You have ruined my perfect pregnancy announcement
You have ripped down the decorations at my baby shower
You have turned my babies’ names to ashes in my mouth
You punch me in the gut when I see a baby bump
You slap me in the face when dare to hope that this could be it
You push me down when I try to get back up
You tap me on the shoulder when I’m looking ahead
You lurk in dark corners when I’m bathing in the sun
You sleep in between my love and I at night
You have made me stronger than I ever thought I could be
You make me fall in love again every day
You have given me new friends
You have shown me the true meaning of empathy
You have taught me to fight when I have no fight left
You have taken away my ability

Yes it has.
Beautiful post.. Brought tears to my eyes. No one truly understands the impact of infertility that hasn’t gone through it.
Thank you. 🙂
I shared this with another blogger this morning and I believe it can be used here. I saw a verse on facebook this morning. While it meant a different meaning for me, the outcome is the same.
Philippians 1:6 says, “He who began a good work in you will continue to perform it until it’s complete.” One translation says, “He will bring you to a flourishing finish.” Not a defeated finish where you barely make it. You’re going to come to a flourishing finish, a finish more rewarding than you ever imagined.
That’s uplifting. Thank you for sharing.
