    A Hope Deferred: A Couple’s Guide to Coping with InfertilityA Hope Deferred cover

    One in six couples will experience the agony of infertility. Approximately 50 percent of those couples will eventually conceive and carry a child to full term… 50 percent will not.

    Whether an infertile couple eventually has a child or not takes second place to the agony of waiting, to the pressure of coping with a daily grief that affects every area of a couple’s life — to the marriage relationship, to faith in God’s wisdom and compassion.

    How a couple faces this crisis can mean the difference between times of destruction and bitterness or times of emotional maturity and spiritual growth. A Hope Deferred is a Christian couple’s guide to coping positively with the wait. It is a book that voices gut-level emotion while offering hope and encouragement in a practical way.
