One thing I have gained during this journey are closer friendships with unexpected people. I never knew there were so many other mommies out there that had experienced this same dreaded wait for a baby. At church this morning, I had quite the meltdown. But it seems as though every time I have a meltdown, God puts the perfect person in my path to encourage me.
I had a thought today and I wanted to write it down so that I could come back to it if/when the next meltdown happens. I have always just viewed children as a given. They are an automatic end result of unprotected sex, right? Wrong.
Children are a gift, not a given.
- Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, and I am a Christian, saved and sustained daily by my wonderful Savior. I am a wife to my high school sweetheart, Mitch; we got married at 19! I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, an aunt, a co-worker, and a woman that struggles with infertility. God has used this struggle to completely transform my life. I have experienced fear, hope, anxiety, compassion, trust, peace, tears, excitement, pain, laughter, and many other things that come with infertility. But most of all, I have a deeper trust and friendship with my Creator and my husband, and for this, I am forever thankful. The purpose of this blog is for me to remember the ups and downs of this trial, and how my Savior has brought me through it all. For those who have never struggled in this area, I hope this blog will help you see a glimpse into the life of someone struggling with infertility, so that you might better know how to encourage them through these difficult times. I also pray that this blog will help other women struggling in this area to know that you are not alone! There is a river of peace that is found in Christ that can help you through even the darkest of circumstances, I promise!
