*sniff sniff*..someone pass the tissues please. As someone who struggles with infertility, this hits home. :/
*sniff sniff* :)

Oh, Dawn... even though I have no known fertility problems, sometimes I feel a bit like I do, because it's two years before we get married and can even start trying.
Even N.P. admitted he shed a tear when he watched this.

I'm balling my eyes out! We lost a child at 8 weeks on January 21st 2007 without even realizing that we were pregant.

We've been blessed with 2 lil ones though and are thinking of trying again now.

Thanks for sharing! Hugs!

Oh Anna, thank you for sharing this. * tears* I have several close friends who have had numerous miscarriages. Walking with them through that journey has been incredibly hard... "Thank you Jesus for precious Savannah and Alisa..." This video makes me feel so honored to be a mother and gave me a bigger vision to share purity with young ladies... thank you Anna.

This video touched me so much too. Thank you for the coment you left on my blog.

This song never fails to bring me to tears. I too have infertility issues and it is so painful to think of the women who willingly gave up the one thing what I would do anything to have.

Rightthinker said...

Thanks for sharing the heartwarming video. :*)

AnneK said...

I had never seen it before, thanks for sharing. Been "trying" for some time now to conceive, so this hits home.

Anna S said...

Ways of Zion,

I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope all your future pregnancies go without complications.

Kyla,

I hope you have healthy, happy children, God willing. It will happen if it is His plan. I keep reminding myself of this all the while when I think about how much I want to be a mother already.

Anna,
Great video! I was greatly encouraged by it!

I hope this offers encouragement and not just salt in a wound. I had 3 medical professionals tell me that they thought I would not be able to conceive. My precious daughter proved them all wrong!

Sorry! I didn't mean to be anonymous in the previous comment.

Anna S said...

Melian,

I'm so happy those doctors were wrong! But you know how it is: we humans operate with statistics, God works miracles!

Anna S said...

PS: When N.P. saw this, he said to me, "Did you notice how glowy was the woman who said she 'gave up her career to be a Mom'?"

Jenny said...

My husband and I have lost 2 babies (9 wks and 15 wks) and struggled with infertility problems. This soooo sums up how I feel.

Who is it that sings this song? She looks very familiar to me, but can't put a name to her face.

Anna S said...

Jenny,

I'm so sorry for what you had to go through. I know that, never having been pregnant, I can't fully understand, but I can imagine what you must have felt.

The singer's name is Kellie Coffey (not sure about the spelling...).

Jenny said...

Thank you very much, Anna. I've been reading your blog for a while now but that was my first time to comment. Found yours through Dawn's blog.

*cry blubber* This was such a wonderful song & video. I really need some tissues now!

Dear God, Please help people realize there are some wonderful, life affirming alternitves to killing the helpless unborn children. Through your precious Son, Jesus Christ, Amen.

Okay, I'm going to go bury my head in my pillow and give my most precious daughter a huge hug when she wakes up from her nap. *sniff sniff*

God Bless.

Found your site via Sheri's website. I recently found out that I will be unable to carry a pregnancy due to a botched surgery years ago so this song really touched me as I know what it is like to realize that I will never be able to give birth to children if ever I decide to get married. Thanks for sharing such a powerful song!

Tracy said...

Anna,
This was very touching. I suffered a miscarriage before Mac was born. It broke our hearts, but I think that it made me even more thankful when we did conceive again, and gave birth to a healthy baby.

Anna S said...

Tracy,

I'm so sorry about your miscarriage, this is one of my biggest fears when I think about possible future pregnancies. And I'm so very happy that you have your 4 beautiful, healthy children.

This is a 5-hankie music video, for sure!! We waited 7 years before being blessed with our first. It certainly wasn't my timing, but God apparently saw it differently. Three lovely children now, & I'm so happy to be their mother.

Anna S said...

Brenda, I'm so glad things worked out so beautifully for you, in God's perfect timing!

Hi Anna,

Thanks for putting this up. Sometimes it makes pain more bearable to know that it is understood.

Thank you for sharing this touching video ... I was directed to it by a friend on Hannah's Prayer, an online ministry for Christian married women dealing with infertility. (www.hannah.org) We struggled with infertility for 5 years before our first son was born, and we were blessed with son #2 a couple of years later.
This is an incredible video ... I'm off to learn more about the singer.

Anna S said...

Terryl, congratulations on having your two sweet sons! I can imagine they are the apple of your eye!
I'm always so happy to hear a story of infertility overcome.

Heather said...

Oh, my. My husband and I experienced several miscarriages before our son was born. Now we are going through secondary infertility, which makes our son's birth all the more miraculous to us.
