Hello. I would like to share my testimony with you. For many years my husband and I wanted to become parents. I am a believer and have been living with a non-believer for many years. For a long time we’ve just been meeting and I kept forgetting about God and my faith. We enjoyed life without God. The time has come when I realised that my life was running out and I wanted to have a baby. My husband couldn’t handle it. Time was running out and I still couldn’t get pregnant. I kept asking myself, where is the problem? We’re both young, healthy, and yet we can’t have a baby. I begged and begged and ran for years and still I couldn’t get pregnant. One day with great pain and anguish I began to pray to God for a miracle. Well, it didn’t work. I started praying the rosary with the prayer community. I have returned to faith and to God. In my family everybody started to pray for the child for us. It wasn’t long before God began to touch me and gradually healed me. I prayed all the time, but it was difficult. My husband didn’t suport me in praying because he is a non-believer. It worried me, but I believed, kept going and prayed without a break. Several times I wanted to give up and stop praying, but I didn’t stop. We tried to see a doctor, but there was no effect. One day while praying the rosary with my family, our Merciful God began to heal my womb and I cried and cried and felt great strenght and emotion. It was such a wonderful feeling that it couldn’t be described. Two months after this prayer I became pregnant and a miracle happened. Pregnancy was the most beautiful period in our lives. I carried the pregnancy to term and gave birth to a healthy son. Throughout my pregnancy I prayed every day for my baby and thanked God and Mary for the miracle in my life. Every day I also prayed for the couples who cannot have children. And I prayed for the spiritual adoption of an unborn child. For the rest of my life I will thank God and Mary that we became parents. That’s why I want to share my own miracle with you, which is a great mercy for us from our Merciful God. God does graces and works miracles in our lives. I am a living proof and I praise God for it. I praise you Lord. Žaneta G (the Czech Republic)
We have been married for the past 6.5 years. From the very beginning we knew with my husband that we wanted to have children, however our efforts to have offspring started 3 years after getting married. I got pregnant for the first time after about 6 months after our efforts, but I knew from the beginning that something was wrong. I lost my pregnancy before my baby’s first heart beat. I had my second pregnancy after following 6 months. The beginning was great, the doctors said that everything was all right. We told our family members, we were of good mind. However, in the 12th week, after the ultrasound it turned out that the heart stopped beating in the 10th week of pregnancy. Shock and great pain. Later, I started to feel pain in the lower abdominal area. I went to private doctorts, however nobody could help me. After all, we decided to take advantage of naprotechnology, the effects of which we heard from a couple who had tried to have offspring for many years. Soon, it turned out that I had infection and I began a long antibiotics treatment. Moreover, it resulted that I had a blood clotting problem, there was also a suspicion of endometriosis. We started to pray with my husband with a Rosary Rose for a miracle of conception. We also took part in a Holy Mass at Matemblewo. First of all, I tried to entrust to the Mother of God, participating also in a 33-day retreat. Withy my husband we also prayed to St. Joseph. However, I had not quite coped with the recent loss. Finally, I went to take part in Ignatian Retreat, where I was able to accept earlier losses. After returning, I began my first Novena of Pompeii for a gift of offspring, however with a different attitude – for the fulfillment of God’s will. This novena had been following me for a long time. At that time I didn’t know that I was already pregnant. My period was late, but then my gynecologist found a cyst on my ovary, so I was sure that was the reason. Despite the fact, on December 19 I did a pregnancy test and it came out positive. On December 20th I had a call that the histopathological results of the fetus from the second pregnancy were ready. We learned then that my body rejected the fetus and I had to have a monthly treatment before getting pregnant. Since I was pregnant already, I had to go to Poznań for the purpose of starting a treatment quickly. The beginning was very difficult. On December 27th BHCG dropped by 5,000. We thought we failed again, although I did not stop praying. On January 3, 2022 during a control ultrasound I learned that the heart is still beating. This was a true miracle to us. A great happiness and appreciation. Unfortunately, the complications did not end, the pregnancy was still at risk. I took a lot of medication and had to lie down a lot. In spite of many unknowns and the fear of what would happen, I felt Mary’s protection. My due date was on August 22, however due to the complications, I was to report for induction of labor. We were set for August 15, however there was probably some kind of mistake and the hospital staff called me on August 13 and thanks to this our daughter was born on August 15, whereas we named her Mary, in honor of Mother of God. Praise the Lord. Honor of Mary. Agnieszka and Piotr
God bless, I would like to share with you a miracle that happened to us. We got married in 2020 and we started trying to have a baby. After 4 months I went to see a gynecologist who informed me about polycystic ovary syndrome and inovulatory cycles. He implemented pills and injections to stimulate ovulation. For following 6 months the ovulation occurred but we could not conceive a baby. The doctor told that the only option left was in vitro. We did the tests with my husband, it turned out that sperm morphology is 0%. Meanwhile, my cycle became disordered because of artificial induction of ovulation and for this reason the doctor ordered to take anticonception pills for the purpose of normalizing the cycle. At this moment I did not agree and stopped visiting the doctor. I waited for 6 months and the cycle normalized on its own. After that time I visited 3 other gynecologists who also told me that I would not be able to become pregnant. After 1.5 years, convinced by my mother I went to see a napro-technologist. He diagnosed me with a Hashimoto, insulin resistance, pcos and thrombophilias. We also began attending to Matemblewo. In October 2021 I started to take medicine (however my husband has not been treated). Every month I went for an ovulation cycle monitoring. On January 8, 2022 during Adoration in Matemblewo, it was for the first time that I felt at peace, that the world will not end and it is possible to adopt a baby (although after 5 years after getting married). However, it is currently possible to take the children out of the orphanage at least for the weekends, vacation etc. A few days after the Adoration I went to an orphanage, volunteering to help the children with their homework or to take them to various trips. Also in January I went to visit a gynecologist and I have a medical documentation that I had a non-ovulatory cycle that month. A different gynecologist confirmed that diagnosis. On January 21 my pregnancy test came out positive. With the help of a napro-technologist, I took many medications including progesterone, estradiol, anticoagulant injections, etc. After 9 months, our awaited baby girl was born. The birth was without complications. Today our angel is already 3 months old and we want to praise the Lord for this miracle. Humanly speaking, it was impossible. However, nothing is impossible for God.
God bless you. Most of the testimonies are written by women, this is why I decided to write such a testimony from the man’s point of view. We tried to conceive our baby not for a long time, that is about 5 years (we can say so today although during our trial period, it seems like an eternity). On one hand it was a very difficult way, and on the other hand, much simpler because we had a word of promise from God, on which we based, something that allowed us to last in expectation for following months and years. During these efforts to conceive and our visits to many cities in Poland I visited 7 andrologists/urologists before I found the proper one, whereas my wife has seen 11 gynecologists. 10 of them tried to convince us that the only solution is IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) and insemination. One of the doctors even said that he was willing to put all of his money on the table, that we will return to him for IVF and that we are unecessarily wasting our time. Whereas, we have never thought about these options because we considered that with God there would be no shortcuts. If we were created by a perfect God in a perfect way, then if the body does not allow the conception to happen, there is a reason for it. Then, the body should be „fixed” and not cheated. Thanks to such approach, we were able to diagnose many disadvantages of our bodies and implement the treatment. God, as our Father, was interested not only in our dreams to come true, but also for us to be healthy. We were both in our early 30s when starting our efforts to conceive. My wife had, among others, two obstructed fallopian tubes, insulin resistance, Hashimoto, food intolerances, endometriosis. It was necessary to have three surgeries, including one which is perfomed only in one city in Poland. Surely, I do not need to add that the only gynecologist who gave us a chance for natural conception was a naprotechnologist. We had a problem with my sperm as well. Even though the doctor said that only one sperm is sufficient to conceive, I felt that at our age, this may not be enough and the semen parameters should be improved, if possible, in order to give ourselves a better chance to conceive. Since there was no pregnancy through all this time and my wife was „repairing” herself, then I also wanted to give the best of myself so this was not only her hardship and struggle. Although the conception happens inside the woman’s body, I have a feeling that men are often treated by the doctors in a low – key manner or they themselves are standing a little aside, waiting for their wives to miraculously get pregant, whereas on their part, there is also a possibility of „improving” their bodies. That is all for medical side. It is time to move on to the most important part, i.e. the faith. We prayed to God each day becuase we believed that He has our biological children for us. Very often it was a prayer through crying, tears and whining with helplessness – both on my wife’s side and mine. What is interesting is that the word patience and pain have the same stem. We practiced our patience by our pain of unfulfillment. The place which helped us to keep our faith was Matemblewo in Gdansk. We tried to go there, whenever it was possible. If we could not be there personally, we participated online on 8th day of each month. I would mention that we learned about this place by accident, however for me accidents do not exist. In Matemblewo we met the same people as us. For the first time we felt comfortable among the people there, although we did not know anybody there. This is because for the first time, we were not different than others, but exactly the same as the people gathered. There (in opposition to our friends), nobody gave us „wise” pieces of advice and tips, something they had no idea about it. Everyone was united through the same pain, hope and expectation. We needed so much such a community of the persons who were trying to conceive. This is because nobody is able to understand the persons who every month, in a way, ‘’die’’ each time, along with the menstruation coming. In Metemblewo I also learned about the possibility to join the Rosary. Then, everyday I prayed for our little baby. Now I pray everyday for other couples, which are still waiting for their babies. It happened that our Anusia was born a month after the next Adoration and Mass in Matemblewo together with an individual blessing with the Blessed Sacrament and after an innovative medical procedure of a last chance, which occured in Warsaw. Whether it was the prayer that helped, the medical procedure, or both, it does not matter. She was conceived at the time she was supposed to be conceived. Amen! Mateusz
My husband and I have been trying for a baby for 3 years. We did a lot of tests, we went to doctors all over Poland. Some gave hope, others cooled the enthusiasm. My results were bad in many aspects, I was taking a lot of drugs and I already felt like a senior and in poor health. In the meantime, we had so- called medically biochemical pregnancies – pregnancy losses at a very early stage. Between visits to the doctors, we did not forget to ask for help and spiritual support. On July 10, 2020, a 9-day prayer of the Association of Marian Helpers began in our intention, at the same time we also entrusted ourselves to Our Lady of Pregnancy from Matemblewo. Regular prayers through the intercession of St. Rita… It seemed that nothing more could be done. Holy Week 2021 has begun. I feel that we no longer have strength and hope. I came to the conclusion that whatever we do, everything is in the Lord’s hands and whatever He decides must happen. On Good Friday I prayed at the Holy Sepulchre, and I no longer asked for a child. I just asked that this Easter would be a new beginning and that what was given to us would happen here and now and we would accept it. Holy Saturday, Sunday and Monday passed. On Tuesday I got a call from the clinic asking if I was confirming the surgery scheduled for Thursday after Christmas. The condition was that menstruation was about to begin. That’s when I realized she should be. I took a pregnancy test and saw two thick lines. I was pregnant. Despite the previous losses, this time I was sure that I would succeed. That for a reason right now. After performing blood tests and calculating how fast the pregnancy hormone beta HCG increases, it turned out that it began to grow on Good Friday. Daughter was born with a birthmark on her forehead, in the place where St. Rita, and whose intercession I have asked for all these years. All elements of our story seem to be of great importance for the miracle that happened to us – our beloved daughter. Katarzyna
God bless. I want to give my testimony as a witness. On November 15, 2019, I asked for a prayer for offspring for my daughter Magdalena and son-in-law Emil. Every 8th month I connected and continue to connect and support married couples asking for children in Matemblewo. On September 28, 2021, my husband and I found out that we would become grandparents, it was the most beautiful day in our lives, immense joy. On May 10, 2022, our beloved granddaughter Michalinka was born. Glory to the Lord and the Holy Mother for answered prayers and care for my grandchildren. God Bless! God Bless!. Grazyna
God bless. I wish to give my testimony. On December 21, 2021, I asked for prayers for children for Anna and Mariusz. On September 27, 2022, twins Magdalena and Mikołaj were born. The babies were born a bit early but everything is fine, we are waiting for them to leave the hospital. Glory to the Lord and the Blessed Mother for answered prayers and taking care of the little ones. God bless you for your prayer. Ursula
My husband and I were trying to get a baby for 4 years, several dozen visits to various doctors, a lot of humiliating, various examinations and nothing else. I was taking it very badly mentally, I was starting to get bitter and I didn’t like my life, my husband always said that it would be fine and that without the baby we would be happy too, but I didn’t believe it … . For four years I was looking for the cause of failure, I found that I would do everything to make it succeed. Of course, infertility doctors had already proposed invitro, which my husband and I wanted to avoid. At work, I made friends with a girl who used to be in the Catholic community, we started talking about the faith that I had lost a bit in recent years. My dear friend prayed for me. She told me about the Pompeian Novena, I tried to say it, I am stubborn, and despite the initial difficulties in starting the Novena, I was able to say the whole thing. When the doctors offered us invitro, because I had very few ova (which made me even more stressed), I kept looking for the cause of my failure and found an article on Natural Killers on the Internet – these are cells that every human has to fight cancer in the first place, but how you have too many of them in your blood and they kill the embryos. To flush some of them out of your body you need to take an Intralipid drip and we did it! In addition, I had the pai factor which makes implantation of the embryo difficult. Knowing that I have very few eggs, after a happy birth and the end of breastfeeding, I did the test and it turned out that I had more eggs than before, which is not possible, but still! In the meantime, I was praying two more novena every day crying with happiness. We wanted a second baby right away and were able to get pregnant again with no problem! All is well. I recommend everyone to love God and Mary, because they are perfect they gave us a perfect son, then a daughter, writing this I cry with happines.
