Introduction to Infertility

If you are looking for friendship and camaraderie with someone who has some understanding of the condition of infertility, you have come to the right place. The goal of this blog is not to give you answers to why you are infertile or point you to medical solutions. The goal here is to uphold you and comfort you while you attempt to navigate the reality of what infertility means to you personally and to your family.

The support to be found here will not be advice based on what the world has to offer through psychology, humanism, worldly philosophies, or other secular thinking. The direction of this and future posts will be centered on understanding the support, love, and strength found only in the Word of God and through the grace of God in Jesus Christ. It’s important for me to be totally upfront about this direction. If you are uncomfortable with that, I would encourage you to wait and refrain from blocking the option of considering what is offered here. “So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him” (1 John 4:16 ESV).

Chances are that you may have sought help already through family, friends, self-help books, therapists, counselors, and your church, if you have one. While you may have found well-meaning advice, you may still be looking for answers on how you can move on from a diagnosis that seems to have no answers. You may be asking yourself how you can possibly accept an infertility diagnosis, especially if you have come to the end of the road. You’ve tried everything and now you have to understand how to find peace and joy with a different view of your, possibly, childless future.

Take a chance that you can know that God loves you and has loving answers for you through His Word. There are answers for you whether you are a believer in Him or not. He wants you to come the way you are whether you have a background of strong faith or little or no faith.

You know the statistics that the number of infertile women has climbed to over seven million per year. It probably doesn’t comfort you to know that you are part of those statistics. I know how difficult it is to be numbered in that group. However, I know there is hope in learning how to face that diagnosis with anticipation for peace and joy beyond infertility.

Post your experience and story here. I will answer as many of you as I can and will post a new article weekly to help you move forward with the support you need. In the near future, look for information about my book that is being published, Pathway to Peace and Joy beyond Infertility.
