About a week ago I posted thoughts surrounding my journey of infertility. Thank you to everyone who took the time to read the lengthy post but also to comment and “like”. My heart was so full reading the supportive comments and the kind words to me and my cutie hubby. Almost as soon as I posted, I started seeing your supportive words….but something else happened….something that isn’t visible on Facebook. I started getting phone calls, text messages, emails and private messages from friends who had struggled with the same heartbreak and mourned silently…other people ask me if they could share the post with their daughter or neighbor or friend….other people who had no idea how many triggers there are in an infertile person’s world….other people who said that the post captured exactly what they had been trying to say for years….other people who had finally accepted that it wasn’t going to happen for them and were just like me – trying to find peace.
Many of you asked about the book….> Living the Life Unexpected: 12 Weeks to Your Plan B for a Meaningful and Fulfilling Future Without Children by Jody Day, my new personal hero. It is only available on bookdepository.com right now. She also has a group called Gateway-Women (based out of the UK) which has great info. I am not “over it” but I now have a plan.
This is no longer a sob story. This is about me feeling empowered. This is about me taking over. I am honored to have you as part of my tribe. I am looking toward the future. And I am taking you with me.