On May 6th, our third longed-for baby daughter, Karolinka Maria, was born. This is our third child. We have our first daughter, Juleczka, in Heaven. Our second daughter, Faustina, our longed-for gift, is growing healthy and on November 7 she will be 3 years old. Therefore, we wanted very much VERY STRONG THANK YOU ALL FOR SUPPORT IN PRAYER Beloved, Merciful, Most Dear Most Magnificent God, heard the prayer and gave us wonderful children. GOD IS WONDERFUL! Beloved, remember us in our prayers, we also remember about you in our daily prayers. Best regards, Joanna and Piotr
My name is Andrzej and this is my wife Ewa. We would like to experience with you our experience of the grace of God’s offspring. It will be some very personal thoughts. In September this year, we had the 19th anniversary of our marriage. Our daughter Dominika turned 3 months ago. How can you count on 18 years of marriage, the Lord has given us offspring. Although we’ve been trying to get them for about 15 years. And, perversely, I think we needed to mature to become an adult. Those years, it was a struggle for me to deal with emotions when we met friends with children. Was it a time to run away into solitude, a time to ask God if he had forgotten us? Time to lose hope. It was also difficult for me to agree that we do not have children. There was a lot of rebellion in me and such earnestly asking God for children. Such stubbornness in this request. It was many years, but most of all, but most importantly, it was the treatment that ended 7 years ago, we adopted it in the later years in which we reached, and we also had more years and children. At that time, I was going to ask God for joy in the life they gave me, without children, about the fact that I have no children, about agreeing that I do not have children, for accepting that there are no children once. I would like to add that we have already turned 40, so we would have to download it, that we are without children, but now we receive the Lord’s prayer for and I am more and more ready to say that “if there is our Will”. I will say because of this time this time, just such maturation in faith God gave, which touches, such data gave to keep, e.g.a soothing experience of silence, the beauty of nature, music, going skiing, cycling, mountains, traveling and many, many moments with our nephews and godchildren, when we could taste parenthood, taking care of them, accepting their love and giving them ours. The year 2021, despite external circumstances, just like we all experienced covid, turned out to be a year of grace for us, in which we managed to visit Mary Częstochowa twice, we went south and went one way and the other. Additionally, Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński and Róża Czacka were blessed. The beatification mass was a special time for me to ask for a miracle. I have always had words in the back of my head that the time of beatification is a time of special grace. And during this Mass, I also asked for intercession for us, and I believe that Cardinal Wyszyński helped us. As for Róża Czacka, I would like to add that I was very touched by the fact that despite the fact that she lost her eyesight and later lost it, she had joy and was happy to help others, so I also asked for such joy in our not having offspring. On November 8, here in Matemblewo, during our prayer meeting, Fr. Andrzej said: “I am asking you to touch those people who lost hope, who, by waiting for the desirable offspring, fell into depression, emotional difficulties, I am asking you to touch all these marriages with your healing.” there is no hope in me. On November 10, 2021, two days later, my wife did the test and there were two lines. I thought it’s not possible, the test is probably out of date. Many thoughts were still running through my mind then, but I remember that I also cried. And they were tears of joy. As you can see, I am a very sensitive person, I worry about many things. During my pregnancy, God said to me many times, “Andrzej, trust me! I look after you. ” When I found out that I was pregnant, I enjoyed it very much today, now without looking into the future, what will happen and after giving birth, after she was bornour daughter, I can see that God has given us grace despite the enormous medicine that was in us. Which we may have even realized later and our obvious weaknesses. Many times I entrusted this matter to God saying “Jesus, take care of it!”. In our difficulties, we asked for the intercession of the saints. I had such saints of mine that I asked for and that really strengthened us on our way. Yes, maybe in short, because it could be said for a long time, but we are glad that God has given us children. Praise God! Two more thoughts from me, what I want to share, is that God was also present through pregnancy through our deceased relatives who recently passed away, such priest Kazimierz Kubacki, who gave us the wedding, and our close person Agata, who just died in 2021 . We also felt their support. And I would like to add that our parish priest Andrzej from Matemblewo, because we are parishioners, has not lost hope and I think that his Faith and prayer as well as the prayers of many other people, because we also experienced this, we just found out during pregnancy how many people also prayed for us, whom in We did not know at all that these prayers were answered, so also were people with rosary roses. And our parish priest often repeats. It is up to Mary to have the last sentence. Praise the Lord!
God bless. I promised myself and God, so I would like to share with you the testimony of how God made us parents once again. I gave birth to my first son in 2011. I had no problems getting pregnant. He is a very sensitive, beloved young boy who really wanted to have siblings.When a child appeared among family or friends, he would always ask us when he would have a brother or sister. We started our efforts for another offspring about 7 years ago. At the beginning, I ran to the pharmacy every now and then for a pregnancy test, hoping that it was definitely successful this time. Unfortunately, weeks, months, and then years passed, and still nothing … until 2018. February – we were supposed to go on vacation then, my period was late, so I did the test, 2 lines came out, joy mixed with fear and anxiety. On the day of going on vacation, I wanted to make sure with the doctor that it was true, unfortunately I left the office crying because the doctor did not find anything on the ultrasound and said it was an ectopic pregnancy. Tests, subsequent visits to another doctor, unfortunately in the 6th week, it turned out that the fetus was there, but the heart was not beating. The doctor said that only prayer and a miracle were left, unfortunately … I had a miscarriage. Despair … More months passed, more efforts. When our son asked about siblings, we explained to him that we would like to, but that we cannot always have and must be prepared for it. He claimed to understand. In 2020, my husband began to feel very bad, in June we received terrible news – type 1 diabetes, hospital stay, insulin, stinging several times a day. The chances of having another child decreased. We both came to the conclusion that it is difficult, if God wants, we will have children, if not, then this is His Will. I remember when I asked my husband that maybe we would adopt a child, his reaction pleased me very much because he asked if I really thought about it, that he also thought about it. We decided to give ourselves one more year. 2021 has come and, like every year, I went to the gynecologist for a checkup. I remember that during the ultrasound I was soaked with the thought that maybe soon your gynecologist would tell me that I was pregnant, but nothing like that happened, the doctor said that I was in the ovulation cycle. After researching and listening to my story, she decided that my husband and I needed research. She commissioned me to start with 14 different hormonal tests. I returned home and decided that I would not go for tests right away, but I would give myself a month and it turned out that my period was late again, I did the test – I showed my husband 2 beautiful clear lines, he was disbelieving, he bought another and another 2 clear lines, he said that he would believe visiting a doctor. When I was on the visit, I immediately heard my heartbeat … from the very beginning, however, I had such an inner peace of mind that everything would be fine, that I should not worry, God assured me at every step that I should be calm that I would give birth … The date was set for December 26 … the child was positioned in the buttocks, tried to rotate but unfortunately to no avail, the emperor was appointed on December 17. On December 8, on the day of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, I felt sick, I got a CTG for examination at 11:30, and at 12:00 at the Hour of Grace I started praying the Rosary, I was in the hospital and my mother was in the car waiting for me, I was lying for an hour hooked up to the CTG and on the ultrasound it turned out that the baby was there, according to the doctors it would be impossible. I know a miracle has happened. The holidays passed quietly, God had His plan and on my mother’s birthday, January 2, 2022, our second son came quickly and happily into the world. Lord God, I thank You for everything You have done for us. Małgorzata
I wanted to share my testimony. We have tried for a child for a long time, we have been married for almost seven years. No medical examinations or results have given a definite answer as to what the cause was not to conceive a baby. Children were born all over the place and I suffered more and more every month, even though it seemed to me that I had accepted that I would not be a mother. And a year ago, I accidentally had to stay home longer (accident at work). It was then that I heard about the prayer in the Rosary about Our Lady of Matemblewo and about the miracles that work there. I signed up for the Rose and participated in the online prayer every month. Half a year has passed, only half a year in a patient prayer and a miracle happened, which today is 14 days old. It is a healthy, beautiful girl and is a prayed-for and a longed-for child. I believed until the end and my faith helped me. Faith and prayer work miracles, you just have to believe it. I will pray for all couples who are struggling with the problem of infertility. Aldona
Hello, I would like to share my testimony with you, thank God and my beloved Mother and the intercession of All Saints – our son has been with us for seven months. It all started in 2020, where on 27/12/ 20 I saw a wonderful second line on the test. My first visit to the doctor showed something amazing: two wonderful hearts! I started to think about the future how it would, it was a huge happiness- two treasures. The second visit did not last long, very quiet and the tears in the eyes of the doctor saying “the heart did not beat”. It is indescribable what was inside me … the worst two weeks. Waiting at home for a spontaneous abortion recommended by a doctor … The feeling that you have for your beloved two dead hearts in your belly and all the time a little hope that they would start beating. It did not happen, the hospital began surgery. Immediately after the operation complications arose when I wanted to return to work I got a haemorrhage. Again to hospital. Histopathological diagnosis results. Image of the initial phase of the angular moles … Immediately the doctor explained to me that it was the stage of pregnancy cancer. The world collapsed, measuring bthcg every week checking whether it was decreasing or normalizing, begging God for life . Beta decreased, after half a year I stopped examining but a fierce struggle for my psyche started, total chaos in my head, hormones, fear of other diseases, going to doctors all the time other ailments, various prayers, novena, lying cross and praying . Here it got worse and worse, so almost a year has passed in October. I went with my husband and mother to Częstochowa, there we gave ourselves to our beloved Mother of God. In November I went to a therapist, total dedication to God – I repeated myself every day I was all God’s, they were good months full of life, hope and joy. In March 2021 the 2-line test !!! BLESS THE LORD, I knew then that this time I would succeed because it would be as God wanted it to be, moreover, I did not think about a miscarriage. I was thinking about the new life in me. The pregnancy was going wonderfully, the baby was healthy, the delivery was approaching planned for December 4-7. November 4 I had a visit where everything was going super- little 2600 weighed everything well. After the visit my husband went shopping, I stayed when suddenly I saw water with a huge amount of blood. I was saying ” Jesus, you take care of it, please, I trust you with all my heart”. I went quickly to the hospital for the examination. I felt my little son’s movements and I spoke to God,” if you want him for yourself, let it be done, but if it is possible, I beg for his life”. I heard a heartbeat, there was a pulse, quickly in a wheelchair, straight to the Caesarean section. Our Beloved Miracle Emilek appeared in 9 minutes. The doctors said that if we were not close to the hospital then it would be too late for my son and me. Our premature baby was brave and strong, despite his temporary stay in the ward. I was allowed to see him only 1h a day, they were hard three days. After 8 days we returned home and thanks God and our Beloved Mother, our life was filled with love of our little Emilek who today is 7 months old. GLORY TO THE LORD
We got married with the intention of enlarging the family. Nothing happened for six months. In May, I went to the doctor. He examined the cysts and said that it would not be easy to get pregnant. After some time I went again but in a private visit, it turned out that it was not the cysts, but the lack of ovulation, which made it impossible for me to get pregnant. 3-month treatment with drugs for ovarian patency, then drugs for ovulation. In October it was successful – two lines on the test. Unearthly joy and prayers. The whole pregnancy was carried out perfectly- little Franek grew up in my belly until the 38th week. On June 17 in the morning my stomach was hard, I went to the doctor quickly. The heart did not beat. I thought I was dreaming. I couldn’t believe it. In the hospital it was confirmed that the little one was dead, the heart was not beating. I had to give birth naturally on June 18. Breakdown, postpartum depression lasted two weeks. The worst thing when a mother has to watch a child being put in a grave in an elegant white coffin – it was not meant to be like that … I recovered. Check-up by a doctor after 6 weeks. He ordered to wait for pregnancy up to 3 months after giving birth. It was successful 2.5 months after. Two dashes. Prayers. Masses for God’s blessing for the whole family. The head of the hospital was in charge of the pregnancy. We were happy when the baby was kicking, and we measured the heart’s beating with the detector. When something was worrying, he referred me to a specialist hospital for checkups. From 35th week of KTG every three days. In 37th week, the pressure at night jumped to 140 /100 quickly, and the hospital there was diagnosed with gestational hypertension. One week in hospital and at week 38th on 13th our little girl LENKA was born. We thank God with all our hearts for giving us children and we can rejoice every day of our consolation. Such a tiny miracle is rewarding for everything. It is worth fighting and not breaking down
I wanted to share our testimony: Both my husband and I have been trying for a child since 2018. I got pregnant quite quickly, but unfortunately in 8th week during the visit I found out that the baby’s heart does not beat. It shocked us, but we did not break down, I did not stop praying. I got pregnant again, but the story ended the same, in 10th week. I felt a lot of regret, sadness, but I knew that Jesus is next to us, He supports us and He just has His own plans for us. We really wanted to find out why these miscarriages were happening and implement the treatment. While waiting for an appointment with specialists, God decided otherwise. I found a wonderful confessor who told me that I should trust God with all my heart in this matter. It just happened. I didn’t go to see the doctor, where two lines appeared on the test. I felt a great peace in my heart, I trusted the Lord completely. In the meantime, I learned about the Sunday service at Our Lady of Pregnancy in Gdańsk Matemblewo, where I entrusted this little Baby to Her. Throughout my pregnancy, we went to these services every Sunday. I know that God uses people, the doctor with whom I treated my pregnancies immediately chose the correct medicines. The night before giving birth, I dreamed of St. Padre Pio, so that on September 23 ( the day of his memory) our little miracle Leon was born. I believe that he will be his patron throughout his life.

