Pregnant – Healthy Baby Against All Odds


My name is Stevie and my wife’s name is Marjolaine. We were married in 2011 and were both keen on starting a family fairly quickly.  However, having children doesn’t always happen when you want it to, and there were also certain problems from the past for both of us.

Before Marjolaine became a Christian she had suffered a miscarriage and was told by the doctors that she might not be able to have children afterwards. And in my case a urologist had mentioned years ago that I would probably need surgery to resolve a certain minor problem that can hinder reproduction. However we felt assured that the Lord would bless us with children and never doubted in His promises to do so.

And in spite of those “double odds” being against us, Marjolaine soon fell pregnant and we had a wonderful healthy baby daughter, exactly on the day of our first wedding anniversary!

PSALM 37:4-5 Delight thyself in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
