My Hope for Having Children: A True Story of Love, Sacrifice, Faith, Courage and Hope

My Hope for Having Children: A True Story of Love, Sacrifice, Faith, Courage and Hope

I strongly agree with the researchers mentioned above that the definition of “hope” have learned, religious, and cognitive components because of my own life experiences … when I had hope to have children, hope to keep my triplets growing inside me the longest time possible, and hope for my triplets to stay alive after they were born. For example, some of the cognitive strategies that I used were positive self-talk, healing thoughts, prayers, and reading uplifting books and envisioning hopeful images. These cognitive strategies helped me throughout my high-risk pregnancy  and the months after my triplets were  born.

Once “hope” became a reality for me, and I was told that I was pregnant with triplets, I was ecstatic and, at the same time, “welcomed” the trust and gift given to me to be a “mother” to three beautiful babies.  I have felt immense inner strength to do my best to be their strongest advocate and protector. Yes, having “hope” was a very positive motivator.

Coming from a close-knit family of five – two parents and one sister and one brother, then my siblings getting married and having two children each, I realized the great joy, love, and happiness children brought to your heart.
