Book Description

November 21, 2009
Six million U.S. couples are currently struggling with infertility. Living in a culture that celebrates effortless success only makes that burden harder to bear. Why is everyone else able to conceive? What does it mean to be singled-out for suffering? And, where is God in all this? Many people never find the answers, but it doesn't have to be that way. Author Susan Radulovacki guides couples through ten scripture-based messages of insight and hope. Topics include feeling desperate, facing defeat, asking why, finding peace, and much more. In addition, ten couples share detailed accounts of their challenging--and ultimately successful--infertility journeys. Each of their stories demonstrates God's desire to transform the experience from a heartbreaking quest into life-changing good news. If you are searching for comfort and hope in the midst of infertility, read Pregnant with Hope.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pregnant with Hope invites couples on a journey of hope and healing. This is a book for struggling couples, as well as for those of us who love them and often don't know what to say or do. I'm so thankful for this resource." --Dr. Stephen A. Hayner, President, Columbia Theological Seminary

"Pregnant with Hope is a much-needed resource for couples who walk through the valley of despair during infertility. It helps readers discover that God is with them all along. In fact, through every struggle, He births a higher purpose. Read it, and find wisdom and comfort." --Nancy McGuirk, Author of Rest Assured, Founder, Women's Community Bible Study

"An excellent book! As an infertility specialist, I plan to recommend it to all of my patients as part of their ongoing care. I recommend it to anyone who cares for or about infertile couples." --Dr. Andrew Toledo, Medical Director, RESOLVE Hope Award Recipient 2009

"As a psychologist, and as a pastor for 30 years in the African-American community, I have long awaited a book like Pregnant with Hope. It gives me a significant, practical, spiritual tool to serve couples who find themselves facing infertility. --Reverend Dr. Gerald L. Durley

"Clergy don't know how to talk about infertility in the 21st century, [so] many of our faith communities are silent when confronted with the unfulfilled longing for a child. Pregnant with Hope opens a door into what is often a secret world of dread and disappointment to call fearful couples into the loving heart of God. It is truly a gift - a guide through the wilderness of infertility to joy." --Ethel Ware Carter, Program Director, Regional Council of Churches

From the Publisher

Pregnant with Hope meets infertile couples' two critical needs - for wisdom, and for hope - in a uniquely effective way. Author Susan Radulovacki digs deep into scripture, delivering insights that enable readers to work with God to bring blessings into their lives. In addition, she shares ten couples' candid accounts of their infertility journeys, including the awe-inspiring outcomes. Taken together, these messages of hope have the power to renew faith in God's purposeful goodness, and to sustain infertile couples until they hear that long-desired good news.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Encouragement for Infertile Couples! December 10, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As someone who has been on their own infertility journey for the last 18 months, I have read countless books on the subject, but this is the first one that actually resonated with me and gave me real hope in what is otherwise a seemingly bleak situation. I highly recommend this book to anyone having a crisis of faith while battling infertility! The real-life vignettes are very helpful and my husband and I saw ourselves in many of the stories. Seeing how others made it through the darkness is so encouraging and uplifting. The dialogue format allows you to see how other couples look back on their own difficulties and the book never sounds "preachy." This is a very tender look at how God really is present with couples who are hurting as they wait for a child. I found so many new ways of looking at our situation and really felt God speaking to me through the pages. I think I must have cried my way through the whole thing! VERY highly recommended for all couples experiencing infertility (and for family members who want to know how to better understand this situation).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for the "hopeful" soul! November 20, 2009
Format:Paperback
I just can't rave enough about this book! I'm so elated that someone finally wrote a Christian-based book on infertility and trying to conceive. I love how the book is structured with lessons and bible verses to find extra verification, personal stories of couples and their struggles, and a place for reflection and thought. For me, it was learning to let go of the control and anxiety of the two-week wait. Through reading this book, I was able to find peace, grace, comfort, encouragement, and hope that God is going to bless me when He is ready. A must-read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sincere, compassionate, insightful guidance December 7, 2009
Format:Paperback
"Pregnant with Hope" describes with great compassion the isolation and the emotional roller coaster that infertile couples can experience. For people outside that experience, the book illuminates the inside story in powerful ways. For couples living that experience directly, it brings many resources to them--accounts of other couples dealing with infertility, told in their own voices, as well as readings and commentary on scriptural promises. A heartfelt, generous and knowing guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life-Changing!!!!! September 27, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been struggling with infertility for 16 months now, and after reading other books, forums, articles, you name it.....NOTHING compares to the book "Pregnant With Hope". I actually cried through every chapter because it felt like the author was talking only to me, it hit that close to home. Every feeling that she describes is the same as every one that I dealt with, and the stories from the 10 couples that struggled with the journey as well were so inspiring. Words cannot express what this book has done for me, but I really am able to see the whole situation in a much different way--a good way at that-- and I never thought I could say that. I wanted to highlight strong points in this book as I was reading, but I found that I would have highlighted the whole thing! I am so glad I bought this book instead of getting it from a library so that I will always have it to refer back to. The beautiful message of hope and inspiration dring the darkest time of my life has helped me to keep trying, but to STOP living in waiting. Now I will always have this book to refer to, and I believe that although it's a strong message about infertility, it can be related to many hardships in life and how to pull through them.

By GAGirl
Format:Paperback
I cannot say enough positive things about Pregnant with Hope. Being surrounded by nonstop pregnancy announcements and baby showers among my friends, I often have felt so alone- watching them join this new "baby world", but not able to join it myself despite years of trying. It was so comforting and encouraging to read the personal stories. It helped my husband and me to see that other couples have walked this same walk and experienced similar losses, heartache, despair and frustration in the journey to becoming parents. We are not alone, and there actually IS hope and light and happiness at the end of this long, seemingly endless tunnel. This book reminds us that God has a plan for us. And with faith, patience and time, it will be revealed to us and is surely a better plan than we could have ever come up with on our own!

I have recommended this book to all my friends going through the roller coaster ride of infertility. The book truly brings hope to a situation that feels very hopeless on many days.

By Hopeful
Format:Paperback
My husband and I have experienced a lot of ups and downs in our life, but nothing could have prepared us for the emotional rollar coaster of infertility. In fact, we are one of the couples who have shared our story in this book. Susan has created a masterpiece, through her guidance from Christ. Finally, a book that addresses problems that so many couples experience. The stories featured in this book are true and are all shared from the hearts of 10 different couples who have all experienced infertility differently. However, they all have one thing in common, the belief in something greater than themselves, God.

Continue to pray, and believe that God is listening. Read the stories of other couples who will bring you hope as you experience your own journey to parenthood. Thank you, Susan, for creating a book that is God-centered and brings hope to those who are hopeless.

More About the Author

Susan Radulovacki was a honeymoon baby, born nine months and eight days after her parents eloped. She anticipated an equally fertile future, but she and her husband were heartbroken to discover that would not be the story. Instead, they battled infertility for years, grieving numerous lost children in the process. With the help of reproductive endocrinology, and by the grace of God, they finally became parents -- to a boy and a girl.

Years later, Susan trained as a Stephen Minister. Soon after, she was asked to create and lead a one-of-a-kind, non-denominational Bible study for infertile couples. That unique ministry provided hope and comfort to countless couples, all of whom became parents within a year of completing the study. The messages Susan delivered became the basis for the book, Pregnant with Hope: Good News for Infertile Couples.

Susan continues to deliver messages of hope to infertile couples -- individually, in small groups, at sponsored talks, in blog posts, and through the website PregnantWithHope.com. To learn more about this life-changing ministry and how to start a group near you, visit PregnantWithHope.com.
