Thank you to everyone who has shared this video online with others. Every person who shares this with another helps to raise awareness about infertility. Please continue this grassroots advocacy by continuing to share this video online! My hope is that this video illustrates the "everydayness" of coping with infertility and that by publicly "outing" myself and my struggle with infertility that I can help erase some of the stigma surrounding the subject. I hope I can be a voice for those women and couples who can't speak up or speak out for themselves.
What IF we no longer remain silent about our infertility What IF we give infertility a face, a name, a story? What IF we can become a positive force for change? What IF we don't give up hope?
