MFIF - Male Factor Infertility

What the world is telling us today: (We got Jack's test results back.)
Jack is infertile (t00) and the ONLY way you will ever have a CHANCE at getting pregnant is through invitro fertilization (IVF) with ICSI. (ICSI - intracytoplasmic sperm injection - which is a fancy way of saying "inject sperm in the middle of the egg". ICSI is a very effective method to fertilize eggs in the IVF lab after they have been retrieved from the female.)

What I am hearing God speak into my heart loud and clear:

There are many things that could be wrong reproductively speaking with a man, and the thing that I made Jack with, is the ONE thing that has no earthy cure. The one thing that no doctor or treatment or medicine can fix. Lean on me, let me work MY miracles in your life. Let me show you and the world that through God, all things are possible.

We will NOT be weighed down by these results. We will not be defined by this diagnosis. We will trust that God has a reason for this and that part of that reason is that we can show the world that if we lean on God that HE has the cure and He will right whatever wrong there is. It's amazing to me that He would choose the one problem that has no earthly cure. No pill or medical treatment, nothing Jack can do or change can change the shape of his sperm.

What can we do from here? Continue to be a witness. I feel like we have just been given the stone like David and told to throw it at Goliath. So God please take aim with our throw, and guide it. Guide our testimony to show everyone that You are God and Lord of our lives. Let our journey to be parents be an example to others of your greatness and how amazing and awesome you are. We will not put too much weight on the things of the world. We will not put all of our hope in doctors and drugs and treatments. The ONLY thing we have hope in now is 100% God. God will guide us and lead us through this.


  1. Your faith in God is very inspirational, Allie.

  2. I know you want comments and not silence, but I usually don't know what to say, honestly. So just know you are in my prayers and this is just part of "your (great) story"! :)
