One way I have reached out to the infertility community is for the past year share on this blog daily themes that address different issues with Infertility/Adoption/Loss. I want to offer hope and healing to couples who want a family, or want to expand their family.
Following is the format I use:
Miracle Mondays: Faith-based infertility support and book reviews of faith-based infertility books
The Truth about Trying Tuesdays: Facts and Statistics about Adoption/Loss/Infertility, the more you know the better you are able to make informed decisions
While you Wait Wednesdays: Weekly tips/activities to help deal with the waiting (2ww, waiting for “the call”, waiting for adoption, general waiting, dealing with disappointments)
The Thursday Thinker: A weekly question to ponder/comment on, based on current events in the infertility/adoption world
Financial Fridays: Advice on how much things cost and how to afford them, from infertility medications to adoption.
National Infertility Awareness Week is a week to come together to educate others about the struggles of infertility and bring hope to those who are simply trying to have a family. Your neighbor who just had a miscarriage, the lady in your Sunday School class that has an only child, the single woman at work that has been married for five years but has no kids. All of these women may be struggling with infertility. Maybe its you? Maybe you have been unable to conceive for more than a year and it’s time to get help. There is help out there!
