And I’m about to tell you why…..
We have these wonderful friends T & M…good friends of ours and on their own journey of infertility. She and I talk about it often. I remember last June talking to her on the beach and they were hoping to be pregnant around then to have a March baby. Both of their birthdays are in March. She just knew that was going to be the month…but no…not positive. After 8 years of being married and years of trying naturally, she decided to make an appt with an RE for September 4, 2013. She was hopeful and I was comforted that we would be on this journey together…we would be there for each other…and God willing be pregnant in due time….together 😉
Then the unthinkable happened. Her husband passed away…unexpectedly…one of those…unbelievable accidents…..an absolute…”no way”…”Not T” moments. It was beyond devastating for everyone. And especially her. I wrote about it here and here back in Sept.
She never made it to that RE appt….
What would you do? I felt so connected to her that my heart broke…I felt like I could FEEL her pain. I sobbed and sobbed…and seemed like it would never end.
I didn’t know what I would do if I were her?
How could I go on?
I wouldn’t be able to go on….they’ve been together for almost 14 yrs. 14 yrs with your soulmate. And now he’s gone…forever…
How can you move on?
I took her to dinner about two weeks after his passing and it was sad but there was a light in her…a strength that I couldn’t believe. She was much stronger than I could ever be….I gave her a hug and said…”I’m here for you”….she said…”I don’t know how I’m doing this…but I am still alive and I’m trying to live day by day”
She is still alive…this event has made me thank God every day for EVERY DAY I’m alive. Fertility became second to having a wonderful life and an amazing husband. I still have a husband. She does not…it makes me sad every time I even think about that…
But then this happened…
Something so unbelievable that if I didn’t know her…and heard this story…I wouldn’t believe it.
In an email sent to a couple of people…was an ultrasound picture with the words “I can’t wait to see you again in May T”
Confusion at first….and then tears….loads and loads of tears came flooding down my face.
She is pregnant…and due in May….with T’s baby….a healthy baby boy 🙂
A TRUE miracle.
Unbelievable, I know. But this is real.
She got pregnant the day before he passed. It was Labor Day weekend.
She only revealed this to all of us recently. She wanted to make sure she was in the clear and around 20 weeks along…
I wanted to share this with you all because I know…sometimes it seems like there’s no hope. You have done everything. Prayed every day. And you are still waiting on your miracle…well…keep praying…
Because as you see…..
Miracles DO come true….
**A miracle- is an event not ascribable to human power or the laws of nature and consequently attributed to a supernatural, especially divine, agency. Such an event may be attributed to a miracle worker, saint, or religious leader. A miracle is sometimes thought of as a perceptible interruption of the laws of nature. Others suggest that **God may work with the laws of nature to perform what are considered miracles.**
~~~~~~UPDATE: M gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy in May 2014. I know his Daddy is looking down on him from Heaven smiling ear to ear 🙂 I am so very happy for them :)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
