I know there are many different types of readers with different stories who come here.
I wanted to check in to clarify a few things after a fellow blogger commented on an old post.
One: not everyone gets a ‘happy ending’ in this hell of a road. I get some people have to choose to live again instead of circle around in this purgatory. That takes more strength and grace than I even have. My heart is with those of you who are forced on this path and find a way to cope and even truly thrive.
Two: there is way more to life than being a Mom. You can contribute to society, find happiness and healing and meaning in so many other ways. I get that and I know that. I hope that you are able to feel that even in the darkest of times.
Three: being the Mom of an own egg IVf baby and of a donor egg baby (life’s greatest gift) there is zero difference to me between the two. If you are on the donor egg path or considering it, from this one perspective it is all joy and blessing.
Four: I don’t know you or your story or your pain but I do know you are not deserving of this IF/ RPL road. No one is. I hope you don’t feel alone. Lots of love.