We have been trying to get a second child for almost 5 years. All the tests were fine so we asked Mary for Her intercession in the Pompeian Novena. A year ago, in May, we prayed for the enlargement of our family. We wanted a sibling for our older son. In June I was participating for the first time in the prayer for children in Matemblewo. It was online transmission. In the second meeting personalny, during a prayer, I heard the words of the priest saying “There is a woman with us, who does not know yet that she is expecting a baby”. I thought that the next couple would be happy to have a child, although in my heart, I believed that it could be me. Then 4 days later it turned out that I was pregnant ! We are still grateful to God for the grace that He sent us. The older son
(7 years old) loves his little brother, who will be 4 months on July 12,very much. We are so grateful to God for our family and I believe that in a moment another couple will be happy to enlarge the family. God bless you for the prayers in that intention.
My story is drawn like this: in 2019 I started praying the Pompeian Novena, for the gift of children. After 4 weeks it turned out that I had become pregnant after many attempts. In 5th week I had a miscarriage, then the attempts to have the pregnancy went out. I went to the doctors and they said that it would be ok, but 3 years and nothing. Finally, a year ago I came to Poland on vacation and went to the clinic for tests with my husband and myself, the doctor said that I had polycystic ovaries. We waited for the husband’s tests … It turned out that the husband had a negligible amount of sperm, possibility to have offsprings -only invitro. We went back to Poland with my husband, another holiday, I prayed the Pompeian Novena and every 8th day of the month I tried to be in prayer. We went to Białka Tatrzańska, it was ugly weather, I thought that we would go to the trampolines, my husband, skeptical about the weather, said he wanted to stay in. I was a bit angry so he agreed to go out. The road led us to the Holy Mother in Ludźmierz, I knelt in front of the painting and asked for the gift of a child. I looked at Mother and saw a smile, I heard “be calm” inside. At the end of August, we returned to Germany, where we live, I did the test, 2 lines came out … I was afraid, I went to the doctor who said that I conceived on August 15! On April 26, our daughter Anastasia Maria was born for the Glory of the Lord and Mary. I am praying for you for the gift of children. Lukrecja
God bless, I want to share with you the testimony of the miracle which happened in our life thanks to Our Lady and St. Joseph. We have been married for almost 8 years. 1.5 years after the wedding, I was diagnosed with my genetic disease, suddenly I became ill due to the severity of the disease,. I had to have an experimental treatment, which had the opposite effect than expected. The disease began to get worse, leading also to psychological disorders . After a few years, it began to withdraw, so we came back to our dreams – the desire of the awaited child. In March 2020, it was necessary to check the possibility to be a mother. I also started the spirital adoption in March, which I finished on December 24 of the same year. Due to the covid, the visit to the doctor was moved to July. What we heard was so shocking, full of hope! It was for first first time to hear we had a chance for a child! We could slowly start trying for the baby, being under the doctor’s care!All the time, however, we were afraid that the disease might come back, due to the withdrawal of certain medications, and our dream of having a child would once again fall into ruin. The efforts were prolonged. One day, while sitting in front of the image of the Mother of God, tears began to fall from me and there was such a great desire – I started the Pompeian Novena, asking Her to conceive a child, if it was God’s will . At the moment of the Novena, “by accident” I came across the PRAYER FOR THE OFFSPRINGS. Experiencing every Adoration and Holy Mass, I was filled with peace, hope and faith that God takes care of everything and He would give us this gift! I also finished the prayer on December 24. A few days after the end of my talking to God, shedding tears, I got the word opening the Book of 1 Samuel, it was a fragment titled “A Child Asked From God”. It was clear to me – I remained with the Lord, trusting Him.
My offspring history is very difficult. Immediately after the wedding, my husband and I decided that we wanted offspring, we succeeded quickly, already in the first cycle of efforts. What a joy it was! Each ultrasound was a huge happiness, after the examination in 20th week we started to complete the baby’s items … unfortunately the second prenatal examination in 24th week: our daughter was dead, it was not known what happened … the child was born dead. What I experienced was such a shock for me that I did not believe it was really happening. Cry, despair, tears, but also hope … the doctors said that sometimes it happened and that we had to keep on fighting. Half a year after the death of the little one, I managed to get another pregnancy … fear, distancing … everything was fine until 23rd week … blood pressure, proteinuria, gestosis … together with my husband again we had to say goodbye to our next little miracle. I lost faith and hope … I blamed God for allowing this neglect, I also blamed myself for not staying longer in the hospital … I had to be treated psychiatrically.When I got better, we made another effort … unfortunately the biochemical pregnancy left us … we were still struggling … after some time we were pregnant for the 4th time … fear, helplessness paralyzed us every day … unfortunately from 17th week another fight for a little daughter … we travelled all over Poland to save her, but the doctors did not give a chance … at one point I said, “Lord, let your will be done, if our little baby is happier with you, let it be like that” our little daughter passed away at night after these words. Another dead born child at 24th week. After this death, I did not have the strength to be alive, but the only thing that changed was that I came closer to God. There was a lot of prayers, I prayed mainly that I would have the strength to just live, because at one point I had thoughts of suicide, I couldn’t cope with it. I prayed often and very earnestly, while praying I often heard a voice in my head, so that I would not give up, that I would have soon a child. It gave me strength, my husband and I started looking for doctors, help … we succeeded. After immunological treatment,there was another pregnancy -the 5th, but miscarried in 9th .. the doctors explained to us that I had a problem with correct placement of the placenta, I prayed constantly, 2 months after the last miscarriage, another pregnancy. I gave this pregnancy completely to God and the Holy Mother … now 28th of pregnancy in which miracles happen. At the beginning, the doctors did not give a chance, because the child was developing too slowly, the tests were performed every week, but at some point the little one made up for more than 2 weeks in 1 week, the doctors did not believe their eyes.Due to the fact that I had a problem with the flows in the uterine arteries, the doctors were skeptical about us. However, I prayed every day, I trust in the Lord. At the last visit, we agreed that the child would be born after the 1st May weekend. My son weighs over 1 kg. This pregnancy is a miracle, no doubt. I believe that at the beginning of May our life changes and that God will reward us for everything. You can’t give up. We should believe and trust, and the Lord knows what is the best for us. Milena
We came to the Sanctuary in Matemblewo a bit by accident. Wasn’t it the action of the Holy Spirit? We live in Warsaw, but we have a family in Gdańsk, so we come here several times a year. For the first time, we the chance to visit the Sanctuary when we became Godparents to our cousin’s chid. We were charmed by the place. In this way the Sanctuary started to be the main point during our visiting Gdańsk. We have been a married couple with almost four years of experience. During this time, we experienced four losses. During the treatment at the naprotechnologist ward, we came to the Sancturary and, traditionally, we went to the statue of Our Lady praying that “it would be nice to come here next year with a pram” and become not only godparents but just parents. A few days after making the test, my wife found out she was pregnant. Praying through the intercession of Our Lady in Matemblewo, we waited for the next medical tests. As with each month of pregnancy, the other results made sure everything was fine. Our son was born in January. For us it is a Miracle, long awaited, prayed for. Thanks be to God and Mary!
Praise The Lord! For some time I have wanted to share my testimony of God’s help and Mary’s protection in my life. I met my husband while praying the Pompeian Novena for a “good husband”. We got married in June 2019.Three months later I got pregnant for the first time. At the end of November 2019, I had to say goodbye to my unborn child, who I named Anielka. Exactly 3 months after my loss, I went to hospital ward with an ovarian cyst. Before the surgery, I begged the doctors that I could still have children. The operation “succeeded”, however the doctor explained he had to cut out the ovary (I was told that a few weeks later). At the beginning of January 2020, I joined The Rosary Rose and persisted in prayer, I also prayed the new Pompeian Novena. In the meantime, I had a treatment by the method of naprotechnology with a wonderful doctor and, moreover I met an amazing exorcist priest, who deepened my faith. During the treatment, I got pregnant for the second time, but after a while I had to say goodbye to my child again. I asked Holy Mary to show me my unborn children. Not long after I had a dream in which I saw a laughing girl and a younger boy. I knew they were my babies – they were saved and they were in Heaven with God. I named the second unborn child Tomasz. I was praying by online broadcasts of Holy Mass from Matemblewo. When death marches began in Poland (women for abortion), I also prayed for these women. I did not know then that a new life was developing under my heart. I did the pregnancy test on December 8 and I already knew that Holy Mary took the child under Her protection. During the difficult pregnancy (I was taking a lot of medicines to support the life of the child), I anointed the child with St. Charbel’s oil, I prayed for a good birth to St. Loyola. On August 18, 2021, I gave birth to a daughter – Maria. Today I know that nothing is impossible for God. I thank Him for everything we received from Him
Soon in the world, on May 8, on the feast of Our Lady of Pompeii, our daughter Maria will appear in the world. The history of this pregnancy and efforts from the very beginning is very difficult and you could say that it was a miracle … this testimony can be divided into three parts what has happened from the beginning of the efforts, but I will focus on what is it now If it weren’t for prayer and our faith, I don’t know if I would be carrying Mary under my heart now. Everything indicated that the cycle would be unsuccessful. Negative test, and on the following day, menstruation for 7 days. Bleeding again in a week. I called my doctor, who deals with naprotechnology, and he ordered me to come to the appointment right away, because maybe some cyst burst, since pregnancy was not possible as the menstruation ended a week ago. I arrived and after a while he said that there was a baby in the very corner of the uterus. We were both surprised .. because how did this pregnancy survived such long and heavy bleeding? The heart wasn’t beating yet, but he said everything looked fine. He sent me for observation to the hospital to see if the baby was actually developing properly. But there were doubts as to whether life was still there. The bleeding continued but my faith that this baby would grow beautifully, I went to the hospital, where I spent a week. I came to the ward, where immediately my pregnancy was crossed off. He said that when it was bleeding, it was for sure nothing …” that if it is like this until tomorrow, he will take me for cleaning not to infect my body by the dead baby … I was terribly afraid. But all the time, despite my fear, I believed that this baby would be alive. I have already started another Pompeian Novena. The next day the bleeding stopped a bit. But the doctor kept saying that there was nothing to wait for .. good that he was not to make decisions, because he would probably take me to the operation theatre right away. The head physician made the decision, but the greatest decision was made by God.The pregnancy result went down … which always looks like a miscarriage. But on the 4th day in the hospital, the doctor who wanted to clean me saw a beating heart. His surprise was great, and each time when he examined me, I only mentally prayed to Holy Mary . They let us go home. Unfortunately, the bleeding appeared constantly and constantly … so strong that I just said on the way to the hospital “let Your will be done”. In the Novena, I started to pray that the bleeding would finally stop, because I could not stand it anymore. It stopped in a while. In addition, it turned out that there were to be twins and hence the decrease in the pregnancy hormone and these bleeding, as the second pregnancy wanted to get out. But with such profuse bleeding, the doctor said it was a miracle .. that it was not possible that Marysia was alive and we still could hear her heart. Thanks to prayer, the bad time is over. Our hearts are full of gratitude for what we have gone through, that we had the strength to bear it and that Maria is a healthy girl under my heart. I know one thing for sure. It is worth fighting to the very end, not giving up in prayer despite the difficulties and adversities. You will found out that at the end there is a reward, the only and unique one made out of Love. Life is a gift and it depends only on God.
A year ago, I found out that I was pregnant. We had tried for the first pregnancy for a long time, for the second one even longer. A year ago, in January, I came across the Prayer for Offspring on Facebook and I stayed here, prayed for a second child. Then for a happy delivery and health for us, now I pray for other couples. Franciszek is 4 months old today. My friends laughed that I was so organized that I wrote the exact date of my childbirth in my calendar. Well, I just knew that my baby would be born on the 8th of the month ! Praise the Lord!
12 years of efforts, 8 losses around the 9th week … All during the visits to the best specialists … We finally knew that the problem was immunology, but the therapies also did not bring any effect … In March 2020, I joined the Rosary Rose .. In July it turned out that I was pregnant again, I was asking everybody for prayer … I mostly felt fear, but when in the 10th week on the ultrasound the doctor said that the pregnancy was going well and the baby was alive, I knew that it was a miracle for us and it is still a miracle … I wish all of you longing for a child such miracles in the New Year.
We would like to share with you the history and the miracle that happened in my life. From the very beginning of our marriage, we wanted to enlarge our family. Unfortunately, as time was passing by we were told that being a mum and a dad was not possible in our case. The following years passed, all of our friends had children, I could see pregnancies of other women and feel the pain that we could not experience this joy. Hundreds of kilometres travelled, many, many, tons of drugs, months of hard work on diets and prayers without any results. We prayed to the Saints, begging for help. Silence. Just two of us me and my husband desiring for a baby. Earlier this year, following very invasive naprotechnology terms, I came across an article that featured Saint Joseph and the 30-day Novenna to His Honour..It was said:”when everything fails and even the Pompeian Novenna does not help – turn to Saint Joseph because He will find the way if it is GOD’s will”. I found that I was not losing anything and from February 1 to March 3, I conscientiously prayed the Novenna. Something changed during that time, I didn’t feel any tense , just inexplicable peace. My husband and I decided on the adoption procedure. On March 3, which is the last day of the Novenna, I got my period and for the first time I did not cry that I had failed again. I did not know that the menstruation begins the cycle in which, I got pregnant. Due to the fact that I kept a protechnological fashion card, the conception took place on March 19, on the feast of Saint Joseph. Success on my results was unbelievable for my doctors. The entire pregnancy was not book-like. I had a hematoma and I had to lie down. In 28th week I started to feel baby movements less. I went to the hospital in Siedlce. The diagnosis knocked us off our feet. Severe hypotrophy and poor flows. Every day in my belly mattered for the baby. I was taken to the hospital in Bielany in Warsaw. Daily ktg and ultrasound. Fight for each day for our child. It was only possible to survive the pregnancy for over a week. On Wednesday (Wednesday is the day of the week dedicated to Saint Joseph), on October 6th, 29th week + 6, Józio Staś was born with a weight of only 750g. The fight for his life and health began. A prayer was stormed to heaven for our family . We begged for prayer all the convents of Saint Joseph. We thanked for every breath of Józio, for every millilitre of milk drunk and ingested by the intestines, for every gram of weight gain, for the moment of disconnecting from the probe, for leaving the incubator and for returning home. We spent 2 months in the hospital. Almost every important event in Józio’s life took place on Wednesday, which is the day dedicated to Saint Joseph. Currently, Józio is very well, weighs over 2 kg, is already at home with us and is a real proof that nothing is impossible for God and that Saint Joseph gives more than we ask for. With this testimony, we thank you Saint Joseph.
