I have been witness to a beautiful miracle. I know a woman, named Jessica, who has been married for over twenty years. She and her husband married when she was in her late twenties. Knowing that they wanted children, and the risks that come with having children in your thirties, they began trying to conceive shortly after saying “I Do.” Year after year passed with no success. To doctors, she was a medical mystery, or better yet, another case of unexplained infertility. Women that fall under this category cannot get an answer to their question of why they cannot get pregnant. Medically, there is no reason they shouldn’t be able to, they just don’t.
Jessica, in her mid-forties in now pregnant with a little girl. On the day she found out, her youngest nephew began college. Her family has not had a baby in eighteen years. As you can imagine, she is over the moon. She is delighted and full of joy for her little miracle. Her doctor told her that there is no medical reason that she should become pregnant now, when she couldn’t before. Her response?
“I know. It’s God’s miracle to me.”
I write this as encouragement to all you women out there who are trying to conceive and haven’t had success. I know it is so hard to deal with seeing your friends get pregnant, your siblings. It is so heartbreaking. This woman lived with the heartbreak, and managed to come out without being resentful or bitter, and now her story is a testimony to us all.
