Item description for All I Wanted Was a Baby by Kimberly Davis...
Overview Do your arms ache to cradle a child, to nurture, cuddle and train him in the way he should go? Do you struggle with wondering why you're barren, or feel you can't bear the pain of another miscarriage. Kimberly Davis understands the pain of empty arms. Through nine miscarriages over a seven year period she sunk to the depths of despair, felt deserted by God, and wondered if life was worth living without a child. Riding an emotional roller coaster, her hopes rose with each pregnancy only to crash again with grief. Yet something inside her kept telling her to trust God, and He would prove His power. When she could bear the pain no longer, God, in His faithfulness, gave her a son...and another...and another.

The roller coaster ride of emotions that the author felt were portrayed in this book. I laughed and cried as she took us on her journey and battle with GOD often looking at myself.
Power(less) Testimony Sep 29, 2005
Author Kimberly R. Davis has written her testimony in a short, non-fiction book titled, "All I Wanted Was a Baby." She shares her trials in efforts to conceive a child with her husband. She spoke of her desire to have a child of her own, being able to cuddle, nourish, and train him in the way he should go.
Unfortunately, after enduring nine miscarriages, her faith in God was shaken, and her desire turned into defeat. That is until after enduring the miscarriages and dealing with the emotional baggage and fading faith in God, was she able to carry her first son to term. All this was due to the prayers of her family and church family is Mrs. Davis' testimony. Not only was she able to finally have her first child, the Lord blessed her again and then again with sons numbers two and three!
Mrs. Davis' testimony is one to be admired and should give faith and hope to any woman who is having trouble conceiving and that through faith and prayers, God will bless you to have a child as well. The first thing I noted was at first inspection the book is a little deceiving unless you read the back cover. The front of the book gives you a visual of what appears to be a young teenager who might be trying to have a baby of her own. After reading the book, I was not convinced that the writer actually endured all she wrote about. The voice of the author "sounded" monotone, almost as if she were telling someone else's story and not her own. Immediately I had questions that were not answered in her book: "How did she feel other than defeated, and what does it mean to lose one's faith and in doing so, what happens?" I was looking for this short book of powerful testimony to have me in tears, praising God for the triumphs and going through this ordeal with the author.
Sorry to say that I would not recommend this book to someone who is going through a similar situation because it would leave them asking more questions than before they read the book.

I enjoyed this book very much. The author was able to capture how she was affected by her many losses and how she overcame the pain of those losses through prayer. Her story of faith is wonderfully inspirational.
