Mission Accomplished

"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me." - 2 Corinthians 12:9

We have believed this verse for many years, but how could we know that Paul was absolutely right without being able to experience it for ourselves? We couldn't and we believe that is one reason why God allows suffering. While we are still sad and grieving the loss of our two children, God's grace has never been more real to us. We definitely feel prayers on our behalf and God's grace is indeed carrying us through this difficult time. I was even able to attend my friend's baby shower yesterday and share in her joy - that was definitely God's grace!

God, in His kindness, has also not given us much time to sit and dwell on this loss due to our move this weekend and looking to buy our first house (we were actually meeting with a realtor on Thursday when we received word that my beta was negative). Today is August 1st which means our 2nd embryo transfer will be next month! With all of that going on, we don't have much time to stay in the valley. We feel God's strength enabling us to move forward and look ahead to all He has in store - What grace!

And at the end of the day, our mission was accomplished. God called us to rescue these frozen lives and we did. They were frozen and now they have "woken up" in the arms of Jesus. We feel so privileged that God used us to build His Kingdom is such a special way! But, we are most definitely continuing to pray that He would allow our next children to have birth on this earth!

P.S. I begin BCPs tonight. We receive new profiles to review this week, and my new protocol should be sent in the next 2-3 weeks. Again, we are literally jumping right back into saving more frozen lives! And we are very excited to become parents again. :)

Your faith and your outlook on this is amazing. did rescue those souls from the freezer...and for that you should be very proud.
I am sorry for the BFN, I know those hurt even with the best outlook. And I will be praying along with you that this next cycle will be the one that brings a baby into your arms.

I know how you feel, truly. When I had one of my m/c last year, it was sooo difficult, but I also felt my bio clock was ticking and I had no time to waste, so we pressed forward, still grieving. God grew me through that time. He is for you too as I know you know that. YOu will be a better mother for it all, though the pain is real and raw, your faith and straight and narrow path to your children will bring you exceeding joy so very soon. I have faith He will bless you beyond imagination! I am honored to follow you on this journey.
