This is the section where I write witty remarks about myself that will interest you enough to keep reading my blog. Problem is? I’m terrible at summing myself up on the internet. (I’m also secretly jealous of people who write amazing About Me sections, but let’s just keep that between us.)
Since I hate to completely disappoint, here’s the basic deets: I am Marixsa, a 30-something gal who’s been married to my wonderful husband, Jake*, since 2003. We are proud parents to a lovely ball of feline fur (Mega Fluff) and a neurotic, enthusiastic 65-pound lap dog (Puppy). Jake and I have been trying to conceive our first baby since 2011 (got a sec? see our TTC Timeline!).
The doctors have ominously given us a 3 – 4% chance of conceiving naturally. But our faith in the Lord is stronger than in man’s medicine. It has kept us pressing on through the years, and we are petitioning God to—in His timing—bless us with the desire of our hearts.
God is not a genie, but He is still a miracle maker!
Few people in my real life know about our fertility struggles. I started this blog as an outlet to navigate the maze of dealing with stage IV endometriosis, all-things-TTC, infertility treatments, miscarriages, surgeries, emotions, and other unexpected bits of life that creep up in between.
Above all else, I am trusting in God’s awesome promises and seeking Him throughout this sojourn to “…give the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother. Praise the LORD!” (Psalms 113:9 NLT).
