Infertility - @carynrich

"I’m Caryn and I choose to wear the AWARE necklace for infertility. We suffered though 5 years, 15 treatments, 5 miscarriages and the loss of a child to finally get us to the family of our dreams. Infertility still has a stigma attached to it and I am trying to change that one person at a time. I proudly wear this necklace so that other women know that I support them and know what it’s like to be in their shoes. It’s beyond heartbreaking when all your friends and family are making pregnancy announcements and you so badly want to make one too. So I stand with the couples who are the 1/8 who must travel the infertility journey. I applaud you as you find the strength to put one foot in front of the other each day. I stand with you though the daily blood draws, ultrasounds, indecent exposure of your privates, doctor appointments and test tube baby making. I’m with you when you have been asked for the hundredth time “why don’t you have any children”?. I share the sting from the sometimes multiple shots and the bruises you wear being a part of the club you didn’t ask to join. But mostly, I want you to know that it will happen to you and that you should never give up on your dreams. Baby dust to all the mamas in making. I love you and I see you and I stand with you!" @carynrich
