Infertility & the Church

I realize that last week was National Infertility Awareness Week and that the week has come and gone. But I follow a number of support pages and blogs on this issue I’m so passionate about, and there was a theme I saw again and again as women from all over shared their truth and experience….

National Infertility Awareness Week 2018

I am now and forever will be one who speaks up for those like me who struggle to grow their families. While growing closer to God and being blessed with our beautiful little girl has certainly healed many wounds, there will always be a part of me that is broken and hurting because of this…

April Fools Day…

I’ve shared here before that I’m not much of a fan of April Fools day… the point of this holiday honestly escapes me. I often find that the pranks people play on one another aren’t really funny but often cruel… and it’s hard for me to wrap my mind around a day being dedicated to…

PCOS, Insulin Resistance, and Food

So on Friday I talked a little about consistency and food and mentioned how PCOS can complicate that sometimes. Today I want to talk about that a little bit because while PCOS effects a huge percentage of the population, not very many people know about this side of it. So first a quick overview… PCOS…

The Why’s of Infertility…

One of the greatest joys and heartbreaks of leading our group, The Hopefuls, is walking with these amazing ladies through their journeys.

Today…

Today… Today a couple is hurting. The years of hoping and trying and waiting… Their hearts yearn for a child to hold – to share this Christmas season with. Another year passes, they’ve watched countless others grow their families, and yet they remain a family of two… the aching feels almost too much to bear….

Halloween 2017

Well I meant to get this post written for yesterday but life happened and it didn’t go up. So it’s coming to you a day late instead. Growing up, Halloween was always fun even if I wasn’t always incredibly creative or over the top with my costumes. I think I used the same doctors coat…

There Is No “Just” in Adoption

I’ve shared many a post about what not to say to someone struggling with infertility and shared some of the hurtful things people have said to us. One of the hardest things to be asked was “Why don’t you just adopt?” Yes – I am now the mother of a beautiful little girl thanks to…