Praised be Jesus Christ! After 3 years of trying for a second baby, examinations, treatment with naprotechnology methods, many prayers, shortly after entrusting our family to the Mother of God, we were blessed with grace and I got a longed-for and awaited pregnancy. Unfortunately, in the 14th week of pregnancy, the baby died, and the cause has not been found. I found myself in the hospital on Ash Wednesday, and the time of Lent was the most difficult for us in our entire life. We had the “way of the cross”, together with Our Lady and Jesus. We gave this suffering to God as His mystery. The only way to survive was to pray and try to live in such a way as to please God. The Resurrection of the Lord on Easter Sunday was hope for us. On May 1, during the May service, the priest said that this month you can ask for many favours. On May 2, I had a dream about the Risen Lord Jesus, I saw Him like in the picture:” Jesus, I trust in You”, He was floating over the green spring forest and said: “You will be heard”. Next week we went with our 6-year-old daughter to Holy Mary. I felt that after these difficult events I had to go there, just like a child comes to his mother’s house when he wants to talk about difficult matters. We ordered a Holy Mass with the intention of conceiving a child and the happy time of the pregnancy and termination – it turned out that the first available date would be May 13. I strongly believed that the date of the apparitions in Fatima and the attack on the beloved John Paul II, when the Mother of God was leading the bullet, was not accidental and perhaps the Mother of God will also lead our case. Two months earlier, in March, when I was experiencing these very difficult moments, with a pencil, I marked a fragment of the Holy Bible about the bush and the vine that gave me a light of hope I should abide in Christ. During our Mass, just this fragment was read on May 13. Soon after, I dreamed of John Paul II, praying the Rosary for us, and I felt warm; I woke up for a moment. Dreams were very unusual for me because I had never had such dreams before. On May 26, Mother’s Day, I assumed that conception had taken place. It happened about two weeks earlier, that is, exactly on May 13. The tears of emotion appeared when it turned out that the Lord of God had consoled us. We persevered in prayer, thanked every day for the favours received and tried to follow the paths leading to the Lord. We have entrusted our prayers to the intercession of the Saints. We went to Holy Mary to thank and ask for Her care . On February 9, 2021, our son was happily born. We want to thank for the gifts we have received with all our lives, we trust in the intercession of the Mother of God and we praise the majesty of our Lord.
God bless + I wanted to write so many times and I think it is the perfect time. We are with my husband 2.5 years after the wedding. We’ve been trying to have a baby for about two years. It was hard: crying, constant examinations and visits to more and more doctors. A lot of common prayer and often inner regret on my part and a feeling of emptiness in myself. I dreamed about these two magic lines on the pregnancy test, and unfortunately there was no such thing … Continuous examinations, diseases and weaker hope for offspring. Under the pillow I had an envelope with prayers for the intercession of many Saints. We joined the Rosary Rose, I took up the Pompeian Novena (the evil one mixed up a lot and it was a really hard time in life and work, but we managed to finish the novena), we were in Częstochowa and many holy places asking for the gift of children. In March, I undertook the Novena to St. Joseph. Internally, I was quiet, but at the thought of the upcoming holidays, I felt sad that it would be another “empty” holiday for us. My husband has always supported me and was a friend who made me happy. Evening prayer together and various trials that happened to us also strengthened our marriage. In April, I was supposed to have a procedure combined with a biopsy at the clinic. I did not arrive for the procedure, as it turned out, under my heart, there was already a tiny Being .We were accompanied by great joy combined with disbelief and fear for the Little Baby, but we gave everything into the hands of our Heavenly Mother. Earlier, my mother undertook a spiritual adoption praying for a child in danger. it turned out that her “little daughter” was to come into the world after my whole pregnancy was difficult and I had to lie down for a long time. I was in the hospital because the delivery began too early, but the doctors stopped this birth in order to my baby could sit in her mummy’s tummy for a while. Zuzanna was born on December 13, 2021.
My name is Danusia. My husband and I started trying to have a baby 6 years ago. It was a difficult time for us, especially for me. We took it easy at first. After a year of fruitless efforts, we came to the infertility clinic, we saw 2 doctors who initially stimulated me with pills. I had a problem with ovulation and I had Hashimoto’s. My husband’s results were good. Despite the stimulation of pregnancy, it was not. We quit. We found a naprotechnologist. The doctor said I had insulin resistance in addition to Hashimoto’s and PCOS. All of this together made it difficult to get pregnant. We spent over 2 years with him, with no result. During this time, my mental state worsened and I lost contact with my husband. His quick reaction was to find a good psychiatrist who led me to normal life. However, we didn’t give up, although I was getting tired of it . Over 6 years of our life has revolved around doctors. In 2020 my dad passed away unexpectedly. It was a shock to me. I don’t know how to describe it, but I decided that I want to start living and enjoy life. As I decided, I did so. I stopped thinking about getting pregnant, and my husband and I even mentioned adoption. I was not stimulated by anything. The doctor I visited for the last time gave us a 2-3% chance of getting pregnant naturally, he suggested in vitro. And then, on March 23, 2021, I did a pregnancy test. When I saw 2 lines, I was completely shocked . My husband believed it after the doctor confirmed the pregnancy During our efforts we went to Matemblewo, we went on pilgrimages. I prayed the Pompeian Novena for this intention. Nothing is impossible for God and Holy Mary. On November 25, 2021 our son Jakub Piotr was born. Our little”Big Miracle”
Praise the Lord! I have always dreamed that one day I would also perform with my testimony. I know how important are encouragement words for married couples who try for a child, because I read myself the testimonies without losing my hope. My husband and I went through a lot of sorrows, including the loss of our child and the period of not hoping for another baby. We also struggled with health problems that made it difficult to get pregnant. Doctors gave us little chance of success. We entrusted God, we were online with Matemblewo every month, we asked the community and the sisters for prayer support. Soon after, we saw two lines on the test. We were full of joy but also fear because of the fist loss. I went to hospital to maintain the pregnancy because there could be early delivery . We did not give up, we felt in our heart that since so many people supported us and “storm Heaven” in our intention that this time we would see a successful conclusion. On September 30, our long-awaited and prayed-for wonder, Dominik, was born. It worked and our requests were answered. We wholeheartedly support all couples trying to conceive, we remember about you in our prayers. God has a plan for each of us
I am writing this testimony with great joy in my heart, after our prayers and an awaited miracle! Long before the wedding, my husband and I knew that our path to parenthood would be difficult, yet, we did not think that it would be so hard. 2 years before the wedding (after 5 years of continuous visits to various doctors due to constant abdominal and spine pain), a doctor in Warsaw (our guardian angel who accompanies us till this day) stated that I had endometriosis. It was difficult to diagnose the disease due to the fact that we decided to live without sexual contact until the wedding, so for obvious reasons, the research was difficult. The doctor prescribed hormones which task was to stop the disease and he suggested an operation that was to be just after the wedding. Unfortunately, due to random reasons, it was shifted and took place in September 2017. The operation was difficult, I had infiltrates on the spinal cord, the entire left ovary was stuck to it, and it was additionally stuck to the intestine. There was a great risk of bowel damage from the procedure, but thank God and the prayers everything went according to the plan. How lucky we were when I saw two lines on the test in December. Of course, all the examinations at once,leave from work (I teach at school and in the educational and revalidation centre, so I had to go on sick leave to avoid possible infections), everything was book-like. Amazing feeling when I heard our baby’s heart for the first time. I waited impatiently for each visit, especially the one after 4 th month (then the worst was supposed to pass).Unfortunately, during the control in the fourth month, the doctor stated that our baby’s heart had stopped beating. At first I was shocked, I didn’t understand what I had just heard. When I was leaving the surgery, I saw my husband, who with horror in his eyes asked if everything was okay. We cried all the way home. Our treasure left us, it was still inside me but it was already dead. I felt like a living coffin. I was to go to the hospital, but they kept saying there were no places so I went there for another week, knowing that I had our dead child inside me. In the hospital, they tried to induce a miscarriage . Eventually it ended with a curettage treatment. After all, I felt okay, I wanted to go home, the doctors said “it happens you can try again”. Unfortunately, after a month I applied for the histopathological result, which was written for partial mycosis. The doctor only said that I should be tested every week to see if the hcg was dropping and sent me home. In the meantime, we wanted to take our baby and bury it. However, it was too early to test its sex and we had to do genetic tests. A terrible time, full of uncertainty and sadness. We buried our beloved Zosia close to us, we visited her every day. We talked to her, while feeling like some of us were gone forever. Unfortunately, for a year we had to wait with our efforts, the hcg was not falling as it should. I had to do an x-ray of the lungs and a head CT scan to exclude metastases. The doctor said he would give me two more examines if for oncology. We started praying even more, and thanks to Holy Mary, the results began to decline. After a year of fruitless efforts, we started looking for the cause. Insulin resistance and PCOS. Another disease began. Diet drugs, exercises. Chemicals for ovulation induction, injections for bubble bursting. Finally, after six months, a positive test. I couldn’t believe my eyes, we wanted a baby so much, but I was afraid of every day. Of course, we were constantly praying to Our Lady of Matemblewo all the time. First with a request for the gift of offspring, then for care for him.It was last May. I began to pray the Pompeian Novena in the instance of our buckthorn. Unfortunately, after 6 weeks, severe abdominal pain, bleeding. I felt that we were losing the baby again. We went to an appointment where the doctor said I had a miscarriage. Another blow straight to the heart. I didn’t even feel it was there. The second time it was too much. We prayed even more and more. I felt regret, sadness and emptiness. I wanted to stop praying, but my husband gave me strength. We started looking for the cause. Genetic testing revealed hereditary thrombophilia. Still reciting the novena which had begun earlier. We started taking care of each other, we spent a lot of time together. I stopped taking all my medications and obsessing over fertile days. We started living just like that. We walked in the mountains (my husband and I love mountain hiking). Imagine the surprise when on the day of the end of the novena I did the test and it came out positive. We went through our entire pregnancy with a breath hold. From the beginning, heparin injections and blood thinners. Each visit was filled with joy together with fear. From the beginning, however, I entrusted the pregnancy to Holy Mary in 100%. I was already tired of this constant stress and the fight to make it good. We entrusted Holy Mary and from the beginning to the end of my pregnancy I prayed the Pompeian novena (I did 5 in total). It is amazing that the end of the Novena fell on the day of childbirth.Holy Mary gave us incredible strength and peace in our hearts. Our daughter Antonina knows very well who looked after her during the whole pregnancy and from the very beginning she folds her hands as we say Amen in prayer. Every day we give thanks in the Rosary for this miracle and a huge gift and for the fact that our daughter is healthy (the birth was hard). We met wonderful people who were sent from God Himself throughout our pregnancy, we have no doubts about it. I am writing this testimony especially for all those who are already losing hope, that they should NEVER give up in the struggle for parenthood God is good and his Mother has the strength and power to ask for miracles for us Praise the Lord!
I would like to share my little testimony. About 1.5 years ago I asked you to pray for me and my husband. I was then in the hospital with pathology of pregnancy, where for the second time in my life I had an induced miscarriage. The reason was the same: pregnancy without an embryo. We did researches and treatments but nothing worked. I decided to pray the Pompeian Novena once again and ask Mary for help. I finished the Novena on May 28, and on May 26, I got my last menstruation. About 2 weeks later, I was attending Holy Mass, but I was very distracted, not listening to the readings, and my thoughts were wandering. Suddenly, I was torn from my thoughts by a fragment of the Holy Scriptures “at this time in a year you will caress your son”. It really happened, my little son is now almost 5 months old. He is healthy, polite, cheerful, I am extremely grateful to Holy Mary for helping me once again. I also thank you for your prayers and I will also remember you in mine. Joanna
On February 3, I became the mother of Hubert’s son after several years of hope and expectation. I would just like to briefly write that any therapy, treatment can only work if you open your door to God and let Him come into your heart. Listen to the Voice of the Lord with prayer and silence – MIRACLES happen. Now I have this MIRACLE on my laps, over 4 kilograms of happiness! Once I read testimonies and tears were in my eyes, sometimes there was no hope anymore, and today I look at my son and I think it is like a dream … TRUST THE LORD !! Even when it is hard, never stop praying, never let the Rosary go out of your hands !!!
