Here For You

Why are we here? For you, friend... we're here for you.
Are you just starting to wonder if you are infertile, reeling from a crushing diagnosis, striving to seek God's best plans as you consider medical treatment or adoption options?

Are you (im)patiently waiting on a seemingly-silent God who calls you to be still?

Have the years stretched out long and weary behind you and your arms still remain empty?

Perhaps you are trying to figure out what it looks like to be the parent of a Heaven-born child?

What do you do with all those hopes and prayers that were crushed when your adoption did not unfold as planned?

Has God closed all doors to traditional parenthood, drawing you to seek purpose, contentment and fulfillment as a family of two?

Has God's plan for your family included the addition of living children, but you find yourself surprised and confused by how the grief journey here has forever changed you?

Are you a "Burden Bearer," a family member, friend, church leader or supportive influence for anyone listed above? Would you like to better understand the journey in order to offer appropriate support and encouragement?

If you can answer, "Yes!" to any of these, Held is written with you in mind.

Welcome! We look forward to walking this road hand-in-hand with you.
