Infertility on Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of the beautiful women out there who are mothers. While most people are celebrating you all today (and for good reason!) I wanted to share with you a reminder of the women that people often forget about today...
Happy Mother's Day to all of my amazing infertility community... While they may only be mothers in their hearts, they have tried and sacrificed so much for the chance to be a mother. Extra prayers and happy thoughts for them today! One in eight people (often silently) fight the same battle I've been fighting. And please, please, please- if you know anybody who has ever miscarried, please remember that today is for them too. I know many of us celebrate the moms who are lucky enough to be holding their children tight today, but motherhood goes far beyond only those who have that blessing!
