The path of infertility is not a path anyone plans to be on. The devastation of a pregnancy loss is not something anyone expects. As Christians, we believe that whatever road God has given us is for our good, even if it doesn’t feel like it in the moment. There are so many questions, so many disappointments when you are struggling with the pain of infertility and pregnancy loss, and sometimes, it can be very lonely.
That’s one reason why Hearts of Hope was created. It was started so that women of faith can find the strength, encouragement, comfort and support from God’s word, and from each other. Please know that you are not alone in the emotions that you have.
The second reason why Hearts of Hope was created is to raise awareness in our church communities. There are so many couples that struggle with infertility, or couples who have lost a child or children to pregnancy loss. But it’s extremely difficult to be open about emotions that are so raw, and so easily wounded. We want it to be ok that we struggle with pain that one can’t understand unless you’ve lived it yourself. It’s not something you “get over and move on” from. You don’t go back to who you used to be, because that person no longer exists. The pain of pregnancy loss and infertility changes you; it takes away your naivety. So we hope to help others understand that.
We pray that God will give you the courage to reach out to our group, as it is a brave thing to reach out for help and support when you are hurting. Whether you are currently experiencing infertility, have just lost a child to pregnancy loss, or if you are on the other side of your journey, please contact us, come for coffee with us, and be supported by others who have experienced similar challenges.
We ask for your prayers for this group! Please pray for those who are part of this group, and groups like it? And also for those who aren’t part of a support group, but are going through similar circumstances, and need your prayers just as much.
If you’re looking for a group to join, would like more information, or would love someone to talk to, we’d love to hear from you.
