MIRACLE BABY: Couple from Batangas proves that God’s timing is never late but always on time


Can you remember the last time you wrote a letter to your future self?

Back in high school, this woman from Batangas wrote a letter to her future self. Just like any other student, she wanted to finish college and marry the love of her life.

But before she got married in 2021, she accidentally found the letter again and realized that all of her wishes came true except for one—to have a baby boy.

The last list in her letter was a little bit of a challenge. Several doctors said that Elyssah Janne Venegas Gomez had a 10% chance of conceiving a baby, after she was diagnosed with endometriosis, PCOS, posterior adenomyosis, and myoma in 2017.

When they were still dating, she said that she opened up about her reproductive condition to her partner. But despite that, Elyssah and Mattheus got married in September 2021.

After getting married, Elyssah and Mattheus tried to have a baby for several months. Every time her period gets delayed, she would always take a pregnancy test. But it left the couple brokenhearted again and again.

When they decided to postpone their plan to have a baby, a miracle happened.

One day, Elyssah felt so sleepy for a couple of days which is very unusual for her. She then decided to take another pregnancy test. After experiencing disappointment in the past, Elyssah did not expect anything at all.

“Hindi ko tinignan ‘yung PT kasi sanay na po akong negative so para magkaroon lang po ako ng comfort na chineck ko na––tignan ko nga kung magpapositive ba ito or ano…tinesting ko po siya––inano ko lang po siya sa likod ko “hmmph negative naman” tinapon ko na po,” she shared.

“Mga 30 to 20 minutes binalikan ko po sa basurahan kasi parang may nagtulak ba sa akin––parang may nagsabi sa akin na “tignan mo” parang may ganon pong bumulong sa akin so pagtingin ko po dalawa po siyang linya kaya lang po malabo ‘yung isa––sobrang labo po nung isa,” she added.

It turned out positive! But she was still hesitant because the second line was a bit blurred. So Elyssah decided to take 10 pregnancy tests just to confirm.

“Tas ‘yung sinabi nga po na positive, hindi po kami makapaniwala talaga…talaga ba? Paano nangyari? Paano nailaban ni Lord ang 10 percent ko na magka-baby?” she said.

Everyone was excited. Their family planned a gender reveal! But the couple couldn’t wait for another week to know the gender of the baby. Elyssah and Mattheus decided to take a sneak a peek at their baby’s gender!

“Kaya po kami nagpa-gender reveal, ang gusto po talaga namin ay with family…sabihin na natin ito matigas ‘yung ulo namin…may plano na po talaga mag-gender reveal kami as a family kaya lang po..sabi ko po kay Matt kasi sobrang blessed gusto ko po ma-savor…ano ba talaga ‘yung magiging reaction natin ng tayong dalawa lang,” she recalled.

“Napaka-bait po ng panginoon na binigyan nya po kami ng ganitong blessing na talagang unexpected––hindi na po niya kami pinaghintay ng ganong katagal. Ito po talaga y’ung patunay na ang baby po ay ibinibigay po ni Lord. Hindi po iyan ibinibigay ng kahit sinong doctor, ng kahit anong science. Kapag sinabi po ni Lord na magkaka-anak ka, whatever age, whatever condition you are. Walang makakapagsabi na imposible! Ito po talagang nangyari sa aming dalawa…nothing is impossible with God,” Elyssah said while looking back on their journey.

Elyssah is expected to give birth to their baby boy, Lev, on September 22, 2022.
