Grace got me connected with an IVF Specialist, whose passion, hope and desire for you to achieve
That which you want is almost as high as yours. How can I forget Doctor Joseph Alimasunya of Green-Onyx Fertility Centre? He called me personally after my first attempt was negative, he gave me a message of hope that got me to where I am today.
Doctor Joseph told me: “We are in this together, we will not give up until we see you smile, so don’t give up.” That meant a whole lot to me. I knew on that day that I was at the right place. Green-Onyx is a centre where they truly care.
Before we went for the second cycle, the doctor suggested I go through a procedure called: Cervical dilatation. The procedure got me fixed a tube to my cervix; dangling down my legs for ten days (kudos to my husband). When that second attempt failed, I cried and almost gave up. The trauma, the medications, the injections and the money involved.
Doctor Joseph, in the presence of his team called me again. He once more surprised my husband and I with an unbelievable “utterance”. Doctor Joseph said: Don’t bother about the money for now, just don’t give up, and keep coming. We will continue treatment for you and when we get result we want – we will give you your bill. What! Where do they do that? Which business does that? Is this a business or charity? What I got in Green-Onyx is nothing but the working of God.
The God of Grace finally gave us a breakthrough. At a time when almost all hope was lost. The day we went for the result of our fourth IVF, my husband and I had discussed and agreed that we were going for surrogacy after the result. We both planned on how to convince Doctor Joseph that it was what we wanted. Since all my previous attempts to convince the doctor had failed. His answer was the same always “why are you giving up on yourself, there is absolutely no reason for surrogacy at this point” God bless you Doctor Joe. As I’m writing this book, I’m carrying “double for my trouble” heavily prego with my awesome twins. The God of Grace did not look at my heart to see the result I though I would have, He blessed me instead with good news and today I am a testimony to the awesomeness of God.
At this point, one thing I will like to say to those of you who are presently going through that horrifying period of waiting is: WAIT! Yah right you say? You know I have been there, I have been through it all, I say to you again WAIT! Wait on the Lord. You do not need to run from pillar to post like I did, because at the end of the day, it will happen when it will happen. If you can just hold on, you will save yourself a lot of hassles, lot of madness. I know it is the most difficult thing to do but when you think about it, it’s the only sensible thing to do. It is only God that has the capacity to give a child. As successful as science is today, even IVF fails. At my clinic, they pray before they start the procedure. Why? Because only God can give you a child. Even though the gynaecologist is transferring a live being into your uterus through IVF; the beings transferred into you still need the breath of life which only God can give.
