ENCOURAGING WOMEN THROUGH INFERTILITY & MOTHERHOOD.
After a long four years of infertility, two rounds of IVF and doing the whole two babies at once thing, I am passionate about encouraging women through two of life's hardest seasons: infertility and motherhood. I'm just a simple, small town Alabama girl that has been given a story that I didn't choose. A story that I hope to use to encourage, challenge and bring hope to other women fighting the good fight.
So, whether you're in the thick of infertility desperately praying for a baby to call your own or you're a new mama just trying to survive the day, welcome. I'm glad you're here. Grab my hand and let's do this thing. You are seen, you are loved and you are not alone. We are in this together.
I was right where you are not that long ago. Frustrated. Tired. Not getting the answers that I wanted. Facing decisions that seemed impossible to make. I'm here to help you walk this road that none of us chose. Infertility just plain sucks and there are so many things couples face in the midst of it that seem so unfair. I created this resource to hold your hand through the process, remind you that you are not alone and equip you to confidently make some of the hardest decisions.
Why do fundraising shirts have to be so ugly? I am here to help you change that. Fundraising can be overwhelming and so often people don't even know where to start. This resource includes artwork files, step by step instructions for setting up your online shop to sell the products and a financial outline to help you meet your goal.
Can we just stop this? The comparison game has gotten out of control. When we were walking through infertility, the first question I always got was "How long have you been trying?" As if whatever number I said had to meet this person's standard of long enough to be sad about it. And then sometimes as I shared my story with others who had journeyed this road before me, it's like my story didn't measure up. It wasn't as sad. We hadn't been trying as long. We were still so young. And on and on.
“Today was really hard. Jumping back into the world of testing and preparing for IVF has been like ripping the bandaid off. For months, I have been able to find such contentment in the season of life we are in because I knew this was in the distant future. But the closer it has gotten, the more my emotions have become a roller coaster. As we sat in the waiting room at CCRM, I looked around and seemed to be surrounded with women much older than me. I had this moment of foreshadowing like - what if that’s me? What if this doesn’t work? I am about to be 30 and my clock is ticking. I never felt the pressure of my age until now. With this big milestone looming around the corner, I am feeling so much more like the clock is ticking.
Dear Alan Jackson,
Thank you for creating precious memories for my family. I grew up on your music. You know, way down yonder on the Chattahoochee, livin' on love, chasin' that neon rainbow and can't forget about gone country. The good stuff. I've always been a fan of your music, but honestly I didn't know all that much about you. I guess I assumed you were just a good ole' down home country boy. Little did I know, you would be a source of encouragement, hope and God's truth for me during one of the hardest seasons of my life.
