Let Go and Trust Him

David and Jordan Artuso share the lessons they learned when trying to grow their family.

My husband and I have been together for five years, a time when we have overcome so many obstacles together and have trusted God through it all. From cross country moves and new business ventures to getting married and starting a family. We have learned that it is all in HIS perfect timing, not ours. 

When we first started trying to grow our family, we were fortunate to quickly become pregnant. Everything was perfect, up until our 12-week ultrasound when we learned our baby no longer had a heartbeat. It was crushing. I felt broken. My husband and I tried our best to heal. We leaned into God and trusted that it just wasn’t in His plans for us at that time. 

Three months later we learned that we were pregnant again! Praise God! I thought surely this was it — we couldn’t possibly lose another pregnancy. Sadly, at nine weeks we were told again that our baby no longer had a heartbeat. David and I were beyond devastated. We started doubting if we would ever become parents. Was there something wrong with us? The second miscarriage put us into a “recurrent loss” category, and we were given the option to undergo infertility testing. 

After four months of testing, we were not given any real answers. We took that as a sign from God that we just needed to love each other as husband and wife and continue with Him as the center of our marriage. We had to let go and trust in Him. 

On Easter Sunday of 2020, four months after our second loss, we found out we were pregnant again. I knew in my heart that God had this planned for us all along. Our baby boy, Luke, was born in December 2020. 

“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her.”

Luke 1:45
