Someone You Know

Someone you know is suffering.

Someone you know cries month-after-month when looking at a negative pregnancy test.

Someone you know cringes when asked when she will have children.

Someone you know puts on a brave face when faced with pregnancy announcements, baby showers and births but is crying on the inside.

Someone you know is spending tens of thousands of dollars to get pregnant.

Someone you know wonders if being a parent will really happen.

Someone you know stares at the guest bedroom, dreaming of a nursery but realizing it may just stay a guest room.

Someone you know is infertile.

One out of every eight women is dealing with infertility. Chances are you know one who is fighting this battle. I am one of them.
