National Infertility Awareness Week 2013

2013-bloggers-challenge-badgeJoin the Movement!

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!

  1. Hi Cindy! I’m here from NIAW Bloggers Unite. Thank you so much for raising your voice in support of people who are struggling with infertility. And even more important than that, thank you for using your experience with infertility to share your faith. We really need more faith-based resources for infertile couples. I feel like so often in the faith community, there’s a lot of guilt about not trusting God enough or making the TTC journey an idol in our lives. That makes me so sad. So again, thank you for this excellent resource. I am so proud to be able to speak out alongside strong, faith-filled women of God like you.

    • Em, I’m glad we connected! I look forward to reading your story. Gulit is such a huge issue especially in the faith community. We have to do away with that. There are many well-meaning Christians that will tell us to “just be patient” or “if it’s God’s will, it will happen.” This approach is not offered for other health issues so we need to be aware of this and get support from the peolpe who really understand. The Bloggers’ Unite project is so wonderful for connecting with others, thank you for participating!

  2. I’m excited to read along, love the ideas of learning new things about infertility each week. Found you though Bloggers Unite
