Well, I just received official word from the doctor that this cycle failed. As if it wasn't hard enough to take 7 negative pregnancy tests, they also have to confirm with blood work that I'm in fact, not pregnant.
As hard as this is, we're not going to give up. We are going to continue to pray, and seek every means possible to expand our family. I fully believe that God will allow me to experience pregnancy at some point in my life, and that He will also bless us with another adoption down the road. It's actually really amazing me that I have this much hope today. I still have moments of extreme sadness over our situation, but I feel like the best is yet to come for our family.
God has given us so much! And I have no doubt that He will continue to bless us, even through some very hard trials. A sweet friend messaged me first thing this morning that she was praying for us as she listened to My Father Planned It All. So I pull up the song on my phone to listen again, and I just sobbed in the car. It's so comforting that we have a God that comforts us through shade and sunshine, and I am forever thankful for the people that pray for us and love us through these difficult times!
P.S- Times like these make me that much more thankful for or precious children! I am so looking forward to the days ahead where we get to spend our first Christmas with them!! As sad as I am that we won't be announcing a pregnancy this Christmas, I am so excited that our babies have a mommy and daddy this Christmas, and that we have them!!! Best gift I could ask for ❤️
- 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!
