Chloe: A Story of Infertility, Adoption and God’s Love

I realize that many of you, including the cat sitting next to your computer screen, have probably already watched this testimony of a couple who battled not only infertility, but also God’s goodness.  However, I just couldn’t shake the feeling that someone…maybe even you…needed to see it for the first time or perhaps again.  So go ahead and get cozy.  It’s a short 14 minute film about Matt and Annie who grew up together, fell in love, got married and fully expected to have a family. (Sound familiar to your own hopes and dreams?) But as you probably know, life doesn’t always work out like we carefully plan. And it certainly didn’t for this couple. So take a peak. I promise, their story…their struggle…and their testimony of a God who is loving and faithful is worth your time (and a few tissues I know you will use).

If you enjoyed this testimony and would like to read or watch more, then check out the Testimonies section of this blog by clicking here. I pray that each story will stir within your soul hope that your circumstances can change and ignite within your spirit faith to believe that they will.

For nothing is impossible with God.  ~Luke 1:37

For God does not show favoritism.  ~Romans 2:11

With Love

  1. Thank you for your story. We found out last week that both of us have fertility issues and we will never have children of our own. We are beginning the adoption process and are waiting for approval. Your story filled my heart with hope.

    • Shelly- so sorry for your devastating news but so hopeful for your new adoption journey. Infertility is so cruel but it can really lead to the greatest gifts. Xo

    • Shelly, I am so sorry for your infertility news, but honestly I’m excited for you to adopt! Based on my first hand experience I can promise you that the adoption process is long and hard, but now that we are officially waiting for our phone to ring I can also promise you that it’s excited and hopeful! And even though we don’t have our child yet, I know in my heart that our family is meant to grow through adoption and it will be worth it in the end! Sending you love and wishing you a speedy adoption approval process.

    • I wasn’t going to post it because so many have already seen it. But one day this video won’t be so popular on Facebook and I wanted a place for people to see it. It’s such a cool testimony


  2. Absolutely love this! Although I’ve seen it before, the tears are flowing watching it again. I needed a reminder of His goodness and love. Thank you!


  3. Elisha, I actually had not yet seen this video….thank you so much for sharing! Made me cry, of course, and it is such a good reminder that God’s plans are so much bigger and better than our own.

    • Alana, I am so glad I went with my gut to post this! And you are sooo right that God’s plans are so much bigger and better than ours. Hugs to you! Xo


  4. Thank you so much for this… my husband and I have been married for almost eight years and struggled with infertility nearly our entire marriage ..watching this was like watching a movie about our journey…adoption has always been a tough discussion for us…but this film gives me hope and we had our first real discussion about adoption tonight because of it….thank you for sharing.


    • Hey girlie! Thank you so much for watching it and commenting! I haven’t had time to read up on blogs lately (family is visiting from FL) but I hope all is well with you. I think of and pray for you often. xo


  5. Thank you so much for sharing this, Elisha! I hadn’t seen it yet and it definitely brought tears. Now I feel like we need to start recording our process so we have documentation of our journey to show our child one day! 🙂


  6. What a beautiful story. Thank you for posting this.
    I started thinking about the birth mother – how hard it would be to give your baby up. But this would be an amazing comfort to her as well, that this was the right family for her little girl.

    • I agree with you! And I am sure that the birth mother and adoptive parents will continue to keep in touch. It just seems like they got along so well together. Thank you for watching and sharing your thoughts as always! It’s always great to hear from you.
