Hi there! Can’t believe we are finally here…I hope we will become fast friends!
We are two Southern girls, best friends for over 20 years and have walked with each other through some of the darkest moments in life…including what brought you to this site. Infertility may be just an 11 letter word, but it is a forever journey. Once you have been inducted into the club, you are always a member. We used to whisper or avoid the discussion so we would not have to answer question after question…especially when you may not even have the answers. But one day we got to talking and the revelation hit us…this is not a burden to be in this club…this is an elite group of women; built to handle some of the toughest moments, the constant “no’s,” the uncomfortable tests, the continual heartbreak…we have endured some of the darkest storms but in all things we know that without the rain, there would be no flowers….now we weren’t quite ready for the tornadoes and hurricanes that hit us….but we’ll get to that later….
SO…that is, in a nutshell, why we are here…to share our stories, hear yours, share in your journey, talk about the uncomfortable, address that big purple elephant in the room, breakdown the confusing and walk step by step through the journey of infertility and how to survive it…or act like you are! We hope to bring encouragement, light to the darkness, joy in the pain, reality of the drain and the hope of the miracles…that is Infertility. You will hear from us often, but you will also hear from readers just like you…those that are in the midst, those that have come out the other side, those still believing, those saving every penny to start, those terrified to be diagnosed…this is our safe place, our sounding board…our club! Talk soon….
