    Thank you for your willingness to share your story. You are not alone in your infertility struggles! And our God is a good God Who does all according to His perfect plan, in His perfect timing!!
    My husband & I are in the same position you are. We’ve been married for almost 6.5 years. After year 2 (about 2.5 years into our marriage), we sought a fertility doctor to see if there was something preventing us from having children. Because my husband is a type-1 diabetic, we knew that could affect his ability to produce offspring. The fertility doctor confirmed our fears, telling us that there was a 99% chance we’d never be able to naturally conceive children. It was a hard thing to hear! But, we gave it to God & moved forward. Then, 1 year later, we discovered we were expecting! We were very excited and the pregnancy progressed well into the second trimester. In God’s providence, however, on May 7, 2016 (the day before Mother’s Day) at 20 weeks gestation, He chose to take our precious son, Abel, home to be with Him for eternity. It was a devastating loss and we struggled to believe that God is good and His plans for us are perfect. We found out a few weeks later that I had a polyp in my womb (since removed) that may have contributed to our miscarriage. Since then, we’ve had several 1st trimester miscarriages (usually around 8 to 10 weeks or so). It has been a hard road to walk, but through it all, we’ve learned to lean on God & His good plan for us and to lean on & comfort each other too. I pray these natural fertility treatments work for you and that God blesses you with the children you both desire as a good gift from His loving hands!

    Dear Kristen, I am greateful for your honest and touching story. I really hope your wishes will be fulfilled. As an MD, however, I can’t help but look at this problem from medical point of view. It just occurred to me that, if there are no obvious physical obstacles to normal pregnancy, it can be due to a certain condition that is called antiphospholipid syndrome. The body produces antibodies that can promote development of blood clots. This can affect various organs but in some cases the only sign of disorder is fertility failure. Now, I don’t want by any means to imply that this is what is happening to you. I just wanted to inform you just in case you haven’t already done this sort of testing. Once again I wish you all the best. May God bless you!

    Dear Kristen and Zack, I thank you with all my heart for opening up and be so honest and vulnerable. Struggling with fertility is so hard. I can’t even imagine the pain of losing two precious children to miscarriage.
    I am deeply sorry for the horrible comments you recieved on youtube – it was so brave of you both to tell your story. As a Christian, I don’t agree with most opinions you support with Girl Defined, but this goes well beyond disagreement. I watched your video some time ago and came back today. I have realized, listening to your struggles and yet your peaceful trust in God, that we have much more in common than I thought, and that I have much to learn from you all.
    I’ve been remembering you in my daily since the first time I saw your video. It has been such a humbling experience. I pray you’ll have the strengt and the peace to walk this path as a family, wherever it might lead you both to.
    My heart goes to you.
