A Fertile Heart, by Carolyn Majoran

Intro to Me & My Journey of Infertility

Carolyn MajoranI am a Christ-follower. I was raised in a Christian home and dedicated my life to Jesus at the tender age of 5. I have had times of closeness with my Saviour and times that I’ve felt a chasm separated me from Him but He has always been there. My faith is the jumping off point of every aspect of my life. This blog is dedicated to my Saviour as much of what I write is based on my personal experience with God during my journey through infertility.

I am a happily married woman to my amazing husband, Ray.  15 years so far! In 2002, after 3 years of marriage, Ray and I felt that we were finally ready to grow our family by beginning to have children. The following 5 years were some of the darkest, loneliest and heart-breaking times I’ve ever experienced. They culminated in the birth of a baby girl, our daughter Adalai Elizabeth, that we were blessed to adopt in 2007.

Infertile.  It’s a hard word to hear and an even harder journey to live day to day. My hope in penning this blog is that you would be encouraged to keep pressing on.  The doctors may look after your physical and even mental state but, more importantly, you need to look after your spiritual state.  Walking an infertility journey can wreak havoc on your walk with Christ. May you find hope in Him – even during the dark times. May you find peace in the waiting and comfort in His arms. May my story point you to the One who saw me through my journey.
