There was a time not that long ago that all I wanted was to be a mom. I was already a stepmom but its not the same. My stepson already has a mom. I wanted a child that would call me mom. And now here I am, with two beautiful girls. Before I got to this point I never really thought about what I would do with this space where I have shared so many personal and emotional moments of my journey to get here. Having this space was a huge part of my journey. It brought me a lot of positive things. An outlet, a support system, and even new friends. I hope it is a resource for other people who are struggling with infertility.
I may be a mom now, but I am still infertile. With the help of science and the grace of God I overcame infertility but this part of me didn’t just disappear because I had my girls. I am still one in eight. I still feel it in my heart when someone says something insensitive or ignorant about infertility. My heart still hurts for those still struggling and waiting. I know how I feels. I didn’t forget that five years of waiting and praying hurts. I didn’t forget how it feels when everyone else seems to get pregnant by just looking at their husband.
All of the years of infertility are still a big part of who I am as a person and as a mother, but my day-to-day focus has now turned to something completely new. Being a mom. Actually, more specifically, being a mom of twins. I feel that this space I created to document my journey with infertility isn’t the right place to document my journey as a mom of multiples. Lately I feel like I have a lot to say and share, but I have had a hard time doing it here. I want to be sensitive. I have always loved reading about the success stories of others. It gave me hope. I also recognize that not everyone feels that way. I am so grateful that I have finally gotten to this place, and there is a whole new kind of crazy wonderful part of my life I want to share, but I have created a new place to do it.
