For This Child We Prayed: Living with the Secret Shame of Infertility by Lena Fields-Arnold
The assumption is that if a woman or man cannot have children; it must
not only be God's will, but true evidence of God's wrath in action.

Lena Arnold dispels this horrendous misconception through personal
insight, and reflection. In her struggle to have children, she invites
us to journey with her.
It is a tremendous journey, which takes us
through the heartache of a crying, barren womb to sitting with Hannah in
the scriptures as she bargains with God for a child.to the man at the
pool of Bethesda who experienced the miracle of Christ's healing.to her
own personal thoughts as she writes to her future children like Celie
wrote to Nettie in Alice Walker's book "The Color Purple." Anyone who
has a promise or a dream can benefit from For This Child We Prayed, it
teaches you that faith can help you wait as you believe, no matter how
long it takes.
