1:8


Did you know 1 in 8 people struggle with infertility? That's really a staggering number. This issue can be such an isolating thing to go through. You feel isolated from your friends with children, you feel isolated from the life stage you're "supposed to" be in and you can even feel isolated from your partner. But, when you immerse yourself in this community, and yes - it is a community of women and men, there is something oddly comforting about going through tragedy with others. You feel more empowered, you feel less ashamed. You learn the people close to you may have gone through some of the same issues and can support you in a way you didn't know existed. I have been so lucky to find myself in that community as well. Family, friends and even strangers that you garner an instant connection with because you find you share this common heartache, have grown my community - my village - by leaps and bounds. They say that it takes a village to raise a child, but sometimes it takes a village for the chance at even having one.


So for my Day Two of Infertility Awareness Week, I would like to offer you my second fundraiser.


It's a simple design, because who wants to wear a shirt emblazoned with "ASK ME ABOUT INFERTILITY!!" (maybe just me!). But it is a simple reminder that more people are struggling than maybe we think about on a day to day. It also has the "theme" bible verse that has become a calming mantra for me: "Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer" Romans 12:12


Maybe this campaign will do better than I could have imagined (and I hope it does) and just maybe I will see these shirts on my family, my friends, or maybe someone I randomly pass in Kroger and I just can't tell you how much even the thought of that possibility uplifts me!



And if you are struggling with infertility and still feel alone, in a bubble: DON'T!

Here are some resources for you:
