Infertile? Ha! You don’t know my God

identical-twinsEverybody thought I was dead.

When a truck plowed into my car that fateful night, it pushed my crushed car all the way into the gas station. It finally came to rest just shy of hitting the gas pump.

By the grace of God, I survived. But, according to the doctor, I wouldn’t be able to get pregnant. The steering shaft had been driven into my abdomen and pierced my ovaries. The doctor explained that I should be grateful just to be alive. (This story is written by a mother at our Christian school in Santa Monica.)

a-match-made-in-heavenFor some reason, I had it stuck in my mind to have three children through two pregnancies. Of course that I meant twins.

As the doctor was explaining the cold hard facts with kind words, I didn’t pay too much attention. My faith was placed in Jesus, not on medical science.

barren-to-blessed“Don’t worry about that, doctor,” I told him. “I will have two pregnancies and three babies because I asked Jesus for them, and I know that he will give me my children.”

I was released from the hospital a week after the accident. At the time, I lived in Florida. An immigrant from Guatemala, I came to America already a Christian. I got involved in a church where they taught you to pray with faith. And I never stopped praying.

At age 30, I married a godly man named Mauro Ivan Arango in December 1993. In September the next year, Jafet, my firstborn, made his entrance into the world. He was truly a miracle baby. My doctor couldn’t believe it. Read the rest of the incredible infertility story.

  4. I know the feeling. After an operation at 21 on the Pituitary Gland in my head I was told I cannot have children. I told myself I do not want them anyway. Though when I fell in love I would have loved children and like a miracle the doctor I asked to help with this said that I was pregnant. The nurses said they have never seen someone so excited about that news like me. It did happen a second time too and I see my 2 wonderful boys ( now adults) as gifts from heaven. I love them with all my heart. Having that operation then, I remember giving my life into God’s hands. It was up to him to let me wake up after wards. I am truly in his hands, he saved me from going blind and guided me all the way to now. I know he will continue to guide me in the future.

  5. What a wonderful testimony! Praise God!!