Hello everyone. I would like to share with you the Testimony I experienced. I would like to raise hope in many couples trying to conceive. I have been praying for my grandchildren for 7 years. There were many problems, the pregnancy was at risk, and the child’s health was at risk. We never stopped praying. For the last 2-3 years, everyone in the Prayer for Offspring group has been praying. After so many years, God heard our prayers. A healthy baby boy was born, and in a month’s time a healthy baby girl was born. I express great gratitude to God for these children, Our Lady of Perpetual Help. I once read that the Lord Jesus said from the Cross to people who prayed to His Wounds, “why don’t you go to the Mother?” From that time on, I began to pray the Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, which I know from my youth. I have received an ocean of Graces. I want to express my Great Gratitude for my healthy grandchildren. Remember: Never stop praying, never get discouraged, as Pope John Paul II said:” God is great! Let him be glorified!”. Alicja
I would like to share my testimony and, at the same time, publicly thank you who are praying for our intention. We have been married for almost six years. During this time, we tried to have a child for five years. During these five years we have been to 16 gynecologists, because every next one said pregnancy was not possible for me. They feared my hemorrhagic diathesis. Now I can see it in retrospect. I also met a few who showed us a different method, and that was in vitro (we did not want it), and, moreover the doctors said if there was a disabled child, it was the best to abort him (contrary to our beliefs, because we were open to every life – in addition, I work alone with disabled children!) I couldn’t imagine that we could kill such a child so we did not have any more visits to these doctors. I underwent three hysterioscopes, including a traumatic one, where I was placed with a mother who was miscarrying a baby … during the second hysterioscopy it was found out that I had cervical cancer Fortunately at such an early stage it was removed without chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Then I found a gynecologist oncologist who referred me to his friend. Only through the hands of this doctor God gave us the grace of parenthood. It turned out that there were 32 polyps in my uterus that made it impossible to get pregnant. I had the surgery in May, and the day before St. Nicola’s feast I was pregnant, and in August I gave birth to a wonderful son. In addition, I had a dreamt delivery (one hour twenty minutes), with oxytocin drips (because my son was in no hurry to enter the world), and with drips with blood medications. The unbearable pain was not as bad as everyone told me it would be! I didn’t have a paid private midwife but it was in the ordinary district hospital. I met there doctors, midwives and staff who really deserve to be called the greatest on Earth! They sais there wasn’t such a short delivery in this hospital and what was their surprise when I told that I and my relatives prayed for such a birth, I got it from God.I also had a very mild puerperium, until I myself did not believe that it could be like that. And the son is perfect as we prayed with you! Our marriage was completed with happiness in the form of a new life! We thank you, and we wish those who read this testimony that the grace of God will touch them too and they will experience the miracle of a child in their lives! Magdalena
My name is Ania. 3 years ago I married a wonderful man. We both wanted children. The difference was that I wanted to do it as soon as possible, and my husband wanted to build a house first. I went to the gynecologist regularly. The doctor said I had too much testosterone and he prescribed hormones for me. During every period, I was depressed. I was crying. Each month, I hoped God would give us a baby. The beautiful time has come when we both said “yes” to God. One cycle and nothing. Second – nothing too. In mid-June, I was at the gynecologist’s ultrasound. It bothered me that I was staining in the last days of the cycle. The gynecologist said it might be a polyp. I began to say a novena to untie the knots, asking for healing from the polyp. There was no change in the next cycle. On June 29, 2020, I joined the RosaryRose praying for children – I knew that our beloved Mother and Jesus would not refuse anything. I told my relatives that we could not conceive a child and asked for prayer. Our grandmothers, mothers, aunts, cousins prayed for us! I was lying with a Rosary in my hand, looking at a picture of Our Lady and I was crying while praying the Rosary. At that time, my soul was healed. I worshiped God in our infertility. I didn’t get pregnant in August and I wasn’t embittered about it. While Reading at the Holy Mass, I was touched by the words: “in a year you will caress your son”. One night I dreamed of Holy Mary. All I could see was the outline of her head. A white veil, a blue robe. I couldn’t see the face. An amazing glow emanated from her. Her voice was beautiful, I felt her love, compassion, that she wanted to calm me down. She said to me: “you will give birth in June”. I heard the voice of Mary in my mind: “leave it to me”, “leave it for me, I will take care of it”. September was approaching and I was calm. My husband took me to a weekend trip, in the car I read a notification that the rose of those praying for offspring invites me to deepen contact with Mary in Mary’s School. In mid-September I got sick. The first test showed nothing. I decided to buy the second one. I woke up around 2 am on Saturday, September 19, 2020. I felt the whole Heaven above me: “go do this test.” I prayed the Rosary. I did the test at 3 am and saw 2 lines. I almost fainted. The due date was May 26. The end of May is almost June … I want to say that you do not have to be seriously infertile to experience the frustration of not having a dream child. In fact,we physically tried for 4 months but mentally I experienced infertility for 2 years. I encourage you to pray earnestly and change your whole life. Let your treatment be guided by Mary, let her lead you to doctors, but, first of all, to the best doctor in the world, to our God. Nothing is impossible for Him. I am still in prayer, thanking for our Michał and asking for you, dear ones, that you could enjoy your beloved children. You have to believe that it will be so and let God act. Praise God in your infertility, that He may change your life. Greetings Ania
Hello again, before I say goodbye to you, I feel obligated to write a testimony. A story began 8 years ago when I failed to get pregnant. A long time ago, “far”from God, I began to pray for the gift of children. I asked God with the mediation of John Paul II in this request. I was heard and 7 years ago my son was born. Immediately the transformation started and setting the steps closer and closer to Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ. Then the son was ill. I prayed for his fitness and health. In addition, specialists came at home. The result was a good recover and today my son is a very wise boy and he has no inclinations . After that it was very difficult to have the second child. However, in 2017 it turned out that I was pregnant. The husband was not thrilled and I was scared. After 11 weeks, I had a miscarriage. I was discouraged by my husband that it affected us a lot. I drank alcohol, sipped every day – two glasses of wine or beer. It lasted until January 1, 2019 when I was told during confession that I was addicted to this problem, I decided to say a novena to Our Lady undoing the knots for healing from alcoholism. Since then, I don’t drink alcohol. I had my third pregnancy which also ended in a miscarriage after 8 weeks. I got pregnant for the fourth time and after a few days I had a miscarriage. My husband and I underwent genetic tests, which showed in that I had thrombophilia and that I should take medication in order to control my pregnancy. I started with the Rosary on March 8, 2020. gathered in a rosary prayer as a Rose of the Rosary. On March 19, 2020, in the daily memoirs of St. Joseph – the pregnancy test showed 2 lines. The next day I was already taking heparin injections until I gave birth to my child November 16, 2020 -Polish day of Our Lady of Mercy. I wish all married couples who are seeking children the grace they are asking for. Let Our Lady of Mercy be praised in all her songs. God Blessed…
Hi. Reading your testimonies, I can see how important it is for God to pray for one another. Although we may not even know each other and we are asking for favors for someone, or maybe because we do it selflessly – God works so many miracles! I would like to make my contribution and share with you the testimony of God’s action in our family. For as long as I can remember I had very irregular cycles, sometimes only 2 in a half a year. 7 years ago doctors diagnosed me with PCOS, implementing treatment and giving me little chance of getting pregnant. Back then, I didn’t think about starting a family, and the thought didn’t scare me that much. Everything changed when I met my husband and when he proposed to me. Everywhere I saw happy mothers with children, even my younger sister gave birth to a baby girl. The prospect of being married and having no children hit me hard. I remember many days of tears and difficult conversations looking far into the future, considering various options, including adoption. Even though God had shown me tangibly many times that He was with me – I doubted. Fortunately, my then-future husband was full of hope and faith that nothing was impossible for God. And his love and support helped me to trust and be led. After the wedding, I went to another doctor, who ordered another series of tests and gave a referral to the hospital. At the same time, my friend Fr. Capuchin offered me a 3-month preparation for the act of surrender to Mary according to the treatise by Louis de Montfort and I started reading your testimonies on the Prayer for Offspring page. We had been praying for a long time with my husband for offspring for our friends who had been trying for a child for 3 years and we were mentally ready to wait longer .. but it happened otherwise. On December 8, I gave myself into the captivity of Holy Mary, and at the beginning of the year after the feast of Saint Family , my husband insisted that I take the test because he had a feeling. Although I was not convinced, I did and, to my surprise, it turned out that I Was pregnant and the deadline was on September 8 . Our little big miracle! Then there was a literal avalanche of blessings, because thanks to God’s providence and the kindness of our friends, we managed to buy our own house despite the restrictions and covid. Moreover, our friends for whom we prayed , shared the wonderful news that they also expected a child. The pregnancy proceeded without any major problems until the third trimester, when the huge hypertension, which, despite the medications, did not go away, suddenly appeared and did not want to go away. So I lay at the end of my pregnancy in the hospital, but on September 10, our little baby was born, though not so small – all 4110g of Little Love. A month later my friend gave also birth to a baby. And today Zuzanna Maria is 5 months old and she teaches us every day how to love and believe more. I wish you Courage and perseverance , I believe that our common prayer does not remain silent to God.
We have been married since 2011. After two years, I got pregnant without any problems and our son was born through caesarean section. My husband and I really wanted our son to have siblings. After a year of trying, I heard a diagnosis – secondary infertility. The hospital stay only confirmed this diagnosis. I was qualified for a fallopian tube obstruction procedure. In the meantime, we started going to Matemblewo to pray, asking Our Lady for help. We participated in Holy Masses and services asking for the gift of children. Many times I could not bring out a word of prayer, but I cried in front of the Mother of God, asking with tears like a mother -to mother. On May 5, my husband and I learned that we would be parents. A week later a medical visit confirmed that I was pregnant. I remember that the doctor cried with me in the office because it was a miracle and she could not explain how it happened because it was impossible to do with medical work. After the medical visit, we went to Matemblewo to thank Our Lady of Matemblewo for this miracle. For us it was just a miracle asked at the sanctuary of Our Lady of Matemblewo. Our son is called Hubert. For us, his life proves that prayer has great strength.
I would like to share my testimony. We tried to get offspring for about 3 years. I know some may say it is not long but for me it was a difficult time From the very beginning, the doctors did not give us much chance. I was diagnosed with endometriosis. Some series of medications, and operations were ineffective. Every month, crying and not understanding. Anger at God and asking why? Though I knew He was with me from the very beginning. Being in the church at Mass, I drew a quote from the Holy Scriptures saying that I would have the desired offspring. However, months passed and there was no pregnancy. All the time I felt that the Lord was close. When I was losing hope, I got a word of comfort, either from the Scriptures or from the people I met. It was really a lot, the Lord showed me that my prayers would be answered, but at the best moment for me. A year ago, during a medical visit, I heard a terrible diagnosis. Suspicion of a polyp, hydrocele of the fallopian tube, one ovary with the uterus, the other fused. There was no end to the crying. I decided to go to a healing Mass in my parish. People who prayed over me told me to go to some Marian Sanctuary. I knew immediately that it would be Matemblewo. I went with my husband to the next Mass. It was a wonderful time. Already driving there I felt calm, and when we returned I knew that everything would be fine. Before the miraculous statue of Mary, I gave her my problems. At the same time, I was praying the rosary for children at risk of abortion. What was my surprise when, while reading the meditation, I read that “today God’s promise to you will be fulfilled.” And guess what? After two weeks, I found out that I was pregnant. A month earlier, the doctor gave me no chance. It is all thanks to Mary, I know that it was She who obtained this grace for us. Hugging my son every evening, I thank Mary and God for this blessing, although sometimes I still cannot believe that we are parents and how good God is. He loves us all, He tests us through the cross, but it always has meaning. I had to give God this decision because He knows best, He is the best doctor. Praise the Lord.
I and my husband would like to share our testimony with you. In 2015, we started our marriage and since then we have been trying to have a child, but we have not been able to enjoy the grace of parenthood. After a year of trying, we went to the doctor to check what was wrong and so the months passed and… nothing. The visits followed, we changed the doctor, believing that the next one would tell us something else, but we heard that only in vitro could help us. Of course, my husband and I did not agree to such solution. We entrusted everything to the Holy Mother and God, the whole family prayed for our intention, but we understood that it was our cross to bear and we accepted it. In January this year I came across the facebook “prayer for offspring” and sent a message asking for a prayer in our intention hoping it would be successful. But I must admit that I forgot about it very quickly until March. Then it turned out that the Lord in His grace bestowed on us the grace of conception of a child. The whole pregnancy was book-like and our daughter Maria was born on November 4 – it was 5 years after our wedding. Praise the Lord! Thank you for praying in our intention.
Hi, my name is Izabela. In 2016 I got married. A year later, we started trying to have offspring. After several months of unsuccessful attempts, we went to the doctor and started to take medicines. In 2018, I attended a Holy Mass with a prayer for healing and I received the word from God that He would give me offspring. Time passed and I was still waiting for the longed-for baby. In 2019 we went with my husband to Matemblewo . We went to a Holy Mass wishing to get offspring. In the beginning, the Lord said that there was a person present there who had already received My Word and He wouldn’t change it. On June 29, 2019, I attended a Holy Mass in our parish in Warsaw, where we had got married, asking for the offspring for us. A few days later, it turned out that I was pregnant. Of course I was treated by medical care together with a special diet. On March 10, 2020, a girl named Róża was born. It turned out that in some moment of my pregnancy Róża had a cyst . But at the same time God also took care of my baby and her operation successed. Thank God Róża is a healthy and a beautiful girl and I’m a happy mom.
