Hopeful Voices

It's National Infertility Week, a week brought to my attention by my dear friend Erin, and couldn't let it slip by without acknowledging the mark it's made/continues to make on me. I realize that there's no need to bring the problem to your attention as you most probably have friends, sisters, cousins, children, coworkers on their own journeys with infertility.

I just wanted to pass along a song I've always clung to but one that especially now resonates so deeply in my heart. Without faith, I have no idea how I'd manage to keep myself grounded and spirits in the places where they need to be. Sure, I have bad days. Sure, I get angry, upset, confused, anxious, heartbroken. Anyone struggling with infertility knows these emotions on a monthly basis, yet because of my faith I also get reassured, calmed, comforted,  and uplifted to fulfill the roles God has chosen for me right now.

"I'm not my own. I've been carried by You all my life."

Infertility is the biggest time marker of my 30s ... just turned 40. It kills me that I have to be reminded of this week almost every year.

I LOVE that song! Big hugs to you honey. One of my BFFs is struggling with IF and it breaks my heart, because if she doesn't get to be a mother this world will have missed out. I pray so hard for her to get pregnant all the time. Sometimes I am at a loss as to what to say, how to support her. You should write a post on that if you feel comfortable. I'd love some tips on how I can make sure I am supporting her as best as I can. Anyway, sorry for the long rambly post; and thank you for being strong enough to share with us!
