NIAW posting update!

My FB post/status today was just some general info, etc on infertility via the CDC. Much to my surprise and amazement, a friend of ours sent me a message asking if my postings were because we were trying but having trouble, and that they have been trying as well and nothing so far at almost a year.

If nothing else, my goal with my postings has been achieved! She now knows she's not alone in this! I am very excited about connecting and getting closer to her because of this. Maybe I'll be able to pass on my IF experience and some tips/info/pointers to help them out. At the very least, I can be a shoulder of support for them as they continue on their baby-making journey.

One day into NIAW and I've already made a difference! My heart feels so full of hope right now. For them. For us.

  2. Coming out to others is such a big step! I sent an email to our relatives and close friends last month to finally share what we have been going through the past few years. I resent that email to a number of other friends and co-workers this weekend because I plan to go public on Face.book for NIAW and wanted a larger circle of people to hear directly from me instead of just seeing a mass status posting. You should be so proud of yourself! Happy ICLW and NIAW!

  3. Nice work! There is something about the secrecy about our reproductive health problems that makes life so lonely, even when we're surrounded by people who love us. You need the people who know the right things to say, who understand the unique pain and heartbreak of empty arms. Thank you for having the courage, and the hope, to reach out.
