Dear Infertility

Dear Infertility,

It’s been three years since I met you and I have come to find that you are a strange friend.  I feel so conflicted about meeting your acquaintance- most days I wish I had never met you and then there are moments when I am thankful for all the things you have brought to my life.

Because of you, I have heard the silence of family who do not speak of my losses or the difficulty of walking this road day in, day out.   But because of you, I have felt the comfort of strangers who talk about my losses and their words have been a healing balm.  Like the lady who looked like Mary Kay Ash with bright pink lipstick and pulled me aside at an event and told me she was praying for me and that she saw my mother’s heart when I spoke of my babies.

Yes, because of you, strangers feel like family and family feels like strangers....
