I’ve been thinking about that saying I hear a lot of these days.
“Everything happens for a reason.”
I have to admit that I do a ton of eye rolling every time I hear that. What if it is true, though? Maybe I have been dealing with the dreaded infertility for a reason. I spent the greater part of this week inconsolable over another little snafu in my journey to have a family. I’ve questioned myself and my womanhood all week. Is this happening to me because I’m a bad person? Was it one of those stupid things I did in college? Maybe I don’t deserve to have children….
Lucky for me, I have a wonderful support system made up of family and close friends. I started to feel better this afternoon and then suddenly I have an epiphany. I have needed support and gotten it, but not all women going through infertility are as lucky as I am. I need to join the fight in supporting infertility!! Ta da!
So, I became a member of RESOLVE– The National Infertility Association. So, there you have it. I’m looking for volunteer opportunities to help other women deal with the same things I’m going through. There is also a place to make donations on there. Pledge one if you dare!
