I was supposed to be unable to conceive, so I was elated and strongly believe/believed that this baby was bestowed on us by God. I had actually recommended two friends to the same Chinese physician with the same problem/problems. One of them had to abort the baby after four months of pregnancy as the baby had Down syndrome. The other couple had a miscarriage. Some people might think that I was just lucky or it was just mere coincidence that I was able to conceive. But I strongly believe/believed it was all due to my faith in God.
1. Should it be 'believe' in both cases? I doubt because I think it should be 'believe' since I still believe.
2. Is 'actually' needed?
3. Should it be 'problem' or 'problems'? It refers to the inability to conceive.
4. Are there any other errors in the text?
Thanks in advance.
