NIAW

This week (April 25-May2) is National Infertility Awareness Week.  While I know I haven't been touched personally by my own infertility (although I had a gut feeling that we would...we did get a diagnosis of semi-fertile), this is a subject that touches my heart deeply.  I've shared in the joys and sadness of so many people who have suffered from infertility.

I have many feelings about the topic, but don't think I can do them justice and also don't want to make any of my friends who are currently suffering feel like I think I know what you're going through or have gone through.  I don't and I never will.  But just know that my heart aches for all of you to be able to reach your goals of becoming parents. 

This post is in honor of all those warriors out there and to make you all more aware of the topic.  I read a few blogs of women who are currently suffering and I'm sure they can speak much better than I can on infertility.  Please visit them and educate yourself--try to get a feel for what they might be going through.  And, if you're the praying type, say a prayer for them.  I do every single day.

My thoughts are with those who are TTC. I know the journey well and while it didn't end the way I had hoped, I still have hopes and prayers for those out there who are suffering will, in the end, have a beautiful, healthy babies.
