  1. Thank you for sharing your story, for your transparency and especially your vulnerability. Praying for your continued faith and endurance. Remember Jas.1:2,3 & Heb. 11:1.

    • Thank you for sharing your story. I understand your journey. Now at 59 I hope to able brag about my grandchildren. I have no children or grandchildren. I hope this year will be different.

  2. I had my first child at 37 and my second at 40. I had a miscarriage before each child was born. Pray like Hannah and keep the faith. If God has another route for you to become a Mom, be open to that as well. Man makes plans but God orders our steps. His plan is always best. Be encouraged.

  3. Beautifully written and thank you for sharing. I empathize with you, having miscarried at 25 weeks at the age of 40. Our hopes and dreams were shattered because we knew that my age would probably prevent future pregnancies, and it did. Don’t stop having faith that you will become a mother. God is awesome. About a year my miscarried God blessed us with a newborn through adoption. As much as we wanted our daughter, we couldn’t love our son any more. I’m wishing you the gifts of Gods grace, mercy and peace as well as that of a child. There’s nothing like being a mother.

  4. Faitth, as your mother, you have my compassion. As your friend, you have my hugs without a word. As a woman, I can’t imagine the challenge, but I extend grace. I hear hope beaming from your soul. One day, your daughters will read your story and celebrate with you.

    Thanks for sharing. I’ve learned to enjoy the journey in between places.

  5. Keep living and believing. You must live and not just be ALIVE! When God wants you to become a mother, you will. Open your mind to the possibility that you don’t have to carry a baby in your womb, to be a mother. Your story plot may be different, but the conclusion will be the same. Keep the faith and live in the present. Your time is coming.

  6. I know this may sound a little harsh, keep living life, enjoy every minute! In those times don’t focus on not having your children yet, they will come. I have never had a miscarriage but I had my first daughter at 33 and my second daughter at 39. I now never ask my daughter “about children”, when they feel the time is right they will make that choice. I think too much emphasis in our society is placed on people, “about when,” that is a personal decision. Stay and monitor that you are in good mental and physical health, both you and your spouse. Engage in preventative health practices both physically and mentally and be supportive and loving with and between each other. Those children will come. Continue to have faith they will arrive and bless you both. My daughter’s are now 33 & 28, and I am 67.

  7. Your story reminds me that waiting is indeed hard, but remember that waiting is a process not a punishment. Just when I thought that my 5 nieces would be my only children, up pops a daughter a couple of months before my 40th birthday. Please know that God is faithful in His promises to us. If He has given you the desire that you have to be a mom, you will be a mom. Wait on Him and be open to the possibilities that God has in store for you. Be blessed my daughter, God has got you on His mind, He’s just waiting on the right time to bless your socks off!
