Often times during infertility, IVF, embryo adoption or child adoption, it can feel like we’re at a standstill and just waiting. Waiting for a positive result, waiting to connect with the right family, or waiting on medical things. We know that some days are easier than others during a season of waiting, and we hope these encourage you during that time!

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.- Earl Nightingale

Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.- Bradley Whitford

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come. –Robert H. Schuller

Having patience is one of the hardest things about being human. We want to do it now, and we don’t want to wait. Sometimes we miss out on our blessing when we rush things and do it on our own time. -Deontay Wilder

And I am hopeful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait
I will move ahead,
bold and confident
taking every step in obedience



We must let go of the life that we planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us. – Joseph Campbell

Don’t wait to until you’ve reached your goal to be proud of yourself. Be proud of every step you take towards reaching that goal. -Unknown
