Hello 42


Goodbye 41; Hello 42

The days may be long but the years are always short.



We are 1 in 8

Listen up — We are 1 in 8. I may have been the one with endometriosis and adenomyosis, but my husband was there with me, every step of the way. He administered my injections, attended countless appointments, nursed me through procedures and surgeries, dried my tears, held my hand, and somehow never lost hope.

I wouldn’t have been able to endure 2 cycles of IVF and a miscarriage without him by my side. His love kept me going.

I know he would have made an amazing father.

April 23-29th is National Infertility Awareness Week. One in eight couples struggle to build a family – that’s an estimated 15% of couples in America. Despite what the media often portrays, infertility does not always end with a long-awaited and much-wanted baby. Many people, myself included, have surrendered to a childless life after struggling with infertility for years.

My husband and I are now moving forward, dreaming new dreams and making new plans. Although our hearts still ache, infertility has not broken us. We’ve learned that happy endings come in many forms.

To those struggling with infertility – you are not alone. Whether you pursue medical interventions, alternative treatments, adoption, surrogacy, fostering, prayer, childlessness — please know, with or without a child — you are enough, you are complete, and you are deserving of happiness.
