Of His Miracles

Throughout my pregnancy with my first-born, I often found myself marveling over the fact that my body seemed like a perfectly programmed machine that simply knew what it was meant to do. All these pieces came together and worked and chugged and by the end of it, out would come this perfect little human. And all the while, I had no conscious knowledge of all that was required for the desire outcome. It was all my body. It knew exactly what to do. As soon as an embryo was developed and  ...

He is Still Good

Nearly two weeks ago we learned that the life I had been carrying in my womb had turned to death only a week after we first saw that tiny heart beating.

Connected to this little life that I pray will find a home in my womb. We’re in it together this little one and I – working together for the dream of two parents that  ...

Transfer Day (Part One)

Today is the day of what we have referred to as “The Procedure” or “The Transfer” – in short, they will be injecting the embryo into my uterus this very afternoon. It’s a little bit of a surreal feeling – if all goes well, last night was my last night as a non-pregnant woman for quite awhile. Again, we’ve never put this kind of planning into, well, our family planning, so this is the first time I’ve ever known ahead of time what was  ...
