We've received another giveaway for the Inaugural Midwest Infertility Awareness Conference on November 12. Author Janet Thompson has donated 1 copy of her book Dear God, Why Can't I Have a Baby?
Dear God, Why Can't I Have a Baby? provides women and ''couples-in-waiting'' with tools, direction, guidance, hope, and encouragement not to lose faith in God, or in each other, as they strive to share their love with a child.
Rachel's cry of barrenness in Genesis 31:1, ''Give me children, or I'll die!'' is a wail that still echoes around the world, as one in six couples experience infertility. Infertility statistics are staggering: nearly 6.1 million women and 2.1 million married couples in the United States will experience difficulty having a child.
Onlookers, and sadly even churches, often treat these ''empty arms'' couples with indifference, platitudes, criticism, or minimize the pain of miscarriages and stillborn babies. Couples struggling with infertility say they often feel alone and ostracized in their own churches and families. As a result, many infertile couples grow desperate, and some like Rachel, even feel suicidal when denied the one dream they have had since childhood-having a baby.
This book seeks to ease readers' pain and accompany them on their infertility journey by offering: companionship, a place to cry, a way to journal and keep records, and most importantly, the strengthening of their faith in God."
Thank you Janet for your donation and support!
