Infertility Isn’t for the Faint of Heart

Infertility Isn't for the Faint of Heart wendylmacdonald.com

Unless you’ve personally experienced infertility, it’s often wise to zip your lips when you’re with someone who is travelling this lonely road. A hug is much more welcome than glib words that have the potential to hurt an already vulnerable heart.

I wish I could have found an appropriate book to read on this topic when I was in the middle of my painful infertility journey. This is one of the reasons I want to have my memoir published.

It won’t be glib; it’ll be honest.

It won’t make you feel sorry for me; it will help you understand what many couples go through. And it will make you cry at the happy ending.

Today, I’m sharing a bit about my own infertility journey as a guest on Nan Jones’ blog. She’s an inspirational speaker, writer, and blogger I met on Facebook. I’ve read and reviewed her wonderful, award-winning memoir and have been following her ever since. She has a gift for encouraging women who are experiencing hurts and hardships. You’ll love her award-winning blog too.

By the way, her memoir is as poignant as they come. It’s a must read if you want to be motivated to pray for your pastor and his family. Church leaders need the body of Christ to surround them with protective prayers.

LOVE

Unless you’ve already been here

Please don’t share advice

Because my heart is broken

And I didn’t choose this way of life

Unless you’ve already been here

Please don’t minimize

The pain I feel is real

And so are the tears I’ve cried

Unless you’ve already been here

In the land of grief and despair

Wrap your praying arms around me

And let your love show me you care.
