EEW Magazine has been following the fertility journey of Bishop T.D. Jakes’ eldest daughter, Cora Coleman.

Now, the wife and adoptive mother is sharing the special moment she and her family officially welcomed 5-year-old Amauri Noelle Coleman.

“It was what they called the consummation day, but we called it an awesome life changing moment,” Coleman wrote in an April 1 post titled “Officially Expecting!” on her Fertility Faith blog.

“We jumped in the car prayed and headed to what would be the biggest most important day of our lives.”

After completing the legal courtroom proceedings, on March 22, at 8:45 AM, the adoption was official.

“My family was there supporting us, and my friends came, and called and made a big fuss over it, and it was the most life changing experience I had ever gone through,” she said.

“All of my life all I have ever wanted was to be a mommy,” Coleman added, expressing how wonderful it was for relatives and friends to celebrate her “dream coming true.”

EEW Magazine previously reported that at 23, Coleman was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Affecting as many as 1 out of 15 women, PCOS is a hormonal imbalance that often causes problems with women’s menstruation cycles, making it difficult to become pregnant. In some cases, small cysts, known as Fibroids, form on the ovaries.

Refusing to give up hope, at 24, Amauri’s mom underwent an in-vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure, but found out on December 19, 2011 it didn’t work out.

“My world in that moment shattered,” she recalled of the painful disappointment.
