SHHH…We’re Infertile!

Infertility has always been taboo to talk about outside of your marriage and doctor.  Which is ironic since it's something that plagues millions of people everyday.  So why is it such a secret?  I know personally I feel that I am responsible and ashamed.  I struggle everyday desperately wanting something so beautiful and it not happening.  G and I have been struggling with infertility for well over 4 years now.  I have always kept “my secret” to a limited number of people because of my own feelings and fears of being judged by society.  So why am I talking about it now?

Over the last 4 years I have struggled with feeling alone and wanting someone to talk or just vent to.  I wanted to know that all those feelings (rational or irrational) were normal and that other women were just as “crazy” as I was.  I wanted to hear stories of couples in the same situations as G and I and know we weren’t the only ones on this journey.  I was too afraid to get out of my own comfort zone and talk about that dreaded word…INFERTILITY!!!  But now I know that I can break through those walls of secrecy and shame and share my story.  My life’s mission is to be a mom.  This has been my only true ambition since I was a teenage girl babysitting the neighbor’s kids.  Through this blog I will show the trials and triumphs that we go through in our journey to build our family.  I will share where we are in the process of building our family, the stupid things that come out of people’s mouths when it comes to infertility as well as my faith while on this path.  I hope that I can shed light on this growing epidemic in a funny, faithful and heartfelt way! 

Stick around because you never know what is going to come out of my mouth!!!

    1. Thanks so much Megan! I have been avoiding doing this for a long time even though I felt that I was being led to speak out...I was dragging my feet because I was scared and uncomfortable! We are excited about all the opportunities and hope that we can share some hope and help for others.
