Jennifer Hesse knows the depths of longing for a child. She and her husband, Colin, endured several years of treatments, surgeries, and a failed IVF cycle before welcoming their first son through a "stork drop" adoption and second son via surprise pregnancy. In 2021 she gave birth to their third son, another surprise from the Lord.
While wrestling with her own grief, Jenn saw a need for women to find support as they faced the unique struggles of infertility. She co-founded a local support group at her church, then launched a second group when she and her husband moved to another state. After the Lord connected her and Kelley on social media, Jenn began serving as content director at Waiting in Hope Ministries, where she writes blog posts, develops social media content, and collaborates with a team of contributors.
She and her family enjoy their home in Willamette Valley, Oregon. When they're not swimming, exploring parks, or cheering for the Seahawks, Jenn's family plays board games and racks up late fees at the library.
