A letter to the woman who is longing to be a mom on Mother’s Day.
You are not alone.
Mother’s Day can be an extremely painful day for women who are struggling with infertility. Not everyone understands this or even thinks about it. I do, because I was you. For 7 long years I was you. I know how you feel.
As Mother’s Day was celebrated by friends and family every year all around me it was almost unbearable to watch and be a part of. My mom died when I was little so Mother’s Day was already hard, and not being able to have a baby of my own made it so I didn’t even want to acknowledge the day. For so long no matter what I did infertility beat me over and over so Mother’s Day was just another reminder of that. I would have preferred forget the day all together.
