YOU ARE NOT ALONE

When I say I felt alone, it’s not necessarily that I didn’t feel I didn’t have support of family and friends. Because I did have support. But, it’s more that I literally felt alone – that no one really felt the pain I felt. People cared but no one could feel my pain with me. I was tired of being the only one to have to feel these emotions and upset that I couldn’t do anything to make to make it change or stop.

Since about 1 in 6 of couples will experience some form of infertility, odds are, you probably know someone going through a similar experience. You’re not alone! To carry the burden of infertility and not be able to share your feelings can add to that sense of despair. Find that support! If you know someone else who has or is currently struggling with infertility, reach out to them. Most likely they’ll have some good advice or thoughts to share with you. And you never know if your experience will touch and inspire others as well. We’re all here to help each other.

And even though I knew other people going through infertility and we chatted/emailed back and worth, of course I still felt alone. I often wondered if God was really even there walking with us during this time. I now realize that He was there every single step of the way and He will be during all seasons of our lives. He felt every feeling I felt and caught every single tear in the palm of His hand.
