sit today with tears streaming down your face because your womb is empty… and today is just another reminder of it.
…I know you’re hurting…
I remember that pain so well. I so wish I could give each and every one of you a hug. My heart bleeds for you.
I am so incredibly thankful that a doctor was able to figure out what was going on with me. A week after I was diagnosed, I had surgery. And we had our Genesis Faith on March 3, 2012. (Genesis’ name holds great meaning to us. She was our beginning and we had Faith that we would be blessed with a child.) And on October 29, 2014 we were blessed again with our Olivia Grace.
…But… for so many of you, your stories of infertility are not as short-lived as mine. Please know that today you are not forgotten. I am thinking of you and praying for you…
…praying for your miracle baby…
“Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires.” Psalm 37:4
