I Met a Lifelong Friend Through Moms in the Making
August 10, 2021
When I signed up to go to the 2017 Moms in the Making conference I didn’t have anyone close to me in my life who was struggling with fertility issues. I purchased my ticket and planned to go to the conference alone, flying all the way from the Pacific Northwest. I ended up signing up for a roommate on an excel spreadsheet in the Facebook group for conference attendees. Turned out, my roommate was from a neighboring state.
After texting for a little bit, we hit it off. The Lord provided me a new friend, when I needed it, who exactly understood my heart to be a mom. Later the next year her husband got a new job in our neighboring town and they temporarily moved to my basement, eventually purchasing a house just 30 minutes away!
Though our stories are different we continue to support each other and like to meet for walking and talking! Praise God for the way he provided a new friend on the journey and the way He orchestrated our lives to support each other!
