The Truth about Trying Tuesdays: Secondary Infertility

This may be a new term for you. You may not even know you have “it”.

Getting information about this was helpful for me since we had one ... Read More »

While you Wait Wednesdays: Sometimes it’s Just Hard

I know when I was waiting to adopt people would assure me that it would happen soon. Well, they didn’t know that. And what is “soon” to someone who has been waiting for years? They meant well and they just want to be encouraging but maybe sometimes what I wanted to hear was, “Wow, all this waiting must be very ... Read More »

While you Wait Wednesdays: Spouse Check

If you have set some time aside this Wednesday to talk with your spouse take a few moments to walk in their shoes.

While you Wait Wednesdays: Baby Hour

I have posted before about how important I think it is to manage your emotions during this trying time of waiting for a baby. One of the techniques I recommend is to choose one day a week (I recommend Wednesdays) to postpone all your worries, concerns, questions, discussions with your spouse, to one day a week. This gives you the ... Read More »

Miracle Mondays: Why the delay?

“A delay is not a denial from God.” -Rick Warren Sometimes I wish God spoke to us in dreams like he did in Bible times. (Unless, of course, there was bad news predicted!) But how much easier it would be if God told us, as he did to Sarah in Genesis that at this time next year you will give ... Read More »
