Where do I begin?

I've been contemplating the start of a blog for some time now. I once read that if you can find your voice during infertility (IF), it can provide you with so much solace, but boy have I struggled to commit to doing this. I think my hesitation has been that it has taken me 2 years since this struggle began to even be able to find my own voice. Like many of you, I've never been a writer, but have had an impressive internal dialogue going my entire life. I decided it's high time to translate my internal chit chat to this blog in hopes that it will help me to cope, and if it helps a few of you that's just icing on the cake!

Since my inception into the IF community, I've been amazed at all of the incredible women who put their stories out there. I admire each and every one of you and in so many ways I feel that I have a family out there, even though we'll never meet. This crazy IF journey  has been a huge turning point in my life and for better or worse I am forever changed by it. 

If I  had to sum up what this journey means, it would be to never give up on what our hope have a family of our own ONE DAY.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Hi Olivia!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am glad you decided to take the blogging plunge! Welcome! So far, it seems that you are an excellent writer. I think that ICLW is a great way to make your debut!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I think you are so smart for jumping into blogging while you're in the midst of the infertility craziness. I didn't start until after Bean was born and now I realize how very much it could have helped me back then. I'm really interested to learn more and am hoping very much that this journey doesn't last much longer for you.
