1 in 8
"We suffered through over two years of infertility before adoption was placed on our hearts. We drained our savings, spent hours at fertility clinics, took more medications and supplements than I can count, and I became a human pin cushion. Month after month we felt the sting of that negative pregnancy test, and that's putting it lightly. We were emotionally and physically drained. 1 in 8 couples will face infertility and 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. These aren't just numbers, these are your family members, friends, and coworkers. It's the woman who doesn't show up to baby showers because she can't take the pain it will cause. It's the woman sitting next to you at church on Mother's Day sobbing after finding out the last round of fertility treatments failed. It's the couple that smiles and says "not yet" when they are asked for the millionth time if they are pregnant yet. It was, and is, me. My heart aches for those of you who are going through these emotions right now. I want you to know you are not alone! And I am here to tell you that it will be worth it someday. Every tear cried, shot given, penny spent. It will all be worth it. Someday you will be watching your baby play in their playroom, in awe of God's work. Don't give up hope. #Iam1in8 #1in8 #infertilityawareness #mightymamasbyadoption"
