Setting Out

If you are setting out on the path of infertility (trying to conceive, discerning treatment or just coming to terms with the difficulty) we understand how overwhelming it can be. You don’t have to take these first steps on your own.

TESTIMONIALS

I recommend Springs in the Desert and its much-needed mission of providing concrete spiritual and emotional support to individuals and couples who struggle with infertility. I pray that [they] will continue to encourage those who struggle with infertility to unite their suffering with the suffering of Christ. May our lady intercede for all who participate in this apostolate, that they might experience the spiritual fruitfulness which never fails to flow from the cross of her Son!

Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend

You are the only organization looking to unmask who God has actually called us to be through our infertility and not seeing it as a “fixable problem”, but actually identifying the nature of the call. You help bring us together to see it, and encourage the fostering of bringing forth the fruits from this form of suffering and grief. In this way, we can recognize our importance to God and our place within the body of Christ as a whole.

Springs has been a life line in our more-recent infertility diagnosis. We feel seen and heard, even though we still struggle with our diagnosis.

There is no other community for those who are infertile. We are a forgotten community in the Church even though the Bible is filled with women and men praying for a child.

I truly have a different mindset than I did before the [small] group met. Hearing from other women, as well as continuing to grieve, has allowed me to help focus on my relationship with God and my family life with my husband.

Overall, [we appreciate] the support of others who truly understand. We are Christians, but not Catholic. I attend a Baptist church. While theologically, we differ on some things, our overall pursuit of Christ through this trial is the same.

The journey of infertility is like a rollercoaster; some days, you feel perfectly fine and normal. Other days, you feel jealousy, envy, and anger. The ministry has provided ways to cope with those feelings.

I REALLY want to commend Springs in the Desert for recognizing male-factor infertility, which is a HUGE silence in much of the Church community.
