My journey started 5 years ago when I was blessed with the most amazing husband. We wanted to start a family as soon as possible. Little did we know…after a million (it sure felt like a million) negative pregnancy tests we decided to get tested; we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility.
We went to different fertility clinics and were on different treatments, but still everything we tried turned out negative.
We decided to take a break just to get perspective again–maybe having a baby wasn’t for us. But God promised and while I was reading a book about pregnancy and promises, it hit me like a rock: I was so focused on the promise that I forgot about the God of the promise. God cannot and will not lie…He is God .
In July 2016, I made another appointment at a fertility specialist and we decided that we would try IVF. Our chance to get pregnant was 20% because of my age(38) and so the journey began….this journey got me closer to God than ever before (because I was focused on God and not the promise ), He is the only Creator of life.
On November 3, 2016 we got a positive test (our first IVF attempt), and at our 6 weeks appointment we learned that we were expecting twins…a boy (Ben) and girl (Nia); God gave me a double portion.
~They are now 12 weeks old and beautiful healthy happy babies. It is like the lyrics of the song “Great Are You Lord,” which says, “It’s Your breath in our lungs, so we pour out our praise.”
To God all the glory.
Wow, Nadia what a testimony! Thank you so much for bringing to light how we need to be in touch with our Creator and not only our longing for what the Creator gives us. He fills us with JOY, out of the abundance of love we have for Him. God Bless you and your husband, and your TWO little bundles of JOY! Thanks again for sharing Nadia!
