My infertility Still Makes Me Sad
I believe I have healed but I will never forget my story and it can still make me sad at times. I know you are probably thinking, "why does it still make her sad when she now has gorgeous twins?" Yes you are right to think that, but there is so much more to my story than just my infertility. It took us 8 years to have our babies, it was an emotional rollercoaster, it was expensive & my life was pretty much put on hold for those 8 years. When I wrote my book, Long-Awaited Child, about our journey to have a family there were a lot of tears remembering parts which just broke my heart but also there were tears of joy remembering the highs. It is not something I have been able to just move on from. There were some amazingly, selfless people who helped us along the way and without them we would not be the family of four we are today. I think of those people every day when I look at my twins, Bane & Daya.
I never want to forget the challenges we faced as it has made me the person I am today plus being able to share my story has given me more of a purpose in life where I am able to support and help others dealing with their own struggles.
As they say "tears come from the heart and not the brain."
