The 700 Club

Holding Onto Hope for a Baby

Michelle Wilson - 700 Club Producer

Davida recalls, “I would write in my journal about having a girl, combing her hair, and us dressing alike. I would write about meeting her, what it would be like to have a daughter.”

Davida always wanted to be a mom. At 22, she started journaling about her desires to have a child right before she was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome - a hormonal imbalance that causes infertility.

Davida recalls, “They gave me the details of what it meant for my body and how the chances of me having children would be very slim. It was very discouraging.”

And painful…. Now married to Tyrone, Davida wanted a hysterectomy but Tyrone still hoped to have children of his own.

Tyrone recalls, “She became angry because she said, ‘I'm sick of the pain, I'm sick of dealing with these issues. I want to have this procedure done right now.’ And I said, ‘If you can just give me a little bit of time and just let God work, I believe that he can heal you and we can have children.’”

Tyrone convinced Davida to try to have children. But the odds only got worse. At 26, Davida learned she was in early menopause, and doctors told them any chances of getting pregnant were gone. Even then, Tyrone held on to a hope.

Davida shares, “Tyrone always believed and he always had the faith to push me. My faith was down. I had no more faith because I had dealt with it for so long, and I was fed up.”

At times, the couple went to the baby store to stay focused on the promise of having a child.

Davida says, “I would just browse at nursery beds and look at clothes. It gave me hope to know that one day this will be me.”

The Daniels tried for nine years to conceive but had no success. Then in 2016, the couple were at a hotel when Tyrone met an evangelist in the parking lot who asked if he needed prayer for anything.”

Tyrone says, “I said to him, ‘Well, my wife and I are trying to have a child and she's in the car right now, do you mind praying for her?"’”

Davida recalls, “He prayed for God's will to be done. I remember, he said, ‘Whether a spring, summer, winter or fall, to give us a baby.’”

A month later, Davida went to her ob-gyn doctor after she woke up feeling nauseated. At once, the doctor ordered blood work.

Davida remembers, “The doctor comes in and say, ‘Congratulations!’ And I looked and I said, ‘Congratulations?’ And the doctor said, ‘Well, were you trying to get pregnant, cause you're pregnant?’ And I stopped, ‘I’m what?’ At that time, I was just numb. I was ‘Wow!’”

Unable to grasp what she was told, Davida bought a home pregnancy test…it was positive. At once, she called Tyrone!

Tyrone shares, “I just kept telling the Lord ‘Thank you for honoring your promise. Thank you for not leaving me in that place of despair and hopelessness. Thank you for blessing us with a child.’”

Month’s later, the couple went to the doctor to see their baby for the first time.

Davida shares, “When the lady said it was a girl, I was excited. I was ready to go the store and go shopping right then.”

Tyrone shares, “We would hear the heartbeat, we would see her hands and her feet moving and I would just get so excited, I would say, ‘God thank you so much for this baby girl.’ And it just took me to a place of just joy.”

Then, on June 28th, 2017, Lauryn Denay Helen met her parents.

Davida remembers, “When I first held her I looked at her and I just said, ‘Hi, Lauryn.’ I remember kissing her, holding her in my arms. It was just so amazing to know that something you prayed for for 9 years you're holding it in your arms. it was just beautiful.”

Tyrone remembers, “That was a very special day when I saw her pop up from behind that sheet. I knew that God didn't lie to me. I knew that God didn't forget about me. I knew that she was here for a reason and it was amazing.”

The Daniels have been enjoying every moment with Lauryn, as she celebrated her second birthday!

Davida says, “As I used to journal and write about dressing her up, I love for us to dress alike and to wear the matching dresses, and combing her hair and her looking in the mirror and say, ‘Oh, that's pretty.’”

Tyrone says, “She sings all the time. She likes to run and play. She jumps up in my arms and gives me kisses and gives me hugs and just says, ‘Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy,’ just says it over and over again. All of those things, it just makes me more in love with her each day. You have to trust Him no matter how you feel, no matter what you may be going through, God is able to fulfill his promises.”

Davida says, “The greatest revelation that God has given me is to just hold on. If He promised it, it will happen.”
