What do I think God meant when he gave me infertility?

I think he meant for my husband and I to grow closer, become stronger, love deeper. I think God meant for us to find the fortitude within ourselves to get up every time infertility knocks us down. I think God meant for our medical community to discover medicines, invent medical equipment, create procedures and protocols. I think God meant for us to find a cure for infertility.


No, God never meant for me not to have children. That's not my destiny; that's just a fork in the road I'm on. I've been placed on the road less travelled, and, like it or not, I'm a better person for it. Clearly, God meant for me to develop more compassion, deeper courage, and greater inner strength on this journey to resolution, and I haven't let him down.


Frankly, if the truth be known, I think God has singled me out for a special treatment. I think God meant for me to build a thirst for a child so strong and so deep that when that baby is finally placed in my arms, it will be the longest, coolest, most refreshing drink I've ever known.


While I would never choose infertility, I can not deny that a fertile woman could never know the joy that awaits me. Yes, one way or another, I will have a baby of my own. And the next time someone wants to offer me unsolicited advice I'll say, "Don't tell me what God meant when he handed me infertility. I already know."

I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 19 years old. My husband and I was TTC for almost 9 months with no luck.
After continuing to try without any success, we began clomid treatments. The Clomid making me sick to my stomach.
After 4 rounds, we did not get pregnant. And then I contacted Eka kingdom to cast pregnancy spell on me to Get Pregnant because the clomid and the other fertility drugs didn't worked on me.
After 3 months of his spell casting I can't believe that I got positive result. I'm PREGNANT! We are more than our physical bodies, treating yourself holistically by contacting Eka on (dreka14demons@gmail.com) you will surely Get Pregnant and there is going to greatly improvement in your chances of healing and conceiving, so you can move toward a successful, healthy pregnancy.