When I met my fiancé, we knew immediately that we wanted to be together. We had the same priorities and the dream of a big family. We were very happy together and we planned the wedding quickly. Our happiness did not last long, my beloved father fell ill with cancer. It was a terrible time. I felt strong pains. Sometimes I was literally “doubled over in pain.” I knew something was going on, but I was afraid to check. Maybe that’s why I felt that it was the time that I wanted to have my little child. We started trying to have a baby. For several months it was unsuccessful and my pains grew worse. I decided to find good doctors. I couldn’t wait, the following months brought failures and crying. I failed to deal with another tragedy. Plus Dad’s disease. I asked the Mother of God for help, I have never prayed like this before. She didn’t make me wait long. I also read the information about the Sanctuary. With your support, I believed that everything would succeed. Unfortunately, my father’s condition suddenly worsened and I lost him. A month after his death,I was desperated. My dad was a very good man of strong faith. He had always kneeled in front of the image of Our Lady in a daily prayer every evening. He had suffered many illnesses in his life, but despite this well-being, he had never missed any Holy Mass. I think it’s not a coincidence that I got pregnant a month after he died. He has already taken care of us . I entrusted my entire pregnancy to Our Lady. I felt Her constant care and love. I know that faith and sincere prayer can work miracles. Your happy mother of Michał Józef
I went to one of the adorations at Matemblewo as an assistance person. That day I placed in the hands of Holy Mary the intention of my friends and the marriage of my brother. At the end of the next month, my brother and his wife told us that they were expecting another baby. It was a great joy for everyone. Unfortunately, after a month there were complications. My sister-in-law was taken to the hospital, where she found out that a hematoma had grown around the baby. Her body was trying to get rid of the baby as a normal protection action of the organism. I immediately sent a message asking for prayer, especially to the priest and those people responsible for prayer on the 8th day of the month. The storm to Heaven started. In the meantime, my sister-in-law left the hospital and waited for another visit to the doctor as a sentence. We all waited, but we trusted that good God, through the intercession of Our Lady, would work a miracle. At that time, another adoration of Jesus for married couples took place … And a miracle happened! My brother-in-law, who had an appointment with a doctor two days later, found out that the hematoma was gone and the baby was still alive! The baby was born a few months later safe and sound! God is great in His works! Almighty and Merciful! Praise the Lord!
We have been with my husband for over 5 years after getting married. We really wanted to create a full family. It was possible to get pregnant for the first time quickly. Unfortunately, happiness did not last long. We lost the baby early in pregnancy. It was not so easy to get pregnant for the second time. We prayed fervently for a baby. We were often in Matemblewo, where we continued our prayer. We also turned to specialists. And when the adoration in Matemblewo began, we attended it. After the first adoration, it turned out that I was pregnant. However, it did not proceed properly. In December, when we went to adoration, a miscarriage began. We were desperate, but at the same time full of hope that it would get better. Then I heard a promise that in a year we would enjoy the baby. It also happened. On December 6, our son, Tobias, was born, our treasure, a gift from God. Prayer has tremendous power.
I will start with the fact that I have been struggling with the problem of infertility for 12 years. I was very offended at God why he cannot give me the longed-for child. Over the next years I got pregnant several times but unfortunately I lost them … 9 of my angels went to Heaven … So I asked God why? I prayed, went on pilgrimages and… nothing. In the end, the pregnancy was sustained by medical means and I gave birth to a baby girl. Of course, my insult passed, and I immediately ran to church to thank God for a happy childbirth and a healthy baby. One and a half year later, I quite unexpectedly found out that I was pregnant again. Shocking. Twin pregnancy. Could God reward me for all these years and failures? The pregnancy was difficult, I had to stay in hospital. Despite complications of haemorrhage and hematoma, the children stayed in their mother’s womb up to 32nd week and were born through CC : a boy and a girl! On the second day after childbirth I felt very bad … A doctor came to me and said that the children were healthy, but unfortunately I had sepsis and that they had to give me blood transfusions. The risk was if the blood was not accepted, I would die because the results were very bad. The doctor went away and I saw a cross on the wall. I heard the words “not yet” … “Fight!” … I saw everything behind the fog, only the Lord Jesus on the cross was very clear. I started praying with the last of my strength. I survived because He gave me strength and the will to fight-He helped me to get out of it. Today I am a mother of three healthy children and I thank God that I have them and that I am alive. Apparently, I had to go through these hardships and have what I have, so I appreciate it even more …. Thank you Lord God ….
My husband and I started trying to have a baby right after the wedding. I was convinced that we would manage to get pregnant quickly because my siblings did not have the slightest problem with this. Months passed and there was no pregnancy. It began: despair, shame, resentment for God why me? I started checking everything until I became obsessed. Every month, when the fertile days were approaching, I went crazy. I was looking for everything to confirm or just convince myself that there is no ovulation, that something is wrong. My husband was fed up with my talking. He was more pessimistic about it. And I was falling into an emotional depression. I did pregnancy tests before the period, hoping they would be positive. I couldn’t give it a miss … I was looking for more and more diseases in myself and in my husband. One day, after almost a year of efforts, my period was late – I did not let the news that it was pregnancy. I took the pregnancy test and it turned out positive. We lived in England, and there, it’s not possible to go and confirm the pregnancy immediately. I couldn’t believe it and something was bothering me … Being on vacation in Poland, I saw a beating heart for the first time. It was the very beginning of the pregnancy. I couldn’t believe it … I had dark thoughts because I was thinking all the time that I would lose my baby. Being at the next visit less than a week later, the doctor ended it with the words: ”unfortunately the heart does not beat”. My entire world fell apart. On the same day I went to the hospital and the next day there was an operation. A few days later, we buried the little heart in the cemetery. I spent the whole vacation in Poland at home. My husband was abroad. I had to pretend to my parents that everything was ok. I blamed myself. I couldn’t cope with it. After the surgery, I had to wait 3 months to try to be pregnant. At least, then I mentally rested. I returned to England to my husband .. Later we moved, we took the cat from the shelter so that we could keep our head occupied … I kept asking whoever I could for prayer. Also your community. Month after month went by and I only thought about one thing. Once I trusted, once I doubted … I went to see a doctor in Poland because I was staining. The doctor told me to wait until my period and do some tests. I did the test. It turned out positive. I couldn’t believe everything was ok. I kept making up something instead of being happy. The first visit to the gynecologist was spontaneous. Beta had risen again. The doctor said that she couldn’t see anything and that it was too early. However, after changing positions, she asked about twins in my family. During the examination, the doctor confirmed 2 bubbles. A week later, at the appointment, the doctor told about a haematoma that was near 1 baby and threatened that it might drag them with it when the haematoma evaporated. I saw 2 hearts beating for the first time. I changed a doctor. The whole pregnancy went very well despite my panic and dark thoughts. I was always close to God and I entrusted myself constantly in Him. I entrusteus. I prayed and asked others to do so. I had a moment of doubt. However, God allowed him to persevere. Our miracles came into the world in the 36th month of my pregnancy. A little daughter and a little son. They will be 1.5 year old, in April. And I can’t stop enjoying them. I thank God for them every day. They are a dream come true for me. I wish everyone their dream will come true. I am praying for you, beloved, that you would also experience this miracle from God. God is great. I cannot express my joy. I believe that you will also succeed. Praised be Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord
My name is Krzysztof and I would like to share my testimony with you. We have heard many testimonies here, many of them are testimonies of faith, testimonies of inner transformation, testimonies of conversion, of entrustment to God. This testimony will be a bit different … It will be a story about a miracle, a miracle that happened here in this special place, but let’s start from the beginning … We have known each other with my wife Ania for many, many years … In our life we put off many things for later … , work, career, you know how it is … When we got married 6 years ago, we immediately decided that it was time to have a baby. We figured it out that now it’s the time, we’re not so young anymore, it’s the best moment now, but it didn’t work that way… It’s been six months, a year, another year and a few years more and nothing. We decided that it was time to visit specialists. I will not describe our long road, many years of various doctors because my story would not be enough to tell in one day. Besides, I am fully aware that it was a path similar to that of many of you- the path filled with pain, sacrifice, and a great deal of disappointment. Despite the diagnosis, we continued the treatment, but we were fully aware that without God, nothing could work. That is why we asked for prayer, we went to church every Sunday, waiting for a miracle … Years passed, every holiday, every celebration: birthday, nameday – everyone wished us only this one, the child who was to become the meaning of our life. Exactly 5 years have passed since our wedding. I was already 40, Ania was a bit younger so we were already aware that we had little time, that maybe it’s time to let go, maybe we needed to give up. In fact, we decided that it would be the last year of our fight. And we just let it go. Our close friends, who had always supported us, invited us to various services several times, but we refused. You know they were on a higher level of faith, they belonged to the community, they had this gift of trust that I did not know, which I wanted and looked for but I still had not received it.Besides, it seemed to me that I was asking, I was praying, I went to church, my family also asked for us … It was enough. I lived according to the Commandments … So why? Why couldn’t I have this baby? the Lord God! I know so many people who do not pay attention to faith, do not go to church, do not pray, and they have children, and they do not even appreciate the great gift they have received. Where is Your justice, the Lord God? This is not fair! How is it? With such regret, doubt and resignation, we got here to Matemblewo. Let me tell you honestly that I don’t even remember how it happened that we came here for the first meeting on the 8th day. The first thing that struck us was such a detail, a trifle, the parish priest waited for us at the entrance, welcomed us in an absolutely cordial way and invited us to the church. It was also the first element, a little detail that showed us that this place was something different, unusual. You know the parish priest, people who have never experienced it in their parishes. Matemblewo has become such an extremely important place for us, thanks to the priests and the atmosphere that prevails here. We went to the service every month on the 8th day of the month, every Sunday we went to church here, but despite these signs and openness, I still had such bitterness, doubt and discouragement. Because you know how it was … At some point a person had no more strength. Exactly a year ago, on December 8th, to be exact, I didn’t really feel like coming here. I was after work, tired, I figured it would probably not change anything anymore. My wife, Ania, had more enthusiasm and if it hadn’t been for her, I probably wouldn’t have come here anymore. As every month, I joined this prayer. As in each of these services, there was a word of knowledge, a word that we did not fully understand. And there were many words for many couples trying to have a child and so on… Which word could go to any of us. With all my attitude, I didn’t pay much attention to it and at one point I heard the sentence: “marriage of Krzysztof and Joanna or Anna” well, that’s a shot right here! Oh… such a concrete thing. I suddenly woke up. “Krzysztof has dark hair, he is wearing a dark jacket, he is wearing jeans today. The Lord Jesus wants to tell them today that in exactly one year’s time at the same time they will be holding their child in their hands. ” Well, that’s a specific promise. I thought” how many Krzysztofs with Ania can be here … ” There was a doubt in my head .. er .. it’s not about us, my pants were not jeans … When I got home, I took off my pants and on the label I saw the words JEANS SPORT . I thought to myself, well, it was such a concrete that it was difficult to argue. Honestly, I was a bit afraid that if this word did not come true, what would happen with my faith? The promise was fulfilled! Francis was born on October 15. Today is December 8 and we are holding our baby in our hands, exactly as it was said. Exactly one year after the Lord made the promise to us. Listen, apart from a healthy child, we got something more, we got the gift of faith that I missed. Could I, a painfully doubting rationalist, somehow question this miracle? Look, if Ania had just become pregnant at that time and happily terminated it, we would have probably thought: “ we worked it out, we treated ourselves for so many years, we used various therapies and we succeeded” … But when the Lord calls you by name, He describes your appearance, makes such a promise in time, declares it through the mouth of a priest,… there is no way to doubt… Why did it happen this way? Why did the Lord want to act this way? I asked myself such a question … And the answer is that in order to give a chance to displace this miracle – especially to such a doubter as me. And the second reason, in order to give hope to all those who cannot, as in my case, just trust. Our testimony is our duty today. And I’ll tell you one more thing , I don’t know how it is, how it works, but Matemblewo is amazing. I do not know why a prayer works so effectively here, but it is just like that and I know that with a sincere heart, and with pure pain, with doubt or with regret to God, please come with all this here… Today, Fr Andrzej said that it’s all about getting closer to God, and it looks like this is one of the best places to get closer to God. I sincerely believe that you have to be here, wait for a word that will come to you as it came to us in such an unusual, specific way. The Lord knew that I had needed it. Praise the Lord!
