I wanted to give you an update on the blog that I wrote over a year ago.

My daughter and her husband have been trying to conceive for 6 years.  After 7 IUIs and a miscarriage, they made a decision last year to try IVF.  The procedure is around $18,000 of which insurance will not pay. After months of saving, they had hoped to be ready to begin after Christmas.  The progesterone, instead of helping, has delayed the process somewhat.  The doctors assure them that this can happen, but it's one more thing to concern themselves with.  They will call the doctor on Monday to find out what the next step is. Hopefully, the process will begin within the next two weeks.  Christy will have a personal nurse who will tell her which step is next.  There are so many days of pills and so many days of injections and then the retrieval of the eggs and the fertilization and then the implantation.  It's a bit overwhelming to me so I just said, "Tell me what's next."

So, I ask for your prayers for my precious, baby girl and SIL.  They are at a better place now and are taking it all as it comes.  She's having some reactions to the progesterone as well.  This week she has had a virus on top of this.

I've never stopped believing.  With eyes of faith, I can see what she can't.  I've believed even when she couldn't.  So now, I wait.  Still trusting.  Still believing in a miracle.

Will you believe with me?

Yes, we're believing for a Happy New Year and a new addition.



  1. They are a lovely couple and I have been and will continue to pray. God bless.

  2. Bonnie...I will indeed pray for your beautiful daughter and her husband. The anguish and heartache of infertility is not easily felt unless one has experienced it.

    I offer my humblest prayers for her...

    And I am certain she is tired of hearing this, but years ago, I was told by a very respectful doctor that I would never be able to conceive a child on my own. I think of that moment when I hug my four sweet souls.

    With God, all things are possible. : )

  3. What a darling couple. I will be praying with you. In fact, if it's ok, I'd like to add their picture to my prayer journal, so I will remember to pray for them often.

    Bonnie, our Tristan born last June is our miracle baby. I know God has one for you too.

  4. What a beautiful couple! I watched my sister go through this, along with several friends. I'm happy to oray for her and to believe along with you!

  5. Bonnie, I don't know if comments on older posts show up..but I just read your Second Row, Piano Side.....and left a comment.

  6. Having much experience in this area ( three children as an outcome) I will completely keep them in prayer. If she ever has any questions please let her know ( or you) to email me. I would love to share my support to her. Best of luck!

  7. I will keep them in prayer. I was told after nearly 7 years of marriage, there would be no children. Well..during the 8th yr, I became pregnant. So..prayer does work. Or should I say..we just didn't worry about it anymore and let God handle it. God blessed us with one son almost 17 yrs ago..Blessings

  8. What a lovely couple….wishing them all the best. I love that you are right there in the believing.
    Prayers for them both.

  9. When they finally have children, they are going to be the best parents who know what a gift they are given!

  10. I can only imagine the heartache parents must go through who want children so badly. It hurts you for them. We have friends who are experiencing the same thing. They both love children dearly and still have not been blessed with one of their own yet. This is a request that will be kept in prayer.


I love the friendships I have developed through blogging. Visit and comment and I'll be sure to drop by and talk to you.
