Miracle Pregnancy after Two Miscarriages

It had only been a month since the honeymoon, when Melissa and Mike learned she was pregnant. “We had both always wanted big families. So we just decided whenever we could. We weren’t going to wait. And we were hoping to get pregnant right away. We were just so excited.”

But at seven weeks, Melissa started bleeding heavily. “So I went to, I went to the emergency room and they confirmed that there wasn’t any heartbeat” said Melissa. “Right away when a mother conceives, you just get this attachment to that baby and that baby is instantly yours.”

They got pregnant a second time, but a routine ultrasound at 14 weeks showed she had miscarried again. “It was really tough. The second one was especially hard because I had made it so far and I was showing. And we were going to find out the gender and I thought we were all in the clear.”

Mike says, “We’ve learned a lot and grown a lot, especially all that stuff that soon in our marriage. It brings you together.”

Refusing to give up on their dream the couple kept trying to get pregnant, but were unable to.

“I guess once you go through these things, you wonder if it is ever going to happen. And I would just ask him why and just him –help me go through it. But I still didn’t doubt his plan for us.”

Even after two more years, they believed God would give them a child. “But it just comes down to choosing to believe,” says Mike, “I think just keeping perspective on that, you know, that God’s in control. I’m not in control.”

“I knew God was going to provide either way, through adoption. Or go through some kind of medical intervention. But, you know, we were both just open to whatever the lord had to do. It was hard.”

After much prayer and consideration they decided to make an appointment with a fertility doctor. “We had just discussed leading up that point that we were both ready to do whatever it took to have a baby.”

To lift her spirits, Melissa watched The 700 Club. “It was such an encouragement to me to build me up to go into work and hear these amazing Christian stories and these miracles and words of knowledge that I had never heard of before.”

Then just days before her doctor’s appointment, Melissa was watching the show, when Gordon and Wendy started praying.

There’s couples and you’re just crying out for a baby, and you’re having infertility problems. Just put your hand, ladies just put your hand on your belly, God is healing those issues right now in your uterus in Jesus name.

“I think I was just kind of watching in disbelief like oh my goodness, she’s saying it. She’s saying my problem! And so I just kind of like looked around even though I was by myself. I think that’s for me!”

The next day, Melissa canceled her appointment.  She was pregnant within the month!

“It was just incredible. I mean, you just can’t explain – it’s just so exciting to know that you’re going to have a baby.”

On October 14, 2014, they welcomed their son Gabriel into their family.

“So when he came out, he came out screaming. That miracle baby came out with a fight. And he came out with God’s fight. And it was just so exciting because he was all we had ever waited for. Especially the first one because you just have no idea that you can love a baby so much. So we’re just so excited and elated.”

Today, Mike and Melissa have two healthy boys, and a daily reminder of a loving God.

“I just see God—I just see how much God loves me. And God loves people and how he heals. And he hears us when we pray. And I just look at those boys and I think man, God is beautiful.”