We’ve been trying to have a baby for four years. Doctors said that we were healthy that it had to take time. We’ve heard everywhere: take it easy, relax, take your time … Then we came across a doctor who knew that time was not the problem after all. The doctor diagnosed obstruction of the fallopian tubes. He said there was no way to open them. We heard that our chances of getting pregnant were slim and it was like that from the beginning. I felt it was over … Then I remembered that I had heard about a certain prayer. I began to pray the Pompeian Novena. For 54 days I prayed four parts of the Rosary, asking for the gift of children. I finished my prayer in March. In June it turned out that I was pregnant. Why am I talking about it in public? After all, pregnancy is such a delicate matter that I could keep it to myself. I’m telling about it because at the end of the prayer it was clearly written that if my request is answered, I am to announce it to everyone. When I read it, I swore I would. As it turned out later, I finished the prayer on March 19, 2018, and my Borysek was born on March 19, 2019. Apparently, finishing the prayer, God said:”Next year you will see your child!” This is what I think … The Pompeian Novena also accompanied me throughout my pregnancy. Every day I asked for health for my baby. And so it happened … And now I pray again, because when Borysek was 8 months old, it turned out that I was pregnant again. And again I am begging the Blessed Virgin for intercession, that my second child would also be born healthy. The one who believes there is no need for explanation. For those who do not believe, it is impossible to explain. Because up to a certain point the treatment can help, then only God can make a miracle. Daria
After fighting infertility and miscarriage, we received the gift of offspring … The first child conceived quite quickly – after 6 months of efforts. It appeared after the prayer of the Pompeian Novena. During the prayer full of tears, on the last day of the Novena at the Shrine of Our Lady, I heard an assurance that a child would appear in a month’s time and that I should thank for it. It happened. Huge joy. Unfortunately it passed quickly. After 9 weeks, I had a miscarriage. It is difficult to understand why this happened. Doctors said it was common with the first baby and no tests were needed. Howeve, everything indicated that my fertility was not correct . My doctors were not able to start treatment, so I signed up for a naprotechnologist. Further diagnoses indicated further irregularities, and we initiated treatment. We also joined the parents’ community in church after losing our first child . At that time, there were other pregnancies, births, baptisms, big birthday parties at our friends’ homes … In our case- a second miscarriage. It was incredibly hard for me. We were looking for help by participating in various services, praying Novenas … We also attended Masses with a prayer for healing, and a month later we received an individual blessing at the Mass for childless couples in Wąwolnica. There we heard a promise: next year we would come here to thank. I wanted to believe it, but there were times when I completely doubted it. Throughout my efforts, God was fighting for me, keeping me sustained in many crises. Our baby was very likely conceived on the anniversary of the miscarriage, and was happily born so that next year we could go to the statue of Our Lady to give thanks. The entire pregnancy, despite many diseases and treatments, went smoothly. I know that we received our baby from God, especially thanks to the intercession of the Mother of God, that is why we named our daughter Maria – in Her honor and glory. Kamila
I would like to share with you my testimony. We are with my husband, a young married couple, even though we are 33 years old. Immediately after the wedding, we wanted to have a baby. In the end, after the visit to the gynecologist, it turned out that I was pregnant but the ultrasound showed nothing (it was supposed to be up to 7th week). The gynecologist informed me that it was a very early miscarriage or that the pregnancy was still very young. She commissioned me more tests and examinations. A hormone level that signified pregnancy grew in an appropriate way. Pregnancy error lodged in the appendix (that is, between the ovary and the fallopian tube). Diagnosis – ectopic pregnancy, referring to immediate operatin in hospital to remove it my life was in danger. I asked God for a miracle. I also informed my loved ones and asked them for prayers … was the miracle !!! In order to introduce the ultrasound (approximately 2 hours later), the vesicular appeared in the right place !!! At that moment, I felt a great grace. The next day a friend called me and asked about the result of the prayers. I told her about the miracle that my child was transported to the uterus by God. I believed it strongly. And at that moment, I felt an intense warm below. As if someone put aHis hand on my womb. For God, nothing is impossible !!!!
Beloved Friends, I would like to share with you the testimony of grace and miracle that I received from God through the intercession of the Blessed Mother. I am a mother of two boys. For a long time I had carried in my heart the desire to have another child – a daughter. For a long time I asked God to bless us with a child. I have always dreamed of a large family. I wanted a bunch of kids running around the house. A few years ago my only brother died, the desire to have a large family intensified. In the meantime, God put a great endocrinologist on my way, who took care of me professionally and properly prepared me for pregnancy. Despite many adversities, such as hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s disease – it was only very soon. In January I came across a transmission of adoration with a prayer for healing for married couples asking for offspring. During the online broadcast, there were words of knowledge that (…) there is a woman who has been asking for a daughter for a long time. The Lord will give her to you (…). Something touched me, I felt tears running down my cheeks. I knew God was speaking to me. Some time later it turned out that I was pregnant. Fear and disbelief, and at the same time great joy and gratitude for this miracle. The pregnancy was quite problematic … During the prenatal tests it was confirmed that I had a baby girl under my heart. The little one was born a month ahead of schedule with the weight … ATTENTION !!! 3930g of happiness and love. The delivery went well, quickly and without complications. I felt God’s protection at that time and these were the most wonderful moments for me. They called her “big premature baby”. She was the largest child on the ward even among full-term babies. Martynka was born on Holy Mary’s Feast – it could not be otherwise! From the very beginning, Mummy took care of us and interceded with us. I cannot express my gratitude and emotion and I still cannot believe it that at the beginning of 2019 I asked for a child – for my dream daughter – and at the end of the year I hold her in my arms, … Tears run down my cheek and I thank God and Holy Mary. My testimony is also an appeal to other married couples trying to conceive a child. Please never lose faith, never give up and fight to the very end … God heals and works miracles. You just need to trust the Father like a child and devote yourself completely to Him. Aneta
My name is Marlena. I was supposed to come here with my husband, but unfortunately he had to leave, but today I am with my 4-month-old son, Kubuś. Kubuś is a great gift from God … I prayed very much … When we got married , it was obvious that we would have children …Then I found out I couldn’t have children- I was really shocked! Months passed, years passed – there was no child. Of course, we went to the doctors, we spent a fortune for a visit, for treatment … I got a diagnosis that I had blocked both fallopian tubes and I would never be able to have children … in vitro was offered, but of course my husband and I refused – we knew that it was not God’s will for us to try for a baby in this way. We decided that we would trust God … of course, there were sadness and regret. When I was in a deep depression I opened the Bible with words: “you will have a son”. We started praying the Rosary with my husband. The Rosary was always very close to me – Holy Mary never left me. Depending on the situation we lived our lives. Sometimes there were some tensions and clicks, especially when we were not praying together. Some time ago I went to the sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in Gdańsk for a recollection for women. I remember how the priest put up a box on the altar, signed “Jesus, take care of it”. I was to write a letter to God … I poured out all my regrets on a piece of paper. I threw out everything that was in my heart and I left it on the altar. From the recollection I came home with a great peace … In the meantime many people prayed for us: various communities, our community to which we belong, community of prayer for children,sisters … We felt this prayer very strongly. We knew that this time of waiting was God’s plan, that He wanted to change our marriage, relationships, give peace and understanding that “we don’t always get everything we want, but sometimes He has a different plan for us”. During the summer holidays we went to Medjugorje, we left everything there and we came back with such a great peace in our heart, we knew that everything would be fine. Exactly a year ago we were here at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Pregnancy in Matemblewo praying for healing. I remember the moment of an exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, then I already knew that I would be pregnant. I was looking at Jesus with such a big smile. We did another fallopian tube patency test and it turned out that both are patent … The pregnancy was not easy, from the very beginning it was defined as “high-risk pregnancy”. There were injections all along, high TSH, low progesterone, thrombophilia and a lot of different diseases. Throughout my pregnancy, I had doubts whether everything would be fine and whether Kubuś would be born healthy … He was born healthy! He got 10 points and is a super developing child. We belong to the community with my husband. In our community, at the beginning of the meetings, there have dividing groups … A male and a female group. I am in the female part with 7 people. Three people, including me, would love to have a child and there were great difficulties in it. We had all struggled with infertility for many years. We also prayed for one another. And one fall, within 2 months, we all came with the news that we were pregnant. So we also blessed the Lord that He had shown such righteousness and bestowed on each of us. There was great joy in our community. To make it funnier, each of us gave birth to a son, so we laughed too that He did not distinguish any of us. I would like to tell you not to lose hope. God is really good! Sometimes it takes time, but I believe He will bless you. Praise the Lord!
We have been married for 14 years and we have been trying to get children for about 8 years. It’s not that way, because every time my wife showed pregnancy it ended up in a loss, a miscarriage. We have visited many surgeries, but it made no difference they couldn’t help us. Everyone just ordered more tests. Enough of these experiences, we decided if God did not help us, that no one would be able to help. Later, we went to the New Life Community, where we gave our lives to Jesus and recognized Him as King and Lord of our lives. We have dedicated this particular matter of parenthood to God. I prayed for 2 years on December 8 at the Hour of Grace, asking for the gift of children. When I went to prayer for the third time that day, I was not aware that John was already developing under my wife’s heart. It didn’t take a long time because the day before Christmas Eve we learned that we were going to be parents again. We were very happy about it, wherever I couldn’t take this time because my thoughts were all in my head? Will the baby be born? Will she suffer again from it? At the moment of appearing at Mass with a prayer for healing, there was a prophecy: “The Lord comes to parents who have recently conceived a child, He comes to you, new parents”. Previous conceptions were lost, but now I have the power to believe. I clung to this prophecy like that woman suffering from hemorrhage who only when she grasps the mantle of Jesus she was healed. I didn’t know before why I had encountered this reading in the Scriptures, but now I know. God had a plan for us, His best, wonderful plan. When in July we were learning to improve our relationship, in the community and in childbirth. Jesus was with me all the time. John was born as our first child. God is great, God has great power. God is always with us. He can change everything. And this is how He changed our life by giving us our longed-for son – John. When we were in the hospital, when it was that moment of childbirth, waiting in the corridor for his birth, I had an inner peace in me, because God assured us that He is with us all the time .. I did not even pray too much because I knew that He was there and had it in His care. When John was born, I got him in my hands for 2 minutes. I found out that he had breathing problems and had to be transferred to another hospital. I did not argue with God why this is so, because I knew that God, as He said: “I assure you that I am always with you. Do not be afraid”. When I was going to the hospital to see our son, I only asked God that I would not see such a picture of Johnny attached to some apparatus – and God did it. When I got to the room, Johnny was lying on his own breathing, it was such God’s assurance for me. For all, praise God! Mariusz
I want to share my miracle that happened two years ago with the help of Holy Mary and Jesus. My husband and I have been trying for 7 years for a child ( for our older son, who wanted to have siblings). After years of efforts, the adoption decision was made, we went through the entire adoption paperwork, happy that at the end of the year we would be able to hold our baby in our arms … But it happened differently … It turned out that I was pregnant. Joy filled our hearts as we had already lost hope for biological offspring. Things got complicated … It turned out that I fell ill with malignant (triple negative) breast cancer. There were despair, anger, uncertainty about my life and the life of the child we wanted so much. The fight for me and the baby began. At some point the question was asked if we want to keep the pregnancy after all? A tragedy in our life … On the one hand, there was a struggle for my life, and on the other hand, for this baby that had already been conceived with us. One day I received a phone call from a doctor who said that at the next visit we had to tell him our decision … A great despair and in this despair I asked the Mother of God for help, I entrusted her with my life and the life of my child. I prayed with the words to Holy Mary, “You were a mother, you lost your child, please help me make the right decision and take care of my health”, I entrusted myself 100% to her. Since then, I have felt the lightness as if someone took that weight off my shoulders. Today I know that it was Mary who saved me and my daughter. With Her help, I underwent treatment, chemotherapy, gave birth to a baby girl, underwent surgery, radiotherapy and today we are both healthy and we enjoy our lives. Pola was born in the 33rd week with a weight of 1.95 kg. With God’s help she managed to survived and she is a strong and a wise girl now.Praise the Lord!
Na pierwszej adoracji w Matemblewie w zeszłym roku, padły słowa poznania, że za rok o tej porze zostaniemy rodzicami… dokładnie tej Bożej obietnicy nie pamiętamy ale oboje z mężem spojrzeliśmy wtedy na siebie w jednym momencie i jakoś bardzo mocno poczuliśmy, że są to słowa skierowane do nas. Serca nam biły jak szalone.W moich oczach ogromne przerażenie i strach, a z drugiej strony wiedziałam, że to nie możliwe. Dlaczego? No właśnie po pierwsze ja słowa poznania, że będę mamą skierowane prosto do mnie usłyszałam dwa lata wcześniej i do tej pory nic się nie zadziało a z drugiej strony moje zdrowie i zalecenia lekarzy nie pozwalały na to. Przeszłam cztery poważne operacje i dwa zabiegi. Kiedy usłyszałam te słowa pobiegłam do lekarza aby upewnić się czy aby na pewno nie!!!! I wtedy kolejny raz usłyszałam, że nie ma takiej możliwości z resztą z takimi wynikami i z tak zaawansowaną chorobą hashimoto nie ma szans na zajście w ciążę. Wtedy nawet trochę się ucieszyłam, bo z jednej strony bardzo pragnęłam dziecka a z drugiej strony bardzo się bałam.
