Trusting God’s Plan Through Miscarriages and 7 Years of Infertility
April 30, 2019
Our story includes 5 IUIs, 6 rounds of IVF, a miscarriage of twins, being victims of an adoption scam, and a miscarriage of 1 twin, over a span of 7 years, before my husband and I finally became parents to our miracle baby boy and later on another boy.
In March of 2012 I had a D&C after miscarrying twins. It was the first time in 5 years of ttc that I had gotten a positive pregnancy result. I only got to live with them for 6 short weeks. I was beyond devastated. I was driving to my first day back to work after the procedure, listening to the song, Wonderful World by James Morrison. The song is meant to be about a significant other, but to me, it was about my relationship with God, and my dream of being a mom. I was sobbing. I was down to nothing. I was begging God to hear and answer my prayers. I didn’t know how I could go on.
I had just turned onto a road that I had taken every day for the last 4 years. Not once, had I ever seen a semi truck on that road. This particular morning, when I was begging God to hear me and help me, I came face to face with a semi. On the whole front of the grill was a silhouette of a child kneeling in prayer, with the words “God Still Answers.” Immediately, the tears stopped. I said “OK God, I will continue to trust in you and your plan.”
This was my Mountain Top experience. It is what got me through the worst time of my life. I share this in hopes that if you are struggling with something that is bringing you to your breaking point, you find HOPE. That you have your very own mountain top experience. Trust it will get better, even when you can’t imagine how. Trust in God’s plan for you, and He will bring you through it.
