We’ve had some big adventures as a couple in our 5 years of marriage- we’ve lived in 3 states, moved 5 times, bought a house, sold a house, and had multiple career changes. In the midst of it all, the past 3.5 years have been spent trying to start a family, and the past 2.5 years have been spent under the care of various doctors and specialists, all in hopes of those two magic lines on a pregnancy test.
After months of silently stalking infertility blogs and accounts on Instagram, I wanted to start a way of giving back to the infertility community by sharing bits of my story and encouragement for other infertility warriors out there.
I never intended to share my story until there was a pretty little bow on top of my testimony in the form of a formal pregnancy (or even birth) announcement. And yet, I find myself compelled to talk about my journey, my faith, and what God has done in the process. I don’t understand why some miracles seem to take so long, but I know there is a purpose to each day that I face. Maybe the testimony isn’t how the journey ends, but in the journey itself.
I want to contribute to the trying-to-conceive community and create a safe place for us all as we walk through the process of growing our family and face the challenges that often come with that journey. I am a woman of sincere faith and hope. I believe there are blessings on the other side of your battle- and I believe there are blessings for you to encounter TODAY, no matter what you are facing. You are so loved and You are not alone.
