10 Jan God Healed My Heart and Blessed Me with a Baby
My husband I got married in 2015. We decided to wait to try to have kids until the spring of 2017 in hopes that we’d have children close in age to my sister’s children. After a year of trying with no success, we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. I was in such a dark place after being given that news and seeing month after month of negative tests.
We continued to try naturally for a while. I was put on some medications to no avail. I sank into a despondent, angry, depressed version of myself. At that time, I found Moms in the Making and everything started to change for me. I joined a virtual group, I started listening to Caroline’s podcast, later attended my first conference in the fall and began leading my own local group in January of 2020 after God did an incredible work to heal my heart. I was finally seeking God more than I was seeking a baby and my heart has never been the same!
After 4 years of trying to grow our family naturally, we felt peace about pursuing medical intervention. We went through 3 failed IUIs before moving to IVF in the fall of 2021. We transferred our first precious baby in November, but were heartbroken when we didn’t get to take that baby home.
In faith, I spent that holiday season in God’s word and in worship, reminding my heart that God was still good and that He is the God of miracles who always keeps His promises. In January of 2022, we were ready to transfer again. We were elated to find out at the end of that month that we were pregnant!
God sustained the precious life of our baby through a healthy 38 week pregnancy and we welcomed our miracle girl in September of 2022. We named our daughter Liana, which means, “my God has answered” in Hebrew. Her middle name, Esther, was chosen to represent that the timing of her birth was chosen by God to have an impact on His kingdom. So after 5 years, we have our miracle baby in our arms on this side of heaven. And for that I am eternally grateful. Never give up hope, because we serve the God of the impossible!
