I’ve been a member of your group for a couple of years now. I joined after finding your website when I FINALLY got pregnant with my son after a miscarriage and then three years of trying to conceive. I was told after a year of fertility drugs, then drugs coupled with intrauterine insemination, laproscopic surgery that revealed endometriosis, and a HSG, that they only way I would possibly conceive would be through IVF. My husband and I are devout Christians and thought we had given our fertility issues to the Lord when we first conceived and miscarried… but we realized that we had been putting our faith in man all those years by taking the drugs, and moving forward with procedures. I had finally gotten to a point where I would have tried anything, including acupuncture, but praise the Lord for some very Godly friends. They suggested that instead of being poked with needles, I have my husband lay hands on me and pray for my physical health and for the conception of a baby. I’m here to testify that 2 weeks after my husband prayed for my body, my ovaries, my uterine lining, my egg, after praying for a baby boy to be born before the next summer , we conceived!! I found out just a couple weeks afterwards and began praying the scripture from Exodus 23:25-26 [You shall serve Yahweh your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from your midst. No one will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will fulfill the number of your days.] in order to believe that I would not miscarry again nor would I deliver prematurely, etc. The pregnancy was exceedingly successful!! We delivered a beautiful, healthy baby boy on April 9 (before that next summer!). I had a totally natural delivery, and he weighed 7lbs, 5oz. We named him Samuel, just as Hannah did.
Samuel is now almost 22 months old and a joy to all who know him. We fully believe the following verse fits Samuel: “He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, for he will be great in the sight of the Lord,” Luke 1:14-15 We know our God is good and gracious. He truly wants our hearts to be satisified. He places the desires in our hearts (our preacher once said “de” means “of” and “sire” means “the father”) and will fulfill that desire in His timing. The only thing that can make our testimony better is to let you know that my husband and I found out this past August that we are pregnant again! It was a total surprise!! I didn’t think I could have a baby without praying it here!! We found out in November that this is a precious baby girl. We are so excited to welcome her to our family!
Baby Eliana Celeste M was born 2nd May. 7lbs 10oz, 21 inches long.
