Moms in the Making – Session Three

It’s been awhile since I have given a update for our Moms in the Making group, but it’s way overdue to share a HUGE praise. Remember all the girls who got pregnant in the fall? All girls have had their babies and all babies are healthy! They are ranging in age from a few weeks to 5 months. How awesome is that?!

This year, the group has been much quieter and smaller. We have gone the whole year with no pregnancy announcements, until last month, when one of the girls who has been in the group since it first started announced she is pregnant with TRIPLETS! A triple portion from the Lord! Praise Jesus! We are really believing that her breakthrough is going to kick-start the rest of us!  

That leaves me left as the only person who was in the original group and is still in the group, but not pregnant. I wish that weren’t the case. If you are wondering if I have had an honest conversation with God about this – yes, I have! While at a baby shower a few weeks ago where every girl there was a mom (except a friend who got married last year), I reminded myself that God doesn’t put me in these situations to tease me. He doesn’t do this to torture me or mock me or make me feel lonely or bitter. Instead of throwing a fit, I’ve decided to recognize that He has and is creating LIFE all around me. God is the God of life!!! I have been able to witness it for years now and it’s such a blessing to see! And, I can say with confidence that since I am the only one left out of these two specific groups I have mentioned, I am NEXT!

I’ve grown so much with these ladies and even though it’s a smaller group now, it’s such a precious time in fellowship and prayer. Our Moms in the Making group is being added to our group list at church and will be published and announced in a few weeks, so hopefully we get some more girls. I am praising God for all the life He has created and I am so thankful all the babies are here and healthy. I’m also praising Him in advance for all of us who are still waiting!!!!

    I’m in agreement with you…”you got NEXT!” 🙂 So glad that you’re celebrating the life “sprouts” that you’ve gotten see. God has called you REST in knowing that He loves you, desires only good for you, and He’s pleased when you put your faith in His promise to say “YES!” (2 Cor. 1:20). No fear! No anxiousness! Just REST!
    Blessings,

    Caroline, I love your attitude in this. And I love that you aren’t fearful to have an honest conversation with the Lord—I think he really honors and ministers to us when we bring it to the cross. I’m praying for and with you girl!

    You always have the best attitude. Its really amazing. I think its great that you are adding this group to your church. I was actually thinking on Sunday after church how I do not fit into any group that they offer and it made me kind of sad. They have young single women’s group, and young mom’s group and literally nothing that fits my place in life. Its so great that you have started a group like this for people to connect.

    Be blessed and stay encouraged in Him 🙂

    I do so admire your faith walk and your joy! I am delighted to see that you are opening this group to our church! I have had the privilege to pray for a number of these “Moms in the Making!” at and through our church and it is a privilege indeed to stand and continue to stand with each of you. I am believing for great and mighty news from all!

    I’m so glad I found your blog! I love your attitude, and admire your faith. My husband was diagnosed with azoospermia two years ago. I’m not sure we will every be able to overcome that diagnosis, but I have to continue to remind myself that it’s out of my hands and out of the doctors hands. It’s in the hands of God, and he does have a plan for all of us!

    I love how God has been working in your group. Which means He’s been working in YOU as well because God doesn’t show favoritism. You’re right, YOU ARE NEXT! Keep resting in His great, profound, abundant love for you and your breakthrough will come. Hugs!

    Good things come to those who wait, patience is a virtue, and all the other proverbs and cliches that apply, my friend! You are already a mother in heart, and your prayers will be answered, and the plan will become plain and clear – I just know it!

    It takes a strong person to be so happy for others when you are waiting for your own baby. I think you’re perspective is admirable. Also, triplets! That’s exciting and a lot haha

    Standing in agreement with you that your time is next. I know God hears and I know he’s been preparing in ways we can’t even see yet for when you get your little miracle. Everything you’ve experienced up to this point will matter when you little one is safely tucked away in your womb. I can’t wait to celebrate with you seriously!!!

    What a great way of looking at things. I know a lot of girls dealing with infertility choose to avoid situations where everyone is pregnant, but what joy that comes when we celebrate life God is creating rather than wallowing in self-pity. Love this! Believing with you 🙂

    I love that you’re doing this group, Caroline. Can I ask how you address the group when a member gets pregnant? Does the member stay in the group? I’ve been thinking about trying to start a similar group but can’t get past these questions. I’d love to hear more about how the group operate- perhaps in a future post? 🙂

    It sounds like you have a purpose in that group – to support the others for just a little while longer! I remember when I suddenly realized that I was the veteran in the room; it was a weird feeling but it felt good to pay forward the support and advice and levity and warmth that others gave me when I was first struggling with infertility.

    I praise God for leading me to this post. I don’t believe in coincidence so I know He lead me to exactly what I needed for this moment. It’s a breath of fresh air to see that I am not alone. That’s how I felt for so long. But the lies of the enemy have been silenced by the truth of God’s word. Great Grace to you and thank you for sharing. I agree with you, “You are Next” and so am I.
