You've Got Mail

I started this blog for myself and for close friends; that way they could follow along with us through our journey to parenthood, and so I could keep it off  Facebook (for the most part). Today however, I got an email from someone, a stranger, that saw a thread I left with a link to my blog on a status update regarding Hugh Jackman's battle with infertility.

This is what she said: (no editing has been done!)

'One of my friends shared the link to the Huge Jackman story about infertility and I saw your comment. I checked out your blog and found it refreshing...I have PCOS and have been struggling to get pregnant for a few years. I just wanted to say thanks...thanks for publicly expressing how I feel. It reminds me that I'm not alone!' ~A.M.W

And another one! 

"You certainly have a way of describing things in simple terms so that us peons can understand. I didn't realize how diverse the entire infertility world is as far as medications and treatments available. I know that you will find something that works and when it does, you'll be blessed with a child that you'll love that much more. All your blood, sweat, and tears will reward you in the best way imaginable. And thank you for not using a bunch of big words." ~ MAK


  1. I love this. I love the fact that we can help others feel that they are not alone in this fight. So many people feel ashamed and hide their infertility from everyone.It is nice to know that we have support out there.

  2. Yeah, it's pretty awesome! I didn't know I would end up with a purpose behind this blog other than for personal reasons. I am glad I could help! I also got a message last night with someone telling me how much they appreciated the simple terms. Infertility is complicated. I want to un-complicate it for them the best I know how.


Thanks for visiting my blog! Be sure to leave some comment love!
