I will admit that I am new to the whole blogging sphere and sometimes I find myself lost as to where to look and where to go ... I have found several blogs that I really enjoy and visit regularly. I have also found several blogs that I do not enjoy and wonder why the heck they are so popular. I will be the first to admit that I do not know all the proper blog etiquette. I have tried to start leaving more comments because indeed is that not what people want, are comments! But recently I have found myself following a few blogs of women who are battling and/or finding peace with infertility ...
My heart goes out to these women, couples, and families who are trying to balance their lives around infertility. As I read these blogs I feel such compassion for these people but I always freeze when it comes time to comment ... infertility is not something that I have ever dealt with, matter-a-fact one of my very dearest friends, who has faced this battle refers to me as Fertile Mertle. It is true, I have five children and pregnant for number six.
I will never claim to know how infertility feels but I know that I have seen infertility take over someones life and despite a great battle, really consume every part of her being! I have also seen her survive and although I know there are still tough times she is a strong and wonderful person! I also know how important is was for me to have children . In high school while all my peers were planning college and careers, I was dreaming of marriage and children.
I would like to use this post to honor all the women, couples, and families who are battling infertility, my heart goes out to you and I send strength your way. I found this song very powerful, it makes me cry every time I listen to it.
I borrowed this song from Adventures of Baby Making, one of the blogs I have been lurking at but have not yet commented on because I just am not sure what to say. A few other blogs that I have been visiting are: Maybe If You Just Relax, Coming2Terms, and No Regrets. I am sure there are many other blogs, stories and just people who are battling infertility, this is for you too.
