The Johnsons

Written by Tyler Johnson

We got married in 2017 and decided to enjoy marriage for a few years before trying to have kids. We always thought having a baby was a switch you could flip on when you were ready. From the time we started trying we had a two year journey through infertility. Kelly had always seen herself as a mom and she went through a prolonged grieving process where every month opened a fresh wound. We were on the waiting list for her to see a specialist in fall 2023 after some recommended medication had not achieved the desired effects. Personally, we were not going to go through IVF and were starting to lose hope. In July of 2023, we found out we were pregnant without any help from doctors or medicine. Levi will be our miracle baby and through it all we learned that we are not in control, and we may not always understand, but God doesn’t make mistakes.

But we completely believe in the God that gave a child to Sarah at age 100 when no one thought it was possible and the God that gave us Levi when there was no good medical reason. You are not alone on your journey and do not give up hope and belief in a big God.

We realize that not every family gets the answer they desire after a season a of waiting. Some families have to try other measures like IVF. Other families go through it all and still don’t get their answer. We may never know on this side of heaven why God gives some couples a tougher journey through infertility. However, we completely believe in the God that gave a child to Sarah at age 100 when no one thought it was possible and the God that gave us Levi when there was no good medical reason. You are not alone on your journey and do not give up hope and belief in a big God. We cannot promise you that you will have biological children, though we pray you do, but we can promise you that God sees you and knows the deepest desires of your heart. He loves you and if He has placed the desire to be parents within you, we believe he will grant that desire in some way even if it is not the time that you thought or the way that you thought. Hold on and keep looking up. God is with you and for you.
