Hope in the Waiting Book-Coming Soon

Those of you who know my story, know that we battled infertility for almost 4 years. We went through one failed IVF and then 3 months later discovered we were pregnant. The doctors told us it couldn't happen naturally, but God had other plans. My pregnancy went great until 21 weeks, when I found out the baby had died. I delivered our precious daughter Zoe Renae stillborn (due to cord death) on Oct. 8, 2004. Thankfully, the Lord blessed us with 2 more daughters, Brooklyn (4) and Sydney (2 1/2.) Through this difficult time in my life the Lord led me to write a book about my journey and the journey of other women who have overcome infertility to become mothers. I am honored that these women would entrust me with their story and can't wait for you to read about them. If you've happened upon my blog from Kelly's Korner, I am glad you stopped by. I am thrilled her story will be a part of my book. The book will chronicle women who have become mothers through adoption, IVF, embryo adoption and healing. My prayer is that it will provide hope to those that are struggling with infertility.

I will keep you all updated with a release date. Thanks for stopping by.

Found your blog through Kelly's Korner. I am 32 years old and I have been trying to get pregnant for 7 years. Decemeber 4, 2003 I was told that I had a molar pregnancy and had more complications that I could probably write an entire book just on my journey this far. In October 2009, I was given the choice my my gyn/oncologist to have a hysterectomy or chemotherapy (for the 3rd time) and have to wait another year to TTC again. So Nov. 18, I had a hysterectomy and on December 4, 2009 (exactly 6 years later to the day) God healed me. The doctors found a very small canerous tumor on the back of my uterus. This type of cancer does not respond to chemo and is successfully taken care of through surgery. I also got my blood work results back and they were already back to normal. We are now in the process of looking into adoption. When I read Kelly's post, I got really excited and will be looking forward to reading your book. The one thing I have learned through this all~God is faithful. I'm sure you can attest to that. I will be praying about the stories you have chosen to add to your book.

I found your blog thru Kelly's Korner. I am very excited about your book. I have had 2 miscarriages & want more than anything to have a baby. When I was younger, I used to tell people I wanted to be a mommy when I grew up.

I wrote a letter to my baby after the 1st miscarriage: here's a link to it:


I'm not asking to be a part of your book, but I would love to be if you're still looking for people. :)

I found out about your upcoming book from Kelly's Korner, and I look forward to reading it. I have one son (age 2), but I have also had 3 miscarriages. I just (last week) got out of the hospital from a ruptured ectopic pregnancy that most likely left me infertile. My husband and I are still coming to terms with what the future holds for us and what our options may be should we still desire to have another child. Thanks again for sharing your story!

Hip! Hip! Hooray! I was so exited to read that you are writing a book on the ups and downs of infertility. I think this will be such a blessing to those who are struggling with this. This is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. After almost 5 years of surgeries, procedures, shots, and two miscarriages we have been blessed with a beautiful baby girl. The journey was long and hard but I feel that I learned so much along the way. I think the biggest thing that I learned was that I was not in control of planning my life. I remember in high school planning out my future. I planned when I would get married, how many kids I would have, what job I would do, and how much money I would make. I laugh at those now because not one of them worked out. I am a teacher not at physical therapist. I got married at 25 not 23. I have 1 beautiful baby and 2 in heaven at the age of 34 not 4 babies by the age of 30. I am a teacher so I am not making big bucks! LOL! I love my life and I would not change one thing!!! I have realized that God's plan was a much better plan that mine! He knew me and what was best for my life way better that I did! I think that your book will bless many people on the infertility road. I will pray for you, the others writing their stories, your book, and those who will read it. I pray that all will be blessed and comforted by it. A verse that I read daily that helped me get through was Philippians 4:6 - Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
God bless!

I read about your book from Kelly's Korner. I pray that your book will be used in great ways to give Glory to Jesus. He's still in the business of miracles.

I was also infertile and no treatments worked. I had endometriosis (went through many surgeries) and was told I would probably never have a baby of my own. I got pregnant in the summer of 2004 with twins, losing one early on. My Jenna was born in February 2005. Thinking she was a fluke (and a miracle) and knowing we'd be happy with one but God had other plans. I had Ashley in October 2007. :o)

hey girl! i am excited about your book. people truly do not understand how hard infertility is unless you have been through it yourself. you know a little of what we've been through....ten years of waiting and trying, successful ivf but with the loss of his twin, very high risk pregnancy, and preemie baby who was supposed to have problems.... but god blessed us with a beautiful, perfectly healthy boy who melts my heart every time i see him. then to show god's sense of humor, he lets us get pregnant the second time without even trying--just to show he could! i do believe god does things for a reason and on my worst day being a mommy, i stop and look at my two miracles and usually just start crying in amazement. this christmas will be a little hard too, as we had a miscarriage back in march and were expecting our third as our christmas present this year, but we know he or she is with jesus looking down on us. i pray your book touches the hearts of many women and men going through this sad and sometimes lonely journey of infertility! god does have a purpose in infertility. we sometimes just have to wait (and wait and wait!) to find out what it is... love ya, mary ann

You are probably going to get all sorts of these, but...here's another. I'd love to be a part of this. My husband and I struggled with infertility for seven years. We had three miscarriages before our son was born in 2006. Then he was born early and with complications. I'd love to talk more about infertility, doctors, and all the trauma in between!
