After years of trying to conceive, James & Portia told everyone they were having a baby. After Portia's pastor asked her to speak on faith, she miscarried—and preached anyway. This is their story. "I really didn't know if I wanted to continue a relationship with God. That's how hurt I was."

Katie Guillory gets straight to the point about getting help before you reach your breaking point, the all-consuming nature of infertility, and the difficult conversation that may have saved her marriage. "This is our cross to bear. So, we're going to make it through it, our faith is going to be stronger, and our marriage is going to be stronger."

We discuss infertility, miscarriage, MTHFR mutation, PCOS, getting support, the effect of infertility on marriage, and the devastation of losing sixteen embryos during IVF.

Chipley's infertility story began when her husband was given two weeks to live—at age three. She candidly shares about her husband's two and a half years of chemotherapy, Sertoli cell only syndrome, brain tumors, embryo adoption, the simultaneous devastation and opportunity resulting from cancer, and God's sovereignty through it all.

"When everything is good in your life and you have no medical issues or anything, it's easy to trust God. There's nothing going on. But when something totally turns your world around and you're not in control, you learn to really rely on God."

Yoga instructor Sadie Landry talks about the fog of infertility & the illusion of control. “I would never change it. I mean it sucks, and I obviously want a baby. Like, #infertilitysucks is the hashtag of all hashtags, but I wouldn't change it. And I know our journey's not over, and that's a struggle. But I know that IT'S NOT OVER, so that's hope as well.”

In case you’ve wondered where we’ve been, and why we haven’t published any episodes lately, Beth and I spent six weeks in the hospital with our daughter, Lexie. After some dark days and weeks, Lexie was well enough to leave the hospital. She is still recovering and doing well. If you’re curious about the details, I published several public posts on Facebook using the hashtag #LoveForLexie.


It’s good to be back doing what we love: serving the infertile community. Please check sarahs-laughter.com for news about our upcoming workshop in August.


Grateful,

Jason Forbus

Laurel Broussard opens up about the miscarriage that rocked her marriage, the fertility medicine that put her in the emergency room, and her transformation into her own healthcare advocate. “When you want a baby so badly, you are willing to do anything. You will stand on your head. You will take whatever medicines they tell you to take. You just do not care—because all you want is that baby.”

Endometriosis affected Margo Kitto’s relationships, budget, and her concept of pain. “It’s hard to just come out and say, ‘Oh, guess what? I was in the fetal position last night and I couldn’t get up. I couldn't walk I was in so much pain. I thought my body was just going to shut down on me.’ Sometimes I just forget that that happens.”

Please visit Margo’s blog at http://allforthelove.squarespace.com/ and her Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/all_forthelove/.
