I must interrupt this series to talk about my fertility nurse, Christine.
I fully believe that God created Christine to be a fertility nurse, and she absolutely accepted His calling for her.
I am so glad that she did.
Know I loved my doctor, even if I had trouble understanding him (I got better after praying about it!), but Christine had invisible angel wings.
Both of them had faith in God and that was comforting to know that the people helping you in this were on the same side that you were on.
I don't know if you have ever been to a fertility clinic, but it is not a very happy place.
No one makes eye contact in the waiting room nor takes up conversation with anyone.
I was always tempted to say, "What are you in here for?" Know the fragility of most of these women including myself, I never could bring myself to do it.
Even though I am a school counselor and kept Kleenex in a strategic location on my desk, being a fertility nurse has to be so much more emotional with all the highs and lows, and there is a lot of lows.
Christine always did her job with a smile on her face, hope and encouragement coming from her words, and truly believing in God's plan.
I do not know what we would do without her.
I feel like she is family and should spend all holidays with her.
We would probably have to rent out the civic center for all the women that love, celebrate, and pray for her.
In fact, there are about 6 of us that whenever we meet, we always tend to have a "Let's Celebrate Christine" moment.
