Bloom

Two weeks ago, the fertility doctor told me I only have about a 2% chance of having a successful pregnancy.

I already had three miscarriages, and my husband and I are starting to give up all hope of having our baby someday.

How did I cope?

I read stories of women going through this pain. I cried. I went to work. I cried. I watched tv. I cried. I continued blogging. I cried. I prayed – a lot. I cried.

It was a very stressful time, and I wanted to stay home and do nothing yesterday. However, there’s nothing left in the fridge, so I dragged my feet to Whole Foods Market. As I entered the door, I saw a beautiful array of yellow, pink and purple tulip plants. I picked one of the purple tulips -and it made me smile.

I believe that God has called us for a special purpose. It’s hard to trust Him when things are not going well in our life. However, we have to accept His will and continue to thrive in whatever situation He has placed us. We have to persevere as He prunes every bit of our soul – removing anything that doesn’t help us grow.

I still don’t understand His plans for me.

All I know is that He is in control of my life. This journey is getting challenging, but I still believe that everything works for good for those who love Him. That in the end, despite the bumpy road – life is still beautiful.

In the meantime, I will continue to live, grow and by His grace — BLOOM.

  1. Man, that is tough news.. I will say — my mom had me at age 39 (back in 1988, too) .. she had 2 miscarriages before me, and only had one ovary from a defect in birth control she was taking. The doctor split her one ovary and somehow she managed to have me! So crazy things do happen…

    1. I think learning to accept the situation helped me move forward. It’s a rollercoaster ride but sometimes all you can do is pray and hope for the best. Thank you so much for your kind words.
