National Infertility Awareness Week

Well, it’s National Infertility Awareness Week this week. Not like we really need a reminder in our home.

We bought our home (our first house) in October. We filled it with furniture and boxes of possessions. It gets messy and crazy with our three dogs… and yet it’s still empty. We long to fill our home with the laughter of children. We never thought we would have to go an unconventional route to do so, but God knew. He has prepared us for this moment. 

But out of awareness and kindness to others, please take a moment and pray for those who struggle with this burden of infertility. It’s a tough journey, and everyone’s story is different. 

And PLEASE be careful of your words… just as you never ask a woman if she is pregnant, asking a woman when they are finally going to have kids or another child is not okay. You never know what struggle she might be keeping quiet. Just a Public Service Announcement. Thank you.

  1. How true – We tried for 3 years to get pregnant before finally conceiving our twin boys and it used to kill me when people would ask when we were going to “finally” have a kid, or when we would start trying… It’s a really hard thing for a family to go through and my heart is with the two of you. If you want to talk adoption fundraising, give me a shout. I’ve done session giveaway raffles for another family before and helped raise a little…

  2. My precious girl……you are wise beyond your years. Great, caring advice. One day you will make the greatest mom to some very blessed little kiddos ( who will call me NANA) I love you Shontel. You and Andy are my heros.
