When Andrew and I began our path through the life of infertility, we made a conscious decision to live that life out loud. When we got pregnant with the twins, we took that to a whole new level, sharing our experiences in this blog. Since that time, countless phone calls, conversations, emails and messages have assured me that God is using our story. We are no different from any other couple facing difficulties while building their family, except that God has given us the grace to be transparent about it. And in small ways, I believe that God is using our transparency for good. But here's the catch--when you decide to live out loud, when you decide that God has called you to transparency, that means you must share the good and the bad. You must be honest about both sides of the infertility coin. After all, not every treatment works. Not every IVF (or other treatment option) ends with a beautiful baby in your arms. Fertility treatments are never a guarantee...not even close. So with a heavy heart, I feel compelled to share the latest chapter in our journey.