Kiedy zaszłam w poprzednia ciążę o którą staraliśmy się 10 lat nasze małżeństwo bardzo mocno się posypało. Więcej czasu rozmawialiśmy o rozwodzie niż o naszym dziecku, na które czekamy. Ciąża była bardzo trudna, leżenie w szpitalu i do tego ogromna samotność. Kompletnie tego nie rozumiałam, a w moim sercu radość zastąpiła złość na Pana Boga. Ciągle pojawiające się pytanie dlaczego? Dlaczego Panie Jezu obdarowujesz mnie dzieckiem a zabierasz męża? Nie rezygnowałam z modlitwy choć to był czas kiedy było bardzo trudno się modlić.Trwało to wszystko parę lat. Moja modlitwa a raczej ciągłe pretensje i zadawanie pytań przeradzały się w coraz to bliższe relacje z Panem Bogiem. Tak bardzo wtedy zbliżyłam się do Niego, z każdym dniem Pan Bóg stawał się coraz mi bliższy, stawał się moim najlepszym przyjacielem, ja czułam się coraz bardziej kochana i rozumiana, moje słowa żalu i złości przemieniały się w słowa kocham Cię. Ta bliskość z Panem Bogiem zbliżała mnie do mojego męża. Jego ogromna miłość i bliskość leczyła nasze małżeńskie relacje. Zrozumienie siebie, budowanie zaufania a przede wszystkim wybaczanie sobie sprawiły, że miłość w naszym małżeństwie pojawiła się ze zdwojoną siłą. Wszystko się ułożyło, oboje bardzo zbliżyliśmy się do Pana Boga, choć dziś już wiem, że to Pan Bóg zaprosił nas do tej bliskiej relacji, przyjaźni bo bardzo nas kocha. I kiedy po raz pierwszy usłyszałam słowa, że zostanę mamą bardzo się ucieszyłam i jeszcze bardziej przestraszyłam. Bałam się, że kiedy pojawi się dziecko małżeństwo znowu się sypnie. Ale miesiące mijały, rok drugi i dziecka niema. Często nawet wątpiłam w te słowa, myślałam że ksiądz się pomylił, że może coś jest nie tak. Po jakimś czasie zostaliśmy zaproszeni tu do Matemblewa do wspólnej modlitwy za pary starając się o potomstwo. Wtedy pomyślałam my …..i już na pierwszym spotkaniu te słowa, że za rok…..patrząc wtedy na Pana Jezusa oddałam Mu każdy mój niepokój serca, każdy lek i strach, to był moment kiedy przebaczyłam mężowi z tak miłością jaka otrzymuje od Pana Boga. W moim sercu jakby pojawiła się zgoda, na to co Pan Bóg chce nam dać. Po kilku miesiącach okazało się, że jestem w ciąży i dokładnie rok później 2 września urodziła nam się córeczka Helenka. Pan Bóg daje nam słowo, a ono nie wypełnia się, czekamy miesiąc rok a nawet i dłużnej, często zaczynamy wątpić a nawet rezygnujemy z modlitwy ze spotkania z Jezusem, bo nie ma sensu, bo nic się nie dzieje, że te słowa chyba jednak nie do nas. Nic bardziej mylnego. Dziś już wiem, że Pan Bóg zawsze wypełnia swoje słowa. Ale to my często nie jesteśmy gotowi aby je przyjąć. Dlatego też wraz ze słowem, które nam daje, daje nam czas. Czas, w który pozwala nam dojrzeć do tego słowa. Oczyścić i przygotować serce na przyjęcie tego co Pan Bóg chce nam dać. Ten czas, który otrzymujemy pozwala nam poprzez Jego słowo zbliżyć się do Niego, do drugiego człowieka, uczy nas dialogu miłości bo Bóg jest miłością. Dziś wiem, że wtedy dwa czy trzy lata temu nie byłam gotowa aby przyjąć słowo, które Pan Bóg dla nas przygotował, dziś rozumiem dlaczego tak długo musiałam czekać. Pan Bóg tak bardzo nas kocha, zawsze wypełnia swoje słowa, wystarczy Mu zaufać. Bliskość i przyjaźń z Panem Bogiem czyni cuda. Powiedz Mu tylko tak.
Chwała Panu. Ania i Rafał
Jesteśmy małżeństwem od 14 lat a od około 8 lat staraliśmy się o potomstwo. Nie była to dla nas łatwa droga, ponieważ za każdym razem kiedy zachodziłam w ciążę kończyło się to stratą, poronieniem. Wtedy zwiedziliśmy wiele gabinetów ale żaden lekarz nie potrafił nam pomóc. Każdy tylko rozkładał ręce i zlecał kolejne badania. Byliśmy na Mszy z modlitwą o uzdrowienie i to był ten moment kiedy powiedzieliśmy dość! Dość tych doświadczeń, jeśli Bóg nam nie pomoże to nikt nie jest w stanie nam pomóc. Później pojechaliśmy na kurs nowe życie, gdzie oddaliśmy swoje życie Jezusowi, uznaliśmy Go Królem i Panem naszego życia. Tą konkretną sprawę jaką jest rodzicielstwo oddaliśmy Bogu. Modliłam się przez 2 lata 8 grudnia w Godzinie Łaski, prosząc o dar potomstwa. Gdy pojechałam 3 raz tego dnia na modlitwę nie byłam świadoma, że pod moim sercem rozwija się już Jaś. Długo nie trzeba było czekać na owoce modlitwy ponieważ w grudniu dzień przed wigilią dowiedzieliśmy się, że po raz kolejny zostaniemy rodzicami. Bardzo cieszyliśmy się z tego powodu aczkolwiek nie potrafiłam pokazywać tego szczęścia, ponieważ cały czas chodziły mi myśli po głowie: czy to się uda? Czy dziecko się urodzi? Czy nie będziemy kolejny raz cierpieć z tego powodu? W lutym na Mszy z modlitwą o uzdrowienie było takie proroctwo: „Pan przychodzi do rodziców, którzy niedawno poczęli dziecko, On przychodzi do Was z pokojem. Tamte poczęcia były tracone, ale to poczęcie mam moc utrzymać”. Uchwyciłam się tego proroctwa jak ta kobieta cierpiąca na krwotok, która całe swoje mienie wydała na lekarzy i nic jej nie pomogło i dopiero kiedy uchwyciła się płaszcza Jezusowego została uzdrowiona. Nie wiedziałem wcześniej dlaczego spotykałam się w Piśmie Świętym ciągle z tym czytaniem, ale teraz już wiem. Bóg miał dla nas swój plan, swój najlepszy, wspaniały plan. Kiedy w lipcu trafiliśmy do szpitala czułam się wyjątkowo, ponieważ cały czas czułam obecność Jezusa… W personelu, w lekarzach i zwłaszcza przy porodzie. Cały czas Jezus był przy mnie. Jasiu się urodził jako nasze pierwsze a zarazem piąte dziecko. Ania
Bóg jest wielki, Bóg ma potężną moc. Bóg jest zawsze z nami. On potrafi wszystko zmieniać. I tak przemienił właśnie nasze życie, poprzez to, że dał nam naszego upragnionego syna – Jasia. Kiedy byliśmy w szpitalu kiedy był ten moment porodu czekając na korytarzu na jego narodziny miałem w sobie wewnętrzny pokój, bo Bóg zapewnił nas, że On jest cały czas przy nas.. Nawet się za bardzo nie modliłem bo wiedziałem, że On tam jest i ma to w swojej opiece. Kiedy Jasiu się urodził dostałem go na 2 minuty do rąk. Dowiedziałem się, że ma problemy z oddychaniem i musi trafić do innego szpitala. Nie kłóciłem się z Panem Bogiem dlaczego tak jest, bo wiedziałem że Pan Bóg tak jak powiedział: „ zapewniam Was, że Ja zawsze z Wami jestem. Nie bójcie się”. Jadąc do szpitala do naszego synka, prosiłem tylko Pana Boga abym nie ujrzał takiego obrazu podpiętego Jasia pod jakąś aparaturę – i Bóg to uczynił. Kiedy trafiłem na salę, Jasiu leżał samodzielnie oddychając, to była dla mnie takie Boże zapewnienie. Za to Tobie Chwała Boże! Mariusz
Kochani! Chciałam się z Wami podzielić kawałkiem swojego życia…Pewnego dnia dowiedziałam się, że jestem chora, że mam raka. Polscy lekarze załamywali ręce mówiąc: “nie mamy pomysłu na Pani leczenie, został Pani rok życia…” Szukałam pomocy poza granicami Polski.. Znalazła się klinika za granicą, która mi mogła pomóc i tak też się stało. Teraz jestem zdrowa, nie ma nawrotów choroby, badania i wyniki są książkowe i nikt by w życiu nie powiedział, że chorowałam.. Wydawałoby się, że już będzie dobrze… Bardzo dobrze pamiętam rozmowę z TOMKIEM (z moim Mężem) jeszcze przed naszym ślubem na temat tego: ile chcemy mieć dzieci… Odpowiedź nasza była taka sama TROJE. I absolutnie w tamtym czasie nie myśleliśmy, że ten plan będzie dla nas aż tak trudny do zrealizowania. Wyszłam za mąż… jak to każda kobieta: piękna suknia, ślub, wesele, podróż poślubna, życie takie błogie i radosne i nagle okazuje się że, jestem w stanie błogosławionym. Dla nas to była przeogromna radość, szczególnie po takiej chorobie jaką ja przeszłam. W 13 tygodniu ciąży okazało się, że dziecko zmarło, serce przestało bić i trzeba to dziecko usunąć. Trzeba… bo nic się nie da zrobić.
Nie ma słów, które by opisały co kobieta czuje w takim momencie i nikt nigdy tego nie zrozumie jeśli sam tego nie doświadczy. Dla mnie i dla mojego męża był to ogromny ból, ogromny żal do Pana Boga… Ale w tym wszystkim Pan Bóg dał nam taką siłę bycia przy Nim. Ciężko mi powiedzieć czy w tym czasie modliliśmy się z moim mężem, bo to chyba nie była modlitwa ale po prostu w milczeniu trwaliśmy przy Panu Bogu aby dodawał nam sił. Wiedzieliśmy, że Pan Bóg nie chciał śmierci tego dziecka i że On na pewno coś z tym zrobi. Po jakimś czasie okazało się, że znowu jestem w ciąży i ten sam scenariusz. Czy z każdą kolejną stratą dziecka było łatwiej? Absolutnie nie. Każde dziecko pokochaliśmy od pierwszego dnia kiedy dowiedzieliśmy się o Jego istnieniu. Żyłam w nadziei do końca, że po badaniu USG przed podaniem tabletki usłyszę, że dziecko żyje.
Po stracie drugiego dziecka usłyszałam, że mamy dać sobie spokój bo nie ma szans abym doniosła żywe dziecko a jeżeli doniosę to jest duże prawdopodobieństwo, że będzie chore. Krzyczałam na Pana Boga, wiem że on wysłuchał mojego krzyku, jako kobiety, jako matki.. Z drugiej strony wiedziałam że te dzieci są przy mnie, przy moim mężu… Czuwają, mają imiona bo to są nasze dzieci my jesteśmy ich rodzicami.
Maciek urodził się jako nasze czwarte dziecko a Kinga jako szóste. Do końca życia zapamiętam ten dzień, gdy byłam w ciąży z Kingą.. Od rana bardzo się bałam wizyty u lekarza i prosiłam Dobrego Boga o pokój serca. Lekarz bardzo skrupulatnie mnie badał, była ogromna cisza… I usłyszałam “Pani Lucyno niestety serduszko dziecka nie bije”… Kazał mi się ubrać i ze skierowaniem do szpitala miałam jechać na usunięcie martwego dziecka, które było pod moim serce. W gabinecie była ogromna cisza. Lekarz wypisywał skierowanie a ja w sercu bardzo się modliłam słowami Jezu Ufam Tobie… Aż nagle lekarz wstał i powiedział, że jeszcze raz mnie zbada. Rozpoczęło się badanie na nowo w ogromnym skupieniu i ciszy. Nagle usłyszałam: ku….. jest serce, bije!!!!!!!!!
Popłakałam się jak małe dziecko a lekarz spojrzał na mnie i nie mógł uwierzyć w to co się wydarzyło… Dzisiaj ten CUD ma prawie 2 lata i każdego dnia dziękujemy Miłosiernemu Bogu za Kingę. Dla Boga nie ma nic niemożliwego! Ufać do końca – jakże bardzo to ważne. Maciek i Kinga są zdrowymi dziećmi, pełnymi radości i chęci życia. Nasze serca płakały bardzo po stracie, ale nigdy nie straciliśmy z Mężem Nadziei. Nie zawsze potrafiliśmy rozmawiać z Bogiem ale zawsze staraliśmy się czuwać przed Nim razem – nawet w milczeniu i żałobie. Kochani w oczach Boga wszystko jest możliwe
Pragnę się podzielić swoją radością z upragnionego synka i podziękować za modlitwę. Właśnie tulę do snu pięknego dużego chłopca, którego sama nakarmiłam własnym mlekiem. Wszystkie te rzeczy są zdziwieniem dla lekarzy a oszałamiającym szczęściem i darem dla mnie. Pod koniec wywiadu przy przyjmowaniu do szpitala na oddział położniczy usłyszałam pytanie od zdziwionych położnych: jak pani zaszła w ciążę? To mi uświadomiło, że przebyłam długą drogę i podjęłam walkę, którą nie każdy podejmuje. Chorowałam na niedoczynność tarczycy, zespół policystycznych jajników, insulinooporność i endometriozę. Zanim trafiłam do NaPro Centrum byłam źle zdiagnozowana i w wyniku terapii środkami antykoncepcyjnymi miałam też depresję, która jak wiadomo nie pomaga w założeniu rodziny… No i otyłość to na nią lekarze zawsze zwracali uwagę jako główna przeszkodę i moją winę. To zawsze był pierwszy argument dlaczego leczenie nie przynosi skutków i zarzut u każdego lekarza u którego byłam. Każda z moich chorób dyskwalifikowała mnie do naturalnego poczęcia według większości lekarzy, którzy uważali, że w moim przypadku skuteczne będzie tylko invitro. Piszę to świadectwo dla wszystkich par, które latami zmagają się z niepłodnością, lekceważeniem ich godności przez lekarzy, samotnością, poczuciem winy, złością i ogromnym nieopisanym bólem i tęsknotą. Po latach diagnozowania usłyszałam mając dwadzieścia siedem lat, że raczej nie będę mieć dzieci. Potem już dostałam na wypisie ze szpitala oficjalnie plakietkę: niepłodność. Zastanawiałam się po co kupiliśmy takie duże mieszkanie, skoro nie będzie naszej gromady wyśnionej, teraz trzeba wykończyć i spłacać kredyt. Po co braliśmy ślub? Gdzie, jak znaleźć nowe cele i marzenia w życiu? To były strasznie trudne lata dla naszego małżeństwa a szczególnie dla mojego poczucia własnej wartości. Jestem tym bardziej wdzięczna wszystkim, którzy nie wstydzili się mówić o swoich trudnościach, o walce, osobom, grupom które się za nas modliły, pielgrzymom niosącym moje intencje. Bez Was nie otworzyła bym się na miłość i łaskę. Stałam się lepszą kobietą, żoną zanim zostałam matką. Taka kolej rzeczy ma sens..
Gdy się zaufa, kieruje wiarą, nadzieją i miłością i otacza ludźmi – w tym lekarzami np. jak my z NaPro Centrum, którzy kierują się tym samym, to dzieją się wspaniałe rzeczy. Niech również Was wypełni wdzięczność i uwielbienie.
