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
