One year ago I wrote a blog post titled Mother’s Day for the Childless.
I remember feeling so helpless at that point. We had wanted to start our family for a while and things just were not happening. Little did I know I would be staring down at a positive pregnancy test in July of that same year.
The main point I want to get across in this post is- you are not alone. There are people all around the world just like you. I was one of them. Hoping and praying to start a family. Googling why it’s not working. Watching everyone around you get pregnant easily. It’s not easy to be vulnerable and lay all my insecurities out on the table. It’s not easy to admit that a year ago I was really sad and I had lost hope.
Whenever I prayed about whether or not we would have children I would get a resounding yes. At times I didn’t believe that it would ever happen. God has perfect timing. I don’t know the exact reason why our little baby needed to come on March 28, 2018 but I know that it was important. God keeps his promises. He knows the desires of your hearts. Keep hoping, keep praying, keep living and believing.
God “looketh down upon all the children of men; and he knows all the thoughts and intents of the heart; for by his hand were they all created from the beginning.” (Alma 18:32.)
