Invitro Fertilization may be unethical to some. But for others it may be heaven sent. For me personally, as a believer in god.. it was heaven sent. I remember having a talk with god, and saying that I was more than ready to become a mom, probably before I spoke to my husband :). However, things did not fall into place the way they do for most people. After trying the old fashioned way we had to seek help, which took more time, tears, effort and prayers. I recall having a conversation with a very close friend on the telephone, and she said to me “do you see all of these people walking around with multiples? Well that could be you”. It was at that moment that it became real to me that IVF could possibly be our road to success.
Though having this conversation with my friend, I did not dream of having twins/multiples. What most people do not realize is when you are faced with the unability of having children, you want one.. atleast one (I know that was the least that I’d asked for once our process was complete). When our doctor gave us the wonderful new of two successful eggs.. I Thanked God for that miracle or those miracles, because it was heaven sent and that doctor was my angel. He will always be an angel to me. I had to share this because I was recently asked to share my story of IVf and pregnancy…. which, by the way after conception came alot of scary moments and 8 months of bedrest, doctors, home nursing and other things. But I have only shared the short version of this success story for all believers. Yes this process is man made but god has made it capable for these angels to help yearning people become hopefully become great parents. Does anyone else agree or disagree for personal reasons?
