I want to continue sharing other people’s stories or articles from around the internet, so here are three new voices to share.
A Viral Photo Shows the Struggle of Infertility – A gorgeous picture that went viral. It depicts the honest journey one couple had to experience to get their daughter. Four years, 7 IVF attempts, and 3 miscarriages culminated in 1,616 shots.
After Infertility, Isolation, and Displacement, a refugee in Iraq finds a place to heal – The story of Rawa (her name changed for safety and privacy) who finds out she can’t conceive after she marries her husband. It’s a heartwrenching story of emotional abuse, war, leaving her home, and finding healing as a refugee. A must read.
‘Just a game-changer’: Regina woman channels infertility anxiety into monthly challenges – I really related to this woman’s path of trying to conceive. You get to a point where you need distractions to keep sane. I think these challenges are an excellent and creative way to cope.
If you have never experienced pregnancy loss or infertility, I can guarantee there is someone in your life who has. While the above stories may not be the same experiences for everyone, they can definitely open that window to more understanding and empathy for what everyone goes through. And for those of you who are in the midst of these unknowns or losses, you are not alone. May these words uplift and encourage you today.
