Helen and Mark's Infertility Journey

Helen started writing about her infertility journey in 2016 when it became apparent that things wouldn’t work out as they had hoped. They tried IUI and IVF and you can read about their experiences in the following pages.

If you are on a similar journey, or want to know how to support people who are walking this path, this series of posts may be an encouragement. You are not alone – many others have walked and are walking this rollercoaster.

The journey goes through some of the highs and lows of the last few years, up until 2020 when it became apparent that medical interventions were not working either.

Dear Helen,
I am so proud of you. Getting this out and on paper heals the wound. It really does. I sympathize and walk with you in this journey.

    Thank you and yes it does. I hope it helps other people too.

Sending love, sending hugs blessings and prayers. I won’t pretend to know why you have been chosen to follow this journey but I am sure you are surrounded by love. X

    I don’t know why either Alyzn, but I do trust God in it all!

I have been where you are. After 7 years of infertilty, my husband and I adopted 3 beautiful children from Russia. What an adventure and testimony that has been! I set my dream of having a baby of my own aside. When I was 40, I had a prophecy at church that I was entirely healed (no mention of a baby) but that set my heart to dreaming again. At the age of 45, I read the book “Chase the Lion” by Mark Batterson. The Holy Spirit told me to put a crib in my room as a step of faith. I felt like a lunatic, but I did it. I also received a prophecy from a visiting preacher “You think your dream is impossible but what you have in your heart, you will hold in your hands.” Last year during service, my pastor told everyone wanting a child to raise their hand. I argued with God for about 30 seconds then raised my hand (how embarrassing, I am OLD). God has honored me by continuing to encourage my heart for a child. I am now 47 and even more convinced I will get pregnant. I have NEVER been pregnant in 27 years of marriage. Thank you for sharing your journey. It is raw and will help many others. Have faith that what is in your heart, you will hold in your hands to the glory of God. I am believing with you. There is also a wonderful book by Nerida Walker “It is Finished” you might want to check it out. Many Blessings.

    Hi Kristie, wow what a great story and thank you for sharing some of it with me. I pray you too will become pregnant – we both know God can do incredible miracles!
