NATIONAL INFERTILITY AWARENESS WEEK

April 21-27, 2019


We’ve loved creating a community of women that have struggled with baby loss (miscarriage or infant loss) and/or delayed fertility. And while our community is comprised of women who have felt loss in varying degrees, our hope and identity is still in Christ.

This year, we are dedicating our contribution to National Infertility Awareness Week to raise awareness to God’s faithfulness and his incredible redemption. We are committed to share the stories of his goodness despite the pain and loss we’ve endured.


Join our #iamfruitful campaign:

  1. Take a photo with an “I am” statement. You can hold a sign, wear a shirt, stand in front of a banner, hold a mug, or write it in the sand! Include #iamfruitful on your sign.

  2. In the contents, share more of your story.

  3. Post to Social Media and don’t forget to include to tag us @i.am.fruitful!

I am Hope.

We have prayed for a pregnancy for over 5 years, but infertility is not my identity. God has redeemed our desire for a biological child with the growth of our family through adoption. We are still hoping and praying for a bio child, but in the meantime, God has expanded my heart to care so deeply for adoption and foster care.

I am Grateful.

I have walked through 3 miscarriages that left me with a lot of questions about my body, but I never questioned God’s faithfulness to fulfill my desire to be a Mother.

Despite hardships, pain, loss, I made the decision over and over again to CHOOSE to be brave. No matter my health situation or life circumstance, I have continued to trust God and declare:

I am Brave.
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭103:1-5‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Scripture teaches us, don't be afraid, stand firm, be bold. Growing up, I was hardly any of those. I let fear grip me and I'm sure the enemy just loved sitting back watching me unravel myself.

The great part about my gentle God is that he used those moments to bring me to my knees and built me back up in truth. I'm stronger and more powerful than ever before knowing he has given me a mighty strength and nothing can conquer that power.  

I am Fearless.

I have had three miscarriages and two pregnancies resulting in my beautiful baby boys. While the heartbreak of my miscarriages is something that will never leave me, what I remember most about my journey to become a mom was the paralyzing fear of pregnancy after loss.

Both of my successful pregnancies were somewhat high-risk and I would hold my breath at every doctors appointment until they located the heartbeat. In those 9 months, I had to find a strength that only the Lord could give me to overcome my fear. I turned my fear into strength and because of Him:

I am Strong.
