Our journey through infertility, failed adoptions and now parenthood through the miracle of embryo adoption/donation.

Monday, April 22, 2013


This week is both ICLW and NIAW. So what does that mean? Is it text speak for something? Nope! It looks like ti though. They are actually two separate events. ICLW is a monthly challenge to comment and get to know other infertility bloggers. You can find more info to the right. See that little box over there? Up just a little. Yep, there is it. Click it and you can read all about it.

NIAW is National Infertility Awareness Week. Not much explanation is needed for that one. :) So what does that mean to you and me? It means that this is the time to spread the word. Do something to help educate others on infertility. Or maybe share your struggles with someone. IF is such a taboo subject (maybe its because of s-e-x or, dare I say it, sperm is involved??) and we deal with a lot of misconceptions and inconsiderate comments. This is partly due to the fact that people know little about infertility. They just don't understand it. But we can help them understand by breaking the silence. Whether it is a Facebook status, a blog post or just telling a close friend about your struggle. Whatever it is try to find a way to help spread the word this week. And then let us all know what you have done and maybe help someone else find their courage.

  2. Hi from ICLW! It's so amazing how hurtful people can be -- and not even know -- due to lack of information!
