Thank you for spending a week with me and learning part of our journey. We have received an outpouring of love and well wishes through this entire week and I’m truly humbled. I didn’t think this would gain so much traction. I’ve realized that we stayed silent way too long. My own family didn’t even know the entire story because I didn’t talk about it.
My intention for writing and posting about our journey wasn’t to make you feel sorry for us or bring you down. It was definitely not meant to make anyone feel guilty for not knowing. It was merely to bring awareness to you that 1 in 8 of us are struggling, which means you know someone who has his or her own unique story to share.
I encourage you to listen, pray and #startasking about their journey. Don’t give advice, or tell them how to fix their problem. Just be their friend or family member and love them no matter what.
To those of you reading this who are experiencing infertility or miscarriage: Jason and I understand and would love to listen. #NIAW #startasking
