NATIONAL INFERTILITY AWARENESS WEEK

It’s National Infertility Awareness Week! As many of us know, difficulty conceiving a child is not uncommon. In fact, 1 in 8 women and men are diagnosed with infertility. (www.resolve.org)

If you know our story, you know that Nick and I are one of those eight. After almost exactly four years from when we started trying to have a baby, we were blessed with our two miracle babies by IVF, fraternal twin boys, Elijah and Will, who were born in September of 2010.

Infertility shouldn’t be a taboo subject. Be aware, be informed, and be supportive.

Take time to watch this wonderful video. It is the song, "I Would Die for That" by Kelley Coffey. It is very touching - have a tissue close by!




Here is another amazing video, which gives a little insight into how someone with infertility may feel.
