As a Christian woman, I believed I was made for this challenge, and that I would overcome at the perfect time, and not a moment sooner. While I "patiently" (translation: impatiently but willing) waited on God to answer our years of prayers, I got busy being the hands & feet of Christ. In the 2 years Womb Abloom was open, God used me to help 8 women conceive--each after facing a fertility challenge of her own--and later support their pregnancies. It was so hard you guys, and there were so many times I came away from a pic of a positive pregnancy test or ultrasound image happy as a clam for my client and thanking God for using me as a conduit for His healing, but desperately sad for myself. I certainly had a case of the "why not me's?" A friend once said, "you know, you don't have to do this," and I said, "yes, I believe I do." I stayed faithful even as I turned 40, then 41, and 42... I just knew there HAD TO BE a baby at the end of this ridiculously long rainbow, otherwise not one bit of our journey would make sense. Much to the surprise of many who doubted it would ever happen for us, I became pregnant in the spring of 2021 and welcomed our son Oscar Lucas to the Earth-side of Heaven that winter. Oscar's Creation Story is nothing short of miraculous, I get goosebumps just thinking about how it all went down! I'll have to tell you sometime!
