I’m setting here just crying my eyes out. These are truly wonderful. Thank you so much for being a “face” of infertility. We need more people to raise awareness. You are an amazingly strong woman. BTW, I added you as a friend. XO

The adoption picture just broke my heart. You’re both so brave to take part in raising awareness about this subject.

@dodgercpkl:  This was very personal to you, I can tell – it really came across in the photos. I can relate to you as someone who was also diagnosed with PCOS, and although I am not TTC yet, I imagine it will not be the easiest thing in the world, seeing as how I’ve gone 3 months without a period.

However, in the one where you talk about people who “kill” their children, I hope you are not referring to abortion. I can safely say, as a person who had an abortion 4 years ago, that it is highly offensive to assume just because we once ended a pregnancy means we’ll never be worthy of having a healthy pregnancy. I want children very, very much, however, I did not want a child with that person at that time.

I didn’t know if that’s what you meant, but I just thought I would throw it out there.

@QueenOfSerendip:  I assumed the OP meant mothers who drown their kids in a bathtub and other such crazy nonsense. If the OP meant abortion, then I feel differently about the pictures. I don’t believe in blanket judgemental statements that turn grey issues into strictly black and white.

@MrsPanda99:  That’s what I was hoping, too. That’s what I got out of it when I originally saw the sign, but then (being the highly suspicious person I am), it occured to me that she could be talking about abortion. Ugh, it’s such a tricky subject. Obviously it’s terrible to be infertile, or to struggle with fertility at all, but a woman’s uterus is her own to do with what she wants.

NOT trying to start a discussion about abortion, though. 🙂 OP, I’m sorry for your struggles and so glad you can be so open about them. That is not easy to do.

@dodgercpkl:  Wow these are SO moving. As a woman who has suffered a miscarriage myself I cannot possibly seem to comprehend the strength and bravery it takes to face 6. I hope this project and your photos bring much more awareness to how common this actually is. The photo with you and your hubby made me tear up, such raw emotion. You are so brave for doing this!

@dodgercpkl:  Thanks! I’m sending good vibes your way too. I honestly can’t imagine the devestation of multiple losses. As hard as it might be, trying to remain as positive as possible will pay off. You’re better than PCOS.
