It has been eight years since Christian singer Natalie Grant first experienced the joys of motherhood. Looking at her now with three beautiful young girls in tow, it is hard to imagine that she was once told that she will never become a mother.
“I’ll never forget the day I was told my husband and I would never be able to conceive children naturally.”
I received a phone call from the doctor delivering the news moments before I was to take the stage at the famed Ryman auditorium in Nashville.
I was sitting in my dressing room when the call came. And though I was about to sing a duet with Wynona Judd, which was a dream come true, in a moment my joy turned to grief.
I’m thankful that was not the end of the story.
Today, by God’s grace, I am a mother to three. My twin daughters are 8 and my youngest daughter is four.
I’m incredibly grateful that we live in a country where I had skilled physicians and amazing advances in medicine that allowed my husband and I to conceive our twins.
I do not believe that faith and science can be separated, so I know that it is only through God, the Divine Giver of Life, that these miraculous medical advancements are even possible.
I am also grateful that sometimes God gives us miracles we never even ask for. My third daughter was a shock and awe baby. No medical intervention, just a God-wink, because she was conceived naturally.
I will never stop thanking God that He allowed me to become a mother.
