T.D. Jakes Daughter, Cora, Blogs about Infertility


T.D. Jakes eldest daughter,  Cora Coleman, spoke candidly about becoming a Mom, dealing with infertility and getting healthy, recently on her blog.

Special shout out to the happy couple for realizing that children in our country living in foster homes deserve permanent and stable housing in addition to lots of love.

Congrats Cora and Richard on becomming the soon to be legal parents to your daughter and may God bless  as you continue on your journey to bear biological  children.

By Psalm 127:3 says, “Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him.” Bishop T.D. Jakes’ oldest daughter Cora, who wed Richard Coleman in June 2011, is praying to reap such a “reward” in 2013. The wife and foster mother is sharing exciting news about her health and adoptive daughter Amauri.

In a blog post titled “I Already Have It,” dated Feb. 11, written in Cora’s “Fertility Faith” online journal, she said, “My journey of infertility has been an uphill climb. My body is healed, and I can try to get pregnant without any help.”

Preparing to travel the road to motherhood, she continued, “My husband and I are working on getting our bodies healthy, and getting ready for this to be the year of the promise.”

In the meantime, Cora, who has struggled to conceive due to a disease called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)—It causes small cysts to form on the ovaries, affecting anywhere from 5%-10% of women—has much to celebrate.

She and her husband Richard are close to completing the adoption process for their “outstanding, dramatic, beautiful little girl” Amauri, who has been in the couple’s care since March 30, 2012.

“I truly can not remember life before her,” Cora wrote, clearly smitten with her soon-to-be fully adopted daughter.

Aside from Amauri, the Colemans are caring for two other foster girls, which she admitted is “a lot.”

Yet, the devoted mother seems to enjoy the challenge of providing love to children in need of safe and stable homes.
