For nearly four years we struggled to conceive and carry a child. The doctors had exhausted all means to help us and just before giving up decided to do a last surgery to see if by a miracle there was something going on that they weren’t aware of and that evaded them in prior tests and surgeries.
They found a very small problem and corrected it but were not hopeful that even if I did conceive that I would carry and deliver a healthy baby. I began my Novena to Saint Jude the week before my surgery and continued for nine days. Two weeks after my surgery,
I discovered that I was expecting. I now have a healthy ten month old girl whose middle name is Jude. I am forever grateful to Saint Jude.
