22 Feb God Brought Our Miracle Through Adoption After a 12 Year Wait
We tried and prayed for 12 years to start a family. I have PCOS so the doctor put me on 2500 mg of metformin and lots of other medicine (22 pills total a day for 3 years). We also had 6 IUI’s done.
After 3 years I looked at my husband and told him I can’t do it anymore. I had gotten to a point where I couldn’t swallow another pill.
In March 2019, I went to the altar and left everything with God. For the first time I had the biggest peace. Well 13 days later we got a letter from a lady who was 14 weeks along wanting us to adopt her unborn child. We went through the pregnancy with her and the baby was born September 2019. We were at the hospital (I was in the room when she was born) and she came home from the hospital to our house. On March 16,2020 (3:16) the adoption was finalized.
I had a lot of people ask me how I was not stressed throughout my journey and my answer every time was “God’s got this.” About half way through the 12 year journey I did get jealous and angry with God but I realized He was teaching me something and I just had to step back and learn and grow closer to Him. I can honestly say I learned a lot from it and I’m closer to Him because of the wait.
