Menopause, then positive pregnancy test

This article was so encouraging that someone sent to me on the IVFaith's from Christian Women Today, from Marsha Marks. She wrote a touching article on her 8 year struggle with infertility.

During her struggle to conceive, Marsha went into menopause.

The adoption agency turned down her and her husband. Even her doctors refused to treat her anymore, even suggesting that she seek therapy "to deal with not accepting things as they are."

Marsha's husband became too discouraged to pray anymore.

The phone rang one day. "Marsha, your pregnancy test came back positive."

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
