From my teenage years, I was told that I could not have Children. I apparently had too many medical conditions and with the unfortunate events that I had experienced, it led to the Doctors confirming that it was “medically impossible”.
The week before our Wedding, Kieren and I went to see the Senior Gynaecologist (I had four overseeing my case) but she advised that they would be preforming a total hysterectomy, three months after getting back from Honeymoon.
I had dreamt since I was a little Girl of having children but I remember my Mum saying to me one day that “life is not a fairytale.” This is true but it doesn’t stop you from believing – so I prayed and I declared scripture over my life.
This is Sarai Louise, her name means “Princess Warrior” (yeah…we didn’t think that one through!) but she has been the most precious gift, God has given to us. Sarai has the most beautiful and caring heart. She is strong in faith and character and definitely lives up to her name!
I’m not saying that God grants us everything that we desire, but I know in my walk with Christ, that all things are possible and I am reminded on a daily basis of Gods goodness, through our Daughter. I still had to have the hysterectomy around a year after Sarai was born but we need to remember the blessings that God has given to us because sometimes, it is all too easy to forget.
