as someone who has struggled, and is currently struggling, with infertility nothing is more exciting when a friend who has also walked this road becomes pregnant. to know the hurt, the pain, and lonely nights, the empty arms, and the failed pregnancy test month after month and then to watch LIFE be put in their womb makes me so full of joy.
it seems like new life is all around me lately. there are for sure seasons where a lot of friends are adopting, seasons where everyone is having babies, and seasons where everyone is pregnant, and this season seems like everyone is pregnant.
“I do want to mention that if you are a lady reading today who is struggling to become pregnant or waiting on adoption, I am praying for you today. I have met many women through blogging and social media because of my miscarriage and adoption journey who have unfortunately struggled with infertility or are waiting the long wait with adoption. My heart goes out to you today. I’m asking the Lord to open your womb, to hear your cries and prayers, to bring your child home to you, to let you see that positive line, to hear that little heart beat, to receive the call you’ve been chosen, and most importantly to grant you peace and rest until that time comes. We serve a mighty, gracious God.”
When I read her words of encouragement, I literally almost did the ugly cry. I’ve been there and am currently there with infertility. I know the hurt, it’s all too close to me. and I know I’m not alone. and I’m thankful for women like Kate who because she’s been through all of those things too, can be empathetic. After I read this I was texting with her, and she sent me the most beautiful prayer for our family. Honestly, y’all if you think making friends online is weird you just don’t even know 🙂 it’s amazing and I’m so grateful for my online community!
